Been slacking.

To been slacking on these but here’s an update from my phone at 3:13 am so I don’t need to worry about not posting anything.

Games have been progressing well. I am definitely improving. MMR and rank are moving around a lot but that’s just part of the process I think. As I focus on improving my gameplay in one area my focus on the others fades for a while. Anyway we’re still hovering Gold. I’m working on getting platinum and feel that all I need is a nice win streak to bump myself out of my current place on the ladder.

There have been some FUN games. That’s not me saying fun like I normally do sarcasticly while I complain my AD Carry isn’t doing any damage. I honestly have played around 500 ranked matches so far and around 10 of them have been awesome. Everyone understands how to play. Everyone is thinking together. Teams are evenly matched. Win or lose I love these games. That’s why I want to get higher ranking. I want MORE of the evenly matched games that I can comfortably focus on my play instead of trying to organize 4 idiots. It’s awesome. My stream viewers know these games when they happen too.

Korea has been cooling down a bit and my accomodations are a lot cooler now too. I’m excited to wear hoodies. I just like being comfy and although my T1 tanks ain’t bad nothing beats a hoodie and sweatpants in my book. I’ve started a daily routine of getting a snack or coffee at a convenience store just down the street because it forces me to get outside. Not that I wasn’t leaving my place much but at least I am in the habit of a little bit of movement.

Runescape was taking up a lot of my focus too and I started to notice myself straying from my objectives. I’m now signed out when in game so I don’t get distracted. No need to lose games because I’m checking my fishing in runescape.

Trying to get some tickets booked for watching World’s in October but they are still unavailable. I’ve got the pages bookmarked and check them regularly to make sure I don’t miss out.

2 more things. I’m going to make patch rundown videos starting 8.18 and do some VoD reviews of pro games. Just as some fun and extra content plus casting might be of interest to me in the future so practicing now although it might be seen as a late start is better than never.

Thanks for your time. Stay tuned 🙂

Update #2

Hey not trying to slip up on these updates I’ve been keeping them pretty good. So here’s some new information!

Sleep schedule

I have been making a couple changes to my sleep schedule. I’m on a more or less North American sleep schedule right now. Waking up around 9:00 PM KST and streaming for about 8 hours. Stream numbers haven’t been climbing quickly but my regulars are definitely growing. More familiar faces and more community building. Slow and steady and I’m keeping up a good flow of content for the stream.

League of Legends

I’ve just made it back to Gold 2. Been a bouncy boi. Ups and downs and a lot of games I could be winning lost. I’m definitely learning. My current role is support (WHAT?!) Thresh, Alistar, and Taric will be my free ticket to Platinum. I feel like the Gold 2 players are nearly my current skill level. Most understand rotation and can look at the minimap. Mechanical skill is much more commonly to an acceptable level where I can comfortably trust people to follow up. Still having a good time but I’ve been going a month straight on League with over 300 games already. Keep up the good fight!

Korean living

I attended a few matches of GSL vs the World and had a great experience. Serrel is a monster. I am keeping up with LCK and GSL and would like to make some YouTube videos around them. Loving it. Food situation is really coming together for budgeting. Not that I can’t afford food but a key part of my living here is to keep expenses to a complete minimum. So far I’ve had no difficulty in staying below 100,000 Won /$100 a month on food. All together I’m at about $600 Canadian a month. I’ll detail some more budgeting and price breakdowns soon.

Thanks homies!
