League of Legends

If you can’t beat them, join them.

This one is for all the girlfriends out there who are tired of being in a competition with the PlayStation, Xbox or the PC.  Let’s be honest I think almost 90% of women out there go through the same ordeal.  In the last year I have learned that the love that people have for games is just not going to go away.  We can stop playing for a little, but we are just going to back to playing as soon as a friend breaks out a beer and says log in, the mates are all here. We can’t help it.

In the last year my relationship has only gotten stronger due to the time that we spend together playing League of Legends.  We play together and against each other and the competition get intense. (Like I want to sleep in the sofa every time he wins intense)

Now in this same year I have witnessed how a few relationships just deteriorate because they keep losing each other to the freaking game.  I’ve seen schedule conflicts, loss of interest and even judging because they don’t understand why we play so much.

The fact of the matter is that they won’t stop playing.  You can break the console, you can turn it off, you can do what you please and it’s just going to make things worse.  Because for us it’s disrespectful.  It’s disrespectful to disconnect the person that’s carrying the game, OK.  The people that are connected will be affected by this too, not to mention that you will get reported and you might even loose access to that account.  The account that you have invested five years of your life too, not to mention the money.  So, trust me when I say that it’s worth losing a marriage over this. So, relax.

My recommendation to you is that you sit down and at least learn whatever game they are playing.  Understand the skill required and get to know who your man is playing with.  These are important people, become a part of this awesome group.  Maybe you like it enough to play.  Hey, maybe your man needs a healer, or maybe a support. Make it a game between you too, make it fun and competitive. My husband and I have gaming dates and it’s the best thing ever.  Whatever the case may be if you can’t beat them (and you won’t), join them.
