WHILE TRADITIONAL SPORTS ARE TAKING A BREAK, ESPORTS IS TAKING A LEAP FORWARD

In those challenging times for the whole world, we as an organization would like to spread our message for positivity to the iGaming industry and beyond.
Although most of the sports events worldwide, including the biggest of the year – Euro 2020, were canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we still have other opportunities to offer to our clients and partners, such as betting on eSports.
With the shutdown of all major sports leagues internationally, sportsbooks need markets to keep players interested and betting. Esports, as an already well-established gambling vertical, comes as the working alternative to all sports bettors around the globe. Most of the LAN tournaments were shortly reorganized to be held online, such as LCS, LEC, LCK, Overwatch League, ESL Pro League, Flashpoint and many more.
UltraPlay eSports offering:
Numbers at the moment:
UltraPlay covers 251 events, 90% of them with live odds.
We experienced a 30% increased turnover only in the first 5 days after the traditional sports shutdown. This is growing on a day-to-day basis as more people get involved. We expect this to get in 100’s% once all eSports leagues restart playing online. Low tier matches are the ones to see turnover go through the roof because of lack of any other events.
Moreover, we record an increased interest in our eSports product ODDS.GG from the leading sportsbooks. They are willing and ready to integrate it as soon as possible.
From March 20-26, UltraPlay will cover, both pre-match and live, the online charity marathon dedicated to fighting COVID-19, organized by WePlay Esports. Top teams and top talent from the Dota 2 scene are included, namely OG, Team Liquid, Virtus.Pro and more.
Tournaments that still haven’t announced the shift towards online, are expected to follow the example if the situation with COVID-19 health crisis continues in the following months.
Many operators in the regulated markets throughout the US, for example, have already requested eSports to be allowed on their websites so that they keep the business running. And it should be the right step forward knowing the fact that eSports is just like any other sport.
With traditional sports matches postponed and teams self-isolated, football stars are joining the competitive games scene by playing FIFA and Fortnite, attracting an enormous audience towards eSports in general.
Since we first started offering eSports 6 years ago, we have always believed in its potential. Now, more than ever before, we see that eSports can be a profitable alternative to sports markets on the sites.
Let’s face it; 60m people watched the final of the highest-profile eSports tournament. Only the Champions League final, or World Cup final, can compare with that. And sportsbooks can attract the eSports audience to their websites with reliable and extensive odds coverage.
If your bettors also request eSports in general or games that you don’t have yet, contact us today at https://ultraplay.co/ , odds.gg or [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])

30 [M4F] What is love? Baby don't hurt me, no more~

Bonus points if Jim Carrey popped into your mind as soon as you read the title :) As stated above, I'm a 30 year old fella, living in Turkey right now (though I have a lot of free time and a pretty bizarre sleeping schedule so pretty much any timezone would be fine), I'm an IT graduate, also did a masters in UK before returning to my country, and now on the lookout for a sweet job. 1.90m (I believe that's about 6'3 if you prefer to measure things with your feet :p) and somewhat on the chubby side, but hopefully not for long (new years resolution gym memberships are over the roof :p) . Overall I'd say I'm a rather chill and carefree person, can't say I'm very ambitious or competitive, I'm more the supportive and nurturing type.
As you would probably expect on Reddit, I'm kinda nerdy and I'm a huge gamer (PS4 and PC, with about 600+ games in library, yet you can still occasionally find me complaining that I can't find anything to play :p) , I love games with a passion :) To me they're nothing short of another form of art, and much more than a simple pastime. You don't necessarily need to be a gamer yourself, but I'd hope at least you're open minded and accepting towards it, but it's a huge bonus if you're also a gamer :)
I play a bit of everything but I don't really enjoy competitive games too much (there is that love-hate relationship with Dota, but that's the exception :) ), but co-op games are right down my alley :) I mostly like RPGs and story driven games, huge FF fan, some other favourites would be God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us, RDR, Subnautica, GTAV, Skyrim, Hearthstone, Slay the Spire, Divinity, No Man's Sky, Disco Elysium, XCOM... okay, you know what, I don't think this list will stop anytime soon so I'll cut it short here, but you get the picture :p
I also love football, snooker, reading some fantasy novels or interesting historical facts occasionally, also cinema and music. Music has a big place in my life, and I have a wide variety in my musical taste, and would love to exchange some songs :) My "liked songs" probably looks like a rollercoaster ride, it can go from opera to metal, then classical music into a western movie theme, anything goes :p
Also, I love animals! I don't have a pet right now but I've had various pets throughout my life such as chicks, fishes, birds, rabbits, a tiny turtle briefly, and a cat. And I want a Shiba Inu in the future, I love their chubby cheeks and silly smiles so much :) They doin' me a fascinate.
I'm not a very outgoing person, on most days you can safely place a bet on me being at home. This is partly because I don't have any friends in the vicinity, I moved to a city where I literally don't know anyone other than family, and it's not easy for me to meet people with shared interests, so I try my luck online instead.
What else.. oh, I'm an atheist. I try to be respectful towards everyone's religious views as long as they don't try to shove them down my throat and convert me or condemn me etc, but I'd probably get along better with someone who's also not so religious, I suppose.
Ok, here come the important bits:
I've had a pretty lonely life and the few relationships I did have in the past always left me disappointed and frankly appalled at how people can be so rude to someone they care/cared about. But I can also say that those experiences made me realize more about who I am and what I want, and taught me to recognize and appreciate the honesty, openness, loyalty, kindness and compassion in people and I value that, and I think those would be the best things I have to offer (especially honesty is very important to me, I need to stress that). I think I'm a very gentle and caring soul who just yearns to find that special person to cherish my time with and share everything. I'm a hopeless romantic that thinks love is a very special thing and pretty much gives everything else their meaning. I want someone to share my day with, laugh together and cry together, someone to laugh at my silly puns and dad jokes ( so hopefully my goofiness could be something you enjoy, not something you 'tolerate') as well as have deep philosophical conversations with me every now and then. Someone who is open to share who they are, and someone I can be comfortable around and can just be myself with and trust completely.
Of course, I also know it takes time and effort to reach that level, and I think respect and communication should be the foundation of a good relationship. I always prefer to talk things out and be proactive and mature, rather than burying any issues, so I really appreciate straightforward people. I absolutely hate unnecessary drama and vanity. I'm willing to make the effort to really get to know someone and form a deep connection, so I'd hope for you to also be willing to make an effort and spend some time to get to know me, fair enough right?
Naturally, nobody is perfect and I have my flaws. I think one is probably my shaken self-esteem in certain aspects, and perhaps a slight fear of abandonment that lingers on from previous bad experiences. Being a romantic and sensitive guy with stupid ideals makes me a bit too naive and vulnerable I guess, because I often don't know how to deal with the rudeness displayed by people, and I'm afraid to think if I "toughen up" and become insensitized that would also mean losing touch with who I really am deep beneath, which is not what I want. So I really, genuinely want to be in the company of kind hearted souls, respectful and emphatic. If that sounds like you, then I'd be happy if we get to know each other better. But if you're the kind of person to "ghost" people, please spare us both the trouble and stay away, I find it extremely rude and disrespectful and nothing hurts more me more than that, I hate that this kind of rudeness is so common and accepted as a "norm" in today's society. I wish everyone could just be nicer and more respectful to each other.
As one of my favourite movie quotes goes: "The world's a playground. You know that when you are a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it." So I seek someone who managed to keep that kid alive within :)
I'd be up for a long distance thing as we get to know each other and grow closer over time, and see where it goes, not exactly in a rush. I think it can be a good starting point because it allows us to focus on each other's thoughts and feelings and personality, rather than sex, and if you can love someone for those qualities then it can be a solid and lasting relationship. And if we don't seem to click on that level, we can always be good friends too.
In short, if you're a kind, talkative, honest and witty person I'd like to know you!

Why we rarely watch T2/3/4 teams?

Personally I feel there are two issues;
In my personal opinion Valve should encourage regional league where teams that are registered in that region can play each other, then if successful, the team/s can move one play stronger interregional teams. Otherwise, I can't see the t3+ scenes to ever fluorish.

The new patch and the Pro Scene

We're all assessing this in our perspectives as pub players. Two sides have opinions on it so far:
AND
And honestly, the pros are really the ones affected by this by A LOT. These teams have played the game without too much drastic change and have gone VERY GOOD at it. They should, because they’re betting their living off it. They should adapt I agree, but changes of this scale is like forcing futsal players to play football all of a sudden. Changing the roles WILL fuck up some lifelong support players. Putting more RNG would fuck up all that they’ve devised and worked for in the game. We could be looking at a new batch of pro players more adept at this RNG game than the ones currently active. And now they’re hedging their chances on the next major on this. I hope Icefrog really dials back on some of these changes, especially the RNG ones. I understand Keeping the game fresh, but then again, sports like football, tennis, basketball etc havent changed at all and still lives until this day. And dota has essentially kept with a lot of its original concept for more than a decade and lived. This is definitely unfair to the current crop of pro players.

Faireum Review

Day in day out, individuals place bets on themselves on a certain outcone or the other, they put down wagers regardless of sexual orientation, race, origin and numerous factors. People can put down wagers from the solace of their homes or sports seeing focuses. Wagering could likewise include an individual staking on a diversion or sports and surmise or anticipate the triumphant group or amusement player.
Toward the finish of the ongoing interaction, the victor of the diversion expectation takes all stakes (assets or anything used to stake). Now and then things don't run well with either party in regards to absence of straightforwardness and trust in a few recreations like poker and some other table games because of cheats or different components from a gamer which may cause tumult or question between both amusement players.

