End of the year reflections.

How do they hinder game play?

I recently read a forum post about a player that is physically disabled with CP (Cerebral palsy) and instead of the community stepping up and offering him helpful suggestions on how they could become a better tank, they started to bash them instead , calling them a troll, and what not. Contrary to what players say, you do NOT have to have lightening reflexes, you just have to know your class, and advance class, and all their abilities. Use key bindings if you have too, I have tried in the past, but I tend to stop looking at the screen and click on my mouse so much that I just forget to even attempt to try key bindings. Regardless of having physical issues, even mental issues, picking on someone because they come out and say “Hey, I’m a little slow because I have a disability” does not give you the right to bash them because they choose to play an MMORPG. Now I did read all the posts before I started this post, and saw a few had given him/her good suggestions on how to play better as a tank, and I hope those are the ones he/she will read instead of all the hate. But it still raises a question as to the whether or not about gamers having no heart or for that matter common sense. If you play a tank role, and have done well in solo style, and attempt to play in a group content , still does not give anyone the right to bash them. Now me, I never qued as a Tank, I played as a DPS with a tank setting, and it worked out well for me. Then again I only did KYD a few dozen times and it was fun to do with others that just didn’t care what spec I was. Just that I could keep a live, and do things like run around hitting Kolto stations, and etc. Course as of late I just don’t have it in me to play much like I was in the past. I think that is because I just don’t have it in me to spend countless hours there at the moment. Grinding for my alliance is boring, and life day event is just blah since it seems to break all the other things that were suppose to happen. But I do have a mental condition. So because I have a short fuse, and self esteem issues, I tend to avoid group content. I believe even my trooper now has the Op for Oricon.

Year End Reflections

So for 2015 it was a great year for me in SW:ToR and by that I mean. I’ve been a sub for over a year now, met some great people through the blogs, made a solid stand as a solo player that tends to try and help others in game, or even on a blog to bring a smile during some depressing times. Even though I tend to hide behind that and let my own issues stay silent because that is how I am. So I am going to break this down month by month for my year end review, I mean why not, there are only 4 days left in the year, and we’re on the last week of this month.

January

Would play and hit the first level 60 player and beat Revan in SoR so many times by then that I became instantly numb from the achievement. Mainly stayed to myself and became a solid solo player that would group up on occasions.

February

Got my first achievement in crafting with a 500 in Cyber tech and Scavenging. Also finally got my first Sith Inquistor Daeqius to level 60 and finished his story line. Also got a Imperial Agent to level 60 and finished his class missions.

March

Still did my own thing in soloing, but also started planning out this blog only after realizing I was paying for hosting and a domain name that was rarely being used. Also started looking into other MMOs but did not get involved in them. Just put them as a possibility.

April

Ahhh this month became something more to me, because I finally started to blog a little, while still playing and taking screenies of my game..

May

I was also a part of a Community on google+ that was for SW:ToR fans, matter of fact I just recently rejoined, but it’s where I met Zernebog, who then introduced me to others like Ravanel Griffon who then introduced me to taking part in a blogging type thing, that I totally did not entirely do because I just don’t feel that my blogging style fits in anywhere ,Here is my list from the NBI that I took part in.

June

This month had a lot of ups and downs. I was social, then became unsocial and went back to solo style playing again. Left a good guild, and just dropped out of sight, but still posted blogs here and there. Started playing GW2, and started to take breaks from SW:ToR all together. Had a ton of posts in June too,

July

Was not a good month for me, I was sexually harassed and I did not like it, and it prompted me to leave for a week or two, or just limit who I played with, which was mostly my male characters because well I’ll be honest ERP just turns me off in the worse way. So I don’t want to deal with anything of that sort.

August

This month was okay I guess for me. Nothing really big, I just started  to avoid all the spoilers that were lurking about the latest expansion in SW:ToR

September

So at the end of August , beginning of Sept. I finally unlocked all the species to play in SW:ToR and had to only buy two of them because you can’t unlock them through game play and by hitting level 50. So yeah I had some great achievements this year as well.

