[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]

I've tried, but I just can't seem to wrap my head around games like League of Legends or DOTA 2. I understand why they're fun, and I think they're good games, I am just so unbelievably awful at them that I feel like I'll never get anywhere. I just don't have the hundreds of hours of practice required to really get good on them.

A lot of people do, though. Whether it's a fighting game, or StarCraft, or a MOBA, plenty of people devote huge amounts of time into becoming beastly at their game of choice. This week, I want you to tell me about a game you've really trained for and how it managed to suck you in. Tell me about the process of starting out as a scrub, and eventually mastering your game of choice. What exactly did you have to do to really get good at it?

To participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Training: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders, and make sure you look for promoted blogs from last week's topic, Improvement.