Today SA teams have slots on every DPC tournament. A few yeras ago they had to play for food

EDIT: Yep, I misspelled "years" in the title, hope mods will take care about that — can't fix it myself
About a month ago I've written an article for Cybersport.ru about South American Dota 2 scene and it's stuggles on the way to the big stage. Some well known players and other personalities from Peru and Brazil were so kind to talk to me about their not so great past and present.
As you might know our English editorial — Cybersport.com — has been closed so we don't really have an alternetive platform to publish a translated version of the article. Therefore I'm posting here only some qoutes from the stories our speaker told me:
SmAsH — preuvian pro-player. In the past was a part of Not Today and Elite Wolves, got banned by Valve for matchfixing in 2016.
«After Not Today and before Elite Wolves we there on the street. We had nothing. We borrowed a basement in an office so we could live there. We also got 5 PC we’d borrowed from a friend. I don’t really remember how did we got those. And we had no money at all. I had a bit of money — about $300. So we didn’t have money for food or to pay to the provider. We could barely practice at all. We were in a really bad situation. <…>
After the match a bet on and didn’t received any money from that Valve e-mailed us. The scene was like this: five players in the room playing, suddenly someone gets an e-mail from Valve telling «You are banned. You can’t participate in any tournament». And one by one we got shot. So the mood in the room was pretty shitty».
Stinger — preuvian pro-player. In the past was a part of Not Today, Elite Wolves and Infamous. Currently playing for Playmakers Esports.
«For Sweet Revenge wasn’t paying money but they gave us PCs, internet and beds. We didn’t have enough money for the food. In Not Today they gave us food and things like soap, shampoo. Though the gaming house was quite comfortable for me we had some troubles with the manager. When we left the team Not Today manager took the prize money for many tournaments — as a price for their services. And that’s apart from the 30% he took by the ''contract''.
Until 2017 the only way we were getting money was winning. And all the money we spent on food. Hard times, couldn’t even buy clothes or a phone. I remember the first salary came when Infamous signed a contract with Lenovo in the beginning of 2017. Comparing to the other regions I think it was a really humble salary. After TI7 Infamous started to pay $300».
Erlich — manager of paiN Gaming.
«In the beginning of the esports as a whole players would actually not get paid very well at all. It’s like SmAsH said: teams would actually be teams of friends — people you kind of met online. It wasn’t actually a team with all the best players. So it was very unprofessional at the start. And it remained unprofessional for a long time.
Buying computer in Brazil is very expensive. It’s actually an investment. If you were to get a top line computer in US you’d pay about $2 000. For you to get a computer like that in Brazil you have to pay $5 000 easily. It’s more than double the price. If a company is going to invest in a team and give that king of equipment — it’s nothing. You gonna give out 10 PCs. So it’s $50 000 — for a big company it’s not that big money. But how are they gonna get their money back? If we say that the medium salary in Brazil is about $900, which kind of family will buy their child or even themselves a $5 000 computer?
So we can just blame companies for not wanting to invest. There is a political problem in Brazil — taxes are so big for electronics and such. We normally see articles that say it’s cheaper to buy a flight to USA and buy your equipment there than actually buy it in Brazil».
Swadow — commentator for the spanish BTS translations.
«We don’t have any minors or majors or any tournaments at all. In 5 or 6 years of Dota the only tournament that we had was The Final Match. It was in Peru and we were casting it and it was huge! It’s kind of sad that Peru or South America are not getting any chance for having tournaments. We want to see if we can get attention of tournament organizations that want to work in South America and we also want to see if any teams want to invest here».
Timado — peruvian pro-player. Currently playing for Infamous.
«There’s football and there’s FIFA and official matches and stuff. In Dota for example in Peru it’s like street football. There’s no rules. Everybody is just doing what they want. <…> No one thinks. There was abuse from the players and organizations — teams and tournaments.
Even now the salary is pretty much a joke. It’s less than a minimum salary. So if you work at McDonald’s or something you earn much more money than a pro-player. What happens is those organizations get small sponsorships from Razer and that sort of brand. So they get a small bootcamp — small apartment where people can live. And they put there computers, mouses, keyboards and so on. Then they get a team there. So the exchange is: «I give you a bootcamp and you play for me That’s it. I’m not gonna pay you».
Liposa — brazilian pro-player. In the past was a part of Midas Club and SG e-sports. Currently playing for test123 (ex-paiN X).
«Since our region is really far away from all the other regions the options we have for screaming are screaming SA teams or screaming NA teams on 150 ping. The way you get better in SA is really harder. I’m not saying it’s too hard and we can’t get better. It’s not that. We can get better but it's a lot harder. Because we either scream with NA teams with ping or we scream with SA teams which are worse than NA teams».
Bardo — brazilian pro-player. In the past was a part of Midas Club and SG e-sports.
«I think the main problem of Brazil is that we can not play here. We can not play with each other. When I as in SG e-sporst we didn’t scream with paiN or any other SA teams. Because there is little teams. For example, we play against Infamous in screams and then we have to play against them in tournaments. It’s bad for us. Because they know how we want to play. And there is no teams to play. I think it’s a geographical problem».
Astini — the owner of Midas Club.
«First of all Valve should be guaranteeing that the slots will go the region. The second thing is to give a prize share — even very small — to the teams on closed qualifiers. And the last one: they should get some local community management. I’m speaking about localization to other languages, ads of the local tournaments in Dota client and all those things».

You can read the full article in Russian here. If you are willing to tanslate it and post it on reddit — go ahead. Just put a link to the source in it. I still have all the records of full interviews with the players and I'm sure all of them would like to see their stories abour the region as high as they could get.

