The Past Week:
The Future of the Blog
With Tree of Savior turning out to be almost everything I wanted from a game — outside the typical MMO launch issues, of course — I’m going to be dedicating a large chunk of my free time to it (which is saying a lot because I had vowed never to play an MMO again). This means I’ll have less time for PAD and thus less time for this blog. I still want to hit 900 reasonably fast so what time I have budgeted for PAD will be spent actually playing the game instead of blogging about it. In a way, it will pretty much be the same as the month of March was; I still intend to continue the main regular posts (godfest help, REM reviews, aggregate JP list, ranking dungeon prep), but the more superfluous stuff will be discontinued.
Next Week and Beyond:
- I’m totally out of the loop as far as JP, again. I guess the current thing going on is the next iteration of PAD Academy which is probably why we didn’t get new uevos. It really seems like they’re dragging their feet in this regard, but special REMs, GFEs and MP cards are where the money is. I’m still hopeful for awoken 3K and uevo Sengoku later this year, but it may come later than I would’ve liked. In other news, it looks like more buffs are incoming.
- It’s 10x on NA so it’s time to go full hermit mode. Since it’s only a week and I have to split time with ToS, the 297 count will be lower this time, but I also want to hit 200 total 297s this event so I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to budget my time.
- It’s been a very long time since NA got new uevos. It’s starting to get a little annoying, but at the very least they’ve thrown us enough toys to keep us distracted. Here’s hoping they save any changes for after the ranking dungeon; it would be a huge mistake to change the meta after players have already invested so much time and money into getting a top score. I’m referring mainly to the 8.8 awakening buffs.
