    • It's Been A While...

      5 years ago

      JDogJordan

      Apologizing for my absence isn't really needed I guess.

      Been busy. Deal with it.

      Anyways, our GGL season (Church's Squad) didn't go so well. 8-13 when I figured we'd be 16-5 or better. What happened? Chemistry happened. While I'll admit I wasn't the best player, I definitely felt alone when playing. Our captain wasn't as good as I expected him to be and that was unfortunate. He was our runner and was just dropping the ball here and there. I took over at runner and was left with 1 great tank and 2 other decent guys. Facing a typical 6 team division, that lineup would've been fine, but we were in the veteran division playing great teams. We won some and lost more.

      My point is that I decided I was going to leave that team after a season. No hard feelings to Church's Squad. They're still going strong with a similar lineup for the next season and I hope they improve since I love those guys (and girl) but I'm working on a new team that should really spice things up. I won't say who is involved or what name we will have, but I can assure you that we're gonna be an impressive, if not tough, lineup.

      In the AGLA I got put onto First Strike, a team that got boned in the bidding process. We were ranked the worst (expected) and are doing okay. Most people just say it's our host winning but I'd like to prove them wrong since when our host is pulling, we all do terrible except for him. That can be taken as a bad or good thing, I know both arguments. Either way, he shouldn't have host much longer, but the real point here is that I think that they think if a team that should be bad does well, then it's not skill, it's connection.

      Isn't that kinda bullshit?

      I mean I play against some of the best players who out-connect me easily and I do okay. I don't wreck them but I have a bit trouble killing them and tend to go slightly negative. Yet, they get praised as great players so... I am not saying that they're all connection. They have skill. They also have a favorable connection. I am sure there is more to it than that but really, if a team does well when they shouldn't don't just jump the gun and say it's not skill. We had to do something right to win.

      I'm not here to ramble about connection. You probably know my views on it and probably have experienced it yourself. I'm just telling you what you missed since I last posted ;)

      My captain, on the other hand, likes to get cocky. It's not really a bad thing, but it is when he kinda already has a bad reputation. Just recently he jokingly (I believe it was a joke anyway) posted in another team's forum and they ripped him a new one saying we were all connection and no skill, go fuck off (in a nutshell). I would've said something but he valiantly argued back and they just gave him similar responses really. Yes some stuff he said was dumb but he really just wanted to throw a joke and that ended up badly. I've told him that he tends to jump in on other people's business and he said he was working on it, and that's fine. What I'm saying is that being on the "worst" team in the league with a captain that a good amount of people already dislike isn't the best position to say "we're good, fuck that connection noise."

      If we place higher than 10th this season, we honestly have proved something. We've proved we were better than anyone ever thought. They claimed our Amateur Affiliate could beat us and yet we've fought tough teams and barely lost (and have won 1, but it's blamed on connection).

      I guess being apart of a team that has a bad rep captain and a host puller who pulls host nasty just leaves you in a position of "you're not good, shut up." I don't like it but I guess there isn't much I can do about it besides do my best to help the team win. The problem there, well, you guessed it, connection.

    • Grifball Rant

      6 years ago

      JDogJordan

      So on Facebook I tend to write rants every now and then. Well, this rant really wouldn't work on Facebook...

      I love Halo 4 Grifball. I enjoy the fast pace and the dynamic of passing and multiple other things about it. So why don't I play it unless I have a game or a scrim? Because of connection.

      I'm not gonna sit here and tell you that on a LAN I would be the best Grifballer because I know it's not true. I just want to say that I hate my internet. In Grifball, when you lunge at someone with your sword, 9/10 times you will neutral. I barely get it half the time. Someone sprints into my hammer range? I can't do anything about it. I die wondering why I didn't neutral. I've had times where I have gotten a full hammer swing off before the other person has started swinging and then I die. They don't die, and it's like I didn't even do anything. And this is from touching distance. It pisses me off.

      I almost want to stop trying to play competitively because I can't beat the better teams in Grifball or even really compete because they just have better connection all around. I'm not gonna call anyone out and say they're connection whores, I'm just going to say that anyone can out connect me.

