New Adventures

Who’s ready for Tomb of Sargeras?

Warcraftier will be making our first foray into the raid tonight.  We’ll be starting with Normal.  If we plow through it, we’ll jump to Heroic with what time we have left and focus on that the rest of the week.

Want to see how we do?  Be sure to join us tonight, 7pm CST.  I’ll be streaming from my Point of View over on my Twitch Channel.  Expect lots of screaming and Starfalls.  Or something.

Hope to see you there!

The day I called my raid leader ugly

Jargon.  A noun.  Meaning: the technical terminology or characteristic idiom of a special activity or group sports jargon

I usually think about jargon when it comes to tech.  Most things that people who are really good with computers and such say goes right over my head.

No matter your profession though, we all have some type of Jargon we’re versed in.

Talking about the stations I listen to and have worked for over the years, when it comes to their actual formats and programming, I lose my parents when I start spouting off CHR, AC, Hot AC, etc.  They can’t follow that.  But since I’ve been around it for 12+ years, it’s second nature to me.

And it gets me in trouble.

If you didn’t catch it on stream, or here, I’m a voice artist.  I talk for a living.  A lot.  And I work a bit in radio.  Hence the format jargon above.

And this wonderful little gem from the other day.

Our raid leader, Co-GM of Warcraftier, and also fellow streamer Serickson/Serbear finally got a webcam!  Since he knows about what I do out of game (see the above) he had me check out his stream a bit to work on some of the audio levels.

I gave him some advice.  Told him to ditch the webcam mic.  And we checked back a couple days later to see where the levels were while using a different mic.  Was the balance there with the music in the background, Discord, his mic, etc.

And me…firmly situated in my audio nerd zone pops back on my mic, telling him how much better it sounds.  It all sounds great, but he could stand to be hotter.

To which Discord goes silent.

Yeah.

In my audio nerd zone, of course I’m talking about his Microphone.  The levels need to be higher for his voice to be on the same level as Discord voices.  Hotter in this case is referring to the sensitivity of the microphone.

But they don’t know that.

Very seriously I was asked if I was telling Ser that he’s ugly.

And now we have a mortified Druid.

He was a pretty good sport about it.  Still funny though.  And mortifying.  But funny.

Twitch it Up: Updated Again

Hi friend!

I’m making some little adjustments to my stream times.  The reason being Mondays have become pretty rushed between the Chiropractor appointments, my freelance, and running back to town for Mr. Scruffy.  So until our truck is up and running again, Mondays are on hiatus.  Besides, I’d rather be able to spend a bit more time on Mondays catching up with folks and in game.  So when they’re back on, I suspect I’ll adjust the time a bit too to match the rest of the week.

I’m still keeping the double stream on Saturdays.

So for now, here’s where we are for streaming.

 

Monday: Unscheduled
Tuesday: 7pm-10pm CST Progression Raid with Warcraftier
Wednesday: 7pm-10pm CST Progression Raid with Warcraftier
Thursday: Unscheduled
Friday: Date night.  Stream times announced via Twitter.  (Or updates about Mr. Scruffy and I having a proper date night out of game. 🙂 )
Saturday: Noon – 2 or 4 CST Warcraft and Chill (PVP, Questing, Alt leveling)
7-11 pm CST Normal Alt Raid/Questing/PVP/Dungeons with Warcraftier
Sunday: Unscheduled

Birthday Giveaway

It’s my birthday and I’ll give gifts if I want to!

Technically, my birthday isn’t until the 23rd, but I still want to give out presents!

Since I’m a World of Warcraft girl and a lover of the Blizzard games, I have a $20 Battle.net card to give away this month!  Basically, it’s $20 bucks for your Blizzard account for you to use as you’d like, whether it’s in Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, or elsewhere!

If you want to enter, scoot over to my Twitter page (@thescruffydruid), follow me, then retweet the official giveaway tweet which will be pinned to the top of my page.

The Winner will be picked via TweetDraw on my birthday, May 23rd, roughly around 10pm CST.  I say roughly, because I’ll draw it at the end of my stream once raid is done for the night.  Which is usually around 10 pm CST. 🙂

Nope.  You don’t need to watch the stream to be eligible.  Just follow me on Twitter and retweet the tweet.  I’ll announce the winner on Twitter as well and send them a Direct Message to the winner.

Sound good? Great!

Happy Birthday from me to you!  And good luck!

Happy Anniversary

To the Girl Streamers community!

They celebrated one year yesterday with a pretty epic stream of the Jackbox games.  I got to sit in with them for a few rounds as well.

I’ve been a part of their community for about a month now and they really are a supportive awesome group of women streamers on committed to helping each other grow.  All of their members are pretty amazing and just wonderful to follow if you’re looking for new people to watch and hang with on Twitch.

If you have a moment, give them a follow, a like, and catch their streams.
