[PC - RPG/Strategy] League of Legends

Postby Nish on Thu Oct 07, 2010 10:34 am

League of Legends is a DotA (Defence of the Ancients from Warcraft 3) based game, RiotGames wanted to get DotA on a new level!

You might be wondering: Why should I play League of Legends if I can just play DotA?

Our goal when building League of Legends was to evolve DotA beyond the limitations of the Warcraft III Engine and give players a new experience with entirely new content while capturing the familiar feel in an entirely new and expanded game. New features include:

* Automated matchmaking, to make finding a good game easy
* The ability to reconnect to games if you have disconnected
* Completely new and original playable champions
* Client-server network model with no host advantage
* Advanced stat tracking
* Built-in surrender functionality
* In-game interface and controls designed for this style of play
* Account-level progression, adding out-of-game strategic depth and customization, known as the summoner system
* Regular updates with many more features to come!
* An improved mini-map that shows your champion's pathing
* Multiple maps, (Summoner's Rift, Summoner's Rift: Winter, Twisted Treeline, The Proving Grounds)
* Features that make teaching the game to your friends easier, (game tutorial, bots, suggested items)
* And more!

Played it a while ago and I got bored very fast. At the time, there were only two maps and I think (I could be mistaken) they introduced something where you could unlock a certain number of characters but the most powerful ones could only be bought. All of that could have changed by now, though.

It is very fun if you play with friends, and there are some OP champions, but that is if you play it right ^^

Valve announced DoTa 2 for 2011, never really played the WC3 Dota, HoN, LoL etc... but with Valve's one I may just start.

It will all depend on how much Valve will meddle and how much input is taken from the community, icefrog is leader of a development team at Valve, so things should be promising.

TBH if I were to try a DOTA type game I would want something genuine, not a dumbed down pos version Valve will likely come up with. Their track record with popular games with competitive gameplay isn't exactly good imo. They should leave it alone.. I can just see them ruining it by making it too easy/dumbed down

Cool story bro but League of Legends has nothing to do with Valve. It may or may not be available on Steam nowadays but it hasn't been touched by Valve.

Read up a bit and you might see people talking about dota 2 by Valve. Valve is gonna mean weaker gameplay and micro transactions for boosted characters

Not quite, icefrog, who maintains the current WC3 DotA is lead developer in a team under Valve, so like I said, it will depend on how much meddling Valve will do or will they let icefrog do his thing.

So it isn't Valve per se that is developing DotA 2.

I'll believe it when I see fans of the game type playing it. I really don't think Valve could keep their hands off and not mess it up tho

On topic tho i've dl'd League of Legends since its free, gonna give it a try

This annoys me. For the main reason being that Icefrog has helped both Riot and the developer of heroes of newarth to create the 2 games, and now hes going on to valve to create another, If theirs something i know about valve and their sequels, they are fuck ups, and i will definatly choose a free LOL over whatever crap valve release.

4 dota style games is more than enough.

HoN
LoL
original Dota
Demigod

I've played all of them apart from Demi-god... The makers of LoL decided to take out denying creeps because it improved the gameplay flow it's simply means they couldn't balance melee/ranged characters properly. The rune system is also retarded to te point it actually gives you significant enough of advantage to be fully kitted out. Neither HoN nor Dota have any of that. I'm 100% against monetary purchases that strictly improve your character in game for that reason.

play with people the same level as you or on your own and you will be matched with other people who also have runes.
