Ok, guess who's back, back again, Bruv is back tell a friend. Well tah dah, like magic (or herpes) I appear when not expected or even not wanted to be fair. Even so, here I am and waving. So Beta world map has undergone some serious changes, with more in the pipeline, it's a full time job just working out the new tweaks now, let alone playing the normal game. Some are glorious, the transit time is now so much more quicker, I now get no more weird looks from the family as I no longer need to shout at it to hurry my primarch along, or try to push it with a finger to get it there quicker, also perches have been taken away along with bestiarys. That was a solid pain in the ass for sure, but now they are gone, goodbye non needed crap. But gold seems to have dropped unless you fancy mining 12ks all night and as we now have a Russian landlord, it's best to keep up with rent ;)
So SGP has been and gone, what a weekend, drunken fun, great bands, lots of nudity, epic paint fight and a mass mud wrestling showdown, even managed to meet a fellow Hatter there, before I almost killed her with an exploding stove, the lid of a gas canister caught her on the leg, causing instant swelling and immediate pain, thankfully after an agonising morning for her and a trip to A&E, the X-ray came back as bruising, so after a cheeky McDonalds we went back to the music festival, crutches an all to wade in the mud.
So after a lot of preparation time, we have seen so many teams crumble when ascending as they are not prepared, some of our players finding the pressure of life a bit too much to carry on at a pace we know will hit us soon so a few goodbyes to long term players but Sapphire is happening fast and soon, the team is excited, the officers poised like cobras, we will hit it running come league switch, hoping the momentum we have stored will make us thrive and not just survive. So I'd like to thank my team for the patience and dedication but it's all paid off and will be worth it.
So Mega coin? Brilliant if you're super Mario, not a disgruntled Dragon Lord. So the meeting in PG towers must have been seen through rose tinted glasses as the smoke got thicker and the ideas flowed out. Right, let's do away with commonly found amulets to boost points, let's do away with a super effective bonus bar (a personal favourite of mine as it promoted game play and hard won bonus points) and replace it with an overly expensive piece of digital crap that only them on illegal substances or a melting credit card would ever buy. Yeah high fives all round, but let's keep the peasants happy by given them one to blind them in our stupidity. Took all the fun out the event too, you could grind away all night, getting flags (and shockingly bad points too btw) only for someone to drop a Mega coin and obliterate your graft by someone with more money then sense, they don't even have to learn to fly their dragons now, just type in the pin code. Pointless manoeuvre and shocking tekkers PG, hold your head in shame.
Fellow Hatter and Blogger BlazingXSeraph has set up his own FB page (linked below) and has been broadcasting a web show, with only the second show in I got to appear in it and we chatted about WD, the good, the bad and the damn right ugly. A super informative show, highlighting all what is going on around the WD world with some highly talented guests planned soon. It was great fun talking and seeing someone who you have only conversed with in text before. He is getting a good following too, with the way he handles it, I'm sure it will be very popular in the weeks to come, just hope the new found fame doesn't go to his head and still will enjoy our company in game :)
Talking of meeting Fellow MadHatters, I'm currently in the process of setting up next years one and will take place next may I'm informed and will be at the London 2018 Comic con. What a place for a bunch of nerds, geeks and fanatics to meet and get very drunk at for a couple of days. Only time will tell if I'm there I'm on my own lol.
Any way, that's all folks. Cya when you're older
