    So now that Titan and I can devote more time to be overbearing with the rank team again. Let's try to get this set of 5 to play ~4 games together to see how they will mesh. Once again, this is not final. This trial run will determine if the players here can work well together. This set has been determined not only by skill and stats, but also by playstyles. 
    Top: Roshiu
    Jung: Brickhill/Showtime
    Mid: Gpawshaft02
    Bot Carry: Showtime/Brickhill
    Support: Senpai Corea (Shotcaller)
    Whenever you guys are free we can try this combo out, and hopefully get closer to final starters in the next week.

    An update on the ranked team. The current starting five (this is far from final) are:
    Top: Rhabit
    Jungle: Senpai Corea (Captain/Shotcaller)
    Mid: Gpawshaft02
    ADC: SONY Showtime
    Support: NamelessPric
    I want to see some games played together by the new year to figure out how everyone fits together. This starting 5 is far from final so there is a high chance of players being swapped out as things are tested. This is still in the trial stage. If you guys are free on Thursday, I am too so we can see if this set works as intended.

    It seems like everyone else here helped you find decent hardware to build your computer. I'll just help with the audio stuff. You want a motherboard with a decent quality built-in sound. Most mid-range to costly motherboards with have that, and you will use it for everyday use. For your producing (not recording) you will want a high quality DAC (Digital to Analog Converter). A good one will greatly increase your sound quality, even beyond what a video card can do because of internal computer noise. Here are some examples of good ones. I don't know what you need, which would determine you need to buy, but this is just to get you started.
    If need to both record to the computer and have crisp audio be driven through your speakers you will need an audio interface, and I can make a list of suggestions for that too.

  6. TheTitan liked a post in a topic by TheDycer in AJSA LoL Club Update   
    Happy Anniversary AJSA! To celebrate the 3 year anniversary the AJSA League of Legends club hosted the second AJSA League of Legends 1v1 tournament. Ayy Memer convincingly took first place winning by first blood in every game. Second place was taken by the defending champion IceSoul (Senpai Corea). He also made Blitzcrank the highest win rate champion who has been played multiple times in the 1v1 series with a 100% win rate. Yes, I am surprised too.
    Third place was taken by AphoticAngel beating out gpawshaft02 and finishing in the money. He also was the only person who came close to taking a game off Ayy Memer in the tournament. The highlight is definitely worth watching https://clips.twitch.tv/thetitan18/BlushingGrasshopperPuppeyFace. The final winner of the night was NamelessPric who scored highest in the prediction game by a lot. Now we all know who to go to for Powerball numbers.
     
    Overall we saw the competitors favoring to kill each other this time instead of trying to CS their way to a victory which made for quite a show. I would like to that all the competitors who showed up and gave it their all, and SONY Showtime who stepped up into the second caster spot when Kronosfighter couldn’t make it.
     
    Moving Forward: The next iteration of this will definitely not be until around spring of next year. There have been ideas thrown around like restricting classes, ranks and changing the format to a 2v2. This is where we need your feedback. What do you want to see?
      On the topic of moving forward, there are a few more things to address. The AJSA ranked team. I am sure more info will be posted by Titan, but 1st string positions will be on the line soon. The current idea is to shuffle teams together in custom matches of those who want to apply and we will observe their games and take notes. We will then vote on who will make the 1st string spots based on quite a few criteria. I would love have a sign up soon so we can start spectating people’s regular matches.
      We still want to make the mentor program happen. Originally, it was trying to be implemented at a time that would be tricky for a lot of players. Expect more info about the mentor system after the holidays, and school is back in full swing.
      There is also a team tournament currently being talked about. We are still talking about it, but when there is more info, it will be shared. Expect it to be run early next year unless it ends up being axed.

  8. TheTitan liked a post in a topic by TheDycer in AJSA LoL Mentor Program   
    This month marks the start of the AJSA League of Legends mentor program. To sign up for the program just respond to this thread if you already posted your player info here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/35841-ajsa-lol-player-information-thread/ . If you haven’t put your information there, and want to sign up, I need your rank, role(s), what you can teach, and what you want to learn.
    Once you sign up here, I will look at your past 10 games to determine your baseline numbers for CS/min, KDA, GPM, team objective share, vision control, and win rate. I will glance over your past 20 games for a larger sample of your current role(s) and champion pool. I will then assign you a mentor and/or “student”. If you are a high skill level player already, there is a chance you will end up with two students and no mentor. Lower skill level players may not get a student, but will also not have more than one mentor.
     
