"League Of Legends - Free to play"

I'll start off with saying one of the great advantages of the game, it's free to play! You can access this game for free by downloading it directly off of their website The free game only differs from those that are paying in that you are limited in champion choice at the start of the game. However, as you progress, you will be able to unlock more and more champions using in-game points that are earned simply from completing a game. In addition to this, each week there are 10 free champions available for use. This weekly rotation means that there are constantly different champions for free players to use.

For those of you that are fans of Warcraft 3 - Defence of the Ancients mod, you'll be familiar with the gameplay and can get stuck in straight away. However for those completely new, this game offers a quick and easy tutorial which teaches players the basics. You are then able to play customer practice games with non-player controlled champions. However, this are not programmed well and compared to a real game against actual players, are very easy to beat.

The game is in constant development and a new patch is released roughly every week with new content such as champions and bug fixes. However, Riot Games (LoL developers) are slightly unproffesional when it comes to taking the servers down for patching/maintainence. Servers will usually be taken down without 24-hours notice to the players, with notifications only being given on the forum a few hours prior to server being taken down. In addition to this, with each patch release, there are often problems which cause account or server problems which lead to more server down time. However, Riot are slowly becoming more professional and giving more notices and warnings for when the servers go down and they are trying to keep players up to date in real-time.

Overall, I would recommend giving this game a go if you are into RPGs such as DotA or Diablo.

    i definitely agree on some points, but it would be better to explain your experience about the gameplay.

    One thing I should mention is that the only thing that does require money is different skins for champions. But if you're ok with using the same classic skin then its all good.
