Taking a Break

I'm going to take a break on League of Legends for a bit. Probably play it once in a while so my rating don't deteriorate. I'm not too good, but hopefully I won't be failing my rating and going to elo hell. Speaking of hell, I'll probably be playing TF2 once in a while. I still don't like this game, but there are going to be times were I'm going to have bad WoW days and I need some venting. So venting on a poor-quality game like TF2 will suffice. And speaking of WoW, I will be playing World of Warcraft again for a while. Hopefully longer if it permits me. If you want to see more posts about it, just go here for my WoW blog. And just to show that I'm not only into PC gaming, have some Tales of Graces videos:

Spies Are Broken

Every time I use one, I die the moment they look at me funny. Yet every time someone else uses a Spy, they get me in the most impossible ways. I just remember this Spy was literally stabbing in the front of me as a Medic with full health and died every time. Heck, I don't believe the knife is that strong to kill me in one go. Not to mention there was no critical buff on him or anything. Just slash and go like a hacker. Jeez, no wonder why I hate this game. Just lame moments were they can kill anyone like butter.

LoL: First Defeated Ranked Match

First time jungling in rank match and it was fail on selection screen. Naut/Darius/Morgana/Shen/Shaco/Kass was banned, but seem like it didn't matter. Not to mention our Viegar started getting countered by Ryze extremely hard (had to start ganking him 24/7 since he was just too much on Viegar to the point of slowly getting fed). Riven gave up on top and bot was slowly getting ganked out too hard thanks to Viegar feeding. This is why I tend to play mid often because someone is just going to fail mid and it all spirals down into the crapper. Maybe we still would've lost, but jungling isn't my thing and Shyvana takes a while to lay down damage on certain champions. Oh well, better luck next week.

What Is Wrong With This Mode!?

Seem like I can't get into any games for MvM. Every time I pop one open, I get these stupid messages as to why I can't join in (bad password, bad connection, "bad game"; ok, I give that last one some credit). So I have to re-join the 30-45 minutes of searching for another game. And I thought WoW was bad at this, but this game blows it out of the water for waiting times. Not to mention at least I had something to do. I'm just sitting at my computer doing nothing productive while it's wasting time for another excuse as to why I can't join in. This game sure can scam my time away without even trying.

Also, the bad games I get into makes all those bad LoL matches I had a good feeling. Valve really screw up this mode a lot.

This Mode Is So Fail...

Right now, it takes up to 40+ minutes just to get into any MvM game. Not to mention I don't have 5 friends willing to play this at the same time, so playing this mode is probably improbable right now. Even with the join game in progress checked, it's still not letting me in. Released on the first day and it's already failing. What's worse is that you have to buy tickets to use just to get anything noteworthy of your success. Valve sure know how to disappoint.

By the way, if you're having trouble getting to download in the first place, just change your downloading region to another country. It'll go by a lot faster.

I Still Don't Like This Game (You Know What This Is)...

...And I'm still playing it! I don't get it. I really despise this game like the plague, but I just keep coming back to it like it's my last salvation. I don't know what to do at this rate. However, this lackluster game isn't giving me items after disconnect for some reason. I use to get a lot of them after leaving a server, but now it's barely or once a moon. Seems like after I'm getting use to the game, it starts to bite back at me. I still hate it though.

Shooters In General Is Slowly Dying of Creativity...

I know Team Fortress 2 is crap, but sadly it's one of the better shooters out there (again, not saying it with high praise since I still hate this game). Seems like the only good shooters were the old ones, like Halo (where it set the bar for shooter games and not many has passed it; and maybe Halo 2 due to online function help made online shooters more popular), Unreal Tournament, Counterstrike, Doom, and a few others.

Nevertheless, the point here is that today shooters are barely different from each other. Some shooters (like Call of Duty series) are pumping out sequels without a second thought (and with barely any improvements). Other shooters (like Max Payne 3 & Brink) try to do something completely different, but still feel like a clone to another game. They're not good as they use to be no more. It's like all they care about now is just graphics, visuals, and realism (for some games).

What happen to the "fun" aspect for shooters? Where we can say good shot from afar or coming back from near death or saying this guy is really good. Now all I can see from it is competition to see who can call each other names the best with broken language (lucky shot "nub"; u sux; hax). This goes for any other genre with online gameplay, but it's most potent with shooters. No wonder why most shooters today are very bland. Just seems like any shooter touched by the Internet will be gutted like a poor, baby sea lion wanted to go back to his mother. The same stuff with nothing new and rude people to ensure it's the same.
