It's me TEOR-MMMM, I am here to let you know that the thread Who really is Yang Xiao Long has been deleted. At this point, I have understood the folly of my actions, but I wish to also leave such matters under the bridge, but for me, I wanted it to be permanent and never go back to such thoughts, so I deleted it.
But still, I want to thank you again for your help in clarfiying things for me, my anxiety got the best of me, but now I'm better.
If you want to know why it was deleetd, this is my explanation to you about it so you won't be left in the dark about it.
Gen Lock looks like it has good combat, and it has a Tennant, so I'll probably watch it.
Intro that never really got me all that excited.
Starting off with atmospheric music that could be taken down a notch.. Why is Ruby alone?
Is that bad feeling a delayed hangover? At least they're not trying to go out on a winter night.
A journal? That's probably useful.
Looks like they pretty well all things considered.
Oh granny cracks can of laughter
That's a different bottle. Jumpy are we Ruby?
Sleepy Weiss is relatable.
Add a third bottle to the count. Ruby is getting tired of this. Good thing they didn't show him the cellar.
Awww, that's sweet. You should listen to that advise too.
SLEEP IS BAD. Also, what looks like an active tire de-icer that can be attached to motorcycles. Cool, but I'd advise chains too. Unless it's just a tow hitch.
Wrong thing to say Granny.
No, that's the writers trying to take their time. That said, they run your little universe, so I guess it counts. Tired = danger.
Weiss doesn't want to go home, but this place is making it worse. Stop that Yang. Blank stares creep me out. Thank you Jin.
Annnd she's awake again. Thank you Adrenaline.
Safety in numbers.
Stupid indeed Granny.
I hope you girls charged your scrolls. Jumpscare timer commenced.
Granny is about to find something imporant.
And their name and existence was spoiled. HELLO! Ruby, it's time to kill!
That is oh so cheap, but I can't deny that it's scary.
Listen to the old lady. Arewyou sure that the way to go?
How much tunnel is there!?
Thank you Blake, you got ruby to fire three, and that flash snapped everyone to attention.
THANK YOU GRANNY! FIRE 4!
Called it. Same house they started in.
Atta' girl Weiss! Burn the booze and the Grimm. Just run before the casks in the basement go up.
These Apathy are some serious nightmare fuel. They'll make a good addition, even if the audience is scared.
That... is appaling. Using Grimm to keep people calm to raise profits... Well I'm guessing that his, "I'll do it tomorrow," attitude meant they were already affecting him. So don't kidnap Grmm from their pack, go it.
That's the spirit Yang.
Do tell Granny, I'm looking forward to the next episode. Yes! Ruby inquired about her eyes again! While I prediced Maria's eyes, it was confirmed in a spoiler.
But it is not just their behavior and how little they fit with the setting that I can critique. I've had a little detail from one of your posts that I just couldn't get of my head while trying to focus on work and finals.
Now I have the time to thoroughly analyse why your group doesn't work. This isn't just my opinion, but logic at work.
"Nearly 85% of RDF Hunters are Chameloen Faunus, With a small group of humans being picked to be Hunters. Many human hunters will carry a cloaking device to mimic the natural camouflage abilities of their Faunus counterparts."
This alone is a major problem.
The amount of kidnapping and breeding tgat would be required to achieve these numbers is laughable in its implausibility. You say that the operatives are indoctrinated from a young age, and
Yes I wil watch Gen:lock. Actually skipped the intro today.
WTH are they wearing!? I nearly burst into laughter when I saw those idiots. They have already lost all credibility with me because of those outfits. Their doofy mannerisms don't help at all. These clowns are going to slow the episode way down on thier own with how many times I need to center myself. And with the "march" they are a lost cause. Not even a gatling laser could make me take these schmucks seriously. I just hope they don't get grating.
Can't say I've been there (yet) Granny, but airport security might as well be an invention of hell. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE'S BONES!? I refuse to take this trope lying down.
Ya sure it's just one stick Granny? What did you do Nora? Just add a new gate at the mainland end of the bridge, and don't see anyone who hasn't gotten an appointment or at least spoken with the casttle. Lockdown, it's a simple concept.
