    LoL = DOTA master race.

    It would be one of the best games around if the community wasn't absolute shite.

    every so often i think about trying a moba game to see what all the hype is about. then i read about all the faggotry the "communities" suffer from.
    if i wanted to hear 12 year-olds whine and scream about shit, i'd go down to my subbasement.

    Pro-gaming is such a waste of time. I mean, online gaming is fun, and if you're good at it that's cool and can be a real ego-booster sometimes.

    But making it to the top takes tremendous time and effort, and if you spent that time and effort, on say, real sports, not only would you make more money, you'd get laid too.

    pro-gaming is ruining gaming in general. if it wasn't for the fixation koreans have on starcraft as an e-sport, blizzard might have made starcraft 2 worth playing longer than the time it took me to finish the story.
    sc2 is the most uninteresting rts i've had the unfortunate pleasure of playing in the last five years.

    fuck you blizzard.

    So basically, this is what happens when America adopts the Korean Idea of competitive video gaming.

    Anything with prize money has a danger of being fixed. The WORST is when your math allows certain matches not to change standings, those people think are "ok" to fix. They had a big problem with this in sumo wrestling, as there was a particular match in a series of matches that wouldn't hurt the guy who was winning to lose, and would really help the loser out, so there was an insane statistical bias of the winner losing, it was a huge scandal.
