I'd like to officially welcome our third member, Blancka, who plays AP Carry.
alyriae was the second member, and mains Support.
That means there is only jungle and support left folks- wrapping that up today hopefully.
Update #2 for today.
Try outs are being held at EST (American- thats GMT -5) between 8-12pm. Try outs end wednesday this week.
Last chance to get in. If you can't make it- and still want in, PM me/comment here if im not on. Something may be able to be arranged.
Update 26/11/2012 (d/m/y)- 28/11/2012
Im just updating this again with some of the results of the recent tryouts, and those that made it to the second stage of tryouts. If you didn't get into the first stage, don't worry, as there will be a second stage (kind of like double elimination) to see who gets in. I figure everyone deserves two shots. Anyways, as i haven't played with everyone yet, this isn't a complete list, stage two tryouts are as follows:
People removed from tryouts because they either couldn't make it/weren't what i was looking for.
Tek it eazy
Will update more after this game.
Update 20/11/2012 (d/m/y)
Hey everyone again,
So, after giving people a chance to join up as a final call, i've decided that the official try outs will be this weekend. So thats the weekend of the 23-25 of this month. Extra bonus points may be given to people who join my games on a regular basis. So if you wish to get to know me, and some of the people you'll be playing against over the weekend, just give me a message if you see me online.
If i've yet to add you online/you want to be in this- let me know asap.
Current plan is: friday night-saturday morning to play with the GMT positive people, and saturday night/sunday morning to play with the GMT negative people. Note that because of the time difference, if you are GMT negative, it's pretty much saturday morning and evening. Exact times soon(tm).
Hope to game with you all soon- and best of luck in your league games.
Update 18/11/2012 (11/18/2012 for Americians)
Hey everyone, it's me again. So, after having a lot of waiting- here are the tryouts:
Adding your fellow team mates and coming up with a strategy is perfectly acceptable. Also note that i will be making 2 teams, one that i'm a part of, and entering any tournaments i'm invited to, and hoping to grab 5 others to scrim against, about twice a week. They will also be our "subs", so if you're *not* interested, be sure to let me know, otherwise i'll probably invite you to that team. ^.^
Team 1: (gmt +8)
Support: The Naked Phone
Team 2: (gmt -8 to gmt -5)
Team 3: (gmt -8 to gmt -6)
ADC: SKT Realize
Team 4: (gmt -10 to gmt -5)
Team 5 (gmt +6 to gmt +10)
ADC: Me (most likely)
Jungle: Elo Grinder
Mid: Tek it eazy
Team 6 (timezone unknown)
Jungle: Dj Patricia
edit if i've put you in a spot you don't like, let me know asap- post here if im not online. I'll swap you if i can.
My current plan is to do a set of scrims against each other, i.e. Teams 2v3- 3v4- 2v4- 1v5 etc. Currently this should work with the timezones differences, as the biggest gap is team 4, witch has a 5 hour difference, if the poses a problem, i can step in. I've played with a lot of you already, and i know you're really good- all of you. I hope you're all still interested, if not, let me know as i'll have to organise something else.
Also, don't stress if your team loses, i'll be watching how you play, as well as how you interact with the team. The offical voip will be Skype, as everyone seems to have it. If you wanna use anything else, let me know, as i'll be listening in on skype to hear how you guys interact with each other- and to see if anyone rages/says negative things constantly. Critism is only good if its constructive. Saying "noob stop feeding" does nothing but make the person feel worse. Saying "warding top bush, and letting him push the lane will help against ganks- then continue to point out where the enemy jungler is if you have vision.
For anyone else who is interested
There is a few days left, but not long. I'll only be adding one more group, at best, and that means there is only one position left in each role, first in, best dressed. Hope to game with you all later.
>And relax everyone. Don't stress about having a bad game, play your best, and remember, you have 3 games to show me how you play. Best of luck and "may the odds be ever in your favour." -Hunger Games.<
Hey there, my name is IAmYourAlly, and i'm interested in making a new team. I want this to be semi serious, where everyone is willing to try their best and constantly improve. You have to be willing to take criticism and watch replays of our games. You must always have a positive attitude- play to win, and also to have fun.
I don't want to hear any of this "surrender" business.
A bit about myself
I'm not the best player- i'll be the first to admit. Its likely that you aren't either. However, i'm willing to get better, and so should you. I mainly play adc/mid, and started playing LoL about a year ago. I think i've gotten slightly better, and im learning a few things.
I'm a community based guy, i love helping people. I'm here to play well though, so i don't want to hear excuses, and sometimes i can come off as harsh- don't take it personally though, i'm just suggesting things. ^.^
Give me criticism as well- its the only way to get better.
For anyone interested i'm 19 and live in Australia, currently a student.
Before you ask to join/A bit about the team
Currently, there is no one "official" as part of the team. I mainly play ADC's but no positions are set in stone. Edit Happily willing to give a position that i enjoy to someone else if they are better. Note however that positions are not set in stone, so feel free to apply even if you are best at ADC.
i) Must have a mic and skype is preferable.
ii) Must not rage at out fellow teams. If I/a fellow team mate calls you out for something and you argue, blame everyone but yourself- i don't want you.
iii) Really, this is a team, but i want us to all be friends. Perhaps we'll be able to be moderately successful.
iv) Personality and open mindness is greater than elo. A sense of humour is also a plus. Happy to consider anyone 1000+ in season 2. Season 3 being a fresh start of course.
A fellow summoner worded this very well (with the obvious differences: ignore the ping thing; elo; some personal life situations are okay, everyone gets caught up)
(BEFORE YOU APPLY)
You must be:
i. At or above platnium rating (~1700 will be considered with extra information/recommendations)
ii. A team player. You can't lose your head early, mid, or late game. You must be in it to win it.
iii. Dedicated. I don't care what you have going on in your personal life, im sorry. I don't, and the team won't, have time to wait around for you on scrim nights.
iv. Have a solid setup. You have to have a pretty top-grade system. Average ping of ~100 or so. You must also have a working mic WITHOUT BACKGROUND NOISE OR FEEDBACK.
v. A sense of humour. This WILL be a serious team, however, we do want to not only be teammates, but also friends.
vi. The ability to analyse. After every win/lose we will talk about we did right or wrong, which includes watching full replays. Patience is a virtue.
Compet. Experience: Not required- but earns you extra credit
Role(keep it to one if you can):
Best Champions(in said role):
Usual Activity (how often you play and when)
Team Name: TBA (will be chosen by the team)
Play Caller: TBA (chosen by team)
Team Captain: That'd be me- no real advantage here apart from choosing who joins/leaves.
