Hey everyone, I hope y'all are having a great day! I know I am just planning on kicking back and relaxing today! I really don't have too much on my mind today, but I came across this screenshot from a match I played earlier in the day. If you cannot tell by the image above, that is a mill rogue and that poor paladin did not fair so well against this deck.
If you are new to these types of games, a mill deck is simply a deck that attempts to force your opponent to run out of cards. This is accomplished in a whole lot of ways and when it all comes together, well that's when the magic happens!
So yesterday I touched on the fact that I am wanting to really dedicate myself to working on ranking up in Hearthstone. As such, you will probably see a lot more posts in the near future where I talk about the different decks I am experimenting with and how those decks are working out. While I would love to think that I am the absolute end-all, be-all of Hearthstone, I am nowhere near that. As a matter of fact the game even informed me of it when the new month started. It very clearly stated that I was only better than 50% of the community, which means that I have a lot of work to put in if I ever hope to get my orange gem!
Now I do not want to dedicate all of my time to Hearthstone, but the honest truth is that it is really the only game I am playing with any sort of consistency. I love WoW and hope to one day get to focus some more time on it, but it just seems like I just do not have the time necessary to really be as good as I like to be. I am not someone who can just sit down at a computer and watch my pixilated butt run around a lake or what not. If I commit to something, then I like to give it everything that I have. As of late, about the only thing I really have been able to do, is log in and check my mail and relist my auctions. Now I suppose that is not all bad, since I am acquiring a nice little bit of change, but eventually my goal is to return to doing what I love the most... standing in the back of a group of adventurers and healing my socks off!
Outside the realm of gaming, I am in the process of working on getting back into the comic scene. As a kid, I grew up escaping into the world of Marvel's X-men and Spider-man. I always dreamed that one day I would have my own comic book store. Well, I have yet to obtain that dream, but in the near future I hope to start taking steps towards it. I am pretty sure that you will certainly get a chance to hear more about this in the future. As for the present, I think it is time for me to let you all go. Thanks for stopping by and listening to the inner workings of mind. See you next time!
I cannot believe that we are almost have way through May! I hope you all had a great weekend celebrating Mother's Day. I had a great weekend and even managed to get a little bit of Hearthstone in! Although I am not sure if the Shaman felt the same way? Oh well!
So I realize that things have been really, really quiet around here lately, and I truly do apologize for that; however, I have a lot of things that I am working on in my spare time and so I ask that you all just be patient with me and stick around!
As far as gaming goes, I haven't been doing too much. I wrapped up the Blackrock Mountain expansion in Hearthstone, save for the heroic bosses. I just lose interest in those. I have spent a lot of time just playing random games though, and I believe I am going to put a focus on actually playing ranked more seriously. My rank play usually consists of running to twenty the first of every month and then waiting to collect my new pretty card back... which I never use. Yeah, not exactly legendary game play, right?
Well, I am planning to change that and I have already started working on it. Last night I sat down for around two hours and played a few matches. I am really trying to go with my own decks versus running out and checking different sites for the "it" decks, but I am also very serious about wanting to push at achieving Legendary rank... so I might have to set my principles to the side, in favor of getting that orange little gem up there under my name. Time will tell! Right now, I am running a lock deck that has done me well. It is focused on the ability to have minions on the board regardless of what the opposing player does. It did get rolled recently though by a very good zoolock and then a demon lock. Kind of bruised my pride some, but I am going to stick with the deck for this month and then work on switching some things around.
I am actually debating on streaming some of the game-play, but I hate to put people through that misery with my poor system. Maybe it is time to finally build the new computer? We shall see! Well, I think that is going to do it for today!