October

Celebrated my 1 year subscription to my favorite MMO. Also I got into the early access for the latest expansion. Knights of the Fallen Empire, and got all the subscriber rewards that were offered if one was subscribed. I loved it all too because it meant a new way to play. Sadly though those 9 chapters went by toooo damn fast and now we’re left grinding out our alliances.

November

I stepped away from SW:Tor for a bit, and went to play LOTR, and Neverwinter, GW2 of course. But of course I always come back to SW:ToR all because I have so much time and money invested too, then my computer issues started to show up, and I opted to cut a lot of game play out for the most part. Plus SW:Tor was filled with more bugs than anything, like the despawn timer on dead bodies that plagued Heroic areas specially on DK with all the vine cats being piled upon one another.

December

Now this month I have celebrated my birthday, made it through Christmas with no fighting, instead on Christmas night, I found a site online to watch the new SW movie and we watched it with a bad cam image, but at least now I can say I have watched Star Wars:The Force Awakens. No I won’t give you spoilers on that movie. Like video games I don’t do spoiling shit. I let other assholes do that for you. I also decided to go back into the virtual world Second Life and started blogging mens fashions there since there are so many female fashion bloggers out there. Outside of the virtual worlds and games I celebrated my 1st christmas with Raven and she is the best thing in my life even when my partner and I fight a lot and have been for the last few months.

 

100_1189 This is Raven and I on Christmas night. Hence the date. I felt it fitting to update my RL Facebook picture with one of her and I because I felt it was time to move on from losing my 1st pup Sammie this year.

I still think of Sammie on day to day basis, and I still miss her, but I know in my heart she would want me to share the same love I gave her over to Raven, so I have done so, and will continue to love her just as much if not more , but also keeping sammie alive in my heart.

 

 

 

319942_4728824614097_414774170_n This was my baby girl Sammie and even though she is no longer with me in her doggie form, she is still in my heart and has helped me so much and now I realize that I must let Raven do the same as Sammie did for me. I am a dog lover and always will be. No one will ever take that away from me.

 

 

 

Anyways to end this post. There are a few more days left to this year, and I plan to make the most of them and bring 2016 in a good way, what I will do, is beyond me because I’m not sure how I will celebrate it yet. Enjoy your holidays where ever you may be, and thanks for reading.

No you can not haz my stuff!!

That’s right, It’s been said..

I decided over the weekend to take a look into other games since there seems to be a numerous amount of bugs still lingering around in SW:ToR. So first game I decided to go back too was Guild Wars 2, where I seem to look at the icon on my desktop but forget to actually let the game update from time to time.

So this is a little video clip I did while playing that game for about an hour or so. Still love the graphics in it and all, but overall not really the highest game in my priority list. The next game I decided to try was LOTR (Lord of the Rings) and well it’s another slower grind to level up as well. Here is another clip of me playing.

 

Next up I decided to try Neverwinter I had heard a lot of talk about this game and decided well I wanted to give it a try because I remember hearing how it sucked and everything, but over all I enjoyed it a lot. Then again I do love fantasy stuff a lot. So here is a small clip of that gameplay as well.

I don’t use YouTube to upload videos as often because well YouTube is good, but honestly they are not really my favorite place to go often. I got into this other gaming website called “Plays.tv” the reason for them is because they are truly a video gamers paradise with all sorts of videos and etc. I found them through the Raptr, AMD gaming evolved application I get when updated a lot, and when I install a new AMD Driver for my CPU/Graphics. So I haven’t quit SW:ToR it’s just well I decided to take a break and go play something else for a change. I still love my SW:ToR and through it all this past year I have not once let my subscription lapse at all. I just decided well it was time for a change. But there is another reason I decided to take a step back at the moment. It’s not because of the bugs, or anything. It’s about things I’ve seen in gen chat that I didn’t think to screen cap, and a recent forum topic that got deleted and yet another player made a statement that well just doesn’t sit right with me.

