Hi, I am Kurt Ottman, and I like to help people, especially new players who don't actually know what to expect from a game like League of Legends.

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a shorter version of the pinpointer. It's recommended that you read the full thing though.

The first thing I can tell you 100% surely, is that this is a teamgame, which means you can be as good as you want, but in the end, it always comes down to what you and your team is capable of together. I'm here to pinpoint you in the right direction, so that you will always remember to have fun while playing, no matter how irritating and light-witted your teammates can get.
_______________________
Thanks for keeping up the read, lets start by warming up. I usually do a barrel roll when I warm up, but since this is a forum, we'll just trust you do enough of those at the gym, and move on to some simple steps:

1. Look at a point far away in the corner of your room, preferably the furthest. Don't stare, just look.

2. Close your eyes, and breath in through your nose. (Did you notice your mouth automatically close? It would look really weird if it didn't :P)

3. Now that you know how the furthest corner of your room looks like, and how the room smells with your eyes closed, sit correctly on your chair. If you're not sitting on a chair with a desk, find one now. You're gonna need it for maximum experience.

4. Carefully read the text below, slowly. DO NOT, and I mean NEVER read the words out loud. They might bite.
_______________________
Pinpoint your location

I have several tasks for you, or call it a set of quests, if you so prefer, which you must accomplish to always have fun in the game. You know the name of the game in question, so I won't need to utter it.

The first very important task is called pinpoint your location.

The task involves careful consideration of your reason for playing this particular game. I want you to consider a few questions below, just inside your mind, you never have to share them with others. In fact, don't, it's better that way. Just consider them carefully OK, ready?

Question 1: Have you ever seen or heard a toddler cry?

Question 2: Did you feel that toddlers sorrow, or was it just annoying in your eyes?

Question 3: Did you know that 70% of a toddlers reason for crying, is because they want attention?

Question 4: Did you know the answers to these questions also apply in-game?

Question 5: Are you willing to play with said answers kept in mind?

Okay, thank you for pinpointing your location for yourself. Lets move on.

_______________________
A sole driver

The next task is called a sole driver. If you're ready, we will move on.

First, click on this particular link right here.

Next, I want you to keep what you just read in mind, and apply that to absolutely every game you play. Absolutely, and unconditionally every game you play.

With that in mind, lets move on.

_______________________
The golden rule

You all know the golden rule right? But can you apply it in every situation?

The golden rule says: Do to others what you want others to do to you.

But what about if someone is mean to you? Doesn't that mean you can be mean back, since they literally want that to happen, according to the golden rule?

As a last task, I want you to read the poem below. We'll try to come to an agreement when it comes to this question:

Ambassador Poppy went to lane
with a Warwick none could tame
shouting, evil laughter came
tiny Poppy became her name

She wanted so to leave her post
hit him where it hurt the most
but Zilean the fair and wise
intended so to break the ice

He said: "Tiny Poppy, now listen well
for something important I have to tell
doesn't though the clock still tick
even though your friend's a prick?"

Poppy saw her only hope
in not stepping on the soap
was to overwhelm the Warwick so
with kindness not befitting a foe

Warwick returned an evil grin
"what is that you have on your chin?"
but when he saw her eager smile
his own faded, this wasn't his style

Who had thought the golden rule
was the final stroke on any fool?

Abridged version:

Someone asked for it, here it is: The shorter version of this little pinpointer, for all you who wants to get on the point at once.

Step #1: Pinpoint your location

Can you accept that some players may only be after attention, and might go solo raiding very much? Will this destroy your experience of the game entirely, or let it be an arena of learning for those players who doesn't yet know how to play?

Step #2: A sole driver

Lets cut to the chase: Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork :) You won't find a better reason, nor goal of playing this game than that. Teamwork is the key to both victory, and a lot of fun too!

Step #3: The golden rule

"Do to others what you want others to do to you".
The golden rule applies in every situation, even if someone is mean to you. The rule doesn't stop counting for yourself just because someone "asked for it". Bear this in mind, and you will have loads of fun ;)

I hope you liked this little pinpointer, and that you also can use when playing the game ;)

Very impressive :)

Perhaps this should go to the Art & Signature section, since poetry is art too.

My friends started calling me Captain Obvious... maybe this is another one ;D

^ Try this out, you will be impressed on how much more fun it will get. But it requires you to follow the steps too ;)

@Thalia Kael: Abridged version coming up!

@Ice Creamy: Thank you, that's kind, think I'll stick it here though, since it's a pinpointer for new players, and not a poem in itself ;)

Very nice topic man!
Tryed it out and believe it or not, it actually worked!

But I think your poem should be in the Art section, because this is art :)

But the poem is really important for this thread, and this thread is of huge importance to new players :) Thanks for your appreciation though :D

And John, I'm playing on EUNE, so I'll have to play with you on my main account. I'll send you a PM ;)
