Well it seems we're getting a bit of a following for League of Legends here at CAG.

For those who do not know, League of Legends (LOL) is a FREE online game similar to the Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne mod "Defense of the Ancients". The game has over 60 champions to choose from, each one having their own skills and uses.

Link to download: League of Legends (yes I get credit for this);)

Here is a link to the official New User Guide for League of Legends: New User Guide

It's a lot of fun but it can also be frustrating to find a good team to play with. So I'm adding a list of all the CAGers names, LOL names, and Xfire names. I've added everyone who posted their LOL name on this board (sorry if I missed some), but I did NOT add anyone who said they play but did not list their LOL name.

THIS THREAD IS NOW A WIKI, YOU CAN NOW ADD YOUR NAMES TO THE LIST

Used to play it a bit in the Beta, but then retail came out and I never felt like waiting for the characters that I liked to be in rotation. Nor do I feel like paying the money to use the characters that I liked. Plus I sucked.

I think I have everyone from Xfire on my friend list. I see a good amount of CAGs on it.

Xfire would be the best way to connect with other players for that game.

I covered that game on my 'Free And Legal PC Games' list.

Thats what I like about it actually, you never have to pay for anything. All the characters can be unlocked just by playing the game. The only stuff that requires real money to buy is XP and IP boosts, which give you double XP or IP for a couple days. Even those are occasionally given out for free on certain weekends. I just hit lvl 21, and have bought like 6 or so characters plus a filled all my available rune slots and I havent spent a dime.

HON is the hardcore, snot-nosed brat, elitist one of the two. I haven't played LOL, only HON, and the community is such a drag that sometimes I find myself wanting to go on a rampage... I might give LOL a try because I here the community is quite a bit better...

LOL is a great game, the community can be dicks at time. The only problem with this game is disconnects because if one person disconnects, the game doesn't do anything to reconnect a new player. So essentially someone could DC when the map loads and it becomes 4v5 the whole game.

Yeah, unfortunately that happens often. Usually you get at least one player who rage-quits. Thats why I'm trying to find people to play, so we can do arranged matches and not worry about quitters.

You learn alot from those people though, for instance, did you know that if someone has a bad game, they are automatically a noob? However, if someone is really pwning everyone else, then they are ALSO a noob cause they're obviously using an over-powered hero and playing cheaply. Also, if you're playing a game and you personally are doing terrible, but the rest of your team is doing great, it's because THEY are noobs! I actually played a game yesterday where someone rage-quit because "I would have killed him if that noob wasnt using heal!".

All that aside, I still love the game and have fun playing it. Oh, and the new 3x3 map came outta beta today :)

That is an awesome story, and it really is true, seen some of it happen myself. The DoTA community (at least for WC3) is what had kept me away for so long. Like the "No Noob/DL" games... how am I not supposed to be a noob if you won't let me DL the game and play!?!?!?! But anyway... Nice profile avatar thing (always forget the name of it).

I played Leagues of Legend awhile ago, should get back into it, but anyway my problem is that they released it way to quickly to retail. The game was good, but launching a game with only 1 playable map?

But nah I like it, well I liked it more before they decided to alter Ryze. Now I understand a nerf because then the character (or class) is the same, but weaker, or more balanced. But they completely changed how Ryze plays now with new skills... And yes i know they changed him months ago, but that was back when I played.

Dammit...this thread has inspired me to pick up this game for a few more games...cursed decently produced free game clogging up my backlog. The "First Win of the Day" bonus IP is really really nice...but it'd still take a long time to get the IP needed for a rank 4 champion. I'll hate losing Mundo when the Champion Wheel spins again in a couple days.

Gotta ask though...what's the deal with Riot Points? for 5 bucks, you get 650 RP, iirc, but any champion or skin costs more than that. Skins especially, Red Baron Corki would cost more than 10 bucks (and skins cannot be bought with IP, only RP). I know they gotta make money somehow, but dang. At that rate the only skins I'll ever own are the ones I get for free, which goes against my "gotta collect everything" nature.

Ryze is still a beast after the changes. If they player is even halfway decent they can devastate any non-tank character. I use Kat, so I just wait for him to use his trap on someone else before I hop in and Death Lotus his face.


I find RP to be complete waste of time unless you use them to buy with ip or xp boots. Either of those
will give you double ip or xp earned for X number of days. The best thing to do is use an ip boost on one of Riot's occasional 'Double IP weekends'. So you could have 4x IP for a weekend, which would be like 800 IP for your first win of the day alone. There is the issue of server downtime on those weekends though. I've seen they're server go down on IP weekends twices, but only for a few hours at a time. It still screws people over though.

No, the only downtime they have is when some hackers trying to crash the server or Riot trying to update new patch.

I use Kat mainly, just cause she's fun to play. I sometimes use Ashe, but not too often. I used to use Siv, but after many many games I finally realized that I suck with her.

It's true that it's tough to learn, but once you learn how to play it well it can be extremely rewarding. Some of the best times I've had gaming have been when I was doing well in DotA (as rare as they were).

It's A LOT better if you're playing with friends or people you know though. Find some people online or here on CAG to play with a regular basis and you'll find it to be a much better experience.

I just started playing and there is definitely a learning curve but the game play is very cool for a free game, there's lots of options and new things being added and even when you lose it's pretty fun because you'll definitely get better by playing and your "summoner" earns exp even when you lose and you get IP (which is how you upgrade stuff and purchase more hero's) every game.

Well, looks like the new problem for this week was an overabundance of players. If you tried to join a game, you'd most likely have a 5 minute wait before getting into the pre-game team chat. After that, you'd wait awhile and then be kicked back out into the waiting queue. It would always say "xxxxxx has left during champion select, you have been placed back in the matchmaking queue". Which would make sense if it happened once or twice, but it happened to me 6 times in a row! My other 2 games I played had it happen 3 or 4 times each too.

Even though its a free to play game, they do have paying customers. They need to get their servers working better.

I've tried to pick this up a few times, and each time I get about 2 games in before I run into one of the...colorful members of the community. It's about then when I remember why I hate DotA so much. (Once I tried HoN instead; there it only took one game.)

Lo and behold, the pattern repeated itself tonight. I dedicate this most recent failure to become interested in LoL to that guy whose name I've already forgotten that just spent the last 20 minutes explaining to me in no uncertain terms how horrible a person I am for daring to be bad at a video game.

What really tops it off for me, though, is the conclusion to our exchange:

Me: It's just a game, bro.
Him: one you should never play again.

Good advice, I think.

Wow... just wow. How the hell can DotA-types even survive with this much vitriol? At least the Hardcore CS community is somewhat forgiving and understanding.

My friends and I played a 3v3 earlier and won, however the servers went down right after the match, so I dont think our stats were saved. Awesome.

EDIT

Great, another 3v3, another win, and another server crash. This is getting to be bullshit. Should be 2-0 but am still 0-0.

They're like wild animals. They don't respond to reason, you simply have to show you're the alpha male by being good at the game. If you're not good at the game then you just have to take it on the chin. It sucks but that's just the kind of community that spawns in a game this heavily team based.
