    Sorry for the late answer I was out of town, and no right now I don't record my games. I am currently working on a laptop so it runs very few programs at once, thought I plan to once I get my new desktop.
    Again sorry for a late reply, and yes the ADL was a lot of fun, and off the top of my head I cannot think of anything that would have made it better, cannot wait for the next one tonight see you there.

    This is a beautiful statement.  The focus of playing the game needs to be improvement rather than winning.  I just recently finished a college course on psychology and one of the topics we covered was achievement orientation, with which we covered the two-factor model.  The two factor model states that there are 2 types of achievement orientation: mastery and performance.  A mastery oriented person is characterized by the belief that success is the result of effort and use of the appropriate strategies. Mastery oriented individuals strive to develop their understanding and competence at a task by exerting a high level of effort.  A performance oriented individual is characterized by the belief that success is the result of superior ability and of surpassing one’s peers.  Performance oriented individuals desire to outperform others and demonstrate (validate) their ability.  Generally speaking, mastery orientation promotes adaptive patterns of learning and ultimately leads to high achievement where performance orientation is predictive of negative affect and poor achievement outcomes.
     
    That being said, what are some effective and measurable strategies on improving?  Whenever I am asked this question my mind immediately turns to 3 points: 
     
    1.) Focus on what your role is during laning phase and work to improve this.  Each role has a specific job that they need to accomplish during laning phase to give your team the advantage going into the mid game.  For solo lanes and the ADC its farming and wave control.  Work on last hitting so that you don't push the wave until you want it to push.  Work on zoning and denying cs and experience.  For a jungler its generally working on their time management.  They need to focus on finding the answer to the "what is the most effective use of my time?" question.  Lastly, for a support its vision control and assisting with wave/zoning control.  If you are able to control the vision and direct where others need to put vision then you can track enemy movements and allow for safe team play.  Work on learning good ward spots so you can get the most out of your ward and know where to sweep to deny effective wards.
     
    2.) Reflect on each game for a few minutes immediately after, what do you think you did well and what do you think you need to improve on.
     
    3.) Record and review footage so you can analyze your own play.
     
    Once you master these then move on to more specialized improvement.
     
    Lastly, everyone gets bad teammates.  If you focus on yourself and not how bad your team was then, in my opinion, the game becomes more enjoyable because you are focusing on a variable that you control.
     
    I hope this helps!

    Sorry for the delay on the response, I am in the middle of a "finals week" with lots of essays.  2 of the main reasons I left vVv was I was unsure how much commitment my schooling was going to take and a lack in activity in the League of Legends division (as a whole) that would make my time and commitment not valuable to me.  Once I realized that I could manage school and still have time to give, the only thing holding me back from reapplying was the state of the League community.  With the restructuring and rebuilding I feel that my time and effort here will be valuable to both myself and the vVv community, which is why I made the decision to reapply.
     
    I hope that answers your question!
     
    Thanks!  For League of Legends in general I would like to make it to plat in solo que.  I am close and good enough to do it, it will just require me to put in a little more effort in honing my mechanics and decision making to bridge the gap.  In the community I am looking to step up as a personal coach to those that would like it.  As I have stated previously a lot of my current joy in League comes from helping others improve through analysis of play, theory crafting, etc, and I am looking for ways to explore this area more.  I am already working with some members of the community and looking to put together a group of people that would like to play ranked 5s for the purpose of improving their team play.

    My its been a fantastic week of league!  Not gonna lie, the start of my season was crap and really had me doubting myself and my abilities.  In placements I went 3-7 and placed Bronze I
     

     
    This was the lowest on the ladder I have been in like a year an a half, since mid way through season 3 essentially.  So work forced me to take a 3-4 day break from league which I think is exactly what I needed.  Since my placement matches I have gone 25-8 and in a short 33 games I climbed from Bronze I to Gold V!
     

     
    Last season it took me a solid 100-200 games to go from Silver V to Gold V, so for me to climb so quickly makes me really excited to see what the rest of the season has to offer.  Things are looking up!

    Yui got a reaction from Crazyviva in Looking for coaches for an established 5's team, 9Line Bravo   
    I was under the impression that this program was for lower elo players trying to step up their game.  The solo laners we have are all plat and our jungler is gold, but I will look into it if that isnt the case!
     
    That being said here is our roster for those interested:
     
    Top - Truechaos500 (Plat Season 4)
    Jungle - Tinysnowman (SC) (Gold Season 4)
    Mid - 9Line Ziggus (Plat Season 4)
    ADC - 9Line Kirito (Plat Season 4)
    Support - 9Line Yui ( C) (Gold Season 4)
     
    Coach: Macro/Bot - 9Line Asuna
     
    C = captain
    SC = Shot Caller
     
    Thanks for checking out the post!

    Yui reacted to vVv OrganicBear in Trying to Start Up Social Media for my League Play   
    I think it's about creating an experience that's enjoyable for the majority of your audience.  The more I look at successful streamers I don't think there's any one "right answer".  You should do what works for you.  For example, QTpie has almost no viewer interaction but gets tons and tons of viewers.  I think a lot of people just like to lurk and watch so his low-interaction style is really ideal for that crowd.  I think a lot of people just watch him to learn the game from one of the best ADCs.  They don't want it explained to them they want to do their own analysis and examine his play to figure it out for themselves. 
     
    Then you've got people like Mr. Bitter (SC2 back in it's glory days).  He got really popular really fast by bringing on pro players onto his stream and doing a lot of webinar-style workshops having them explain certain builds, playstyles, tactics, etc.  It was a much more tutorial/learning-centric style of stream.  I think for a lot of low-mid level players who loved the game this was appealing because they don't have the analytical skills to just watch the pros and decipher why they do what they do.
     
    Then there's personality streamers who base their whole stream around audience interaction.  Trump would be a great example, he's not someone I would call high on personality, but he's very thorough explaining to his audience what he's thinking and tries to interact with his chat (he turned on sub-only mode to be able to keep up when he was having 10k+ viewers).  But he does awesome stuff too like singing karaoke (he's really bad and it's hilarious). 
     
    And you've got your camwhores too.  As much as we'd like to think you'd watch a stream based on the content, the reality is being a good looking guy/girl will get people interested in watching you.  You can definitely play this up and make it your whole stream or you can downplay it but still use it to keep people watching by just doing anything you can to make yourself presentable and attractive on stream.  The downside of course is dealing with all the thirsty viewers you'll no doubt attract, so you'll have to be willing to put up with that.
     
    So really there's no right answer I think anything can work as long as it fits your style and brings value to your audience.  A big part of being successful is networking and building up your team, people who will support you when you're feeling down, people who can offer advice on how to progress when you're stuck, people who can share viewers with you people who can give feedback on how to improve the stream quality/experience, etc.  It's also something you need to spend time on every day in terms of thinking about what you could've done better and whether or not your strategy makes sense and you're providing an experience that people actually want to watch.
