The online journal of Bax

[11/11/2018] - A brief explanation of an instructive beginning.

After quarreling with myself for quite some time, I've finally decided to give this notion the go-ahead. An online space where I can publish my sincerest thoughts; the very thoughts which, often, are unsaid — not because they encourage provocation. In fact, such thoughts, most of the time, have a converse effect. What is, however, ultimate is that herein lies a completely truthful insight into the mind of an absurdly hardcore procrastinator.

One aforementioned detail was that I quarreled with myself about creating, what most users here would consider, a strange topic. How I can imagine the many users reading this very sentence and judging me for both my choice of diction and my will to create such a 'bizarre' topic. Such users, as to be expected, are probably full of glee knowing fully well they'll have a new topic to justify the profanity they send in my direction. And this element is probably the most enticing reason to not disseminate this 'bound to be regretted' diary. Not because it actually affects my self-esteem — that would be a foolish implication — but because it leads to asking myself questions such as: 'Is it worth it?' 

I managed to combat that question with a very simple piece of reasoning. A moral which sometimes acts as the necessary tool to facilitate a worthy admission: 'Because somebody might want to hear it.'

I've come to realise that there's two types of speed players. Those who welcome a challenge, and those who fear it. Much of my self-improvement is owed to being the former type.

Whilst the latter are often higher in terms of numbers, their lack of self-evaluation is perhaps their greatest constraint.

deep in the shallows, a speeder emerged, glistening in the gleaming photonics. Herein he galloped among those of lesser skill, lesser will and lesser ability like Thrill.'

They hoovered up what appeared to be a garnished amount of speeds, thundering ever so placidly in a violent rage of anarchy, hoping to suffocate the esophagus with a python like grip. Although in scenic nature, a disrputpive team mate emerged, swallowing whole, the largest chunks of speeds and then spitting them out like di ck juice upon the young females in play, causing his team mates to not only cry but rage in a violent emectomy

13/11/2018 - Ranking female speeders

I thought this would be a perfect topic to calm my slightly sexist opinions.

1. Ninaballerina - Grrrrrrr, oh how I hate having to admit this (not really, kinda, sorta, maybe). Yeah, we all joke about Nina being a trash speeder, but we all know that it simply isn't true. If she isn't No.1 on your list of female speeders, either you're really prejudiced, not tactically aware, or just plain stupid. Despite me not being fond of her character (for many reasons), she is clearly the most skilled girl-speeder to have played green speed. 

2. Ivy Cel - Another person's character I'm not particularly fond of, but clearly, is a player who is rapidly improving. The quick learners are the ones to fear.  

3. Yea Pizza - In my opinion, the X-factor player.

4. CarnageFX 

5. Simka121 - I feel as though I've been a bit harsh by placing Simka as fifth. I genuinely believe she could rival third/fourth. I know she's still active but I don't see much of her in competitive rooms anymore, so I can't really give an accurate placement.

Remember that this topic is my personal journal. I'm writing in this thread in my preferred way of writing, as you do in journals. If you read some of my posts in other parts of this forum, you'll quickly realize that I write in mostly layman's terms (basic English) because I'm well aware that most users here aren't native English speakers such as myself. If you fully understand everything I type in this thread. Wow, well done. If you don't, then you don't.

Believe it or not, I'm not writing to get my point across; I'm writing because I want to express my truthful opinions without having to limit myself to layman's terms. Sometimes I may be vague; other times I'll be too complex. Just remember, everything you see me write has been written in that way deliberately. This is all just for my own entertainment.

28/11/2018 - Addressing misconceptions [Part I]

1. 'play normal'

This is perhaps the worst piece of advice you will commonly receive from weaker players.

Whilst there are certain situations where you should play safe, such as when you have an extra person on your team (e.g. 2v1 or 3v2), where you should refrain from experimenting if it risks you dying. In general, you should never just 'play normal'.

If you are somebody who only plays normal, then only your consistency will improve. If you simply play in a single style never experimenting with different techniques, not only do you become more predictable but you limit your in-game ideas. 

If you repetitively lose to somebody while playing in a single style, change it up. 

In the span of two days, I played Ocea (LuckyRalf) in a total of six games. He won five of those games and I won the final one.

In the first three games, I chose to play extremely solid and quickly realised that he was tactically outplaying me. In most cases, he secured more space, got more spawns and was the attacking side. The result: I got completely annihilated; I lost 10-5, then 10-4 and then 10-4 again.

