Why I dislike guilds

Guilds. This term irks me so. I have a dislike for guilds, but I should say why I dislike guilds so much. And by proxy why I am not fond of guild leaders and the new guild communities, and this should clear up why I am not fond of guilds.

Let’s start. I’m OnyChaos by the way. :3

Disclaimer: This is me, venting/ranting. And it is crazy that I have to add such a thing. Take what you see with a heavy gain of salt. I’m just telling you what I think and how I feel.

The Dragon Knights

There was a time where I loved guilds, and let’s go back a few years to where it started and why I loved being in guilds. 2017 is not the year. 2011 is not it.

2009 to 2010 is the year. Back before people were super sensitive or hyper-emotional, I was a part of a fun guild called “The Dragon Knights”, and this was an adventure quest worlds guild run by Dragorath and skydragonv1.

This guild had everything that made a guild, a guild at the time. It had a web chat room, forums, website, and a good community to talk with. It was a fun place. You share memes, progress, and talk to other users on forums. It wasn’t like today where you walk on eggshells, which is petty. 2009 to 2010 was great for me.

The Dragon Knights were everything that I wanted in a guild, but like all things, it has to end.

What happened to The Dragon Knights?

The guild disbanded. Given that most users’ social media was Adventure Quest Worlds, the game’s content was starting to get stale and repeating. And with flash MMORPG also being somewhat laggy on some computers back then, and life called.

During the close to the final days, there were mentions of guild wars and nothing of note. And when the guild died, I left the guild but now raising my standards for guilds because The Dragon Knights left me with a good impression.

A guild leader that is not overly emotional and very sane, and would never make a big deal out of nothing.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis review

Hmm, Phantasy Star Online 2. A fun game pre-Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. Now that Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis has some more content, I figured I would talk about it again. And another reason to blog about games and talking about Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis is very nice.

Looking back, I never made a review for this game, and while back then I love talking about the game. I think I can give some thoughts on this MMORPG.

What’s Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis?

Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis and not to be confused with Phantasy Star Online 2, is an open-world MMORPG. And I will say that in Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis current state, the game is nothing like Phantasy Star Online 2 the base game.

New genesis is made for the casual players who found base Phantasy Star Online 2 to be too hard. And listen, I get it. A lot of players as they say, “sweat” in that game. And I get it you are a master at Phantasy Star Online 2.

It is good for sega and casual players for making this change. It’s how I see it.

December update log

Time to make a “fun” blog post, which is an update log at the end of the day. Let’s get going. Take this with a grain of salt.

Twitter

Ah, the land of the dead, the place I came back to because I had made a dummy account but went back to my old account because I felt guilty about doing that. And it’s more or less the same but now with ghosting? It’s whatever. If there is someone I want to remove from my account, I will just block them.

There are not many people to speak with on Twitter, and even post covid. People have stopped using Twitter or rather moved on. It’s almost funny, those same people (Who I won’t name) who I held to such a high standard don’t even say a word to me now.

So have I been doing / or what’s been happening on Twitter?

  1. Been talking to Xjazzy and Pippi
  2. been posting update posts on my fan game
  3. thinking of soft blocking accounts that are just not active.
  4. Posting updates and blog posts
  5. thinking of muting some users.
  6. Got a direct message from someone asking me a personal thing.
  7. I Learned Twitter got a new CEO and I feel this may bring in a new round of bans.

Facebook

Now that I have no reason to use Facebook as much anymore and post covid 2020 things that happened and given that I don’t talk to anyone there, I thought about wiping the account and just making a new account and just following some people.

Not much here to say, to be honest. I will see what I will do. At the most, I will change my Facebook profile.

Veredilia The Sacred Forest CGS 2021 demo

I have been putting this off for a good while. And I want to share my thoughts because why not. I like the first demo way back then, and I still feel the same, somewhat. This demo got entered in an indie game showcase called CGS. (Chao Games showcase)

well-timed screenshot. I’m keeping this in.

In the second demo, you get a complete stage with a boss at the end. Three playable characters, and you get a normal/hard mode and some other features. When you start the game, you can pick one of the three characters and see their stats. Once someone is selected, you will enter the hub world where you can play around with the character or go to the act.

For this post, I will be using Vancouver The Kitsune on normal mode. She is a good character for exploring stages. She has a charge jump, a double jump that floats up and down, a dive kick, and great healing. As a defense base character, she is good. As an offensive character, she has a poor range with some enemies who move a lot. But she can make up with the moveset she has. It feels ready for close range. She is better as the defensive character. That’s what I think, her speed is average, but she is fun.

WordPress spam bots are dumb

So, as you probably know or don’t know. I like comments. They are pleasant to read, sometimes. Other times they are not nice, but what can you do? Why I’m starting with this? I wanted to see if allowing anyone to comment without a WordPress account would be a good idea and bring in more comments? I know most users don’t have a WordPress account. And being able to comment without a WordPress account. May lead to more comments in theory.

So here are my results from the test I did. And it’s pretty much how I thought it would go. So Here are the spam comments I got from bots. Some of them are funny, and others are just sad. And sometimes, it is from the same account / IP, but the email and link are different.

These comments are more or less the same, asking if you can recommend something, ignoring the post, but these comments are in the trash as clearly spam. I have to wonder what these people get for creating spambots to post spam. I guess it’s a way to fill up comments with junk, like Tumblr bots used to do back then.

