League of Legends: A Worthy Time Waster Or Craptastic Voyage Of Crap?


Does this face look like the face of someone who eats souls?  Yes.  Yes it does.

Does this look like the face of an eater of souls? Yes. Yes it does.

For the past month or so, I have been BETA testing a free online game called League of Legends.  If you’ve played Warcraft 3, you can play this.  It’s an almost carbon copy of the Defense of the Ancients (DotA) multiplayer map.

In the game you take the role of a summoner whose rune book and spells help your chosen champion generally rape other people on the map.  As you destroy the opposing team’s minions (little pain in the ass creeps) you inch your way closer to their relic which must be destroyed to win.  All the while dodging the infamous towers of death.  Generally you want to avoid getting hit by these more than once, they will kill you a lot.  Attrition is the name of the game here.

Life as an unstoppable undead is so lonely...

Champions.  There are a whole bunch of them.  I’m not going to bore you with the details over which ones are the best, but I will say this:  the cuter they are, the more they eat faces.  Beautiful dichotomy.  Try them all, eventually you’ll get to a couple you like.

The rune system is actually pretty cool.  You get 3 presets to customize as you see fit in order to power up your favorite champion.  These runes will boost your champion’s stats.  From attack speed to mana to health regen, its all good.

The only thing I have a gripe about, is the community.  From my experience, it blows.  A good 60% of the players have L337 syndrome, 30% don’t talk and don’t know how to play, and the other 10% are like me:  team players that are decent enough to get by and kill the 60% that are pissing you off.  Most of the time.

If you want to check it out, hey the damn thing’s free, you don’t lose a dime.  And you can play a quick game here and there and still get your money’s worth…  Yeah, I’m gonna go with that.

Look me up, by summoner name is 5yphon and if you want a free BETA key let me know, I can hook you up.

Discuss.

    You should try Heroes of Newerth. It’s also based on DotA but its a lot better than league of legends. I think its still in closed beta but getting an invite isn’t really hard (especially because it will be in the open beta very soon)
