Friday Night Vid

Here you go guys, plan on being back next week.

Monday, August 27, 2012


So a quick update on a couple things.

First off, I do plan on continuing to blog, just trying to find a way to keep blogging regularly, since my main source of shit to talk about was WoW.

Second, finally got to 60 on the Witch Doctor through a mixture of the new patch and blowing something like 600k gold on the AH for gear to replace the shit I had that I couldn't replace with the even shittier stuff that was dropping, jumping overnight from 3.5k dps to 35k dps....

Never Surrender

So me and a couple of my buddies that play LoL have came to a conclusion.  There is, as I am sure anyone that has played knows, a surrender option after 20 minutes in a game of LoL.  It gets used far to much and gives people an easy way out if they fuck up and feed or aren't getting carried hard enough.  I will never use it again.

The reasoning is this.  You never learn anything if you surrender.  You won't know what to do if your team gets snowballed against,  You won't know how to fight back against unfair odds and win.  You make it easy to place the blame on someone else's shoulders rather than take the blame if you fucked up.

I have made ridiculous comebacks before.  The whole game is about being able to take advantage of the other teams mistakes when they are made.  Mistakes will be made.  I have been on the team that aced them at our nexus, with the Nexus being all that was left, and won.

But that absolutely cannot happen if you surrender.  You will not get better if you surrender, at least not to the best you could be.  Yea, it sucks if your losing.  Don't rage, don't give up, play better.

ISP Issues

So the ISP where I live only shows a 5mb upload available to residential.  I was wanting more, because I was wanting to stream and there are often multiple people using the internet at the house.  So I go on their website, find the contact us option, send them an email asking if you could get more upload, how much it costs, ect.

I get a email back, please call us.

What the fuck is the point of having a email contact option if you are just going to make the customer call you.  Furthermore, maybe you shouldn't have people working for an ISP that do not have the ability to type out and email.

Developments and Such

So, I have came to a couple of realizations over the last week or two.  It has lead to some changes in the games I play and things I do, which inevitably leads to a change in the content that you will get on this site.

So I'm not really playing WoW anymore.  It may not seem like much but this is a pretty large development actually.  I have played WoW since about a month after vanilla dropped, pretty solid the whole way through.  But in this last pre-expansion slump, I haven't been playing hardly at all, not for lake of things to do, just a general lack of interest.

As a matter of fact, I have found myself playing LoL more and more, to the point that it is drowning out just about any other game.  So there may be some slow points in the future while I try to find a way to provide content for the blog.

Playing for a Living

On the thoughts of yesterdays post, I have been looking into it, and it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to set everything up to play a game for a living, assuming you had the skill to gain the popularity you would need to actually be able to do it.

Making Money Streaming

So I ran across this guy the other day.  I need his skills to be able to make a job out of streaming LoL and giving lessons.  As in make a living off of it and not have to have another job.

Weekend Updates

LoL - Summoner Level up to 28, halfway to 29.  Had a wonderful game this morning, the weekend sucked tho.  Had something like a 25% win rate.  Did some ARAMs on Proving Grounds tho, that was a lot of fun. I'm at 8/100 on Ahri now.  Did get EloBuff this weekend, is nice.

Sorry guys, thats about all I have accomplished.  Ideas for columns please.

Continuing on a very LoL themed week, I'm calling attention to the contest that EloBuff is running this month, which can be found under the blog section of their site.  The reward wis going to be no less that 300$ of Riot Points, or 42000. Yea....that is all.

So the game of LoL that I got into today was pretty spot on for this topic.  Played a game that we lost this morning that had a Blitzcrank in it.  The reason I call him out specifically it he was singularly the worst played of the 10 champions in that game.  He was also the only person in the game raging, at least, that I could see.  I actively participate in the tribunal for LoL.  One of the biggest offenses I see consistently in game is people raging at their team mates instead of playing.

And that is what it comes down to.  No questions asked.  If you are raging at anyone in a game, several things are happening that are causing the quality of your game to deteriorate and increasing the likely hood that you are going to lose.

For one, your not playing.  You are standing still somewhere, typing out furious little sentences that everyone else is laughing at instead of controlling your champion and helping your team mates or farming for your levels/items.  This is bad enough if it is in your base, where you are simply not participating.  It is far worse if you are out on the map, sitting vulnerable somewhere.

Your not thinking clearly.  You are angry about shit that doesn't matter, which causes you to make rash decisions and get into shit that you cannot handle.  Stop, take a step back.  Are you seriously raging over a few pixels on the screen.  I understand just as well as a pro how important games can be to someone, but that doesn't mean you need to be raging, it hampers the thought process.  If you want proof, go watch the streams that the pros put up.  You can see their faces, hear their reactions.  They don't rage.

You are alienating yourself from your team mates.  They don't wont to listen to you, get dragged into your shit.  They are playing a game, they want to have fun, you are ruining that for them.  That is killer in a game like LoL that needs team communication above all.  You end up on mute and the communication is gone.

Riot released some info a little while back.  They have access to this kind of information, since they are able to see chat logs and all.  While they didn't give exact numbers, they did state that it is easy to see a correlation showing that if you rage your are more likely to lose.  And not only are you losing, your dragging 4 other people into it with you.
