League of Legends (it's FREE! and awesome)

LoL is currently my favorite game

here's the FREE download page:
https://signup.leagueoflegends.com/signup/verify

if you already have an account you can redownload the client here:
http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/download

champions info:
http://www.leaguecraft.com/champions

official forum:
http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...isplay.php?f=2

more info:
- 5v5 or 3v3 matches; new gameplay modes and maps on the way. I play 5v5
- normal 5v5 matches last about 25-55 min. low skill level matches tend to last longer. 3v3 matches are much shorter, but i'm not sure how long; i don't play 3v3 much at all (but i hear it's fun!).
- currently there are like 53 characters to choose from, but at first you can only play 10 of them (the free ones are rotated).
- the goal is to destroy the other team's base node (called a nexus)
- you can unlock new characters by using in-game points, or cash if you're in a hurry chars cost $3-$10.
- the extra character skins cost cash, and are pretty expensive; like $3-$15 each.
- there are sales all the time on chars/skins

i know there was another thread, but the link was broken, and there wasn't much info, and the word FREE was nowhere to be found. I pretty much stopped playing TF2 now, this game is much better IMO.

if you want to buy the game I suggest you start with this for $20 (target has it too):
http://www.amazon.com/League-Legends-Pc/dp/B002HOIPCW
The digital pack has more stuff (such as the annie goth skin), but it's $30.

Anyway, it's free, so go nuts!

Actually, you could purchase just about everything in their store via playing and earning points. You'd never have to spend a dime.

You just compared a FPS to a RTS hybrid-arena-rpg-thingie.


Anyway, if someone is going to play this type of genre for free, then yes LoL is a great choice. But if someone wants to make a purchase, then go with Heroes of Newerth--more balanced, better interface, one time price with no micro stuff later.

Exactly, you 'could' but that would be much harder than simply buying everything.

If you like the gameplay of HoN more than LoL, that is perfectly fine. But to say it's more balanced and has a better interface -- that's just speaking from your ass.
