league of legends- the experience

one of the reasons i wanted to give a bit more detail on league of legends is that im competing in a small 3v3 tournament this weekend! ive already won game one and the rest of my games are tonight. Im pretty excited, and while i think im probably going to win but just thought id share. Now its no where near thw WCG level, but considering how bad Asia got stomped in some of those games, maybe it is.


If you enjoyed wc3- or world of warcraft, but dont have the monumental amount time to you have to invest in such a game- maybe this game is for you. Its basically a 20minute mmo. You level up to 18 each game- get gold for killing things, and destroy the other teams base to win, sometimes it lasts up to an hour, but generally its won in under half. One of the things i disliked most about WOW, was the time investment and commitment required- if you werent on every night at the same times for raids, you were either kicked or looked over on loot. With LOL, you play whenever you want because matches are fast- you play with friends and it only requires up to 5 people. If you have a few friends that you just want to play with and cant seem to manage a guild in a mmorpg, i think you would enjoy this game.

But perhaps the best part of this game is how fun it is. Its fast paced and when your doing well you really enjoy the game. it has all the mechanics behind a MMORPG, without all of the time invested grinding and farming.


anyhoozle, hopefully my tourney will go well-

  5. Good luck on the tourney. I'm only a little familiar with the game. Couldn't get too into the game cause of the steep learning curve and generally sucking.

  9. I do wish sometimes they would initiate a level up type of mechanic in LoL/DOTA, but that would easily defeat the purpose of the game T_T

  11. Grats on your victory and hope the rest of the games are victories too :) I would play LoL, but I need not to play another MMO right now :( I like my time, even if it is only in 20 minute bursts.

  24. LoL and HON are some of the best games out IMO - although LoL's free; which is a lot better than paying 30 bucks.
