MTG Monday: Christmas came early!

Greetings fellow Magic! The Gathering players. I first wanted to start the blog post with the following disclaimer. This post is not sponsored by ‘Star City Games’ or any of their affiliates.

My last post I mentioned that I had purchased a gift for my younger brother and it came in on Tuesday of last week. 

When it came in I was super excited for him and my parents talked me into giving the gift early. Within the box is 1000 Magic! The Gathering cards. I was poking around Amazon and stumbled across it. (Click here for product on Amazon!)

Once I arrived, I knew what it was right away and was super excited. After a couple minuets, and some scheming. My parents and I called my little brother down from his room. We acted as if he was in trouble. The look on his face was hilarious. He really thought he was in trouble when he wasn’t. I told him to take the box out of the bag as we tell him what he was “in trouble” for. 

Once he opened the box and started to take some of the cards from the box, he realized it was a gift. The boy started to cry and asked how many cards was in the box. Once he figured it was 1000, he cried a little harder.

I am super glad he is going to get use from it. Hopefully our local store has a tournament soon so he can get involved.

So, boys and girls. If you are looking for a gift for your MTG fan in your life, this is worth the money.

Feature Friday: Alternative Chat!

Let me start with the following statement. With any featured blog, video, tweet, or any other from of commentary I post to the blog those are though’s of that particular person. I in no way want to sway their thoughts or opinions. I would rather like to have a conversation on the topic at hand. I am not going to openly have a salty take on things here either.

In other words, if you are going to be a jerk, this is not the place for it.

On that note, I found Alternative Chat’s “The End of the Innocence” post interesting. You can read their entire post here! (Clicky Clicky!)

In their post, and I am quoting here. “I am not here to tell you how to spend your cash. I cannot also reasonably direct anyone to stop enjoying something they clearly love and appreciate based on business decisions. The whole mantra of ‘let people enjoy what they do’ needs to continue to be sung, for as long as people have the capacity to do so. How that happens is nobody else’s business but yours.” That statement I absolutely agree with. Who are you, Alternative Chat’s author, any other player of Warcraft, and I to tell anyone to tell someone how to spend their money? I find people that do that type of thing incredibly insulting and to be quite honest an absolute jerk bag.

Alternative Chat pointed out the new mount on the Blizzard store was only meant to be for Korean player base. I will entertain the idea that they have in their post as well that it is a flying, blue colored mount that is a skin of the fox mount from Legion that could be obtained via your Class Hall Mission table. I was lucky enough to get the said mount in my collection. I use it often. Honestly, I do not know weather or not I am going to spend the cash to get it because of the other various mounts in game that I have yet to get to drop that I, as a collector, would love to have.

Is it a cash grab? Sure. Whatever terms you want to use there. However, paying for mounts from the Blizzard online store is not something new. This is also true for Battle Pets. (My previous statement about collecting in game Battle Pets in game over purchasing them still stands in this situation!)

Basically, with the changes within the company recently, one that is out there for making money. With the end of the Heroes of the Storm esports and the release globally of the mount, in the long run, making money is in mind. Do I hate that people lost their jobs? Hell yes. It is also just before the holiday season. It just plain sucks.

I just hope that their is some way to work things out in the future to have the esports for Hero’s at a smaller scale. I know people love that game and the esports behind it. How to accomplish that? I have no idea.

*sigh*

Basically, if you like the mount and want to get it – do so. If not then don’t. Also, remember that there are people behind the pixels. You know, actual humans. Practice being kind even if you do not like what happened.

Thursday Though’s: Finding A Campaign?

DRAGON!

So, it has been a while since I spent time in a campaign. At this point, I do not want to give up quite yet either.

With all the tools available, I do not think that I have spent enough time looking as of late. Holidays and life in general has offered up little time to find a group.

As of right now, It looks like I have the potential to be a part of a one shoot and a Warcraft themed game. I do not have a lot of detail’s on the Warcraft theme group as of yet other then it will be near the end of January.

The one shoot is also going to be sometime in January. Just not sure of a date.

Just as an fyi, the local game stores that are near me, do not provide a game night for D&D as of right now. It sucks.

So depending on how things work out in January, that will help me make a choice weather or not to DM a game for myself. If and when that will happen, I am not sure at this point. However, I will make an announcement on the blog after I reach out to the gaming communities I am a member of first.

Just a few though’s for you on this Thursday.

Warcraft Wednesday: 8.1 Drop!

So, I spent most of my time logged in to Warcraft today doing island expedition’s, World Quest, and leveling up a hunter alt.

It was nothing to fancy but it seems like leveling seems to be going quickly.

I am not sure what is pushing me to level up a hunter other than I haven’t had the class at max level. Otherwise, Warcraft today for me seemed to be very uneventful.

Funny thing is, the hunter is a gnome. Nothing particularly interesting other then mechanical pets. At this point I’m just doing the leveling up thing until the next raid teir is available for us middle of next month.

I don’t think we have spent enough time with the new patch for me to formulate a full opinion on it.

MTG Monday: Holiday Play

For the the Christmas season, my little brother and I play a round of “Cards Against Humanity” and a round of Magic! The Gathering. I am excited for it this year actually.

Without giving away what I am gifting him for the holiday, I know I am going to have my ass handed to me.

I am royally screwed. Even If I lose the round, I am still excited. I do not believe I was this excited for a game of Magic in years.

Just do not forget boys and girls, let your family know you love them and look for deals online for them!

Musical Obsession: Art of Chaos!

hqdefaultWhile doing world quest in Warcraft I had Spotify playing in the background. I put on some random music and then boom, the song Obsession came through my headphones.

There are very few songs that grab my attention right away. This song is now on the short list.

So, take a listen, and enjoy!

Blizzcon 2018: Looking Forward!

blizzcon-logo-og-39036eb778a980553e0d9aedc668c1b6ca825e46cb8c1d1b30cfe95e4e2918fcc0fd69e17666353c3f6c29541275f18ee8b2a5835bde018693283f4d05702142This will be my last Blizzcon post for 2018, I promise!

Looking forward in all of the games that Blizzard produces, we have a lot to look forward to. That also includes Blizzcon for 2019!

Honestly, I believe that next year we will have the con Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd. That is a full year away. On that note, For now we have games & patch’s that are going to play. Friends to gather with in Azeroth and various other places virtually.

Just remember the reason why you, for the most part, gathered at the con besides the games. People. Your raid team members, the team you play Overwatch with. The one guy or girl that you slayed demons with in Diablo. Or just the random person you met one day in Hearthstone, had your butt handed to you, and they taught you how to get better at the game.

Remember what Matthew Mercer said in the ‘Geek & Sundry’ panel. You never know the what type of day the other person is having. So when the aggressive saltiness comes along, be the light in that persons day, be kind, be the light in someone else’s day.
