League of Legends

So, does anyone else play this? I've recently gotten into it, and it's really pretty fun, though the learning curve is a little steep. What Champions do you like using? I've grown fond of Ashe.

Steep learning curve?

The gameplay is overwhelmingly simple. 3 lanes. Blow up turrets. Certain strats involve jungling. Make sure you know every champion's ability, so you can fight accordingly. Slows. CCs. Burst damage. Healing. All traits of MMO pvp are here, but its incredibly simplified. You only get a few abilities, and there are minimal ways to approach any given situation.

I played League for a while. I mained Brand. It was fun, but calling it complex is just...god just no. It isn't.

In addition, the massive IP grind is overwhelming, and with the current rune system in place, there is a huge pay2win problem.

DOTA 2 players will probably tell you that their game is better, but I couldn't really say that myself, because after playing both its pretty clear that at their core, they're identical.

I don't like this game too much. I can't decide whether it's because of the poopty community or the sheer lack of depth.


Maybe it's both.

It's both, I assure you.

The community is easily worse than WoW's community and Runescape's community combined.

I think it has the worst gaming community I've ever seen. In before: "Obviously, you haven't played..."

I like the game though. Although I'm late to respond, I think Silver was referring to the steep learning curve of the meta-game. I'm really bad at the game though, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. I can't get many more than five kills in any kind of game, but I can usually keep my deaths under five.

My favorite/best champions are LeBlanc, Katarina, Morgana, Shyvana, Caitlyn, Tryndamere, and Malphite. Amumu and Kassadin get honorable mentions.

And yes, I know that I play as overpowered/noob characters.
I dunno hao 2 put imgs heer :(

League is quite the fun game to play. I play a wide range of champions, but as of recent I try to play a "Jungler" or "Middle Lane" type champion when possible. The other roles are easy and boring in my opinion. Currently my favorite champions are Lee Sin, Olaf, Ahri, and Evelynn.

I tend to use ranged characters. Ashe, Lux, Ryze, and Twisted Fate mostly.

I JUST started at the request of my three friends (two of which also just started).

I literally haven't even played anyone yet; I just did co-op with a friend against some bots.

It's fun, and I'm pretty shocked at how simple it is. I'm not very good, obviously, but I'm already liking support (I'm usually a support person). The only game we've won so far (the bots on Easy were surprisingly hard) I was playing as that girl that plays the harp-thing, but she's pretty expensive, so I won't be owning her for a while.

Anyone wanna friend me and help me not lose as badly? Name's "Xenreb," and yes, that is an old, super horrible fanficy-sounding Org XIII version of Neerb.

Edit: The Next Day...

I've now played a couple pvp matches using Soraka (?), Kayle/Kalye/angelgirl, and that minotaur they are giving away for free to Youtube subscribers. My team won most matches, but I question how much of that had to do with me.

I don't play that much anymore, but it's still fun.

((I apologize in advance for the necrobump. Just figured it made more sense to bump this since it was still on the first page))

I've been playing on and off since Zyra's release, so not terribly long. I main support champs but I'll dick around in mid or top if people decide to autolock support (which...doesn't happen too much).

As far as difficulty goes, it's more of a challenge to learn which champions counter others and what situational items to build as opposed to the game's basics itself. Can't really make any arguments about DotA2 though since I've yet to touch it (filthycasual4lyfe).
Community-wise, it's almost all asspained manbabies and teenagers, which makes playing with and against pubs painful at best. Holy poop we could just turn this into a "LoL horror stories" thread. Heh.

All and all, I enjoy it a lot more than I'd like to admit, despite knowing its playerbase is dildos and is more of a "babby's first MOBA" game.

I definitely agree with your comment about the community. I've found 3v3 matches generally have somewhat nicer people, but otherwise they're all awful. My friends are who I play with most of the time, because they know what they're doing.

Well, you should 3v3 with me and Magnum. I personally I'm not good at 3v3 as I am 5v5, but I am sure Magnum is.
