You wanna take this to the fuckin streets?
you know what is not an endearing personality trait to have
the one where you fuck up with one of your friends - maybe you made a very inappropriate comment, or repeatedly kept shoving them to the side selfishly while you were off in your own bullshit - and someone tells you about it and clearly you’re going to learn from this and you’re sorry and you thank them for saying something
and then you still beat yourself up way more than you need to because to the outside world which is full of people fed up with fake non-apologies and angry denial and all that other shit that bad people do to get a free pass, it just never seems like you actually meant it until you feel so terrible about it that you just stop whatever you’re doing and want to give up on the rest of your day
this is what i do way too fucking often and i really don’t wish this on anyone else i care about
don’t be me
So last week I had to make a promotional ad about monster trucks for an assignment.
Then Mr.Torgue happened
Ive always kinda wondered if the preds just dont draft dynamic offensive players, or if Trotz defense-first coaching limits offensive development
Ask anyone and you’ll either get that Trotz puts in a system that prohibits David Poile from getting elite scorers/elite scorers from coming or that Trotz can only do so much with the crappy forwards Poile picks up/drafts, or that it’s both at the same time.
David Legwand and Martin Erat had all the tools, but never the consistency. Scott Hartnell was hitting his stride, then we could only watch as he went to Philly while Nashville had to focus on not letting the franchise move to Hamilton Fucking Ontario. Alexander Radulov, another player that had the tools, but a total headcase. And then there’s the whole “gave up Rich Peverley and watched him become a 70-point-per-season player in Atlanta” deal that happened a couple years back.
I’m really gonna be sad if Colin Wilson or Filip Forsberg turn out the same way - they’re still young guys with all the potential to be great offensive talents but Forsberg is injured and can’t get NHL ice time while Wilson’s just…not consistent enough right now? Again?
The AI drivers, once you get to National A-Class races don’t really get much faster. They just defend more aggressively/get in the way while you’re trying to charge from 10th to the lead in 3 laps.
That’s…kind of a buzzkill (and it was like this in GT5 at times). It means I can plow along through the single-player campaign and using prize cars in events means HELLA stockpiled bank from not going out and buying cars for every event.
btw I’m up to 33% completion.
