Bubble Tanks Tower Defense - the impossible badge

this imp badge shouldn’t exist and has the worst design of all imp badges. not only is this perfect run torture again, there are over 40 levels to beat with some lasting 30+ minutes for just one attempt. this isn't the bad part. the bad part is where you effectively have to abuse game mechanics "juggling", sometimes having to maintain this for several minutes (choke potential, also boring) and if that wasn't enough the game throws ghosts at you, which rarely get targeted properly by the towers. the ghosts can reach the exit in under two seconds, making this super rng based. if that wasn't enough, there are splitters glitching through towers (forcing you to change your strat in cases) and the very rare case of a random non-ghost bubble deciding to completely ignore all towers and walls, either ending your run instantly or softlocking the run (same thing). all these factors make this imp badge by far the worst. it is fake difficulty and never should have got a 4.0 star rating to begin with.

    I'm sorry for your situation, it sounds very shitty.

    The second half of this I really empathize with; I feel like I have become significantly less positive towards people compared to how I used to be, and that makes me feel (even) worse about myself. I want to be a really kind person and feel good about my interactions with people... But at this point it sometimes feels like social interaction is actually a negative experience for me because of how many bad feelings I get from various sensitivities. But if I didn't interact with people at all I might feel even worse.

    I think sometimes simply not caring can be a blessing... It seems to me like almost all my negative emotions in this category are caused by caring so damn much about what people say, how I come across to people and what role I have in their minds.

    Wow, here I am using this thread to talk about myself. Nice one, me!

    I, um... hope it gets better for you? I don't know what else to say. The road to life improvement and self-improvement is a long one but it is possible to travel on... I think... Okay I'm pretty bad with this stuff, sorry. :/

    let's talk about elona shooter next and how it's the hardest imp badge on kong (harder than bttd but not as badly designed). getting the bonuses in preparation is already painful enough. for the big run, you are hugely dependent on getting good rng to get a good gun and good mods. if you don’t get that perfect gun, your run may be soul-crushingly destroyed past day 80, and getting to day 80 takes over four hours. i found this challenge to be horribly hard even after discovering a cheese strat with the gun (hold down space) so if this cheese didn't exist, i can't bear to imaging what this imp would have been like, it's already bad enough. also, if your flash/browser/computer crashes/accidentally closes for whatever reason during a day, your run is automatically over (unlike monsters den). this is by far the most unforgiving imp badge.

    Isolation isn't... fun, to say the least. So far all summer I haven't been able to go to any friend's house or meet them a single time; I only have 1 thing where I stay the night in July. One of the things that sucks is how my depression ruins social interactions for me, so that I might be lonely and looking forward to being with friends but when the time comes I feel like I'm not important and I just feel miserable. It's just something that I deal with, and I think this summer has so far been a little bit easier than last year. I still have depression spells and feel miserable, but the loneliness is more manageable. One thing is that I guess last year at this time I was dating, so I had to go a whole summer without seeing that person, which hurt, along with them kind of not talking to me and then breaking it off in July. Throughout that year and as a result of the experience I've become a bit more apathetic to people, realizing more how temporary most friendships are and trying not to let myself get hurt if no one talks to me / people stop caring.
    I don't really know how to say about your situation except that it becomes easier to deal with in time, at the least. Yeah, that "solution" kind of sucks, and there's a lot of hurting you have to go through to get there,
    I also get the "not contributing" thing. I was really excited about my WD:ME, but it's so hard to have motivation to do anything with depression, so it felt like I was just giving nothing back to dashnet. A lot of topics stopped interesting me, I didn't care about stuff I used to. And I'm not sure if I can ever fix my computer for my files.