How To Actually Develop Those "Mechanics" You Hear So Much About

TL/DR Here's a list of mechanical errors and ways to fix them with practice.
All right, enough's enough. Time to talk about mechanics.
A lot of people seem to think that this is the part of the game that you can't train, like size or running speed in other sports. You either have it or you don't. Well, those other sports are right, you can't make someone taller. But here...they're wrong, and I'll show you why.
Go get a piece of paper and write your name three times as you normally would, but quickly. Do it as fast as possible.
They may not be pretty, but they're probably legible. Now, switch hands and do it again, using the hand you usually don't write with.
Looks like a train wreck, doesn't it?
But hey, it's supposed to. You're either right- or left- handed, maybe even ambidextrous. But, there's the hand you write with. You've been using it your whole life. The other, non-writing hand, gets used almost never. The ratio of writing experience between your writing hand and non-writing hand may be hundreds of thousands to one.
If you'd like to see about developing off-hand writing skills, you can go here, but let me save you the time: you practice. You just keep doing all of your writing with your off hand until it starts looking legible.
Fortunately, League of Legends requires typing (that you're already kind of used to) and right-click mousework, where your hands are probably less used to. I bet you do most of your normal left-clicking with your index finger, while your middle finger gets used less. Furthermore, unless you like to share your feelings with other drivers in traffic, your middle finger just isn't used that often in life.
But hey, that's good news. This means you can train it better.
So, I'm going to try and provide you with some knowledge about mechanics and practice. I'm going to start by outlining mistakes and explaining what they are, and then include a solution for each mistake. Fortunately, many mistakes can be fixed by one solution. I'll try to outline them all.
CS ERRORS (Slivering, Late-hitting, Splitters)
We'll start with what everyone thinks about with “mechanics”, simple CS errors. For the most part, you can click a dying minion and not get the gold in one of three ways. You can sliver the minion, meaning it has a sliver of health left after the auto and another creep takes it. You can do the opposite and late-hit the minion, where your champion's auto attack animation starts. Finally, you can lose a minion to a splitter. What this means is that two minions are dying at the same time, and you can only auto one of them, while the other dies while your auto attack is on cooldown. You'd have to use an ability to take the second.
Solution: Watch the caster and tank minion projectiles.
If you're going to lose a minion in lane, something on your team stole it from you, and most likely, it will be the higher-damage caster minion. That's what you're competing with. Fortunately, the projectiles are visible and relatively slow. You can see them coming. On top of that, you've been shooting minions recently and can see how much damage your shots do, even exactly if you have the combat text on.
So, when in doubt, you look at the caster projectiles. If the remaining HP is high and you might sliver it, wait for one or two more projectiles to land, then shoot it. If you're risking a late hit, get your bullet or punch there before the casters do.
Finally, regarding splitters: the minions don't really change targets away from a minion that often unless someone distracts them. What this means is that a splitter actually has some development time, and if you are watching which one your casters are focusing (or two in the case of a splitter), you can auto attack one of them early. This ruins their HP balance, makes one die after the other, and makes both of them easy to collect.
CLICK TIMING FAULTS (Auto Cancel Faults, Missed Auto Resets), ABILITY RECOGNITION
I've seen a lot of lower ranked games where the players are playing excited, with high pressure. Their actions-per-minute (“APM”s) are higher than they're comfortable with, and they make erratic movements. One is the auto cancel fault, where they intend to auto attack something but move before the animation completes, canceling it. Jinx is notorious for this, as her quick “tzzzt” minigun attack is easy, but her “fuh-woomp” rocket launch takes longer to fire. If you're used to quick shooting with the minigun, you can very easily cancel a rocket shot. This is pretty costly, as her long rocket range means that this auto attack was probably free damage on the enemy, but you lost it because you clicked too fast.
Another issue is if you're playing a champion with an auto attack reset, such as Wukong, Nasus, or Vi. Each of them have abilities that empower their next autoattack while taking it off of cooldown immediately. Naturally, you want to use these abilities immediately after a previous auto attack, so the reset saves you as much time as possible. But, use it first, and you will save no time. Use it too early, and you may even cancel the previous autoattack, which is damage you deserved but didn't get on the enemy.
This last one may be unrelated, but the solution is the same: recognizing when your opponent uses an ability. Playing the cooldowns is paramount if you want to succeed against a competent laner, and making sure you don't miss it is important. Also, most of those bastards are you know...trying to kill you, and will use their abilities when you would be otherwise distracted (taking a CS for example). If your eyes are focused on your CS work, you could very well miss it.
Solution: Turn the volume up
We've already established where your eyes are, either on the caster minions or the minimap. Your eyes are doing a lot of work, and the more pressure you put on them, the more likely they are to miss key information. Instead, use one of your other senses: hearing.
You should be familiar with practicing with your champion in custom games, but head back in there, make sure the sound is audible, and give it a go. Try to push your champion to the limits by canceling autoattacks while listening, and pinpoint exactly the moment when you can cancel and get credit (have scrolling combat text on, so you can be sure) and when you'll get a full cancel. After that...try it with your eyes closed. Attempt to shoot or punch the jungle wight 10 times blind, then open your eyes and see how much damage you actually did. If you did 10x you attack damage, great! You're all set.
To do this, you might want to use the shift key. Since you won't be actually able to see your click, fire at the wight once, move your cursor to open space (away from the wight). Without moving the cursor, shift-right click to shoot, regular right click immediately afterward. Keep shift-clicking again, to return to your AA cycle. Just try to use a move command in each, which has a chance of canceling your auto, but won't if you time it right. Also, you may want to find a LoL inclined friend to help you with this by watching over your shoulder.
As for ability use, this is actually the easiest one. I defy anyone who isn't hard of hearing to miss Sivir ulting with the sound on. But, as you play more, you'll develop the skill to detect ability use and respond accordingly. You will be VERY proud of yourself when you flash that ganking Lee Sin's Q when your attention was completely elsewhere a moment before, just because that “heeeeUH!” was heard and your brain knew what to do.
SKILLSHOT LANDING
I play a lot of Ziggs, and I am always quite embarrassed when I airball a Q. What's worse is when it bounces short, OVER the head of the target, and keeps bouncing behind harmlessly. I feel so bad when that happens; it's like I had a wide open receiver in football, and I straight out flubbed the pass.
Solution: Aim for the feet.
The search bar is a wonderful thing, ain’t it?
This game will score skillshots as hits if they intersect with the target's “hitbox”, which is the space they occupy on the game map. This hitbox is not the champion's body, in fact, it's where the champion is standing. Isometric points of view do this. So, with big skillshots like Syndra or Corki, aim at their feet, and you won't miss.
WALK FAULTS, DEAD FOOT FAULTS, SKILLSHOT DODGING, CURSOR LOSS
Here's four mistakes that don't seem all that related, but are fixable with the same solution.
A walk fault is the one misclick that can kill you. It's one of the scariest things that can happen to an ADC: you click on a target to shoot it, but you missed the champion and instead clicked on the ground. Instead of shooting from distance (what you wanted), your champion is now doing no damage and walking TOWARDS danger. Instead of shooting, you're walking forward...boy is this bad. This is how you turn being on offense with momentum into a complete failure.
The opposite is much less punishing. It won't singlehandedly ruin games for you, but you'll miss a lot of opportunites. It's when you've moved in, kiting forward, autoattacking as you go. You click the target to shoot, but instead of clicking the ground, you click the target again. As your champion is already in range, he or she will stand still and sit idly as the AA timer resets. This is a dead foot fault, when you want to be walking forward during the AA cooldown, but you aren't because you misclicked the champion instead of the ground.
On the other hand, skillshot dodging is paramount. You're on defense in this situation and you need to make sure that your opponent's shot will miss. There are very many skillshots that if landed once, will win lanes (Blitz hooks or Nami bubbles) or even entire games (Sejuani ults, Amumu Qs). Naturally, you need the presence of mind to drop what you're doing and get the hell out of the way. Even if you do see it coming, your cursor may be in the worst possible place, meaning you'll need to get a handle on it and put it where you need it to be before you can begin to move where you want, and this is time you may not have.
Speaking of cursors, here's another great way to make a fool of yourself on a grand stage. You're frantically clicking and acting, and then the teamfight starts. All sorts of lights and explosion happen, you see something that you have to respond to, and you go to click and...ummm...where's the cursor?
A lot of people have complained how bad the “yellow glove” cursor is in LoL, and how it's not readily changeable. If it were me, I'd like a bright, hot pink X, or some other obnoxiously loud symbol that I can't possibly lose track of if I tried. Maybe they'll let us do that in the client some day. Unfortunately, that's not really an option in the short term.
Solution: Short-length clicks with higher APM.
I have a friend that plays Dota and complains about us LoL players all the time, but there's one point he'll concede: controlling your champion in our game is so much easier than his. In his game, clicks are commitments, in ours, you can cancel almost anything.
So, you should be developing a movement style that naturally produces more clicks than needed. The more, the better. After all, you already spit out plenty of junk move commands in lane anyway, what's a few more? Here's the chance for that untrained middle finger to shine...get it to press the button more often.
The reason why is that clicks are NOT commitments, you can always take an auto or click to move back if it was made in error. By having a naturally faster clicking rhythm, your brain will not only get used to seeing your champion do the wrong thing (like a walk fault), and will already be operating at the proper speed to spit out another, proper click to correct it. In other words, it's not about preventing walk faults from ever happening, it's about being able to immediately correct them should you commit a click error. So, don't be lazy. You protect yourself from errors with a higher click speed, meaning that your opponents will have fewer errors to punish you for.
(BTW...lots of luck, Kalista. You and your “misclick to die” passive looks really dangerous to use in high level play...)
With regards to skillshot dodging, a high-APM style is invaluable, and even better if you naturally keep your cursor close to your champion. By doing this, you can change your champion's direction at any time, which is what you'll need to make sure that Morgana Q safely goes past.
To practice this, get a friend to lane against you in a custom game, and give him a skillshot champion. On your end, take some white masking tape and cordon off a square in the center of your monitor, big enough for you to move in any direction, and thin enough not to interfere with the display too much (I took one three-inch piece of tape, and cut it lengthwise into 4 narrow, three-inch strips). Lock your camera and lane against him for a while, only removing your cursor from the box when last hitting or firing a skillshot. Once you get used to this “fast and near” style, return to your unlocked camera and play normally. If you're using your ears to hear it coming as mentioned above, you’re all set and ready do decide which way to dodge and to dodge it.
Finally, the “fast and near” style will make it much less likely for you to lose your cursor. After all, it's near your champion. If you make a habit of returning your cursor to your champion after every time you take a significant movement (a camera adjustment, a long skillshot, etc), you'll always know where it is, and you won't have to waste any time looking for it.
KITING
In another of my attempts to pick a champion I can dominate games with, I recently gave Draven a try. If you can click correctly you'll wreck anyone. So I got into a few team builders and gave it a whirl. Naturally, I fell flat on my face. Simple laning took much more effort than I was used to, and when it came time to actually fight, I was making a fool of myself. I lost my cursor constantly, walk faulted all over the place, and generally embarrassed everyone who watched me. I've since returned to good ol' Caitlyn as my go-to ADC pick.
Naturally, this was a while ago. When I got used to playing Caitlyn more and I ironed out my kiting style with her, playing Draven with friends later became a cinch. What it came down to was using one of two kiting methods in different situations.
Solution: Rapidclick kite when attack moving forward, Attackmove kite when moving back.
“Rapidclick” kiting is the version where you just right click everything very fast. Right click the target to shoot, move the cursor, right click the ground to move, move the cursor back to the target, right click to shoot. This is not that hard if your mouse movements are small. If your mouse movements are large, you're begging to commit walk faults. So, it's easy when the target and the direction you want to move are the same direction; click the target, then click right next to him. Easy peasy. But, if you're running away, this style of kiting is too risky.
Instead, you can Attackmove kite when tracking backward. You keep the cursor in the same place, the direction you want to move in. When you want to shoot, shift click, a-click, or whatever you have the “attack move click” bound to in your key bindings. This minimizes mouse movement, thus minimizing the risk of a walk fault or a lost cursor.
In other games, “mechanics” means something else than it does here. In fighting games, it means recognizing when the opponent can't do something because of a particular choice they made. For example, Street Fighter 2 (Super Turbo)'s Zangief's spinning piledriver's move command starts with joystick movement AWAY from the opponent, a little more joystick movement, then pushing a button. If Zangief is walking TOWARD the opponent, how can he start the spinning piledriver? The joystick's in the wrong place. He'll have to move it to back to start it, meaning he'll stop walking forward, and you'll know it's coming.
In this manner, make sure you don't saddle yourself with Zangief's problem. Clicking tempo is much easier to control than mouse movement, so don't put yourself in positions for your cursor to be in the wrong place. Use the “fast and near” style in general, and make sure you use the right kiting style at the right time.
As an aside, there's a caveat about attackmove kiting: if you're running away from multiple targets, you may end up shooting the wrong one. That's a problem. In this case, you'll have to rapidclick kite. Good news...that's the next section!
RAPIDCLICK KITING, REACTION TIME
Solution: Play fast clicking games like this one.
Man, dat search bar.
Anyway, mouse movement, muscle memory, and rapid clicking are all learned skills. You weren't born with them, there's no evolutionary reason to have them, and you're not going to get them without practice. So...go practice. The link provided is to a flash game that you can play to practice. Write down your scores, and try to improve them.
As a side note, the reaction time version of the game is a little odd. It'll make you react to a stimulus with no warning whatsoever. That's not of very much use to us in LoL, as we know the champion we're up against, know what they can do, and can use tells and other information to prepare us for when we finally have to react. I tried to find some anticipation games, where you get a score of reaction time, but you're given warning of when the signal begins. Instead, try using a stop watch, and try to stop and start the clock on XXX.00 seconds. You can see which direction you miss in (don't ever do it early), and see how far late you are.
Well, that's all I got for now. Here are the tools you'll need to get ahead. I know it's the last day of the season, so if you have a ranked goal to hit tonight, go for it. But, come tomorrow, if you're still just queuing for games and not bothering to practice the skills developed here...well, it's your ranked career. You're the one who has to live with it.

How to survive TI8 while still being an integrated member of society

As we know from previous experiences, The International raises many questions asked by those around us who are inquisitive and sometimes surprised by our fascination with "just a video game". Below are a few of the questions you can look forward to answering, and some of the best ways to do do. Feel free to add yours below and I'll add them in.
Q: What is DotA 2? A: It's a strategic online game where two teams of five people try to destroy each other's bases. The first to do so wins. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cp8neRiF9-k)
Q: Why are you watching this instead of coming to [insert "important event]? A: Because The International comes about once a year - think of it as the World Cup of DotA tournaments, with a prize pool upwards of $24m.
Q: Why do you care so much about it? A: It's usually the one week a year I set aside for really geeking-out and immersing myself in the games
Q: Why aren't you playing in it? A: The level of skill involved in competitions like this is very high - teams live and train together in the same house. Think of it like football/soccer: what I do when I play is like a weekend kick-about with friends, what they do is like playing in the top division of the league.
Q: But surely it's just bashing buttons on a keyboard? A: Not necessarily, there are such complex decisions to make both prior to and during the game that can make the difference between winning and losing.
Q: Who watches it? A: Over 900,000 people globally excluding China. If you include China it jumps to around 10,900,000! (https://esc.watch/tournaments/dota2/international-2017)
Q: Isn't it just for kids? A: The average age of teams playing in this year's tournament is 23.72 (cred u/fireattack https://www.reddit.com/DotA2/comments/8ww5ec/average_age_of_each_position_of_ti8_players/). This isn't too dissimilar to the FIFA World Cup 2018, where the average age was 27.4 (https://resources.fifa.com/mm/document/tournament/competition/02/92/14/30/ciesstudy_neutral.pdf)

