This could quite possibly be the end my friends

It has been a long and different ride, but, I just don’t enjoy playing MMOs anymore. It seems like games are either quest and quest and quest or work for hours acquiring shit and lose it in 3 seconds lol. I’ve started mentally dismissing games if their NPC names use a certain font. I just got Mass Effect 1 and 2 and I don’t even want to do the side quests because it is just fluff bullshit lol. I haven’t played the same game for over a week in like two months.

The point is, all signs point to the same thing, I am getting bored with games. I kind of really hate it because I don’t know wtf to do with myself anymore, but apparently there isn’t anything I can do about it.

This may not be farewell, but for now it is most definitely good morning. And if I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night.

My Love for Smite and e-Sports

Hello anyone who stumbles upon this and reads it! Long time no type.

I’ve been playing a lot of Smite and am almost level 30 which is the max level. It is also when you can start to play ranked games which I am looking forward to. When I am bored I’ll try to get a little MMO of some kind in, possibly a WoW starter account or one of my old school emu games, SWGEmu or Uthgard. Other than the occasional hour or so of CS here and there (and work and school), that is about all I’ve been doing.

If you would like to give Smite a try, here is my referral link. I have been trying to focus more on the Conquest game mode recently due to getting close to level 30. The only ranked mode used to be Conquest but they recently added 1v1 and 3v3 Jousting ranked modes as well. I’m still going to focus on Conquest though since most people consider it the “normal” or “real” game mode, since it is a MOBA. Another aspect I’ve been focusing on is being able to play multiple gods for multiple roles. Normally you would think to pick things you like or what you’re good at, which isn’t a bad idea really, but if you use what the pro players use you may find yourself winning more games.

For instance last night I finally pulled out some Bacchus. I had only played him one or two times prior after getting him randomly assigned to me in Assault games. But last night I pulled him out and won two games in a row with him. One of my problems recently is that I find myself playing He Bo way too much. The problem with that is that when I switch to play a tank or a physical carry I play way too aggressively and die a lot. Now, I die quite a bit on He Bo too, but, usually I am able to secure a kill before I die, or wound multiple people so that a teammate can finish them off. So, I’m trying to work on that.

I haven’t played LoL in probably 2-3 months but I still watch the NA LCS every week. If you don’t know, the NA LCS is the North American LoL pro season. Cloud 9 is the top team by far, only losing 2 games so far out of 19 (as of writing this, they have another match in about an hour, maybe more since CLG is playing first). The most surprising thing about this is that they are new to the LCS this season. What usually happens is that at the end of a season the bottom 2 teams are dropped into a promotion series where they compete against newer/amateur teams for a spot in the next season. Cloud 9 and Velocity both upset two former professional LCS teams and now Cloud 9 is leading the NA league by a mile whereas Velocity is in last place by a mile.

I have hope for Velocity especially with bringing in Ecco to replace Cris, I guess Cris didn’t communicate too well or something, but since that change they’ve started to win more. Last week they had all 5 players in the top 8 for KDA for that week. So, there is hope.

I really enjoy watching the professional games for Smite as well and I’ve really gotta hand it to Odee from Dignitas for sponsoring so many teams in all of the games that he does. He is really helping move e-Sports forward as a whole which is something I’m really interested in.

If you want to watch some of the NA LCS you can do so here.

That is about it bitches, ggs, and glhf lo3 etcetc.

Smite

I have been playing Smite a lot recently. It is a MOBA game but in third person. I am really enjoying it so far even though it is in beta. I even spent $30 on the god pack, which unlocks all champs/gods currently and all that are released in the future, which is really just a great deal. Here is a link to my stats page and below are two short clips that I probably should have combined into one of me playing probably my favorite god, He Bo.

This one is in conquest which is the traditional 3 lane moba map.

And this one is from arena which is, well, the arena.

