So, today I went of the league of legends reddit and read a post about the meta. You can read it here:
What I took from it was that people lose the game not because of stuff like team comp or anything like that, but because they throw it.
I mean, you can get outplayed, and lose the game. But if you really think about it, it's nearly impossible to win 100% of the time. So if you just keep learning and playing, you can actually get more from losing a game than winning one, as a gamer.
I'm going to crib a quote from someone I like: Gaming should be about mastering challenging mechanics, learning and growing from our mistakes, and gaining a sense of achievement from the Game.
With this in mind, the real reason that people lose games becomes clear. They lose FOCUS. They can't keep their eyes on the prize, and start making stupid mistakes ~ Mistakes that they've already made, or that they are so mad, they can't understand and learn from them.
That's why the most important part of gaming is the gaming focus. The ability to take in everything, yet not be affected by it, in order to use 100% of your potential, at the same time growing and getting stronger. To my readers, I'll have something to say: The next time you read someone rage at you, take a step back (when you have a free moment and aren't in danger of dying of course.) Read it, and even if you don't believe it, try to act as if you do. Then, depending whether or not you do better, take into consideration what they said, as a gamer. This way, even if you lose, you can get stronger.
Raging and trolling may be the most instinctive thing to do, but these things will not help you get stronger. You must learn, and get better.
Fistful of Force
