      Galaar Alla till mig!

      Another long forgotten update. I quit my job at Conduent a couple months ago to work for Kelly Connect at a friend's recommendation. It's the exact same job, only with better pay, I also don't have to fix Macs for a while now, just iOS stuff, like phones and the like, which is fine for me since those are easier than computers. Training has been really easy of course, trying really hard not to step on my trainer's toes when he's teaching, but I slip up and do every now and again. Final exam is in 2 days, I've passed every quiz they've given, and barely paid any attention this last month of training, but that's to be expected since it's literally the exact same thing I've been doing for the past year. It's almost like a paid vacation considering how much slacking off I've been doing.


      Been refining my streaming these last couple months too, now dual-casting to YouTube and Twitch, all I need now is to stabilize my schedule so I can do it consistently, EW2Galaar on Twitch if you feel like checking it out at any time, not much yet, but there will be, it's a fun hobby. Actually started picking up more followers just by streaming Rust of all things. Regretfully, one of my viewers was stream-sniping me and basically used the knowledge of my base's insides to know where to raid from. On my local server I was raided and griefed out of 4 bases, each time basically making me start from scratch each time without even a place to store my gathered loot. Over the course of the month I was raided 11 times, but if they hit me, took my stuff, and left me the base, I was only annoyed at it. I'm a builder. I look at their attacks and revise the base to improve it. Towards the end when the server reset was coming and everything was getting raided, they never found my hidden cache of my most valuable stuff, I set that up off-stream and never went to it while live. I'm pretty proud of it, but won't share what it is ofc.


      Overwatch World Cup Semi-Finals are in 14 hours, US had the misfortune of being in the same bracket as S. Korea and will be facing them first. At least the meta has moved away from dive so there will be some variance in the lineups rather than both teams in every match running Winston, D.Va, Zenyatta, Lucio, Tracer, and Genji/Soldier 76. I have to go for US on this, not because they're my country, but because I love an underdog.

    • Apple, Overwatch, and SWTOR

      My time so far as iOS tech support for Apple has been an interesting change from DirecTV tech support. The customers are nicer and more patient (overall, there are always asshats), but there is a higher focus on customer satisfaction surveys, to the point that if my customer surveys are high enough, it can increase my hourly pay by up to $3/hr on a weekly basis, meaning you have to budget for the base pay and plan around that since surveys can be outright unfair. Ex: I recently got a 1 satisfaction review because I would not refund a person the $20 he spent on a battery replacement kit for his iPhone from ebay, which he replaced himself. He hated hearing that he voided his warranty and that I wouldn't even issue an iTunes gift card to him (yes, he tried to haggle to that).


      I still am a solid Windows and Android user, seeing how involved and limited the fixes are for Apple stuff has only strengthened my commitment to not actually buy an Apple product at even half price. 


      On the Overwatch front, I'm eagerly anticipating the rework to the Support character Symmetra, she's been my main character for Defense situations already and the rework will make her more feasible on Attack as well. Almost to prove to my friends I'm not jumping on the bandwagon like a Reaper main of ours did when Soldier 76 got tweaked (thus being back in the meta...whatever that is), I've been more aggressive with her, not just pecking on the sides or guarding the point, I'm in the middle of the fray alongside the main DPS and kicking ass. Whenever we have a Zarya, they know they can get a good cannon charge by keeping me shielded.


      SWTOR has me disappointed, the 5.0 patch plays like a gut punch from the changes, I lost 2 secondary abilities and ACoy in general can no longer do our signature move of a mass Mortar Volley as it was Advanced Class restricted. Also depressed that my Ranked PvP gear is only as good as mid-level PvE gear now since the PvP stat Expertise was changed to the generic mastery stat, making my casual PvE gear better than my PvP gear. Story-wise it's meh and I'd rather they didn't try to keep making us redo the same content repeatedly that we've already been doing repeatedly to get the top-tiered gear. This concern was voiced, at length, during the closed Focus Group I participated in at BioWare Austin a few months back. Good to know they actually listen at those...

      Alpha Company's interest in SWTOR wanted to the point that we are on hiatus from the game indefinitely since they seem to have no interest on working on PvP or it's Open World aspect. We've got our core group still intact, but it's more of a collection of friends with an interest in Stormtroopers and military rather than a guild at this point, we will be back and reform, but will need a better game to do that with.

      Confirmed from the RTX panel, the crowd lost it. Also looking forward to the Japanese dub 9f this movie. Now if only Michael didn't wear such off wigs to the panels.

      Work is blah, demotion due to impending layoffs hit me hard, so I'm not a sup anymore, just a tech grunt. On the bright side, I helped get a work team renamed to Chupathingy.


