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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
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.
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,
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
