2021.10.20 12:59 Juice_10 Unpopular Opinion: in response to the arcana paywall complaints, Dota is over 15 years old. We're not kids anymore, and you should be able to afford $200.00 for your primary hobby.
Before the Reddit mob lynches me, yes, I am mindful of the economic disparities between nations across the world. Yes, I understand that 2020 was rough on many people and financial stability is a privilege. And yes, I am well aware that I belong to one of the most detested demographics in the gaming community--pay pigs. With all that in mind, Dota 2 is approaching 20 years old, so most of our community is well into their 20s and some, like me, in their 30s. Valve knows this. Hence, valve assumes able bodied persons ages 25-35 should be able to afford $200.00-$400.00 a year on their hobby. If not, then maybe the 1000s of hours of playing time you invested in your lovelorn obsession should have been better spent pursuing more important obligations.
To clarify, I am not suggesting financially less fortunate gamers "pull themselves up from their bootstraps" and "fix" their situation for the sake of affording virtual hats, nor am I suggesting that they are lacking in any way simply because they cant shell out a couple hundred bucks for something they seem to desperately need. I am merely pointing out that by now, at our age, the world, and especially profit driven companies like Valve, expect us to be "financially stable." Remember the Mercedes C-class memes? Do you think Mercedes would throw away ad money on viewers who couldn't afford their overpriced $40,000.00 car?
If you still feel upset about a $200.00 Arcana, remember, Dota 2 is literally free-to-play (aside from the $1,000s you spent on your hardware, GPU, internet, and gaming chair). There are other hobbies that have real paywalls. Good luck getting into golf, tennis, polo, droid racing, or even ceramics with $200.00 USD. Hell, even surfing costs around $300.00 - $500.00 a year and if those broke, meatheads can afford that, so can we.
As previously stated, Dota 2 is free-to-play. Sure, you missed out on that dope af Shaker Arcana, but it wont make you play any better or worse. Your sloppy Ancient/Divine echo slams will still whiff, your blink dagger timings will still be 5-10 min late, and you still wont build a Utility item to save your life (literally). So stop paying attention to what other people have and what you don't have. At the end of the day, Arcana or no Arcana, you're still a hard-stuck Ancient scrub, approaching 30 years old, mindlessly grinding away for virtual accomplishments. . . and that's what really matters.

2021.10.20 12:59 borko00 Not being active in social media turns things really difficult
First of all, sorry for bad english.
I'm not the social media kind of guy. I just am not. Tried many times being more active, but i feel posting about my life on instagram or facebook is just not my thing. I don't feel confortable at all and i think it's a waste of time. But often times, i feel not being active in social media really turns down some girls. I think many people use it as a way of showing how insteresting they are and how their lives are busy and since i don't post much the message i'm giving is that i'm not interesting at all and i think girls are drawn to guys who lives fun lives.
How to overcome that?

My job can be physically demanding at times and there is no way I could be off for 8wks. I’m curious as to how you guys are doing it. short disability?

2021.10.20 12:59 GOTTA_GO_FAST [WTS] RS Regulate 307/AKOG/PA 3x Yugo Combo (NC)
RS Regulate 307 (NOT 307M or MS) AKOG Low Upper mount and PA 3x prism. FULL disclosure I am selling this so cheap because of the RS307 being an older version and the one of the mounting screws on the AKOG is clapped out. It still holds zero and haven't had any POI shifts. If you have some EZ grip handy or are good with tools you should be able to get the screw out but you can just slap the whole setup on your AK and be fine as well. I have the original mounting setup for the 3x as well.

2021.10.20 12:59 Apprehensive_Flan330 please help!
Hello! So lately i have been feeling VERY sick, neither me or my family have an idea of what it could be and i’m not in a good financial spot to visit the doctor unless needed. here are some symptoms! •Severe lightheaded •Stomach ache •Little to no appetite (mostly no) •I’m either too hot or too cold, no i between •Very painful headaches These have been going on for about 3 days now, the headache has gone away from meds but i am still lightheaded and still having stomach pains. I will say i do smoke on a daily, (marijuana) but usually only 1 time a day before bed or no more than twice (i only smoke @ night) i’ve never had a problem when it comes to smoking but lately i’m not able to without throwing up, which upsets my stomach even more. It’s very hard for me to eat as well, i’ve only been able to eat bananas, bagels, pasta, and a few other things that don’t upset my stomach. i can’t think of anything else i could add some of anyone has any questions or an idea as to what is going on please comment! Thank u!

2021.10.20 12:59 eliaos_ 17, sugar cravings and terrified of gaining weight…
5’9, 134 pounds new here.
I just had a chocolate muffin two days ago and I’m craving it again but I’m terrified of having another.
Back until this year, I used to eat lots of bad foods. Bucket of Ice cream, white rice, crispy foods, you name it.
Over the start of the year, I wanted to change and become slimmer since my confidence really dipped. I did the Keto diet but modified it to be low calorie (like say under 1000 with skinny rice, really small lemon cream cheese pancakes - 90 kcal, no fruit, lots of fish, etc) and exercised. Thing is, I read of the keto diet causing acne so, I switched to a diet of whole grains (bread, rice, etc…) low and no sugar snacks/dessert (Smart Sweets, Highkey Coconut Macaroons with sugar replaced with Allulose, no sugar added ice cream with fruit or Smart Sweets as toppings with non-dairy whip cream sometimes), and small cup portions of soup (examples like store bought vegetarian potato soup, miso soup), and of course fish and grilled chicken, with no dairy (though regular desserts once a week).
My breakfast examples would be an apple with 8 almonds, or banana coconut pancakes with sugar free syrup with apple slices and fruit toppings, or small cup (I think 1/4?) of three different Highkey cereal (sometimes with two tablespoons of pumpkin seed granola or another gram free cereal) with lots of fruit toppings such as pineapple, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, etc coupled with apple slices. Usually I have a shot glass of the syrup for dipping.
While my lunch could be a fruit bowl (again with sugar free syrup), salad, soup.
And dinner is mostly fish with brown rice, grilled veggies, and no soy soy sauce.
My friend (who has taken classes in health) tells me that unless I have 1000 calories of sugar, I have nothing to worry about because of my metabolism due to it still developing and such. Still, I’m nervous and my cravings are really stressing me out.
Do I really have nothing to worry about?
