Paragon V 43 Misadventures

Yesterday was psyched when the game, Paragon which got a major visual update and characters adjusted, however as I played, complications ensued.

First the lag was UGLY. And by ugly I mean the character’s stalled, attacked seconds later after I pressed buttons. Even worse, when I backed or moved, there was a jump cut, and I was in a position I wasn’t supposed to be.  Very frustrating.

In my first game, my team didn’t really play well together. I was support (Phase), and I was ready to test out my utility deck which was about healing the team, wards (for enemy reveals), and using my kit for more heals.

It was comically awful, as I was destroyed several times, and lag didn’t help, but we made it to win. It took that late game build and  the team learning to work together.  My heals, and their damage was the right combination.

I played another game (Zinx), hoping the lag was done, but the game crashed…twice. I immediately logged back in, each time, of course, to complete my match. but I STILL got an AFK (away from keyboard) AKA you abandoned the team warning. Needless to say it was time to stop playing the game. This was disappointing as well as frustrating.

So this morning, Paragon developers puts out a patch for the game. This will hopefully make it a bit more playable than last night. I’ll test it later this evening. Despite its flaws, its a fun game, and it looks AMAZING.  Paragon team don’t let me down today. I’m all excited to try again.

Red Star Athena

This is me playing Smite with a friend. The game mode is joust, which is a 3 vs 3 match.   I’m playing with a friend (he’s playing Medusa), and it was fun.  Athena is a guardian class character, which means she’s all about being tanky, and using crowd control to draw the enemy’s attention to her.

The build I made is nearly all physical protections with aura to help the team, and hinder the enemy.

Enjoy.
