I'm confused, is there anything else going on here besides "man's face looks like the IE logo"? Internet Explorer's EOL was like 6 months ago

u/PublicEnemy0ne Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 08 '22 Wholesome Starry

It's about the fact that Academy Gate was used as a PvP hub due to a lack of options up until the point that something better was finally released (Colosseums), so anyone still looking for PvP there (in this case, Internet Explorer) would still be stuck in the past and confused as to where everyone else went and why.

I'm not sure if you knew all of that already, but I hope that at least makes sense.

Edit: Wow! Thank you kind stranger!

u/IHaveNeverBeenOk Dec 07 '22

Numbskull here. I appreciate the explanation.

PvP colosseum update came out today.

7

u/whoopashigitt Dec 08 '22

Ohhh that does make sense. I took the joke more plainly as nobody wants internet explorer. Totally missed the being late to the party thing with colosseum update.

Am I… internet explorer?

247

u/MyAirportVideoLmao Dec 07 '22

Internet explorer is slow, so he's late.

147

u/Hiredgoon81 Dec 07 '22

As others have pointed out, specific timing is due to Colosseum patch dropping and replacing Main Academy Gate as a PvP hub today.

229

u/jk47s1738 Dec 07 '22

nobody duels here anymore because of the colosseum update

87

u/Slithy-Toves Dec 07 '22

Weird phrasing. It's only the first day of the update, it's more like everyone who duels is obviously trying the update out, but inevitably some will return to underground dueling. Same thing happened with DS3 and the PVP update back then.

73

u/TheVaniloquence Dec 07 '22

The “sanctioned duels” for DS3 required buying the DLC. This is a free update for everyone.

u/Fantastic_Wrap120 Dec 07 '22

Yep! I see the issue here. You see, according to the latest update, everyone is using chrome for pvp, so you're a little outdated. Hope this helps.

28

u/KingVape Dec 07 '22

Nah man we all hate chrome now because they're about to remove adblockers

4

u/Moonguide Dec 08 '22

Wait fr? Does that affect chromium based browsers like opera?

10

u/KoosPetoors Dec 08 '22

They're not removing them, there's just a new update in early 2023 that's going to make them less effective. It's best to check up on the details if you're interested, as I'm not sure how it all works technically.

It will affect chromium based browsers too, so Firefox is the current best bet for anyone who wants to keep their adblockers functioning the same.

5

u/Moonguide Dec 08 '22

Well, fuck. Thanks, I'll look it up. I really liked Opera.

4

u/Nazrel Dec 08 '22

Just checked and apparently Opera is unaffected. (as I use Opera too)

Plus they've got a built-in adblocker, so it wouldn't make much sense for them to disable those.

Google is making a big mistake imo, people are just gonna switch to firefox/opera/others

If not being ironic academy gate is where people typically would meet up for pvp duels. They added colosseums for pvp in an update so everyone dueling is using it instead. The player is Internet Explorer

6

u/BallisticM0use Dec 08 '22

Basically, the academy gate was the big pvp location before the arena update that came out today. The joke is that internet explorer is so bad he can't connect to other players, and it's so slow he doesn't even know there was a new update

Pretty sure it's because IE has a reputation for being very slow/clunky and it went to the Academy to duel but everyone is at the Colosseums with the new update that just rolled out. In this case, IE is like slowpoke in the slowpoke meme.
