How Games Got Me a Best Man
Derek Chen discusses how League of Legends helped heal the wedge driven between him and his best friend because they loved the same woman.
There was a girl. Isn’t there always?
I loved this girl; I loved her more then ANYTHING I had ever loved, and hey, she loved me too. She loved me. But not as much as she loved my best friend.
Eventually she ended up talking to me about it, and I was official in the friend zone. I mean she asked for advice for Christ’s sake.
To add insult onto injury, they decided to try and hide their relationship from our tight knit group of friends. And of course, it didn’t work, and as a result we slowly grew apart; and so did everyone else from my friend. EVERYTHING changed, he started ignoring us, he stopped talking to us, sometimes he was even bitter towards us.
Talk about bro’s before hos amirite?
But, there was one thing that NEVER changed, every afternoon at 6pm, I would go into our skype chatroom and say “ranked game guys, get on.”
Then that magical moment would happen, when he accepted an invite on League of Legends, and we had a good time, just like always. Just then, JUST then, everything would be all right. And eventually, we started talking to each other in real life, not about problems, not about the weather, not about politics. But about games, good ol’ league of fucking legends. And now, I’m typing this a week after my honeymoon, where my good friend was my best man, and where his wife bought me a killer toaster, and we still lose horrifically every day at 6 pm with our favorite characters, in our favorite game, League of Legends.
Thanks Swain, for always being there for me.