Going to let the video run silent until it catches back up. And now it won't even finish the gen:lock promo.
I'm back, and it seems to be running reasonably well.
So she's not just an uptight beuracrat who sweats every detail, she's an arrogant propoganda spouter. oh joy. I agree with granny, though there had to be more remote and isolated bases. And I already want her to shut her trap and get a comeuppance with minimal collateral damage.
So why didn't she just go on lockdown? It's not a wholey unreasonable move, and I could see her getting behind that with no concern of how it looks.
Preaching to the choir Yang.
Racist too? Well I'm hoping she gets discharged, assuming nothing happens to her.
Can we please go see a smuggler now? I knew this was a flawed idea a long time ago.
That was your only plan Qrow? This was an issue you needed to solve before you found out Oz was fighting in the face of seemingly inevitable defeat. You're right Blake, it wasn't for nothing.
Ah, how to win. THe question we've been working on for weeks.
He didn't have a choice Jaune. Stop getting hysterical. You don't need to give your haters any more ammo.
Is JNPR going to stay behind? That's going to hamper their chances.
Atta girl Ruby, you're thinking like a leader now. Being a leader is a heavy burden.
YES! Please discuss. Now you're interested. Could have at least tried to ask Oz when there wasn't so much distrust, and there was an abundance of time.
So they're calling it a wyvern now. Admittedly a giant wyvern, but we didn't need to reopen that debate. It does raise the question of whether there are documented smaller instances.
Granny was home-schooled in combat and being an SEW by her dad. Granny scored higher than anyone else on the day she applied for her liscence, which you at least could get if you proved your skills, even if you didn't attend an academy. Great gramps was wise enough to recognize the implications of the obscurity and rarity, and the need for secrecy.
Granny has heightened senses and awareness and possibly minor precognition. Silver Eyes can blind Grimm. Granny says that weapons and Semblances are more useful. RED LIKE ROSES. So the SEWs may indeed have power passed from the GoL. Can't properly practice in safety. This Will Be the Day.
Stop celebrating you porly dressed idiots, this is a major incident. Also, you're all going to be disciplined for not keeping an eye on the scopes, assuming you live.
Ammo detonation, good call. Still not sniper range. One missile left? Based on the amount of missiles in one pod, and the assumed 5 other pods, I find that hard to believe. Also, that missile catch last episdoe was BS. I would have thought Cordovin would be out of missiles though, or are there more that get loaded into the tubes?
She shoots, and misses. Well hopefully this will remind you that you need practice being a sharpshooter, and eventually a sniper.
Any flight training Oz? Not coming out yet I see.
Why did you call them apes?
THey build those Mantas sturdy don't they.
Blah blah blah, just die already. Tag team him into a grave!
Low blow A-hole.
And now the fun starts. Nice timing Blake. YES!!!!!! HE'S DEAD!
Stab damage + bleeding out + potential spinal damage X passing out underwater = oh so dead.
Nice going pipsqueak.
Not a bad design for Grimmzilla. That's a lot of killer kitties. Let's hope they don't remember that they could just bombard the city.
I'm already watching, and why isn't the second episode up yet? You dropped the first two at the same time. You can cut the adds
So they can have doors, it's just not obviious that they do, and they're not the most convenitently placed. Still a bad design.
I'm a guy, so I'm not going to attempt to analyze the thinking behind these new outfits.
Yeah, I totally believe that thing is rated for intercontinetal flights. Someon'es been practicing. Still doesn't have an Atlas IFF or authorization codes.
Referencing your kills, why do I feel like one of you is going to take a shot at the other? Apart from the spoilers I mean.
I like what they're going for, but this isn't dynamic enough for a battle.
Put a sock in it you dwarf of a hag. This is only happening because you used a purpose built mech meant for fighting a Grimm just like this one on a bunch of Hunstmen (in training) instead of AA batteries or another aircraft. Go to heck.
Try talking to a mirror.
This is on Adam Blake. and he's dead!
Well Oz is still hiding, so you're the de facto expert in terms of experience.
I like that there are multiple levels, but we know that's coing to fail. Ididn't even finish typing before fwoosh.
That's a good combo, but what are the others?
