Good god do people cry about it.
Meta this, Meta that. Took me a while to realize, not only do people not know what the meta is but what ‘a meta’ is. I am surely going to make a video about this but I have to collect my thoughts just a bit more. I think I can get it all out in under 2 mins but if I am not causes that torrent could push to 20 mins.
Complaining and negativity are going to be the enemy on this one. If league is your game please hold your hate at bay for just a bit, as I explain why I don’t want the meta to sleep with the fishes.
The meta gains its power, not from how fantastic it works under all situations, but from the very fact that you know what it is. That’s why we need it and that’s why you should at least consider it.
When you Que up for a match you don’t know who you are going to end up with or what they are like. Getting people to try and communicate about the actual game is like pulling teeth. Even if you have the best idea ever. Trying to explain what you are going to do and the adjustment everyone else has to make without the base line of the meta, would be impossible.
Right or wrong, must players know what the meta is. Which makes it a starting point so we have the smallest notion of what the other players are going to do.
Someone grabs and AP character, we all pretty much know they plan to go mid unless they say otherwise.
No one thinks the meta is magic but it does have value. Well, it has value until you have a full team. Then throw that crap out of the window and make up whatever plan you all want.
After this I wanted to go on to talk about what makes the meta. Why it is so, but I think that’ll work better as another post.
I just want to do everything. I want to draw, paint, make game, groundbreaking apps, YouTube tutorials and play every instrument. Eventually it becomes clear that my time is just so limited. Trying to pour myself to thin caught up with me again.
I don’t enjoy failing to fallow through but I also don’t like to be afraid to give an honest try. So here is where I stand.
My plan to write a book is on the back burner now. It take so very long and I have so much to catch up on, when it comes to writing. I’ll have to try again another time. It’s like I read somewhere, “Sometimes you have to kill your darlings”. It’s time to start killing some of those darlings.
I’ll never be ready to write if I don’t practice at all. So, I want to start up on this and keep it going. It doesn’t take me too much to type something up and there are things I want to share that fit better here then anywhere else. I’d say it’s about 50% ego and the realization that getting what I want to say out, will only improve the more ways I do it. Daily is too much for me. Everyday I missed just made me less likely to pick it back up. So, this’ll have to be as often as I have something to say.
Trying to run 3 youtube channels was also way way too much. I am dropping or super slowing 2 of them. HelpMeNotSuck is still doing well enough to keep alive and I find it fun. Looking back at my old work it’s nice to see that I am getting better. That alone is enough to keep me going. Most of my videos average(with no advertising) around 30 views. If I post them, that turns in to about 200. I did have my first major success of over 57k views on a single video. Good god was that invigorating.
Awww man, I have turned in to one of those posters that has to give the, “I am sorry I stopped, but I am back”… but, I am sorry I stopped. I am back now 🙂