 

No jokes about Mental Health Issues

Today (11-25-2015) I saw a forum topic that just screamed rage and so I went to go read it because a lot of the words in it were like this ******* meaning the offensive language filter was in place. So when I read the first part of it, it was because someone was upset about the down time they were giving today. Plus I just think it was someone looking to blow off steam about the disappointments lately in the game. I can’t say I blame them in all reality because it’s like that. But one person made a quote that well just does not sit right with me. He said that the person that made the topic was most likely had mental health issues like the ones that go inside a school , or whatever and shoot it up. Now to me that struck a nerve and a big one because I have mental health issues. I have a lot of them and I live with them on a daily basis. I do not really talk about what I go through on a day to day basis because well not many would understand it, and in the gaming community, it’d be laughed about or jokes would be made about “s0-so has issues” let’s pick on them. Not to mention a lot of triggers for people with mental health issues happen around the holidays when families gather in large groups and etc. But since this person decided to bash Mental Health on that one topic I have decided to give a little look into my daily life with mental health issues I deal with on a day to day basis, and why having Raven my furbaby is a perfect help to me.

A small look into what it’s like living with issues.

Morning: Wake up, do what I have to in the bathroom, grab a cup of coffee, light a cigarette, open up a browser and start looking around. [ Now to some that would seem normal in the sense that it is perfectly normal but here is what is going on behind the scenes in my mind] -Trying to make it through another day without a little bit of crying, feeling the pain so deep inside that it’s unbearable at times. Taking deep breaths  to keep myself calm and think rationally. Pushing back all negative thoughts that surround holiday season for me. Trying to keep bad experiences from surfacing on a day to day basis. Reaching over and petting Raven who sleeps in a chair next to me while I’m at the computer. Feeling the calming effect that petting her gives me inside to make it easier  to deal with the morning so far.

Lunch Time: Wondering what it is I want to eat, or even if I want to eat. Thinking about how to make it through this part of the day as  well while playing a video game, or watching even a little bit of tv. Nothing works so go crawl in bed, cover up and go back to sleep so that I don’t have to be awake and feel the pain inside while being alone. Raven curls up next to me, and lets me pet her as I fall asleep. All the while negative thoughts plague my mind and enter my dream state, which lucky enough for me I don’t remember my dreams anymore.

Dinner Time: Hubby is home, and all I can think is “Please make him shut up, or Please make him go away as I don’t wanna listen to his dribble about his drunk friends.”, What do I want to eat, am I even hungry, and why do I feel like shit inside when I should be at my happiest.

Evening right before bed: Watch a little tv or at least try too and instead get side tracked and think about shit that has happened in the past, or thinking about what is going to happen in the next 4 minutes, then that sudden urge of sadness creeps in and destroys the entire night. Try to go to sleep only to be up half the night with a mind that just will not let me rest.

Middle of the Night: Flipping through the TV stations trying to find something boring on to put me to sleep, or getting up and going on the computer to read forums, facebook posts, twitter feeds, etc. Anything to make my mind shut up and let me go to sleep for a few hours.

Next morning: Repeat the same events all over only on a different day. So before you decide to make comments about mental health issues, just remember this small glimpse into what some of my illness is like. I won’t describe in great detail of what else I go through, just what the downside of having a mind that plagues me on a daily basis is.

Also no where in this post did I once mention bout hurting others, so before you clump all the mental illnesses into massacres of school shootings, attacks on another human being those are not mental illnesses, those are just people that want to be total annihilators of humanity. While some yes do have mental health issues, not all are mentally unstable, you will never know who is unstable and stable in terms of mental illness because let’s face it. You can be perfectly fine and just decide to blow something up. So educate yourself before you look like an asshole on a public forum where many people can read what you write.

Latest patch thoughts and other random crap

Nerfed already?

So if you have recently played SW:ToR and went through that long round of updating last night, you know that our beloved companions got hit hard with a HUGE nerf. So thanks to all the whiners out there that cried that Companions were overpowered. Because of your boohooing they nerfed them, and it was not a small nerf either. They have lost most of their zeal that I loved having them with me. So I have an image for the whiners that got what they wanted.

