    mobmarkymark's League of Legends (PC)

    [September 17, 2012 03:53:37 PM]
    League of Legends is a free to play and extremely popular MOBA or Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. Sometimes abbreviated as LoL, League of Legends combines some elements of a Real Time Strategy game such as Starcraft with a strong sense of team synergy. The mechanics of League of Legends are as such: the player controls one unit called a champion. The player can point and click around the map to move his or her champion freely. The champion also has a number of skills that can be used in the field of battle. In addition to the player's champion, there are four other champions alongside the player in the most popular game mode "Summoner's Rift." Players are either matched together randomly or can form groups and play with their friends. That is one area where this game shines; League of Legends is a very competitive game where teamwork and synergy are of the utmost importance. When played with four other friends, the game becomes a very skillfull event. This can be confirmed simply from the number of esports tournaments there are that include League of Legends. For example, the most recent League of Legends prize pool was $5 million. The reason I am focusing on this aspect of team synergy as opposed to specific game elements is because it is the aspect that makes or breaks this game. A huge downfall of League of Legends is the bad community. Often, a player will disconnect, refuse to communicate with the team, or rage quit. When an event like this takes place, you might as well go afk. Back to the game itself though: LoL has a pretty large learning curve, but this problem is taken care of by matching players of the same level together. As for the interface, RiotGames did a great job making the game visually appealing and intuitive. Hell, the login screen comes complete with visually stimulating motion graphics that change every few weeks. When you take into consideration that new champions and other cosmetic characteristics are constantly being added to the game along with patches to ensure balanced play, there is no reason not to give this free to play game a chance.
