Got the client running in the background as I type this in a bot game to check my ping and this thought randomly popped into my head. I've been playing the game on and off for the past 10 years and that's the only thing that's been consistent in my life since starting high school.
For that, I appreciate Riot and all the efforts they've made to better the game whether or not the results were positive or not. I started playing in high school with a few close friends and was immediately addicted. I hadn't been addicted to a game before this. While trying to juggle partying, studying and playing sports, League was always there for me to fall back on when I was just in a funk or drunk. After high school I joined the lovely Military and didn't have as much time to play but try to climb I did.
This game brings out the worst in me. Seriously. I remember there were multiple seasons when I was just perma chat-banned. I don't know what it is about the game that makes me want to literally reach into my monitor and choke the living fuck out of whoever is controlling this digital character. Maybe I think I'm better than I really am, maybe I'm actually the next Tarzaned but these gold fucks are trolling me – not too sure. Throughout my years in the Military I've had to change servers due to deployments and playing with a team that I can communicate clearly with has long been lost. But I still spam ping. I spam ping till I can't ping no more. Then I ping some more. And sometimes it works! I just hit plat 4 a few days ago and I'm so excited to keep climbing. I could say I've been in a funk for a few years with trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life and I'm honestly happy to have figured it out. With only a few months left before I transition out of the Military, League lets me chill out and stay out of trouble. Bored Marines aren't good for anybody and my bank account for sure felt that the past 1-2 years. Now I'm trying to get my finances right and hit Diamond before I come back stateside.
I know once I exit the Military I will have to really hit the ground running. There's a lot of catching up to do and League can't be a priority for my free time but I think it will always be a comfort space for me. To be honest one of the things I look forward to the most is having fiber internet where I could play with <20 ping and also be streaming Netflix or Twitch.
Well, looks like my ping's calmed down a bit for me to play some Udyr. I hope you guys appreciate this game as much as I do and I hope it won't go anywhere anytime soon. <3
