Ok, ok, we get it. come on Ranger, enough of the 'satirical' posts in counter of something happening on CB you don't like.

QBRanger April 30 2009 10:28 AM EDT

Dear Diary:

Finally got a defensive win vs LA.

Must be the bugged BoE that is causing me to lose.

I sure wish Jon would come back and fix the bugs in the game.

Dear Diary:

Today was a very good day.

When did you wake up?

QBRanger April 30 2009 10:45 AM EDT

Dear Diary:

My sleep habits are now being questioned. I was up very late playing poker. Finished fourth when the top 3 made the money. Stupid all in with A-Q. Tried to prevent a blind steal and he outdrew me on the turn. Damm K.

Slept late to get 6 good hours. Woke up at 8:00, played with the kids in the morning before logging on to CB. I actually do have a life outside of CB.

Dear Ranger's Diary:

Please let Ranger know that Jon hasn't been online in two days, and that it may be a better idea to email Jon or NS to remind them of Dudemus's bug list.

Jon did say that he's now forwarding his @CarnageBlender.com address to his GMail so he can check it more often. If you recall his CB addy, go for it. It should be something along the lines of Jonathan@[intentionally left blank for spam].com or Admin@[no spammy].com...

QBRanger April 30 2009 10:54 AM EDT

Dear Diary:

It should have been obvious that I would have CMd and emailed NS about the BoE bug. And am awaiting some sort of answer/reply.

My history with CMing Jon has been not very successful, so I tried NS.

But common sense is sometimes lost in the wallows of dispair.

Losing money doesn't sound like part of my great days, but what do I know. It must be nice to have your day end at 9 am though.

Rawr April 30 2009 10:59 AM EDT

Maybe it was online poker :)

Mikel April 30 2009 11:05 AM EDT

Can't believe you lost that hand!!

But you should know better than to try to knock someone out when you are one spot away from getting auto money!!

Just fold and let someone else fight for it.

deifeln April 30 2009 11:15 AM EDT


Depending on the blinds and his relative stack size, he might not have had another option and thus defended his blind. Often, with a premium hand (AQ is premium when you're four handed), you can't make any other decision.

QBRanger April 30 2009 11:28 AM EDT

Dear Diary:

I had A-Q in the small blind. The button put in a nice raise, which I took for a blind steal. He did have me covered and I was 3rd in chips. I do not play for 3rd. I reraised all in and he called with K-Q. Hit the K on the turn. I was a heavy favorite to double up and come closer to 1st place.

I would do it again 100/100 times.

It was a live game ending about 1AM.

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] April 30 2009 12:02 PM EDT

So Ranger, I'm confused, how are we all supposed to think you're anything more than a complaining child, knowing that you're a full grown man with a family and a career, when your posts are constantly made to mock, insult and generally put down other members of our dwindling community? Its not hard to be the best person in CB, when you're the only person in CB.

QBRanger April 30 2009 12:11 PM EDT

Dear Diary:

People keep attacking me for no reason. Saying I am driving people away from CB.

The fact Jon is nowhere to be found obviously has nothing to do with the dwindling membership. People never get frustrated with bugs that greatly effect gameplay. And after a while just decide to bail for greener pastures.

People also think it is ok for some to have personal diaries in CB, but not appropriate for others.

What a stupid double standard.

I love you because you are part of CB, sarcastic humor and all.


Demigod April 30 2009 12:52 PM EDT

"The fact Jon is nowhere to be found obviously has nothing to do with the dwindling membership. People never get frustrated with bugs that greatly effect gameplay. And after a while just decide to bail for greener pastures."

Though it's completely irrelevant to the main point of the thread, I don't think Jon's lack of bug squashing has anything to do with the size of the community. No one's going to quit just because of the temporary BoE super-boost. The major bugs will be fixed at some point, even if it does a while. The bigger concern (to me at least) is the utter lack of marketing. Remember that I didn't sign up for CB because of an inticing flash ad, I joined because I played CB1 until it died and decided to see what had changed over the years.

I also don't foresee Jon or NS coming up with a huge marketing budget, so fixing the "dwindling membership" may come down to a fellow player creating a brilliant MySpace/Facebook app to increase the community.

Hehe, hilarious. Nice one, Ranger! ;)

ResistanZ2 [The Knighthood] April 30 2009 1:25 PM EDT

Dear Ranger's Diary,

Today my suspicions were confirmed when Draco accidentally addressed himself as Tal.

Also, apparently Tal loves Meso and not his other wife anymore.

Go time.

that defensive win = me messing around with AC set up :D i play like this every few days or so :D with BOE ; i 'd always win

I wonder if LA beats me without using the BoE.

Perhaps my wonders will be answered.

without BOE. 100% NOT able to. Unless i retrained.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 30 2009 3:24 PM EDT

lol, you crack me up Ranger. A Poker player eh? I spend a lot more time then I should on the felt. I would also do what you did every single time. A funny one a few weeks ago that I had with AQ suited: I was in the BB with 6 players left, top 3 get paid.

Button raised to 3x the BB (he was almost tied with me in chips and very aggressive) SB called, and I reraised all in. Button calls and has me covered by like 200. (50,000 pot or so) SB calls all in.

Button has: Q10 off.
SB has Q9 suited. (said he was getting bored, I don't really know :S)

So the flip comes A47... woot? I had a pair with a flush draw.
then it runner 10s. I was like... really... lol

All logic sugests he got outdrawn in a 10 or 9man sitngo, not that unusual a K-rag makes a move, unless hes not entirely honest then a 36% hit him. :| Public diaries are ftw when having a life outside CB is key.

Only took 54 posts before this thread went into disintegration.

So I guess after 50 or so posts in most threads, all that has to be stated will be.

Remind me never to read posts longer than number 50.

Classic Ranger. Giving up in the name of righteous indignation.

There will be more posts, diary. I assure you.

QBOddBird April 30 2009 10:52 PM EDT

Dear Ranger's Diary:

It appears Ranger's jealousy over novice having a diary only lasted for 50 posts. No more to come? I find this highly unlikely.

Perhaps I should start my own diary, too. I find that I'm becoming a little jealous as well.

P.S. Diary, I like you a lot. Maybe we should make more of you, and then this can become FaceBlender....or CarnageBook? I'm so uncertain of the name, but so in love with the concept.

*walks up and staples a mess of pink pages to the bottom of Ranger's diary*

I found your diary, and seeing as you've only used the first two pages to draw lob sided hearts and the initials J+H+NS (whatever that's supposed to mean)... so I burned the first two, and now look at all the extra room we have.

Dear Diary:
Yesterday was not a good day, some idiot attacked the royal dutch family. He failed in his objective yet he killed 5 and injured 15 innocent bystanders. Queensday is ruined now, and many cities are halting there festivities. Luckily the guy that did the act died as well.

Dear Rangers Diary;

turns out, GS substituting for Str on a Single Archer with a Hal familiar aint so bad!

actually, the avg damage is more than it used to be before i changed Str to GS.
Cool thing is i never have to train archery because Str with always be lvl 20 forever.

i even fought single minions with DM and still won! boy oh boy
