Been a while since I used this blog. I usually use the 'In the life of Iggy' blog because real life took more hold than online life. That's changed quite a bit. Now, Team Fortress 2, as fun as it, has sort of lost it's touch for me a little. Maybe it was the Robotic Boogaloo, where you think it's a real update but it's just hats. Don't get me wrong, it was great, but there was nothing new, and I feel like I've done everything possible in TF2. I've done Trolldiering, reflect kills, Facestabs, Cannon-Jumping, Samurai-Soldier, Samurai-Demo, High-Speed Fishing, basically all the fun you could ever want in TF2, and I'm only 40 hours away from 1,000 hours into this game! I need a break. I already took a short break in a single player survival world and did a run through of the game in about week. Started off punching trees and finished with the Nether-Star. That's basically a complete game. Unless you go after achievements. But riding a minecart for 1K? That's crazy expensive! Shooting a skele from 500 (or was it 50?) blocks away? By the time I get that far, it's despawned! So, I hopped back into TF2 today, I still wasn't feeling it, no matter how satisfying the mid-air reflect kills were...
So I then considered doing another run through with Tekkit but Tekkit is such a mentally straining way of playing Minecraft, and eventually you hit a point where you say, "There's so much I COULD do, but why should I? I'm already a god of mass destruction of the landscape! What else do I need?" So I don't think that has probability. But that then reminded me of one more Minecraft play-through I used to do: JRCraft. It was a fun time, I was an admin at some point, great times were had, I ended up having to take my leave (Or I got demoted if you ask the right people) and stopped playing, because Minecraft wasn't doing it anymore. I logged into the server on my birthday for old time's sake and I ended staying, because I had new-found purpose! When it reached the point where I had a fishing city at the edge of the coast and I had even built the ocean to suit my needs of fishing, JRCraft added JRLevels, and that ended it for me. I felt like I was wasting my time leveling up these levels! I thought it was crap! So I switched to TF2 about 24/7. At some point, it struck me! It was called the RPG world, it was always planned to be a bit more RPG like, but at the time it was still being slowly updated to reach it's goals, I completely steam-rolled JRLevels because I hadn't realized the WHOLE BLOODY POINT of the world itself!
===FOR THOSE TOO LAZY TO READ THE IMPORTANT STUFF IS HERE==
So, now I come around to the important questions. I'm really considering logging into JR and having more crazy adventures with my old pals. Although if I recall JR got a fresh batch of players, so it'll basically be starting over. I don't even know if the staff team is the same! So, what I want to know is what's new since the JRLevels update, and what should I expect if I were to log in sometime soon? What should I do first, new plugins, that sort of thing. Any new rules would be nice to know, too! I do check the forums frequently so I'm already away of Jamie doing some school stuff, and congrats about that! It sounds like you'll be a techno-wizard when you get out of there! And my plan is to build a city in the sky! Or maybe on-top of an exceptionally high mountain. I was inspired by the zeppelins used in the Shadow of Israphel series (Which I am re-watching currently). The idea is to have the whole town be nothing but walk-ways connecting buildings and homes. Oh, and every home should be a airship or like a building with propellers. Even though building a city in the sky provides no bonuses, it wouldn't be the RPG world (RPG = Role Playing Game, in case you're new to video games) without a bit of Role-Playing! Although JRLevels sure made it harder to do stuff like mining without using up a week of your life, but I got time to spare!
Also, I wouldn't mind getting Citizen + back if that's still a rank. I mean, I don't need it, all it gave was Hats and Mob-Disguises, but the + gives makes me feel special! I lost it after I was premium for that week when JRLevels was in testing. You know what'd also be cool? Knowing which member has been with JR actively for as long as they've joined. I mean, Jamie probably top ranks, but any way to fuel my narcissism, ya know? I'm a JR Veteran and I should get a diamond castle because I'm so super special and I was an admin and even an op for a minute plz don't ban meh 0mg hax!!1!!!!!!!1! Sorry about that.
On a side note, are people still crazy about being a staff member? Because that used to bug me so much. Everyone thought they were saints and deserved to be an admin... just like me when I was going through the ranks... I was so immature. Every year I look back one year and say, "Wow, was I immature! I sure am glad I'm mature now!" And then I look back and remember I said that last year, too. Agh... memories... Okay that's it. If you read all this my god are a patient person because I get really distracted really easily. And I also like to tell people more than they need to know. But that's because I never really see people anymore, so whenever I do, I like to crazy and tell them more than they need to know. Like I just did.
Okay bye, thanks for reading! (I didn't re-read this for obvious reasons, (Too long!) but if you find a spelling error or grammar mistake, let me know!)
