I didn’t make a post last night because I was trying to get this video to work in a post. The video wasn’t uploaded from the separate stream it was on until this morning.
One of the video games I play is League of Legends. League of Legends is kind of capture the flag and warfare combined. Two teams of five fight to get into the base of their opponent and destroy the opponent’s base.
League of Legends has a professional player base called the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS). The LCS plays every week and broadcasts the games through various internet channels such as Twitch, Azubu, and Youtube. I watch the LCS channel on Youtube.
Recently, the LCS has started broadcasting tweets with #LCS in them during the games. I noticed that they were doing this and decided to make a tweet of my own to see if it would get broadcast.
Not only did the tweet get broadcast, but it was one of the few tweets that the announcers called out during the game.
I got excited, told all my friends, and watched the portion of the video where my tweet was featured over again a few times.
I kept making more tweets as the game progressed to see if I could get featured again. It wasn’t until after the game that I realized why none of them had a chance of getting featured. I’d paused the video while celebrating, so I was now three or so minutes behind what was happening. All the tweets I’d made after the first were too late to be noticed.
Seriously made my day to have something I wrote be broadcast to thousands of people though! I’ll try for a repeat today.
