A Secondary Goal (God Mastery)

GodMastery  |  Noob
Alongside my recent goal to get through Ranked Conquest qualifiers for the first time, I developed a secondary target...get all gods to Mastery I.

Why? Well, little did I know that...apparently...I cannot choose gods in Ranked play that I haven't gotten to at least Mastery I. Oops. Not that I've had that problem as of yet. But the thing is, at least at some point, someone might ask me to secure a god for them if they're available. If I don't have that god mastered, then that would technically suck. Yes, in this case, "suck" is a technical term; one that applies very appropriately to me.

Hence the new goal. There are some gods that just haven't clicked for me before this point, and a few that I haven't touched at all for lack of interest or other reasons. As of right now, I've got 72 gods mastered...

By the way, I think they need to make a new term, specifically for me: "Gods-He-Has-Played-Enough-To-Get-50-Worshippers." What? You don't like it? Why??? It doesn't "flow..." Whatev

Game 2

Link to the game stats is here.

In my second Ranked Conquest game ever, I got to experience a rage-quitter ( Kali on the enemy team). My team was pretty darn cool...I didn't do well, but they were okay with that.

Here was how bans/picks went:

Banning & Picking

With an enemy Kali, Ullr, and Erlang Shen, I made sure this time to choose a build style that actually fit Witchblade...went with the Transcendence build, with a Bluestone Pendant and Bumba's Mask start. Planned to get Witchblade after Trans, in place of Asi. The game never got that far. …

Link to the game stats is here.

Welp. I played my very first Ranked Conquest game ever. Honestly could have gone a lot worse, but boy did I feel a lot more pressure than normal. Didn't play very well, but I sort of expected that.

Only one other was actively talking/using the new in-game voice chat. And he was complaining (not unjustified I'm sure) a lot. He was our best player ( Ao Kuang), and without him, we definitely would have lost. Other than 2 others that were also playing qualifying matches, the spread of players consisted mostly of Silver division.

Keep in mind, the entire ranked experience was new to me, with the banning and all.

Here was how it went:

This was a fun night...Zilby came back to play with us for a bit. In addition, we welcomed 2 SF members to the clan...Carve (boogiebass) and Vocoder (DV-8). After some earlier games (a couple of failed Custom matches and a solid Corrupted Arena match), Carve went to play with his friend, so we got into a Conquest match (unusual for us these days).

Our roster:
After what felt (to me) like a slightly rough first 5 minutes (at around 4:20, the fun started, with Taco rotating to our lane but 2 of theirs rotating in also), things started looking up for us.

I still find myself wandering without purpose too much, and not dropping enough wards. Will probably continue to happen unless I play Conquest more. Oh well.

Solid games from everyone, though the competition was questionable...I outdamaged the enemy Hel, Ravana, and Ganesha, and was within 500 damage of outdamaging their Ap

Happiness, Vol 1.: A Freya Rant

Fatalis  |  Freya  |  Nerf  |  Rant
Right now, I just straight up do NOT suggest even touching Freya. I'm not even going to make an effort to play her until she's fixed.

That's maybe an overreaction, depending on who you ask, but to me, Fatalis was a 100% core item on her. The only other god where it is 100% core is Kali (oh and sure, Bakasura too, happy Bernardo?). But for Kali, she got an arguably BETTER version of Fatalis in Hastened Katana...yes, it loses a bit of early function from its 10 pen that was taken away, but it added 25 physical power, went back DOWN in price, and so...yay for Kali?

But see, Kali has some really nice things going for her. Besides sticking to enemies with the new Hastened Katana, she has:
  • A leap / escape...she can jump over walls or use it to catch up to fleeing enemies. Freya does not have a movement ability.

  • A stun, after which Kali can continue slashing away. Freya can interrupt with Banish, a smaller AOE but at distance, BUT she can't damage them while they're hanging up
