Negative notes - No LAN function - No VOIPLeague of Legends is a graphically dated game running on a client with a myriad of problems.
- No LAN function
- No VOIP support
- Buggy client
- Locked content (champions have to be paid for grinded for)
- Lack of an in-game spectator function
- Lack of proper game replays support
- Generally toxic player base (A LoL player has been jailed due to actions in-game)
- Server problems
- It proved that free to play can work
- The game can run on older machines
Although it claims to be "free", players are forced to either grind or pay up to unlock content needed to have a complete experience.
My final recommendation?
LoL is not worth the time and money when there are more well-polished alternatives that are truly free to play like Valve's Dota 2.… Expand

Dota 2 is the result of almost a decade's worth of dedication from various Warcraft 3 map makers and the collaboration with an award-winning game studio that can release the game to the masses.
Even without any advertising, the game has attracted millions of players globally and is played as a sport with millions of dollars in prize money annually.
Dota 2 is a well-polished game and most people are surprised that it's... FREE!
Definitely worth a try.… Expand
