Wizzies who play or played a lot of MOBAs I summon.

In my gaming career I always kind of dodged them but lately they've been a good way to sink some time in to just manage to get at the end of the day and go to sleep instead of pressing F5 on imageboards or rotting the brain away watching youtube videos.

Right now I play related picture and playing ranked. I pretty much lose every game but I dont really care. I was just wondering whatever it will be always like this or maybe if I keep playing I will just naturally get better since I don't care about reading online on how to improve.


I refused to play them until about 2019 I tried league.

And you know what? I should've stayed away. They are nothing but infuriating time wasters. There are so many barriers to enjoying yourself. Wanted to play a specific lane? Bad luck you got autofilled. Wanted to play a specific character? Bad luck they got banned/picked by the other team. Winning your lane? Bad luck your allies lost theirs and now you're getting stomped too. Pile on top of that the fact everyone is always a raging asshole all the time at the slightest provocation and it's just pure misery in electronic form. All I play now on league is ARAMs, cause at least no one can ban your champion, or fuck up their lane, or whatever else.


I tried HOTS just cuz I like the Starcraft characters. I admit I totally suck. So I just played casually coop against bots. I liked the siege tank.


They're all bad games, but League especially.
Blizzard All-stars is probably my favorite, but I haven't played it in a long time. I stopped playing because other players are infuriating and you get absolute shitters even in diamond. It's very arcadey compared to League and especially Dota, but I appreciate that games are consistently short. I think my longest game was 42 minutes and that was years before I stopped playing. It's occasionally fun to play Mid Only. Kinda sad how the game felt like it was always dying. Most of the characters actually felt fun and varied unlike League. I legitimately enjoyed every role, though that usually meant I would be relegated to support duties.


Wasted 3+ years on League of Lesbians despite the red flags, should have played a good game instead.


I have seen my relatives waste away their entire youth and much of their adulthood by getting butthurt and smashing things because of League Of Losers


Much like >>59743 I refused to play League until 2019 but that k/da music video got my attention and I gave it a try. Been playing here and there since then, what keeps me hooked is how items let you have your own playstyle even within other players that pick the same champ. I play ranked cause it’s the only mode where people take it semi-seriously, normals are filled with stoners that don’t look at their minimap or in worse cases, at their screen even.
There is a lot of ragers and griefers but so is the case in other games, I never got why this game in particular gets so much flak, must be that success breeds jealousy.

I peaked Diamond 1 99lp a few weeks ago (though I dropped a bit and I'm currently D3). To answer your question: You will not improve much at all if you keep playing a lot of games without thinking. And you will not improve much at all if you never read up resources online on how the game works.

Trust me, I was stuck in Gold and Plat for the past 3 seasons, if you're not tryharding improvement, you will not get anywhere. It's impossible. If you're playing for fun, that's fine, but if you want to actually get good, you need to start reading up online and taking notes on how the game objectively works and what the best plays are. You need to understand the "theory" behind how a League game works. Then, you need to start VOD reviewing every one of your games, listing all of the differences between you and the theoretical perfect performance, and consciously trying to fix bad habits as you play. Playing a lot of games might improve your mechanics, but it won't fix anything else. It's a waste of time.


it's called assfaggots for a reason


By the way, just so you know, I would not recommend playing this game at all. My goal for this season was to get D4 by tryharding and then quit, but I got it within a month and a half of tryharding and I thought that Master tier would be doable… I regret it. This game is fucking horrible to play. I've wasted 800 games, about 400 hours of my life, in the past 4 months on this shit. And I am not having fun. Becoming better is slightly fulfilling and makes me happy, but that's about it. The game is not worth it, and if my mind wasn't forcibly preventing me from quitting until I reach my goal, I'd drop it immediately and go back to single player games. They're much more fulfilling and make me much more happy.

If you're new, quit as soon as you can.

Update: Master tier. Now I can finally quit, and I can confidently say, fuck League of Legends. This game sucks.


LOL gave me afib