Early life[edit]
Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahavoric in North Hollywood, California, on February 29, 1960.[7] Robbins is the eldest of three children and his parents divorced when he was 7. His mother then had a series of husbands, including Jim Robbins, a former semiprofessional baseball player who legally adopted Anthony when he was 12.[8]
Robbins was raised in Azusa and Glendora, California, and attended Glendora High School. He was elected student body president in his senior year. While growing up, Robbins worked as a handyman to help provide for his siblings.[9]
During high school, Robbins grew ten inches, a growth spurt later attributed to a pituitary tumor.[7] He has said his home life was "chaotic" and "abusive". When he was seventeen years old, he left home and never returned.[7] Robbins later worked as a janitor, and did not attend college.[10]
Career[edit]
Robbins began his career promoting seminars for motivational speaker and author Jim Rohn when he was 17 years old.[11][12][13]
In the early 1980s, soon after meeting Neurolinguistic Programming co-founder John Grinder, the two became partners. At this time Robbins taught NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis.[13] In 1983 Robbins learned to firewalk, and incorporated it into his seminars.[14]
In 1988 Robbins released his first infomercial, Personal Power, produced by Guthy Renker,[15] which helped to promote his services as a "peak performance coach". The infomercial helped Robbins gain wide exposure, selling his Personal Power self-help audiotapes. His early infomercials featured celebrities such as Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton and actor Martin Sheen. By 1991 an estimated 100 million Americans in 200 media markets had seen his infomercials.[16]
In 1997, Robbins began the Leadership Academy seminar.[17][18] He is a speaker on the seminar circuit sponsored by Learning Annex.[19] Robbins was a featured speaker at the 2007 Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference. As of August 2012, his talk was the sixth most popular in the history of the event.[20]
Together with Cloé Madanes, Robbins founded the Robbins-Madanes Center for Intervention, an organization that trains life skills coaches to help families and individuals deal with addiction and other issues.[18][21]
In 2014, Robbins, along with a group of investors including Magic Johnson, Mia Hamm, and Peter Guber, acquired rights to launch a Major League Soccer franchise in Los Angeles, California, currently referred to as the Los Angeles Football Club. The soccer team is scheduled to begin competition in 2018.[22][23][24]
In 2016, Robbins partnered with Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber and Washington Wizards co-owner Ted Leonsis to purchase Team Liquid, an eSports pro gaming organization.[25] In 2017 Team Liquid won The International 7, a Dota 2 tournament with a prize pool of over $24 million.[26]
Robbins has worked on an individual basis with Bill Clinton,[27] Donald Trump,[28] Justin Tuck, Wayne Gretzky,[29] Serena Williams,[30] Hugh Jackman[31] and Pitbull.[32] He has also counseled American businessmen Peter Guber, Steve Wynn and Marc Benioff.[33] He was named one of the "Top 50 Business Intellectuals" by Accenture[34] and one of the "Top 200 Business Gurus" by the Harvard Business Press,[35] and is ranked on the Forbes Celebrity 100.[36]
Select bibliography[edit]
As of 2017 Robbins has written five books, four of them best-sellers,[citation needed] including Unlimited Power[37][dead link] and Awaken the Giant Within, which is a New York Times best-seller.[38]
In 2014, inspired by the financial crisis that cost many Americans their retirement savings,[39] he published Money: Master the Game, which reached #1 on the New York Times best-selling list in December.[40]

Teachings[edit]
Personal performance[edit]
Throughout his writings, seminars, and speeches, Robbins espouses viewpoints, techniques, and other practices he asserts can help adherents improve their lives.[41] Among these are methods he calls the "controlling state" and "neuro-associative conditioning".[42] He speaks a great deal about various "human needs, influences that affect people, the power of making decisions" and the need to achieve "emotional mastery". He has said that, to live an extraordinary life, you must master two things: "the science of achievement" and "the art of fulfillment".[43][44][45]
Seminars[edit]
Robbins holds multiple seminars annually. These seminars include Unleash the Power Within, Date with Destiny, Life and Wealth Mastery, Business Mastery and Leadership Academy.[46] He has identified seven "keys to business mastery": create loyal, satisfied customers and culture; be honest about where the business is, and create an effective business map; strategic innovation; world-class marketing; sales mastery systems; financial and legal analysis; and optimization and maximization of people and processes.[47]
Health and energy[edit]
"Energy: The Fuel of Excellence", a chapter in Unlimited Power, is dedicated to a discussion of health and energy. It endorses the Fit For Life program of Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, food combining and deep breathing. Robbins refers to Harvey and Marilyn Diamond as his "former partners".[48]
Later in his career, in his audio product Living Health, Robbins changed his teachings on health slightly. He attributes this change to the influence of Robert O. Young. In Living Health, he endorses natural hygiene, the alkaline diet, live blood analysis[49] and the works of Antoine Béchamp.[50]
Philanthropy[edit]
Anthony Robbins Foundation[edit]
In 1991, Jay Robbins founded the Anthony Robbins Foundation.[51] The charity helps individuals and organizations to make a difference in the quality of life for youth, homeless, hungry, prisoners, elderly and disabled.[52] The Basket Brigade, one of the programs of the Foundation, brings groups of volunteers across the world together to assemble and deliver baskets of food and household items to needy families.[53]
In 2016 Robbins and his Foundation partnered with Bob Carr and the Give Something Back Foundation on the ROC 'N Robbins Challenge event. Carr matched the $1 million Robbins donated at the event, with the proceeds going to send 100 low-income students to medical school.[54]
Independent charity watchdog Charity Navigator gives the Anthony Robbins Foundation a rating of four out of four stars.[55]
Feeding America[edit]
In 2014, he donated the profits of his book, Money: Master the Game, along with an additional personal donation, through Feeding America to provide meals to people in need.[56] The combined donation fed 100 million needy people in 2014-15, according to the charity.[57][58] Robbins partnered with the charity again in 2016 to provide 100 million more meals.[59] On February 2, 2017, Feeding America announced that the 100 Million More Meals Challenge, conducted in partnership with Robbins, helped provide more than 101.6 million meals to children, families and seniors through Feeding America's network of 200-member food banks in 2016. Robbins is also donating profits from Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook to Feeding America.[60]
Spring Health[edit]
Robbins works with a water company called Spring Health, which provides fresh water to small villages in rural eastern India to prevent waterborne diseases.[61]
X-Prize Foundation[edit]
He is also a benefactor of the X-Prize Foundation. Robbins joined Elon Musk and donated to the Global Learning X-Prize.[62]
Underground Railroad[edit]
Robbins helped raise more than $1 million for Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit organization that fights against child trafficking and slavery with the assistance of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives.[63]
Legal issues[edit]
In May 1995, Robbins Research International (R.R.I.) settled with the Federal Trade Commission over alleged violations of the agency's Franchise Rule. Under the settlement, R.R.I. was not found to have violated any law and agreed to pay $221,260 in consumer redress.[64]
Wade Cook sued Robbins for allegedly using copyrighted terms from Cook's book Wall Street Money Machine in Robbins' seminars. In 2000, a jury awarded Cook $655,900 judgement, which was appealed.[65][66] Cook and Robbins settled for an undisclosed amount.[67][68]
In 2001, the British Columbia Supreme Court ruled that The Vancouver Sun had defamed Robbins when it called him an "adulterous, wife-stealing hypocrite. "The court awarded Robbins $20,000 in damages and his legal costs.[69][70]
In July 2012, the San Jose Mercury News published a story reporting that multiple people had been burned and hospitalized during one of Robbins' fire-walking events on July 19, 2012. This story was picked up by other media outlets, including Fox News. These reports were later retracted as inaccurate.[71] A similar corrective article was published by The Huffington Post.[72][73]
On June 24, 2016, it was reported that "dozens were burned and required medical attention after attempting to walk on hot coals during a fire-walking event at a Tony Robbins seminar in Dallas, Texas".[74] Several attendees were transported to medical facilities to treat burns, and a bus was used as a staging-area for between 30 and 40 people who were less seriously hurt.[75] A spokeswoman for the Robbins organization stated, "Someone unfamiliar with the process of the fire-walk called 911 reporting the need for emergency services vehicles […] there was no need for emergency personnel […] only 5 of 7,000 participants requested an examination beyond what was readily available on site."[76]
Television and film[edit]
Robbins has played cameo roles in the films Reality Bites, The Cable Guy[77] and the 2001 film Shallow Hal.[78] He also appeared in The Roseanne Show and an episode of The Sopranos.[79] He plays himself in the 2010 documentary film The Singularity Is Near: A True Story about The Future.[80]
He was lampooned in the Family Guy episode "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein"[81] and the Beavis and Butt-head episode "The Miracle That is Beavis".
In July 2010, NBC debuted "Breakthrough with Tony Robbins", a reality show that followed Robbins as he helped the show's participants face their personal challenges.[82][83] NBC canceled the show after airing two of the planned six episodes due to low viewership of 2.8 million.[84] In March 2012, the OWN Network picked up the show for another season beginning with the original first season set to re-run and thereafter leading directly into the new 2012 season.[85][86] In April 2012, Robbins began cohosting Oprah's Lifeclass on the OWN Network.[87]
In 2015, film maker Joe Berlinger directed and produced the documentary "Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru", about the Tony Robbins event "Date with Destiny" after filming it in Boca Raton, Florida, in December 2014.[88] It premiered at the South by Southwest film festival in March 2016[89] and opened the American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs) in Palm Springs in February 2016.[90] The documentary was translated into languages for 190 countries and released by Netflix on July 15, 2016.[88][91]
Personal life[edit]
In 1984, he married Rebecca "Becky" Jenkins, after meeting her at a seminar.[92][93][94] Jenkins had three children from two former marriages whom Robbins adopted. Robbins and Jenkins filed for divorce 14 years later.[94]
In 1984, Robbins and former girlfriend Liz Acosta had a son Jairek Robbins, who is also a personal empowerment trainer.[95]
Robbins married Bonnie "Sage" Robbins (née Humphrey) in October 2001.[96] Robbins resides in Palm Beach, Florida.[97]