J101-skull-with-two-middle-fingers-black-02 That’s right, I present you with the double salute. I honestly preferred to have my companions overpowered. I did not care that they did more damage nor healing then me. I wanted them to out heal me, and have a better attack rating then me. I had watched the forums and read gen chat so much that I became numb to the “Overpowered Companion” threads, and discussions taking place. But they were warned too, bitch about something and it’ll be taken away. Some players bitched about other classes being over powered and they got hit with a huge nerf. Like the Sith Inquisitor and their Force Storm, and Jedi Consular with the Force quake. Both were heavily nerfed that well most had to learn how to use their other abilities  I always tried to use all, and set up my own rotation that I enjoyed. I don’t do raids, I don’t do endgame content, so for me to be able to play solo has well hindered a lot for me now. Now this is not a deal breaker for me, nor will it make me unsub from this game because I do love it so much. I am just disappointed that the ones that cried out for the nerf got it.

How will this hurt the new player?

Easy, a new player that started to play before the nerf had a good start with a companion being almost god like if you want to call it that, could do a lot more without legacy unlocks and etc. A new player with no high level legacy was able to play their mandatory class and planet missions with a little ease being that the start companions were doing what they were intended to do after this release was done. For an example lets take Vette on the Sith Warrior. Once acquired she was able to become a healer, tank, or just straight up DPS, before KotFE she was just a DPS that stood in the back ground doing whatever it was she did. Just shoot things, then came KotFE and a completely revamped companion system that allowed us to use all our companions again. So for the new player this was a HUGE difference to them, they get to play with a super companion and did not have to worry about them dying, or their companion dying. Now the latest patch has killed that, because what new player has the influence build up on their newly acquired companion? None that I know of unless they are an ALT of an older toon. I haven’t done to much at the moment on some of my lower level alts. But I am going to test the theory today since I have another yet Sith Warrior only this time I made an Marauder and didn’t use him because well he was super duper squishy even in good gear. At the moment he is level 39 I believe and sitting on Taris awaiting to go after the War Trust. So I’ll see how bad they are now that he doesn’t have a high level of influence, and with no adaptive gear on the companion anymore, course at the moment he is running around with HK. My preferred companion when I decide to unlock him on certain characters. Course I may try to run with Jaesa since I got her now and yes she’s a psycho again.

 

Odd outfit for Jaesa

swtor 2015-11-17 21-21-26-91 Now this has me scratching my head. I bought the Imperial slave outfit from the security key vendor on DK when I was there getting my mission from Baras, (Fat ass wanna be Darth), While talking to Jaesa aboard the ship, this is what her outfit is, but outside of the outfit it looks normal. Odd that I know, because it should show her skin, but it doesn’t. I even opted to get her a customization from the Taris vendor , but I am not sure if I plan on keeping her like this, because I am not sure about it, may just send her back to her default when you get her as a Dark side

Swtor_Jaesa_Willsaam_Dark_Customization_4 I like the tattoos and the hair, but she is just sooooooo pale. so you can image what she looks like running around in a slave outfit with white/red dye pack installed. I know I don’t have to customize her gear anymore, but still hate the traditional crap they put them in when you get them. It’s bad enough that they won’t allow us to throw different outfits on the KotFE companions we recruit, so we all run around with clones of Lana, Koth, Theron and what not. I mean if you wanted to take crap away from us, take away the outrageous prices on some of the shit you place on the Cartel Market. Give subscribers better perks and what not to keep them happy. Don’t just take away strong points in the game that make those of us that play solo and make it to where you are forcing us to “GROUP UP”,  I am sorry but I still don’t group up for a lot of things I know that can be done solo. By forcing people to group up, you are ironically saying that this is not a “Solo” type deal. A lot of people are finally coming to the realization that SW:ToR is just an MMORPG, and that doesn’t always require to be forced into grouping. For months I watched the debates on the forums and etc. to help some understand that SW:ToR is just an MMO for multiple people online. It is a community driven gave with a role playing game added to it. If you take out the PVP, the chat, the GTN and etc. You end up with a story driven game that is well Solo in style.

