Going to be serious here. Why can't you glance at the minimap like most people do?
Not trying to be rude but nobody can focus on laning and watching the minimap at the same time. You just have to be able to look down at it for a second every couple seconds until you can instantly recognize whats going on.
I can... It just takes me awhile to sort out the minimap (I have problems with maps in general) and get back to what I was doing and there's just no time for that kind of stuff in LoL... or WoW... which is why I get lost in the latter.
I'm the Rubik's cube of the human genome. XBLAGT: RKade8583 Feel free to add me but say where you're from in the message, please.
When you are finding a game, click on Co Op vs Ai. There, now you have solved your problem. You no longer need to pay attention to the map or chat, and you aren't ruining the players games that actually can play it.
