  • When Couples Play HoDA

    Okay, it's a bit late for Valentines Day, but as someone who is most fortunate to have a partner who shares their interest in playing HoDA (before I get roasted in the comments I am not trying to brag, rub it in or advocate that relationships are best, I swear there is nothing wrong with being single), I'm a bit curious if anyone else has the same type of experiences as part of a couple. Below are some of the conversations my significant other and I have had in relation to Heroes of Dragon Age.

    Partner A: Hon, I’m going to hang out with the guys tonight. Do you think you could…..
    Partner B: Babysit your heroes and keep your stamina used up so you don’t fall behind in the event? Also, keep an eye on your energy to make sure it doesn’t fill up?
    Partner A: You are amazing!! Here’s my tablet! Love you sweetheart! Bye!

    Partner B: Just got my Grand Champion pack and I got Wesley Vallen, Blighted Zevran, and Brother Genitivi!
    Partner A: I got a Grand Champion pack too and I got Knight-Enchanter Vivienne.
    Partner B: I want a 3 star hero too…T-T
    Partner A: What are you giggling about?
    Partner B: Oh nothing. Just had to resist the urge to smack talk you over the guild chat. I’ve got a 200 banner lead over you in the guild war right now.
    Partner A: I’m literally sitting right next to you and you want to post over the guild chat?
    Partner B: No one knows we’re a couple in the guild. Beside, you don’t have to worry. I won’t go through with it. I don’t want to risk getting booted from the guild for taunting my husband.

    Partner B: Hon, you’d support me if I decided I wanted to try something different, right?
    Partner A: Yes, for the most part. As long as it’s nothing illegal or morally horrific.
    Partner B: Okay, great.
    Partner A: You’re thinking of looking for another guild and want me to join with you, that’s it, isn’t it?
    Partner B: Maaaaybe…..

    Partner B: Wooot! I got the Golden Halla from my bloodstone pack!
    Partner A: I got…another dragon…..
    Partner B: What the hell?! Seriously?! Why don’t I get any 3 star love!?

    Partner A: Thanks sweetie.
    Partner B: For what?
    Partner A: For staying up late when I couldn’t to try and win Viscount Varric for me on the anniversary Nexus event.
    Partner B: But I didn’t get him to drop for you.
    Partner A: Doesn’t matter. It’s how much you tried that means the most.

    Partner A: We are not getting into this again. You have the way you tier your heroes up, and I have my way.
    Partner B: Yes, but my way gets them tiered up faster!
    Partner A: Your way is a pain in the ass.

    **debate goes on for half hour until dinner is ready**

    Partner B: Hey Sweetie! For this event which hero do you think would be best?
    Partner A: Quit using me like a human version of the HODA Codex!
    Partner B: But you can pinpoint the best team combos! While HODA Codex is totally amazing it doesn't make suggestions.

    Partner A: Dragon flash pack! I got Archdemon Urthemiel.
    Partner B: I don’t have enough gems….. and I want a dragon. *fishes out credit card* I’m only spending money just this once and only because I REALLY want a dragon!
    Partner A: What did you get?
    Partner A: Damn! I wish I had gotten that one. Urthemiel is nice but Morrigan would fit my squad so much better.
    Partner B: For once I have your envy….Mwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

    Partner A: I’m kinda tired of the tedious bits of HoDA but I don’t want to fall behind. How about this, I’ll cook dinner in exchange for you using my energy on the daily event, spending the profits on Soldier packs and then some tiering up of my characters.
    Partner B: Deal.

    Partner A: What are you doing?
    Partner B: Playing HoDA with Pip.
    Partner A: Is the cat actually watching you play while he’s cuddled up to you?
    Partner B: Yup, we’re just chillin'.
    Partner A: How often does he do this?
    Partner B: Enough for me to know that Brogan Dace and the wisps are some one of his favourite characters. He seems more interested when they attack.
    Pip the Cat: *purrs*

    Partner B: **Mad cackling**
    Partner A: Finally got King Alistair, did you?
    Parter B: Squee!!!!!!!
    Partner A: *sigh* Fangirl…

    Partner B: What did you get from the Bloodstone pack this time?
    Partner A: Hissrad….You?
    Partner B: Not a three star. Or even a two star.
    Partner A: Damn.
    Partner B: Yeah, forgive me for being a tad bitter, but I’m beginning to think you’re a luck vampire for three star heroes.
    Partner A: You have Dragon Morrigan and she’s a beast! I really wish I had gotten her.
    Partner B: I had to spend real money to get her. She is worth every single goddamn cent….

