League of Legends: People still play this game!
I'm surprised there's no thread for League of Legends yet! It's a MOBA much like Heroes of Newerth, only the team behind it has some different views on game design/philosophy which make it a completely different game even though it follows in the DotA tradition. The game itself is free to play, with a revolving cast of 10 heroes (called Champions in LoL) that are freely available each week and the option to grind "Influence Points" (IP) to unlock champions at varying costs.
Player accounts have their own persistant level-up system, with each level unlocking a new rune slot as well as mastery point, runes must be purchased with IP while the mastery trees are available provided you have free points. At the summoner level cap of 30, these represent about 1/3rd of your power as a character in the game, although skill generally trumps stats.
Feel free to add me! My main account is garianse, and my smurfs are gariandk and flashfrozen if you want to roll normals without inflating your rating if you're just starting out.
Garian: garianse, gariandk, flash frozen
eternal Zero: seizero, Final Sparkle
Kitty: Wozza the Walrus, Tonkatsu the Pig
Zircon: cubic zirconium
Sir Nuts: Cagonaso
I got a few friends who tried to get me to play, but for some reason I cant get past the start up screen the "Play" button is grayed out.
That's really weird :\ Sorry that you haven't had a chance to play. Have you tried contacting their support? I haven't had much luck with them but maybe they've gotten better since last year when I emailed them.
The servers seem to be really out of whack tonight though so I'm probably not going to get any more games tonight, but here's hoping!
Just finished some matches myself. For a free to play game I think its a pretty well made game. The mechanics work well and there are some really fun champions to play.
My in game name is Hoser101 (though looking in to getting it changed). I generally have a premade group with 4 other friends I know in real life, but I'm sure I'd be down for a game with any OCR goers out there at some point.
As far as champions go, here's the ones I've played the most in order of preference:
I've dabbled in other champions (and have a bunch unlocked), but rarely will I play someone outside of these 4. At least I've got 'em unlocked if I ever do get bored though.
me and my buddies are hopelessly addicted to this game. I'm considering buying the retail bundle to get all the little extras. I've certainly played the game more than 20 bucks worth, but yeah.
Also, the last Penny Arcade comic talked about LoL. It was pretty funny because it was 100% true. haha.
I've spent 200 dollars on it, so it's more than 10% true!
edit: oops, I see that you said 100% now!
Yeah I'll admit I've bought a few skins (And a big champion bundle). Worth it IMO, I play the game enough to feel like I should support the developers with my moneyz.
I have an US acc but I switched to EU because of latency.
I have spent at least 30$ on the game.
It's very fun some times, definitely worth a try.
Miss Fortune has some tig ol bitties.
Most females in LoL do. But that might change soon, not every new female champ has d+ cups anymore.
