Been playing unusually large amounts of League of Legends lately. For the past couple months I've basically played 2-3 games a day. Considering each game can go from 20-50 minutes, it was reasonable. It's been closer to 4-6 lately.

I like to think that I'm immune to the crap that LoL brings, but I don't think I am. At least not as much as I thought. It's just been making me super irritable lately... And I haven't even been losing all my games. It's about half and half.

I've been getting so annoyed that people don't seem to be able to learn from their mistakes. This is probably why I'll never become a teacher. Or at least a very good one... You got your ass kicked once by diving into a fight outnumbered, so why do it again?? You were caught once because there was no sight on the enemy team, so why would you try it again?? Pings go down for you to retreat, so why did you stick around and die?? I don't have high expectations for the random PUGs, but if something happens to them a few times in the game, why can't they learn to stop doing it? -_-;;

The subreddit has been pissing me off a little too. Getting downvoted because people don't have a sense of humour and LoL is srs bsns is pretty stupid.

Bleh. I wish sometimes the game wasn't so competitive. You can try all you can to take an easy going attitude with it, but eventually you just get annoyed by time wasted vs. actual enjoyment.

At least the hockey game is on tonight. :D

So I've never played League of Legends but I feel your pain on the general stupidity of some people (on the internet or otherwise). And I've seen people do really stupid things in online games then go right back and do them again because...who knows why. It's a bit bizarre and hilarious if you aren't faced with it constantly, can get old, yes. Maybe take a break from the game? Not necessarily quit completely, but maybe play 1 hour instead of 2 or 3?

but I do kind of care if the game has been going on for over 30 minutes and it gets thrown by someone who can't learn from their own mistakes.

Yea, at that point it's more the principle of the thing than anything else, but ultimately playing online games is going to be like everything else: you have to take the good with the bad. In real life people react and act in a variety of ways, and online it's the same - even the immature or stupid bits. This is why even though I don't have lots of options to play with others, I'm mostly okay with that; if I lose it's because of something I did, not anyone else. (And frankly, though I am not always great at games, I trust myself more than lots of others.)

Ah, team based games...

Don't suppose they have options to pair up with people of similar skill levels?
