That is Amazing (WoW)!

Things that interest me. Mostly video games.

A different game?

“My name is doomedcow and I have been a terrible blogger.”

“Hi doomedcow.”

“It all started on an evening in November…”


Ok. So clearly I have been bad about this thing. Went strong there for a while, but kind of fell off the wagon, it is easy to fall out of the habit, hard to get back into it. If only smoking worked like that.

I am still playing World of Warcraft.

I still really enjoy the game.

I don’t play as much as I was.

Blizzard has demanded my attention be given to something else. Something serene. Something beautiful.

I have been playing Starcraft 2.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

I am no longer afraid to admit it. I am secure in my growing level of nerdiness.

I play as doomedcow. I am in the bronze league (I am not very good), and I am 20th on the ladder (going up from when I started at 80th).

I have been playing for about a month now, and I am having a blast. The campaign (though not finished) has ensured I will be playing this game for a while, and likely multiple times to get the achievements.

The real beauty of the game though is the ladder play. It took me a bit to figure out what the hell “bonus pool” was, even with velinath explaining it to me at least 3 times. (By the way, fewer points in your pool is better).

On the WoW front, I have had a good time with that too. My guild is 9/12 and we can get Cho’gal down to 30ish percent. WE should down him this week. I have been chasing all sorts of achievements, have neglected my dailies, have neglected my auctions.

Still, things couldn’t be better, my guild is still awesome (BTW we are recruiting), and several of us play SC in our non-wow time.

I actually have a couple of articles I want to write, right now. One is about an innocent enough remark I made on twitter, about Mondi (Zerg) losing in the Ro16 to a Protoss. I know these tournaments are pretty serious throughout the community, and I really enjoy watching them, and rooting for my favorites, but really the last Zerg falling seems to have really set some people’s teeth on edge.

Also, I am still researching, but I really want to do some map analysis and post those up here. I am looking to see if anyone else has done it yet.

I think that is it for now. I am still alive. Still well. Family is great. So is Blizzard!

Need I Say More?

Probably not, but I likely will anyway.

Doomedcow got a new Mount on Tuesday…

(hint, click for bigger, more beautiful…more MAGNIFICENT!)

Also, you might notice, when you are done drooling all over your computer screen, that I updated my to-do list in the sidebar, with things I wanna accomplish on my main (Doomed) before Cataclysm. That list was in pretty dire need of updating anyway.

We were short one going into ICC yesterday, so we decided to go play in Ulduar to get some more rusted protodrakes. I think I am tanking something wrong, I cannot hold threat off a wet noodle right now. Ok, it’s not that bad, but it shouldn’t be this hard I don’t think. I know there were threat changes, but this is ridiculous.

We still did the first seven bosses with little fuss. BTW guildies, sorry again that I forgot until it was too late to jump on Hodir’s Ice Mound…it had been a while.

I need to respec, Incite for prot is not what I think it should be, my crit is way too low to take advantage of it properly. Thinking some War Academy from the Arms tree will be helpful.

I will post more stuff on my changes, and how it affects my tanking/threat in general after this weekend.
