Da-Bomb to GW2 and their Super Adventure Festival event - I've just jumped back into the game after a long time away and this event may be one of my favorite MMO events ever. In fact, it's put me back on the GW2 hype and I'm now playing daily !

A-Bomb to CSGO - The game has been running for 11 years and yet we still don't have 128 tick servers or a viable method of anti-cheat/cheating deterrent. I've personally invested over 1000 hours in the game but I won't play competitive match making again until they can guarantee a smooth experience and finally deal with the influx of hackers.

QoTW: Warframe. it's not because I don't think the game deserves my money. Rather, the game never makes me feel like I have to put money into it. I've gained numerous premium items via in-game grinding or giveaways and have never felt the urge to front cash for a prime frame... I'll just get it later for free at some point :)

Well, the game tries to get over 9000, but pretty much falls short every time.
