I’m getting old :(

Man, does this suck or what lol. I can’t even fight it, though that is exactly the only thing I can think to do. What am I talking about? Young, dumb, new to MMO fuckheads. They are god damn everywhere and yet again I feel bad about acting like such a douche years ago.

I went to resub to DAoC and was rewarded with 10 days of free time (I’m assuming most inactive DAoC accounts are eligible for this). There is only one cluster now, Ywain, every server has the housing areas up still, but that is it, so you log in on your old server and type /freexfer Ywain1-10 (picking the server to transfer to), but if you are level 50 and from the Classic servers you must talk to the Accountant NPC in front of you when you log in, and do the gift quest (accept/turn in instantly). This quest awards you with (I think 5, that is how many I got) little items which you will be able to turn in for Master Level experience (for Trials of Atlantis). This is awarded to Classic server toons only, as the classic servers did not have ToA content.

Since I have somewhat returned, this also means I have returned to the talking grounds for DAoCers, the great VN Boards hosted by IGN. This is turning out to be quite the mistake and disappointment. What happened to all of the old people? I’m talking late 20s (and not retarded) and up, the adults, the people who work full time and play in their free time. I never thought I would say that I missed them, but I fucking do. Can I even blame WoW? It is the first place I want to lay my blame. All of these old games that I loved are now hollow shells covered in graffiti and the communities that I also once loved are now filled to the brim with jerkoff kids doing and saying the same stupid things I once did.

You may be wondering how I can blame WoW for this. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure some of these fucktards played DAoC back in the day as annoying 12 year olds (I can tell this by their VN Boards join date), but lets not lie to ourselves. What game can you guarantee brought more young kids into the MMO genre than WoW? There isn’t one. Because pretty much any type of gamer you can describe was introduced to the MMO genre mostly by WoW, unless you’re describing the type of player who played MMOs before WoW.

It’s just very disappointing. I go play SWG and find out that theres a shit ton of ridiculous kids running rampant all over the shit. I return to DAoC hoping to find the few people who still love the game and see that everyone started playing 2 years ago and are a bunch of fuckin shitfaces. Ugh!

I always thought as I got older I’d slowly merge into the older people group and finally be a part of the “majority” (back then it seemed like a majority of MMOers were older/mature) yet thanks to fucking WoW as I’m merging into the older group, I’m leaving the fucking majority and re-entering the minority. I just can’t win lol.

I’ve been considering pulling a Pitrelli recently. I can’t do that until I have a plan for returning though. I dunno.

Anyways, god damn kids, got off my lawn!

edit–
P.S. I never thought I’d be going to play Counter-Strike to interact with adults.

Miscellaneous… A.K.A. random motherfucker

I just checked out FreeRealms again. I’m still #1, well I would be if I paid $5.00 which I just might do. However, if I do, I’ll be creating many more characters so that I can be ranked #’s 1-5 or however many characters you get. Yeah and I’m gonna make all of their names incredibly similar. I see that the top ranked players have changed quite a bit, someone has over 21000 now, but they’re still 600 points below me. I really don’t think these kids are trying hard enough. I mean, I’m 22 and I smoke a lot of pot. How on earth could my reaction time and hand eye coordination be better than a bunch of kids? I can never get as good at CS as I used to be, so that rules out the whole, I’ve still got it theory.

I’m a dumbass IRL. I almost threw away my relationship because I’m a tool shed. Now I just do what I’m told and uhh, leave the cave. I really like my cave though, it is very comfy. I’ve made an appointment to see my rapist again after a few weeks or a month hiatus. I don’t think it is going to do much, but we’ll see. When it gets to the point that I feel like I’m just talking to another friend, that’s when I should stop paying for it imo. Before I stopped it was as if I was going to school but I didn’t do my homework. He’d ask me what I needed today and I’d be like shit man I don’t know. Can you make everything awesome? How about a bunch of money? I don’t fucking know what I need that’s why I came to see you. I can only stress out about my required tasks so much. Eventually I just keep going because I get out of work an hour early.

