League Of Legends


So, I'm not sure if you're aware of the game "League Of Legends" or not. I for one think it is a great game and if you want to try it head over to the website. Basically what you do is either 5v5 or 3v3 and you have a "Nexus" and 3 lanes, you have to fight enemies to stop them from getting to your Nexus but at the same time push in their lanes to destroy their Nexus. It is free which is great. But there is of course that option to pay. Not for a subscription or anything but to pay for microtransactions. Where they give you a currency called "Riot Points" or "RP" and with this you can buy champions to play in the game. Some of you might think "Wow so they do this so they get money and people just buy power." Well not exactly, for playing games you get a different kind of currency called "Influence Points" "IP" and what this allows you to do is save up to buy champions that you want. (RP is obviously the faster way to do it.) You get about 100 IP a game and a Tier 1 champion cost 6300 IP. You can buy 1380 RP for $10, and a Tier 1 champion costs 900and some odd RP. Also available for RP only are skins for the characters, which are essentially costumes. This game also allows a lot of youtubers to put their "creatism"out there and make quality (or maybe not so much) content. For one example there is a youtuber by the name of "Videogamedunkey and he's just hilarious. Check out an example of his videos up a bit more.

    1. I didn't get much into DotA. I am in the DotA2 Beta and from being babied in LoL it was too complicated for me and I quit relatively fast. One day I'm going to go in and learn it. I also do not like the art style as much as I like the art of LoL. These are all personal opinions, as I do not like DotA that well I'm sure it's a great game and it revolutionized the genre.

    1. It's free to play with the microtransactions that he mentioned.
      Everything in the game besides skins (simply cosmetic) can be unlocked simply by playing it and getting the in game currency.
