So I’ve had an idea for a very specific livestream bouncing around in my head for a while now, and I guess it’s about time to talk about it. I’ve mentioned it on Twitter a couple times, but haven’t really gone into the details – not that there’s many details to go into. I’ve never played League of Legends. I’ve watched a few matches in spectator mode, and hear about it a fair chunk on twitter, but I’ve not actually played a game. This is partly because up until recently I haven’t really felt like playing though apparently I’ve had the game installed since November of last year (I say ‘apparently’, because I still have no memory of installing the game). But it’s also because I want to livestream my first game of LoL ever. Which is simple enough to do, really. Start streaming, queue for a match, feed, done deal.
Really, I want to livestream my first match over, while talking to friends – who will, by necessity have to be tolerant of my nubocity – in skype/mumble while I feed bots. Ah yes, it would be a bot game. I have enough interest currently that I could already do this with a 3v3 bot game, but I’d like to do it in a 5v5 bot game.
This is where you come into play, gentle reader. If you would be willing to take part in this, let me know on twitter. There are some ground rules though. The most important requirement other than being able to play LoL (sorry non-Windows OSers [excluding dual booters, and windows emulators obv.]) is a sense of humour. If you treat this match like a serious match, even though it will be against bots, chances are you’re gonna have a bad time (as I’ve been keeping myself woefully uninformed). Secondly, Skype or Mumble installed. You don’t have to have a microphone, but if you do, it will be lulz-enhancing. Finally, you must be able to get along with the other players. I only mention this last point because I actually had a nightmare last night about my twitter friends having a fight and not getting along. Don’t make my nightmare come true, people.
Assuming you’re interested, let me know on Twitter. Once I have enough people interested, I’m going to have to sit down and figure out when a good time for all of us is so I can schedule the match. Sooner would be better, of course, as if I can’t fill the remaining two slots, I’m likely to just stream/play a 3v3 bot match. Keeping myself uninformed goes against the way I usually do things, and it’s driving me a bit nuts. There’s guides galore out there for LoL, and not looking at them is hard.
