Detailed, Digestible Overview of the “Scam Royale” Situation

2021.10.23 00:58 yojojo3000 Detailed, Digestible Overview of the “Scam Royale” Situation

Quick Note: I am one of those players missing out on a ton of gold. 3,275,000 to be exact. And I would like to have it back, same as the other long-time players.
There is a lot of information (and misinformation) being tossed around in the frenzy of what is happening, as well as a lot of deserved (and undeserved) hate, so I’d like to dedicate this post as a grand summary of everything in a digestible manner, as well as a place where I can throw in my own fire extinguisher and throw in my own experience.
I: What’s going on? R: To put it simple, Level 14 is coming. That’s not the bad part though; the bad part is how they decided to implement Level 14.
I, for one, welcome a lot of the changes that came with Level 14. Here’s what’s changing:

Level 10 -> 11 upgrades are 10,000 gold cheaper (now 15,000 gold)
Level 11 -> 12 upgrades are 15,000 gold cheaper (now 35,000 gold)
Level 12 -> 13 upgrades are 25,000 gold cheaper (now 75,000 gold)
Total savings per card, up to Level 13: 45,000 gold
This is a buttload of information that I don’t want nor need to put here. Point is, it’s a lot smoother.
Now yes, it will now take about another year to max out an account, but it’s not outright terrible. Possibly unnecessary, yes, but not that big of a deal considering how they executed this. I love how they made things cheaper and easier to get during mid-game so that (possibly newer) late-game and end-game content is easier to get to. Overall I’m very impressed with how they decided to go about adding Level 14.
Now here’s the part that everyone is (or should be) mainly rioting about:
Long-time players will have already spent 25K, 50K, and 100K gold as well as a grand assortment of cards on upgrading each card in their collection. If prior upgrade costs are to be reduced to 15K, 35K, and 75K respectively, then shouldn’t these players be fully compensated for having spent more resources than what the people of the future will be spending? These people are indirectly getting literal millions of gold and cards taken away from their current progress. Shouldn’t they be compensated?
Yes, they should. But they aren’t.
The only thing that was [originally] compensated was the EXP. Card count losses were not compensated and gold losses were not compensated. At all.
To make things worse, people who were simply waiting for more gold to be able to max out their cards while sitting on a full collection of cards would actually get catapulted extremely far ahead of fully maxed players due to the technicalities of the system. This added much insult to injury on already-maxed players.
And to finally top off the event with a middle finger, the Slash Royale event prior to this made a lot of people dump all their gold into maxing cards, amplifying not only their newfound, sudden lack of preparation for Level 14 but also making them victims to this massive card loss.
It is very easy to understand why people would be outraged about this. I myself am very disappointed in this series of events and might consider retiring my near-6 years of playing Clash Royale, at least until everything gets resolved.
In recent news, SC Max did reply back to this and seemed unaware of this technical failure up until now. He apologized and belittled himself for his team’s mistake and is now going to compensate all players of their missing cards. This removes the severe advantage that lower-level players got from not maxing out their cards, which is a very welcome compensation.
But it is not enough.
While the card loss would have been the insulting part of “adding insult to injury”, the gold loss is the injury.
Gold is extremely difficult to come by, even with all the progression boosts added in recent. Every late-game and end-game player knows that. To not have compensation for the severe amount of gold now being thrown in a furnace is a figurative heart attack for all late-/end-game players.
And it’s not chump change, either. We’re talking ~4.6 million gold dumped in a fire. That’s enough to max out ~46 different cards out of the 103 cards in the game. That’s a good 3 years of progression completely wasted.
Now cobble this on top of the fact that several late-/end-game players are simply grinding the game to max their collection instead of actually enjoying the game (due to the absolute stale nature of the game).
Yeah, we can see why so many long-term players are quitting now.
We need gold compensation, too. I don’t want to let this game go, I really don’t. But if this doesn’t get compensated, then I can’t even see me myself grinding this game anymore.
Compensating gold will solve quite literally everything:
Please don’t forget to do this, guys. NOT doing this is a big mistake on its own.
I: I hate how this is the only change they are making— R: I’ll stop you right there. Supposedly there is much more to come in the update other than Level 14. It simply hasn’t been announced yet. I, for one, am certain that the rest of the update is going to be really, really interesting.
Yes, I understand if you have substantially high doubts, and I understand expressing your doubts, but unknown information is unknown information. Please, wait for it to be known before calling your shots too early.
Though I don’t think anything can compensate for that gold loss. Please compensate it directly, SC.
I: Let’s wait to see what other things the update has to offer first before judging too early. The results might surprise you. R: If SC can introduce something that makes up for a loss of 4.6M gold, then I’m all ears.

