SOTA - Why I like it

Things I like about Shroud of the Avatar:

1. There's no hard skill-cap or level-cap. So every time you play, you're improving your character bit by bit.
2. No subscription model. Pay once to play.
3. Everyone has the option not to PVP.
4. Single player online mode means you can farm the whole day as much as you like, whenever you like, without worrying about people stealing your kills or your resource nodes.
5. True sandbox game like Ultima Online. You play according to your own needs and goals and do not need to follow a scripted path like World of Warcraft.
6. Classless system. All skills can be learned by everyone. You choose what skills you want to specialise in and how well you want to master it.
7. Deep and complex crafting system where you can choose what stats a weapon or piece of armor has by using different crafting materials.
8. Officially sanctioned real money trading means you can sell your virtual goods for real money to other players.

SOTA - 1,000,000 gold coins farmed!

I finally farmed my one millionth gold coin today at Serpent's Spine Foothills. In the process, I reached Adventurer Level 77, leveled 2 skills to GM level and wore out innumerable two-handed swords, long bows, and armor. I started playing the game with this character 2 months ago in early Nov 2016.

Star Citizen - 2946 Aggressor badge

Woot, completed wave 18 of Vanduul Swarm with Jax, Cheesified, and Pyre, and got awarded the 2946 Aggressor forum badge. I flew a SuperHornet with 3x Pyroburst and 1 S4 Laser. Cheese flew a Vanguard, Jax flew a Hornet and Pyre also flew a SuperHornet with default loadout for all guns except missiles (he used Rattlers).

Happy New Year 2017!

This year is the year of the Rooster! Here's wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!

2016 was a good year for me. During Star Citizen's Nov anniversary sale, I managed to snag the Javelin destroyer which I had been eyeing since 2014. I also achieved the Solo Zen Master achievement for Starcraft 2, and with it, the awesome looking achievement icon. For DCUO, I completed rounds 1-10 of the Oan Sciencells Survival Mode event and was awarded the title of 2016 Oan Battler. I was also favored by RNGesus and managed to get both El's Sunstone Bulwark and the House of El Warsuit back styles for my villain. Here's looking forward to a great year ahead for 2017!
