Clueless is the point.
Update on my week (Druidsfire):
I started trying to count the number of names she drops during her streams. But I'd be interrupted by something outrageous that I needed to record so never got a count. This must be impressing a few but mostly it must just confirm that she has the power and influence over them. It's all about showing off her connections.
Her journalist credential get her into these events to make these, networking. Paul McGann pops up on screen with a follow and she has met David Tennant, her kin name is all Dr Who stuff. An out of work call centre "phone monkey" (her quote) groupie. She thinks these connections are impressive so can't entertain a thought that they are not to us.
As far as Cord and Corey Olsen she's there because, well how could they cope without her?
People in her channel have given her the best of advice for ages but her body language shows complete indifference.
Concerning Cord: "His knowledge of the game is not as awesome as ours"
of Sapience: "Sapience taught me how to troll Muhahaha"
"Oh I'm happy to help get people banned" With a smug grin. "done it many times".
She "gave him a screen shot of her mini's skill bar and "rotations" to help him that's all". A rotation that pulls a single mob with a 10m radius AE, because to her the damage value is all she compares. In Mordor (level 115 starting it) she didn't use flop, anthems, mainhand LI, fear, song of distraction nor bubble. The last two not on her tool bar. Can't even set up the UI properly, remapped DEL to mailbox. Once or twice I've been in the stream channel, suggested she have the morale and power bars showing on targets to avoid stray pulls, told her of the next object binding to make pickup quest easier. But it met with a brick wall.
3 months ago she had discovered fear and had been given some pointer that the stun on piercing cry was key. Stuffed all her merge points into the red tree though. When Wayward Playne offered her the "Sharing a Story" trait that is the making of a landscape mini, She only had her pathetic goal of a quest boots upgrade in her sights and totally tuned out the advice. Pure selfishness.
When Wayward suggested they got to vales it was I'm going to Skarn (her goal). For maybe 4 hours she kept her in tow to do all the damage. Solo no hit over 10k, she was standing at one point killing 2 mobs in turn and by the time she had healed up after one kill the second had respawned. Take on two and she would just die over and over. She is having a miserable time playing this game without these pawns to ponce off.
They even discussed the policing of the Cord stream and thanked Wayward for the times she helped. So any question her Awesome understanding could not fathom was immediately a target for timeouts because Cord could not possibly have a better understanding than herself.
She now has just started using War Anthem, deed for it is progressing now, just.
Chromite showed her the Deeping Wall strat and she was tweeting and stroking the cat as if she was above all of it. Someone else is doing all the dirty work for her. She did her OWN laundry this week! That brought of a few profanities, a tweet also apparently. [ Chromite: you'll have over taken me on Main /played time now for sure - but wasn't Roxi a breathe of fresh air for an official stream, maybe still hope. ]
I guess many on her streams aren't actually focused on the body language. It's all too obvious if you can bare to look. I doubt she has the time to look at the stream after to see what her gob has run off on. 100+ hours of kilt making? Hours to stream the lonely mountain band because it gets her streaming content, no matter. For self interest and more names to drop. Sweet as pie she is. What would she do if asked to play a tune on the live stream? Where is HesSparticus?
She does dredge the forums for things to say on her show. Once she had seen something about how raiders see more of the bugs because they are at the cutting edge and it was "Her" piece of wisdom to the plebs on her stream an hour later.
And then the stupid lump Imbued. Using what? Her Awesome understanding of the game and totally fucked herself over. Absolutely and totally. Not the gumption to have levelling LIs to provide relics and IXP. Has those Mordor Whale package relics though, that were toast on reaching the second hub. She didn't even reference her own guide "LIs for dummies". She has no gold an no clue how to make it. 500 LP over many months can make a real difference to keeping pace with the grinds but too many years spending on store shit and the pot is basically dry. One view of a her resources saw little gold, no more MC and very slim pickings, I doubt she has reached any rep to ever do a daily. MT silver coin 1.
But she just can't believe that this struggle to go from one pathetic spawn to another nearly dying is any of her fault. She is thinking it's all down to the valar package just not doing it for her and why she has these suggestions for Cord the puppy to hand on. The theory-craft, mini-maxing and rotations are just terms that are beyond her. The valared mini on Corey's server hasn't done the explorer deed that includes the party tree. So no Crystals and Reclamations coming from there. Is that why at 100 he needs a pocket healer as he's followed her same path of only epics done? Are his Lore streams going to dry up at the Black gate?
Her main champ using offhands with a rep deed panel showing most at friendly so just hasn't had any of this grind we all do for any of these 12 years of playing. Her epic quest completion deeds do look like that is all she's actually done in the game and why her characters are in such a mess and why she is just leading Dwinstrel into just the same mess. Except he has the unlimited MC to fix a lot later on, ILIs. She has some character panels that don't have the full stats showing checked. But she does display determination, to repeat the same failed strategy over and over and over and over. Her Champ main has a Discipline virtue in single digits. Does she know what mobs do tactical damage even? Champ with a minute CD on fervour generator skill when the rest of us are spamming it, 12 s duration 10 seconds CD. To her it must be an emergency skill. If only she would turn on "other's damage" it might make her see how she compares.
So why now is she actually trying to progress her characters for the first time. Everything is about her Friday with Cordovan and to a lesser extent Corey Olsen. She literally moved servers to be there with them, neither were on her main server, is why she is so adept at server Vault transfers.
The job lead of 3 months ago, she is only now chasing up. Because it didn't fit in. "Fridays are Inviolate" due to "Playing with my Friend" he's too busy to play with her any other time. Grudgingly excepting it was his job to talk to us first.
As for Sapience? Certainly makes for an interesting third party. Oh God she made a big thing about him moving to Extra Life and not being sacked at all. And how none of us understand... PR doesn't allow your PR guy to be sacked, good grief. Have to say Cord runs rings around these two as far as intellect goes. He maybe too long under the Turbine/SSG yoke to be saved but maybe he can learn from someone not so utterly deluded and actually have an answer for people without these harpies censoring what they can't comprehend.
That drive to replace the heating was actually instigated by another of the stream mods, not herself. Appear on the stream with two hats and layers of clothes and bunch of minions who suck up her every word and go on and on about buying all these space/fan heaters. Yeah it maybe all innocent but it's from someone who is a basic narcissist at best and can only raise herself up by pushing others down. She is seriously running out of numbers.
All of this she has up for all the world to see. I have all the quotes above Archived
Just who will actually go look? Arnenna "I haven't looked myself but..." Lover boy Cord "Want to hang him upside down and shake him... wearing his kilt" - It's still a bloody skirt.
oh and the final quote: "Family, FUCK 'EM. Not literally though. That would be weird" "not from West Virginia"
I wouldn't mind her if she was just pulling down a few hangers on but to be doing it to the CM and Lore Prof is unforgiveable. Can't they see that showing the epic quest off so utterly badly is harming any kind of game promotion. Are those of us there just thinking at which point they are going to fuck it up and that's all that holds us there.
That her delusion makes her think she is doing them good. Too much. But she keeps saying: you don't need to know more than the basics as landscape is face roll. But for her it just isn't, if not well over level.
SSG: she must provide them with a good few bankable whales along the way. And the dev devotion, their battered egos a boost. They can't all be hoodwinked can they?
