It is now! This is the first year the master's course is running, and there's been an undegrad course going for 2 years.
: I'm not willing to go into such a program but I can tell you how my moods often affect my gameplay. When I'm angry I often do really bad, I got no patience and that's mostly why I get my ass kicked. I also can't always keep my cool in chat if someone gets toxic. Second worst mood for lol is deep anxiety. Low level of anxiety might actually help the performance but when it goes too deep I can't focus well, cause, well anxiety. I don't get angry with people but I don't encourage them either. It's like I feel empty. Not a nice mood at all. Then to good moods for LoL: empathy. When I'm in empathic mood I do really well, mostly cause I am very patient and I give my all for the game, and am friendly to all people. The other good one for performance is neutral/happy. I'm able to focus without things bothering me much and can focus well even after lost games.
Most of what you've said is what I'd expect. The anxiety helping when it's just a small amount is really interesting. Do you think it's because you're less likely to flame or perhaps more likely to stay safe?
: Personality and moods definitely affect performance. I can say that from personal experience, especially with this game.
Yeah man. In the future I would definitley like to look at how mood affects performance by perhaps looking at a few players in depth over a period of time.