Still want to see her summon episode 8's Nevermore.
Yes focus one the...trauma. Ooops.
Thanks Jin, you actually answered my question. You're a macguffin, not a character. Thanks for clearing that up. A nice macguffin.
SUMMER! YOU GO RUBY! That's a song I want to hear more of.
I get why big boy broke out, but shouldn't all the fodder have been drowned at least? Never mind, we get to see the mecha drill stab. Happy Sentry.
That's a start Cordovin, but it is a good start.
Good choice Qrow. And you get to be complimented by your idol.
So how is Blake going to stay warm?
I see the normal knees mentality is here again. Can we see some more weapon nerd next Volume?
That's what I thought was likely.
Already? Corsses fingers for visible border defenses. DANG IT!
Why would you design it like that you stupid elitists? You're even higher in the cold air, which I'd assume means you have to adjust for air currents. Not to mention the Dust requirements of jsut keeping it aloft in ideal conditions. Before anyone brings up Amity, that was an arena, this is a Damocles city! Even ignoring all of that, what about expansion?
Whoops, forgot about the post credit scene. Of course she made a flying monkey. Also, we got to see her directily maipulate their forms. That's a lot. What was with that last bit of her summoning the goo?
The crucible was the work of not just the countless man hours and resources our Shepards and alliances directed towards them, but also the legacy of who knows how many cycles.
Except the Crucible's existence was never even implied in neither ME1 or ME2, nor in any of the dozens of side-material. It comes out of literally nowhere to save them against the Reapers because Bioware couldn't think of a better way to have the Milky Way defeat them. Hence why all the critics argued that it was a Deus Ex Machina, it's just slower than usual.

1: I had my heart set on military industrial complex that scarred the land... It's a lot harder to do that with a floating city than something on the ground.
2: The fuel requirements to get and keep a city airborne are crazy, especially since they also have to heat the city.
3: The altitude is going to make keeping this city warm even harder, and the wind has to be fought to keep the city level and in place.
1) You still got Mantle for that. And as for fortress cities, a floating city can still work like one, it's just in an unconventional manner.
2) They made a floating stadium that's been in the air for decades. The city of the Kingdom with the biggest Dust-working company on the planet doing the same would be expected to work the same way. Either 1 big dumb Wind/Gravity Dust crystal is enough to last for generations or they got a way to "keep it afloat" over time if they have to change/maintain the crystal. Granted, that's still easy to sabotage.
As for heat, it's doubtful that they heat it much, if at all. The people would've already adapted to the cold. Remember Weiss's V5 Trailer, everything was frozen solid right in the Schnee mannor. And yet Weiss, with her legs entirely exposed, didn't even shiver.
3) Well, actually that depends on how high up exactly Atlas is, there are layers that are warmer-than-others like the Stratosphere and Thermosphere. Granted, that's because of radiation, though it's fair to say Remnant has a better ozone shield since it isn't as industrialized as Earth, mainly because humanity doesn't cover almost the entire planet.
It's hard to measure the altitude though, since things in RWBY are either not at scale all the time or they outright change sizes between shots sometimes. Though I doubt they'll give us hard numbers for the altitude, most likely just "multiple Km into the air".
True, though it was handled better than a fair few superweapons and Dues Ex Machinas. I do like that it wasn't another Maxim 24 instance.
Amazing. You destroyed the entire formatting of the original post.
The Crucible was still handled pretty bad though. It's not an inmediate solution and no ending fixes everything, but it still comes out of nowhere and it just so happens to give you a way to defeat the Reapers in an instant. Note that no one actually knew what the Crucible could even do until all was said and done.
Personally I've bever been a big fan of the Vector, but Reese approves, so it can't be that bad. It's also heavily unique, so it's pretty memorable.
A good rifle for the times.
The WA2000 is actually a bit overated going off of what my go-to expert says. Some of the features are nice for the time, but some are rather antiquated today. It was designed specifically as a police sniper rifle, in particular for counter-terrorism operations. It is not meant for the military. Small production numbers, partly because of the design, partly because of the formidable price. It's decent if you've got time to wait and choose your shots. Honestly a bit overated. Very pretty though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_av1zBdnxXY&t=576s
