Well I'll be...

Now that the LOTRO is over, the feeling of wasting my time has also left, hooray! I think this could be patrially due to my new 14 day Trial of City of Heroes/Villains.

I have made a Villain Brute with the 2nd primary of like Stone Armor I think? I really had no idea what was good or not when I made my character, just that the tank/beat people up class is always a good choice for a first class.

My first impression of the game was very frustrating. The mouselook wasn't inverted and I couldn't figure out the UI and the sheets for a while. But as soon as I got the hang of things I began *gasp* enjoying myself!

I don't know how long this feeling can last, I am actually scared of it, I forgot what it felt like. So I am now level 7 or 8 I believe, and at work today I decided to look into Builds/Archetypes that are on the more, well, overpowered side. I quickly gave up this pursuit though when I noticed a Stalker build with the words "best PvP archetype".

What? This game has PvP? I didn't even think it was possible. (I blame PKer.org for this because it's obviously not my brains fault.) So I look into the PvP rulesets and discover that there's an arena, pvp zones, and supergroup battles or some shit. Hooray!

Turns out that around level 15 is when you can first experience the PvP. This is something I plan on doing, hopefully today, who knows.

On a side note: Metaplace.com

Over at PKer.org the majority of us were lured there by the Make your own Game forum. We used to talk about MMOs and what the problem with systems were. But we're all lazy and worthless so we pretty much stopped that. My point is that I am very excited about this. I could see myself slowly working on something for years by just doing a little bit every day.

It is very exciting stuff.

My only worry is that the limits wont be my imagination, but the tools.

I know everyone's already written about this and who gives a shit about what I think, but I just wanted to say I am excited.
