Boneheaded Move


Ever have one of those gaming sessions where ABSOLUTELY nothing was working out for you? You fat finger hot keys, the Star Wars The Old Republic-05-28-2015 6-26-14mouse optic gets a cat hair in it…you zig when you should have zagged. Ya last night was one of those nights. I was so proud to show off my latest upgrade augments to my Raid Leader so he could see yup I been taking his advice seriously and was indeed paying attention to end game stats and rotation. I had been looking forward to raiding because we hadn’t done it in a couple of weeks due to vacations etc. It’s summer time so totally understandable.

I made sure I was early, had my stims at the ready, cleared my cargo space, and was ahead of schedule on getting into the raid site. Yup folks I was damned proud to show my team ethic and hard work. And then it happened. first to die on 2 wipes by being either too far away from our main healer’s AoE heals. Ran right into a massive burst attack. Played to DoT Paint dance too far out to stay alive. For the love of god! It’s bad enough that the Ziost Raid Boss is just not a Sniper’s forte. But geez I could do no right! I felt like a fumbling child N00B all over again. My Raid Lead and fellow raiders were plenty supportive. They were cool with it and we did finally get that boss down.

The one of our members DC’d due to weather. We were told to wait till she got back to open loot. Sounds fair and no big deal. I was trying to blow cat hair out of the mouse and BAM! My old man arthritic fingers fat fingered the auto loot key that I was sworn not to touch. Needless to say I felt like a complete ASS. Out of my remorse, I passed on all the loot pieces. Again, the Leadership wasn’t too mad, and they knew there was a potential for  it to go down that way. I just for the life of me couldn’t get anything right.

So dear readers, you ever have a day when nothing went right for you? Or did I give you the biggest chuckle for the day? Either way, thanks for dropping by and here is to me hoping Wed and next Sunday aren’t quite so traumatic. Take care all, and if you ever do have one of those REALLY bad video game sessions, remember your not alone! Till next time, see ya on the Hyperlanes, fast and easy!

  1. Yessss…those days are PAINFUL. It’s great that you were with guildies though instead of a pug. So much easier to get through the screw ups with people who aren’t going to curse you out and kick.

    • I think being with a very solid guild is extremely important. I did A LOT of searching to find my current guild and I gotta say they are awesome people to work with.
