Ehehehehe. The subject line for today pretty much sums up the day. Despite my best laid plans for being productive, my concentration was pretty much derailed the minute the updated KHUX came out. >.<

That said, I had full intent to fix up my bike today (while the game was still under maintenance), but found myself lacking the tools I needed. <.< >.> Still, things look promising, and my bike will be sturdy again one day without having to rely on the tensile strength of camping string. :p One day.

Anyhow, back to the game. It's Kingdom Hearts. It's gorgeous. It's nostalgic. It's.....Kingdom Hearts. So many new features and content were added in this update; even after the hours I've spent playing it, I still haven't explored everything yet. Which is great. ^-^ And that alone, of course, should be reason enough, but I found myself wondering what I truly enjoy the game for. What is the most enjoyable aspect of the game for me?

Well, after some thought, I think I like the challenge of figuring out how the medals work together to achieve a goal (which usually means killing the enemies Xp). It's like this. Not everyone gets the same medals. You draw/pull, and you get the luck of the draw. There isn't really such a thing as a crappy hand - it's just how cohesively your medals can work together. As such, decisions you make about when to pull is also important, since not all medals released at a time may work out for you.

As a f2p (free-to-play) player, the game is probably more challenging to me than for the players who pay. I may grouch about the whales sometimes, but it's all in good fun. Let them reap the rewards of supporting the game financially. For me, the climb is steeper and requires more creative thinking, and there are certain walls and obstacles that only waiting can overcome. The collection of medals I have is patchy, and often doesn't want to work together in a way that makes sense. And more often than not, I won't have the best and shiniest things in the game. But so what? That's part and parcel of the fun, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