Questions Answers
What tools (3d/music/os/programming) and engine do you use in developing necro ? and from were came the idea of a Linux client ? We're using a great engine called ShiVa by Stonetrip to make the game itself. It's a great tool to work with. I'm personally using 3Dstudio to do artwork for Nekro, though our lead artist uses Maya (and hates me for using 3Dstudio haha). We're using Photoshop and Painter for textures, Audacity and Pro Tools for music and sound, and all of our rigs run Windows.
My idea for Linux came from a buddy I had way back in the day. Before Linux was even around, he only had an old mac (it's all his parents ever bought him) and he always had to come over to my house to play PC games. The only games for mac were like Marathon and Oni and some lame learning games so he always felt really alienated from the gaming scene. For Nekro, I didn't want to leave anyone out. I think everyone should have a chance to enjoy it.
As a developer what do you most enjoy doing? As a developer I enjoy doing everything. It's why I've been hired for so many different jobs. I love art, I love programming, and I love design and sound. I've been told it's rare to have such a diverse skillset but I've pretty much dedicated my life to learning as much as I can about my trade so to me it's just second nature. :)
Any idea what time the beta starts? Half a year? Or will it take longer? And when will the 2d screensavers come out for those who bought it? :) You mean desktop picture right? (Though a screen saver is an amazing idea.) We'll try to get it out as soon as we get a picture that we feel is strong enough. We want to give the community a bit of time to come up with some new monsters for the game and then if there's a really popular one we can do the picture of that monster.
The beta will start as soon as we have the game at a very playable place. I would love to have it ready in about 8 months, but I don't want that to be misread as a promise. I will never release a game before it's ready so it will happen when we feel the game is ready for it.
How is your work on the big AAA game going to influence Nekro ? could you invest yourself in Nekro fully and still work with the big company ? P.S Any chance to convince that big company to make a Linux port of their unannounced game ? When my contract is over, I'm going to work on Nekro completely. Now that our KS funding is successful, this task won't be much easier because we'll be able to hire help. I've been saving up a very long time for this, so I look forward to finally cutting the cord and doing it all on my own.
Oh man I wish but no, they will never make a Linux port. I have no idea why but people seem not to care in large studios. No money behind it or something. Don't worry though, Nekro's got your back ;)
How much extra work does it take to convert a game available for Mac and PC to work on Linux? It can be a lot, or a little if the engine natively supports Linux. It depends on a lot of different factors.
Shame, so when will your contract be over so you can fully work on Nekro ? Looks at kickstarter in about....3 days. :D.
Ok, so who are your co-workers at DarkForgeGames ? ;) Or they also under contract ? Some are, some are not. Myself, the designer and the artist are all working with me on the same project as such they are bound by the same terms. Our animator and composer however are not. Our animator is Steve Kim, a very talented person who's worked at Sony for SOE. Our composer is Steve Juarez (yes two steves is confusing for us too) who did the music you hear in the pitch video.
So, you are 5 people, the two stevens, tiffany, and i didn't understand you name in the video, but i think you said your name is "J". still one missing :) My question is... who are we talking to? don't need to tell your real name, but i thought all the time that we are talking to tiffany!!! ;) Haha nope, and it's Jay ;)
Did you teach yourself to use the programs or have informal/formal training? if you taught yourself how easy is it to get into that kind of work? Yes, I taught myself. When I left high school sophomore year my parents were very supportive. They saw how bored I was in class and knew the public school system wasn't doing me any favors. They got me books on 3D engines, trig, algebra and artwork. I spent years reading those books cover to cover, drawing as much as I could and trying to make games.
I would say from my personal experience it's not hard to get into as long as you want it. It takes hundreds of hours of work to get to a level where you can feel comfortable and confident in coding, artwork, or design. It's not for the feint of heart but if you want it enough all the resources are there for you to learn.
Wow so awesome your parents realize the schooling system isnt for everyone and didnt flip a shit when you said you wanted to drop out. Well, at first they did. But then they realized I spent my free time reading math books and drawing game mechanics on a whiteboard they bought for me and not sitting around doing nothing like all my friends were doing and went, "Ehh he'll be alright." ;)
That's pretty badass. Do you have any suggestions for someone wanting to get into game development / 3D? Just soak up as much as you can. There's so many different facets to a game from the technical knowledge of how engines work, to game design theory to art styles and animation. It's a massive subject with tons to explore. The good news is the internet has websites for every single aspect of it, and you can easily get started with just a simple google search. I would really recommend learning a "middleware" game engine like Unity 3D. This will help you start getting your ideas and concepts together in a very hands on way. Good luck!
You mention how small the industry is, so how does one break in to the industry? Is it best to start indie and try and get noticed or to try for an established company and then go indie once you have a reputation? Such a good question, but so hard to answer because it comes down to personal goals. For me, I want to work on indie games forever. If a company I worked for ever got too big I would leave and look for a smaller studio. I love the personal connections and ability to wear many hats. I've worked for some very big companies and I've never been happy in terms of my overall goal - to own my own small studio. However, many people I know (most of them, come to think of it) dream of working in those big studios. Their end goal is a higher position within these places. So it all comes down to what you want.
If you want want take the indie route, nothing is stopping you. You can just do it. It's one hell of a hard world to make noise in because the market is so over saturated (just look at the app store) but if you can make a good, solid and fun game you will rise to the top.
If your goal is to work at a big name like Blizz or Valve then you have to play by their rules a bit more. Getting any kind of experience is what will get you noticed. And I hate to use this cliche, but you have to know someone. The odds are stacked against you if you don't have an inside guy who can drop your resume on the lead designer's desk. You can use so many different methods to meet people - social networking, making a game that gets attention, even being a passionate fan of a big studio's work can get you attention.
Of course, there's also the QA route. You can get hired as a entry-level QA tester, but let me tell you - you will not be 'playing' games all day as Grandma's Boy will have you think. It's very tedious and repetitive work. I was fortunate enough to bypass QA and get into the industry using my own games I made as proof of my abilities so I don't know the details of this route too intimately. However, just know that getting a QA job with the hopes of being promoted to a design position is just as hard as the job itself. You'll have to really go above and beyond to stand out to your seniors. Also, you have to make sure the company you join allows for vertical movement within the QA department. They all claim they do - but some really don't. Do your research and make sure the place you apply for has proven to promote QA employees to other positions.
I was considering getting a degree in video game design. I love video games, and can't get enough of them. To be able to create games for a living would seem like a dream come true. however I also want to be a marine pilot and intend on being a officer. I'll be about in my mid thirties when I stop flying. My question is, is there any point to getting a degree in game design if I'm going to be in the marines for half my career life? In my own opinion, there's no point to getting a degree in game design even if you're not going to join the marines. (That's awesome by the way, lots of respect to you man.) A 'design degree' isn't recognized in the industry and year after year people continue to get them. It's bizarre considering how many thousands of dollars it costs. As I told someone else a general computer science degree is MUCH more valuable and will help you get a job. This is a true story: I've seen one of my bosses from a few years ago actually throw away all the resumes in a applicants pile that featured a 'design degree' just because it showed how out of touch they were with the industry. It can actually do more harm than good. Get a CS degree instead. :)
If you could pick any game to have been apart of which would you choose? I wish I could have worked on the old bullfrog games. They are my favorite of all time. I still remember playing populous 2 in the morning before school, then when my parents forced me to go to school, I went into classrooms at recess and drew the game screen on the chalkboard. I was that addicted. And to have been a part of it would have been incredible.
THEME PARK. My favorite childhood game <3. I always put SO much salt on the fries. Let's just leave it at that haha!
How many people are in the Nekro team and that do they do ? how many more are you looking to hire/freelance ? We have 5 people on the Nekro team. A composer, a designer, an artist, an animator and me...the everything guy. We are hoping to turn that into about 7-8 people. We're looking to hire a character artist, an environment artist, a composer and a programmer.
What kind of games you prefer to make ? What kind of games you prefer to play ? I really like making creature games (as you can tell) and games with lots of unique mechanics. I love combining genres. I also really like making games that feel like they are toys. As a child I played in a sandbox by assigning rulesets to all my little Tonka trucks. That memory still influences me to this day and I love that overhead 'kid in a sandbox' feel. In terms what I like to play I love games with lots of immersion or lots of competition. It's why I like Starcraft 2 so much, it has such a cool world and it's so competitive. I love watching e-spots events online, it's my version of football haha.
Who decided to make the pigs poop? I did. And it's effin' awesome. :D.
Do you use Flash for Linux version? I've looked at ShiVa's site and it seems like engine supports Windows and Mac OS X, but there's no mention of Linux. What programming languages do you use in Nekro? Some of the site is a bit dated. We are able to export to Linux. We use C++, Lua and XML.
What is "The Alchemist's Journal" exactly ? can we get it as PDF (digital) ? The Alchemist's Journal is a lore focused art book. It will contain back story and diagrams about the world of Nekro. It will be done in a "alchemist's experiment notebook" style, so you'll find lots of little notes taken about each creature almost like the Nekro himself is logging information. It will have anatomical cutaways of the creatures and just give a cool alternative glance into the Nekro universe.
Cool, any chance for a PDF (digital) version for those of us who live overseas ? Yes.
As someone who also wants to enter this industry: Would you advice me to start as an indie directly out of high school/college, or to get some experience at a big company? Well it all depends on your ultimate goal, do you want to work for a big company or be an indie?
I have several ideas for things that I think would make lovely games, but I do not have the technical skills for parts of the development process. I can do the programming stuff, but I know little about graphic design or 3d modelling. What would you suggest for a person like me? Is there a good way to pitch an idea to a game company and possibly see something cool made? Ideas are never in short supply. Seldom with you find a company with a full staff sitting around waiting for an idea from which to make a game. Most of the time it's the other way around. There's too many ideas and not enough people/time. I would say that your best bet is to make it yourself, and use the internet to find artists. It will be a part-time project and trust me I know how hard it is to come home from a long day's work and then start work on your own project. But in my opinion, that's what separates the doers from the dreamers. If you want it enough, find the people that share your dream and make it happen. The internet has literally everything you could ever need to learn tools, concepts and techniques. It's just a matter of putting in the time to do it. :)
What race and what league do you play in starcraft? :) Zerg (is there even anything else worth playing...really now!) And I'm top 5 wood league. ;) Haha no I'm terrible, I'm like rank 12 gold league. But damn do I love that game.
Your kickstarter-campaign had its ups and downs so far. was there a moment when you thought: "we are not going to make it" ? whats your emotional state right now? ;) I thought that every day haha! It was a rough ride and there was doubt at many points. But I knew Nekro was a great idea and if we just kept pushing for it it would get more attention. And now, I'm doing absolutely fantastic! :)
I've asked this to other designers who have done Iamas but, I work in video production and I'm thinking of switching over to games as a cinematic director or concept artist of some sort. Any advice for breaking in? For artists it's all about the portfilio. I've seen guys get hired stright out of college because their portfolio was so good. I've also seen industry vets of over 20 years get turned down because their portfolio wasn't good enough. If your movie work is really solid, you're good to go. Just put together a nice presentation and send it around. It helps if you know someone on the inside that can 'boost' your resume to the higherups, but it's not necessary.
Many people don't like the idea of a multiplayer co-op so much (you can read it at the comments on KS), maybe it's better to make Nekro bigger instead ? That's why we set our goal for MP pretty high. I will always make a solid single player experience over a sub-par single and MP game. If it comes down to it, we will just make Nekro single player. Given the mechanics of the game, I think it will still be a ton of fun single player so I'm not too worried about whichever route we choose. :)
