As we speak I would like to introduce to you one 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 On-line Battle Enviornment), which is oriented in the direction of the well-known Warcraft 3 - Map "Protection of the Ancients".
For individuals who by no means performed DotA (are there any?) and who don't know the game idea I will clarify it in detail:
League of Legends would not put excessive requirements in your PCs. You want at the least:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 capable video card, - 750 MB free hard disk area, - DSL or related
Create an account either on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on where you live. You can also create an account on US whereas dwelling in Europe but you will experience larger pings then. I offer you a hyperlink to create an account in my author's bio. Select a name (at all times the hardest half) and a nice image and off you go!
There are 2 teams 5 gamers (there are more game modes, however they aren't important in the beginning because as a newbie you must start with 5vs5 to be taught the gameplay). Earlier than each match you all select a "champion" who is the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant on your private preferendes it can be e.g. an undead mage, a large granite golem, a little bit boy driving on a Yeti, a courageous knight and lots of more.All in all there are more than 80 (!) completely different champions and every second week one is added.
Each champions has 4 different abilities (three regular and one further strong, the "Final") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You study the talents by leveling up ingame and your max champion degree is eighteen which implies that you've 5 points in every normal means and 3 in your ultimate.
You receive experience for levelling up by:
1. Being close to when enemy minions or impartial monsters are killed by your troops (it is not essential to kill them yourself!)
2. killing or assisting to kill enemy champions
At first you usually play no matter you like, later it is helpful to communicate together with your teammembers before the match begins so that you have a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the same kind.
The totally different sorts of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means potential energy, they mainly deal magical injury with their talents)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Injury, they mainly deal physical injury with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They are onerous to kill and shield their very own carries, for instance by beautiful or taunting the enemies)
4. Supports (They have both buffs or heals to assist their carries and keep them alive)
5. Junglers (They don't start in the lane however in the jungle and assist their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The fascinating level is: Depending on the objects you equip on your champions they're usually able to fulfill totally different roles!
At first you don't have personal champions, however every week there are 10 free ones which everyone can use. After some matches you should purchase extra champions with influence points (IP) within the shop. I'll come to this later.
The map has 3 totally different lanes, which lead from your individual to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you will need to destroy before you may assault the base itself. As a assist your important building ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which help you in fights. Between the lanes there is the "jungle", where neutral monsters are located. In case you kill those you obtain gold and/or momentary buffs.
As quickly as the match begins everybody has a couple of minute to spend his starting capital on gadgets in the shop.
This doesn't take long since you don't have much gold in the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold in the game:
1. Everybody receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or impartial monsters (here it is very important give them the ultimate 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 several gadgets which grant you further income (the so called gold/5 items -> they give you 1 gold every 5 seconds)
If you destroy the enemy foremost building (Nexus) your team wins. For being able to assault the Nexus, however, you must destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on at the least one lane and the two towers which shield the Nexus. So it is not the perfect thought to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 in case you don't push the lanes at the identical time. A median match takes 30-forty five minutes, not often greater than an hour. As quickly because the match reaches minute 20 it is also doable to surrender.
Extra game modes are a 3vs3 and a fairly new domination map ("Dominion") where it's important to seize and defend sure points. As well as there are ranked modes for players with summoner degree 30 (explanation follows) by which you obtain an Elo count relying on your wins and losses. For beginners I extremely recommend the conventional 5vs5 map!

of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You don't solely choose a name and a picture for yourself (you are a so referred to as "summoner", don't combine it up with the "champions") however you are additionally able to stage up yourself and buy small buffs with Affect Factors (IP).
