March Madness for Gamers

We view March Madness like we view exclusive titles coming out for consoles we don’t play: we only peripherally pay attention. Well, most of us. I’m in the minority here as I’m a basketball junky and unabashedly into March Madness. I mean, c’mon, even the moniker is catchy.

St. Louis hosts a Regional setting called Arch Madness. Again, I mean, c’mon, how do I not pay attention?

March Madness is here. We’re less than a week away from the first game, and the first weekend of March Madness is pure euphoria. There’s unbelievable upsets. There’s shots that go in from half-court that swing a bracket. There’s fans that can only put their head in their hands and their lips on their beer. I get it.

So let’s get down to it. March Madness is for gamers. At LFGdating, there is no better real life equivalent of RNG than March Madness. No better time in a young person’s life when RNG changes careers. It’s the ultimate make or miss scenario.

We’re used to that, right? Classic WoW (and it’s predecessors – every great expansion before that) PvP is all about RNG. Think back to original arena: 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5. A lock’s Fear missing could swing the battle. A rogue’s missed Cheap Shot could spell doom.

May all your hits be crits was a motto that lasted for years. Years.

If you’re not into March Madness, turn it on. Watch the ends of games. Take in how painful a miss is for the losing team. Take in how joyful a last second made shot is for the winning team. Take in the real life RNG.

And if you’re brave enough to fill out a bracket, then may all your hits be crits. Or better said, may all your Final 4 picks be locks. It doesn’t rhyme as well, but you get the idea.