 

Refer a Friend bug

 

For years, from what other forum posters have posted, to even my own experience this past year. Bioware Austin has finally admitted to finding a bug in their refer a friend program so for the time being they have disabled it. Well it’s about damn time this bug is being looked into. I had a response from a ticket I created back at the end of Oct. about this bug, and they said it was working fine, and credited me 100 Cartel Coins for the long wait. I used the coins for a transfer of my instant level 60 character to another low ball server I was on, because I wanted room. So in their words I got screwed because of this bug, they claimed that they checked into the past referrals I had gotten and suggested they did not subscribed or whatever, but sorry they are still wrong because within a day of them using my link, I got the initial credit grants, then nothing afterwards because of the bug that claimed they were inactive for over 90 days.
Stillnothing This image is from an older post, but still shows the truth be told. Subscription has been inactive for over 90 days. That was just a day after they used my link, so for the time being, you can’t use anyone’s link. Now on Monday night I had checked it again and seen that 2 more people used my link so now I’m up to 15 in game referrals, but what about those in the past that used my link and got hit with that, Nothing is going to happen. They claimed it was working just fine. WRONG! I was denied the monthly grants and they suggested that I get in touch with my friends and see if they got their rewards. Funny thing is , these people who used this link are not my friends. I have no friends listed in my friends list on my names. I am a SOLO player who had links used via forum signature, and or my blog here. So really how do you contact people you do NOT know? I guess I just got the good over bent over the table and screwed without lube because of this bug that they claim was “Working as intended”, but if it was working as intended, then why did they suddenly decide to disable this feature?? I guess it was NOT working as intended. I know most used the link for the free transfer and etc. I wonder if the person that I used their referral link is still getting the coins each month I stay subbed or did they get the screw too. Oh well who knows. Hopefully they will get their shit together one day or maybe not, but in the long process of this post. I will NOT unsubscribe because of bugs, I will just find other work around that will not be considered an exploit.

Rants and Raves

About Heroics and Etc.

I have a huge rant about some of the things in SW:ToR at the moment. First off the one set of Heroics I’m gonna bitch about are the Heroic +4. I’m sure a lot will not understand this post, but some will. Okay so I was late getting into the Macrobinocular and seeker droid missions that well most have done and everything. As we all know that the majority of it can be soloed all the way until you hit the [Heroic+4] then after that you are required to group up for it. I’ve seen some be able to solo it ,and had a hard time, but most got a group together and did it. One of my characters still has that and the Opertaion on Oricon. I’d love to get the tauntaun mount, but looks like again I’ll have to wait, unless I wait for it to show up in Group finder, but I hate group finder, and some require some outrageous shit like having done it in the past, linking the achievement into gen chat, etc. Sorry but for those that are late getting to end game stuff don’t have the achievement, and well I’m slowly building up my gear on Daeqius because I have finally decided to use outfit designer. The other small rant I have as well as the Heroic+2 for the Star Fortress that I see now too.  Guess I’ll just have to keep farming for crystals so that I can get the proper gear to solo them as most are still stuck with their heads in the ass syndrome and don’t realize not everyone plays the same way.

Companions I don’t want

I hate having to grind for Qyzen, At least with Xalek if I don’t want him I can just do his quest and either kill him or say I don’t want him in my alliance. I don’t even get that option with Qyzen at all. Which to me seems unfair because really I can’t stand his voice , and I didn’t think he was all that great either. At least with getting Lokin on the Agent wasn’t half as bad as I thought it would be. I just wish they allowed us to decide whether we wanted to recruit certain companions and what not. I don’t dare go after 4x or Pierce on other alts because I refuse to do PVP. If I was into PVP heavily I could see this being a dream thing, but jumping into pvp at level 65 well that’s just murder and trolling someone that doesn’t pvp all that often. Let alone having a valor of 40, or even doing 20 unranked warzones to get them both. No thanx, I’ll be passing on these two companions on other names as well. And from what I read from Eric himself by talking with other Devs too, they have no plans on changing it at the moment, so there goes two quests that will probably sit on my alts since I have no desire what so ever to PVP. If I do, it will be on the ones that have low legacies, and no pvp titles and etc. I have no interest in PVP on a PVE server at all. I don’t care if  they try to force that all the way. If they do that, well I’ll do like most, probably drop my subscription and walk away all together.

