Today I wish to introduce to you some of the successful free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!
League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer Online Battle Enviornment), which is oriented towards the well-known Warcraft 3 - Map "Defense of the Ancients".
For many who never performed DotA (are there any?) and who don't know the game concept I'll explain it in detail:
League of Legends doesn't put excessive necessities on your PCs. You need at the very least:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.zero capable video card, - 750 MB free hard disk house, - DSL or similar
Create an account either on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on where you live. You can even create an account on US while living in Europe however you will experience increased pings then. I provide you with a hyperlink to create an account in my writer's bio. Choose a reputation (all the time the hardest part) and a nice image and off you go!
There are 2 groups 5 gamers (there are extra game modes, however they don't seem to be essential at first because as a newbie you should begin with 5vs5 to study the gameplay). Before each match you all choose a "champion" who's the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant on your private preferendes it can be e.g. an undead mage, a giant granite golem, somewhat boy riding on a Yeti, a courageous knight and many more.All in all there are greater than 80 (!) completely different champions and each second week one is added.
Each champions has 4 different talents (3 normal and one further robust, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You study the abilities by leveling up ingame and your max champion degree is 18 which suggests that you've 5 factors in every normal potential and three in your ultimate.
You obtain expertise for levelling up by:
1. Being close to when enemy minions or impartial monsters are killed by your troops (it isn't necessary to kill them yourself!)
2. killing or assisting to kill enemy champions
In the beginning you typically play whatever you want, later it is helpful to communicate together with your teammembers earlier than the match begins so that you've got a balanced setup and not 5 champions of the same kind.
The totally different kinds of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means means power, they primarily deal magical injury with their skills)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Harm, they primarily deal physical harm with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They are onerous to kill and shield their own carries, for instance by beautiful or taunting the enemies)
4. Supports (They have both buffs or heals to help their carries and maintain them alive)
5. Junglers (They do not start in the lane however within the jungle and support their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The fascinating level is: Depending on the gadgets you equip on your champions they are usually able to meet different roles!
At first you don't have personal champions, but every week there are 10 free ones which everyone can use. After some matches you should buy extra champions with influence points (IP) within the shop. I will come to this later.
The map has three totally different lanes, which lead from your own to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you will need to destroy before you'll be able to attack the base itself. As a support your major building ("Nexus") spawns minion waves in brief intervals which enable you to in fights. Between the lanes there is the "jungle", the place neutral monsters are located. If you kill these you obtain gold and/or momentary buffs.
As quickly because the match begins everyone has a few minute to spend his starting capital on objects in the shop.
This does not take long since you don't have much gold within the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold in the game:
1. Everyone receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or neutral monsters (right here it is very important give them the final blow, the so called "lasthitting")
3. Killing or aiding to kill enemy champions
4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)
5. There are several gadgets which grant you additional income (the so referred to as gold/5 objects -> they offer you 1 gold each 5 seconds)
For those who destroy the enemy most important building (Nexus) your workforce wins. For being able to attack the Nexus, nevertheless, you have to destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on at the very least one lane and the 2 towers which protect the Nexus. So it isn't the most effective idea to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 when you do not push the lanes on the same time. An average match takes 30-forty five minutes, not often more than an hour. As quickly as the match reaches minute 20 it's also potential to surrender.
Extra game modes are a 3vs3 and a pretty new domination map ("Dominion") the place it's important to capture and defend certain points. In addition there are ranked modes for players with summoner degree 30 (rationalization follows) during which you obtain an Elo count depending in your wins and losses. For novices I highly advocate the traditional 5vs5 map!

of Legends also has an RPG part. You do not only choose a name and an image for your self (you are a so called "summoner", don't combine it up with the "champions") however you're additionally able to level up yourself and buy small buffs with Affect Factors (IP).
