If you rage over your friend being bad you are one of the toxic people, teach him to play instead. Everyone isn't born a magical MOBA hero, to be upset about someone "sucking" is more a problem than someone actually being bad.
I just don't like to lose... Am I toxic? We obviously gave him tips and tried to help but it really wasn't making a difference. Like I said we didn't berate the kid or anything, it was just annoying to watch him dive towers and generally feed the **** out of whoever he was laning against.
Whenever an SC2 game features a turtly brood lord zerg, I sort of wonder why I'm even watching. SC2 games in general have much more buildup/downtime than a LoL game before serious interaction occurs (ex: laning starts @ ~2 mins, and stuff can happen before that too). In general, an SC2 cast is often just the casters identifying what build(s) are going on, and what you can expect & when. A LoL game & cast can be much more chaotic though, with 3+ areas of interest even from the early game. The sacrifice is that you almost never 100% know what's going on everywhere like you can in an SC2 cast, at least before full on teamfights start happening.
Sounds like a very jelly hater to me. I like both games myself, they're both super entertaining at the highest level.
That actually makes a lot of sense... I will admit I feel the same way during some turtly sc2 casts.
I will say it must take much more skill to successfully CAST a league of legends games. During a team fight it looks like a total cluster****ball of pixels and effects going off all at once, and the casters always seem to know exactly what's going on. Maybe it's due to my inexperience with all the champions and what their abilities are, I guess.
Yeah, the learning curve of champion abilities/interactions can be rough. I'd say if you want to get the most of your LoL spectating experience without playing too much, I'd suggest looking up each champ that is being played. It won't be perfect without the experience of playing with/against the champions, but having at least a small understanding of their capabilities is better than being like "WTF is Thresh? What is flay/death sentence? WTF IS GOING ON HERE?!"
will watch later but bahahahaha that's hilarious. Was "EGIdra" ever his clan tag? That seems obviously fake.
last fall when i got WoL i started in bronze having never played rts since i was like 12 playing command and conquer. i played someone "EGIdra" as zerg, and since i had watched sc2 for a while i was like oh ok, 6 pool otw. snap wall and he 6ps but im so bad and lose to 1 base banes
