What do you guys do in your free time? I mean, surely we live outside of our blogs and have activities that never make it into our posts, right? I’m still trying to learn where to find a few minutes of free time in the middle of running our businesses and raising our girls, but when I do, I LOVE taking photos.
Believe it or not though, I actually used to be into gaming on the computer. Some of you just rolled your eyes, didn’t you? Though those days have passed, my hubby still enjoys playing a game here or there. See, what happens around here is his brother starts playing some game. Then he introduces my hubby and a few of their childhood friends to play. Once they start getting into it, usually my father in law and hubby’s brother-in-law will even give it a go. That’s exactly how it went with the game he plays now, League of Legends. Last Christmas my hubby even hauled our desktop tower and television we use as a monitor over to my in-laws. He, his brother, and dad all holed themselves away in the spare bedroom playing matches with each other. In fact, even I played for a short while. 😉
If you’ve never heard of it (given that you usually come here to read about cloth diapers or DIY), it’s a team-based role-playing game where you battle the enemy team to destroy their fortress first. Basically, teams of 3 or 5 players (summoners) try to destroy the enemy’s turrets, inhibitors, and nexus to win. Summoners choose one of 116 current champions, each of which has their own distinct skills set and special abilities. For instance, my hubby plays the role of a support player, so he has been using Nami, Leona and even Sona recently. His goal is to keep his teammates alive by using healing attributes and such.
So hubby started playing League of Legends back when it was just starting Season 1 and it’s now closing in on the end of Season 3. In that time he’s gotten pretty good. Then we got the opportunity to try out Summoner School, which is basically a comprehensive guide to playing League of Legends that aims to make you a better team player and teach you the specifics of your chosen roles, and he says he’s never been a better player. As I’m sure you can guess, he’s the one who actually tried out the Summoner School so I’ll sum up the high and low points that he has told me.
-Summoner School teaches teamwork. Knowing how to set up a good team can be the difference between winning or not. Every team needs to make sure they have each role covered and that they work out where on the map they plan to play.
-Summoner School deals with trolls. Sometimes you end up in a game with a poor sport. They might trash talk their own team, start problems with the other team or sometimes they will even leave the game.
-Summoner School gets results. After only using it for a week or so, Jake was getting win after win. He soared though some rankings and is going to be a Silver level soon. Whatever the heck that means, right? 😉
So, if I happen to have any fellow summoners out there and you’re serious about having a better game-play, consider trying Summoner School for yourself.