    Just for extra incentive to improve, or help someone else improve, the student who improves the most by September 18, 2016, and their mentor, will receive a 1380 RP code. “Most improved” will be determined from increases in rank, win rate, CS/min, KDA, GPM, vision control and objective share along with successful introductions of new champions and roles.
     
    Most of the final values will be the average of your last 5 games' stats. Win rate, champion pool and role introduction will taken from the last 10 games. Your improvement will be determined from the delta of your baseline and final values. To decrease the chance of stat manipulation, the time I take final stats will be kept hidden from participants. My suggestion is just play as much as possible to increase your stats. 
     
    There were will be special weights on certain stats for different roles. Jungler will have a 1.5x for jungle monsters in ally jungle and 2.0x for monsters in the enemy jungle. Jungler lane CS will have a 0.5x weight. Supports will receive 2.0x value for warding/dewarding, will have 1.5x value for assists, and will receive 2.0x the value for dragons taken before 20min. These weights should offset the wealth of stats the other three roles would get in a game and give supports and junglers a better shot at winning.
    Good luck out there, and I hope to see the whole group sign up for this.

  10. TheTitan liked a post in a topic by TheDycer in July 1v1 Feedback   
    The AJSA July League of Legends 1v1 tournament wrapped up Sunday night with Icesoul beating Lazyboon 2-1 to take the title. Now that everyone is settled down, I would like to hear your thoughts on this tournament and some ideas that may be implemented in the next one.
    First, how did you like the current format? Was it exciting to play and/or watch? Was the tournament too long for just one block of time? Where the global bans fair, and do you think there were too many or too little? What problems would you like to see addressed moving forward?
    Now moving onto future stuff:
    Howling Abyss: There was some chatter about playing the 1v1s on this map and just playing for a nexus takedown. I do think that would make for an interesting tournament, but would play much slower and limit picks to strong pushing/tower taking champions. If this was to happen the Semifinals would be the start of the main stream and rounds before that would be played in the week prior with strict deadlines for the matches. Remember, a key part of howling abyss is no basing so that also needs to be taken into consideration.
    Future Seeding: I talked about this a little during the tournament stream. My personal plan is to give the top 4 contestants "Legend" status. The place they finished will be their seeding in the next tournament. This will give them a higher chance to score a bye in the opening round, and possibly have a better draw of early opponents depending on the number of participants we have in the next tournament. I feel success and hard work should be rewarded and not reset going into the next event. Also, players who made it to the quarterfinals in the tournament will have an extra "ticket" to get drawn into the next tier of seeds. Everyone who entered this tournament will get one ticket on their entry into the next one, and anyone new entering in will only be put in the drawing for the lower seeds. This is an example 24 participant bracket: http://challonge.com/hy32v94v. In that bracket you see how seeds would be laid out; the untitled slots could have anyone fill them.
    Future participant numbers: If you didn't get the hint from above, I am thinking of raising the cap on the participant numbers to 32. If that were to happen, no matter the map played, the opening round would be played off stream during the week prior to the main event. All of those games would need to have a member of the AJSA club view them and at least one screenshot of the win condition sent in a PM on the forum. With more aggressive advertisement especially on the LoL forums we could hit that cap easily, but it would also be a Platinum and under tournament if we decide to go this route for obvious reasons.
    Future prizes: If the tournament were to expand, the prize values at the higher end could increase, and will if I continue sponsoring the event. If the AJSA takes over sponsoring, I have no clue what the prize structure would be, and really could only give advice on what it should be. That I think will be decided in the coming weeks. The major thing we would have to worry about with the prizes is sustainability. 
    I think wraps up everything. Comment with your constructive thoughts and any criticisms. I know this is not perfect yet so any feedback is welcome.

    Just an update; we currently have 9 of the 16 spots filled.