What do you suggest for a senior in high school looking into the programming/.video game design field for college? I have a very skewed view on the school system. I would never advocate to drop out, or not go to school. I've seen it work for many very brilliant people, however, it just wasn't for me. That said, I'm always careful telling people to go to trade schools about video game design. They love to take your money and spit you out with no way of getting a job. Industry experience is really one of the main things that gets a person hired (or an amazing portfolio if you're an artist). Obviously, this is a catch 22 because you need experience to get the experience. The best ways into the game industry in my opinion (and this is just my 2 cents, don't read this as law) is to make a game or mod that gets widespread attention. Blizzard and Riot snatched up the DotA guys, and there's been countless game mods that have gotten people jobs. If you do decide to take the college route a general computer science degree is much more valuable than a design associates degree at a trade school.
For you I would suggest just learning as much as you can about how games work. Then when you feel ready, get together with some passionate buddies together and make a game or mod. Then enter it in festivals, put it on the internet and just advertise the crap out of it. Use that experience to try to get a job in the game world at the same time and meanwhile go to school for a computer science degree. By time the two things end you'll be set.
What advice would you have for someone who wanted to work in the game industry? What I really want to do is be an Indie Game developer. I'm 13 and starting high school next year. For someone as young as you I would say just focus on learning everyhing you can about how games work. Do whatever you can to figure out why game mechanics work the way they do. Just play video games - but when you play, look at them from as many angles as you can. Try to figure out the technology that goes into it. Try to figure out how the game's artists made this asset, or why they made some unit do the thing he did. Starting to analyze games so you see them for what they really are is so important at your age. Then as you get a bit older, start moving into the field you want - art, design, programming, UI design, sound etc. Don't worry if you don't know what you want to do specifically, that will come with time. Hope that helps!
I've been following Nekro for a while now. I'm really excited that you guys are funded and look forward to it coming out. You mention both Myth and Dungeon Keeper as influences; can you mention what the biggest influence was for both of those games? Do you mean what were the influences for the people making DK and Myth?
I don't really know to what to compare Nekro in this question, but if you take HoMM games for example, after each level you keep the hero (level) but lose the armies you had, what will you keep/lose after each level of Nekro ? Each time you restart the game you lose your Nekro tower progress (it's where all your spells come from) but you keep all your Nekro armor sets. This makes it kind of like LoL in the way that your champion starts from level 1 each game, but your summoner data persists between levels.
What DLC of Nekro can we expect ? (please be detailed) I would love to release more monsters, more tilesets (areas of the world) more units and more armor sets. The game really lends itself to an expandable world and it's awesome how much content we can bring to it after it's initial release.
How many units/creatures do you plan for the initial release? As many as we can get. I know that's a loose answer, but we need to see how fast we can start churning out units. I want many many units in Nekro :)
You say that you were a gamer before getting into the industry. Would you say that working on games at a professional level has affected your enjoyment when gaming during leisure time? I'd imagine it'd be hard to sit back and enjoy gaming without dissecting them... Also, I'm about to venture in game development myself (Just simple 2D stuff using C# with XNA). Would you have any advice for someone like me? It's funny, because when I was getting into games I thought it was going to 'ruin the magic' for me. Almost like being behind the scenes at a play I thought it would break my immersion to know all the tricks. But the funny thing is, it actually made me appreciate it even more. Even though I know a sunset in a game is a big texture being rendered on 5 sides of an inverted box, it doesn't change my enjoyment of that scene. I still find the vistas in Skyrim breathtakingly beautiful. My immersion is only bolstered by the knowledge of how much painstaking work goes into each and every asset in a game. In fact, whenever I play a game over the internet with my friends they often yell "What the hell are you doing?!" while they are busy getting wailed on by a monster. Meanwhile, I'm staring at a texture on a wall trying to figure out how they made the normal map get so much pop. That scene plays out more often than I'd like to admit haha!
As far as advice you seem to have it down. If you start working with XNA you're already on the right track. The only way to learn is by doing and just experimenting with the different toolsets is such a good way to familiarize yourself with how game engines work.
I just remembered another question - sorry. After you finish working with those other companies, will your name be revealed? And on the zombie cat.. It could be like a charmer, so it sneaks up and then flips out.. sinister giggle Yes, I'm going to do a video and introduce myself and all that good stuff once my contract ends.
How do you feel about DLC and microtransactions versus large expansion packs? How will the future of Nekro be effected by the current DLC trends in the industry? I really miss large expansion packs. Come to think of it I miss the days when you didn't have to log into your facebook account on the main page of a game to play it. But...times change. And I have to keep up to stay relevant in the industry.
I think micro-transactions are definitely the future of gaming. They allow a much lower bar of entry because games can be given out for free. But they do add a bit of a "someone's trying to sell me something" vibe. I like games that are all encompassing. I don't mind paying more money to know I'm getting a complete product.
The good news for Nekro is we're making a game that lends itself to these DLC trends very nicely. New units, monsters, areas, and armor sets are very easy to separate out and sell as DLC packs.
Some developers open forums but take no part it it, they leave it to the fans. other developers are very involved in the development of their projects with the fans and speak with them daily...what are you ? We're going to be on our forums every day. We will not be spectators in our own world, I promise that. :)
Is programming the best role to land a job in the video game industry? I'm in college getting a degree in computer science, and I really fucking want to make video games. :D. Programmers make the most money (mostly) and are always in short supply. If you got the chops, you got the job when it comes to programming.
The iPhone/Android app sounds nice for testing out your unit composition? do you have any other secret plans on the app, besides beeing a companion? I'm going to be the only mainly running the stream, our artist is a bit more reserved. So a lot of the time you will most likely see code, but I also did all the environmental artwork so you may catch me zbrushing a few rocks now and again ;)
I'm really interested in you live streams. sounds great to see a new unit getting drawn! As for the app we really wanna make it as cool as possible but we don't want it to detract from the game at all so we will intentionally be limiting its functionality to information gathering exclusively.
When do you think Nekro will be finished ? I would like it to be finished in about a year to a year and a half.
My dream is to be a sound designer for video games. I'm currently studying a two year music technology course at college (UK, two years before i would go off to university). Where can i go from here to chase my dream? I'll admit, I'm not very familiar with the sound side of the video game world. I have a buddy who used to work at Full Sail in Florida as a sound engineer, and now works for Disney. Let me ask him and I'll post his response.
Ok I pinged him, here was his response: "Start small and keep moving forward. Hook up with student projects, mods, or indie games. This is really key because there are countless games in development almost anywhere you look and regardless of skill level they all need SFX, voice or music. It won’t take long before you find something that you’re proud to be part of and that looks good on a resume. Get active on forums and don’t stop learning. Rescore or respot audio from gameplay or game trailers and get it online! Build momentum! At a certain point I didn’t even have to advertise my services because the offers started finding me instead of the other way around."
For a group of guys who want to make indie games in the future, what do you recommend as the best programming/scripting language to start learning? Something that you can actually start creating with? I'm going to help kickstart your game as thanks for the AMA :D. And as far as what to learn, Unity 3D and ShiVa (the one we're using) are brilliant engines. You can jump in pretty quick and have something to show for it with not a ton of work. I love that the industry is becoming so accessible! It's a very good time to be an indie dev. :)
I've been in a "digital media" program in my states university for 3 years now and I'm just a year from graduating. However as of late I've got the impression that if I dropped out and focused on building a portfolio with the knowledge I've gained, I could get a job in 6 months. Am I just wasting my time getting a degree or should I just keep going since I'm so close to graduating? What a brilliant question. Please take my advice as just that - advice. I would never tell anyone what to do with their life and ultimately this choice is one only you can make. If you're already almost to the finishing line, you might as well do so. Having something to show for your work is always better than not. I am, however, a big believer in doing things your own way as that's how I've lived my entire life. If you feel your time is better spent elsewhere then go ahead and make the leap. One way or another, building a portfolio will never be a waste of your time - in school or not. The best thing I can say to you is no matter what you choose to work on the portfolio. It will be the deciding factor for getting a job in almost any creative industry.
Thanks for the reply I suppose I'll stick it out and graduate and build my portfolio while I'm at it. Do you have any advice in regards to making my portfolio? Yes, quality over quantity. One good image can land you a job. 20 mediocre images will get you passed right over. So just spend as much time as you can on making two to three stellar pieces for your portfolio, and don't worry if it looks a little empty. It's better to put your best foot forward and end up a little light on content.
Thanks for all your advice, I was kinda worried that my portfolio so far is looking kinda sparse, but I do have one piece that is really good and two that just need tweaks. I will keep darkForge Games in mind when I'm applying for a job in the coming year, after I've refined my portfolio of course. Awesome! We'd love to see it! :D.
In your Nekro pitch video you seem to have what appears to be the very early stage of a respectable mullet. How does your alleged mullet influence character design, and if you plan to grow it into a true mullet over the course of development, do you intend to use said mullet growth as a means of tracking development milestones? The mullet will be used to augment game design mechanics into a single, reticulated cohesive bout of gameplay as well as a measuring tool for game progress. As the mullet is developed, therein the game will develop. Shoulder length will represent the half way point of our game's progress. Mid to upper back will designate the launch of beta, and of course, upper buttocks (AKA full-on stinky hippie mode) will be the designation of gold-master. If the mullet continues down into the buttocks, we will release an expansion pack. Suffice to say it will be business up front, party in the crack.
I can't program, and I can't draw. I'd like to work for a game company, am I screwed? Yes.
No I'm totally kidding. Of course not! You can be a tester, you can be a designer, a scripter, a producer, a sound engineer, a public relations associate, a manager. There's a million things you can do that isn't making the game directly. There's always a spot for you if you just look for it. I myself have invented positions at companies simply because they didn't know what to call me. If you bring something unique to the table there will always been room. :)
What's the best way to try and get into the industry directly out of high school? What degree should I get? I think my response to one of the other redditors said it best: Link to www.reddit.com
I saw that, but what I'm really asking is should I get degree should I get as a programmer? a CS degree? A computer information systems degree? Video game design? If you're going to go the college route, I would recommend a computer science degree. I would not recommend going to a trade school that will give you a 'degree' in video game design. It's not recognized in the industry as real experience, and is often times ignored. Stright out of high school I would go for the CS degree, and then try to make a game on your own. If you do those two things you should be set to get a great job if you apply yourself. :)
How hard is it to obtain the job of designing maps for multiplayer FPS games? That is my dream job in the game industry. I would LOVE to design maps for the Battlefield franchise... It's not harder than any other mid-level game job, honestly. Level designer comes with the same entry requirements as other design positions. A CS degree doesn't hurt, industry experience is a HUGE bonus, and lastly knowing someone on the inside is almost a sure fire way to at the very least get a design test. :)
Your game mechanics article says that a game with about 4-5 tiles can take 30 minutes... so i guess each tile is a quick skirmish with 5-10 minutes. how do you think a typical round will play? Yes, you can enter and exit a cell (tile) as many times as you want. Think of it like a level in mario, except each time you enter the level it generates it randomly based on a new set of parameters. So let's say you're attacking a town, and it's a blood moon. You enter the cell and are immediately surrounded by warewolves. You kill them with your melee Nekro attck, and use their bodies to summon some Punge. You start to move towards the town where you are met by a Hunter (a townie attack variant) you take down the hunter, but not before he sounds the alarm to the town. Now, a bunch of Townies, a witcher, and a couple priests come after you. You spawn a shade and cast protective bubble around you. You spawn horrors which fly at the townies and murder them, from which you can now raise more punge. The punges are busy fighting the witcher while the priests are in the back throwing holy bolts at you. You summon some scourge, run them behind the main line and gib the priests. This fills up your blood meter for your demon. Just as that happens, the Alpha Wolf appears and jumps into the front line, killing the witcher and your punge. You turn into the demon and move forward to smite the Alpha wolf....

