Wasn't the best war I've had, not due to the hosts, but to my own misfortune.
This was only my second war of the year as compared to last years 11+, so it seems I'm a bit rusty.
-Getting 3 hours sleep and waking up late.
-Deceiving people all day after cutting my hair.
-Echnalaid thinking I was Split.
-Split not having any idea who I was.
-Going through a whole round flanking with Famine, without him realizing who I was.
-Completely losing track of which team I was on at one point, ending up shooting my own teammates and fighting for my enemies after moving to a different part of the field.
-My gun and new breach performing flawlessly
-Finding out I truly don't need anything besides a simple breach and a springer. (After trying out a SMDTG ntegration which I never used except for the sole purpose of shooting myself in the hand by accidentally hitting the trigger.)
-Finding out just how out of shape I am.
-Getting a majority of my darts back for once
Now for the worst part of the war for myself.
During the last round, my team and I ended being routed around the field, perused by Forsaken and countless others.
At some point we were forced to make a stand.
As I was moving close to some trees and brush attempting to get some sort of beneficial angle on Forsaken.
As I side stepped quickly, ready to take a shot, I heard a deafening pop(Literally).
Apparently as I leaped to the side, a branch shoved itself into my left ear canal.
I sat down and realized I couldn't hear anything from my left ear and I was in intense pain.
I checked for blood... yep.
I drove two hours home then spent 5 hours in the emergency room.
Fortunately there is no permanent damage.
I basically ripped the shit out of my ear canal and did a little damage to my ear drum, but there is nothing that will need surgery.
The hearing loss is due to a great deal of internal swelling and trauma.
A week later I'm still about 90% deaf in my left ear, but I'm told it should be better in about a month or so.
At least it happened at the very end of the war, I wouldn't have wanted to miss anything.
And I must say, It was pretty hot outside
