Trying out a variety of characters and play styles in Overwatch and Jesus fucking Christ I am a terrible healer. Or rather... I'm not the most hideous at it, but healers are squishy and die so very easily, and my team won't stay together where they can be easily fixed, so you're dashing off trying to stop people dying and getting shot in the head with depressing frequency.
Good thing I'm used to that really.
I'm not a natural tank either, too slow and cumbersome, not fast enough to get out the way, although I've seen some excellent tank players and I'm kinda jealous. I'm sorta-okay with Bastion, who's basically a mobile gun turret so while slow, yes, the DPS aspect appeals, but unfortunately it turns out I really am best with Soldier: 76. Except for the times I'm absolutely fucking awful, but it's generally not too bad. I got a 25-person kill streak earlier, not something I seem able to achieve with anyone else, even the other straight-up shooters. Plus you can still kinda heal your team, which works for me.
Was brave enough to try playing quick-play, so team of people against other team of people. Again, either fucking awful or not too bad, so I've gone back to playing against the AI (but this time on hard instead of medium) to try to get better.
...Not really feeling like I'm getting better yet.
I look weird blond, but it's kinda growing on me... Though right now I kinda look like a fatter Scott.
Weird goings-on in the kitchen again. Twice now the jigger's glided gracefully towards me after I've put it down. The bottom's probably damp, but it's just weird that it gets used every day but this is the first time it's taken to roaming over the textured work surfaces. We'll see what happens tomorrow.
And the parrot's monkey nuts threw themselves off the kitchen table while I was fiddling with the washing machine, but that was probably some disturbing psychic attack from the bird in question who can see into the kitchen from his current location and who'd stuff himself into circularity with them given half a chance.
I'm not avoiding writing (he says, choking back a laugh) but I'm trying to fix up my old work laptop to use. Thing is, it's my old work laptop for a reason: the wifi adaptor keeps dropping out, and either it then loses it down the back of the sofa (again) or it just randomly reboots (which it isn't supposed to, it's supposed to give me an error message, but perhaps it lost that setting after it randomly rebooted). Sometimes it can go for ages without issues — it went overnight and through to midday today without an issue downloading and installing updates for Windows 8 (yes I know I know) — and then it can crap out twice in the space of ten minutes. I've tried a variety of settings so now I guess it's just Wait And See, and failing that it's taking the back off it and seeing what's come loose. Although even if it's come loose it shouldn't be rebooting.
Hopefully, if the wifi issue can't be fixed I can just turn off the wifi altogether and that'll keep it stable — and maybe, just maybe, me off the internet long enough to write something.
I'd say "something not-shit," but we all know that's a lie.