There were bugs, bugs and more bugs

yes I know this title comes from the Sith Inquisitor Balmorra story line but if you like to complain about bugs, well they certainly gave us a good line to use. There is something at the moment that is bugging me to no end here, and that is the hype with the level 60 tokens. I don’t know if they are broke at the moment or not as I will not shell out 2,000 Cartel Coins for an instant level 60. What is bugging me is this. All those that have not finished the 8 class stories, and what not getting the unlocks for it via level up to 61. Buffs I don’t personally see the real good use for them anymore other then cosmetic’s on your character now, but if you got to the start of Chapter 3 in the main story, then you’ll have the buffs unlocked, you don’t get the legacy heroics until after finishing chapter 3 in the main stories. What I’m talking about is this. In the image below I took my level 50 Legacy, the first one I ever got to level 50, and all the unlocks for the chapters. By the end of Chapter 2 you get the buffs unlocked on each faction. Now what I’m seeing people saying via forums and reddit is they are getting the past part of the chapter 3 unlocks as well. To me this is a kick in the teeth. I worked hard, and busted my ass to get these unlocks, and for these people to take advantage of this bug well it’s a hard thing to stomach.

LegacyBuffs

 

 

People are actually cheering for each other for taking advantage of this bug. While those of us that have put the time and heartache into finishing all classes and gaining access to all unlocks for both Imperial and Republic are now being slapped in the face with this bug. I know people are gonna take advantage of things, but really do they have to brag about not having done a solid class and gaining access to the end by creating a level 60 character. Even though specifically on the website for SW:ToR it states this about level 60s

Please note that creating a level 60 character will not complete Legacy Achievements for that class, and the class storyline of that character will not be available to you.
If you’re downloading the game for the first time and plan to start at level 60 you will need to allow the full game download to complete before hitting Play.

And yet because of their flaw with this, people are doing just that, creating a level 60 character and getting those Legacy Achievements for it. I have not seen a word edge wise about what they intend to do with those taking advantage of these bugs and what not. But I don’t expect much because let’s face it, the gaming industry is not without said bugs and exploits as one can wish for. I mean if you take advantage of something like a Legacy Achievement then something should happen, but it’s not, so it’s totally worthless in my eyes. People are gonna take advantage of everything they can in hopes they do get away with it. I mean lets face it. Sometimes something as simple as an achievement gets overlooked. But who knows with Bioware Austin.

 

Level Sync

Now you’ll hear a lot of negativity about level sync and all the complainers well doing what they do best. Now me on the other hand, I have a few characters that I did not level up 60 during the Epic XP Boost we had over the summer. I’m not complaining about that because well Real life happens, and takes time away from the game and etc., so I decided this past week to take my level 30 something trooper into the game. Well as of last night he was level 47, and that was before getting off Quesh. I breezed through Hoth with no issues even though I was sync to I believe level 42, now I’ll be heading off to Belsavis and will be level synced yet again and I won’t complain about it, because even being a higher level I’m doing really well course now I have to use a different companion as Aric Jorgan is unavailable for the time being. To be level 47 and not even anywhere near the end of Chapter 3 in the trooper story is just amazing. I’ll have to take a screenies of him once I’m done messing with his gear. But yeah anyone that says Level sync sucks, well just needs to have their head examined because this is the first time I’m welcoming level sync. Over in Guild Wars 2 their idea of level sync is different, you don’t get a high amount of XP when killing mobs and etc. They just tone you down, at least with Bioware Austin, they level sync you, and give you huge amounts of XP for completing a class mission or even the planetary arcs. So yeah I welcome level sync, if anything I think they mostly did it to stop us from being able to solo some of the World Bosses, and decided that since some wanted the XP boost they found a way to implement it into the game and see if it would work and I believe it is doing just as it is intended. So I welcome level sync if it’s going to make for an easier way to level up. Now while some are still using the infamous “Learn to Play” mentality they don’t realize that with the instant level 60s most aren’t willing to learn how to play. They see the words instant 60 and just jump right into it without realizing that there is a wonderful back story to their characters they have chosen. Now while some classes are just a dull drag and mundane to go through some have opted to just jump into the game and learn as they go. While this has both good and bad points. Its our job as a community to help the new comers, minus the ones that demand everything be handed to them. How to play. But alias our community is a mixed one, with a lot of negativity and with some that just don’t want to help out all the way around. To each their own I guess.

