Today I want to introduce to you one of the crucial successful free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!

League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer On-line Battle Enviornment), which is oriented in direction of the famous Warcraft 3 - Map "Protection of the Ancients".

For individuals who never performed DotA (are there any?) and who do not know the game concept I will explain it in detail:

The start

League of Legends does not put high requirements in your PCs. You want at least:

- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX capable video card, - 750 MB free exhausting disk space, - DSL or comparable

Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on where you live. You can even create an account on US while residing in Europe but you'll expertise increased pings then. I provide you with a link to create an account in my author's bio. Select a name (at all times the toughest half) and a nice image and off you go!

The Champions

There are 2 teams 5 gamers (there are more game modes, but they don't seem to be necessary at first because as a newbie it's best to start with 5vs5 to study the gameplay). Earlier than each match you all select a "champion" who is the character you want to use in battle. Dependant in your private preferendes it may be e.g. an undead mage, an enormous granite golem, a little bit boy driving on a Yeti, a courageous knight and plenty of more.All in all there are greater than eighty (!) totally different champions and every second week one is added.

Each champions has four totally different talents (three regular and one further sturdy, the "Final") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You learn the abilities by leveling up ingame and your max champion stage is eighteen which implies that you have 5 factors in each normal skill and 3 in your ultimate.

You receive expertise for levelling up by:

1. Being close to when enemy minions or neutral monsters are killed by your troops (it is not essential to kill them your self!)

2. killing or assisting to kill enemy champions

At first you typically play whatever you like, later it's helpful to communicate with your teammembers before the match begins so that you've a balanced setup and not 5 champions of the identical kind.

The completely different sorts of champions are roughly:

1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means skill power, they mainly deal magical harm with their talents)

2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Injury, they primarily deal physical injury with their autoattacks)

3. Tanks (They're exhausting to kill and shield their own carries, for example by beautiful or taunting the enemies)

4. Helps (They've both buffs or heals to help their carries and keep them alive)

5. Junglers (They do not begin within the lane but within the jungle and help their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)

The attention-grabbing level is: Depending on the objects you equip in your champions they're typically able to satisfy completely different roles!

To start with you don't have own champions, but each week there are 10 free ones which everybody can use. After some matches you should purchase extra champions with affect factors (IP) in the shop. I will come to this later.

The map

The map has three different lanes, which lead from your individual to the enemy base. On these lanes there are a number of Towers which you need to destroy before you may attack the base itself. As a support your predominant constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves in brief intervals which make it easier to in fights. Between the lanes there may be the "jungle", the place impartial monsters are located. In the event you kill those you receive gold and/or non permanent buffs.

As soon as the match begins everybody has a few minute to spend his beginning capital on gadgets in the shop.

This does not take lengthy since you don't have much gold in the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold within the game:

1. Everybody receives gold over time

2. Killing enemy minions or impartial monsters (here it is very important give them the final blow, the so called "lasthitting")

3. Killing or assisting to kill enemy champions

4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)

5. There are a number of objects which grant you additional earnings (the so known as gold/5 items -> they provide you 1 gold each 5 seconds)

The purpose

In the event you destroy the enemy predominant constructing (Nexus) your staff wins. For being able to assault the Nexus, however, you must destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on no less than one lane and the two towers which defend the Nexus. So it is not the perfect thought to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 should you don't push the lanes at the same time. A mean match takes 30-45 minutes, hardly ever more than an hour. As quickly as the match reaches minute 20 it is usually potential to surrender.

More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") where you have to capture and defend certain points. In addition there are ranked modes for gamers with summoner level 30 (explanation follows) during which you receive an Elo rely depending on your wins and losses. For rookies I extremely advocate the traditional 5vs5 map!

The summoners

league of legends t-shirt shop of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You do not only select a reputation and an image for your self (you're a so known as "summoner", don't combine it up with the "champions") but you are also able to stage up yourself and purchase small buffs with Affect Points (IP).
