Taking a Break from MTG

Striving to win? Why so serious? Ooops, that’s not me! I’m one of the happy-go-lucky MTG players lately. Eversince my bf built me a Naya Blitz deck, I became active in playing MTG again. I kept on grinding… sadly, not to the top. Not yet!

I just came from an FNM earlier and my standing sucks. 1-3-1. That draw was brought about my major misplay! Uh-oh… And the 3 losses?
vs Esper Control : 0 -2
vs Esper Control : 0 -2
vs Junk Reanimator: 0-2

I won over one Junk Reanimator match and drew it with URW control. At times like this, I really need lots of things to distract me. Err, something that will make me forget about my mistakes and not so good luck. I’ll blog about my common misplays next time once I’m over it. For now, enough playbacks!

So, what am I up to? Blogging, Facebook, and food. LOL. These are some of the things that make me happy. They help me forget something and make the most out of my ‘waiting time’ or ‘boring day’. What about blogging? Just like what I’m doing right now. Blabbing about MTG or something else. The bonus is when I get paid for it. Hahaha. And Facebook? Oh yeah,it’s one of the reasons why people tend to procrastinate. Facebook offers a lot of things that’s why I have no regrets signing up for an account. I love how the social network helps me in promoting my blogs. It’s easy to communicate or keep in touch with family and friends, fun to play games and share anything you want.

When I want to unplug from bothering thoughts, one of the things I do is play online. It doesn’t have to be MMORPG or other popular games, Facebook apps are good enough. Tetris, SIMS Social, Backyard Monsters, Farmville, etc are some of the Facebook games I played. And there’s something new I’d like to share: LetterUp!

"Drive them back! Make their underworld into their grave!" —Koth of the Hammer

In war, only one party can win. The same thing holds true in online war games. And being a player, you’d like to beat your opponent. With lots of war games to play, you’ll more likely to end up victorious.

War games usually revolve around different types of military actions, both fiction and non-fiction. With the popularity of DoTA and Warcraft, more and more MMORPG games are being released online. The concept of building an army and destroying opponent’s base is so appealing because it requires strategy and skills to infiltrate or take over the base.

There are different types of war games in the form of historical types, theoretical, fantasy or sci-fi. Historical war games are based on the recordings of the past. Characters are topography are sometimes based on the facts from the actual battle that took place long ago. It can’t be denied that World War II has somehow inspired few online war games.

Theoretical types are the hypothetical war games wherein a war is usually anticipated. It’s like building an empire, managing the community and protecting it from outsiders. And when an attack started, you have to deal with the ongoing war.

Fantasy war games are inspired by imagination. It may involve mythological creatures, warriors, brutes, unholy objects and more.

Sci-fi war games on the other hand are based on stron scientific concepts and theories. It involves evolution of human race and technology, usually robots. Because of some alteration in the game development, science fiction war games are believed to be a tone down version of fantasy types.

Just like any other flash games, war games are enjoyable to play. To name some, we have Starcraft, Battalion Ghosts, Epic Defender and Nob Wars. Playing free war games online can give you a great mental work out, too!

Puzzle, Adventure and Mind Games

With Zendikar block and M11 rotating out, I’ll surely miss lots of cards. Fauna Shaman and Vengevine are just few of the best pieces I’ve had in my GW deck. It was really funny how my monowhite quest evolved into GW quest and eventually ended up being Naya aggro. And while my GW quest was at its peak, Stoneforge Mystic got banned. Well, I’ll miss that Kor Artificer forever.

Right now, I’m thinking of what deck to play this coming weekend. Oh, that would be Innistrad Release Party which means there will be sealed tournament… saved me from a lot of thinking. Anyway, my boyfriend will be brewing new decks for me, that’s for sure. With Hex-Blade and Pod decks in mind, he’ll definitely come up with a good deck list.

So I’m leaving all the deck-building duties to him while I blog and earn extra cash for MTG expenses. 🙂 (I’m just a pilot, anyway.)

As part of my online routine, I always check my email and Facebook. While some Facebook updates are really annoying, game requests and gifts still make my day. I give up being a farmer there. My sister is the one managing my Farmville while I’m busy with Backyard Monsters and SIMs Social. Some games are counter-productive yet I can’t help playing them when my blogging tasks seem overwhelming. Fun games relax me. While MTG is a good outlet, some playtests become stressful more than a game should be. Talk about misplays, silly remarks from my guy and more.

So, what are the games that keep me sane when rush projects come in? Most of the time, the kissing games. Kidding. I’d rather do it for real than rely on my SIM. Seriously, there are lots of online girl games that inspire me in several ways. As if Zuma DeLuxe and Tumble Bugs aren’t enough to distract me, I still allot few clicks for puzzle games such as Element Quest, Diamond Puzzle and Vegetables Maching. I mean, they are all fun and perfect for setting up my mood for blogging. Happy thoughts and excited feeling. Sometimes, I also try new stuff from online gaming sites. RPG games are always cool yet there are times that I’m too lazy to complete the quests. Simple e-games are enough to kick me off… I can’t see myself as a hardcore gamer when I’d rather blog while the guys get addicted with MMORPG. Maybe not yet…
