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] Expand

    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.

However, the community is horrible and the client is hopelessly outdated.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

My first impression was good, in my opinion it has a big potential, the F2P model applied here is simply one of the best I've seen in a game. The game itself is fun, even in it's repetitiveness. There's so much content in here to keep you around for days.
    I played it for quite a long time but finally I ended up hating it. Now it makes me sad to say that I really hate this game. I do not think it is the game itself that is not good, I do not believe it. It's the community and the way it is managed that is horrendous. Players are just bad people. When I quit playing I decided this game just takes out the worst of everyone who plays it. And that is sad, 'cause the game was sometimes funny.

    The game itself, nontheless, has some really big defects that I just cannot explain to me:
    - why keep playing in just two or three maps? Why can't we have some more choice about the battlefield? We have so many heroes to choose between, why do we have just a single map to play a certain game mode? Do not tell me this is the MOBA style, because it seems to me it's just an excuse to develop less game content...
    - why developing the ingame chat? What's the use of it, apart from insulting team mates and distracting from game action?
    - what's the meaning of the really overabused surrender option? Why is there?

    I just cannot understand these aspects of the game and I think they just make the game bad.

    My final response: if you're a kid that cannot stand a defeat in a win/lose game and you enjoy insulting everyone who plays with you, this game is just for you. Enjoy.

    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

    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 ****
