pinkNINJA in France (soon) !

December 22, 2008

Since last June I have been pubbing it up at an awesome Italian server, n!Gage, and I’m excited to now be a part of their clan! I will be heading over to France mid-January to do an exchange, so I am happy to have a European clan to be a part of ^^ I see it also as an opportunity to practice my Italian. I think it is really cute that a lot of the Italian players call me “pinkina” hehe.

I will definitely miss my clan, LeClan, but I’m glad that all of us compete in Highlander together. I swear if there was a title in CEVO for the most forfeit wins, then we would have been champions.

We played a Highlander match last night at 10pm versus StompFest 1, and it went all the way to 11:45pm! It was a really close match, and we had to play 2 overtime rounds to finally win it, but I am proud to say that we are still at the top of the Highlander ladder. It went later than it should have due to the difficulty we were having in getting a server.

A stalemate from the 3rd round (I have never seen a stalemate in a match before!)

A laugh before the second round started…

Should I say “I have returned” from now on? 😉

The last image led to some assumptions…

I also found this older image from a 7v7 match that Stacked Team played in a couple of months ago. Way too many people showed up that night to play this match- we probably had 10 or 11 people, and the other team was getting annoyed with our surplus of players…

I had a bit of fun with them over all-talk mic by pretending that we were confused and had thought it was 9v9 Highlander… some of my teammates carried on, and lulz ensued!

Sorry, I’m a bit late, because I was MIA last week for exams, but I felt like I should mention these new updates, because they are pure AWESOME.

It’s clear that Valve has been paying attention to what people want, as they added the possibility for upgrades to dispensers and teleporters; the upgrades for these items work the same as they do with sentries- just add more metal ^^. The advantage is that with each upgrade the dispensers will heal faster, and the cooldown period will be shorter between each teleporter use.

There were also updates to the HUD; now when medics are being called they will be able to see the approximate level of health that the player is at. If they are really low, then the bubble will appear in red. I think this will be very useful, as there are people in pubs that use scripts to constantly call medics, because they like to be boosted all of the time at the expense of their teammates (and the annoyance of their medic haha).

Screenshot of my clan member being entirely inappropriate before a scrim (LOL):

1) I use Boodah’s config, so the screenshots are super ugly
2) Don’t use a foreign language as your default language when learning a new game like Left 4 Dead… it’s HELLA confusing!

I posted it for the lulz

The new xkcd comic is the funniest thing that I’ve seen in a long time ! baha (ha)

This picture isn’t so recent, but it also cracks me up:

I am always so tempted to call out “spy” whenever I bump into my teammates on cs:s these days haha

Note: I am currently cs:s-less, due to lack of space on my hard-drive partition 😦 Hitting that un-install button was TORTURE
