#11517 Console wars

Is this even legal?


I recently moved in with 3 other programmers into a big 4 bedroom house. We're all gamers, with gaming rigs, and we are working on getting all the consoles we can right now too. Way too much fun! My point is.... Is it legal? Hell yes!


We just bought a used gamecube + super smash bros . So much fun!

#11468 The Blizzcon 2014 Preparation + LIVE THREAD

Posted by jonnyshiz on 13 November 2014 - 06:29 AM

Sounds great.


I have a couple of questions:

1) How long was the duration of a match?

2) How fast was the game? If you compare the game to TF/Counter Strike/Battlefield, choose an FPS.

3) How long would you survive when a match began?

4) How big felt the maps? Could you walk around for say 30 seconds and not see an opponent?


Great questions, feel free to send me more.


1. Duration of a match was I think around 15-20 minutes? Hope i'm not wrong, I was really excited when playing and lost track of time. Considering you play 2 rounds (one round escorting and the other defending) it totals to around 30'ish minutes

2. I'd compare it to TF.

3. Depending on your class, you could survive pretty long. If you're a long range sniper or have teleport abilities it's easy to stay away from the chaos. That being said I would often find myself setting up in a good "sniping" position and then instantly getting blown up. Other times I'd last like 5-8 minutes. I really wasn't playing my best though.

4. I think this depends on the map type. Let's just say that you're defending against an enemy team who is trying to escort an npc tank...if you spawn far from the tank you could certainly spend 30 seconds before you see an opponent.



Fantastic questions, really made me think. I hope I answered accurately, I only played one game and I had lots of adrenaline in me. Lost track of time etc.

#11465 The Blizzcon 2014 Preparation + LIVE THREAD

So uh, Overwatch was a lot of fun to play :). Typical Blizzard, delivered a super polished alpha game at Blizzcon. While the gameplay was limited and I couldn't poke aroudn the game much or play with customization, the level desgn, character abilities, graphics, and overall feel of the game was amazing.


Lookin forward to this one. I definitely could see how this was just a component of Titan. I think they just stripped down "classes" and kept a few key abilities, then tossed them all into different objective based maps. Literally theres only 3 or 4 keys to use in any fight. I think for my character it was "shift" (teleport forward), "e" (teleports you all the way back 3 teleports to your first location, and looks realllllly cool), "Q" (kinda like an ultimate ability that charges up). I think that's it actually.


Anyways Blizzcon kicked ass, thanks again Sarn...you hooked it up big time. I just wish lines were not 1hr+, too many people -__-.



/edit Sarn is right to be upset about the level of depth. But it's apparent they are not going for MMO style depth. I'm sure they will expand later on a story/lore, and make the characters feel more important....but for now it's reminds me of something similiar to Team Fortress. Just uh....a lot better, with Blizzard polish.

Think some of you might be seeing the "Titan similar to Destiny" from the wrong angle. Who's to say that Destiny developers didn't see or know about the similarities with their game and Titan and say "screw it, we're releasing this first".


After all, agree or disagree with me on this...Destiny is not a complete game imo.

Death and Taxes, among many other hardcore WoW progression guilds, we're recognized in Wildstar's credits for testing. :D

Name reservations moved from 11:00 am PDT to 1:00 pm PDT.


Their website crashed, lol ... not very surprising.







/edit I got the name "Jonny" for sure. I might have gotten the guild name "Titan Focus" just in case, but i'm not certain about guild name. It was a super buggy ordeal, a lot of people were having issues.

In case you guys didn't already see the full HotS Pax East 2014 Panel.



Really liked how they designed their new Murloc hero. (@ 19:10)

#10872 Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft [MT] Now on iPad!

Posted by jonnyshiz on 25 April 2014 - 01:38 AM

Looks strong, I've played against similar decks. I totally agree with rs10, I think bloodlust will hurt more than it will help...especially since meta right now revolves a lot around early board pressure.


I think you need more creatures and less removal spells. Then again, aoe definitely helps against the current hunter/lock meta.


What I would consider testing:

The Black Knight : destroying a hunter/lock's taunts can be crucial to a win

Earth Shock: Adding one more? I'd take earth shocks over blood lust any day with the current meta.

Argent Squire: How's your early game? These guys have helped me with all my decks in gaining early board control.

It's funny how this crap still gets me super excited. Blizzard could file a patent for "dirty socks" and I'd be going crazy over it all day.

How is it that you get into every beta/alpha? Who do you know!? ARE YOU HOLDING OUT ON US!?!?!?


I'm never telling!

When it comes to game testing, living in California is like being the big kid that everyone picks first for their dodge-ball team.


I think that might be true. They only invited 1000 people I think, I have a feeling the fact that I live in Irvine somehow made a difference. Also, maybe...they liked my incredibly detailed feedback at Blizzcon? Maybe...just maybe.

Congrats to getting into alpha!


So what do you think of the game so far?


I am loving it a lot. I have to say though, it's nothing like LoL or Dota 2, or HoN, ....or Smite...


Blizzard is absolutely trying to do something different, it's very objective/team based which I know sounds like every MOBA, but the truth is, you can't really "carry" in this game. If you're team is not working together, your team will lose. Compare that to a game like LoL where a snowballed champion can pretty much carry to victory.


That being said, there is still a lot of room for improvement, but this is freakin Alpha. Not suprisingly, Blizzard delivers a wonderfully polished game considering how early in testing it is.


I'm impressed, and I'll probably drop other MOBAs for HotS upon release.

Can't believe nobody asked this yet... who won? You or Reckful? :D


We were on the same team, and we won :) I almost backdoored they enemy team's palace, got it to about 10% hp. I'd like to think that all of reckfuls viewers saw that. I also talked to him in Twitch chat after the game was over and he shouted me out over his stream. Woo!

I just got in HotS Alpha :) Installing now, wooo!!!


/edit  I just played a game with reckful, such a small sample pool, I think only 1000 players .. that it's bound to happen.

I'm strategically choosing to stay out of this this particular thread, but I will say this one thing...



#10263 Giant Warlock

Posted by jonnyshiz on 29 January 2014 - 09:07 PM

Definitely cool decks guys, I had fun using a similiar warlock death. And I've been playing hunter a lot since release they have definitely gone a long way..


However, my priest deck right now is just WAY WAY too much fun. Way. Way way way. Did I mention how much fun it was?








/edit I have not been playing much hearthstone lately, I just now kinda got back into it since i've been home. Don't judge me and my rank I have not had time to play :)