      "Well you need to adjust."

      How? How do I stop someone from running into my hammer range and killing me? Swing earlier? I already told you that doesn't work. Use a sword and just get neutrals all the time? It'll work occasionally.

      I just wish we could find a way around connection. LAN can't work when we have a lot of people from multiple states/countries playing. When we get dedicated servers next year for Halo 5, the person closest to the server will have the best connection (but it might not be nearly as bad.) Guess I just gotta hope for Halo 5...

      Sorry to rant like that. Just frustrated!

    • Starting off 1-0!

      6 years ago

      JDogJordan

      Tonight Vital Signs, the AGLA Team I am apart of, played Next Dimension. With L1ght5aber and Jedi Hunter not playing, that left Me, Rain, Hootenany, and Bosco. I must say I was surprised with how the game went.

      Round 1 was a pro run for us so we started off 1-0 immediately.
      Round 2 was a very 4G1B-esque round where it lasted until around the 14 minute mark. We ended up scoring so now we're up 2-0.
      After that, well we rode the momentum to a 9-0! I pulled off 2 really awesome plays: a triple kill and double kill on their spawn along with Bosco getting a double so Hootenany could score and for our 8th goal I sworded their runner on their side of the court and made a B-Line right to the goal.

      I was also surprised by my stats. I don't remember points and am too lazy to check the waypoint link but I had the 2nd or 3rd lowest overall score but the 3rd highest K/D ratio of -5. Rain went +57 if I remember correctly and Fanciest Pants went +17. I was happy to show off my tanking style of "avoid people as often as possible" and actually see it work!

      My new Youtube channel is being launched! We are doing all kinds of video game news and even doing some table top gaming! We've announced our Grifball Highlights series so tag your Grifball clips "PCGrifball" and we'll check them out!

      The channel is going to be focused more on the less mainstream games. We want to get the quality games that tend to get overlooked out to the people so they can enjoy a good game. We also want to do some table top games so that way people can get a game and not worry about buying something that they don't want.

    • Drafted by... An Admin?

      6 years ago

      JDogJordan

      AGLA (B)admin L1ght5aber drafted me onto his team Vital Signs. I went for a small fee of 10 credits (not complaining) and was one of the first players officially drafted (3rd to be exact).

      I feel like he saw some potential after playing in the mixer with me and wants to help show me how to be a better tank since I got an overall C+ grade (B- tanking skill). I'm excited to start playing for his team and hopefully winning some games

      It's official, I found my new team! Last Wednesday I played on Wednesday Night Grifbrawl in a friendly scrimmage between Sarge's Squad and Church's Squad (Church's is a spinoff of Sarge's). I was doing more so as a mild tryout but enjoyed myself so much that I decided to join the team. My partner in crime, BaconFadays, also played that night and joined the team as well! So GGL SML13, watch out for Church's Squad!

      Read out loud that would sound like a great life choice, but read it on paper and you'll see that it is something different. My time has come to leave the team I helped create and lead to great playoff runs. I know recently there have been some changes but I do think this is for the better. I already have teams asking me to tryout and was told that Red Ray, my once rival, is having tryouts that I can try for. I'll explore my options and find what I feel best suits me.

      Thanks for your guys' support through these changes and all the rough things that have happened this past week and a half (Shoutout to Snickerdoodle!)

      Well I have officially resigned as Director of HH Gaming. It was something that I felt needed to happen. I will be taking my ideas and content elsewhere. I currently am working with friends on a new collaboration that I feel has huge potential. Our creativity knows no bounds, our content has great potential, and I can even design a website and host it for us thanks to my current job. The future is looking bright and I can't wait to bring you all fantastic quality content!

      also, I was watching the HHG (awesome logo by the way) highlights ep. 4 i think? on the Forerunner site today and (first off.. remember I am a newb to pro Grifball and seeing all those awesome tricks you guys /gals do) I was so amazed near the beginning when the guy gets to the ball and hammers himself backward as he grabs the ball then bounced off someones HEAD and landed lightly and takes 2 steps over to score the bomb. heheh wow! smiley13.gif i "rewound" and watched that part over and over. smiley7.gif
