What would happen if the Chaos Gods could only be fed by positive emotions?

Disconnecting from games but internet is fine

The 41st millennium would become a much less interesting and fun place to be for a start, for example:,Khorne would go from the grimdark war-god of BLOOD, BLOOD, SKULLS, SKULLS, DEATH, WAR, MORE WAR, MORE BLOOD, MORE SKULLS, etc.

etc.

,(image from games workshop),To every paladinu2019s favorite, an annoyingly noblebright champion of decency and virtue, heu2019d be all Honour this, nobility that.

,(image from forgotten realm dnd),Slaanesh would go from the god/goddess of sex, drugs and rock u2018nu2019 roll,(image from games workshop),To just normal ordinary love and romance.

,(image from the internet),Nurgle would go from hilarious pox-ridden mountain of joy and kindness,(image from games workshop),To a god of just normal life and regrowth.

,(image from the internet),While Tzeentch that cosmic-level space-mollusk would go from warping your flesh into new and interesting forms,(image from games workshop),To being just all hopeful and sweet.

,(image from the internet),While itu2019s true all these things are fine and dandy in there own ways, they simply are not the dark Gothic brutally violent madness that is the 41st millennium, we all know and love.

,40k is meant to be a world were martial pride will inevitably be corrupted into blood-fulled savagery, while love corrodes into obsession, a persons stubbornness and desire to live becomes ever darker slowly falling into morbidity whilst the hope for a better tomorrow will slowly twist and change you, mind, body and soul into shapes unrecognizable even to your own mother as you chase it ever on towards eternal damnation.

,That kinda the whole point, it is the franchise that coined the term grimdark after all.

,This isnu2019t even mentioning that the ruinous powers are only one of the many disconnected and disparate reasons that galaxy is the cosmic-level fuster-cluck it is, but the shear lunacy and extremity of the setting is a significant part of the appeal.

,We fans all know and will happily admit the setting is a godawful place to live in, yet its that very fact that makes it so compelling, when you read about the live or death struggles of a mere guardsmen, willing him to succeed against the impossible odds, all the you while knowing that regardless of the result he will not be missed, it is quite unlike nearly any other setting out there.

,Hell if you asked a star trek fan if they would want to live in the world of the show, the answer is almost certainly yes.

If you asked the same of a star wars fan theyu2019d probably answer the same.

If however you where to ask a 40k fan that question the answer heu2019d almost immediately give is, oh hell no, followed by a long list of all the terrible ways heu2019d die if he said yes.

,Honestly i went off on a bit tangent there, so in summary if the dark gods were to be fueled by positive rather than negative emotions it would take a significant part of the flavor of the setting away.

,Although thinking about it further, if you retro-actively applied the original in-universe logic to this new set of emotions it would still turn out just as badly for all involved, this is because the denizens of the warp would still retain their inevitable drive for ever greater intensity of feeling and thus ever greater power for themselves, in so doing they would slowly and inescapably corrupt those once positive emotions into dark, twisted parodies of themselves in time, thus maintaining the grimdark in the long run just at a lower intensity than before.

,Hope that helps.

League voice keeps disconnecting

Ill be using the both the Justice League animated series core members as well as the movie members for this answer.

,u2022Batman,More often than not, he serves as he field team leader during combat/battle.

He and Superman are often considered to be the founders of the Justice League.

When not on the field, Batman actively serves as a kind of forward scout, gathering intel on various individuals from the top of the food chain to the bottom.

Even going as far as to follow bread crumbs of such individuals from other worlds or dimensions.

Heu2019s even known to utilize these skills as a u201cjust in caseu201d scenario for his own teammates in the unlikely scenario that they become rogue and turn against the people of the Earth.

His strong sense of justice (or rather justice at any cost besides murders) often puts him at odds with other members of the League.

But make no mistake, he will defend them all to his dying breath if needed.

Even if it meant going head to head with them.

,u2022Superman,Operating within the first and last lines of defense for the Earth, Superman is a heavy hitter thats every bit as immovable as he is nearly unstoppable.

Primarily, he acts as the moral compass for the League with his country boy raising serving as a staunch foundation for Big Boy Blue.

Often regarded as a brawler or muscle head, Superman has shown himself capable of some impressive intellectual feats.

Both his caring and good nature has helped many an individual (superpowered or not) in a wide range of situations.

Many view his impressive power set and power levels as something that can only be regarded as a threat or a sleeping bomb.

To this end, he works tirelessly to control himself as both the hero and the reporter.

Always willing to fight the good fight, Superman is nothing less than greatest of the greats.

,u2022Wonder Woman,Like Superman, she also serves as a heavy hitter for the Justice League.

But unlike others, she serves as the heart of the League, believing that all things deserve a chance for life so long as itu2019s not threatening all that she defends and loves.

She is a staunch believer and defender of justice with no reservations about doing whatever is needed to ensure it, including taking lives.

She has, on more than occasion proven that she is more than capable of standing either shoulder to shoulder or face to face against mortals, aliens and gods.

Whereas many people believe that she is hardly more than just a u201cfemale presenceu201d, make no mistake here.

Wonder Woman has proven that her gender has nothing to do with her capabilities as a team player or as a warrior.

,u2022Cyborg,Inarguably the most u201chumanu201d of the Justice League.

He operates as the tech guy and also as the heavy artillery.

Of all the members of the Justice League, Cyborg seems to have the most human heart of them all, not only caring deeply for everyone around him but also understanding that some actions need to be taken.

Hes often at odds with himself over his appearance and how hell never be fully human again.

However hes always been capable of putting his personal feelings aside for the sake of the team.

