Damn LoL Rage Quitters almost got me fired – again.
So I was playing LoL at the ass crack of dawn this morning, trying to raise my ELO. I am still pretty new to LoL so had to solo que. That means that I basically have to get lucky and hope I do not get placed on a team with nbes. Well I am about 0-3 today. Ok, let me rephrase… I was kicking ass but I had teammates who didn’t know how to play! They rushed in, got killed, and gave opponents points – which means his good teammates, IE me, got bent over.
Normally, I do not care because playing LoL is what I do during my 7 am conference calls. It is so much more entertaining then listening or thinking about work and boring business stuff. Sorry team, it is not like you ever read my blog anyway. So back to my point. I am kicking ass and being totally awesome in my 3rd ELO when a teammate dies for the 5th straight time. Let’s count 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 …5 times he died! I am obviously pretty livid. I need to get my rank up on the North American Server and then to top it off something else happened – he said we all suck and quit.
I flipped out. “You stupid piece of bleeeeep…” Then I heard it, the most beautiful sound in the World that almost made me shit my pants, “Jack!” For you new people to my blog, that is my name, my beautiful, sweet, and innocent name. It was at that moment that I realized I did not mute my skype conference call. “Jack, how many times have we discussed this. You need to stay focused during our business calls! Maybe we should talk again after this call…” Son of a bitch, this sucks.
Anyway after my little phone rant it reminded me of a new direct tv commercial with Charlie Sheen… “Don’t reenact scenes of platoon with Charlie Sheen.” If you haven’t seen this commercial then check it out. Funny as shit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2ZYIdmdx14. But this commercial got me thinking. Not only did it make me laugh, but it reinforced the idea of why GamerPeer.com was founded.
