LoL wait time? Opportunity or another frustrated Gamer?

Posted in GamerPeer.com with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2012 by Jack Of all Trades

It is 2:40 pm and I want to play League of Legends.   Shit!  I have to wait how long to be able to play?  15 minutes on a Monday afternoon at 2:40 pm?  “Isn’t that a pain in the toosh :x.”  It really makes you wonder what the heck everyone is doing with their lives to fill up a massively scalable server in the afternoon.  What losers…  Oh goodie I am finally in. haha

But on a serious note, the last few weeks I have been having issues logging into LoL because it is so popular now.  Being that I have a lot of free time on my hands, I decided to try and capitalize on this “loading time.”  So what did I do?  I went to GamerPeer.com and started looking for people who might also be bored, wanting to chat about LoL, and looking for partners once we are able to get in and finally play.  “Jack, you may be onto something…”  I know.

I started creating a deck that could make Riot’s load time more enjoyable and get people excited about finally being able to play… not leaving and playing a new game.  Here are a few slides.

As everyone can tell – GamerPeer has the potential to make that 15 min – 3 hour + wait time more enjoyable.  Please share comments or concerns if you think this is a great idea.  All likes, posts, responses, additional ideas are welcome.

What a beautiful day…

Hot as balls – time to play video games

Time to turn the AC on, get a coke, pull down the shades, and play video games.  Seriously, it is an absolutely brilliant idea.  Think about it, a lot of the servers I play on are all US East, East, North America, etc… and who plays video games at this time of the day?  Kids out of middle school and high school.  That is right – it is the perfect opportunity to pick up your sticks and enjoy a few hours of gaming and kicking the ass of middle school kids.

“Jack, that is probably one of the most messed up things you have said on this blog… so far.”  True, but for the hardcore gamers out there, let me explain.  From about 10 am (need that pre day workout) most gamers are working till about 5 then go to Happy Hour – till about 10.  My mathematics could be off but I am just stating my typical post drink experience.  As I was saying – from about 10am – 10 pm, most of the gamers online are teens who haven’t quite developed their hand eye coordination or motor skills.  They seem to be a few millionths of a second behind – HAHA nbes.  🙂 But knowing that – double up on XP boosts and win games.

For me I seem to only win games during these hours – so what do I do – farm and exploit this flaw so it appears that I am actually good or a high rank.  It is the fastest way to level and keeps you away from the sunlight, genius!  If you are one of those skilled gamers, or want to find people like you to play with during this heat wave, why not check out GamerPeer.com?  That’s what I am doing!  Private information is hidden, but atleast you will be able to find people who play the same games and have same personality/interests.  Wait a second – if my best matches are with nbe teens, does that mean I am a nbe teen as well who hasn’t developed motor skills?  Damn this is like a psychological conundrum that must be explored in more depth… after a few games of LOL and COD.

GamerPeer Landing Page

Alright so here is the deal.  My boy Jordan –  a college student studying graphic design got bored and decided to change GamerPeer’s entire layout and design of the site.  What an ass.  After spending hours tracking him down I finally get a hold of the kid and told him to stop doing amazing designs and layouts because they were silly looking.  I didn’t say silly but said a naughty word that ended in hitty.

I was obviously kidding because he is a very talented graphic designer but I somehow used my charm and wit to convince him to create a new landing page mock up for GamerPeer.com.  This is what he came up with.

GamerPeer design, layout, multiplayer gaming, matchmaking, games, gamer, graphic design

Jordan’s new design

If i get enough likes and comments of his design I will update GamerPeer.com’s splash page to his.  Please leave feedback and comments.  It will be greatly appreciated.
