The last few weeks of January had been quite hellish for me, and I’m quite happy that I’m getting some sense of normalcy back into my life. To others normalcy isn’t really that normal; winged penis talk, a naked Rubicon with a Unicorn horn, and the derpage that comes in our house with furniture being flung this way and that? Yeah. But you know what? I’ll take it over anything else, cause laughter is definitely what I would like to fill my life with at the moment.
Since I had been gone, I have found that Crystal Tower has both gotten better and worse. Better in that there are things in there that run a lot more smoothly depending on the party make up. Worse in that, well, there are still some obvious dickwads that like to make life hell for people. Like… dying in a fight and staying dead so that you can’t be kicked out because you want to go AFK. Things like that made me want to pull my hair out, but I rather like my hair so I think I’ll keep it on my head for now. I do wish there was more to handle such assholes, but I have been told I should be CTing in the middle of the week versus the start when the assholes are plentiful. Just as they are late at night. I definitely feel sorry for the poor souls who try to attempt that piece of content during the “witching hour”…
My coil group in Game Over has now reached Turn 4 after a hiatus due to real life conflicts. It was our first attempt last weekend, and I think we did fairly well when more than half of us had never had experience in this area. We gave up quite easily though, going in favor of getting people relics so that we have more job variation down the line. I think for the most part we are ok when it comes to tanks, BRDs, and maybe even WHM. We do have more DRGs than MNKs, but I believe only a few of us have BLM or SMN leveled to max. And the people who have those leveled are often on other much needed jobs.
I think if we had kept at it, we could have possibly gotten further than we did. We did keep making progressive progress, but it was a matter of trying to burn it a little bit harder each time or something. I do think there are some tweaks that could be made to tighten things up a bit or maybe to later to make things a bit better. Its just a matter of having the rest of us sit down and really hash it out.
Truth be told, the only one who seems hardcore serious is my brother, Renya, who is often calm, quiet, and collected. The rest of us? Well, we aren’t the founding members of Derp Squad for nothing.
