My favorite thing to do in my free time other than write is to play League of Legends, a competetive online PvP M.O.B.A that requires lightning-fast reflexes, on-the-spot problem solving skills, and team coordination. This game is viewed by most people as boring, long, and full of mean and unforgiving people. While some of these might be true sometimes, I have met hundreds of nice people who want to do nothing more than help you get better at the game. The game itself is amazing too, with over 134 unique Champions to play as with their own unique and different playstyle, the game keeps changing in terms of reworking and redoing Champions that don't work, moving around strenghts and weaknesses, and constantly adding new content. I've only played this game for 1-and-a-half years and it's my favorite game of all time.

Another game that I play when I don't want to go into one-hour games of League of Legends is Overwatch. Overwatch is a competetive shooter made by the legendary Blizzard, responsible for World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2, and Hearthstone. This game may be seen by some people as a game of skill, but it's actually a game of strategy and planning, as most of all the Victories I've gotten in this insanely fun FPS were a result of strategy and countering the enemy team. Every hero, now at 23, has a counter and counters another hero. For instance, the character Genji is seen by most people as super powerful as he can dash large distances, deflect attacks, and pull out a massive sword that one-shots enemies. However, the character Winston, a tank that uses an electric beam as a weapon, can kill Genji as he can't deflect the beam, and when he tries to run away with his dash, Winston can jump right back to him. But Winston is easily killed by Reaper, as Reaper deals a ton of damage when he's up close and Winston's player model is super big, which makes him an easier target. Not only that, but Reaper can go invincible to nullify Winston's lazor. But Reaper can get killed by Genji, as Genji is fast and can reflect his close-up damage with ease. Not only that, but if Reaper tries to run with his invincibility, Genji can follow him. There are so many of these counter arcs in this game, and it makes the game super fun to plan out.
