Good news, After a long 12 year wait, Age of Mythology fans will finally receive a new expansion! It’s called Tale of the Dragon, and set to be released on the 28th of January, 2016.
I myself, being Chinese, is extra excited that the new expansion focuses on the Chinese pantheon. Having loved Age of Mythology when it was first released, back when I was in primary school. I used to grind out on the demo of the game for hours, as I could not afford the full game. Once, I was able to buy the full game with the Titan expansion, the first thing I did when I got home, was always to load up the game. Now it’s going to be even better, being able to play as a pantheon of Gods that I can culturally relate to.
Sadly though, there’s been quite some controversy in regards to the artwork of the new game, and this where the bad news begins.
OCE is famous for being one of the most toxic League of Legends regions, but there are a subgroup of players that have ascended the levels of toxicity beyond what was thought humanely capable.
The question is, why are these players so toxic? What drives them to insult people or AFK from one death? What makes them feel so blameless? What coerces them to buy multiple accounts? What makes them type “sb” in the middle of teamfights? There could be a million questions but I’m going to answer only a few.
This is a guide for those who have been scarred.
Note: Please remember that these players only represent a minority of the people in Asian countries. Imagine the social outcasts and neckbeard basement dweller types, or just generally disconnected rich people.
If you have not yet read the manga or seen the anime, I suggest you do that before you continue down this page.
I am writing this to show how One Punch Man is an excellent allegory of society, that it is akin to works like Brave New World in representing the people and classes of the world. One, the author, has masterfully blended this allegory within his work of art through a combination of comical sarcasm and satire.
A bunch of old infographics by a Hong Kong artist that show Chinese Mainland people are less than human. If this shit was posted on any other group of human beings, it’d be labelled as ‘racist’ or ‘discriminatory’.
A few examples of the stupidity that Hong Kong people spout in order to colour themselves different from people who are genetically and culturally nearly the same, only separated by a visage of being civilized and English due to being colonised.
Baseless stereotypes that make people look inhuman right below.
Okay, this is going to be filled with anger and salt. There’s going to be lots of rushed grammar mistakes but I beg of you to read into this issue. This is a very short post that’s only here to tell you of the problem and there are many different parts of the conflict I implore you to research at your danger, as much of the history is extremely not safe for work.
Recently the Japanese and South Korean governments have agreed on a deal in resolving the the dispute of Japanese war crimes, predominantly comfort women. The paltry sum of $8.3 million isn’t even a fucking band aid, it’s an insult to the thousands of surviving comfort women that have endured decades of suffering and denial from the Japanese government.
