Seed Update

Played more today, nothing new, if you play this seed however, get a farm running quickly, there is little to no food to be found otherwise.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012


Ok, So I like this seed.  BTW, even though you cannot see it, the area around the spawn is flooded with sheep.  So no worry on wool to make a bed.

Spawn Location from the Air

Hill Near Spawn

Surface Coal

Great Lagoon for Floating House(there are actually 2 of these)

More Surface Coal

Desert Across River from Spawn

Awesome Overhang

Flatlands Across the Desert

The Only Cave I Found, in the flatlands

Seed Project, more info

SO I will be running the seed project primarily from work which will mean slightly lower render distances, although i will try to turn it up some for the initial pics.  I will be running an initial pass with the seed on creative mode, to pick out anything obvious about the seed that stands out, then playing the seed in survival, screenshotting anything worthwhile noticing.  I am going to be running these over an extended period, probably around a month, which is a lot of play time here at work, although that may change depending on how things go.  I will post an update probably daily with screenshots from the seed and notify what the seed is.  For anything that stands out I will try to remember to screenshot with coordinates up.  This will probably also be posted to reddit and through Imgur albums with full size pictures if they don't translate out to full size on here.

Seed Project

So I am going to start a new project with Mine craft of playing various seeds, probably in a largely systematic way, pulling screenshots, and posting them on here.

So, I managed to get Minecraft running at work using the Optifine mod and Magic Launcher.  Happy day for me.  Allows my days at work to go flying by.

Weekend Updates

46/100 wins on Sivir, and far too much time wasted on Minecraft.  Got a little server setup for some friend and got the most cave ridden world in existence.  I'm going to have to get some screen shots and post the seed up on reddit, cause I have put 30+ hours into exploring the cave system under my base and still working.

I have lost another day of productive play to Minecraft, meaning I don't have a lot to report, will try to get back on track tomorrow, we will see how that goes.

POS Work Computers

So yea, work computers can barely run Minecraft.  Laggy as hell.  Might have to bring in the wifes laptop to run it.

Weekend Updates

Diablo 3 - Got the barbarian to 44.

LoL - 42/100 wins on Sivir

Got Minecraft this weekend, just yesterday actually, just now got a house put together and started mining, gonna see if I can get the browser version to work here at work, if so, lots of time wasted.

So watching the champion spotlight for Syndra, I almost bought her today and tried her out, but no, still working on Sivir (36/100).  But a couple of things did stand out.  She looks like she is a champion with a lot of potential, and probably a little overpowered out of the gate, but what is new on that part, they always are. But I think it will take some significant practice with her to be able to play her well.  getting her damage output high while staying alive takes a little bit of setup and therefor is gonna take practice to master.

I love the new Miss Fortune splash.  I hate the icon for it however.  On the minimap it looks like a splash of color and takes a second to be recognized as a face.  But I can deal with it cause the splash is beautiful.

Also, why the hell was anyone actually playing Syndra in PvP today.  I don't care if you played her the entire time she was out on the PBE, don't take her into PvP day one, there are usually last minute changes made before a champion is dropped, and you should practice some before you jump into a PvP.  I feel it is a mistake of a player to take a brand new champ into PvP day one, you are just as likely to fuck shit up as you are to help out.

10 Second Guides

So I ran across this site yesterday that I thought I should show everybody.  10 Second Guides is exactly that, it is a very brief guide to each champion with a suggested build and what to prioritize, spell pick order, and tips for the champion.  Its not the massive robust guides of Mobafire and Solomid, but it is great if your looking for something simple to get the idea or jumping into an Aram with the champ.

So my completely unaccomplished self hit 1000 page views sometime over night. Woot.

Weekend Updates

Diablo 3 - Pushing 38 on the Barbarian, been enjoying him alot.

LoL - Did a lot better this weekend, pushing myself to 31/100 wins on Sivir.  Had some really bad games but for the most part everything went better, including going up against another Sivir this morning and completely whipping ass.

Paragon 100

So Alkaiser hit Paragon 100 early today, which almost makes me feel me may be playing Diablo 3 too much.  Which is saying something for someone that would gladly sit at the comp all day and play games.  But that is a lot of time and experience to have to grind out the hit that point.

Had a full steamroll game of League today on Sivir, putting me at 24/100 wins on her.  The 100 wins takes a minute, especially when you have a weekend of bad teams last last week.  I don't really like steamroll games though.  While they are nice if you have had a bad streak of games, they aren't fun, and you don't learn anything. they don't allow you to become a better player.

If you are the kind of person that just plays to play, that it fine.  But if you are interested in winning, or gaining ELO, you want games that are a challenge, that force you to learn how to play better.

Crowd Control in 1.0.5

So linking the Diablo Fans post on it,  crowd control is getting re balanced next patch, making it not completely useless in higher difficulties.  Which I am sure anyone that has seen a CC instantly fall off will be happy about.

Haven't played a whole lot, just a couple of bot matches to get the feel of champions on the free to play rotation that I haven't played before.  Something that I would recommend of anyone, because it gives you a chance to see what the champion is capable of while not being in a PvP where you need to be good with a champion.

No Diablo progress other than slowly selling my collection of rares off that I amassed over the weekend, should last me till this weekend when I can start from scratch.

So inevitably something anyone that plays a game for an extended period of time deals with is burnout.  Weather it be WoW, D3, or LoL you inevitably deal with burnout after you play for long enough.  You will lose the desire to play, where you don't enjoy it anymore, only playing because of your friends or out of habit.

This isn't what I was dealing with when I stopped playing WoW.  I still like the game, just not to the point of playing it over games I am enjoying much more at this point.  I would still go back to it in the right circumstances, even though I don't foresee those happening in all reality.

No, burnout is when you have lost all enjoyment of a game, to the point you just stop playing.  Usually happens when someone plays a game for too long, too much.

Best thing you can do is just stop playing.  Go do something else for a couple of weeks.  You may decide you want to go back to it, you may not.

Updates and Such

So I am still in a slump on how to proceed out at this point, but I am going to start posting again.

Played D3 more this weekend, with a plethora of gear bought on the AH I was able to push into Act2 Inferno.  Hit a snag there again.  Paragon level 2 on the WD.  Also got the barbarian into Nightmare today, I play him more regularly now, I save the WD for when I am playing with friends.

League went badly this weekend.  Played all day yesterday with just a slew of bad teams, causing me to win only 2 of the 9 games for the day.  I will be in with a full post tomorrow guys, later