Does everyone have to get mad at the things they are tired of or want to distance themselves from? When I take breaks from weed, I have to hate the shit and everyone who is pro it. I feel like I have to get mad at my therapist so he stops trying to reschedule me every week. My brother and his friends will say that any MMO I am playing sucks pretty much because it isn’t WoW or EQ1. My brother doesn’t even know shit about MMOs, but he still does it. One of his friends is one of those big queers that played EQ1 for 5 years but acts like they played everything a lot. I played that game for 5 minutes, it fuckin sucked. Okay WoW boy, enjoy your 10 years til max level and then your 10 years of raiding. See, you have to hate shit. I’m pretty sure you only have to do it because everyone wants to be right or everyone thinks they’re right. Technically we all are, because we had to make the decision to switch from game A to game B for ourselves. Guess what you told yourself before you did it? That it was the right decision. So when we start talking about our preferences with one another, their decisions conflict with our decisions, and the next thing we know we’re trying to shove each others’ games down the others’ throat.

Am I getting too old for online games? I’m sure the really old people would laugh their ass off at that, but I am kind of serious. It seems like every game community I glance at is plagued with a bunch of retarded high school failures who think they’re owed the world from everyone else. Do not go to suggestion forums ever! It is the worst fucking place in all of the internet. 95% of the posts you find will be kids requesting changes so that they can do better. They don’t even realize they’re doing it. They think that everyone already knows that it needs to be done. But they are not aware that they’re being selfish little entitled fucks. Shit, they probably think they’re doing the community a great service, because they found the obvious unbalance in the games code. Been there, done that.

I’ve been imagining myself diving into a community. Actually communicating with strangers and not holding back or fitting in, just being myself and seeing how it goes. In my fantasies it all works out great, the guild or community molds itself around me and accepts me, but I’m pretty damn sure that wouldn’t be the case. Some of my best grouping experiences in MMOs was when I grouped up with some Euro players in DAoC. They needed a Skald, and I have a level 50 one. I got on their vent and everything. I couldn’t understand one fuckin word, but it didn’t matter, because we all knew what to do (well, I didn’t, but they did heh). I find myself in a similar situation on my current free server, Uthgard.

It is an “international” server which means a fuck ton of Euros not from the UK with sprinkles of english speaking peoples. Still, there are tons of entitled retarded fucks, they just have horrible broken english now. Which kind of makes it less irritating I guess, more comical, but I can still decipher the shit and figure out that they’re stupid fucking kids thinking they’re pulling a fast one and that they’ll finally be OPed and awesome. Except they don’t consider being OPed a bad thing, to them it just means they’re good. Been there, done that.

Happiness is when your actions line up with your morals.

How does one go about “turning over a new leaf”? I sometimes consider sitting down and making huge lists. These lists will be like checklists for my life. Get up before 7:20, shower, brush teeth, be out of the door by 7:50. I would need sooo many though. Dirty a dish? Clean it before doing anything else. Trash? Empty immediately. Laundry as soon as the hamper is full. Car tires feeling funny? Get them looked at. Need to sign up for school? Fucking do it! Have you taken Melanie out recently? Do it. Work would be pretty difficult. Are you blogging? Stop. Are you reading blogs? Fucking stop it! Do everything you have to do and ask for more you lazy motherfucker. Easier said than done(el cop out?).

I’ve discovered that the Uthgard server is really incomplete. They plan on having the SI zones in, but they’re not done. There is not one named Tomte outside of Nisse’s at the camps nearby. Whole spawns are missing. Tons of quests are missing. Loot. Everything. The battlegrounds seem like the biggest joke. Thidranki allows up to level 46. Yep, the 20-24 battleground is open to level 46s. There is also a whole army of give it to me now kiddies who just want to stay in the BGs all day long. What I believe is that the staff listened to their requests in the beginning, unaware that they would never want to leave. Now the staff is complaining that the players are complaining.

The one thing I wanted was the ability to go up to named guards after level 10, target them, and /s task. You used to get a task to go kill a blue mob in the surrounding area, you’re given a direction and everything, plus when you return you get an uber XP reward and a decent amount of coin. I’m pretty surprised that it isn’t in.

I believe one of the biggest problems is that the server is billed as a Classic server. I have a feeling the majority of the vocal players didn’t play the game in it’s first year or two. Even the ones that did are confusing features from years 3 through 6 (or however many years its been out) with features from the first couple years. Tireless is supposed to be an RA not a passive ability most classes get. Boats and griffins are not supposed to be in the game. Nor is spellcrafting and alchemy.

I just don’t know what to do anymore. Do I even enjoy playing these games? Isn’t it just the same damn thing painted a different way, maybe with a different shape every now and then? I find that I’ve had the most fun in online games when I am either playing with RL friends (which hasn’t happened very often since high school) or if I feel like I’m somehow getting the upper hand over people. I believe the upper hand feeling is usually attributed to me being OP. Sometimes it is because people are simply stupid or nervous in a fight, but those don’t feel as good. In Scoutzknivez it can feel really good though. However, it usually ends up ruining my own fun.