Dignitas just sponsored a team which is great for the game and I can’t wait til more big sponsors join in. No more controlling your champ from a helicopter and click to move! Aim your skill shots and wasd! If you decide to give it a shot feel free to use the name bonedead as your referral, if it requires something other than that like an email, well, fuck it.

Peace out nerds!

Apparently I have a gaming blog

Whoops!

So I left you with a video of my Minecraft track my friend and I made. After we had completed that we worked on our main base a bit as it is planned to be a junction of sorts for other tracks we make. I then went back through our nether portal and walked off in a different direction almost dying to big ghost fuckers like a million times and then I made a new portal to begin work on a new base. I got a little floating castle thing which is reached via climbing up some trees which is pretty cool imo and then I began working on a track to our junction station base or whatever.

Yeah, then we stopped playing. That was about 2 months ago or so.

From there I think I hopped around a few games. I know I played a little WoW with my brother who likes to change his mind about what toon he is playing every couple days, which made playing WoW pretty unbearable for me. Though, grinding honor like I did was pretty unbearable anyway.

Then something special happened. I started playing League of Legends. Sour taste in your mouth? I used to make the same face when I found out someone I liked played a game like that. But after having played it for a little I’ve changed my opinion on it. Not DotA though, I played a bit of DotA 2 and that game can go fuck it’s dumb self, it doesn’t have shit on LoL. My favorite thing about LoL is probably Riot’s LCS. I love the casters and the high quality presentation/production value that goes into the streaming of the matches. I love that I have a “sport” that I actually care about because if I want I can literally open the game and play the same fucking thing that they are. Even the season downtime is awesome because you’ve got the players streaming and sometimes the shout casters (anchors or whatever they’re called) will stream and commentate their own game. It is just a big ol bunch of fun and I love it.

Playing the game isn’t nearly as fun for me as watching it, frankly because I kinda suck. But honestly it isn’t even that I suck, it is that I let little stupid fuckin 12 year old dickheads get under my skin lol. I know I need to be strong on more than one role which is why I consider myself somewhat sufficient on Taric (support), Cassiopeia (mid), and Poppy (top). The problem is that I also need to be strong on multiple champions for each role as well, and since I’ve already played 80 games or so the people I’ll be playing with won’t like me trying out new champs with them being all srs bsns while leveling in normal games.

Plus I usually wait to pick last just so we kind of have a proper team comp of top, jungle, mid, adc, support – though if I see 2 tops and 0 jungles I still go support (cus I ain’t never jungled before guise and it’s scurry). So most of the time I just play Taric a shit ton of times in a row. Occasionally I get left playing ADC which is ok I guess. My record as ADC is like 3-1 even though my free adc champs change every week and I don’t own one.

I also recently started playing CS:GO competitive mode. They added a hidden MMR system much like LoL has. After you win 10 competitive matches you get ranked. Well I won my first few games and then got matched against some double AK motherfuckers who stomped us. After all was said and done I got placed in 3 Gold Star whatnot rank which made me feel pretty bad about myself. I won 2 more games and got promoted to 4 Gold Star rank which is just barely the top half of all the ranks. Then I took a break and returned later while drowsy and lost two games, effectively getting demoted back to 3 Gold Stars. I’ve played against a lot of higher ranked people and killed them so I know eventually I will be placed where I feel I belong but unfortunately I can’t just sit there one weekend and grind it out due to needing to be fully aware and focused (read: not playing competitive games after 6 hours of smoking weed and playing competitive games – though those first 6 hours are probably okay).

Finally I’ve been dabbling in Marvel Heroes a bit. Got Hawkeye to like level 10 or some shit and then started playing Daredevil to now level 11 or so. It is alright, but, I’m already losing interest after a couple days of playing.

Anyways, besides taking 3 6 week classes this first summer semester and 2 more starting Tuesday, that is about it. Just working, schoolin, and a bit of gaming. Peace out beechays!