And then the other comments are just weird, like asking for adult toys to recommend or what kind of vape can someone could recommend. And at that point, it’s just bots spamming things of nonsense or whatnot

And I know you can turn on the “Users must be registered and logged in to comment.“ to stop the bot, and at the same time, users who don’t want to make an account can’t comment. It’s a double edge sword that keeps bots away but users as well. But this can also be used by bad actors. But there are some settings in place, like “Comment must be manually approved.” or “Comment author must have a previously approved comment.”

While not an important post. I thought it would be funny to share this blog post. Since bots are pretty wild on here, if you turn off “Users must be registered and logged in to comment.”. And since bots generally use similar keywords and words in each post marked for spam, it’s easy to disallow comment keys or disallow specific keywords.

That’s all for this post, have a good day/night.

Genshin Impact – Shadows amidst snowstorms

Time to talk about the genshin impact event. Shadows amidst snowstorms, which is a fun event. You can build a snowman, get good rewards. All the event mini-games will offer up points which you can spend in the shop during the event.

This event is mainly for Albedo, because of the weapon you can get that Albedo scales off of DEF. If you have or planning on getting Albedo, it is best to act now, at the time of this post, you have 14 days to do everything that is currently unlocked. If you do not care about the weapon, at least do the event for the items you can get. Mora, primogems, weapon materials, and character materials for leveling up. Exp for characters and weapons.

==Event==

“Born of the snow.” is a simple thing. You build a snowman when a new level unlocks but to build a snowman, you need to do “Dragonspine Special Training.” which has three parts.

Agility Training is a racecourse where you move from point A to point B while getting coins and getting there as fast to get the gold medal and snowman part.

Tracker Training is an event where you must look for and melt 8 ice crystal piles in the target area or the large yellow circle. Some ice piles may spawn enemies or boars. Amber / Klee is good since they have no cooldown on fire damage.

Combat Training is just here to see how long you can last the cold and enemies if you are careless. This mode has lures if ignored. They will raise the rate of sheer cold. Which maxed out, you will begin to take damage due to sheer cold, which is like every second of damage.

You will want to use a good healer/friend. Or a scarlet Quartz on the lures to give yourself a buff.

==Event requirements and details==

To join the event, you must have done the following.

  1. Reach Adventure Rank (AR) 20 or higher.
  2. Complete the Archon Quest “For a Tomorrow Without Tears.”
  3. Complete Albedo’s Story Quest “Traveler Observation Report.”
  4. Joel’s “Lost in the Snow” Quest.

Event gameplay start / end date.

Start: 11/25/2021 10:00 | End: 12/13/2021 03:59

Event shop start / end date

Start: 11/25/2021 10:00 | End: 12/20/2021 03:59

For more details, refer to the official genshin impact page here: https://genshin.mihoyo.com/en/news/detail/17233. Or refer to in-game about the event.

November and December log

Ah, yes. It’s time to make some changes that will be better for me. I have to put myself first and learn to say no. And some people or a person won’t like this, but oh well. This is an update log of stuff I want to do/plan to do and whatnot.

Things I want to do

Update on games I’m making.

Sonicvania + boss rush update

So, the boss rush fan game is still going to be updated. I have gone ahead and started on a SonicVania standalone game mode within the boss rush fan game, and how that can be unlocked will be a secret

The basic core engine for SonicVania is 5 % done. I think once I get 30% done, I will release it with an update. And on that note, I’m gonna work on the next boss as that is the holdup for the update and I need to add a cut scene. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. The second boss is the death egg robot, and I need to make an effect if a player tries to get behind the boss.

Controller Support is gonna be fun for main content and bonus content. You can still use a keyboard.

My thoughts

I guess I have one more than about Witching Hour I want to add, and it’s more how I personally feel is all. How I been feeling what I been thinking and what I want to do. And this will be a fairly long post.

Editor’s note: This is a rant or a vent or just both. Something to get off my chest. And I have to make this clear that no one is at fault here. Sure, I don’t like how some members act, and things could be better. But no one is at fault. I’m letting off steam.

How have I been feeling.

Guild has been interesting when I first joined or got asked to join and it was a fun time and was before Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. And there were rough spots pre-NGS and post NGS but I didn’t mind it. Or rather, I ignored it. I met some chill people, you could goof off with, and being a member was fun. Then I got asked to become an officer for the guild (just like in Midnight owls in elsword) way back then, even though, I was happy being a regular member and did not care to be an officer.

And being an officer, it was not so bad and ignoring other things. As an officer, I just help urgent quests and have to watch chat when users start to become stupid. As you can see, I don’t do much. Being an officer feels like babysitting but you get paid with disrespect, being ignored, or having to deal with stupid things.

And it always feels like you are walking on eggshells with some users. But as an officer, and forgive me. This shit blows! Witching hour feels too pc with some members. Someone getting offended, I can’t really speak my mind because other guilds or people may read this? It is why didn’t want to become an officer.

Maybe it is the lack of content, the guild feeling samey to me, just being here, some users won’t listen to advice or will be offended. Having to babysit some users or speak for users who want to do something but never speak up or even ignore some people, and don’t even have manners to respond sometimes.