It wasn't until the fourth game I decided to switch my game plan. I played way more aggressively: pretty much going through every hole of his, threatening every speed spawn under his control, attempting riskier attacks, etc.  After a few rounds, I felt as though I was more 'in control'; I was the attacking side most of the time. In the end, I lost 11-9 but it was a moral victory. It was clear to both of us that I was a much more potent force than in our previous encounters. The score, at one point, was 9-7 to me, but I ended up failing three consecutive rounds (and he got a fortunate spawn on the fourth one). At the end of the game, Ocea himself said 'that was unfortunate'. 

On the fifth game, I lost 10-8 and I won the sixth 15-13. Ever since I changed my game plan from 'solid' to 'aggressive' against Ocea, you'll notice that the games became much more closer. And now, I have a special style to combat his own. If I had just played normal, I would never even come close to beating him.

(Since this post is becoming a bit long, I've decided to separate this topic into multiple parts. The next entries will address other frequent misconceptions. As for the advanced guide, I've decided to delay releasing it for the time being. Sorry, not sorry.)

To achieve victory you do not have to play perfectly. You simply have to outplay your opponent.

I've decided to post my top 10 list of best speeders in da game. Keep in mind that it's just my opinion, therefore it's 100% valid and if you don't agree then go swimming in the mud pool, you filthy dilettante. I'm always right.

1. AlonsoChacherito

Controlling skills unmatched by others. Fantastic vision and ability of predicting. Bonus points for being clean from cocaine since 2015 (Alonso lives in Columbia, which makes it even harder to stay away from drugs and cartels).

2. Kennnn'

Honestly he would've won this if not for Alonso and his amazing comeback from rehab to the top. Still, Kenny is the definition of perfect speeder - strong, masculine, big boned and british.

3. Svetka Pistolet

Best female speeder in game, period. Also - wonderful spine.

4. Cluxsy

The highest standards not only in terms of gameplay, but what's more important - personality. Definitely the nicest player in the history of CF2, the true gentleman. Just give him that mod status (long overdue).

5. pleiades

As the second best female speeder, Henrik shows the perfect mixture of mechanical skills and mind game. He may be a funny and heartwarming guy (girl) to you, but in reality he's a bloodthirsty predator preying on his victims' fails. You really don't want to meet him in a dark alley.

6. Me

I haven't played speed for 2 years and sincerely detest this mode, but still I deserve to be here. Any problems with that? Challenge me in 1v1 duel. You have no chances of winning (cuz I won't play).

7.

I really don't know who's the 7th best speeder. It's not that easy to make a list, you know?

8. Macht

Well I have no problems with this placement tho. Macht was ranked 532nd in my last entry, but after the speed tour he ended up being here. It's a great story for newcomers - you can be basically nobody, merely a decent speeder, then the tour comes and bam - you're champion and legend. Such a fairytale.

9 (tied). Freakout

Good player.

9 (tied). General Graardoor

He's also pretty good.

As you wish, mate. Your topic - your rules. I'm totally ok with what.

 

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, anyway, this is my top 10 moderators list.

1. Shikon

To fully understand the reason Jaan is placed at the top, you have to know that Estonia is one of the most poverty-stricken African countries. The rare survivors of atomic blast are forced to live on salvage and eat their relatives. That aren't, to put it mildly, the best conditions to play browser games. There are no computers, no Internet whatsoever and the only game you play is Don't Starve: Estonian Edition (no saves, no checkpoints, just one life on nightmare mode). And then we have Jaan - the youngling who witnessed the annihilation of his hometown and needed to consume his childhood friend, Otto Jaaner. Instead of giving up, he used the scraps from the dump he lived in and constructed the PC. Being a math genius, he quickly created the prototype network which let him play CF and forget about war and manslaughter. It was the beginning of wonderful history. The history which ended abruptly, when poor Jaan died during the turmoils in Yugoslavia. He gone too soon, but the memory of him and his wonderful schedules will live forever.

2. sam_pum

Drug addict, husband beater, bad father and tax fraudster. He was the laughing stock when he applied for the mod position. Nobody believed in him, but Geert gave him the chance to redeem himself and we witnessed the biggest plot twist in the history of Achtung, Die Kurve. Sam turned out to be the most polite, helpful and easy-going guy in charge and (what's even more impressive) he did all this while serving his time in Alcatraz (15 years for stealing the train from the Calais station). You would say that every degenerate will make the good moderator, but nah... We all remember Azar, right?