 

Summary of it all

It’s like this, we know there will be bugs and etc. in a game like this, but there comes a time when you can not accept the braggers about it. It makes those of us that have worked hard for theses achievements to see someone make an instant character level and get it, well it’s a slap in the face, kick in the teeth, or how ever you want to word it. Grinding to get specific gear should not be in question either. Most need to realize that not everyone levels and plays the same way, so a little understanding is well just that, understanding. Sadly most just want to do fast runs, and make others feel uncomfortable playing a certain way because it’s not their way of play style. So the next time one feels the need to put someone down, then ask them, “Why do you solo when you can group up?”, it’s because some in our community want certain things out of others that is well hindering some from the idea of grouping up . Think before you  type, and you’ll find a way into helping someone learn how to play the game. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful Friday/Weekend!!!

The odd Post of the week

Movie Pun of the year!

Now we all have movies that well if they make it into a video game as a pun, well it’s just saying something is going right with a video game. I don’t normally spot puns about movies so fast unlike I did with this one. By now most have probably dived into Knights of  the Fallen Empire and if not, well I’m sure you’ll understand this little spoiler if you want to call it that.

swtor 2015-11-06 20-48-44-37 I noticed this the first run through on KotFE and fell out of my chair laughing so hard at it, because it was the first time a movie I enjoyed a lot showed up in a pun in a video game. My husband knew exactly what was going on when he heard it too and laughed so hard we had tears streaming down our face because it was just the way HK-55 had said it. I don’t normally find movie title puns funny, but well I’m a huge fan of Ice Cube, and loved all his movies he’s done so far from Friday all the way up to Ride Along. Sometimes you just have to step back and watching something as messed up as that and get a good laugh going. I also know that there is a TV Show named Are we there yet as well, but well here is the trailer in-case you haven’t seen the movie “Are We There Yet?”

Random Ramblings

Now this week I haven’t really done much inside SW:ToR all because I was not feeling all that hot, and plus Hubby and I have been having issues, his issue, come home and drop bad news into my lap to piss me off enough that I just quit playing for the night. I swear at times I’d love to choke him, or just use duct tape on his mouth and make him shut up for a good 48 hours. Before it’s said, yes I have an evil streak in me. Despite having dropped a whole 1.2 million in credits for Domicolt’s Ceremonial Mystic Armor set and what not. I’ve been trying to save up my credits yet again so that now I can finally work on getting the Tatooine strong hold that I want so badly.

