Getting familiar with Wildstar

After not really playing that much during the free first month (kind of stupid, but I really didn’t feel like gaming so much x_x), I decided to buy another month of game time and give it a more serious try this time. And it’s a whole lot more fun! Might have something to do that I switched factions and characters, because being on the Dominion side just made me feel sick sometimes. Not really what I want from playing a game. ._.

The other reason probably is that I started off as a Mechari in the beginning, the race I was most interested in when looking at the available options for the first time and also why I chose that faction at first. Normally I’m never someone to choose the bad side because it’s just not my nature. Once again it proves that I don’t feel at home there.

The awesome thing about the  Mechari is their insect-like look that somewhat reminds me of the Qiraji in World of Warcraft – that’s also the reason why my Mechari got the name Zarivess (if other signs than letters were allowed in naming, she would have been Zari’vess). But the downside of this race is that I absolutely hate their feet and the way they move – their running animation looks somewhat derpy and comical. Since it’s really important for me to feel ‘in tune’ with a character, that kind of ruined the whole experience for me. So I let it slide and didn’t really get to know much of the game before the first month of game time expired.

For the new start, I decided to let Zarivess go.

She’s awesome and I love that green thing on her head, but something else was needed to keep me interested, and I decided to give the opposing faction a try – the Exiles.

So now I’m off to a great new start – new character, new race, new class. And I’m having a lot of fun already! 🙂

Riot, please!

Playing League of Legends hasn’t been that interesting to me lately – after all a match in Summoners Rift takes rather long, you can’t leave if something is up or you need a break, and it’s especially exhausting with 4 random people in your team. You never know how toxic at least one of them will behave, and more often than not that player is pretty bad as well.

The other point is that I would love to play ranked – but I only want to play my one favourite role. I’m just bad at anything other than support, not because I can’t do it, but because I tend to die for my teammates and help others more than getting kills myself. For that reason I started to specialize in being the support very early and just don’t have enough champions and the right runes to play the other roles properly, ot to mention barely any experience.

My biggest hope now is the introduction of the Team Builder queue in ranked as well, even though I’m not sure how they’d go about that with banning champions and all that stuff. But as it is I’m just too afraid of being shoved into a place I’m not comfortable playing in and being a burden to my teammates, so I end up not playing at all. Except an ARAM now and then, for the first win of the day bonus.

Not really exciting.. but in general there hasn’t been too much gaming on my part anyway.