Questions Answers
I've always wondered this. Has anyone ever picked a fight with you at a bar or somewhere else since you have started fighting? How would you react if they did? It happens all the time. I'm not the biggest guy, but I do like the ladies. I bring my wife when I go out, but that does not mean I dont try to get girls for my friends or just in general like having nice things to look at. This pisses a lot of guys off. I usually talk my way out of fights and my wife is amazing at calming me down. But there have been a few big buff dudes that got KO'ed by me, but I walk away almost all the time.
I'm surprised that your wife is ok with you "having nice things to look at" lol.. She is awesome.
Can you tell us about the time/times you didn't walk away? Not really.
Yeah, people tend to get pissed off if you flirt with their wife or girlfriend. If they dont saying anything how the hell am I supposed to know? People hit on my wife all the time and she just shuts them down.
One too many punches to the head? Probably
Nik: "On most IQ tests I score between 135 and 141. I score extremely high on spatial-temporal reasoning, as well as math and logic, but on language ability I score just above a mentally handicap." Lol. The truth hurts.......lol.
Thoughts on UFC 151 getting cancelled? In particular, how do you feel about Jon Jones now? I don’t understand his feelings on not taking the fight. He had every advantage. Sonnen just lost, had no time to train, is a 185 lb guy, and talks a lot of shit about Jones. It is just the perfect opportunity to shut him up…..I don’t know if he knew that the entire card would be cancelled or not. Taking a fight on short notice is very hard to do, not for the fighter who had the full camp, but for the guy stepping up. Sonnen was never my favorite fighter, but this shows that he really backs up what he says. Well played by Sonnen……Jones confused me and I think he made a horrible decision
Do you think that Dana could have saved the card some other way? Did he really have to cancel the event? It's the UFC's fault for not putting together a better card in-case the main event fell through. They should have had Nik Lentz on the card ;) Lol, I don't know how it works. I was surprised as anyone that it got canceled.....Dana is a smart guy, so I'm sure he tried everything.
I weigh about 100 pounds, how many times do you think you could punch me before I would die? Hmmmm I would hope I could do it in 30.
What do you do immediately before the fight to prepare yourself mentally? Nothing to special. The one thing I don’t like is people touching me. A hand shake or a hug is fine, but I really don’t like anyone in my space. I pace a little, remind myself I’m the man and am going to win, think about my family and how much I love them, and go out and try to hurt the guy trying to take my dreams from me.
Who is your favorite SC2 player and team? DRG, I like FXO because they have a great story and have worked hard to get where they are.

