Had a great time with the 9s last night. :D Good to feel that way again. :) We did the Ernesto Hess TF, which I'd never done with any alts before because they outleveled it by the time that TF became official. Anyway, it was pretty dramatic. Only wish someone besides the team leader could know what was going on. :/ See, the team leader gets the information from Hess, but nobody else does, and this happens with every TF, not just the Hess one. Anyway, nobody ever passes the info around - it'd take too long to type - so usually it's "go here and do this" etc. This one was that too, but much more dramatic because of the [spoiler for those who haven't done it].

Anyway, Heat exemped down, died once, Doc died once, but apart from that and a couple of close calls, we did very well, even with an 8-person team. The TF lasted just about 2 hours (a perfect length). Mr. Hess, sir? Can you do some more TFs for people, please? ^_~ So Heat picked up some influence and a good time was had by all.

Today there's the post office and groceries, and Toly needs a haircut, and in the afternoon we might go to the library. Well, we have to go - the kids' tape is due today - but today at the library, I see scribbled on my calendar, is "2 pm Animals". As long as it's not one of these things where the kids have to sit for 30 minutes, 'cause that's very hard on them and we never get to see the animals 'cause M gets antsy.

I got part of a SITL fic written last night. Maybe today I can work on it some. We'll see. Also need to take a look at the COH fics and see about ending that arc. Fics will take a backseat today, though, because we got the Sunday classifieds and man, people are hiring like anything! I'm afraid to say more for jinxing it. ^_^ But at least it looks like there's plenty of work. So the main thing today is to get Toly a haircut and to work on his resume. He's also going through the budgetary stuff and determining the minimum wage he needs to ask for, for us to manage on.

The heat is unbearable, I'm not even taking the kids to the pool now. I'm too worried about the heat to/from there, not to mention the sun's UV - even with SPF 45 slathered on every 30 minutes, they and I are getting awfully tan. Which is one of those mixed bag things, 'cause tan looks good, but nobody wants sunburn or the "tan freckles", you know? So mostly we're staying indoors and the kids are getting cabin fever as a result (no chance to run and climb and burn off energy), but I don't know any alternative. Not when they break out in a sweat just from standing in the shaded porch.

The big problem last night is that everyone went all over the place to fight. I can't heal and control and stuff when I have 3 groups to keep track of. The reason I died last night is that I was trying ot get between groups quick since the one group was really low on health and must have aggro'd another group and got taken down fast. That was the big thing that pissed me off throughout the night. Maybe next time I shouldn't worry and if they die they learn the hard way?

Why didn't you say anything, either before combats or during? If we don't know there's a problem, how can we solve it?

I noticed you were quiet last night, but didn't realize it was because you were PO'd at the group.

It was more a problem at the end when people were on different levels and on opposite sides of room and stuff where I couldn't just run a few yards between groups. I try to do my best, but I'm not MicroMachine with tons of various heals. I was a little out of it last night which is why I was quiet. Just had a lot on my mind lately and was a little tired.

Sorry it was hard for you. Because of our enormous lag/rubberbanding issues, half the time I couldn't tell where Whirly even WAS, so I hope I didn't aggro a bunch of stuff by mistake, thereby making your job harder.

Nah. That wasn't the problem. The problem was having 2-3 people fighting a group at point A, a few more at point B on the other side of the circular catwalk (visually blocked off) and a couple others off somewhere else. I just didn't know where to focus my attention. Normally the group all stays together and works well. Not sure what happened last night.

As Heat said...if things are out of hand speak up...it's the only way we can fix it, if it can be fixed...and we'll keep that in mind for the next time we do it or another missin like it. :)
