F3AR

F3AR – First 3 Arena Runs I noticed that the first two or three runs of any stream tend to go horribly. I attribute this to not doing any warm-up games before stream. I don’t do warm-up games off-stream because it feels like a waste of gold. Nobody’s in the stream for the first two…


Rum Time

RUM = RNG, Uncertainty, Misplay – this is basically the reason I want to review the play later. +/- = Whether the RUM that turn seemed to affect me negatively or positively. I intentionally do not allow a neutral option here. If my determination in the moment is wrong, that’s┬ápart of the review process. I…


14 Hour Arena Stream Review

Determining a stream schedule can be a bit of a struggle. I have two 12-hour shifts at work every weekend. It’s enormously difficult to want to wake up at midnight to get a six-hour stream in before my shifts. Mondays I’m similarly fried. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are days that I go to the gym,…


Pre-Ungoro Class Spread

I think I was a bit too story-time in my last class discussion. Here’s a snapshot look at how I feel about the classes according to the 49 runs I did in March. I’ve added the stats below. The column for “tier” is inaccurate, that was around the Whispers era I think. I haven’t gotten…


Impressions Upon Return

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….


Hearthstone Arena Time Commitment Heuristics

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…


Gaming GENESIS

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…


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

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…