Track is done with video

Hey errybody, we finished the track last night and I recorded this video of the ride this morning. It isn’t anything fancy with crazy loops or some shit, just our first expansion in our world and I’m pretty proud of it.

A couple unexpected things happened due to Minecraft being Minecraft (and us not really “completing” the track yet). It is long as shit, I know.

Big Things

Can’t talk much but here is a bit of what I’ve been working on. Playing Minecraft with my buddy and we want to just build shit. So we went through the Nether portal at our house (right side) and dug through the Nether world pretty far and made a new portal outside of a Fortress which led us to our second house (aka Portress Outpost). Once we had our second house up we began the long process of building a bridge from one house to the other. Yesterday we completed the bridge and got mine cart track across almost half of it (with powered tracks in there for speed boosts). We kind of plan on just making a big fuckin railway system all over the bitch. I intend to record a video once the track is completed just to show you how long it still takes to cross the whole thing even with powered rails.
workinprogress

If you look you can see a 2 block wide gray line going across the whole picture, and that would be our bridge.

Derpadoo

I have no idea what I try to get out of playing games. But Bonedead, they are just games, you say to yourself. Games are there to have fun, you tell me.

Oh you mean they’re not there to make you feel good about yourself because you’re the number one best motherfucker in the whole world (or you’ve wanted to be and never have been lol)?

I don’t know wtf I want, man. Work has been good, got promoted, finally doing real work and feel like I’m contributing to the company while also keeping the internal machine running (company books bro). It feels good. My social life is completely non existent though. I used to go to a bar on Tuesday’s and use some buy one get one on Tuesday’s only text message coupon, but I just can’t get that in to drinking like I used to.

Anyways, I bought Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim this month and have played the crap out of them all. The series is quite enjoyable (though I couldn’t force myself to attempt to stomach the older 2 games). I did get lonely though, even though I play MMOs solo most of the time, I do still enjoy rare encounters when people try to talk to me or something and I ignore them completely most of the time. So, I tried to think of a game I haven’t played in a while that in my memory reminds me most of The Elder Scrolls. Now that may sound like a reasonable thought process, but here is the flaw. Thinking of a game I haven’t played in a while. So from the get go, I don’t REALLY remember anything about it, I am basing my judgement off of a vague feeling I have about a game that I played years ago. The game that I chose is AoC. Yep, you read that right, Age of Conan.

AoC has changed a bit since I last played. It is now free to play with a cash shop. I had 7/8 character slots filled and since I am a free player now, I can only unlock two of them. So, I obviously used the one empty slot to make a new character. There are 3 whole servers for AoC now. One is PvE, PvP, and like Blood and Guts Glory to the Emporer PvP or some equally radical title like that. I chose the crazy one not knowing wtf I was getting into (I still don’t even know the difference).

It is not really like The Elder Scrolls at all, save the questing in Tortage where the NPCs speak. Can’t pick up every little thing everywhere, even though there are a literal fuck ton of boxes that look like chests. It seems like half the mobs don’t even drop loot, though of course every one of them have a sword and shield. But these are things I can get passed, because I realized that there isn’t one fucking MMO that is like that.

I have only played two days or so (and rather lightly, I add) but am honestly not having a terrible time. I barely remember the story so that is good. I have mainly been sticking with the main quest (much like I do in TES) which means I don’t get quite enough exp all the time and need to go outside and kill some shit every now and again.

I have heard plenty of complaining in the Neil Patrick Harris channel (NPH, New Player Help) about people ganking and camping newbs. I imagine this is going on in White Sands as that is where I vaguely remember first encountering PvP way back when. This led me to avoid that area during daytime. However yesterday I did venture there and saw one guy half my level.

I do believe there are level restrictions on who you can attack so it shouldn’t be that bad. Anyways, I shall resume playing it some today. I’m hoping that I will run into one of these griefer guys and that he won’t be way bigger than me.

Oh, I am playing a Demonologist because it was the lowest level I had previously.

That’s it bitches, gtfo!
