Work silliness, but X-Wing coming up :-)

Well, yet another application submitted and resume sent off…  We’ll see what happens.  It’s a job with the Campus central IT organization, and is in a Management line…  I have my MS now and have insisted that my current title be changed to reflect the current duties.  Initially it looked good, but that was almost a month ago.  Got the veiled “no” and “what if we do this instead” ….  But essentially, the standard ignore it and hope it goes away.  So, I am not seeing any choice but to accept any offer that comes along and let the light of the bridges I am burning behind me light my way forward.

Been playing Pokemon, but it is not nearly as interesting to me as Ingress.  I see a LOT of the most common ones: Rats, Pigeons, Sparrows being the most common ones.  Maybe I am simply not playing it enough, but there just isn’t all that much there as a game for me.  Well, that and I am REALLY busy in my real job, so…

Played Armada over the weekend and got smashed…  Figured out a LOT honestly, and I think I’ll be ready for the League that Mike is setting up…  Rebels of course, and it is a fun enough game…  Just a lot more draining than X-Wing.

X-Wing wise I got in a few more games…  I need to relearn the B-Wing I think.  Got the Y-Wing down, although I have to remember that the S&V version flies slightly different than the Rebel one with the Hard 3’s going Green with the Unhinged Astromech.  I still think that is one of the best Astromechs in the game…  I am REALLY looking forward to Wave 9 as I think the scene is somewhat stale and static now…  The best I would argue is still the Imperial Aces, but I have an answer for them so they are not unbeatable by any means.  Looking like I’ll be flying at least one B-Wing if I fly Rebels…  Ten Numb is likely the basis for the Squadron.  I flew that one in the beginning, and it is just solid enough I think to get in hits against the Agile Aces…  And he does have the power to actually finish off some of the larger ships in the end game.  Kind of a gimmick but a pretty solid one.

Of course Wave 9 is still not released…  I THINK it will be out before 2 October when the Titan League ends…  Yeah, I should post that on Facebook…
