My entry to @mattclarke’s 24 HC SSF PoE Race!steemCreated with Sketch.

in pathofexile •  last month

This is my entry to @mattclarke’s Path of Exile Hardcore Solo Self-found 24 hr race. I’ve been super busy with work this week due to our annual company conference.

Thank you for hosting this event, Matt! ❤️ I've so enjoyed my adventures in Path of Exile in the last few weeks and I suspect I will spend all my free time in March immersed in the Synthesis League. In fact, I'll be using Matt's race as the marker as both my 1 year anniversary of Steem!

Account name is: darkserenityrp and my plans are to play witch because that is all I know from my time in the Betrayal League. If I have time and get a little silly from too many deaths, I might try scion or berserker. But in all cases, I don't expect to live long! XD

During the race, I pledge NOT to:

  1. Decorate my hideout.
  2. Dress up my character in ugly gear to see how funny they look
  3. Go to sleep because I am dead tired from work and still recovering from drinking too much yesterday at an evening work function! Reflexes are still feeling slowly than my usual slow...

Okay, there's a real possibility, I will actually sneak in #3 (multiple times), but I promise to wake up and play again!!

So I'm excited to participate, and I'd like to take this moment to thank @supersoju for giving the game a go and keeping me company throughout my journey. It honestly would not have been as fun without her coming along for the journey with me. I'm hoping she waves the victory flag for us ladies! Regardless of where she ends up, I've been completely in awe of her grit and speed of learning the game. She's a true gamer gal at heart, and I plan to write her into my novel! hehe. I hope she continues to play the Synthesis League so we can earn the next tier of rewards for the 24 challenges. We're both career ladies, so it's never easy to fit in a game like Path of Exile, especially since she is also trying to breed 100 Sim babies as well as bash zombies...

So supersoju, do not even think about pregnancies during the race!! lol

Next up, I want to thank my new friend from Path of Exile, whom I've successfully dragged onto Steem! He's @nvisible on steem. I knew as soon as he told me he loved Hearthstone that he was a potential Steemmonster player. I've been thrilled to see him play the daily quests and getting excited by some of the nice cards he's achieved. He's the lovely Moroccan friend I've mentioned often in my post. I've been super pleased he has taken on the challenge of switching from Softcore to Hardcore at league start to join in the fun with us. I've met so many nice people on the Path of Exile forums, and even today, I just met another nice player who has agreed he'll go for the level 100 this league after I poked him a little. As I said to him, he's played 3-4 years now, so why not go for the big milestone for this one. hehehe. But @nvisible remains on the nicest and most gentlemanly players I've met. Much love and luck to him, I hope he does well!! <3

We're only a few hours away now, so I best post this. I don't even have a picture chosen for this post.

Good luck to all the contestants!

·

Thanks @nvisible! Wish you all the best of luck too and welcome to Steemit!

·
·

Meh, you guys will be wasting your time on me. I got slammed by Dominus again, I won't be getting past him! Grrrrrrrrrrr….
You both are my only hope to make fun of the vets playing, come on! I need a reason to troll them @supersoju @nivisible!

I don't think you ladies got what it takes to compete against grizzled veterans that we have in the race right now, but good luck :D

-raising shield for defense-

·

😹😹😹
I don't think a shield can save you from @linnyplant
(off to drag Linny away from her hideout)

·

@supersoju, are you reading this?!?! You need to do something!!!

Gone off to decorate hideout...lol

·
·

A little bit of trash talk always spices things up :)

·
·
·

Hmm, I really need to check the winners podium to see how many grizzlies are on it. :P

·
·
·
·

Looking like Diana was our first female winner :)
I think we have consensus, but I'll give everyone a little longer to contest results.

·
·

·
·

lol. I take a gender neutral approach until a lady confirms she is indeed a lady. You really need to spend time more on the PoE forum to understand this. I've learnt never to make the assumption on female names.
:P

Hi, Linny! I've been away from here for so long and when I returned I thought of reaching to you to say hi. I'm super excited to see you are still here. My warm regards. I noticed you aren't on Discord anymore. I hope all is fine with you 🙂

·

Arrrggghhh!! It's you misterakpan, you've never checked in on me, so this is a surprised! But unless you plan to play Path of Exile, you'll probably not hear from me much. I'll add you on my discord, I go in by a new account named cranky now. :)

You're in. Your account is set to public and you're one of 9 contestants so far :)

9Gigs patch 0.o

·
·

@supersoju, make sure you patch before the race! And don't worry about this error. Apparently everyone is getting it and it will be fixed soon.

They have fixed that error so it should be ok.
In the few first hours of the league player can experience some disconnections just to find themselves in a queue, due to the pressure on servers

·

·

Eeek; hope we will be able to play without too many problems.

@linnyplant; I'm trying to avoid replying to you directly too many times because I don't want those bots following me again lol. But thanks for the heads up; I was worried I would have trouble downloading the game but it worked perfectly. OMG; just saw a notification in game that someone was the first to reach level 69 in HC!

·
·

Damn. Might be a who has the fastest internet? race.

·
·
·

hahaha I have fast internet.....but just not the time to play it now....or maybe I can squeeze a couple of levels before I head out.

About time you posted; I was wondering whether you had found another open bar this Friday evening.

Regardless of where she ends up, I've been completely in awe of her grit and speed of learning the game. She's a true gamer gal at heart, and I plan to write her into my novel! hehe.

Awww you are too kind; but don't you mean 'Gamer Cat'?

Soju is the mastermind; I'm just her slave.

I hope she continues to play the Synthesis League so we can earn the next tier of rewards for the 24 challenges.

Oh my; 24 challenges; that will be a tough one. But we can only try.

So supersoju, do not even think about pregnancies during the race!! lol

Speaking of pregnancies; I am currently at 12 kids with number 13 on the way. If I need some motivation for the PoE race; maybe I ought to raise a few more kids til I feel the need to bash some zombies up. The most annoying kids are the one that make a mess and you stop whatever you are doing to discipline them. Then after getting them to clean the mess and you continue what you were doing earlier; they go off outside the house or around the corner to make another mess thinking they can do it without you knowing. grrrrrrr....zombie time.

Okay; time to feed the boss before the race.
Aunty Linny is counting on you Soju.

·

Soju's become a black cat?! Seriously, NO babysitting or disciplining your digital children during the race! I need you to focus dammit and beat the grizzlies (@moon32walker) above! But don't worry, we have an extra ally in @nvisible now. hehehehe But I'll be tracking your levelling closely.

·
·

lol I have no skills in drawing; that skill was taken by my older siblings. So black cat it is. =D

Focus is something I am not going to have today lol. I'm telling you; you have the ability to beat them yourself.

I am going to sleep too. Do not worry! :)

·

Oooh, I like that. We can be team sleepy during the race!!! yayyyyy! I was telling the guys on the PoE server, I might actually sleep through the league start. lol

·
·

We will give them a head start, but they have no chance! :D

·
·
·

I think you might be a prize winner!!!! I better go check the proper results now. :)