Let’s be real, that’s not gonna happen. Gold needs to be compensated on Day One.
I: Why are they deciding to only compensate cards and not gold? R: Honestly, I have no clue. Perhaps the new SC devs are unaware of exactly how harsh this gold loss is. Perhaps the new SC devs are now experiencing a little bit of a nervous breakdown of some sort over the sudden nuclear bomb that smashed both social media and their hopes. I’m not sure.
I: Insert conspiracy theory here R: I can’t prove or deny any of it. I can only guess.
However, I genuinely think that, realistically, the devs are simply (1) feeling over-pressured by recent events, and/or (2) they don’t fully understand the situation themselves.
Max and the other dude (sorry I can’t remember your name) are both relatively new community managers to this game and I wouldn’t put it past me that their potential inexperience with the game and its odd technical stuff genuinely lead to a confusion.
Yes, I know: “Why would they hire people who don’t even know how to do their job to near-perfection? That’s impossible. They know better.”
I think it’s stupid too. But, unfortunately, it is surprisingly common in any business, and no big business is exempt from this phenomenon.
Hell, even at my own workplace (a well-known restaurant), the higher-ups are cycling all different kinds of Head-Managers through our workplace, and every single one of them of them has had a dog-shit level of understanding of how to keep employees happy and functional. Handfuls of people quit their job at my workplace every time a new head manager is cycled in. Keep in mind that the workplace I work in has been in business for longer than I have been alive! And they’re still a really good business!
The only way I can explain this is with two simple words: Trust Shortage. And a severe one, too.
Trusting random people you’ve never heard of before to run your entire business is a high risk with a low payout. There’s a chance that their changes will bring new life to the business that it needed for so long, but you’re going to get about 999 people who will end up destroying your business before you find said person. There is a reason that businesses (and games) typically end along with their former owners.
Therefore it would make more sense to put {someone you already trust} in charge of your business, right?
Yes, you have a healthy supply of people you can trust, and that does reduce the risk by quite a considerable chunk that can’t really be passed up so easily. But that doesn’t mean that they will pay out any better than any random person. Trust is a funny thing.
Unfortunately, most managers will end up being quite poor on their first days simply due to this trust shortage. And I believe that this is the case today.
The only way you can get good managers (other than gambling your entire business for a profit) is to let new ones develop experience through trial and error, observation and sensation, and etc. These guys are relatively new here, so I think it is entirely possible that they really are just out of the loop on certain things.
Of course, that doesn’t denounce any of the conspiracy theories out there… but I like to call myself a reasonable, experienced person and take a stance in ^ this ^ position.
I: What can we do? R: Well, I wouldn’t advocate for a big boycott or a massive 1-star-review spree or anything, but if you feel like being (justifiably) angry animals, then I won’t stop you.
Ultimately, you should be assisting people like me by mass-upvoting professionally-done posts that informatively and respectfully address these issues in a constructive manner that these new managers can trust to digest. Managers are people too; people can do irrational things in the heat of the moment. God knows that I do such things too. So help me get this post to shine in front of the new devs so that they can take proper action, with advice from a community that they can trust.

