Oh so busy!
This weekend has been mad crazy. Really no time to play any WoW or even play the beta. Just busy busy busy. I did enter the Spectral Safari that I was talking about last update. It was a lot of fun and I learned A LOT about card play and attitude and such. Past Times was a great place, I’ve never been in a place like that before so it was cool to be there and just look around. There were 30 people, it was … really crowded. Especially because there were 2 other card game things going on. Some Magic thing and then Yu-Gi-Oh. Neither of which I play, or think I’m going to play.
Anyway, paid my 20$ entry fee and ended up with a red mage deck. I was excited because I had watched Ben play a mage deck before, so I figured that I could at least mimic some of his moves. The first couple of rounds I did so horrible. The third round was closer, and I won the fourth round. I was so proud of myself! I had actually beat someone. The win really boosted my confidence in myself, so for round five and six, I also managed to win. I went into round seven confident. But got my ass handed to me. I learned so much and met some new people. Which for me was a big thing. I was super proud of myself for that. I’m also proud of myself for placing 22nd out of 30. Not nearly as good as I could have done, but for my first time I’ll take it.
I was going to buy another class starter deck, but didn’t because they didn’t have the one I wanted. I’ll have to check the card place around here and see if they have one next week. I also found out that they’re going to be doing battlegrounds after GenCon at Past Times on Sundays. So I think I’ll make it a goal to hit at least 2 a month. Just to get better. I want to take this kinda seriously, but it’s kinda expensive to start. This class starter really helped though. Because it gave me a good boost of cards and I’ll be able to make legal decks by using them.
Switching gears from the card game to the beta. I’m going to start running new classes/race combos up to level 10, and documenting it. I’ll also work on leveling Tarr and just looking for bugs. It’ll give me some focus, and something to kind of look forward too.
My birthday is in 3 days. I’m going to be 24. Someone should buy me a spectral tiger ;P Since I didn’t win it today at the Safari.
