I'm about 400 pages into the second part of The Kingkiller Chronicle: "Day Two: The Wise Man's Fear". And I love it! I read the first one in about 3 days because I couldn't stop reading. But now I'm reading a bit slower because the last one isn't out yet. But I'm really amazed by how well it's written.

Their whole album Stereo Typical is great. You should definitely give it a listen!

That's the thing. I play it since beta and there is still so much to do, that I haven't even tried a lot of mods yet.

I'm not sure if you replied to the wrong person, but Copenhagen isn't really close to Austria. But I have to agree, it's really beautiful here, especially in winter.

I've been playing less lately too, but not because it's stressful or something like that. I just hit my goal of platinum a month ago and since then I tried leveling my smurf (level 28 atm) but that gets boring pretty quickly. The key to ranked imo is to play for yourself and not care about what others say. The mute button is also pretty useful, I just mute someone as soon as I see them being negative, because I don't want my mood ruined by some stranger just because of a game. I also turned all-chat off and that helped a lot, because i don't see the flaming between the teams then.

I live in Salzburg, Austria. The city where W.A. Mozart was born.

I know about /r/loleventvods but watching it live is a cometely different experience imo.

There are lots of great servers, you don't even have to play with your buddies to have fun on most servers because the minecraft community is one of the nicest I've ever seen. Most servers are happy to welcome new members and will also help you if you want to start a big project.

Well, as someone living in EU, I'm also not sure how I'm gonna watch it, because games start at 5:00 AM for me. I'm still not sure if I should just stay awake or wake up early.

The sponsorship part isn't even the best part about this. It's the sponsored amateur league. This will bring up a lot of new EU and NA teams and will also make the EU and NA pro scene better. The biggest advantage KR has over EU and NA is their strong amateur scene, they have lots of great teams over there and they keep getting better because there are so much possible scrim partners. But in EU and NA there are 8 LCS teams and you can't scrim half of them because you're gonna be playing them the following week and you don't want to reveal any strategies. But with a stronger amateur scene you can just scrim those teams without revealing anything.

Definitely minecraft. I've spent thousand of hours on this game. I can just play singleplayer to chill for some time or go on some multiplayer server and build something huge. The opportunities in this game are just infinite and that's what I love about it. And it's one of the easiest games to pick up again after not playing for a while. Doesn't matter how much I'm sucked into the story of some other game, I keep going back to good old minecraft.
