It's all about efficiency.

For me last night/late this morning was a real wake up call. I'm not going to be dating for a LONG time. Replacing dropping money at the bar with Hex seems like a win-win proposition.

I think I might get a mini fridge, that way I can spend less time walking to the kitchen.

So basically, get rid of women, get lazy, acquire digital currency!

I plan on reducing the rotation of the Earth by 5%. Ignoring all consequences of my actions of course.

I'm going to pick up a tablet so I can spend my time at the coffee shop playing rather than reading the news. Being a Westcoaster, I love me some coffee.

My second vice in life is good coffee. Come up to Seattle sometime and I'll treat you to my local grind/roasts.

Clever scheduling, and general sleep deprivation. Only so many hours in a day etc.

Tablet support would obviously mean more opportunity to access the game, and its why they value that so highly I'm sure.

I haven't been to Seattle in several years. I'm out in central OR so Portland is about as far north as I usually go. Though my GF really wants to go to a Comic Con, and Seattle's does have a good line up...

I'm also going to hook my PC up to the living room TV. My GF does her homework in the living room so we will be able to hang out together. Her idea not mine lol.

I started a YouTube channel...... be careful with that idea though. Lots of set up and work involved there :-P

Set up a twitch channel, win a lot/be insane, build up advertiser/subscriber revenue, keep on a set schedule and you'll probably never log off most night. So long as you have something motivating you, you'll keep buying draft after draft after draft until well after the sun is high in the sky.

I'm going to quit drinking beer the day Alpha starts. That way I'll have more time (to play Hex), more money (to play Hex), and I'll lose weight too.

I'll have 8+ hours a day to play already, plus the entire weekend. I'll be taking some vacations from work too. ;)

I don't how I can play this game as much as what I am reading onthe forums. I have a full time job, but I do have downtimes I can play. Evening and weekends will be more available. Hope to find a good active guild to enjoy the game with

This. So much this.

I plan on doubling my coffee/redbull bill at work.

NEVER SLEEP. Once the tablet version comes out, I'll just be switching back and forth between that and the PC to keep updated and playing. I'll probably save my tablet for more PvE stuff, and my PC for PvP.

I'm going to run my life on hex, victory means yes, loss means no. Any decision I ever make will come down to a game of hex. Hex will make me two-face.

I will be paralyzed, unable to act, and require another game of hex.

I just need to develop my sober/drinking routine to match my Hex activity:

DO: Draft while sober.
DO: Play PvE while intoxicated.

Not going to lie... I'm most likely going to play Hex at work when it's super slow.

Our retail store's computers are actually really good servers and the video cards are pretty decent.

I suppose I could just get an Ipad or try to play it on my Note 2... But playing it on a retail touch screen register would be amusing. It's like playing on a big tablet just no sound :(

Befriend Ray Kurzweil and wait for the Singularity so I can upload my conscience to a computer and live forever? (Playing many games of HEX at once if I manage to get on a good processor).

Put a lock on the door to the man-cave, and wear a headset to avoid hearing the wife-aggro that ensues.

For me, I am replacing Magic the Gathering with HEX, which seems like an easy transition, replacing drafting with drafting, etc. Commander still has some charm, but Wizards are building too many Commander-specific cards, robbing the format of the spirit of discovery, so that should be easy to replace with Hardcore dungeons in HEX.

There are no sacrifices to my job or the gym. Though I have decided to not purchase next gen consoles until next year, since I'll be balls deep into Hex once I get my backer goodies.

Get a tab so I can play from the couch.

Honestly, I'm trying to figure out what tablet to get myself for this exact purpose. Sony xperia? Google Nexus 10? Gah! Every review I read has some pros and cons for every device, which is a good thing, since I want a full and balanced review. However, each pro has me wanting each device and each con leaves me not wanting the device. /sigh

You'll probably want to go for an iOS tablet, since it will most likely arrive on that platform first.

Interesting. I got the impression they were aiming for Android & iOS same time release.

Do Apple still use normal glass for their ipads? I tend to drop things a lot. Normal glass scares me.

Edit: I drop things whilst using them, so "just get a cover" is not likely to help. :(

Get an otterbox.

Is this a thing? We don't have otters in the wild here. I'm sure I would get in trouble for stealing an otter from the zoo. How big should the box be?

Edit: I just had the chance to check those out. While they look pretty cool, I would rather just spend that extra $100 on a sturdier tablet. Is the Sony Xperia Z not as sturdy as it seems?

Well you're shorting yourself getting drinks from her then. Headset I'm all for, but if she can't get in, you can't get served brew.

Hex will give me something to do in class. Last semester of college and taking all gen-ed classes. Now the only time ill waste this semester is the time it takes to drive to school :D
