Clan Battlezzz

I couldn't even drum up the motivation to do Clan Battles today. I might just be growing out of it. It's actually more fun for me at tier 8 than tier 10, so it's not the current season that's bothering me, necessarily. Since there's nothing to add there I'll leave it...

In No Shape for PvP

Sundays, I don't even know anymore. I had to skip Clan Battles again. This time it was a sneezing fit that lasted for about three hours. I'm not entirely sure I'm past it yet, but either way I'm down for the count. I'm in no shape for any kind of PvP today.

Clan Battles 9/14

It went well enough, though I was out for the last two matches getting dinner. I don't remember if we were up or down on wins overall, but it was definitely 1 or 2 games in either direction. I vaguely remember having a couple of games worth recording before 11.9, so...

Another Skip

I planned to come in later than normal for Clan Battles, but I just don't have the energy for pvp today. I'll see how I'm feeling on Wednesday, but right now I'm trying to get 'real life' affairs in order and there are only a few things I can do to balance that kind...

First Runs 11.8

I wound up skipping clan battles today, for a variety of reasons, but I did get to test out the updated operations this afternoon. Finally. Finally, I've got some incentive to play the game outside of clan battles. I even got a few replays worth recording toward the...

Last Run 11.7

I had one last run in the old style of operations in Maya earlier today. They're taking away the 5 star format starting tomorrow so I wanted to get one last run in. It went well enough so I recorded it afterward, too. I won't spend too much time on it tomorrow but I...

“I prefer the high ground.”

by | Oct 6, 2021 | WoWs

“Because I can see everything … everything that shall be destroyed ….”

Today was really not my day. I had plans but my mortal coil had plans of its own and we squared off first thing in the morning. You can probably guess who came out on top. Even though I was too out of it to write much, I can still work a mouse just fine.


I was pretty upset right before this happened. Randoms in World of Warships are inherently frustrating for me at this point. Add to that frustration my light headedness, the preaching to the choir about how annoying randoms are, and my mouse software going on the fritz right at the start of the match … and I was ready to call the game for the reds. I had no idea that the problem wasn’t going to last more than a minute or so, nor did I know the enemy team were going to do some of the things they did. Sometimes I forget that Randoms isn’t about playing well, it’s about making fewer mistakes than the other team. Why did I attack a Kitakaze in smoke with ap dive bombers? Because that angry smoke cloud shooting at my allies needed to learn some manners. That’s why.

(His health was really low because I attacked him before; I was just finishing the job.)

This Wednesday was a total wash on productivity, but I’ll always have Graf Zeppelin and her unquenchable wrath.

By the way, did you notice the video quality there? I know I never bothered uploading my OBS clips before–the quality just wasn’t consistently good enough yet. Well, it turns out I had an OBS alternative preinstalled on my machine. I knew NVidia could help with recording, but for a whole bunch of reasons that kind of just clumped together into a ‘bad impression,’ I didn’t bother giving it a thorough look at first. It was only when I started making a list of potential replacements that I learned NVidia had a better, faster overall setup. I figured I would test it myself right then and there. That’s how yesterday went. I think I have a reliable method for getting clips now.

Begin (2024)

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
