Bran's PS4 Adventures (Plateau)

I think I've basically hit it. You know it. The point where you feel your skill has hit its peak and you don't see any noticeable improvement. It's pretty frustrating.

Here's my main Guru stat page on PS4.

(IF you're interested) Check out game details of recent matches.

If you delve into the numbers, the general theme is that, with this last set of games last night, I've been basically carried by GameGeekFan and bad_juju40 (newbiemj here on SF). Even when I'm an offensive god that is supposed to carry, it's just not happening that much.

Excuse or not in some cases, I know some of my biggest issues:
  • I will never be that good with PS4 controls. I still struggle with instinct with regard to the buttons (shoulder buttons are absolutely not the natural controls I'm familir with on my keypad), and my aim is often trash.

  • I get tired of playing the same gods over and over...so I play gods that I'm okay with on PC, but it's not the same. No way in Hel I can combo stance switch with her

Yes, this is what it's come to...

(as I'm getting to lane in a Conquest match)

Zilby: "I guess Watcher's Gift is still fine to get."

GGF: "Yep."

Zilby: "Watcher's, shoes, potions."

Me: "Watcher's, Lono's Mask, and potions."

Zilby: "Watcher's, WHAT, and potions?"

Me (slowly): "Lono's Mask."

Zilby: "I...literally can't afford that."

Also, side note, some other "fun" things we're not doing again:
And one that's always fun:

The Old Gang

Conquest
Well, the old gang was able to get back together for a night. The old gang was rusty.

GGF and Taco have played regularly. However, Zilby and Prism haven't played much over the past couple of months. I've been splitting my time with a variety of other games, and have only played 10 PC matches over the past 2 weeks, none of them being Conquest. Excuses, though.

This was a fun game. Our lineup was:
We were against Loki, Athena, Hades, Geb, and Rama.

Initial thought was to sort of talk about gameplay, builds and whatnot, but with a full group of 5, we got sidetracked. Oops. I've now added comments here about thoughts on all builds.

E3 2017 - Screw the Public

E3
Did my annual E3 visit yesterday...my standard protocol from the past few years has been to meet up with friends, drive to LA Convention Center, spend the day at E3, go to EightyTwo for drinks and retro gaming, then drive home exhausted.

Honestly, E3 this year was a bit of a bummer. They finally reopened the show to the (willing to pay) public, which created a significant (read: vastly annoying) influx of fresh (and not so fresh) bodies to crowd the lanes create a show of excitement for the industry. This turned decently common swag (not as high quality as the disgusting opulence shown at E3 in its heyday 10+ years ago) into hard-to-find, generally-lower-quality swag. Not that I'm one to go searching everywhere for the stuff...some of it's cool, but I don't really need most of it, and I don't go selling everything I get on eBay. (Some people make a killing, selling to nerdy suckers...no offense meant, and apologies made if this an accurate descriptor of your habits and you don't like …

This blog will be updated occasionally over the next couple of days as I travel for work.

12:50pm (Central), Dallas TX (DFW) Airport.

Minor layover, coworker has an American Airlines Admirals Club membership. Can't say the view is really any better, but I got a Crown & 7 out of it =)

On my way to Birmingham, Alabama, to visit one of my company's new customers. Really, I'm going for a very specific reason that... Technically... Is unrelated to the actual business, but I'll get into that later. And no, it's not anything bad.

Anyway, will update this post with further info as it develops.

Update 7:15pm, Birmingham (The Collins Bar)

Cool place. They don't have a mixed drink menu. Says:


Got some kind of bourbon bitters lemon thing. Tasty.

Also some old school historic churches for scenery...


I got maybe 2 hours of sleep last night. I'm not used to that and my body is really mad at me. When I know I need to get up early (3:30am) to catch a flight, my mind freaks out and I wake up …
