ClanOC LoL Team was created by Lersar
I wanted to just get an idea, I know we have a lot of people that play League but I also know a lot already play for or with another group. Just testing the water, who would be interested in forming a competitive League team, the idea would be to start off playing normals for a while to get used to team and move into ranked 5s at some point, going strong into S4.

The only requirement I can think of would be availability, at least one night a week for team practice.

Nothing set in stone, just curious if there is any interest. Thanks.

ya, I am in. I hate solo queues at the moment. I really think I
need a team that where I know how they play and they know how I play.

EDIT: I re-read the post. I think I am going to be out of this
unless the night was Friday or Saturday when I am off work. But still interested.

I would be In, I have an odd schedule though 12 hour shifts that rotate every 8 weeks so if we play after 9:30 I am so in. I have been wanting to get better and I enjoy hanging out with you guys.

Ok so I need a bottle of nitro, a stick of Dynamite, a roll of duct tape and ... Oh yeah! a squirrel

Yeah, I know that channel causes a lot of confusion. Highwayshark is a small group of us from high school, instead of hosting our own server, Wes was nice enough to create basically a server in a server for us. It also works well because sometimes there is some overlap, obviously myself, and sometimes Wes and others from OC join in. It's pretty much strictly voice communication for whatever game we're in. We've had a few times in the past where people would jump in because that's the only channel with people in it and start talking about unrelated stuff, which is understandable. To avoid confusion we locked it down. It's nothing personal.

More to the topic, I haven't coordinated any sort of scrims related to this thread yet. At the moment I'm just gauging interest for now, probably looking for after the LAN to organize some practice nights to test things out. Maybe even at the LAN at some point.

Looks like you got some interest, I can not wait to play some with you guys. Question is if we do a set team what spots does every one want to play?

Updated OP with interest list. Since this seems to be moving forward, I feel I should clarify my goal, so to speak. We all may have played solo/duo queue in the past, but I would imagine it's not often that we have the opportunity to play as a team of five in that scenario. Furthermore, a large amount of luck has to be involved to be able to throw five random people together and succeed against a team that is more than likely an organized five. To an extent, that's part of the frustration of solo/duo queue. I'm not trying to make it to LCS, or be a top-rated ranked five team. I would just like a group of people I know are serious about the game to play ranked with, and to the earlier point, a consistent group that play together and can function as a team.

That being said, what I'm looking for specifically is the ability to communicate effectively. Being able to give and receive criticism in a manner that doesn't piss people off is golden. It's not hard, or impossible. Some people struggle with giving feedback, some people struggle with listening and applying feedback. We need to be able to communicate and look at our gameplay in a non-personal fashion.

That's about it. If you know that you often get upset at losing, this probably isn't for you. It's going to happen, and we'll learn more from our losses than our wins, if we can look at them and learn from them.

If you guys are still in, awesome. I'd be interested in seeing who may be available this week for a quick Normal scrim or two. I'm totally fine with having more than five, as a matter of fact I'd prefer it since things will inevitably come up and someone will not be there. Once we get going and a consistent schedule, we can rotate people in and out if we have more than 5 available on a night. I would happily sit out a game to be able to spectate and analyze without focusing on my own role.

And like Ropple said above, post up your positions. I'll pretty much fill.

Honestly I am free every night, weekends after 9:30 due to kids. I know Plague and I are really interested. He and I have been practicing with Support and ADC but I want to get better at this game so I will go any where you want. I know we will lose I know how to take criticism, you can't get better with out it. So I am 100% in.

That actually lines up perfect with me. My little one's bedtime is around then, so after I'm good to play.

Going to bump this, I know it looks like there is a single 5 man in Highwayshark active. I am still interested
in setting up a second group.
I am bored most Friday and Saturdays if anyone is around.

Arxon and anyone else, Ropple and I will be in teamspeak around 9pm on Saturday this weekend to play some. And I will be on, on Friday night as well.

We (Ropple and myself) are trying to find times to start playing more normal draft mode games so we can work on our synergy as ADC and support, before trying ranked when season 4 starts.
