Being a relatively passive Pokemon Go player I don’t really do much battling, raids, or even go out hunting for specific Pokemon (It’s Canada, it’s freaking cold right now). It short, I really only play it when it’s convenient for me. I really just want to complete the Pokedex and that’s it. So I was very excited when I got my first shiny! Not only that but it was a Dratini! Wow. So I really wanted to post this to the Pokemon Go subreddit but after going through it, it looks like a shiny Dratini is somewhat common unfortunately… Whatever I’m still happy and proud of it!

Typical conversation in my empire

Consul Oda Nabunaga: “For our next grand wonders we shall construct the Parthenon! the Grand Library! And the Oracle! Engineers! Where will be the best location to construct such great monuments?”

Civil Engineer #1: “The Oracle would be best built out in the ocean!”

Civil Engineer #2: “The Parthenon should be out out in the ocean too! Not as far, but still pretty inaccessible.”

Civil Engineer #3: “The Grand Library should be built half way down a hill partly on a river! But only one wing of it should sit over the river! Oh and about a third of the courtyard should be on the river too!”

Consul Oda Nabunaga: “I really should’ve researched the engineering technology before I hired you guys…”

CS:GO: A Tale of Trolls

Solo queuing for a competitive match in CS:GO is sometimes a gamble, there’s no doubt about that. You’ve got potential for trolls, people who don’t communicate, and straight up arseholes. But since it’s mostly all I play, I accept this truth and just dive into a game and hope for the best. But this is beyond my worst expectations. These guys were quite annoying on the mic to begin with and the worst part is there was two of them so we couldn’t even kick them.

Ok, maybe they’re annoying but at least they’re trying. Right? Ok, maybe they just got off to a really bad start and accidentally killed four teammates in four rounds. Right!? Ok, whom am I kidding. These guys are trolls or are trying very hard to derank.

Another round, another two team kills. How were these guys not yet automatically kicked out of the match!? Also it looks like Ghostofdead threw in the towel and just quit, can’t really say I blame him.

Two team killing trolls and a bot. How it was 2-3 for the other team at this point is beyond me.

They eventually ended up quitting all together but it was far too late for me and thatmexican619 (props to him for sticking around and trying with me). If those two would have actually tried we could’ve easily won this match. The fact that we made it 16-8, I put up a 42-20 KD, 107 points on my own (not to mention the kills on the bots) makes me think the other team saw an easy win and didn’t try too hard though. Ah well, let’s hope I don’t queue up with people like this again…

A wild Dragonlore appeared!

It’s definitely not everyday I come across one of these (especially in such great condition!) so I couldn’t resist getting a snap of it. The guy named Ace was definitely loaded. Not only did he have gloves and a pricey knife, his inventory was full of other high end skins and multiple knives. God damn.

CS:GO glitch art

So needless to say I’ve recorded my CS:GO games for a while, mostly for my ACOF series but also for some other various things I want to throw together. I’ve recently switched my recording method and noticed that something (though rarely) I catch a frame that glitches out a bit. They look kind of neat so I thought I’d post them for those curious. And technically these are no CS:GO glitches but rather video glitches. Meh.
