News bulletin:

I fucking hate El Paso and pretty much everyone in the city.

I’m sad to being going back home, but things happen and life is full of unexpected twists. I am excited to have my computer back though, because I really want to level and re-learn my assassin in both Deception and Madness specs. I enjoy both, so it’ll be fun to learn them again.

I just wish things had happened differently, but I harbor no ill-will about it all. Things happen, we make do with what we are given and keep moving forwards. And I love life and the people in it.

I love Azir. His kit is fun and I love his “fuck you Lee Sin” ult. But I love him most for his voice. Roy Mustang in bird man form. Yes, I’m a little gay for Travis Willingham’s voice. Okay, a lot gay.

Hmmm. I’m going to play my Assassin some on SWTOR and see if I can get back into the swing of it. Why am I so indecisive about classes? I am just one of those people that genuinely enjoys all kinds of different play styles. I know that Assassin is FOTM right now, but I played it long ago. Stealth! Lightning! Robes! Just ugh, so many classes with so much fun stuff. I think I just like to play all the classes so I have a better understanding of them.

Since it is a story oriented game, I also like to see all the stories. Inquisitor had a really good story, at least I think it did. Assassin has pretty much everything I want. Usually I play stealth classes and then fall out of it for some reason, but I’m typically very good at them. Oh well, either way I am going to play my Sin again and relearn it so I can wreck some faces.

I tried to play Republic, I did. But I can’t love the story like I love Empire stories. The Jedi Knight story is proper Star Wars, very heroic and inspiring. I think it’s a great story. But the Sith Warrior story is simply better. A story of rise to power, becoming more than just your rage and being seen by the Emperor as worthy. It’s the proper Sith story, following your master, to be betrayed, and killing them. But in a much more amazing way. In front of the Dark Council, Baras begs for help as you, the Emperor’s new Wrath, strike him down and prove your position.

Yeah, the Knight is about killing the Emperor, but the Emperor didn’t die, so all the knight did was stall his plans. He didn’t die until much later. It did put the Sith into a panic that caused more in-fighting than ever, but the Dark Council was strong enough to hold the chaos together. The empire lives on for thousands of years, before the seeming peace in the Galaxy we saw in the movies, but they still lived on, nearly forgotten, operating in the darkness. Palpatine, while not nearly as good an Emperor, was still able to reconstruct the Sith pretty effectively.

When you play Imperial, you’re playing the underdogs. They won’t ever truly win, but they’ll never truly die. It’s a fun story to watch unfold. It’s also really enjoyable to be called “My Lord” by everyone. Makes you feel feared and respected. Jedi kind of just get treated like dogs. Like it’s always their job to do all the work. I’m no dog.

Wow, thanks Riot for fixing Azir so quickly as to allow me to play him!

Oh wait, it’s been 7 fucking hours since I bought him and haven’t been able to queue as him once. Wow so good.

Someone should gift me the Azir bundle. I’d love you forever and draw you and I on a Ferris wheel.

I decided to start playing a Sentinel on SWTOR instead of playing a Guardian. As much as I love the Guardian/Juggernaut, I really want a Sentinel at 55 because I do really enjoy the combat potential of them. Especially in the Combat spec. They hit hard and fast and require thought on which target to leap on, because they are made of a thin, wet, paper like material. Guarded by the Force got really nerfed and bad, which seems to be a problem, but that aside, they are a fantastic class. Plenty of big damage potential, amazing support for their team in defense, and fantastic battle control.

Guarded by the Force really needs to have the old mechanic back, but on the same cool down it has now. It used to be what? Sixty seconds? That’s obscene for what it does. Two minutes is a comfortable area. Just remove the “When this skill ends, it pretty much kills you” and the Sentinel has it’s defense back while not being an unstoppable machine of death and carnage. Even still, they are a fantastically fun and frantic class that I look forward to finally having maxed out. Plus Twin Saber Throw is the best skill. It just looks so cool.
