So I tend to binge one game to the next, it was Counter-Strike Go, but it is now Dota (Defence of the Ancients)
I have 399 hours on record. I actually got the game in 2012, but never played it much because I mostly played Heroes of Newerth. However the game has died out now and since Dota is the closest to it, I went full in.
I did the all pick challenge winning a game with every hero which took around 238 games with the 117 heroes. Which is a whole lot of learning very quickly while playing vsing actual players. I like to go balls deep learning while fighting. Adds more fun. Albeit gaps in my knowledge.
I just paid the $5 for one month of Dota Plus and so far its been worth it. The custom skins and extra diamond achievements I added to gyrocopter look pretty cool and track your stats. I also like the extra challenges it adds to each hero to do during the game making it extra fun. Plus of course unlocking funny sound effects.
So far I'm still a noob, even though I reached rank 3 fairly quickly I still have a lot to learn. Luckily the heroes are half the same as HON, so I was able to learn the game much quicker than another player. Gyrocopter is my favourite hero at the moment, I made a guide for him that can be found here.
The reason he is my favourite is due to rocket barrage, he can fly along them basically delivering nonstop missiles into there face, it's strong and very satisfying. Not only that but his slow moving rocket stun is hilarious to watch chase them so slowly just for it to land so I can use his ulti which is no joke just a nuke. I have a win rate of almost 70% with gyro at the moment, so TAKE HEED OF MY GUIDE.
MOBA's are one of my favourite genres, they took the slowness of RPG's and they sped it up into a fast paced rough game. Instead of players just competing in "time" where they brag about there character that they simply farmed with all the time in the world, this puts pressure under them to put other skills to the test on top of RPG skills. Including, countering, map awareness, teamwork, item builds, juking, game knowledge, reactions and more.
MOBAS seperate the men from the MMORPG and RPG kids.
I'm a big fan of Hearthstone. Great card game I've been playing for 2 years now. They just released the new expansion Rastakhans Rumble! Been looking forward to the new one. The game is free and plays on mobile, it's probably the best game on Mobile you can currently play in my opinion. Blizzard always nail it out the park.
Since I knew the expansion was coming I saved up 2500 gold in Hearthstone to buy 25 packs of cards of the new decks when they are released. This way you do not need to pay to win like a lot of others claim. It's pretty easy to make gold in Hearthstone if you just do the daily quests, it adds up pretty quick.
Few interesting cards here to try. In this expansion of Hearthstone they have released a new abilitie called "Overkill" So it means if you do more damage to a creature than its health than you trigger whatever that cards special ability is. We can see above that Oondasta summons a beast from your hand everytime he kills something, and since he also has Rush meaning he can attack as soon as he's placed down, that's instantly 2 creatures put out. Great card!
Seems this expansion so far has really focused on the Hunter with a lot of new beasts. Which is great because hunter is one of my favourite decks. So be interesting to see how the new hunter decks change to adapt to the new cards.

I play a lot of Counterstrike. It's probably my main game I like at the moment. So far I've been experimenting with only using a Negev. Considered the worst gun in the game I've been hilariously making it do pretty well. With over 9500 kills obtained on it by only using it in 5v5 Competitive matches people are very surprised at how well it can be used. You can find my Steam Profile here if you would like to play a game with me sometime.
So far I've managed to go from Silver 3 to Nova 2 by only using a Negev. Ahh Hilarious. The best tips I can offer is finding an angle to line up and spam it directly aiming for head. Always prefire corners and always aim down a little to control the spray. You'll be amazing at how effective this gun can be.
Well yes, as you can see no new games in a while. I guess I lost a lot of motivation for a while, but I'm trying to get it back and get something done! I've been playing Minecraft wayyy too much and letting out my creativity there instead of in flash games.. You can see the epic city I've been working on with friends here >
I also have had a game done for months but can't release due to some troubles, hopefully I do get that sorted and then maybe ill end up releasing two games at once!
