I love how Dwan is making a play worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and Gus Hanson is right next to him staring at his phone. Maybe he was live tweeting the action or something.

The games looked very intense and very fun. Can't wait.

+Matt Medeiros No. It's not really like it at all. People see an isometric camera and automatically associate it with LoL. Its a common misconception that is perfectly understandable. The game stresses team fight mechanics, communication, coordination, and individual game sense rather than base mechanical skill (i.e last hitting creeps perfectly, knowing ward timers, etc). And honestly, from what I played at blizzcon this year, I thought the game was ready for open beta. The game seemed close to optimization for the systems that we were playing on, there were no FPS drops or clipping of any kind. And the actual game felt fluid, it felt better than anything i had played in the ARTS genre before. I could honestly see this game getting pretty big in the future, maybe it might be able to contest DotA and LoL (as personally I think LoL is getting worse and worse every patch since season 2).

IMO, Nintendo launched the WiiU without 1st party support on purpose. They wanted to be able to launch those games 1 year later (now) when the new XBox and PS4 come out. They took a gamble that the 3rd parties would launch good games and the 3rd parties left them hanging.

So now 1 year later, they are launching those 1st party titles during the holiday season, and I think their console/games lines up very well with the XBox and PS4. As older folks, we are biased toward the more "mature" consoles, but I think parents will be buying WiiU's and Nintendo games for their kids this holiday season.

If Nintendo sells a bunch of consoles this holiday, they will draw the 3rd party back because of their install base.

I've been doing a lot of thinking about hosted WordPress verticals. Something like HappyTables.com could be relatively easily created with WordPress + Paid Memberships Pro + plus custom themes and plugins for your vertical. We've helped to build a few of them.

So we're considering getting into that game. We could build a Hosted Wine Blog service on the back of WineLog.net. We could build a Hosted Membership Site vertical.

Some of the thinking around this goes like this:

1. I'm going to offer a WordPress site on managed hosting (via a third party like WP-Engine) PLUS themes, plugins, and custom configuration for this vertical.

2. And I'm going to be able to charge... about the same that WP-Engine charges: $29/mo, $99/mo, $299+/mo depending on the size of site.

So the question becomes: How can I make a profit off my vertical which has all this extra stuff on top of a managed host. Wouldn't I have at least as much marketing and support costs (relatively) as a managed host? So after I give them their cut, what is left for me? Is there anything left for me?

Possible answers are:

* The hosting companies are making stupidly huge margins and I can take a cut.
* Support for a niche may be easier than support for general WP sites. Wine Bloggers will have a smaller subset of issues than any kind of blog or site possible.
* You can't. You need to charge more or find a new business to start.

An example of a value that we provide (but um, haven't yet TOLD our members about. ugh) that is SO basic to all of us but that is HUGE to them: When the Boston bombing happened, the Boston PD and Crime Stoppers programs there took about 10 hours to get a dedicated website up for tips and updates related to the bombing - and they were fast for a police department. You know as well as I do that I have the ability to flip a website in less than five minutes, maybe 15 if we count the time to register to the TLD. Now, that's JUST hosting. But for our members, it's much more that. It's emergency communication hubs.

Obviously that's a different selling point than the wine industry, BUT, in every niche there is something like that.

Sylvanas play in game 2. I would have true silvered Sylvanas, played token, played 2/3 raider, then rifled Sylvanas. Gave them only 1/4 chance at ogre. Might have played raider first though to make sure you have a 6 power minion to deal with ogre if he gets it. Def kill the Sylvanas on you turn and terms I think. Luckily opponent misplayed anyway.

The other tip that helped me with Sivir in ARAM is to use her q and w to clear the enemy minion wave as much as possible. Later on you can effectively one shot the enemy minions, which turns the game into a 6v5 of sorts.

When you are complaining about your teammates, remember that you can ping and chat to them. I know it's probably hard to multitask that when casting. You're pretty smart in lol imo and you can help them.
