I don’t know about you, but some of my fondest and most endearing memories involve curling up on a sofa playing League of Legends while my beagle sleeps soundly on my right side. That or when he is wide awake looking at the screen, then looking at me, then looking back at the screen, then looking at me.
Basically, he’s rooting me on. He’s encouraging me. Whatever the case may be, I love such experiences. It’s much better than my wife nagging me about spending too much time playing video games.
With that said, you know and I know that video games can get quite challenging. I remember when my buddies used to play DotA all the time, and they hit a wall. How? Well, they go against a team that knows how to kick ass.
I’m not talking about kicking butt every once in a while. I’m not talking about winning every once in a blue moon. I’m talking about winning like a machine, day in, day out.
These guys give out so many beatings that it’s not even funny. It’s like, you know you’re going to lose the moment you sign up against this team.
And it’s no surprise that a lot of my DotA buddies just simply gave up. I really can’t blame them. I mean, who can withstand a tremendous ego beating all day, every day? It gets old quickly.
This is why, when I switched over to League of Legends, I equipped myself properly. And a lot of this has to do with the fact that my wife told me that I can only play video games for 30 minutes a day. That’s it. After that there are going to be serious consequences, and I knew exactly what she meant.
So that was my situation. And for the longest time, I was basically beating my head against the wall because unfortunately, I would always draw really great players.
I don’t know where they came from, but these guys just continued to beat me. I mean, it got old.
At some point I thought I was a sadomasochist, you know? I was basically getting beat even before I started playing. That’s how bad it got.
Well, my fortunes started to change when I visited the right LoL accounts shop. I got the right equipment and I was able to hand out beatings while scaling up my skills. It really all boils down to the quality of the account.
Now, I wish I could tell you that this just happened magically. That I just found one shop, I took out some accounts and did it one time and things were smooth after that. Kind of like a Cinderella story.
Well, I’d be lying to you if I tell you that. That wasn’t the case. I would go from one LoL account shop to the next until I found the right one.
So do yourself a big favor. Don’t quit. Allow yourself to be challenged.
If your significant other says you can only play for 30 minutes, stick to that 30-minute time frame because believe me, you’re going to force yourself to come up with a solution, and both of you, along with your dogs, will be so much better for it.