      RWBY Vol. 1 in the Alamo was good, will be doing 2 and 3 they said as they lead up tol Vol. 4 so that'll be fun.


      I'm excited for RTX since it's right after my birthday this year, knowing the town better, should make the most of it again.

      Caught the 7pm showing at the Alamo and the Michael Q&A afterwards. This was a pretty good movie, you'd swear it was a major production studio that did it rather than an IndieGogo thing. Afterwards Matt and I were in a post screening interview of some sort, not sure where it'll turn up, but the camera and boom were high quality so not likely a film student.

      Tonight my roommate and I went to an Austin Walmart for some groceries. I was walking in front and he was pushing the cart behind me when a stocker in front of us said, "I like your shirt." It's always nice to bump into another fan of RWBY, I was wearing my Sun Fu shirt https://store.roosterteeth.com/collections/rwby/pr... but then I realized she was looking past me and referring to his Rose logo shirt https://store.roosterteeth.com/collections/rwby/pr... and to hear him describe it, my shoulders noticeably drooped. He thanked her and we went on to the next isle with him still laughing about it when another stocker commented on how he liked RWBY as well, again, only referring to my roommate's shirt...

    • Season 13 at the Alamo

      Went to the Alamo on Lamar for the season marathon screening of RvB 13, really glad I didn't see the last episode until then, it was so emotional, you could feel it in the room. The Q&A at the end with Miles and crew was great as well, covering the future seasons and the fate of Epsilon, but the big one for me was that if he had the choice he'd end RvB right there on that crescendo.

      Sat in the handicap seats since the rest were taken and they were opened up for emergency seating, got lucky there when ordering tickets for this, they were sold out on my first attempt. Wound up 3 rows from the front at the end of the isle, right next to the standing crew, allowed me to hear some amusing side commentary during the Q&A and bits during the screening.

      I have been living in Austin, TX for 2 weeks now. It's hot, but at least dry. Managed to get in 1 day at RTX, caught the Founding Fathers' panel and it was a blast, Burnie tearing into a short girl that didn't think to tilt the mic down AND a guy dressed as the Grim Reaper (the only thing you're killing is our momentum!), someone wanted to be inside Joel (phrasing), and Gus tore into his editor (dumb enough to try and preface anything to them about math).

      The desk I ordered was lost in delivery and is being reshipped, I'm working from the kitchen table. Using points from work I got a $40 waffle maker and a $300 electric smoker at no cost, going to start with cheap meat until I refine my technique.

      I got the job as an Acting Coach and assume the duties on Aug 29, meaning I'm a sup on a trial basis for 3 months, then will get permanently hired into the spot if my performance was great and if there's an opening, otherwise I revert back to a tech grunt.

      i plan on drawing it, the only problem is that idk who will play what part. XD. like i could picture north and south looking at the role of the loving twins, North would try, but south would laugh then walk away like it was some kind of joke....and we all know the director wanted to do this...he should play the part of Haruhi's dad XD

      When Dom went up to that statue and started talking to Maria, my brother and I looked at each other and it was like "He's so gonna die."
      "I know, I don't want him to though..."
      When he was driving that truck my brother was yelling "NOOOOOO!" because he's always played as Dom... Oh man, he was so pissed when he had to play as Jace, we both hated that character...

      Thanks, but I don't think phase 2 is that big of a deal for our guild; we don't necessarily have any allies or adversaries.

      Thanks for taking the time posting your input. I've heard that the medic class is also overpowered in Battlefield 3 because of the weapons being too accurate for MGs. You mentioned that it was almost perfect, but how did what's your response to this? smiley1.gif

      Now, if I were to get to four... that would be fucking ridiculous. XD

      I have solutions in my head, but it really all comes down to Mechanic and he already purchased the armor needed for Carter. What I was going to do was hand off the torch to you, I would take over as Carter, and then he would be Jorge but yeah... Now though Hilts might be Jorge which means I would have to take over as Chief once I got to Brigadier (soon), so you still might need to be Kat.

      Stupid armor pieces only being available at General...

      I appreciate the effort, but for what I want to do I need a full shot of the body facing forward with the weapon lowered (kinda like this). I can get my Spartan from Halo 1, 3, and Reach, I just need help with 2.

      Thanks for trying, though!

      We already got Rai to NH for us, but I still have to run it by the other team to make sure its fine with them. If they dont like Rai, Ill put your name, and AJ Cena's(he contacted me too) name in the mix. So we MIGHT still use you, but right now Rai is our first choice unless TGN doesn't want her. Thanks though=)

      I would say so as well except it came from the official xbox email and Louis Wu himself got it. If it asks for any kind of information from me I'm gonna say no but so far it doesn't seem fake. I haven't gotten the points, though, but that could be in relation to my console assign problem.
