Surprising amount of Chest Capture matches today (especially since activity was low during the later half of the session). Gettin' better at CC as a result. Ended up in a few Manhunt matches since voters be stupid, and encountered a rather annoyin' problem: lag. My connection was laggin' again. ._.
As I said, I was gonna miss half my stuns due to mistimed Mutes. And I did. My team was actually losin' to the other two scrubs in the first round (t'was 2v2, nobody else ever joined strangely). Considerin' I had a score of 10,000+ last match, which was also Manhunt as well as bein' a 4v2 (with me on the 2 player team), this irked me somethin' good. From godlike to scrublike in one match.
The one lv. 24 that was givin' me all this trouble in the lag was pretty damn good for such a low level admittedly. Ya usually don't see anyone throwin' their smoke to get kills until they've prestiged, not that it's more effective than simply walkin' up to a target and smokin'.
Finally back to playin' Nier after a three month break. And I'm already sick'a the Junk Heap... Only game I know of that has ya complete an area a hundred times over for a ton of different side quests. Also, item drop rates are trollin' me. It can take an entire hour in the Heap to find a single Fluorite (certainly took me that long on multiple occasions). Randomly got three in a single room. I don't need 'em at this point of the game, and I'm rich enough as is from the literally thousands of common drops I've sold from the Heap. Instead of gettin' the Titanium Alloys I'm lookin' for, I instead received five Damascus Steel. Said steel is more rare I believe, and is completely useless unless ya buy DLC... .____.
RNG be trollin'... ... ...
... Is it?
Finally got to beatin' Nier, viewed the first ending. Won't be long 'till I get 'em all. I've also decided against 100%ing the game; not that I can anyways due to a glitched quest, but I'll make no attempts to 100% it in the future either. The game is 15% main story, 80% fetch quests and 5% not-incredibly-boring side quests. The single truly great aspect of the game is only it's OST (which is amazing, speakin' of). Good game, but no better than good. As a result, it's the worst game I've played in awhile.
Tried hard mode servers on Killing Floor, big mistake! The players are all morons that look like they just came in from Normal or Beginner because they have level 6 perks. The only perk levels I seen was 5+ medics, Sharpshooters, Demolitions and Support specs. Of course I wasn't much better wandering around with Level 4 Commando which is possibly the 2nd worst perk damage wise. My friend was using his Level 6 sharpshooter but at least he used his level 4 Zerker the odd time
There was a CoD kid in the game trying to No-scope Scrakes and Fleshpounds in the head with the M99 and it resulted in me dying at one point /facepalm
Even in the middle of the day, no Chest Capture or Escort lobbies... Had to go Manhunt. ._. This one 10+ prestige player I've encountered 'least twice a month over the past half-year showed his face again. I wouldn't be surprised if he thought we were rivals by now, we can't escape each other. First time we played Escort however, after an odd vote changed the mode from Manhunt to Escort. It was terribly apparent he wasn't very experienced in Escort, so instead of puttin' up a fight like normal in Manhunt, I dominated 'em. I don't blame 'em for leaving after the third session in a row was gonna be Escort. Playin' modes you're awful at just 'cause you don't wanna leave a lobby sucks (I'm lookin' at you, Artifact Assault... blehhhhhh).
In fact, everyone left after he did, so I just switched to RDR. No one was playin' Stronghold though... Quite the boring matches. Teams never had more than five each. Undead Overrun had nothin' but n00bs, Advanced Co-op was even more dead than Stronghold, and I wasn't really in the mood for FFA games for once; and never am I in the mood for Gang matches.
Y SO MUCH INACTIVITY IN FAVORITE GAMES?! Dx It's ****in' Saturday!
Playing as the civilian class is surprisingly effective if you sneak around in control point maps. More so if you are going up against tunnel vision snipers. I was literally jumping in front of his scope and he didn't seem to notice me. I've gotta try that more often.
12 hour Killing Floor session last night, wasn't bad but wasn't that great either for the stupid amount of time wasted. Although I got Berzerker to level 4 and Sharpshooter to level 6 it still didn't really feel worth it, especially when you have to carry every single game presented to you. Maybe Normal servers aren't the place to be and I should up the Ante to maybe Hard or even Suicidal.