There are some players who are pretty damn good at Scoutzknivez. They join the server and see how many kills they can get before they die, sometimes they get in their 20s before it happens. What I like to do is lower their morale. Because it is such a real thing in games, it really is, I don’t have any proof but I guarantee you it exists. Many people care about their kill:death ratio in CS, but CS is a random game, you can be awesome but a newb across the map can spray and kill you. That is just the way it is, and I have accepted that, unlike the majority of the players striving to be good. You will see people retrying a lot, because it resets their score. Some will even join the opposite team after retrying just so they can have a good score even though they’re obviously stacking the team.

I don’t get how they can lie to themselves into thinking they’re better than they are, but I don’t get a lot of things. Anyways, I like to kill these people. I make it my mission, because it can be pretty hard. Especially when you’re almost always on the losing team, which means you’re out of the door faster, which means the whole enemy team aims at you before they see your teammates. It can get tough, but that’s how I like it. Usually when I kill them they have to say something, they have to, they can’t not say something. It’s funny because they’ll even be better than me at times yet they will always say something when I kill them. It’s basic psychology, they feel threatened, they’re defending their pride or whatnot, I get it. But I also think it is funny.

Another part of that is my score. I’m usually showing more deaths than kills, yet I’ll be the only person killing the best dude on the other team. They see my score and instantly say it was luck. Because how could someone with a score that bad kill them, amirite? Problem is (finaly the point) that they’re sore losers. They’ll quit, take their friends with them, and before I know it the server is empty save myself and a few newbs. So I kill my own fun.

Last week I was playing a lot more Scoutzknivez and the regular good people began to realize that I always do that (even though I’ve been playing there for 4-5 years and I’ve seen them all many times before). Then I began being a member of the stacked team. Why? Because they’d join my side. So I’d try switching sides when it became so obviously unfair, few rounds down the road and now the other team is quitting. Why? Because they switched to my effin team again. Some of them don’t do that, some of them do it because they don’t like me sneaking up on them and raping them, others because they like me. My favorite time is when the teams are fair, each having a few good guys, and if I still win. That’s the money.

Anyways, that’s about it for today. I’m considering a new blog for a new avenue of expression, but you know me, I do everything I plan on.

Bai2us

Gahh I have to make myself post here because it is so ugly

Ewww.

Look at how ugly this whole place is, it is fuckin ugly and you know it. I’d like to someday soon get a rittle domain thing goin again. I believe bonedead.com is currently available. It used to be unavailable because some fucking 33 year old loser in fuckin Missouri had it forwarding to his loser fuckin myspace page, like a fuckin loser. LOL

Anyways, other people are fucking faggots. Try searching the US WoW Armory for characters named Bonedead. 3 of the fuckin 34 are me. Are you kidding me? I have kept my name in it’s seventh grade form for the sole fact that even kids would make fun of it’s unoriginality (though it was 100% original for the longest time). What the fuck is this internet world coming to? I may just have to come up with something new and original and hopefully I’ll have to wait another 10 years before someone steals it. I was leaning towards Fartknocker, because I used to say that a lot as a kid and I don’t think that many people remember it. Plus for some reason it is once again hilarious to me to call someone a Fartknocker.

Oh my god, so I just searched bonedead on the armory and there is even a guild named bonedead, jesus fuckin christ are you serious? Is this really happening? Wonder what kind of results fartknocker gets. Well god damnit, there are 52 fuckin fartknockers named fartknocker. Hmm, wonder what kind of results buttnugget gets. Hey 0 for buttnugget, I’m guessing it is the double t gettin caught in the name filter… and whatdya know, 23 Butnuggets. I’m going to find an awesome one with 0 fuckin entries and then I’ll be fucking unique and special! GORAMIT! (like the dude said in that serenity/firefly movie)

Bonhead only has 1 character and I’ve actually gone by that nickname a few times. The character was last updated November 07, so we may have a winner. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not doing any paid character name changes or anything, but maybe when I redo this place it’ll be Bonhead’s Adventures, sounds more childish anyway and we all know that is what I’m all about.

Well now that that is out of the way, let’s move on to what the fuck I have been doing. You can probably guess that I’ve been playing WoW since I mentioned the armory like 20 times up above. Well, I’ve been playing WoW.

