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.

You need to love the old 2D game graphics and have the patience to play with certain toxic people. But make friendships that can last a lifetime, use the chat system and form your own team so you avoid playing with ignorant people who are one of the most common things in LoL.

    In the beginning, losing is normal, even I lost about 10 before my first victory, but don't give up because when you learn to play it becomes very fun.

    You will encounter several bug problems, which is normal as no game is perfect. Many champions are fun to play and have a wide range of skills and style. However, Riot spends a lot of time creating new characters, who are not so unique anymore and are not balanced properly. Finally, you will also find very rude people, but the most dangerous thing is that they cry because they didn't kill someone or curse you for thinking you are superior, other than that it is a super fun and great game to spend time.

My first impression was good, in my opinion it has a big potential, the F2PThis game kept me wondering for a while if I liked it or not. 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.

    I'm splitting up my points of this game.

    Community and player base:
    Well, i have played many online games in my life and this game has the most toxic playerbase i have seen in my life. this game is infestet with boting software that ruines the game for other players.

    the game:
    the character is very unbalanced in this game and have bit to strong snowballing effeckt so you can't turn the game around if someone has a good start.

    ARAM mode:
    In this game mode there is zero on skills and all based on what chr you get.

    Software quality:
    This game are infested with bug on every update, and when Riot updates the software then they generate new bugs.

    Not worth the time and effort.

    There are a number of things wrong with this game as someone who has played since almost beta it has even made me want to leave. There is the 100+ champions you need to learn in order to play. There is their toxic community that makes the game intolerable most of the time. They completely rework the game every season requiring tons of time and effort to relearn the game again. Then there is the automated systems they put in to deal with the toxic game that usually ends up putting you in worst queues due to their own server issues.

    I've spent several years playing this game and to anyone thinking about just picking it up now I'd save yourself the time. Unless you're an extreme hardcore gamer who enjoys being trolled constantly and dealing with poor servers and patches. In which case this game is right up your alley!
