Bad Bloody Luck

I have had the worst fucking luck lately. Everything has gone wrong and I’ve got the worst of everything. Frankly, it’s beginning to piss me off, so I’m going to rant about it a little. Let’s start with the Pixelmon server I normally play on. Because holy shit my luck there has been the worst. This server has a voting system (many Minecraft servers do) and you vote for the server and earn in-game rewards. With every vote, you also earn some Vote Credits, and you can save them up to buy a Legendary or a Random Legendary. Most of… [Continue Reading]

On Articuno

I have way more pent up anger towards non-existent monsters than I have any real right to have. Just yesterday I was complaining about how Latias was a right little bitch, and now I’m about to go on another 500 word rant about another Pokemon. Today’s victim is Articuno, the first of the Legendary Birds from the Kanto region. One of the old originals. Basically, Articuno is a bastard. Okay, maybe I’m being a bit unfair. The main reason that Articuno is a bastard is that I have failed to catch Articuno for a very long time. Basically, in the… [Continue Reading]

On Damn Awful Luck

I know the universe is random. I know it doesn’t care about insignificant specs like human beings. I know everything is by chance or by coincidence. I know that luck is just that: luck. But sometimes it feels as though the universe is stacked against me. Or at the very least, I somehow accidentally pissed off a god of fortune or something. Okay, let’s look at a very recent example, one that happened the other day and caused me to write a rage article. My one and only Ex Raid, in which I failed to catch a Deoxys. Out of… [Continue Reading]

“Ya Wanna See Mah Pokemans?” Part 2 – Some More Pokemon GO

So I’ve been playing Pokemon GO for about a week now. To the point that I better understand how everything works. And I actually have some good Pokemon now. I’ve completed various things, am on part 3 of 8 when it comes to the Mew quest and am now level 20. It turns out, come level 20, that is when the real grind starts. Up until now, it’s all been rather easy. I’ve actually been leveling up all over the place. Things definitely felt slower around levels 17-19, but from about level 6 to level 10, it all happened so… [Continue Reading]

The Problem with Riven Mods

When the War Within came out, it introduced Riven Mods, often just called rivens. The idea was that you’d receive a veiled mod with a challenge on it. Equipping this mod on a weapon and completing the challenge would unveil the riven and produce a mod for a specific weapon with randomized stats on it. These mods would cost about the same as rare/gold mods to upgrade and would ideally be a huge buff to unpopular or bad weapons, since the randomized stats included would give you more space for other mods, allow you to experiment more and try out… [Continue Reading]
