  1. Update! I just sold it to a coworker and they already want me to make another one soon. Got 75$ for it.
  2. Baal I'd say you are a horrible person for suggesting leds but you didn't say rgb leds so it's ok. Lol As far as how much I saved: the ones I was looking at on Amazon were between 70 - 200 bucks for the size I went with. I put about 50-60 bucks into materials, stains, and lacquer. So I saved a good amount there. @MadCast: Epic Here you go @MadCast: Kitty Stark
  3. So my latest venture into woodworking had me building a spice rack for my kitchen as I'm trying to learn to cook. I was going to just buy one off Amazon until I seen how much they are for just the cheap looking wood ones. I thought to myself, "Hey, I have tools and like to build stuff!". Thus began my attempt to make my own. The following is what it looked like at different steps from start to finish. I ended up basing it off the one I was going to buy from Amazon. I still spent less money building it than it would have been to buy the thing. Holy crap they are expensive. The rack I build can hold 21 glass jars of spices measuring 1.75" x 1.75" x 4". This thing was SO much fun to build and it really didn't take much time either. I spent about 4-6 hours a day for 6 days but most of that was time spent waiting for things to dry. The basic box: The basic design: The components after stain/lacquer is applied: And the final product with everything assembled, glued and backboard in place, with a wide shot of my kitchen sink / stove for size comparison:
  4. This week I want to cover "Teamfights" and "Cooldown Tracking". Teamfights can be won or lost by taking a fight when cooldowns are down for a given team. Keep in mind your team's cooldowns before you start trying to force a fight around dragon. This is easy to think about but can be tough to do because you can't always pick your fight.
  5. This week we go back to our 5v5 inhouse games. Focus will be on "vision control (specifically objective control and counter ganking wards)" and with that comes "objective control" which goes hand in hand with warding and counter warding for control. I'll see you all at 9pm EST!

  8. This week we jump into normals as a group of 5 and put into practice this months topics. These topics include: Attitude and better decision making, ----Top Lane---- Pushing out lane when jungle is wanting to do herald or get scuttle control. This gives a bit more safety for the jungler in case the enemy show up to counter. Collapsing in jungle when your jungler wants to invade ----Jungle---- When invading a buff let your laner know so that they can collapse if things go wrong. Its always safer to have backup. Letting your lanes know what you are planning allows them to react faster when things go wrong. Try to time out your objectives with when your lanes are pushing and have priority ----Mid Lane---- Ward enemy jungle paths on a regular basis to help prevent ganks and help keep eyes on the enemy jungler. Its much easier to prevent ganks when you can see where the enemy jungler is. Roam when you push your opponent in ----ADC---- Communicating with your support when to go in / follow up when your support goes in. You are much more effective when you go in together. If you actually talk to each other this happens much more frequently. Don’t greed for tower damage or minions when you are low or alone in lane ----Support---- Get deep vision in the enemy jungle when appropriate / safe. This means not going alone and if you are going alone making sure you probe bushes with abilities and keeping an eye where the enemy is on the mini map. Roam when appropriate / lane is pushed out and your adc is backing A bit of a specific list for this month. I wanted to try out something new in how I presented the topics. I'd appreciate your feedback on the change so if you could stop over at the League of Learning Feedback thread and let me know what you think it would help out a lot.
  9. I know we had me sitting out for the games because we had plenty of people to play but was thinking, maybe we could introduce a special mode where you have 11 people in the game. 5 people per team and a single spectator. If you haven't guessed where this is heading yet, just think of the one time you get the spectator as the mafia. The could jump between rooms like I was doing but instead of not giving away too much we could let the spectator "mislead" people and give false information the other team is reporting. All in all this could add a different aspect to the game by allowing spectators to "play as well". I would limit the amount of spectator involvement unless you want to increase the amount of mafia as well to accommodate. Or we could just talk to CoachRivers about adding a command that lets you manually set the amount of mafia members per game. Lol, I can just see it now. 5v5 and there are 3 mafia per team or something crazy.
  10. This week we are going to, again, try out specific tasks for each lane to focus on. So here we go guys! ---- Top ---- Collapsing in jungle when your jungler wants to invade ---- Jungle ---- Try to time out your objectives with when your lanes are pushing and have priority ---- Mid ---- Roam when you push your opponent in ---- ADC ---- Don’t greed for tower damage or minions when you are low or alone in lane ---- Support ---- Roam when appropriate / lane is pushed out and your adc is backing There are your assignments guys. Come prepared and lets have some fun!
  11. Glad to see you apply Dez. Good luck sir!
