  • @LB_ The fascinating thing here is that the moba problem is much more than he had time to learn for his talk:

    1. There is an insane number of precise details: this increases the thought investment required
    2. There are countless opportunities to do things differently: you can always do something better, or worse
    3. If you fail, you directly contribute to the enemy team: no action has low stakes

    Even if you keep out the rankings, which add additional hatred, it's pretty much mechanically perfect for causing hatred.
