Impressions Upon Return

Mar 20, 2017 | | Say something

I will say immediately: the average twitch viewer has become incredibly more positive. People apologize or leave immediately if they offend me, and that is a truly incredible thing. It inspires me to be more pleasant to them, when they are rarely ever the same people, and that really surprised me. More than anything else. […more]

Hearthstone Arena Time Commitment Heuristics

Feb 20, 2017 | | Say something

I have an enormous preoccupation with data, just below the capacity that would make it a marketable skill, and just above the point where I actually do anything. With the announcement of Hearthstone Arena leaderboards, I decided to determine how much time I would actually have to spend playing/streaming to place on the leaderboard. Don’t […more]

Gaming GENESIS

May 6, 2016 | | Say something

It really bothers me that my first console was the Genesis, just because of the pun. Streaming order: Black Desert Online (paid too much to stop playing this) Hearthstone Arena (bread and butter, decent audience I guess) Steam Reviews (ugh) Faeria (another overpay) EMULATION (this post) So I haven’t been streaming enough because BDO is […more]

Streaming is Bad Luck

Seriously though why doesn’t this shit ever happen when people are watching? I feel like an audience is the number one contributor to bad RNG. CONSPIRACY, etc….  

Dozen Arena Mage Newb

Aug 26, 2015 | | Say something

I achieved my first 12-win Arena today. As with all accomplishments in my life, allow me to reduce the shit out of it so it doesn’t sound like that much of an achievement any more. lol sux Mage incidentally, both games that were lost were lost to Mage, but I was afk for one of […more]

Hearthstone SCALE

Jul 31, 2015 | | Say something

I have a dirty, filthy lust for spreadsheets and initialisms. I’ve identified that the game that intersects on “size of audience” and “my ability to play” is definitely Hearthstone. There’s no doubt in my mind there are games I like more, nor doubt that there are more popular games. But if there’s a game that […more]

My favorite streamer right now is Ratsmah. He’s super helpful if you’re into dry sarcasm and being good at Hearthstone arena. (Also super aesthedorable, see below.) http://youtu.be/K0pVi7m0M2wVideo can’t be loaded: Positivity Day (http://youtu.be/K0pVi7m0M2w)

One Week Streak

Jun 17, 2015 | | Say something

Yesterday marked my first solid week of streaming. I only started streaming with any regularity less than a month ago, but this was the first time I’ve streamed seven consecutive days. The only consensus opinions on stream schedule seems to be: Every day (or the same days every week) For at least three hours At […more]

Misplay Highlight Video

Jun 6, 2015 | | Say something

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGdqzdevWAEVideo can’t be loaded: Piloted Sky Miss (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGdqzdevWAE) I haven’t been able to decide if including the draft in my arena misplay videos makes sense. Arguably, my entire draft is a misplay, but I guess since it’s not REALLY why I’m making the clips…

MassaRat Draft

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=M2t3lhv6oUcVideo can’t be loaded: Hearthstone – Ratsmah drafts arena with MaSsan (educational) 1/3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=M2t3lhv6oUc) I’m a big fan of both Ratsmah and MaSsanSc, though Rats is probably my favorite arena player overall, getting him to explain his picks is a huge value to any new Arena players. I highly recommend you watch and pay attention, […more]
