  1. The original post did imply that they were scanning local pictures as well, if it's only iCloud, fair enough, their servers their terms.
  2. And here I was thinking that Apple, unlike Google, had at least some respect for their users privacy. Turns out I was wrong. Obviously child abuse is horrible and anyone guilty of it deserves to go to jail, but shouldn't that be the job of the police/authorities? A multi-trillion dollar corporation scanning your locally stored pictures for child abuse with an AI of unknown accuracy even if there is no evidence to support that you might have such images on your phone seems more like an excuse for collecting even more data they can sell to advertisers/governments.
  3. Still, that's a one time payment. Having a subscription for a safety feature is a whole other level of scummy.
  4. Perhaps, but this is kind of already happening in CS. Most people who take the game seriously (including pros) are almost exclusively playing on third party servers (mainly faceit), a service like this would just bring those players back on official servers rather than third party ones.
  5. I was talking about a subscription, some players have actually been asking for this. Not as a replacement of course, but as an additional paid ranked playlist.
  6. I don't really know what stats this paid option provides, but it's not like stats are that important in a game like CS. They are heavily influenced by your rank and playing for stats can often hinder your ability to play with your team. There are services that provide more interesting and detailed stats anyway (leetify, iirc). That wouldn't be such a horrible idea tbh, it would definitely somewhat mitigate the cheater problem.
  7. Yeah, depending on your region pricing can be weird like that. I've seen the same thing happen with the G102/203, which are also the same mouse. Other than the name, there is no difference, compare the specs if you want.
  8. They are the exact same mouse, I think the G304 is for asian markets and G305 is for western markets. Just get the cheapest one.
  9. TIL Valorant's skin system is one of the worst out there. The only way to get skins outside of the battle pass is to either buy an overpriced $70+ bundle, which is a limited time "deal" or, once that bundle is gone, to get a skin you like you have to wait for it to appear in one of 4 random slots which refresh once a day. The worst part is that even though it's only 4 slots per day, duplicates are still allowed so you can get the same skin for multiple days in a row. This might actually be worse than CS's loot boxes tbh, at least in that game you can buy the skin you want if you're willing to pay for it on the market.

      I wish games adapted TF2's system where you can get stuff randomly just by playing. Haven't played that game in many many years so not sure if that's still how it works but I always loved that.

      Yeah, it's goddamn ridiculous. At least there's no like $1000+ skins because there's no skin trading.

      True, but I'd rather have trading than whatever the fuck that system is. Artificial scarcity through RNG just ain't it.

  10. Don't see much of a point honestly, tactical shooters like valorant are either ruined by aim assist or pretty much unplayable with anything other than a mouse and keyboard. Could be cool for those who have bottom-tier PCs but still want to play valorant, I guess.
  11. There's no need to post about the same issue in 3 different subforums. -Other threads removed-
