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,…


Main Crisis

Maining Aesthetics I haven’t really played League of Leagues, or Dota, or any class-based arena games because I have no loyalty. Or, I can never pick a main. I can never stick with a character long enough to “gitgud,” erroneously believing it’s the character and not my skill level that’s disappointing everyone. The other source…


Games Library

WIP. I own more games than described below, these will just be what I have installed and can play immediately if I call for requests. PS4 Bloodborne DC Universe Online (idk why) Dragon Quest Builders Grand Theft Auto 5 Gravity Rush Horizon Zero Dawn Let It Die Until Dawn


Domina Exploit

Credit to chat-goer xenoaristo for turning me onto this strategy. Anything in italics are things that I’ve contributed as ideas for a better start, but they are not crucial to the point of the opening strategy. The gist of it is to attempt to buy a strong Gladiator from the Legate and skill him up…


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…


Snake vs Kevin McCallister

Solid Snake generally works on a procurement-on-site philosophy, so we can assume he’s still going to Outer Kevin with nothing. Counterpoint is that Kevin’s design philosophy is that he must be completely solitary for his architectural traps to be functional. He is “home alone” after all. In a scenario where Outer Kevin is in effect,…
