League of Legends combines elements from both strategy and role playing games to bring you a unique and dynamic player experience. As a Summoner, you will have your own distinct, customizable avatar that grows in power as you move through the game. In each battle you will select and call forth one of dozens of Champions to control and engage in head-to-head combat against teams of highly trained warriors. Choose your allies wisely, for the stakes are high. In the League, every battle means more than life or death as the balance of power shifts with each victory or defeat. [Riot Games] Collapse

    The biggest change to the formula, however, is the persistence of your player as a "Summoner," not to be confused with the 30-odd in-game characters, which get a clean slate at the start of every match.
  2. There are always some people online you can fight with! If you liked the mod GOTA for Warcraft III, you will definitely love this game!
  3. LoL is a great, free alternative to DotA that caters both to newbies, and the hardcore.
  4. Warcraft's mod DotA revives in this free to play mix between a strategy and a role playing game. Worth a try.

    The best game of its kind I've played. If nothing else, it definitely takes careful measures to ease in new players (meaning the non-Defense of the Ancients elite).

    Less adventurous heroes might be scared off, but if more is merrier, LoL is perfect for your advanced tower defending fix. [Christmas 2009, p.112]

    Overall, League of Legends holds a lot of promise, but comes up short as a retail product.

The graphics are a bit low poly, but when 10 people are fighting each other onscreen at once with lots of particle effects you don't want to be chug because of the trees, terrain, or mobs being too high res.

    The game runs very smooth and that's what counts with a PvP game or a MOBA.

    There are tons of champions to choose from and half the fun is learning all of them. I highly recommend this one.

    It's a great game , no need to pay to win. Always updates , champions and championships.
    Only thing is paid skins to beautify the champions .

    All F2P games should follow the model of the League of Legends

However, the community is horrible and the client is hopelessly outdated. Each game lasts quite long and is very monotonous however. It's hard to play more than 1 or 2 games in a row. Expand

    - Bad graphics (it even uses cel-shading)
    - It has simplified mechanics, making it very easy to win (or to lose)
    - Most of the 'champions' are direct copies of DotA characters.
    - You have to earn in-game money to buy characters, you can earn enough of that money playing (and winning) A LOT of matches. Or you can simply buy them with real money.
    - You can also buy runes, which are used to build your character. This makes the player win a match with no skill at all.
    Sorry for my english, but I hope you can understand that this game is

    The game - decent, but not great
    The community - Completely Toxic. When you are new, or just don't play often, the other players will jump on you, telling you that "You suck" "OMG FEEDING NOOB", etc. There is no team play, only blaming. The only way you can possibly enjoy the game is to play it hours and hours. But by the time you get good, the community will turn you into an ****
