    While people say BOTW2 really blows this theory out, I think it still stands because while Ganon has a demon form, he still had a human form to shed it from after all. What matters is that this is still the failed hero time line and he has a back up, his own original body, if all else fails. He'll still be alive and ready.

    Theory: The drowned were humans when they built the structure. They were then eaten by zombies and later turned into zombies them selves. The guardians were made by them before they were turned into monsters and I believe that that’s why they are still nice to them when drowned come by. When they drowned in water they became drowned and they still have the actions of a zombie but have different drops. Zombies raid villages is equal to Drowned attacking villagers. HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY SINPLE THEORY

    As someone who plays video games and shoots guns I'll say this: It's easier to point at a target in real life rather than coordinating multiple joysticks to do so, especially after doing it for years. It's harder to put rounds downrange accurately and effectively. Breathing control, staying relaxed, and quick target reaquisition after recoil aren't things simulated by your body while playing games. Moving the R Stick down or moving your mouse don't equate to actually getting control of the firearm and getting it back on target. Video games may help with spotting targets easier, but actually hitting the target takes hours of real live-fire practice and skill. And remember with international firearms death statistics: the United States has more guns than citizens. These countries don't have an equivalent to the Second Amendment and firearms aren't as easy to come by.

    I want to be an infantry Marine (should be leaving for MCRD San Diego in around a year for Boot Camp). I'm willing to commit violent acts to protect my country. I also hopped out of a car and ran across traffic to help a person who got in a huge car accident the other day. I can be violent and caring too. It's the poor direction of violence that people need to be worried about.

    CSgos isn't demonetizing based on violence it profanity, heyre demonetizing based on if it makes them money or not. This woman is not a fair woman, she's one if the greediest woman in the business, going as far as taking away our entertainment unfairly based on greed. I wish I could say this to this woman's face, but sadly, this channel would be demonetized and I can almost guarantee they would try to make me disappear. Not like it would do much, everybody is noticing this greediness in the system.

    Good interview. It's a shame that she spends most of the time dodging the question and simultaneously assuring you that 'they care'. You can only be so sympathetic knowing that she has to stay within the distance of a lawyer, at some point there has to be actual honesty involved and less 'brand management'. The fact is that CSgos refuses to take a stand against advertiser demands and instead of letting them go directly to the channels for deals, they insist on their learning algorithms to sort it out. Their new "harassment policy" is laughable. We all know that harassment isn't what is actually happening out there, it's people who can't deal with the attention they get, when they say something stupid and/or wrong. At the same time the same people love saying 'freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from consequence'. Apparently not for them? Whatever, youtube is a trash platform and it's only getting worse from here.

    So, here's a thought... what if these people were also the precursors that eventually became the Endermen in the prior theories. I mean, it makes a lot of sense if you think about it... The precursors wanted to escape something that was destroying their world, eventually reaching The End, right? Well... what about a catastrophic flood? That certainly would cause them to find a safe haven anywhere they could. So, while some people stayed behind, grasping their shells and waiting for hope that the sailors would return, the rest who decided to search for a different way decided to search underground. Their gods weren't helping, so maybe something in the Nether could... and eventually, they made it to The End... where they were saved... but at a massive cost.