Thought on League of Legends? (Random question) Cool game, has the potential to be the biggest thing Esports has ever seen. I think SC is a much higher skill based game, but LOL is free and the learning curve is lower so it will always have a much larger audience.
I just watched the entire video... I'm so stoned. Link to www.youtube.com
How about Dota 2? I have played DOTA 2, but I dont play regularly
Who would win in a game of FootLoL, you or chirs kluwe (of the seattle seahawks)? I don't know what that is, so I guess him.
How do you feel about weight cutting in MMA in general? It seems crazy to me that two guys that weigh 170 cut down to 145 for one day, and then fight at 170. Why not just not cut weight at all? I think its good. It adds strategy to the game. Now that I have my weight and preparation planned out on such a high level, I will always have an advantage at 145. I have be in weight related sports for a long time now. I guess it just the norm for me.
Who is the craziest person you've ever trained with? Volkmann, dude is one of my best fighting friends, but he is an odd dude. He is also freaky strong……..He is probably the strongest human pound for pound. Never lifted a weight in his life, just killed pigs with his hands when he was a kid….lol.
Never lifted a weight in his life, just killed pigs with his hands when he was a kid. In your face, /Fitness Lolololol.
Who needs a gym when you have a farm. Farmers are always strong as hell.
What was the deciding factor in you moving down a weightclass? And how do you plan on separating yourself from other contenders in a pretty wide open division!? Some of the guys are 155 are bigger than me in every way. Height, reach, weight, etc…….I just did not want to deal with that anymore. I felt like I could be a great 155 lb guy, but a champion at 145. I will separate myself by my skills and strength. I did well at 155, I’m now one weight class down, stronger, faster, and am training right.
How much of the story to disclosed fighter payouts tell? How does sponsorship money compare to UFC salary? Not trying to ask your exact financial breakdown but there is so much mystery about this. Fighters don’t make very much money. You really do not make too much money until you get up to begging a main guy on the PPV’s. If you are one of the last 5 or 6 fights you are living well and if you are one of the last 2 you pay goes up by 5 to 10 times and main event probably 20-30 times…..if not more….Its feast or famine in the MMA world and most people are starving. I personally live a modest, but good life. Im far from rich, but I make more than the average person in the US. The mystery is because a lot of people do not want the world to know how little a lot of the guys make.
Hey Nik, cool for you to do this AMA. I would have never expected it... Joe Lauzon is usually around reddit and he did one a couple of years ago. Will this mean you'll keep using reddit from now on? ;) Also, I read a couple of days ago you invested your last * of the night bonus in changing training camps... how much money do fighters spend on average for their preparation? How fucked are the guys who were supposed to fight at UFC 151? Do you think there's any of them who might not be able to do a full training camp for their re-scheduled bout (do to the economic impact of not having fought on Sept.)? I'm on reddit everyday, I just use a different account. I figured I would make a new on for this....so everyone was not talking to CrypticG3n0cide. A lot of those guy are going to struggle and not be able to train as easily. I spent around 15k for my last fight camp. I dont really know what other guys are spending.
Fighter pay has been a big issue in the news recently. I know only part of a fighter's total pay is ever reported publicly. I'm wondering how much, or at least what percentage of pay, a fighter typically (or you specifically) gets for your show pay, win bonus, discretionary UFC performance bonus, sponsorship pay, and any other miscellaneous income? I kind of answered this question already, but in general most fighters do not make very much money. The top guys are making big bucks, but the lower guys are just getting by...
Which fighter influenced you the most to get into MMA? Not really one person. I take moves from people. For example GSP has the best double in the game. So I have watched every GSP fight and just watched his doubles over and over. I do this for every fighter.
Who are some of your favorite fighters to watch right now? Anderson.
How do you handle crowd pressure and Octagon jitters? It was only hard for my first fight. I got really tired 30 seconds into the fight. After that it was back to the norm. I have over 40 fights, so I don’t get too nervous about the crowd or the octagon
What was your proudest moment, what was least proud moment? My proudest moment is getting married to my wife. The least proud moment is fighting with my father at one point where we almost got to actually fighting.
What's your favorite kind of salad dressing? Blue Cheese and when I'm in fight camp two TBSP of Olive Oil and one TBSP of aged Balsamic Vinegar.
Prolly been asked before but any advice for people trying to lose weight? any ufc sex stories? any advice with the ladies? any life advice in general? You should go visit the dominican republic. The Dolce Diet will help you lose weight. I also post diet advice all the time on twitter and FB. I have no good UFC sex stories. The key to getting ladies is confidence and self respect. Dont case girls, make them pass a quality test as well. Are they funny? Smart? If they are not go find a different one. If you have respect in yourself, so will the ladies.
Touching off this, and this isn't taking away from your performance in any way, why do you think Japanese guys tend to have such poor results in the UFC? I heard that the flight puts their body out of whack but I wonder how much of that is true. I think the UFC is just a different level. Fighting in any other organization is nothing like fighting in the UFC. I think some of it has to do with travel, but people travel from EU, South America and every where else. It really has to do with the skill level in the UFC. The skill level in the UFC can not be reproduced anywhere.
Can you give me some specifics on your weight cut diet? I train MMA 2/3 times a week. Definitely a rookie as I've only been at it a little over a year. I eat mostly a paleo diet and hear the diets for cutting weight are similar. I'm sure you know what the paleo diet consists of... but just in case, it's organic meats/fish. Organic fruits & veggies, eggs, nuts, water. Nothing processed or un-natural, no carbs or starches. And... when you're not cutting weight what's your diet like? Just a free for all? Thanks. I don’t like the Paleo diet. First, I think their ideas on what and how people ate are wrong. They did eat the stuff in the diet back then, but the proportions are wrong. I would buy Dolce’s books and go from there. If you get high enough in the game you could hire him! Good luck man, keep me updated on your career on twitter @NikLentz
I'll help you with your pvz. Add me. Salgoud.419. 1400 masters zerg. I also do mma at Ivan's. Will trade lessons for advice on how to get better. Ok.
Do you think you're as good at MMA as MMA is at starcraft 2? :D. I'm way better ;)
Thanks for always giving us an Exciting! fights. We hear alot about TRT and guys who are just good at timing their cycles, but are their other things like blood doping or viagra going on behind the scenes? I dont take any kind of supplements. I think an all natural diet is way better and will lead to a long, fulfilled life. I hate TRT, I think its the biggest load of crap in the world. Its just legal cheating. I would love more testing and would be patient zero for any type of random testing. TRT is cheating to me and steroids are in all sports, but because I dont take them, Im not part of that social circle. So I probably dont know to much about it. As far as the other methods...I dont really know.
Sup bro, so what's your take on your new division? who do you think is at the top, and who do you want to fight next? I don’t really care who I fight next. The only thing that I want is to be able to have a full camp for it. It is harder to take shorter notice fights now because I will be training in Florida at ATT. I think the Franky is going to take the division over and will be the Champ. He will be the guy I have to beat to get the title. The weight class is stacked. I think 155 is the hardest weight class in the world ATM, but I think 145 is moving up the rankings.
Hypothetically speaking, if your life was on the line if you loose. Would rather face Jose Aldo in the Octagon or on 1vs1 on Starcraft 2? Aldo man, I would love to fight someone to the death….could you think of a better way to test yourself? Besides, even if I died (Which I would not ;) I would have some serious street cred in the after life!
Hey Nik, my goal is to make it into the UFC and was just wondering, when did you have your first ammy MMA fight, how long did it take you to go pro, and then how long was it to get in the UFC. Did you ever worry that you wouldnt make it in because there wasnt enough time to get all the fights that you wanted? I have been fighting for around 7 years. I never had an amateur fight. There is this horrible place that many fighters get stuck in. You have not beat a guy that’s good enough to get you recognized, yet no one that would be a great win on your record will fight you. It’s too dangerous for them to lose to you, and they gain nothing if they beat you. I was stuck in the situation for about a year and a half. I had no money, no one would fight me and the UFC didn’t want me. That was one of the hardest times of my life. On my 25th birthday I felt like the biggest loser in the world………Good luck and work hard! I wish you all the best! Keep me updated on twitter @NikLentz.
Any general clues as to the kind of person you don't want to be up against? At 145, I dont really care. If someone is taller than me, I will have the strength advantage. That was not the case at 155 and I had to fight lots of guys that were taller and weighed more. So at 145 I feel like there are no physical advantages that will not equal out.
Who are your favorite fighters to watch as a fan currently and all time? Who are your favorite fighters to watch as a fan currently and all time?
How is ATT working out for you so far? How is ATT working out for you so far?
What country that you haven't fought in yet would you like to? What country that you haven't fought in yet would you like to?
What other fighters are big gamers aside from Jens and Joe? What other fighters are big gamers aside from Jens and Joe?
JoLau says he spensd ~40K (maybe it was 20K) in training before a fight. What kind of money is there in MMA being spent on training/traveling/etc. Are you reimbursed by UFC for anything? Also UFC bonus. What is handed out besides the 3 they announce? Training camps are very expensive. My last training camp cost about as much as all the other ones combined. The UFC does not reimburse training camps. They give performance based bonuses. So if you fight hard you will get a little extra on the side. If you help promote and have a great main event, you could get a million dollar check. Most guys are getting very small bonuses, but every bit helps
Why is your nickname "The Carny"? Link to www.startribune.com
Hay Nik! I was wondering, what is Dana White like in person? I've always wanted to know what he's like away from the cameras :3. Also, I saw your featherweight debut live, great fight :D. He is just like he is on TV. Dana has been super cool with me. I think he is one of the coolest guys to work for. Although if you get on his bad side......I dont even want to know......
Toilet Paper - over or under? I had no idea that this was even an option when I was younger. It was always under and then randomly someone asked me like this......since then, I'm kind of a hybrid
So... you put the roll on its side? No I just switch back and forth.
Since Chess-Boxing is a thing, do you think you would dominate SC2-MMA, if it existed? It would not even be fun to watch, I would be that good.
How much pressure does the UFC give you to put on entertaining fights and take risks? A lot of pressure, sometimes so much guys crack and have horrible fights.
How much did you weigh in the ring in your last fight? I'd like to see a fighters weight the day of a fight. 165.
I read a post on the UG that said you tapped out Brock Lesnar in training. Can you confirm this? He was not going to hard, but I jumped on a guillotine and held on for the ride. He had to tap! It was awesome, but they he picked me up when we started again and threw me across the room.
Wow i had no idea there were any sc2 players in pro mma. Pretty cool. Congrats on your last fight! Any idea when you are fighting next? I do not know, but I want to fight in Dec.
Apparently I posted in the wrong thread but anyways is 145 the right division for you weight wise compared to 155? Definitely, I was undersized at 155. It did not matter before because I could make up for it with strength and technique. Once I was fighting top guys in the UFC the size was hard to deal with. I am also in way better shape and changed my training, so I would do better at 155 as well.
What's worse in your opinion, getting knocked out, chocked out, or submitted? They all suck....I'm the worst loser in the world..
Ok trying to think of something I haven't seen asked yet. First off, heard your interview on sherdog last week, you sound like a really nice dude. Do you ever listen to interviews back or anything to see how you came across? And to see what the interviewers said about you afterwards? What do you think of the MMA media and some people's criticisms that it has become a soap opera? With people accusing Ariel Helwani of instigating all the time between fighters, is all this over sensationalising good for the future of the sport? Or is this what all sport has evolved to because of the internet, twitter and blogs etc? I listen to every interview after I have one. I think its important to make sure you make sure you said the things you wanted to. Also some guys are nice when they talk to you and then are rude once your gone. Gives you an idea of who to turn down if you have a scheduling conflict. I don't know what to think. Whatever the most fans want is what the UFC does. I don't agree with everything, but I also didn't invest and create on of the biggest growing sports franchises in the world......so I can think what I want, but it doesn't mean I'm right
Just a follow up, any memorably bad interviews. And Cheers dude for doing the IAMA. Hmmm not really.
Three questions, first, who do you want to fight most in the UFC that you haven't yet? Second, the good old fightclub classic: if you could fight anyone, living or past, who would it be? Third: What's your favorite thing to eat when you're not in a training camp? I dont have any special person I want to fight. Jimmy Carter, and Pho.
Hey Nick...tons of respect to you...i am from India and i want to join the UFC...what are the chances that i can get through? There has been no MMA fighter from India yet...but do you think there could be any scope? And would you be kind enough to tell me the procedure? Its different for every person. I would say that if you are not training with high level guys at a good gym....Your chances are slim to none. If you want to me in the UFC you will have to move or find good training partners and coaches. Good Luck!
Since you trained with Brock do you think he was 100% in his last fight? What are your thoughts on Jones? And which fighter past or present would you like to fight against? Brock is his own dude, I have no idea about his plans or his future. We did not talk really and we only trained at the same time a hand full of times.
Will you ever rage quit an MMA fight? What is one positive and one negative thing about Dana White? No....I dont know Dana well enough to answer that question.
Hey, Nik, thank you for AMA, will be your fan from now on. My answers: What are your favourite MMA mathes? How did you start your MMA training? Which sports are you watching apart from esports? I answered a few of these. I love watching Football and Starcraft. Vikings are my team.
what about rugby or soccer? Sorry if you've already answered it also. You're awesome! They are not really on to much and I'm a noob at both. I like soccer, but the constant flopping kills it for me. Rugby seems cool, but its not on.
Hey Nik Lentz! I want to be a UFC fighter just like you one day, but I would like to know some things so I can prepare for them as I get older! I was wondering what is the camp process like mentally and physically? My other question was what is it like the week before the fight? It is very hard mentally. Especially if you have to travel and get away from your family. Physically it is hard on the body, but you should be smart and train around any kind of injury. Way to many people are getting hurt from over training and bad nutrition. Fight week is all media, mix with a few workouts for making weight.
Do you want to ever fight anderson silva? if so what would your strategy be going into the fight? that guy doesn't seem to really have any weaknesses :/ Jump for a leg lock. Its the only way I have seen him get beat. He is the best fighter in the world atm. I would not want to fight him.
What conditioning do you recommend ? Ie Shins, Jaw, Neck ? I would say just hit thai pads for the shins. Dont get in the head too much for your jaw. Thai pads will condition everything right.
What's your nickname in SC2?? Bonus if we can have your profile page. You're awesome. I dont share my main accounts. I dont want to deal with people spamming me. I just want to play games and forget about fighting.
Hey Nik*, first off congrats on your win against Mitsuoka! That was sick. Second, if you were the champion and your originally scheduled opponent got injured, would you accept a new opponent with 8 days notice? *oops, sorry. Spelled your name wrong. Bet you get that alot, huh? If I was the one who had the full training camp...I would fight a guy on one day notice.
Seems like a lot of people want to talk shit to you from behind the safety of the Internet. Do you play any of the UFC games? If so who do you use? I do not...sorry. I'm not a big fan of sports games. I play things like SF and Tekken.
Would you do a "David and Goliath" style match? If so who would you like to fight? Sure, if I got paid enough I would fight anyone.
Nik: What's your favorite submission or go to submission in a fight??? Guillotine
Yeah, one more question, No-gi, you or Rousey ? No Gi and Me of course, although I might prolong the event ;)
Hey Nik, thanks for this AMA! I'm a recently built guy in good shape, but i know nothing of fighting. Can you give me some basic tips and techniques incase i need to defend myself? Eddie Bravo beginning videos and Greg Nelson clinch series
What's the secret to quickly and effectively dropping 20-30 pounds? Earth grown food in its natural non GMO state.
What color shorts do you wear? What sponsors? Different every fight.
Hey Nik. I'm 15 and started doing MMA at the start of the year. I'm really enjoying it and hope to enter a fight soon. So I am just wondering, any tips on how I could get better and what I should be doing to help out? Take your time. You are really young and do not need to be getting hurt. Dont hurt yourself or mess up your growth into a man. Have fun, Relax, and you will be fine.
How do you feel about your height? How has it affected your career; either positively or negatively. Reach is the more important factor. Reach is a big deal in MMA and I have been at a disadvantage for a long time. One of the main reasons I went down to 145.
Would you ever play in an MLG or IPL in the open bracket if your schedule allowed you to practice? That would be really exciting. Maybe, but I would have to be in really good playing shape and hope I didn't hit any real pros for a while.
What's the hardest you've ever been kicked in the nuts? Watch my fight with Tavares. Broke my steel nut cup and I had stomach problems for a month.
I've been training hard for about 6 months though. I got 2 teachers that help me get to my first fight/tournament in China. Is there any advice you can give me? Try your best, thats all we can do. If you prepared right, everything will turn out well!
Do you have a favourite martial art? I like Eddie bravo's stuff, but thats not really a Martial Art in itself.
Do you think MMA would be better off having fighters fight at their natural weight? For example weighing in the day of the fight. No, It would make it way worse. I think it killed college wrestling.
What do you think about Mvp? Do you think Taeja will live up to the hype? MVP is awesome! I don't know about Taeja. I don't think he has a huge hype. I mean he is a good Korean player on TL which makes him in the spotlight anytime he does anything good. I think he has the talent to do very well.
Favourite mma forum - sherdog or the ug? UG I guess, but I have not been on either in years.
What's your opinion about Fedor? Have you ever competed with Russian guys and how is it for you to fight against sambo wrestler? He is a legend in the sport. Very small for HW, could be a 205 lb fighter or even lighter. I have competed against Russians. I have done fine vs sambo.
Either I'm too lazy to scroll all the way down, or I can't believe someone hasn't asked this, but what league are you in sc2? Lol its in the main post........
Maybe you can settle an argument I had with a friend. Are the less conventional submissions like peruvian necktie, d'arce choke,japanese necktie ect. are used less because they aren't as effective as triangles and armbars or because less guys have trained them enough to attack with them comfortably? Also mayonnaise or miracle whip? At a high level the chokes are used a lot more. I eat veganiese, but organic mayo would be my choice.
Not sure if its too late to ask, but I'll go ahead and do it anyways. Whats the best advice you can give me when it comes to fighting? I started training 4 months ago, and my gym is amazing. I am considering competing in a year. With that said, any advice? Have fun and don't over think it.
If you can take one move from a video game character and incorporate it into your fighting style what move would it be? Blanka Ball
What type of cake do you enjoy the most? Carrot
Does it still hurt when you get punched in the face? Yes.
What are some reasons why I should and shouldn't do MMA? If you have fun doing it.......do it, if not dont.
Calisthenics or weights? Thanks! Both.
Do you think you could take on Aldo? I'm going to a some point and yes.
What is your shoe size? 10.5.
Wow so since its ama i will ask anything, can i come train with you at your next camp? seriously though. No.
Whats the most weight you had to cut for a fight? 30.
Get sponsored by Blizzard! Forget Tapout. Tell them to sponsor me :))))))))