I am Horde on the Drak’thul server, my character’s name is Bonedead. Bonedead is a level 20 Tauren Warrior and he is a member of the guild Unfulfilled Destiny. I thought this would be a good guild to join because the name pretty much sums up how I feel about my relationship with WoW.

This go around I am taking my time, no rushing. I’m trying to raise my mining/blacksmithing as much as I try to level and it has been slowing down in the tradeskill department because the switch from Copper to Tin to Silver is leaving me with fewer and fewer resources which means I can’t craft and level it up as quickly as I’d like :(.

Yesterday was pretty good though, my guild made a group for WC (Wailing Caverns, I’m already going full on lingo on your ass bitch!) and we started with 4 of us and 1 stranger. We had me a 19 warrior, guildie 19 hunter, guildie 26 shaman, guildie 14 pally (healer who let me die like 500 times), and a non guildie level 20 tank druid.

The newby pally child was whining in guildchat about no one rushing him through RFC (Ragefire Chasm) when we don’t have 1 level 70 in the guild and most are 20-30. So we invited him with us as a healer. So of course about halfway through WC he gives a short 3 liner and disappears. Nobody caught it except me and I didn’t see it until 5 minutes after he said it. “gtg, sorry, later” Fuckin kids.

Yes, I’ve been “raiding”. I am 100% positive there is some hardcore carebear reading this that wants to call me a fuckin newb because I consider doing WC and RFC as raiding, and to that person I say, fuck you faggot! Hope you enjoy being some PvE monster in an online video game, you’re pretty good at killin monsters buddy, you should be proud.

Back on topic: I’ve been raiding recently and it isn’t half bad. I’ve got this urge to raid everything, more than once! I think it is either a combination of being able to tell who is a little annoying kid in WoW and the voice chat. Man am I glad there is now voice chat, here is why:

A guildie of mine (19 Warrior at the time) was throwing together a group to do RFC. I was 14 and wanted to go along. We had 1 Priest squishy healer that was extra squishy and a 14 paladin (isn’t that weird how all the blood elf paladins are fucking loser 12 year old faggots?). Anyways, we clear basically the whole place with Mr. Awesome Paladin being cooler than ever. “I should be the only one with agro” “I am the healer” “I am the tank and the healer lol!!11”

Yeah, he pretty much really said that. While we have a 19 warrior who is tanking and doing just fine. Anyways we’re all being quiet because we don’t wanna tell the Paladin that he is an uber fucking tool. After we finished basically the last boss Mr. Cooler Than Words Paladin’s dad is heard on the microphone. Why? Because the stupid fucking kid doesn’t have it set to push-to-talk because he’s a fucking loser. So we hear his dad say something along the lines of “hurry up you little fucking loser” and then Mr. Cool As Shit Paladin tries to be sooo cute and funny and starts hinting at a Leeroy Jenkins, you know, because doing that in RFC really ruins peoples days…. oh wait that’s right, no it doesn’t because it is the fucking lowest level dungeon in the game.

Anyways after the last boss when everyone was looking at the loot we accidentally let the priest die. Mr. Paladin wanted us to go up top and kill some dude for some quest his little faggot ass had, we told him that he should probably rez the healer so we could but he didn’t hear that, he just kept saying come on guys I’m 12, pleeeaaasssee hate me.

So after a while of him not rezzing the priest he aggros all the mobs and they slowly run across the map and kill us as we’re lookin at our phats not caring about dying. Then he starts laughing like it was funny over the voice chat. This is when I decide, hey, I’m pretty good with kids in cs, why not WoW?

I told the kid he was sooo fucking hilarious and such a genius for thinking of doing that all on his own in RFC. He is surprised, he didn’t think any of us could hear him because we didn’t respond at the beginning when he was talking like a fag. Then I went on to make fun of him for sucking ass and not rezzing the priest and not getting his quest done before he had to go and that we heard his dad tell him to get off and that he must feel like a real big guy havin his dad tell him to get off the computer. Then I raised my voice (in hopes of him using speakers and his dad hearing) and said that his parents must be proud of raising such a retarded little child.

Then my guildmate (19 warrior who made group) starts laughing in chat and mentions how that newb used to be in our guild like 3 days ago. Then we split and went our separate ways, it was a good experience.

I used to hate grouping because I always felt like I couldn’t do anything about it if people sucked or were lame, but with voice chat, I think I could get in to this “PvE” you speak of.

Peace bitches, I’ll be back lat0rz0rz!

P.S.- I’m not gonna do the D2 giveaway cus I’m gay and I don’t care about D2.
