So I followed up my last Reddit post with this one. Just posted, so we'll see how it's taken. I really, really would love to see some actual Hi-Rez response...would really like to hear their response and see if they actually do listen, whether or not they take the advice.

I posted a few days ago about trying to keep things in perspective, and gave some kudos overall to the game we love (or hate to love, or are starting to hate, or whatever) and the development team behind it. (Or perhaps it wasn't so much kudos, but a plea for people to temper their rage)

I'm not a Hi-Rez homer. There are plenty of things I wish were different. But I'm also not going to scream because the game is unavailable for a day, or because I can't play Zhong/Thana until next patch (hey people, there are almost 100 other gods I can choose). I get people's frustrations. They're legitimate, but for some, I feel the intensity of their reactions are not.

What I'd said ha…

r/SMITE Post (Perspective)

Had just been seeing so much negativity and SMITE / HR Reddit, but we're seeing it here too, with comments and blogs and whatnot. So I thought I'd write something. I get more views on Reddit, but Boog asked for it here.

Hi everyone,

If you know me at all, it's likely for my Overarching Conquest Guide. I'm mostly a lurker on r/SMITE.

There just seems to be a lot of negative talk and generalized bashing of Hi-Rez and SMITE lately, and thought I'd put in my thoughts. Although these things have been said before, a reminder of maintaining perspective can be helpful. TL;DR for some (most maybe), but for others, I appreciate your attention and time.


Online games go through fluctuations, right? There are old games that retain a solid player base, but new games always threaten to pull people away. Movement and change is expected.

Steam Charts tells a reasonable story. Definitely on a slight downtrend as of the last couple of…

Side Project - Bartop Arcade

So this is my side project. I've slowly gathered all the necessary components over the last couple of years. Mostly received as presents for b-day/X-mas, so I haven't had to pay for all that much.

Most components were kits...the joystick/button combo, the speakers and amp (you can see that at the top), the precut particle board, etc. I bought replacement circle restrictor gates (I hate the square ones that are standard, cuz I want to do hadoukens dammit).

It's obviously not completed, but it's a few hours away from being done. Have a variety of platforms...Arcade (MAME), Neo-Geo, Atari 2600, Colecovision, NES, Turbografx, Sega Master System, SNES, Genesis, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, N64.

Oh and that's Niko checking it out.

*edit* Here are the (basically) finished pics. All graphics are applied, and there's additional stuff on the inside and back that weren't done before.

Conquest  |  iSux  |  Ranked
Yes, I'm actually back at it after the 5.7 ranked soft reset. Logged on last night, wife was super tired from restless sleep the night before so I knew I had a good chunk of game time XD

Warmed up with a couple of casual matches. Went 9/2/15 w/ Fenrir in an Assault game, where I accidentally auto-ran off the platform as we got into game, so started with 0 items...and got 4 kills before I died and was able to load up. Then went 7/2/19 w/ Bacchus in an Arena match that came down to the wire (3 tickets to 0). Was feeling pretty good after those matches.

Then DV-8 had finished up a ranked game, and so we partnered up for 3 ranked games.

Game 1 (Ganesha Support, Loss)

This game, DV-8 decided to troll with a spicy Ah Puch mid pick. It actually worked pretty well for him (6/4/2, the only positive K/D on our team), and he would have done better with better teammates =(

I had Rama as an ADC. I'd given him the option of either ADC or Support. First few minutes were okay..…

conquest  |  Finally  |  iSux  |  ranked

I probably should have at least finished up my ranked qualifiers in 3 wins and 2 losses, it was automatically better than the showing I had this season...

Final qualifier score: 2-8. And the grand prize ranking?


Yup, yours truly was placed in the absolute lowest rank. And I even brought DV-8 out of Gold while doing so.

Now, I can't say I'm a good player...but damn if most of the games felt really lopsided, and not necessarily because of me.

In this one, I warned them about me playing jungle, but I ended up being Jungle anyway! LOL...I do have to say, Ratatoskr is tons of fun. In any case, our Sobek ragequit very early in the game after he died twice...left us all obviously at a disadvantage, so we were just holding for a short while and trying to stalemate...didn't come back, died some, and we ended up forfeiting because it was an obvious lost cause.

There was one where we were winning, DV-8 was Hachi-ing it up, and then he dropped...we held for anoth…
