philipp  ·  2425 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are you reading now? Is it any good?

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.

I would've loved to see Gambit play a few more games, I just love their strength in offline tournaments even though they struggled in LCS. But since they lost to NJS i think SKTT1 will win it.

Who are you rooting for in the finals?

I changed it to that about half a year ago, because I was tired of my old name. If you're only playing this long, you will improve for sure. Just don't let your mood get ruined by some random soloQ teammates. The two-skills per button thing on Lee is also a problem for me, but a totally different one than yours. I get bored really fast when I play champions other than Lee because i just get the feel that i could do a lot more with 7 skills instead of 4. That's also why I started to play a bit of LeBlanc, because she also has 5/6 skills and the juking possibilities with her are just insane.

My IGN is Dàrth Invader and i play on EUW. I started playing in beta, but stopped for a while when SC2 came out. When I went back to LoL and tried to improve a bit, but that took some time. I was unranked in S1, got to gold at the end of S2 and I'm now sitting at Platinum V. My favorite champion is Lee Sin, so i play a lot of Jungle. The first champion I "mained" was Blitzcrank and I still go back to him from time to time. I follow the pro scene pretty closely by watching a lot of LCS and OGN, but because of the bad times for people from EU i can't see as much games from worlds as I'd like to.

My go-to game for about 3 years now is LoL. But i also play a lot of minecraft and some Dota 2. But I just started Dota 2 around 2 weeks ago, so I'm still getting used to it.
