August Fourteenth, Two Thousand and Eight!

Today (I say today but it was really yesterday) I upheld my WoW vow yet again by only playing CS. I don’t know why I just didn’t really feel like getting on WoW. I felt like I didn’t have enough time I guess so I am saving it for the weekend and tomorrow after work (tomorrow = today lol).

I looked at my scoutzknivez demo and tried to fraps a good portion of it but for some fuckin reason I have a 3.9 gb fraps video that doesn’t work because the shit fuckin died or something in the middle of recording. Then I saw that I already had some frapses of the demo and thought, way to go you fuckin retard.

So I took a 700mb avi, windows media encoded it into a wmv that is around 30 mb, and then played CS instead of uploading it to YouTube because it took fuckin 30 minutes to encode it.

I question the point now, after giving it more thought. Regular servers don’t have the air acceleration set to what scoutzknivez uses, so even though actually playing on a scoutzknivez server can improve your air strafing and your ability to jump precisely, I don’t think it really helps that much. I looked on youtube for some and there are guides for it, however, most of these guides are on servers where they only play kz maps which is just a race to a certain point via crazy jumping off the side of cliffs and over lava and shit. I am pretty sure those servers use some altered settings because the dudes are jumping and speeding up waaay too many times. In regular servers it isn’t possible to jump that many times and have your distance between jumps remain that large.

So I don’t even know if I’m going to upload it. Maybe I can just record a demo of me playing on a regular server and fraps the parts where I use it to my advantage. Meh. Maybe I’ll just drop it and focus on WoW lol. Like a good little boy.

I have a plan for WoW though. I want to run WC a few times until I have 2 Stinging Viper maces. Just look at it and you’ll see why I want 2. You can even view it as a 3d model and put it on a tauren male and then just imagine another one in his other hand, I think it’d be pretty bad ass. Not to mention the DPS lol. I’ll be the crazy snake wielding cow.

There is also a bunch of blue mail armor in there I may try and get, just so I don’t have to for a while. I don’t want to run every instance 20 times just to get all the loot I could use from it. Plus, I already got the Savage Trodders boots my first run through. So I only need to get the Breastplate and the belt that is better than the other belt.

I think that would be pretty bad ass. Maybe I can find some generous high level who will run me through it a few times, if not I guess I’ll have to risk grouping again! Lol. Ugh, I know, but it is a hard phobia to overcome. Plus it just takes so long when you’re a group of level appropriate players.

Just got on real quick here at work (shhh!) to see if my guild had a website or was planning to, lol, guess not! One of the higher ranks in the guild was on and I asked him then said to tell the leader that we should look in to it and he told me the leader was on his main. So I /t the main and he fuckin ignores me even though I offer to help be it money or actually getting the shit up and THEN he goes afk. 😦

Feels good to be loved. I hope this guild works out y’know, I don’t want to be hopping around from one to another like some 12 year old (just like i used to do) but I guess I can’t help it if they’re all run by 12 year olds amirite?

Maybe I’ll have to start my own some day, who knows.

God damn it now all I wanna do is play WoW! Motherfucker!

August Thirteenth, Two Thousand and Eight!

Today I decided to stay true to my vow and take it slow with WoW, by playing only CS! I had a great time too, good ol’ CSGamer GunGame. I finally won which hasn’t happened in a long looong time and now my total wins (according to the current stats) is 3. I know I won at least 20 times back in the day, because I used to be fucking ridiculous. I am semi returning to that ridiculous state of skrillz which feels good.

There is this ninja motherfucker named Kenny who plays there and he is the knife master, but I am also a knife master so we have a little knife master rivalry going on which is fun. If we’re on the same team it is just fuckin ridiculous because we knife fuckin everyone. Especially if we go the same way, he’ll knife a guy, I’ll jump in his way and shield him from the bullets and steal the knife, then I stab the next guy and he does the same, it is just fuckin awesome. I really had fun yesterday.

When I used to play at CSGamer I knew all of the regulars (mainly the good ones, but mostly all regulars) and nowadays that list of regulars has changed. But yesterday I think they started to notice me which makes me feel good on the inside like a itty bitty baby.

I’ve got my groove back, just like Stella. I can run and jump and instead of slowing down like most people who jump I speed up or slow down at a much lower rate because I know how to play the damn game.

