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.

    So why are you reading this??? Go and play this game, it's fun, free and addicting, what more would you want from a game (except maybe a community that's the worst in all of gaming).

    Best Moba game ever made.
    Cons: bad client (crushes often on some PCs), not a friendly community if you are bad they will let you know that but you can mute in-game chat so it's ok.
    Pros: lots of new champs every month, lots of streamers you can watch and learn, free 2 play, most played game in the world, they make a lot of interesting changes every season.

    One of the worst experience I had on videogames.
    I Have played this game since S2 , and with the time the game is just getting worse.
    The community is toxic, no matter what you do or what they do, they flame everything. mostly of them have no Idea of playing the game or know the metagame but the flame.
    the servers are absolute garbage, the client , even worse, 90's games have better graphics, clients and servers than this ''game''.
    Unbalanced. Well, at first you think that all champions have strenghts, but with the time you realize that there are just 3 champions on every role that outperforms the entire champion pool and are totally broken, a bad player with an extremely op champ can easy win against an average player with a mediocre champ.

    The game is just fun when leveling and learning or playing with friends, when you try to play seriously and meet the community in rankeds and realize that the game is just bad, the gaming experience becomes horrible.

    I've played League for about three years now, I truly liked it at first but recently, it just grew more awful. Despite their major graphicalI've played League for about three years now, I truly liked it at first but recently, it just grew more awful. Despite their major graphical improvements to the game, the game along with the client still has a load of bugs eating at me. The game's community is probably one of the worst, if not, the worst. Teammates constantly gnawing at you for not following them or trolling your games by giving themselves away to the enemy, and when, by normal human nature, you start getting angry, the company will punish you instead of the ones doing the wrong doings. I once even got permanently banned for doing absolutely nothing, I didn't even trash talk to other players the previous games or the previous day.
    The reward system has also become really terrible. When loot boxes were first released, I was actually really excited because of the free skins, but now it seems they're giving more champion shards than skins, which just feels so disappointing.
    Then you have the matching system, which is also fairly horrible as it pairs you up with teammates who are either relatively new to the game, or not good at it, then it proceeds to match you with enemies who are so much more experienced then you and your teammates which they will abuse a lot, leaving us at a huge disadvantage.
    I honestly came to hate this game that I once like. A zero from me. I hate Riot Games.

Don't even waste your money buying something in their online store. This game is a business and was made to make money on stupid people be smarter. Their servers are always down or lagging, they have maintenance modes every week when ranked or normal modes disabled. This is just disgusting. If your client will stop working and you will reconnect after 5 minutes they will kick you automatically and you need to reconnect again! and then the next game you must wait 5 minutes to start a game. This is a business not a game. I have less pleasure playing this game and more stress. Just disgusting. Expand
