Video games and watching people play video games in videos that I've watched several times before are the only thing getting me through this year right now. What types of games do you play?

I mostly play league lol.

Recently I've been watching the spring championships (finals were last weekend) and nemesis's twitch stream (a pro player).

Oh nice, League seems like a good way to pass the time. A lot of my friends play it, and while they don't claim to have fun with it, they seem to like it

Yeah. Getting back into brood war during the pandemic has been fun. Been playing in some tournaments & stuff, good community around it.

Are there still many players?

Warcraft 3 was my first real video game and it was really cool, and I think there still is a dedicated community too.

Yeah, generally get a game on ladder in under a minute. The remastered came out a few years ago which revitalized it. There's still a pro scene in Korea, it's still around top 3 esport there. The non-Korean scene has a surprising amount going on too, but it's smaller, more grassroots. There's a great league for new players that's pretty active, which is why I got back into it.

Warcraft 3 has a scene but they got totally fucked by the remaster. Blizzard just didn't finish it, they don't even have an official ladder.
