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.

5 Reasons why we Play.

Hello again!! Thank you for joining me once more. So, I’m going to start off with letting you guys know that we are all adults. Our age group is 25-35 with pretty successful jobs and pretty big kids. Now this is just to show you that gaming is not only for kids and teenagers. With this blog I want to share the reasons why we keep playing and why we are not going to stop. We are a group of 6-8 people (soon to be more) that have different reasons why we play but we have the same goal in mind. We really see this as a challenge and we want to get better. Whether is in Overwatch, League of Legends or any other game in particular. For my specific case the reason why I keep playing is because I want to get better than my brothers someday. So here we go, five reasons why we play.

Reason number 5.

To be honest as adults we like to drink. So, we have created a pretty cool drinking game. Since we are in our house we don’t spend too much money, we buy a few beers split them between everyone and we are all safe and sound in our homes. There is only one rule and it’s pretty simple. If you die, you drink. It does not end well for me in most cases. (I’m always dying). It’s actually pretty funny and the insults get pretty intense. Drinking makes everything a little bit more interesting.

Reason number 4

Family time is golden for us so for reason number 4 I have to say that we play because we like to spend time with each other. This is our time and it’s super important to us and if someone doesn’t want to play we get offended. Not really but we expect everyone to be present and alive, well for most of the game. They can’t feed on purpose because we will report them.


This keeps our family up to date with stuff that’s happening in our life’s and we actually speak to each other. A message in Facebook just isn’t enough for us anymore so we have grown accustomed to this game time. We try to play every Tuesday without fail.

Reason number 3

This reason is actually very important to me. I release a lot of stress while I’m playing this game. So, reason number 3 is that gaming helps with our daily stress and tension build up from work. In reason number 5 I let you guys now that the insults get pretty intense, well screaming and yelling actually makes me feel better and laughing at our fails is the cherry on top. I say that everyone should play at least 3-4 hours a week. My coworkers actually ask me if I was up late playing cause even though I’m tired I’m in a very good mood so my sales actually get a little boost because of this.

Reason number 2

You can be social in these games. I’ve met amazing people just because we have a mutual interest in these games. I’ve met new friends through my brothers and we love to play with them. Even though we may not see them ever, it’s still a way to socialize and practice those very import skills. Because I’ve become accustomed to talking to random people I’ve become better at expressing myself through the phone, this means that it has a direct effect in my career so I see more value in this game.

Reason number 1

I left this for number one for a reason. I speak for myself on this one but I really hope everyone shares my same thoughts.  After I succeed in a game I feel like I accomplished something.


This feeling last for a few days but I feel recognized and motivated to set more ambitious goals in my life. Like this blog for example. I experience a few emotions at the same time even feeling love for the game at one moment. The best way to explain it would be that I feel real passion for this game and I want to mimic this passion with my work and my family. For me it’s not just an escape from work, for me it’s the most important, I can even say the most productive thing I can do in a day. I simply love gaming and I appreciate everything that comes with it. Even the frustrating fails. I want everyone that reads this to feel the same way! And these are a few of the reasons why we play and of course why we are not going to stop.

The Official Newb

Hey guys! welcome to The Official Newb. My name is Merangelis and I am the owner and creator of this awesome new page.  I think it’s pretty accurate when I say that I am a newb, in the whole sense of the word.  I’m new at gaming and let’s just say that my progress is somewhat unnoticeable (I am really, really bad) . This is exactly why I’m creating a place where I can share my gaming experiences and frustrations with people like me. When I started playing games i never thought that I could get so into it, I didn’t understand the skill required to be “good” at these things. I can say that I have invested a year into this game and you can barely tell that I’m improving and I play like 8 hours a week.  The people I play with don’t enjoy the game very much.

The official game is League of Legends.  League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows and macOS.   It’s the greatest game ever created.  It is fast-paced, competitive, it requires speed and intensity.  It’s two teams full of over powered champions different in every way with awesome designs going head-to-head across multiple battlefields and game modes.  What I love about this game is that is always being updated and they are always working on new champs.  This is the source of my pain but at the same time is what I think about about almost all day cause I just want to get better.  We also play, Counter Strike, Fortnite, Overwatch, PubG, The Elder Scrolls Legends and many more.

The reason we love to play is because it opens a world of communication across the whole globe, you don’t now who you are gonna end up playing with or against.  You make new friends, meet new people all without having to leave your house.  Sometimes gaming can be an escape from our sometimes boring and monotonous lives.  Another reason I believe we love video games is because they give us a sense of accomplishment. This is exactly why we want to learn as much as we can so that we can teach.  We have passion for these games and they make us happy and we are very excited to share, inspire, elevate experiences and engage with people from all over the world that share the same love that we have for playing the game.  We look forward to sharing the battlefield with you guys in our future endeavors.
