By all rights we should be dead; a single vacuum tube in free fall happened to hold a charge and world war III didn’t start. But the many worlds interpretation insists that it did, in fact, discharge; and that the bomb did go off. It’s precisely the fact that we can’t perceive alternate realities that forces us to perceive this one, the one in which that bomb didn’t explode. We only perceive this branch of reality because the alternative is zero perception. In other words, this wasn’t lucky for all the billions of people who died in a nuclear exchange when that bomb went off in our sister universe. We just consider it lucky from our standpoint, which is a standpoint we only have by virtue of remaining alive in this branch of reality. Banks arelikely to be sounding out potential “anchor” or cornerstoneinvestors who could take a large chunk of shares. And if you don’t get the sarcasm, it’s there.

Discuss Updated We spoke at length about the improved matchmaker in the Common Test announcement. How It Works The improved matchmaker builds two teams with several key criteria in mind. Its goal is to get you in a battle quick and make sure the two teams it assembles are: Comparable in their aggregate combat parameters Diverse in vehicle types and versatile enough to provide an engaging gaming experience Balanced in a way that gives both sides a chance at victory To do so the system analyzes vehicles in the queue and chooses one out of a set of templates; server-side algorithms with team makeups that define the tier spread and vehicle distribution at the top, middle and bottom of the list.
The variant you land depends on the queue composition, but whichever you get, there will be no battles where vehicles in the middle are outnumbered by those at the top. No fewer vehicles in the middle than at the top No fewer vehicles at the bottom than in the middle This way, the matchmaker ensures that regardless of your position on the list, there are always enough players in the same position on your team to have a real chance in battle.
In this case, you can get a two-level or single-level battle. However, if it sees that this will have you waiting for quite a while, it will match you into a battle with a suitable tier split.

Synopsis[ edit ] Characters and setting[ edit ] Halo’s storyline is linear; there is a single ending in contrast to other first person shooters such as Deus Ex that could have several different endings. The storyline is presented to the player through an instruction manual, scripted events and conversations during the game, and a number of cut-scenes rendered using the game’s graphics engine.
This method of storyline delivery is common among modern video games. The Xbox version of Halo: Combat Evolved allows one player to play the campaign alone, as well as allowing two players to play through the campaign in split screen.
10 Comments on World of Tanks – Matchmaker Tank Distribution – Update Hello everyone, Sorell, Wargaming Developer, has posted a new updated table with .
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.
Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?
Matchmaking in 9.19.1 and the Road Ahead
Matchmaking Matchmaking The composition of tanks in each team is a task of matchmaker. It works in following manner. It takes one tank from the queue and looks at his tier. For example it is IS – russian heavy with tier 7.
The matchmaker starts by trying to create a ±2 battle using the 3/5/7 template (three vehicles at the top, five in the middle, and seven at the bottom) or one of its variants (e.g., 3/4/8, 3/3/9, etc.).
Crackdowns against the Occupy Wall Street encampments across the country reached the epicenter of the movement on Tuesday, when police rousted protesters from a. The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy Naomi Wolf US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week.
An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women — targeted seemingly for their gender — screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park. But just when Americans thought we had the picture — was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities.
The National Union of Journalists issued a Freedom of Information Act request to investigate possible federal involvement with law enforcement practices that appeared to target journalists. The New York Times reported that New York cops have arrested, punched, whacked, shoved to the ground and tossed a barrier at reporters and photographers covering protests. Reporters were asked by NYPD to raise their hands to prove they had credentials: Other reporters wearing press passes were arrested and roughed up by cops, after being — falsely — informed by police that It is illegal to take pictures on the sidewalk.
In New York, a state supreme court justice and a New York City council member were beaten up; in Berkeley, California, one of our greatest national poets, Robert Hass, was beaten with batons. The picture darkened still further when Wonkette and Washingtonsblog. To Europeans, the enormity of this breach may not be obvious at first. Our system of government prohibits the creation of a federalised police force, and forbids federal or militarised involvement in municipal peacekeeping.
I noticed that rightwing pundits and politicians on the TV shows on which I was appearing were all on-message against OWS.
Whether vehicles are stock or fully researched, how they are equipped, nor crew skill is taken into account by the match-maker. Vehicle Tier Vehicle tier is not taken into consideration when balancing teams. This is a common misconception among players.
Nov 09, · General discussion on World of Tanks game-play, The main section and backbone of the forums.
Since we rolled out fundamental system improvements, we continued to work on it using a combination of your feedback and extensive data gathering. Here, we’ll discuss the effects of the revised matchmaker, with a look at future tweaks in 9. Reading the hundreds of pages of discussion and feedback on the improved matchmaker convinced us that the template-based algorithm does its job of balancing the speed of matching versus the quality of matches.
Finally, many of you reported that gameplay on a number of maps has changed, bringing an extra thrill to the process and with it—a chance to rediscover familiar locations, devising new tactics. Now think how it feels in the game as it stands today. Having a few top-tiers on the other camp no longer makes you question the point of battling. Preventing arty to join and form Platoons was a temporary restriction designed to help us measure the impact of the stun effect and other SPG changes introduced in 9.
Probably the biggest criticism we heard was on this decision, which together with the metadata we collected made us reconsider. The matchmaker now balances team makeups by vehicles types and Platoons within a battle tier: Can you recall when a team with a scout at Tier X would be matched against one with a scout at Tier VIII or something just as frustrating? These end for good with 9. Starting with its release, the matchmaker will balance team makeups by vehicle types and Platoons within a battle tier.
When the matchmaker forms two sides, it puts together a similar number of TDs, LTs, and arty for each battle tier. If your team has a TD at the top, a couple of scouts in the middle, and an SPG at the bottom, the matchmaker attempts to mirror this make-up on the enemy team.
The World of Tanks update is fast approaching and with it comes a few new HD model reworks and also several new French tanks. There is also a new map Overlord that looks interesting, but sadly the test server did not want to give it to me!