3. NinaBallerina

Nina was a simple bulldozer driver before joining mod's team.  Some day Geert saw her cursing at the construction workers and almost immediately noticed her potential. After gaining the position she did what he does best: abused power and annoyed good people. If these features don't make her a good moderator, then I guess we have to redefine "good moderator".

4. BAXUID

I meet BAXUID for the first time near the grocery store in Brixton. He saw me from the other side of the street and wanted me to come. A bit distracted, I asked kindly "how can I serve you, mate?". In response he showed me his milk bottle. Concerned about his mental state, I replied "Oh, that's a nice milk you have". He shouted "THAT'S AN EXTRA LOW FAT MILK, UNDERSTAND?". Being not a big fan of conversations about dairy products, I told him "Nice mate, but I have to go". Then he kicked me in my abdomen and punched many times while screaming "IT'S EXTRA LOW FAT, IT'S EXTRA LOW FAT". At the end, by using sharp spikes, he nailed my head to the ground and ordered me to respect low fat milk. Such a marvelous moderator he was.

5. pleiades

Henrik the Reviver. She had the hardest possible job, being alone in the middle of crap left by this Alicia guy, who almost screwed up the entire game with bad decisions and corruption. On the first day he created the tribunal. On the second day he banned Arrow. On the third day he hosted the first tournament (2v1 teams with corner, big turns and sniper rifles [guns were discarded later]). On the fourth day he traveled to Haiti, because he felt the strong urge to do so. On the fifth day he banned Arrow's second account. On the sixth day he established the laws. On the seventh day he rested and everything was all right once again. Henrik could've stayed on his position to help CF to grow, but instead he lost himself in things he really loves: strangling animals and prison sex. Nobody's perfect.

6. Run

His biggest merit was the fact he's made of oak wood. He was a solid moderator. Solid like the oak wood he's made of. If you'll think about that deeply, it makes the perfect sense. Later on NOWODNY2 tried to step into his shoes but failed miserably with his weak arms of willow and obsolete nickel pegs connected to wrists. He has never had the makings of wooden moderator.

7. Boris Yeltsin

Only a few oldtimers know that this former president of Soviet Union was once a moderator. He ruled with the iron fist and under his reign CF's community was friendly as never before. Coincidentally, it was also the time CF's community was the smallest in history. Rude, toxic, teaming and lag-abusing players quickly ended their careers. They simply "disappeared" and were never once seen on servers. Geert wasn't aware of this trend and (sadly) paid the highest price. Once he played with his nephew Thijs, who called him (in childish, friendly manner) "big dumb uncle". On the next day little Thijs was no more. He was just eleven. Distraughted by his loss, Geert confronted Boris, who immediately resigned and moved to his cottage in Syberia. KGB answers to no one.

8. Arrow

Let's make it clear once and for all - Dirk has never been a moderator (and if he did, he would've been the black sheep of the team). He's childish, coarse, repellent and cannot even eat properly with fork and knife. He's basically everything I detest in human species. So why I put him in my top? Because, like me, he comes from Poland. Does it make him worthy being listed here? That's actually a good question.

9. Averazon

AVERAZON IS A GREAT MODERATOR. HE'S ALWAYS RIGHT. AVERAZON IS A FAIR MODERATOR. CURVE FEVER WOULD DIE WITHOUT HIM. AVERAZON IS A GOOD GUY. CURVE FEVER COMMUNITY DOESN'T DESERVE HIM. AVERAZON IS RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO BE BANNED. PLEASE DON'T BAN ME. I WILL BEHAVE. AVERAZON HAS NEVER DONE A BAD THING. PLEASE DON'T BAN ME. AVERAZON IS A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW. I STRONGLY DESIRE TO STAY UNBANNED. AVERAZON IS THE MESSIAH. AVERAZON...

10. CarnageFX

He's ok I guess.

(Dis)Honorable Mention: Azar

I wouldn't even consider putting this abomination in my top 120, but R2B2east guy kept begging me day and night to change my mind. Does he want something from her or what?

 

On the next episode: how to mentally destroy your opponent? Stay tuned (not before autumn tho).
