I watched a dark comedy recently in which the main character's soul looks a lot like a chickpea. I forget the name.

I didn't even realize you could HAVE a data set made up entirely of outliers.

I'm sad that Randall used "data" as a singular.

Randall didn't. The intentionally-incompetent character he created did.

Ragequitters will soon be publicly shamed in Street Fighter V

In its ongoing war to stop players who intentionally quit Street Fighter V matches early to avoid a loss, Capcom seems prepared to unleash a new weapon: public shaming.

Last night, a new test branch for the PC version of Street Fighter V went up on Steam briefly without password protection. Observant watchers at NeoGAF were able to trawl that update for new content, which includes some balance changes and new music settings. The beta branch also includes the above screenshot, which suggests a brand-new penalty for players that quit in-progress matches too often.

"Special icons will be displayed on the Fighter Profiles of players who frequently disconnect, as well as those who never do, making it easier for players with the same icon to battle against each other," the message reads. In other words, if you ragequit too much, expect people to start actively avoiding your prominently labeled profile during the matchmaking process.

Hasn't this been a problem for more than a year. I know it's a hard problem to solve, but a year to roll out a solution?

Let's hope this grammar nazi dies before he meets Yoda. Have a sh*t fit, he would.

It was "a long time ago". An archaic rule might actually be the modem style of the time.

I wonder how accurate the tally count is vs being based on gut. Maybe this is the best tally count we'll get though.
