      It blows my mind that "troony" is still not filtered site-wide, while stuff like tbh or senpai is

        Ever want to play a Finnish wizard simulator that uses the Falling Sand physics engine where every pixel is simulated? Want to jump into a mineshaft and be assaulted by wild dogs, spiders, radioactive boogers, the Human Torch, and hillbillies with shotguns and dynamite? If your answer is yes, then this is the game for you

        frick forgot pic because I’m a homosexual

        Just cleared this needy bawd's A20 for the first time yesterday. Holy frick she is so much more dependent on specific cards and relics to function than the other characters its sad.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          she is the most relic-reliant character and has the most trap cards. lots of them are situationally useful and can brick your run if picked up at the wrong time (tactician, malaise, setup. backflip can brick you if not upgraded or if you already have a lot of block, etc). I’ve found playing a more balanced deck to be more effective with a bias towards attacks in act 1. She benefits most with a little bit of discard, little bit of draw from acrobatics/escape plan/prepared. Shivs do better on average for me because I fricking NEVER get offered catalyst at the right time

            My problem with shivs is that unless I'm offered Wraith Form, After Images (plurals), and a Kunai, I'll breeze through the game then get absolutely fricked by heart. How do you manage?

            • 4 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              honestly I skip the heart a lot because I’m focused on simply getting to act 3 consistently. once I can get there >75% of a20 runs I’ll go back and rethink my play, because it seems you really do have to build around fighting act 4

              some runs you just won’t be able to kill the heart with anything less than multiple after images, wraith forms, piercing wails, etc. nightmare becomes a really important card to consider at this level—another trap card that, when not upgraded, can become a curse but will save a run in the situation you described

          • 4 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            however, once you get experience clearing act 1 she becomes the best character imo. wraith form, piercing wail, dexterity, all her cheap draw cards make her really versatile and the easiest to go infinite with. also, she has calculated gamble and thousand cuts, my two favorite cards

    Minecraft was fun in beta, played it A LOT. now it's stock bottom footage for Joe Rogan shorts that the zoomers watchm

    Slay the spire was fotm in 2019. I don't get why people still play it. I have 11 hours in and I'm not going back for more.

      >Minecraft was fun in beta, played it A LOT. now it's stock bottom footage for Joe Rogan shorts that the zoomers watchm
      Ah frick off, you newbies love spouting that Minecraft got worse ever since beta.

      It's still the same game. Everything you could do in beta, you can do now. If we are grasping at straws, the only features that disrupt the beta gameplay style are hunger and phantoms, and both these can be easily disabled.

      its fruitless, everyone bypasses it anyway and then the word that it gets filtered to becomes a slang term for it.

      The filter successfully killed tbh/senpai, no one uses it anymore. Also bypassing features is bannable so mods would have an excuse to purge the low quality posters.

        everybody just says "tbdesu", adds a dot, or just lets it get filtered to tbh because everyone knows what they mean. fa.m is slang that went out of style years ago so obviously not many people use it. i see it used here more than any other site specifically because of the filter.

          Even if people keep using the filtered version, the word loses its meaning. I guess a better example would be "onions". It was the "troony" equivalent just a few years ago and you couldn't find one single thread without going through dozens of posts about onions. The filter put a swift end to that. People tried to use "onions" for one month, realized it wasn't the same thing and moved on.

            yes, but now you cant talk about actual onions without people thinking you're talking about soi.

    I like the other 3 but could never "get" into StS. I had some successful runs but it always seemed like I'd get buttfricked by RNG and could do nothing to prevent it, which means either the game was bad or I was bad, and I didn't really want to look at guides for it.

      There are times when the game itself fricks you in the ass and there’s nothing you can do. taking a route with a bunch of events and half of them are fights is tilting. but in general it’s a lot less RNG dependent than people think. you have a lot of control over the outcome and surviving an act with 10 or less health isn’t uncommon, meaning there’s mechanisms to mitigate damage just enough to barely survive. Also paying attention to pathing is the thing most newer players ignore because it comes with experience
