    Well I'm in the process of proposing revisions to lightning standards, which might affect that revision once site-wide changes are allowed.
    Hey Man, I saw that on a Ben 10 revision that you were planning on doing a Dishonored CRT soon enough.

    Well, Dishonored is one of my favorite series ever, and I just recently replayed the first two games (and the first games DLCs) and just finished my few couple of playthroughs of DOTO.

    So I was wondering if you could give me a hint on what that CRT is about because I after finished DOTO and was relooking over our profiles on the series, there are things about them I believe to be wrong (High 3-A Void, Outsider, and Twin-Bladed Knife mainly) and I was eventually planning a making my own CRT about it.

    So yeah, just interested in what you are planning, would it be possible for me to get a glimpse at your mind with it?

    Oh shit, nice. I actually have a group chat that I'm mostly just using to host ideas I have for the revision. I'll invite you to that.

    I do plan on removing High 3-A Outsider/Void in the revision but it hasn't been formally added yet. I discussed it with Weekly offsite and he said my proposal was fine (Death of the Outsider straight-up refers to the "edges" and "center" of the Void, mainly). I also have drafts for revised profiles on my Sandbox that are largely WIPs.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, after playing DOTO, I found some evidence for that I can see that would insinuate the Void being rated a different tier, based on things in the lore, not just a statement from "Letter from Deliliah" - proposing possible upgrades actually, but whatever the case, I think High 3-A to be wrong after playing the game.

    Oh cool, could I see the revisions too? I would like to help, if I can, even in small ways.
    Hello Dargoo,
    There is a claim regarding this statement, and I was invited to ask a calc member for confirmation:
    A sea-demon feared for hailing storms and casting ships into the abyss.
    It was claimed (even after referencing the generic storm calculation) that this statement is useless for calc'ing or assigning a tier to the sea-demon (even as Environmental Destruction), because we don't see the storm while it was being created, and we don't have a direct scale for it or how fast the sea-demon created the storm. Is this true?
    Dargoo_Faust

    I was about to say it should be fine for ED, however if we don't know how long it took them to produce the storm there's not really a "minimum" for a storm created within any given timeframe that we have. Most/all of the storms calc'd on the generic calc page are assumed to be created in a short timeframe, for example.

    That said I've never heard of "not seeing the storm" as being an issue - if you know the timeframe and a rough idea of the size of the storm in question it should be calcable. Unless this is like, the only description and we have nothing to go off of for how big it was.

    The contention is the storm at its creation; the counter-argument being that the sea-demon might have taken a long time to create it. We do see the storm itself, it extends over the horizon, and the clouds are moving at high speed (though I am not sure the speed can be determined in 2.5D).
    Dargoo_Faust
    Dargoo_Faust
    I see.

    Then yeah, it can't really be rated w/out knowing it's a reasonably short timeframe.
    Hello! Please don’t mind me, I hope I’m not bothering you. I just had an innocent question.
    You were listed on the Knowledgeable Members of the Plague Inc. verse. Do you know whether the Necroa Virus’ 9-B Key is a single Zombie, or Multiple? I have to ask, since I’m running a Tournament and the Zombies are one of the participants.
    Dargoo_Faust
    Dargoo_Faust
    It's just one zombie.

    Thank you very much, Dargoo. Have a great day!
    Hello,

    Quick question. I'm about to type out a CRT and I'm being prompted to write either an article or discussion. This is the first time I am creating a thread on the new forums and I don't really know the difference.
    Hey Dargoo, Zamasu told me to contact you when it comes to Ben 10 calcs.
    Could you calc Evil Way Big going from outside the galaxy to earth in about a day as a high-end (Albedo stated he spent a year and a day in a cosmic storm while incubating To'kustar DNA, implying the events of the video game took place during 1 day) and several days as a low-end? (And yes the video game is accepted as canon, currently Way Big scales to a feat in the video game)

    There is also Chromastone flying from earth to Petropia in "Ben 10: Alien Force Season 3 Episode 16 The Secret of Chromastone", I'd appreciate if you could also calc this. He started flying at 05:40 and arrived at 10:45. At 14:35 Kevin stated the crystal and thus Petropia are halfway across the galaxy. Then at 14:44 Vilgax starts flying towards Petropia and arrives at 15:54. I have reason to believe everything happens in real-time since everything in the episode takes place right before and during the elignment of 3 stars which shouldn't last very long. Thanks in advance and sorry that I can't provide the link for the second and third feat because of illegal streaming site rules.

    For the start of the first feat.

    This won't be very high on my priorities right now (I'm still working on my response to the Worm CRT and creating the Dishonored CRT), however I'll try and get to this as soon as I can. Apologies if I can't get it done right away.

    There's also other calc requests I need to hit too, on top of this.

    MtG revisions stuff yay

    (I'm Tod Nye the Spookstuck guy, for reference)


    ^I did something. Thoughts?

    You seem to be mixing up Dominia and Dominaria, which describe two different things. The former is an outdated name for the MtG multiverse as a whole, the latter is a single plane inside of it.