When buying yogurt from store they always give you those little plastic spoons that obviously add to non-degradable waste. So I used them to make little ornaments for Halloween! It's not just a nice way to reuse the spoons but also a great craft activity for kids.
Here's how to make them:

2021.10.23 00:58 aipat95 Resources for someone experiencing homelessness

Hi all, I have friend currently in Santa Barbara, she is a student but due to a mental health crisis wherein campus security found a pocket knife in her possession (not on her person, mind you) she was banned from student housing. Her current housing situation fell through also so she is living out of her car at the moment. Are there any resources for her out there? I desperately want to get my friend under a roof, but she would ideally like to stay in the SB/Goleta/IV area to finish her degree before she tries to move somewhere more affordable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

2021.10.23 00:58 JoZeHgS [Python] Best Python NLP library to segment run-on and list-like sentences

Hi everyone!
I am completely new to NLP and new to Python so I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the number of choices at the moment.
I need a library that will allow me to take product titles such as these:

  1. 50/100pcs Kraft Paper Bag Gift Bags Packaging Biscuit Candy Food Cookie Bread Seen Snacks Baking Takeaway Bags
  2. Wholesale 2019 New Fashion 3D Mitsubishi Hat Cap Car logo MOTO GP Racing F1 Baseball Cap Hat Adjustable Casual Trucket Hat
and run them through some function that will spit out something like this with added commas:
  1. 50/100pcs Kraft Paper Bag, Gift Bags, Packaging, Biscuit, Candy, Food, Cookie, Bread, Seen Snacks, Baking, Takeaway Bags
  2. Wholesale 2019, New Fashion, 3D Mitsubishi Hat, Cap, Car logo, MOTO GP Racing, F1, Baseball Cap, Hat, Adjustable, Casual, Trucket Hat
So it's very close to segmenting a paragraph into sentences but not quite.
I need something that, ideally, already has a good dictionary and, mandatorily, provides support for both English and Portuguese. The more languages, the better.
What do you recommend? What specific functions in the recommended libraries should I look into? I have already checked out spacy and it's dictionary was pretty good. Is it the best option? What specific functions would I use for this? Would I need to create one of my own based on grammar?
Thanks a lot!

I work for Comcast as well on the CCS (Comcast cyber security) team and i noticed this post. This is also the 3rd time the customer has complained on our forum. It seems the network core in his neighborhood keeps going out. Could we reach out to the customer and see if we can get an engineer to the site? Because this is not the experience we want our customers to have.
My name BTW is Gilles Biagomba, if you want to look me up.

2021.10.23 00:58 sadaharupunch Beer Suggestion

Hello! Much appreciated if anyone can help me find some more beers that I may like! See below for info:
Where are you? Southern California
What's your budget? N/A
What beers do you like and why? My absolute favorite is Red Stripes.. I know there are better beers out there, but I personally haven't found one that I love that I can buy easily :( I honestly don't even know what I like about it exactly? I don't really like how carbonated some beers are, and I think I really like the smoothness of it (on top of the taste of course).
Aside from Red Stripes, the first beer I ever liked was at Karl Strauss called Columbia Street Amber. I'm copying from their menu about the description: a Munich malt Amber, deep bronze color, smooth body, and crisp toasted flavor.
Brouwerij West Brewery in LB - really like a drink called Mor Mor - it's a Belgian Quad/Strong Dark Ale (whatever that means).
Usually if I ask at a brewery if they have ambers, it's a high change I like them. Sometimes I absolutely hate it, but I'm not sure why.. I thought all ambers will be kind of similar for my naïve brain.
What flavors don't you like? Someone said I might like Fat Tire because I like ambers, but I did not like it at all.. Also I don't really care for Pilsners or Mexican Style Lagers. I can drink it, but I wouldn't willingly purchase it. Don't think I like Belgian Whites (Tried Blue Moon & Shock Top and wasn't a fan). I haven't had an IPA I like either. Also don't really like fruity beers or coffee tastes or what not.
Thanks in advance!

2021.10.23 00:58 antwan_benjamin How is "maximum benefit amount" for the year calculated?

I was maxed out on my weekly at $450. But my maximum benefit amount for the entire year would only allow me to earn about 17 weeks of my weekly amount.
Why do I have a claim for 52 weeks if I can only claim 17 of them based on my weekly benefit?
What are the calculations for maximum benefit amount for the year based on?