His unique physiology allows him to perform a large number of mechanical and computerized acts at once, all while maintaining a near robotic level of performance.

When he isnt hard at a task (which is almost never) he can always be found running data or improving himself.

But even with all this said, he always find time to enjoy a good game of football or just chilling with a few friends.

,u2022Martian Manhunter,Due to the fact that the Martian Manhunter has recently been at odds with the League on the comic, Iu2019ll be focusing on his time as a Justice League member from the animated series in which he made a profound impact on the team.

Acting at times as an enemy of the Justice League (by virtue of conflicting ideals) and as a member of the League Im the past, he could easily be regarded as the u201csoulu201d of the Justice League, choosing often times to preserve life and find a way to comprise in all situations.

The most alien of the League, Jonn is the odd man out, but thats never stopped him from wholeheartedly trying to blend in (via shape shifting abilities) with humanity and truthfully seeking to enjoy his time on Earth as he learns and understands more about our cultures and societies.

Jonn has proven himself to be a truly formidable opponent when angered and a very cunning one at that when it comes to defending his ideals or team members or taking the fight to the bad guys.

One of his most notable abilities is that he allows members of the League to use him as a kind of person to person chat with members in a pinch, using telepathic channels Jonn has set up to reach out to him to relay information.

,u2022Flash,The fastest man (more accurately, the fastest individual) alive.

Barry is the voice of reason among the League.

Hes often portrayed as being immature and quick to act, but this is because he can think faster than he can run.

Barry is more than willing to try an help absolutely everyone he can but he also realizes that even with his powers, hes only human.

In the field, hes a blur of action performing scouting, recon, rescue and retrieval ops.

Like his allies, hes also willing to fight the good fight.

But unlike his allies, he seems (at times) to be the one most personally affected by negative results and blaming himself.

He probably has the biggest heart of the Justice League members.

,u2022The Green Lantern(s),Taken at face value, its easy to see the Green Lanterns as just another police force.

And while as thats true to a point, they also serve as so much more than this.

The Green Lanterns are a highly specialized, skilled and experienced combative team that work incredibly well with and within any given group.

They serve as the very foundation for trust and teamwork within the Justice League and seeing as how they have a large number of members from an equally as large number of races and worlds, the Green Lantern Corp is exactly what the League needs to keep them open-minded about their acceptance of others.

Their diverse roster brings about many unique experiences and these experiences all serve to aid them with dealing with any threat.

And its in this that we find their greatest contribution to the League.

The Green Lantern Corp is truly the living embodiment of the very essence of the League.

They are a team of different people who come together to bring about real and good change.

To every life and sector that they touch upon.

,u2022Aquaman,Arthur is an impressive individual who has overcome a large deal of misfortune and personal loss and still stands steadfast and ready to defend his people and Earth.

As king of Atlantis, he is not only a fair and decisive king, but also a truly fierce opponent being strong, fast and durable enough to take the fight to even Superman.

Often times, his worst critic is himself and as such, he always tries to carry himself in a kingly manner.

He is however, often disconnected with humanity as he spends more time in Atlantis.

This can make him act very harshly and seemingly unfair.

But remember, he has a kingdom to run.

One that isnt composed of humans.

,And there ya go.

League keeps disconnecting and reconnecting

Thats a very big decision that everybody goes through? It is the uncertainty and unknown of the future that causes anxiety.

You will be on your u201cownu201d to control u201cyour timeu201d pleasures, relationships, activities sports travel and finances for 8hrs a day, for the next 20 yrs.

age 85?(Check your life expectancy calculator to be more accurate ?Also,our health is a factor relating cost, health care and our restriction in do the things we enjoy doing?,Thereu2019s a 50u201350 chance you will be satisfied with either decision? But, here is a suggestion, break down ages from 65 to 85 in 2yr increments .

Example 66u201368 68u201370 70-72 72u201374 74u201376 76u201378 78u201380 82u201384 84u201386 Now it is a little easier to look at the u201chealthu201d aspect of u201cretirementu201d vs health in the u201cwork placeu201d There is no one answer that fits all?I have a friend that retired and then started painting and doing odd jobs for seniors.

He loves it and works 6 and 7 days a week.

He has replaced his 40 yr + work routine with his own routine.

Something that gets him up in the morning.

He most certainly doesnu2019t need the money?(He is 80 +),Regardless of the decision good health is the key.

( I retired in 1990 worked at other jobs I liked, until 2000? From my experience I can sum up whats important, and that is FAH ( Friends - Activities - Health ) When we retire we u201cdisconnectu201d from the work force and reconnect to our retirement friends .

Iu2019ve been retired 29 yrs, this acronym u201cFAHu201d says it all.

POST IT ON YOUR MIRROR ?,PS I still play ball on a seniors league,pleasure skate 3 times a week with a adult- seniors group and downhill ski when the weather is good?

League of Legends connection issues

Even though Iu2019ve put in a lot of hours into Dota2 and less than 100 into LoL my opinion of why I play Dota2 is based on mostly the pay 2 win aspect.

Rune Mastery and buying heros automatically gives me and advantage over a person unable or unwilling to pour money into the game.

Sure Iu2019ve probably dumped $200 into Dota but NONE of it gave me an edge over another player.

I bought the pretty hats.

,I play dota because I like itu2019s competitive nature, and having every hero available as well as not having to pay for those small extra edges given by runes makes it a level playing field for everyone.

And no, I donu2019t care if playing 20k hours would eventually unlock everything in LoL for free.

Thatu2019s not fair to say, that is still nowhere near a level playing field.

,The only unfairness I have to deal with in Dota2 is internet connection issues on my team or on the opponents team that is affecting their performance.
