Why do I do this to myself

Like many men my age, and younger, I play video games. The one game that is the bane of my existence is League of Legends. I have installed and uninstalled this game currently 2 times. I am back for the third time because I feel like I have unfinished business. What is this unfinished business you ask? Well I’ll tell you but pull up a chair and sit back.

League of Legends (LoL) is what’s called a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena). There are 5 people per team and the objective is take the other teams base. Pretty simple right? I’d agree but having played this game for many hours it’s not! I should add to this that there is a ranking system as well. 

The ranks go from bronze 5, the lowest of the low, all the way to challenger which is right at being considered a professional. The majority of people who play this game find themselves in bronze, silver or gold. As I mentioned I’m in bronze 5 and have been for quite sometime. It’s hard to get out of this level. There are people who don’t think that it is but it is. Now a lot of it is about improving yourself and your game play. However there are 9 other players on the rift the control Ute to this equation as well. And this is where this simple game becomes not so simple. It becomes very frustrating.

So this is where I find myself. And you may be asking yourself why do I even bother to frustrate myself with this game? I ask myself as well. I’ll never be challenger or diamond but there is something in my head that keeps telling me I’m not this bad. All I want to do is climb out of bronze and I to silver. Once I have reached this I will be done and move on.

Have a great Sunday everyone.
