League of Legends

Postby Aubade » Mon May 24, 2010 3:10 am

Anyone else been playing this? Friend got me into it last night, It's fun as hell =]


From the people who made DotA, It's a free version BASICALLY. There's a lot of differences but I'm too tired to put them in here right now.

Oh, there's new EU servers coming up, so I put it off till (?)12:01 GMT, 27th, if you wanna play. Good news is that after that GOA will no longer run LoL in EU, so no more connection problems.

I have an account with LoL, pintodragon.

My game playing time is very limited and lately I have been using it to play wow.

I also was going to apply for a job with them but they are looking for people in LA or willing to move to LA :(.

I've actually stopped playing WoW and started playing this.

Johndrum is my summoner name, add me for a game. I play a mean Ezreal and a meaner Mordekeiser.

I've played a few games, only really have been able to hold my own as sivir, but overall it's a fun game. I just suck.

Sivir is nasty in a lane but she's really fragile and doesn't have much in the way of CC. Once you get ricochet leveled up to around 3-4 she can start exercising her superior lane control but she's very much a glass cannon. Any aggresive play can shut her down fairly easily. Add in the fact that vampiric scepter only applies to the initial hit and not to the boomerang bounces and she's pretty easy to force into a turret hug situation if she's mid against Morde or an Ez that can connect with mystic shot.

If you're into ranged dps carries try playing somebody like Teemo or Corki. Teemo is a demon at lane control with his mushrooms and Corki has some sick sick range on his missiles. Corki also forces you to get good with skillshots (as does Ezreal) which makes you into a better player. He also has the advantage of Valk for a built-in escape mechanism.

I'm on the EU servers, add me if you want someone decent to fool around with. I'm scrub level, but at least I'm not a total n00b. What's my name? Guess!

Also, yay at server transfer ending a day early, QQ at "2 fixes" keeping the servers down anyway :S

Tristana is also a good ranged carry, once you get items, you can just auto attack people to death, it's quite annoying.

Well, at least she's not Twitch.

He's so squishy and doesn't have any escape abilities. I might just be building him wrong though. I bought him a month or so ago, won a few TT's with him and never busted him out again so I don't have a great gear setup or skill order yet.

When he's fed, lawls. Until he's fed he's actually semi-hard to play.

Any hero with stealth is a bit OP imo, as based on the dynamics of the game, 2 on 1 can be a total gankfest, thus knowing opponent locations is paramount, and to deal with stealth you need to buy the expensive of the 2 wards, which limit where you can be, as the range isn't that big, or buy an elixir, which eats into your item build a lot, and the fact that you lose it if you die is annoying.

Twitch doesn't really need to be fed as much as you think, you just need a certain amount of +attack speed, since each hit stacks poison, stealth, wait for someone to get distracted attacking a tower, or moving somewhere, unstealth with your bonus attack speed, then just expunge for stupid burst damage with autoattack + 1 skill.

He's just stupid hero, period. He's not n00b friendly though. You actually need to know how to use him, but you can start owning from around lvl 4 or something depending on how much money you have from first blood, kills and last hitting.

Against a decent team at a high ELO he's worthless. As soon as I see a Twitch in 5v5 I adjust my playing strat, as soon as I see an Evelyn in 3v3 I adjust for that (I laugh at Eve in 5v5, she's crap).

Wards aren't that expensive and can be placed in choke points. You know, if you're mid, that twitch is going to sit in one of the bushes on the river while he waits for his stealth CD and the proper opening. You know he'll do the same if you're top or bottom.

With good lane support and a laning partner that's on vent he's not going to kill you if you're awake. And in a teamfight? HAHAHAHAHHA, he's a red smear on the ground or running for his life as soon as spray n' pray gets popped.

ELO is a commonly used ranking system, which while not perfect is quite good.

Look at this RETARDED team I got for TT. The Master Yi went AFK about 10 minutes in, and then the silvir guy just stopped playing after he got owned by a 3v1. And I still managed to hold em off for a while =]

EU or US? Even with the change from GoA to Riot Games, regions are still account separate, like WoW.

LFL
Heroes still need to be unlocked with points, either by coughing up money to get Riot Points, or just playing to earn Influence Points. There is a rotation of free heroes that gets changed per week, and I think you get a random free hero when you make an account, that's the only explanation I have come up with why I have a random Corki unlocked on my account, as the last time I played before restarting was during the beta when everything was unlocked.

Pretty sure it's US, should be anyway. Still trying to find what hero I'm decent at.
