I have been playing league of legends for about a year now, and since I was introduced to it by a friend, it has become the game I play the most, outclassing Minecraft and outlasting Starcraft II, my previous favorites. It takes my preferred elements from both of the above, specifically the hardcore strategy of SC II, and the teamwork component of Minecraft (I mostly played PvP and faction servers).

However, there is a problem with both of these desirable traits. They both are conditional on the team with which you are playing with; and this is really the crux of the problem. There are really three groups of people you can play with: random people, your irl or close online friends, and a team or group with which you play regularly.

Playing with your friends initially seems like the ideal option, but in reality is very situational. Firstly, all of your friends must be at approximately similar skill levels, mechanically. Secondly, your friends must be dedicated, interested and flexible enough to play at regular intervals, and play consistently well. Thirdly, your friends must be willing to accept leadership, develop and test strategies, and generally get in the team mindset. This is probably the least likely, very few friends groups will work with this. Conclusion: playing with your friends is fun, but it is more of a social game than a hardcore team/strategy game.

Playing with random people really doesn’t work. I have played with probably upwards of 8,000 different people, and of those, maybe 50 made my experience more positive and fun. You can’t get much better playing with these dysfunctional teams of people who just met each other and have an inset assumption that the majority of their team is hopelessly incompetent. Any given team will likely have someone who will rage at every mistake that is made, someone who will suicidally charge regardless of and someone who hates everyone indiscriminately. This is why playing with random people doesn’t reliably work well.

However, the majority of these people are probably decent, normal people, if it weren’t for their preexisting assumption that their teams are made of losers. Therefore, the third option comes to light. Why not establish a group of people, people who are interested in the same thing you are, from the largest possible pool available? Why not test them extensively for dedication, compatibility and amiability? Why not find a team based on the exact traits you are looking for, rather than trying to apply those traits to people who really don’t fit them?

I am seeking a group of 4-6 individuals who are friendly, innovative, and fun to interact with. I am in EST and would prefer people who have the flexibility to play at a consistent hour for a reasonable time a number of days a week. Please be over 16 years old, level thirty, and have at least 200 games (normal games are fine, this is just mechanical experience) under your belt.

If you are interested and feel like, for once in life, you would like to play without people who hate your guts, please reply with the following:

1) Email address at which you will be able to be contacted
2) League of Legends Username
3) Skype username (tryouts will be held using Skype, once a team is established, further consideration may take place regarding the choice of communication program)
4) Least favorite of the traditional meta roles, and why
5) Any additional information you think persuasive (please note that this section, like the others, is mandatory XD)

Thank you, and I apologize for the massive wall of text, I’m just rather happy to finally be doing this.

Any specific reason why you need to be 16? I'm 14, played league since I was 12. I have over 900 wins if you include s2/s3 wins, but I'm 14. Pm me if you get this.

4) I dislike TopLane the most though it is one of my favorite lanes to play, I feel it is one of the game deciding factors. Top lane snowballs too easily and can leave a game completely one sided with no room for recovery.
5) I've been playing League for about a year now and I have played it exclusively. I am 17 years old, and I can play just about any role that is needed. My favorite roles are, Top, Mid, and ADC. I'm pretty laid back.

It's about being reasonable mature. He might think 16 is enough or thats his age, I don't know. Some younger players(Not saying you) have some what lower concentrate :)

1)emilcalderon@hotmail.com
2)Celfid(not my main account, been playing my LoL carrier on EUW where my name is Oltir, please check it up and decide, leveling up for me is no problem. Just want the chance to prove my self, basiclly be open minded)
3)emilcalderon
4)Honestly I can't say I have a least favorite: /
5)I've been playing for more than a year now and feel like I can play any role, understand what I have to do and be awake for certain situations
I'm 19 years old and my main and favorite role is actually adc, not as fun when you don't have the support that does not know how to play it, or different mindset. Shall we go aggressive if not. A little note, Ez is not my main adc :p Don't like his slow animation on attack

1) Contact me in-game, I don't really care to put my email out for everyone
2) CardMinnow
3) See number 1
4) Junggle, for some reason I can't ever get the mix between ganking and farming right
5) I mostly play mid, but I can support and top fairly well. When I am allowed to play mid (which is not as often as I would like, solo que being what it is) I almost always win my lane, and am able to help other lanes. I prefer to play bursty, roaming mages (Twisted Fate is my favorite) but can play tankier mages as well.