    Partner B: You were up late last night.
    Partner A: How could you tell?
    Partner B: Your last login was around 2:30 a.m.
    Partner A: How often do you look at that?
    Partner B: Enough for me to know if you’ve had a really slow day at work. Or if I need to avoid the bathroom for the next while.
    Partner A: *shoots dirty look*

    Partner A: Oh crap, I wasn’t paying attention and I hit the Next button too quickly, but I think I may have just come across your squad as a potential fight in the event.
    Partner B: Really?
    Partner A: Yes, it had varying ration of mythic and legendary, again I skipped it a bit too quickly to see what was what. But it had a Dragon Morrigan, a Battlemaster Marian and Garrett, and what could have been Liz and Patty*.
    Partner B: Awwwww, and you thought my party wasn’t worth the risk to fight? That’s sweet! Although if you wanted to find out, we are friends on the social so you probably could fight me and see if you take my party down.
    Partner A: Maybe, but I’d prefer to not find out which of our best parties would win in a fight between us.
    Partner B: I love you.
    Partner A: I love you too.

    *author’s note: I was watching A LOT of the anime Soul Eater when the Arcane Hawkes came out. So when I managed to snag a pair of Marians they got nicknamed Liz and Patty. Cause, SYMMETRY!

    Partner A: Ok, off the Witch of the Wilds event I managed to get two Advisor Morrigans, two Dragon Flemeths, and a whole bunch of regular Flemeths.
    Partner B: While I admit I didn’t play the event as much as you did since I didn't start from the beginning, I did still focus on it exclusively for five straight days, including a level up, and all I got was a single regular Flemeth and a handful of Yavana.
    Partner A: Hmmmm. Sucks.
    Partner B: Like I said, luck vampire.

    Soooo....what about you folks? Ever had something similar with your SO? Maybe with a bromance partner or a sister-by-a-different-mister? How about your kid/parent?

    I have had two instances of husbad/wife combos in my guild, they tended to be some of the top producers during GW. Only bad thing is if one leaves, you know you are losing another soon . I'm also familiar with a mom and son combo, but in a different and rather well respected guild.

      Sometimes playing in combo ends with a real life war as it happened with one of my cousins.
      Nevertheless, welcome to the forum Thiel! Keep it up!

        My husband no longer plays HoDA as frequently as he used to, but wow, this sounds like conversations right out of our house from when he did. I believe the most long-running jealousy gag for us was about Witherfang, back in the days of the 4-hour PVE events. I spent like 700 gems, got 17 Vengeance Anders and 0 Wtherfangs. Back when WF was super super OP.

        He played nats and got 3 WF.

        I did not own Witherfang until WAY LATER when she was in a flash pack.

        He'd make some comment about something or other of mine that he wished he had, and I'd just say "3 Witherfangs for free. Shut it."

          Ha! This would be classic. I just love every single conversation you both had!

            My wife tends to mock my hoda play and uses me as the example of what our boys shouldn't be doing i.e. on tablet or phone playing games all the time.If only I could slip her that first hit or 2 of hoda crack(first one is always free) and get her hooked as well,lol!


            • #7
              My boyfriend and I started playing HODA almost at the same time and now we're living in different countries. We taunt each other frequently and we're very competitive, but this game brings us together more often than not...

              Thank you Thiel Serion, now I'm very emotional T-T

                Thank you very much everyone for the warm welcomes and your lovely comments! I've been a member for a while and have been lurking, but this was one of the first times I really felt like posting something.

                Lyeshal - Nothing after 700 gems and he got not one, not two, but THREE naturally? I would have cried. Just down and out cried. I can only imagine your reaction when you finally got her.

                LokiTheAnsuz - Awww, I didn't mean to get you in the feels! *hugs* Here's hoping you'll be able to see each other soon.

                  Yes. Grumble, grumble. Except by the time I got her she was, well, in need of an update. Sigh... Such is the flow of the OP heroes, right?

                  Not bitter. Not bitter at all...

                    My Wife doesn't play, but she is remarkably tolerant of my HODA time and even asks questions even though I know she couldn't care less.

                    She must love me haha

                    I have handed her my phone a few times while I was driving and said, "I need you to battle for me."

                    Wife: "I don't know what I'm doing"

                    Me: "Just look at the numbers, and if mine look bigger hit fight, otherwise hit next."

                    Wife: "Ok"

                    *hits fight*

                    Wife: "Woah! Jenny Sera just killed everyone!"

                    Me: "yeah. She doesn't mess around."

                    Wife: "Seriously. Don't #@*& with Jenny Sera."

                        Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.

                        What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                        It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                        To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                        What happens if I break the rules?
                        At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                        Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                        For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                        Posting Suggestions
                        In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                        1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                        Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                        2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                        3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                        4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                        5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                        6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                        7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                        In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                        EA TOS English
                        EA TOS French
