I bought the boxed set of One Night Ultimate werewolf to play with my family, they had a blast. My grandma didn't quite get the game, often messing up roles, telling us info that proved she was werewolf, and once even voted for the other werewolf (she was one too) to break the tie that lost them the game. My favorite was the time she was troublemaker, and wouldn't divulge any info about her role, then celebrated post game that nobody figured out she was the troublemaker so she must have done good lol.

Heres the best. First game, my brother says "I am seer, and I center peeked 2 werewolves." We called bullshit, and voted him; he was werewolf. Last game of the night, my brother says "I am seer and I center peeked 2 werewolves. Seriously, again. I know nobody will believe me." I actually did believe him, he said "If it didn't work the first time would I try it again?!?" 2 people voted him out instead of voting right like we agreed. He was seer and there was 2 werewolves in the center lol.

My dad was the best werewolf, 100% winrate as wolf.

Was a lot of fun, for sure. The game is so much better at a fast paced 5 minute to discuss rather than our 36 hour heavily dissecting every possible action. You can get away more when theres a time limit to discuss thats minutes long.

What was that bee game we were playing? That was pretty unique and fun

I did it over like 2 hours the other night when my family fell asleep early, maybe even longer lol. I drafted Bittertide hydra, it was like an MVP for me actually, hard removal is pretty rare until you get to the higher levels, and just getting in that damage seemed to go a long way.

I went 7-3 (with the bonus win it gives you), lost because of my arena inexperience (what are the chances Priest has the potion of madness for my gastropod? .... oh. Pretty good it turns out). Not bad. Got 155 gold, a pack and some handful of dust.

Excited for expansion news!

I was hyped for DBZ, but after playing it... I feel like its too shallow. Like, I feel like in the end, the roster is gonna be so fucking samey that it won't have longevity. I get the hype, I was hyped too, but I truly think Marvel Infinite is gonna be the deeper game, and DBZ hype will die out within a year. I hope to be wrong.

Note I know nothing about DBZ so maybe I am wrong, but every character in that demo played the same, and I see most DBZ characters tend to look the same (fly around and throw fireballs), so I hope to be wrong.

So, since I dont know shit about DBZ, trunks didn't have me hyped. I don't really like 3d games, so while Geese was cool (and blew my friends mine, who guessed it when he said his line, even though we dont play 3d games) I don't really plan to play tekken 7. Neither do I plan to play that Arika bullshit.

I got hyped watching Blazblue, but that game is way too fucking complicated for my life at this time. That being said, I know jack shit about the crossover, but me and my friend both were hyped to try it.

As boring as it may be, my hypest reveal was actually Abigail, which while we all knew it was coming, he looks pretty cool.


I'd put Jedah at second, even though he's not on your list
I'm most hyped on Fantasy Strike out of everything I saw actually.

Pledged to invest 2,500 on fig.co for fantasy strike today, I played it at the PSX experience last december, and last weekend at evo, and it was night and day in graphics; and they still have more improvement coming. I think I can make my money back easy on that one. Monique got mad at me though, lol. Oh well. I think its a decent investment. 110k copies sold to make my money back, 220k copies sold to double my money to 5k. Thats so easy to hit.

I find it cute that JasonC is playing this gremlin angle. Not sure if he wants me to die, or him, or what angle it is. Assassin doesn't make sense, I have the mark of clarity, so he's not trying to get me killed. I dont see a role that wants to die themselves, so that's out. I guess that just means he wants to undermine peoples trust in me, knowing that I generally take charge these games, which makes me worry he might be a penis.

I almost wish I had switched him, like I had originally planned, but in the end I didn't. So your role is the same, Jason. Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a thousand needles in my eye.

Well you got me halfway there. Removed roles not in use:

Quote
Marks - All players start the Night with a Mark of Clarity. At a certain point during the Night , all players learn what Mark they currently hold. Players can only hold one Mark at a time, with the latest Mark received overriding all other Marks.

Villagers
Priest - Gives themselves and another player the Mark of Clarity (Mark has no effect).
Marksman - Looks at the Mark of one player and the role of another player.
Pickpocket - Exchanges Mark with another player and views their new Mark.
Gremlin - Swaps two player's roles or Marks.

Penises:
Penis - Knows the identity of the other Penises. Can give a non-Penis player a Mark of the Penis (Marked player is on the Penis team, but can still do their role's action).
Tatsu Penis - Knows the identity of the other Penises. Can give a non-Penis player a Mark of Fear (Marked player cannot perform a Night action, unless their action is before players view their Mark).



Third Party:
Assassin - Gives a player the Mark of the Assassin (if the Marked player is killed, the Assassin wins). After giving the Mark of the Assassin, learns the identity of the Apprentice Assassin.
Apprentice Assassin - Knows the identity of the Assassin. If the Assassin is killed, the Apprentice Assassin wins. If there is no Assassin, gives a player the Mark of the Assassin (if the Marked player is killed, the Apprentice Assassin wins).

So 4 villager, 2 penis dudes, and 2 third party.

I'll start. I'm Gremlin. I swapped 2 people roles.

Knights of the Frozen Throne. Instead of adding a new death knight class, each of the 9 heroes are corrupted and become death knights, with a new Hero Card for each one. They act like Jaraxxus, but don't modify your existing health: they have a powerful battlecry, add armor, and then alter your hero power. The one announced was Hunter (Deathstalker Rexxar). Its a 6 mana, gain 5 armor, deal 2 damage to all enemy minions, and your hero power becomes "Build a Beast." You discover a beast, then discover a second beast; then you add their stats and mana cost, and add it to your hand as a card. So, for instance, you could combine stonetusk boar (1 mana 1/1 charge) with Bloodfen Raptor (2 mana 3/2) to get a 3 mana 4/3 charge beast card in your hand. You can discover any beast up to 5 mana (thats neutral or hunter) and then make some really awesome beasts.