    (EDIT) : A lot of the 2-A stuff doesn't necessarily apply to pre-mending walkers, too, since the way the MtG multiverse is structed stuff done to the Nexus of the Multiverse carries over to every other plane. Basically they messed with the fabric of a single plane (the tier of this depends on how large Dominaria itself is) and a domino effect kicked off which caused that effect to hit every other plane. So while the Mending is technically a 2-A event, it's a 2-A event facilitated by sub-2-A feats.

    On a side note, Jace splitting the Hamilar Sea needs a recalc. I do think with certain spells, they can kinda be offensive in a certain style, but they shouldn't scale Jace physically. Plus, IIRC, the OG calc had problems.

    I'm planning on revising the Neowalkers sooner or later in terms of AP
    Planned CRT Priority List

    This is mostly to help me collect my thoughts on what needs to be tackled and in what order once the forum move happens. Feel free to comment with questions and concerns, though. Will add more to here as stuff springs to mind.

    Overall Site Revisions
    • Heat Revisions. Will be continued through this thread. Primary objective is to dispel notions that, for the umpteenth time, I'm not trying to disqualify heat feats entirely, and that the Yay/Nay vote DDM has been keeping a count of isn't about the implementation of the revision itself but of an exception in an already approved revision. Will likely need to contact new staff and formulate a joint summary of the thread with DDM.
    • Vaporization Calculation Standards. Basically a proposal to have more stringent standards on what we accept as total vaporization of craters and holes. Steam/smoke coming off of a crater would no longer be, by itself, evidence of vaporization. Statements would be preferred in the future.
    • Calculations revision that simply adds that calcs require the relevant feat to be posted in the calc to be accepted. This wouldn't be retroactive.
    • References Sitewide Project - a purely optional community push to use the underused references format. Will try to figure out a good way to use references to replace hyperlinks on profiles with some formatting finesse.
    Specific Verse Revisions
    • The Cosmere
      • Introductory changes for a large verse-wide update with the release of The Rhythm of War. The larger changes will be focused on Shards and cosmology, while the changes I have planned for right after the Forum move deal with individual characters rather than the verse as a whole.
        • Upgrade Nightblood to 7-B or 8-B off of Southern Scadrian bomb scaling or Thunderclast vaporization.
        • Change Existence Erasure to Mind/Soul/Magic absorption.
        • Everyone sufficiently Invested in the Cosmere can see the soul, even if it's not attached to the body, due to Szeth.
        • Downgrade Wax, Wayne, Marasi, Miles' physicals to 10-A.
        • Remove shardblade wound healing from Szeth / downgrade his regen due to it being inferior to stormlight users with a Nahel Bond.
        • Calc ballroom feat + Wayne explosion feat for Feurochemic Steel speed.
        • References
    • Dishonored
      • Downgrade Corvo, Daud, Emily, Billeh to 9-B, 9-A with some weapons.
      • Calc feats to form the new baseline for the verse.
      • Incorporate feats and abilities from the comics and books with assistance from Weekly.
      • Outsider stuff from the upcoming RPG will be handled in a separate revision.
      • Change Bone Charms, Potions, Grenades, Mines, and the Rewire tool to optional equipment. Crossbow, Shortsword, Pistol, and The Heart are standard equipment.
      • References
    • Magic: the Gathering
      • Remove Tier 6 from all/most Neowalkers. Tiers will be changed on an individual basis, depending on the planeswalker themselves.
      • Revise Bolas scaling to the Theros Gods in Nyx. Also update the Theros Gods with keys based on what they can do in Nyx vs. what they can do to Theros from Nyx.
      • Revise 2-A rating to likely Low 2-C.
      • Address the viability of The Planeswalker's profile.
      • Address Test of Metal not being solid canon (affects Bolas and Teferi's causality hax)
      • References
    • UnOrdinary
      • Remove John's weakness to needing to see a power to copy it, due to Aura-Sensing. He can also sense auras when abilities are activated within his range, which seems to be within a few meters of him.
      • Isen gets enhanced senses (sight and hearing).
      • Update Blyke's profile with what he's been doing recently in the comic.
      • Change the verse name to just "UnOrdinary". There's no other pages with the same name on the wiki so there's no need for the parenthesis.
      • References
    • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
      • Tarkus' feat is knocked down to 9-A. Jolyne's feat demonstrates the upper limits of her strength and durability, also putting her between 9-A and 8-C. As such, only people who scale via multipliers (Dio) or who upscale from Jolyne's upper limit (Pucci) retain 8-C. This represents the physical peak of JoJo's stands with a few exceptions.
      • Recalc the recalc of Tarkus' feat with full volume, violent fragmentation, and bedrock material.
      • Recalc of Avdol's heat feat using melting of stone pieces via statement.
      • Update pages with supporting feats for the specific ratings through references.
      • Wait on further discussion with Chariot.
      • References
    • SCP Foundation
      • wait for Ovens to do it then swoop in and take all the credit
    • RWBY
      • Implement basically everything from Part 7. Discussion on scaling Penny's sword beams to Volume 7 characters based on feats, as well as a recalculation of that old 8-B calc.
      • Discussion on the Fairy Tales of Remnant book.
      • References
    Fun
    • New Bracket, with written battles. Going to pull all the stops on this one, and it'll be done to celebrate the forum move and the completion of built-up CRTs.
