Ask Auntie Acid: The Sequel

Krystal Fae (Acidburn)
Once upon a time, in a dimension very much like our own, a dear friend once had an advice colomn in the forum of a now-defunct  game.

As an homage, I, Krystal Fae, aka Acidburn, shall attempt a similar column.

If a serious question is asked, I shall endeavour to provide a serious response... if a non-serious query is made, expect a funny or sarcastic response.

My request is that all query's are posted from the POV  of your hero/villain character.  (It's more fun that way.)

Hi, Miss Fae. I've got a question for you if you have a second, but I don't know if you can help me or not.

I've gotten more powerful over the last few months, especially since Halloween, but I still struggle fighting in KOTM challenges. There are other heroes fighting in them that have been doing it far longer and much better than I am.

It is disheartening to try time after time and to constantly get knocked down. Is it worth it for me to even join them?

How, as a newer combatant, am I supposed to break the glass ceiling and win if older, more experienced players won't get out of the way and move up into different divisions?

Thanks,
Madam Marvelous

Dear MM,

Thanks for your inquiry.

My best advice at this point of your growth is that KoTM not be a priority, other than trying for a win for your daily quests.

At your current stage of growth, you should concentrate more on continuing to build your strengths.

This will pass in time.  Do not become discouraged.

Sincerely,
Auntie Acid

Dear Auntie Acid,

I think I misidentified the subject of my question. I was speaking of the Event, such as Chronos, Duels, or Brawls. I wouldn't dream of trying to fight on the KOTM ladder itself. There are some scary people who fight there.

I'm asking about fights in the lower divisions. I am most often in Division 5 and frequently run into members of SUFFERING who are close to my level designation, but have been in that Division for quite a long time. I've looked at their profiles and some of them have been stuck at the same level forever and they haven't moved up to the next division except for a few matches after they take first.

How long do I have to wait until I get a fair shot at winning like they do? Should I just sit out the matches for the next decade until they finally advance?

Dear MM,

These characters you describe are known as 'polesitters'... Their intent is to remain at their current level until they are functionally unbeatable.  

If you continue to build your strengths, you can then level into a higher division where they are disinclined to go.

There may be others 'sitting' there as well, but you will have a chance to face others than your current nemisi.

I repeat,  do not be discouraged.

Sincerely,
Auntie Acid

My dear ZC,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Knowing your former habits, I can only assume some form of infection.

My best recommendation is antibiotics.

No... Wait.
It burns when I pee.
You might even call it an "acid burn"...
Antibiotics are great. I bet you suggest them to all the boys.

Dear Mr. ZC,

As you may be aware, there is an acid that occurs in urine.  That acid varies in concentration based on the daily consumption of water, so if you're concerned that acid is causing a burning sensation, drink more water.

I, in fact, recommend that antibiotics be used only when needed for treatment of an infection... their over-use causes resistant strains to flourish.

Sincerely,
Auntie Acid

Dear Ms. Fae,

I wish to take over the known universe.  I am training very quickly in order to acquire some of these "Morphonic Particulates" your kind seems to covet.  Once I have gathered all the necessary MP's, I plan to use them to destroy this "Badger" you all you all worship in order to keep some sort of Sun God happy.

Your religious ways are very confusing to me.  In my day everyone worshiped.. well, me!  And you all shall again!  You should inform your readers to prepare for a return of the Old Ways, when Gods walked the earth with mortals and punished them for insolence.

If you must require an actual question, I ask you this:  How many MP's is enough to destroy the fabric of space time and return us all to the proper worshiping of God Pharaohs?

I hope you and your loved ones are well and happy this Holiday season.  

Best Wishes,
