In regards to playing the game wrong…
Picture raiding like a jigsaw puzzle. We all have to put it together, the only real differences is in the details. My approach is to study the picture on the outside of the box, know how many pieces there are, and know what every single piece looks like before I even consider putting it together.
I’m feeling significantly better, and have prepared a time line of my illness:
Saturday: start feeling a little ill, thinking I might have a minor cold.
Sunday: feeling really bad, ugh this is horrible.
Monday: went to school, suffered greatly, extremely ill.
Tuesday: did not go to school, stayed at home.
Wednesday: tried to go to school, gave up due to abdominal pain.
Thursday: stayed home, but felt better.
Friday: went to school, felt more better.
Saturday again: went to work, still sick but definitely much better!
Sunday again: still some coughing and stuffy nosery, but now it just feels like a mild cold. No problemo!
So was it swine flu?
Runny or stuffy nose? Check and check.
Sore throat? Check! It actually got so bad I lost my voice completely, and I had Rorschach voice for a day when I got it back.
Body Aches? Check, and boy was that not fun at all.
Headache? Well… not really. I was too nauseous to notice if I had a headache or not.
Chills? Check! This was the worst part. Freezing cold under a massive quilt in a water bed set to a hundred degrees does not bode well.
Fatige or Tiredness? Check and check! Sixteen hours of sleep! It does nuthink!
Diarrhea and vomiting? Check and check. Film at eleven (not really).
I’m guessing it was, in fact, swine flu. My medical expertise at completing check lists I found on the internets tells me so. So HAH. I beat you swine flu! Bring on the zombie apocalypse! I got this!
I like watching raid fight videos. I like watching arena and PvP videos. I quite enjoy myself, as I can really get into them. I get that some people can’t watch people play WoW, but I can. Provided it’s interesting.
I’ll show you what I mean.
Consider this video. It’s not a clean kill. Nearly everyone dies, and the raid is mere seconds away from a total wipe when the boss goes down. This is the best kind of raid video ever.
It gets boring extremely quickly to just watch a superior raid utterly crush an encounter without effort. It is far, far more entertaining to watch a raid struggle, to see four DPS suddenly bite the dust, to watch the only remaining tank alive come so close to death over and over again… but he just barely hangs on an OHMYGODTHETANKDIEDOHNOOOOOO.
There’s something to be said for watching flawless execution videos, but it’s just more fun to watch a video where suddenly a mage dies out of freaking nowhere.
And when the tank dies (skip to 8:50 to watch the poor feral druid get one shot) and the boss lazily starts killing off raid members one by one… man. Just golden.
I even like the music, being a big fan of “electronic” styled musics. Screw musical taste. Gimme some powerful bass or get out!