There was one part that kind of pissed me off though. Me and Kenny had our first one on one knife to the death and I dodged his first couple attacks but he still got me. I jumped too much and then couldn’t move away quick enough. Then he says jump scripts won’t cut it. That made me pretty fuckin mad. Look at my Steam ID, 149960 (I think), that is fucking low man. I’ve been playing since beta 7, I make fun of people who use jump scripts because all the script does is execute commands that you CAN do on your own.

I’m going to try and describe how to “strafe jump”. The most accurate description I can give of it is that you’re “stretching” for extra inches. A lot of people try to strafe jump while still holding down the forward key, and that is wrong. You cannot turn as sharply and stretch your distance as far when you hold forward, now don’t get me wrong, I can do it in scouts knives while still holding forward and sometimes in regular games I will still hold forward to get a longer more obtuse curve, when I’m trying to knife at a greater distance, but the majority of the time you don’t want to.

Okay, here is a brief run through of what to do to strafe jump (you can strafe jump just once and have it be beneficial, it is difficult to jump multiple times and each jump gets harder in a chain of jumps). Hold forward and get to max speed. Jump and immediately let go of forward. While still in the air (hopefully you haven’t reached your maximum jump height yet) hold the left strafe key while also curving your mouse in an upward arch to the left. When you do it right you can feel it. Once you land you better not fucking hit forward. The exact second you land you hit jump again. Just as before you have to do this next part quickly while still in the air. Hold right strafe and curve your mouse in an upward arch (like an upside down U, like this n) to the right.

If you strafe right you curve your mouse right, strafe left curve it left. It isn’t that hard. The best place to practice is probably a Scoutzknivez server because of the low gravity and you don’t slow down hardly at all. Also, while in the air longer due to the low gravity you can practice your air strafe (which is the hard part on normal gravity servers), air strafe being the strafe left curve left strafe right curve right portion of bunny hopping.

The best way to try it out in the field is to play on a normal gravity server. Now run out and kill a couple guys and leave one to run away from. Strafe jumping can help you run away (or at least get out of view) so much that you really should know how to do it. Use it to get around corners as you’re running away. I say running away but I usually just use it to get some cover and to let my enemy’s recoil worsen and his ammo deplete before I jump back out and wtf own his face.

I will (I shouldn’t say this) try and get a semi instructional video made for strafe jumping and put it on here.

Another thing is that you can feel it when you’re doing it. This may sound cheesey like out of some martial arts film but it will feel like you are water. Or at least a paddle in the water carving your way through. It should feel like that and once you know that and how it feels and how it reacts to you then you can start to do some crazy shit.

For instance: most people can only air strafe when alternating directions (left then right etc). I, however, do not need to do this because I am just so god damn amazing. I will try to show you this.

I believe I already have a decent size demo recorded (with the cs tools) of me playing scoutzknivez. I will try and remember to view it today after work and get a little video of it. But it will probably just look fuckin stupid because you really have to move your mouse around a lot. A lot of people tell me that watching me first person makes them sick because of all the moving. Sometimes even I don’t know where I am, but I can always bring it home at the end heh.

Anyways, that was yesterday. Today I may play some CS, I may WoW and try to raid WC again to get a blue 1 hander, but I don’t know yet.

My love goes out to everyone who is losing/has lost their jobs, that shit is fucked up.

Hello there little one

These are not the droids you’re looking for.

No, I’m not playing SWG, though I am very tempted to create a free trial account because my internet doesn’t suck ass like it did last time which made me quit because I couldn’t finish a quest in the huge series that takes you well into your high levels which required me to race to certain points before time ran up, which is difficult with laggy bad comcast bullshit that is available to me.

So what have I been doing? You may be asking yourself. Well, not too much to be honest. I’ve taken it a little slow in Savage 2 recently because they’re fixing so much shit and adding new little neatnesses and such. For instance, they changed required time played to appear on ladder back to 5 hours, so it removed a bunch of demo accounts and put my rank back where it was, close to 1000. They also removed Win:Loss ratio from the formula that equates your Skill Factor (SF), which gave me a 20 point boost in that. So now, I’m ranked under 1000, in the 900s, which is awesome and I’m much more tempted to play some now.

