Level 28!

Almost there. It’s so close I can taste it, that level 30. And soon I’ll have my first two rune pages filled as well. Then I can start buying champions again and unlocking more rune pages.

Enough about my progress. Let’s have a look at what’s Riot is doing. In the upcoming patch they are nerfing some defense runes and buffing the offensive runes. I build my AP and AD rune page with offense in mind. So I can finish building them this way and they’ll be even more effective. But it made me wonder if an offensive rune page and defensive masteries would give a better result instead of the other way around. I don’t have enough IP yet to test it, but I will when I have.

My main is still Sona and I’m getting more compliments every time. I’m getting better at playing support. Ward all over the place, save my team mates when needed, harass the enemy in lane phase. It might be a boring role, but it’s a necessary one. And AD carry without a good support can’t carry. I would like to learn to play different support characters as well. That’s why I’m looking forward to the Kayle buff and Karma remake.  The Karma remake is planned. Karma’s designer said she’s getting more CC.

I hope this will make her more viable as a support. He never said anything about when this remake will be released. In the mean time I’ll be looking forward to Varus. I saw something last night and he looks awesome. His range is insane and his skills look fun.

Myndflame madness!

Level 25!

I reached level 25 a few days ago. It shouldn’t have taken this long, but life happened and several things prevented me from playing. I have a LAN party next week so I’m expecting to get to level 30 before March is over.

I’m still playing Sona as my main in normal games. When playing in a premade team, I shine as support, mostly because others can do more damage than me. I don’t mind playing the support role or the occasional bait. I still have to try other supports like Soraka and Lulu. I really want to learn how to play a good Lulu. Just the thought that I can demasculate men by turning them into a cute kitten or a cupcake is exciting. I will write more about Lulu when I get to play her, hopefully soon.

Awesome stuff I wish I had – Kingdom Hearts 10th anniversary box

Kingdom Hearts is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. This franchise has a special meaning to me. When the first game came out it, I saw the trailer and was entranced by the beautiful song that accompanied it. I looked it up and found it was Simple and Clean from Utada Hikaru. This was my first conscious meeting with the Japanese pop culture. After that I started to watch anime (the ones not shown here), read manga, listen to more Asian songs etc. Without Kingdom Hearts I wouldn’t be who I am today <3 So I wish I had it, I wish I could buy it, and who knows, maybe I will :)

Updated

I have updated the two pages about me. Not much is added, besides some links on the hypermobility page and the addition that I’ve graduated from university. I’m getting my diploma on Tuesday and I’m very excited :D Who wouldn’t be?

When I was updating the page about hypermobility, it felt incomplete. I’ve learned and experienced a lot in these two years and I do see people coming here to read about my experiences. For them, and for me, I’ll write some more general posts about hypermobility. Note that I’m certainly not a doctor and have never studied anything in the field of medicine or biology. These posts are all my own experiences and definitely don’t apply to everyone who is hypermobile.

Surprises

In my last post I wrote that I couldn’t game because it’s too cold. But my body keeps surprising me. Last monday I went to physical therapy and I complained that I still have a headache. My first major headache was at the end of june last year. Since then I’ve visited multiple doctors, had scans, had to give up some of my blood. The last doctor diagnosed my headache is caused by a neck injury. Monday I found out what kind of injury. Apparently one of my cervical vertebrae is dislocated. Between the C1 and the C2, the parts which connect the skull to the spine, there are 4 ligaments, and these aren’t doing their job. I don’t know which one, or if it’s multiple, but something there is wrong. I had no idea there were ligaments there and I could dislocate them also. Not all surprises are good, but it does help me to realize that I really do have to watch out for any kind of blunt trauma on any place of my body.

Now that I know what’s wrong, I can try to fix it, or have someone fix it for me. But in the mean time, I’ll be taking painkillers, yay.

No gaming

It’s been a while since I last played League of Legends. Winter time is definitely my least favorite time of the year. It’s cold and now there’s snow and it’s freezing (-6 degrees celsius). This kind if weather makes my body disagree with itself. My joints don’t wanna work together so I can’t work on the computer for a long time. If I do, I might damage my joints and might not be able to game again like I did. Right now, I’m also having problems again with a neck injury from last year. I can’t watch a flickering screen with fast-moving pictures. Now it’s not a choice anymore if I want to go game or not. I can’t, even though I want to very much. It’s good that there are things I can do without a computer. Reading books and writing are excellent. But that’s why it’s quiet here. I will come back and write more. I promise :)

Level 20!

I have finally reached level 20 in League of Legends which allows me to buy runes and finally be awesome. Because of the team I’m playing with, I’ve adapted the support role in most of these games, with Sona being my favorite. I also tried Janna, since she was free last week, but I think Sona is better in her role as support, healing, giving armor, damage or movement speed when needed. Her ultimate is good in team fights when they’re all grouped together. I stunned 5 enemy champions with one ult last night (so proud *sniff*) and we managed to kill three of them. So for now, Sona will be my most used champion.

Now I’ve to get myself to level 30 as fast as I can, because they wanna play ranked with me. Apparently I’m that good, but I don’t believe them.