Also, Lifesteal is going to be prominent (everytime they deal damage, heal you that much) including a priest spell for 2 mana, deal 1 damage to all minions (with lifesteal).  Deathrattle is coming back big, so stuff like Umbra and Priest Quest will be solid.

Overall, I dunno how its going to shake out. They seem like maybe non impactful enough, or maybe too good, but I like the space they're in.

For single player content, theres 9 missions for free. Completing them earns you 1 of the 9 deathknight hero cards (random), and 3 packs. So... yeah should be sweet to experiment.

Expansion leaks were pretty tight this year, but the chinese official website leaked some stuff about 12 hours early. Should be something like "Knights of the Frozen Throne"



https://fat.gfycat.com/MenacingMelodicGlassfrog.webm


All the hearthstone classes are basically undead versions of themselves. Per Lore, when The Lich King kills a person, he can raise them to fight for him. Here everyone has the blue eyes, indicating they actually are under the lich king control. So I expect deathrattles/undead/ice to play a big theme here.

Whats unknown is if the Lich King is Arthas, or Bolvar Fordragon(yeah, the pally legendary). In the story, Arthas has always been the iconic lich king, but in World of Warcraft the players raid against Arthas and die, only to be saved by Tirion, who kills Arthas/Breaks the curse, and then was about to become the new Lich King (there must always be a lich king). Instead, Bolvar stepped up and asked for him to take the burden, but swore everyone to secrecy. So, theres the chance that maybe its Bolvar the new Lich King. Or, knowing hearthstone, its an alternate universe where Each of the Hero classes is the new lich king. Who knows.

It should be fun. One thing I expect, is a rarity shake up. They're introducing no duplicate legendary openings, They just doubled gold we earn for 2 weeks, and they alluded to something this expansion... I forsee a lot of class legendaries coming in this set. As well, we're going to get back some Single Player Content; not full on adventures, but still adventure like content along side each full expansion to set the story and hopefully award some cards/packs.

Really excited to see what comes tonight, at the announcement (7 PM Pacific)

Theres no length, and its legal to leave at any time due to employement laws. Its just a shitty thing to do. It wasn't really lazy, its just my old boss got a new job there, and when I contacted him he was like "oh shit, this is perfect for you" but you know, they're not gonna match something that was going for 2 weeks+ already in speed, of course. It just happened to come in at the wrong time lol

Heres what happened since yesterday.

Wake up, talk with the new company, get the offer (5k less than Im making now). Email back asking questions (start date, how long I have to accept, etc). Contacted my old Manager, and saw that he was now at Adobe. He tells me he may have some really exciting opportunities for me, where I could work remote. When I informed him of my offer, he basically says "Well I can offer you 100% work remotely and way more salary." But then didn't hear back after that. Disney says they are slowed down and wont begin my next process until next week at the earliest.

Tell my manager at IBM that I am leaving for outside opportunities. Put in my official 2 weeks notice. Talk with another old manager, who basically is with a bunch of my old coworkers at a new company, doing updated versions of everything I've been working on for 8 years: right up my alley. Make plans to talk with them, they say I can work fully remote if I work there.

Talk with Blizzard. Was really awesome, their phone service is narrated by Deckard Cain, explain the situation and how I have an offer waiting, but I am really intrigued by the opportunity at Blizzard because it would be a dream company to work for. She says it may help push it through faster.

Talk with the original company I got the offer from, they asked why I was curious about how long I had to sign, I explained how I had other opportunities I was still exploring and while I really liked their company, these were kind of possibilities that were unique. He asked if there was anything they can do with the offer package to make me accept right away. I told him I liked what they were offering, but that Disney is Disney, the other company was offering me tons more money, and that I didn't expect them to be able to match that offer. He again asks if theres anything he can do to make me sign right now... so I asked if he could match my current salary. Its end of day for him so he says he will see what he can do, but if he can get that match would I be willing to sign right away? I say yes.

Phew. Sit on it all night, agonizing. Do I take the safe, but also pretty awesome opportunity that is right there, or do I hold out for potential bigger payout? Am I selling myself short? One of my friends thinks so, that I am in demand and I can get more. But I just got done going through weeks of failed interviews, so its not as easy. With kids and a family, I dont think I have the luxury to really get greedy. The only bad choice I can make is to hold out and then end up with nothing. Mentally plan to take the offer even if they can't match.

Next day, the other company that wants me to work remote contacts me. Says theres no immediate position for me, but would like to consider me for full time down the road, or as a consultant in the next few months if they manage to acquire Home Depot. Home Depot, for what its worth, is a current customer of mine at IBM that is looking for a new solution, and is possibly migrating to this other company. They are trying to negotiate gaining the source code, and if they can do that I might have a good shot at consulting for them to get things going. Anyway, its clear they're not going to move at a pace to counter the existing offer.

Talk with the guy offering me the position, he says they agreed to match my salary that I am making now (5k increase from the original offer). I agree that this works for me, and that I will honor my word, and have just signed and sent in my acceptance letter.

So, looks like my fate is sealed. Im excited, but now may have to live with the regret of what could have been.

Technically I start on the 23rd (negotiated to start after Evo weekend since Im going for sat/sunday this year) so I have some time, but its pretty shitty to back out after signing the offer letter, even if its completely legal.

So yeah. Been a big week for me.