I’m mainly just waiting for the clan ladder and tournaments/matches/league play etc. THE COMPETITION. Which I’m assuming will be coming soon since they now seem to be focusing on clan related issues.

I got my buddy to start playing as well and gave him some good pointers and then he figured the rest out on his own. He finally paid for an account and as soon as he gets 5 hours of play time he will be ranked much higher than myself, which imo, is because I took a long shitty road and I helped him find the short good road.

So, here’s a link to my stats.

In my offtime from Savage 2 I’ve been dabbling a bit in the good ol past time of CS. On my favorite servers provided by CSGamer.com

I’ve watched more American Idol than I’d like to admit, I blame my girlfriend. But I hope that little kid wins, and if not him then I want the Syesha girl or however you spell it, to win. See Syesha is from my town of Sarasota! Sure, she went to Booker, and we all know how dirty that place is (LAWLZ), but she still represents the SRQ NUKKA!

I am so gay for saying that shit btw, just in case you didn’t figure that out yourself.

Anyways, yep, that’s about it. Ohhh!

1-2 more paychecks and I can afford a cruise for 2 from tampa to cozumel mexico. Very exciting stuff, girlfriend is very excited, I’ve got a goal, so it’s a win/win imho.

Sneaky Super Sekr1t Post from Work!

I just finished up one of our biggest/last clients so, chea, time to waste 5 minutes.

This weekend I plan on finally doing something with my WSG footage. The problem with the footage is while I recorded I was listening to music (see: sneak preview part deux). So, if I want to make the video not as fucking long, for you guys’ sake, it might sound kind of fucking stupid.

I plan on taking this blog down a little side road from time to time, to discuss PvP tactics. I’m going to have a sneak preview of this, hopefully, in my WSG video, if the sound isn’t too hard of a thing to figure out.

Later on down the road I’d like to expand on the theories of PvP tactics in games other than WoW, including DAoC and Counter-Strike definitely.

Mainly what I will be trying to highlight is how a PvPer thinks. I’ll be pausing video, pointing little details out, showing you how to outsmart your opponents. I can almost guarantee that when I’m done with you guys that you will be able to tell what some players are going to do, before they even do it.

But, that’s only if you fuckers keep coming here to see me, you knows I loves ya.

Cya this weekend bitches!

COUNTA STRIKE

Yep, that’s what I’ve been doing this whole time, sort of. My Camelot sub ran up, my money ran out, and so I’m stuck with the free shit. I was starting with Source since I’m a 1.6 fan and wanted a challenge, but that changed after I realized they’re not that different from each other, besides my FPS.

So I returned to CSG (CSGamer.com) on the GunGame server. The best cs mod ever, by the way. I occasionally stop by the Scoutzknivez server because I’m just too good at air strafing and shit to not play. But the past few days I’ve been playing on the 24/7 Dust2 server, mainly because they have Psychostats.

So, here’s a link to my Psychostats page for the CSGamer 24/7 Dust2 server.

CLICKEH

In my opinion the most important stuff to look at is on the left hand side. The rank, which has gone from 2721 to 1152 (in a day). My headshot % is 36.99, which isn’t as good as I’d like.

Most importantly you need to remember that I haven’t played regularly in a while so I’m still warming up. Yesterday was my best day yet, I went on a kill streak of 21, in a 15v15 cs game. In time I will have those stats looking as they should. To get an idea of my progress look at Game Sessions at the top. Notice how my Kill:Death ratio changed quite a bit, though my headshot % dropped 😦

My accuracy is friggin pathetic, but I’m not back into my CS groove quite yet. I promise you that my next update will make you be like omgz wow howd he do that? That’s right beatchays.

On a side note check out my man Nubly Mandingo’s new website! www.UBERnubby.com

I almost forgot, regarding my stats page. If you look at my victims and their ranks you will see a “ShoXK” who I have killed 4 times, but who has killed me 6 times. He’s ranked 28, I’ve killed him 40% of the time, and I’m not even near my peak. He’s a good player and I’ve seen him around for over a year I’m sure. When I see the good people and play with them, I naturally just do better. I kill the good people, they usually quit because they die to me soo much and my score is horrible which makes them sad. Soon, I tell ya, soon my stats shall be far better.