    I will check in the morning. 
    Yes, the streamed matches will be in spectator mode. Casting will be done by Titan and possibly a co-host yet to be named.
    RP codes will be messaged to through this forum, an email, twitter, or any form of communication that will show proof once the transaction is complete. The easiest way to do the cash transfer is through paypal. If you need a money order/check sent to you, I will give Titan the money and make him do it. I would heavily suggest using Paypal. It is cheaper, easier and faster for both parties.

    Some extra information that can be helpful:
    So the easiest way to sign up is drop your League of Legends in game in this thread. This also allows us to easily add you to the club. 
    If you are a low level player in LoL, and are afraid of playing in the tournament, you can still take part and help out. We will need a few observers that can hop into a match up and watch if any of the issues happen in the post above. If there are no issues, you just show and have fun watching people try to kill each other on stream.
    Practicing: Queuing mid in dynamic and playing the game is not always the best practice. The playstyle it takes to win a 1v1 can easily lose you many games in the mid lane. I would recommend practicing every now and then with other people in the club. I also wouldn't mind hoping onto the rift for a few 1v1s. I won't be playing in the tournament, but I have a lot of experience in 1v1s, and can pass on my knowledge to willing participants.

    I would like to take a moment and welcome you to the AJSA NA League of Legends 1v1 Tournament. The inaugural tournament will be hosted on July 10, 2016 at 6pm Est. There will be 16 spots available in this tournament. Prizes will be handed out for first through fourth place finishes:
    1st place wins $75 2nd place wins $50 3rd place wins a 3500 RP code 4th place wins a 1380 RP code  
    To sign up for the tournament you have to be apart of the AJSA League of Legends Club and respond in the forum announcement with your in-game name. Seeding will be randomized Check in will be at 5:30 pm Est in the club chat. If you are not present by 5:45 pm Est your spot will be forfeited to the reserve list. The opening rounds of the tournament will be single match ups. The semifinals and finals will be best of three.
    Match Rules: The 1v1 matches will be played on Summoner’s Rift (in the mid lane) and the win conditions are first blood, first tower or first to 100 CS. Selections, Early Rounds: The selection process will include a “chat ban” phase before a blind pick during the opening rounds of the tournament. During this process each contestant can ban up to 3 champions. This ensures nobody has an unfair advantage in the single match ups. Selections, Finals: The semifinals and finals will have a draft phase. There will be a coin toss to determine the order in which sides will be picked in the best of three. Winning: Once any win condition is reached, both participants take a screenshot of the scoreboard to submit for review if your game is not being streamed. If the score board is suspicious, the match up will be replayed with an observer. Suspicious scoreboards include reaching 100 CS before 9.5 minutes into the match which is the realistic threshold for 100 CS without missing a minion. Global Bans: The following list of champions are unfair to play against and currently have absurd win rates (54%+) while maintaining an unhealthy ban rate (30%+). This list is subject to change; Malzahar, Swain. Streaming: Games will be broadcast on https://www.twitch.tv/thetitan18 and/or https://www.twitch.tv/ajsagaming. Every semifinals and finals match up will be broadcast. Broadcast match ups in the opening rounds will be chosen at random and participants will be informed if they are selected. Non-broadcast Matches: All Non-broadcast matches in the first round have to be underway by 6:20 pm Est. All Non-broadcast matches in the second round have to be underway by 7:20 pm Est. This allows for remake time if necessary. Disconnects, Hardware Failure, and Bugs: In the event of any of these situations, the game will be remade if neither side has hit 60 CS. If one side has hit 60 CS, the CS delta has to be under 15 for a remake if the player affected is behind. If a remake is the outcome, the game will have an observer, and has to launch within 5 minutes of the decision. If this happens two times to one player in a match, that player will forfeit that match.

    I am TheDycer, and now a new member of the AJSA thanks to TheTitan's relentless recruiting. Some of you have already met me hanging out in various streams and games, but many others have not. I hope to grow to be a rather large part of the community as I often do when I participate in gaming communities.
     
    I currently am playing Smite and a little bit of HotS since Infinite Crisis is completely dead since they announced the game's closure. I do giveaways and host events in the games I play in so follow me @TheDycer on Twitter for constant updates because I will sometimes forget to post about it everywhere for a day or two after the original announcement. I currently am giving Smite God Packs away through Twitter so check it out if you want a chance at winning one!
