On The Couch - Podcast Series
« on: October 13, 2014, 08:59:38 am »
Battle, Oni and I will be hosting a new podcast series with Joe as our resident streamer. It is named after a steam group I started with a former team-mate almost 4 years ago, and the series will focus on delving deep into the psychology that courses through L4D2 and the competitive community. We thought it would be an interesting thing to do because psychology plays a huge part in the competitive community and also how players and teams perform, yet not many people are fully aware of the scale of its impact and while e-sports psychology might be something that is mentioned for more popular competitive games, there's almost no official documentation on the subject that can be directly applied to L4D. We intend to shed light on the topic and have got plenty of content to impart as the series continues onward.

We cannot say for certain exactly when the podcasts will take place as it will depend on whenever the four of us are free at the same time as each other, but they will be announced here when they are scheduled to take place. The nature of the podcasts will be about discussing certain topics within the psychology of L4D, interviews with guests, and we've even talked about the possibility of having a few 'talk show-style' episodes where there are two guests/parties discussing/debating whatever it is they either support/contradict each other on, as long as it's something that highlights the psychology at work in L4D. Sometimes we will have guests and other times we will not, that will depend a lot on who volunteers or who would be a suitable guest to discuss the chosen topic as we build up to it. For those that aren't sure about what we'll be talking about, it will be things like how psychological state can impact a player's performance, discussing positive elements such as a harmonial team atmosphere, strong leadership and good rapport among the team, as well as negative elements such as disharmony, raging and complacency being just a few of many examples of both sides of the spectrum.

Stay tuned for more information.

I like this. I actually have some good input I could give on some of the psychological aspects of L4D. Hit me up if you would like me as a guest/contributor.

This sounds really good, maybe you can also have Killatoy talk about the effect of mountain dew and doritos on the average l4d2 player or the blessing of Tom Cruise and its magical effects.

Our broadcaster Joe had to set back the broadcast, so we're hoping to go live at 6 pm EST. I will post an update if anything changes between now and then. Apologies for the delay.
