OMFG, what else can I say?  I really don’t get the SWTOR dialog options sometimes.  I got presented with a dialog choice with Talos, my cute little nerd for “are you flirting with me?”.  I was excited because I thought I’d say that all flirty and get flirty options back.



But NO!!!  Instead when I selected “are you flirting with me?”   I said “I’m sorry Talos I like you but I just don’t think of you that way” WHAT???? WHAT????!?!?!?!  GOD DAMN IT!!!



All the Skill

As the new characters are rolling out, it feels a bit like some others got left behind.  That’s not to say they aren’t good, just that others are better.  I’m sure this is an unpopular opinion but I think Pharah needs some minor buffs.  She’s the only character that freezes in place during her ult, which means she’s a complete sitting duck and almost never gets her entire ult line off.  Someone even made a joke video about that, in fact.  Justice rains from AAH!  Justice AHH!  Justice rains AHH!  If she gets out the entire line, the other team is objectively terrible, imo.

McCree is somewhat close behind because he glows and moves slowly but, his range is much better so he can be almost anywhere and after the slight charge up, he fires immediately.

The other thing is, why is she able to kill herself with her rockets or her ult? No one else is like this (other than Soldier and his rockets, I think).  Junkrat was inexplicably made safe from his own bombs and was made safe from her own ult (which she should have been).  But turn to get someone and accidentally hit a skinny road sign? Cool, you just killed yourself.

I tried looking back through the patch notes, but it feels like Widowmaker got buffs. I went all the way back to April but I didn’t see anything.  It feels like her non-snipe damage went way back up, since she can often melt me as when I’m in her face.  Additionally it feels like it takes way too much to kill Widow, since I’ve hit her with Pharah, or, or have been spraying bullets right on her when she had 1 sliver of health and she still didn’t die.  Add that to rapid fire sniping and wtf really? Oh and plus the grapple.  I meant to do a test game with a widow just standing in place and see how long it takes me to kill her.  I feel it’s way longer than other classes especially because of her small hitbox, which I’m almost guessing was possible made even skinnier. When I’m Pharah I try to counter Widow  but it feels like even if I hit her with a rocket, it barely does anything.



Well, chasing after Thanatan has been taking a really, really long time.


I got to visit Harkun again but for some reason fraps didn’t want to save my screenshots.  He’s extra super polite to me these days, though.  I still find him spicey.  I mean really he’s basically like the baby sitter of the incompetent and totally racist to anyone not human but yeah.  This game really has great quests.

Yes, but they aren’t ME

I have something of a habit of fighting bitterly with people I end up reconciling with and end up with a friend.  That may be the case with this Solo bozo. He asked if anyone wanted to duel and I accepted, and proceeded to try to beat the living hell out of him for something like 10 straight minutes.  No joke, we went until after the battle ended.

But thanks to a dumb legendary he has that heals for 3% total health whenever he doesn’t move, I could close not the deal. But I felt better after.

He ended up btag inviting me and I grudgingly had to say he was decent.  And I’ve heard this before but I got “I can kill other discs”.  Yes, but they aren’t ME.


Then as you may see, he also replied with a similar line of “im not any hunter” when I said I’ve killed hunters before.

As I stand in Tol Barad

Tol Barad is now cross-realmed so, there are many players from many servers there.  Of course today it was only Alliance, but still.


I had been talking about this yesterday too, but I’ve made a lot of Horde friends over the years, when I was Alliance.  Other than that one rogue at the Crossroads, and Predator at Halaa, I can’t think of any Alliance friends I made when I was Horde. At any rate, I decided to write a refresher of those people.

Ladiesman, Blood Elf Rogue:  Met in Tol Barad when I played Ocyla, and he relentlessly targeted me and impressed everyone with how slippery he was avoiding death.  We were good friends for around 3 years when, at the end of 2014, he just went dark on game and Skype.

Fratricide, Blood Elf Paladin:  Met in Wintergrasp, as he was going after the 7k bounty Ladiesman put on me.  Ended up joining his guild when I went horde for a time.

Sealgaer, Blood elf hunter:  Met in Tol Barad, I nearly killed him but he misdirected Problim on me and I died.  I was impressed and went over to say “GG”.  Some time later, he remembered me, and we became friends and he joined my guild on Alliance. We still talk on and off.

Kuraha, rogue, can’t recall race: Met when I was world defending the towers out in Hellfire.  I got killed many times against he and his friend but, we had a friendly talk and I ended up joining his guild on Ghostlands as a rogue.

Deterrence/Predator: Human hunter: gave me a ridiculously hard time when I was Horde trying to defend Halaa.  I recall being scatter trapped into an ice trap, and then explosive trapped off the side, to my death in the deceptively shallow water.  That was one of those times where you take your hands off the keyboard and go “well shit”.  We use to do a lot of wpvp together.  We still talk sometimes.

Oltar, horde orc shaman:  Enhancement shaman who liked to cause trouble in Elwynn forest, who was cheeky!  I couldn’t 1v1 him for the life of me.  We did a lot of wpvp in the forest and played some OW, but, he disappeared entirely a while back.  I make a Frostwolf Ghostpup named after him run after me sometimes.

Shaco, undead horde rogue:  Use to cause trouble at the logging camp and I’d fight him on my priest.  I don’t remember him soloing me, but he likes to tell wild tales about how he masters all classes and beats up everyone all the time.  Rather annoying at this point.

Stabbs, horde rogue: We use to fight in Darkshire a lot, I would only win because glitter bombs were kind of OP back then.


Hmm.  All I can think of at the moment.