Just something about this one that I just truly love. Probably because it’s a permanent sunset going on or sunrise whichever you prefer. On my one character I have I believe 1.5 million credits sitting there, Domicolt also have over 1.5 million credits as well, and Ericzak is sitting at 500,000 credits at the moment. I’m finding it easier to go into the expansion and make a mad killing with credits with just killing everything in sight. Domicolt has that much because I sold some decorations like the Imperial and Republic Flags you get in the beginning when you get a new strong hold. Plus not to mention that I tend to let the basic stuff sit in my legacy storage until it’s enough to just go ahead and sale them either on the GTN or to a vendor for certain amount of credits, not to mention that when BioWare dropped the droid parts, my older names have a huge stack of droid parts I can just sale now to a vendor and be done with it. So fart I believe I’ve gotten close to like 200k just selling it to a vendor in my stronghold. My Kaas Apartment strong hold is completely unlocked and I believe sitting at or near to 100% completion. I don’t really use the Republic one all that much because I’m just not a fan, I travel to it when I make a new character and get the decorations to throw into the legacy storage and sale them at a later date. Daeqius has some credits too, but he was the one I used to buy the Ceremonial Mystic Set. I haven’t found many armor sets that I want, so therefore it’s easier for me to save my credits now, plus I don’t have many mounts I want, I still want a Tauntaun mount, but of the two ways I know to get it, well are both time and credit consuming. One is on the GTN and the other is using Dulfy’s Tauntaun guide and do it the hard way, but either way it’s time consuming and a pain in my ass all the way around. I guess now with level sync it will be more of a challenge to get one, course I could just say piss on it, and buy the one off the Cartel Market for I believe is 3,000 Coins, but I don’t ever put that much money into the game, and then again if Customer service would fix my damn referral problem. I could save up for it, I’ve had 13 in game referrals and do not get credit for it still. This has been going on since late July. Every so often I’ll get a 100 Coin grant but other than that, NOTHING, and it’s starting to piss me off.

Stillnothing As you can see in the image I’ve had more people use my link and instead of nothing I get the yellow box now. Yes to save on privacy I’ve blanked out the names, and etc. But this is becoming a troublesome issue for most of us in SW:ToR. We get people to use our link, how they get mine is well odd unless they are pulling it off the blog, or off my signature in SW:ToR Forums which I don’t really post there all that often, but I am thankful for those that keep trying. At least they get the bundles and unlocks along with the character transfer. I’ve only used one link since last year, and I haven’t let my sub lapse once , so hopefully the person I’m using is still getting their 100 coins a month. If not , well BioWare needs to fix this. I’m losing out on roughly about 1300 coins a month. I could have had my mount by now but NOOOOOOO they keep fucking around. (Sorry for language ) but this pisses me off to no extent.

 

Birthdays & Holidays

Course now this is the time of year again that most love, me I can take it or leave it. By that I mean the sudden mad dashes for holidays and of course for those of us born this time of the year for our birthdays as well. Everyone in my life knows I don’t really celebrate my birthday all that much because well let’s face it ,being born around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and etc. well kind of dampens the gift parade because for some if they are around Thanksgiving  that is great, because along with the infamous turkey day, they get presents, then again if you’re born closer to Christmas, well good luck there. I have a birthday coming up next month. December 15th to be exact. I will be 38 years old and still get asked “What do you want for your birthday?” , I know what I want this year, but I can believe I won’t get it. I’ve told everyone to go to our local walmart or even amazon.com and get me a cartel coin card for SWTOR or even a game time card, or a bundle pack that includes both. I’m not asking for much, but I know I won’t see it, because that is just the way it goes. Instead I’ll get a card with $20.00 in it, and it won’t last because I’ll need to spend it on something for the apartment, dog, or whatever necessity comes up at the time. As a kid I loved my birthday’s now as an adult it’s like “Oh shit, another one of them is coming again.” I did not do the typical milestones either. No sweet 16 , nothing for when I turned 18 or 21. Then again most have a hard time grasping too that I have a 19 year old and a soon to be 21 year old (May) daughters and I’m only going to be 38 years old. I had kids young, and that is another story for another time maybe and on my other blog about Real life issues.  I was lucky to have my two daughters because now I can’t have anymore. Would I have loved another child? Possibly but I’m not all that hype on the whole thing now, course I’m afraid if I did have a child, they would have a pissed off attitude, oh wait, my youngest did have that attitude, now I’m not so sure because of past circumstances that changed their life, and mine for good. So for some the holidays are a joyous time of the year, for me they bring back memories I wish I didn’t have so if I fall silent in blog posts and what not. It’s not because I’ve given up, it’s just this time of the year I have a lot on my mind and etc. Anyways thanks for reading ,and have a wonderful gaming weekend.
