Today I want to introduce to you one of the most profitable 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 Area), which is oriented in the direction of the well-known Warcraft three - Map "Defense of the Ancients".

For those who never performed DotA (are there any?) and who do not know the game idea I'll clarify it in detail:

The beginning

League of Legends does not put excessive necessities in your PCs. You need at the least:

- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 capable video card, - 750 MB free exhausting disk house, - DSL or similar

Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on the place you live. You can too create an account on US while residing in Europe but you will expertise higher pings then. I offer you a link to create an account in my author's bio. Select a name (all the time the toughest part) and a nice picture and off you go!

The Champions

There are 2 groups 5 players (there are more game modes, however they are not vital at first because as a newbie it is best to begin with 5vs5 to study the gameplay). Before each match you all choose a "champion" who's the character you need to use in battle. Dependant on your personal 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 greater than eighty (!) totally different champions and every second week one is added.

Each champions has four totally different abilities (three normal and one extra sturdy, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You learn the abilities by leveling up ingame and your max champion stage is 18 which implies that you've 5 points in each regular capability and three in your ultimate.

You obtain expertise for levelling up by:

1. Being near when enemy minions or impartial monsters are killed by your troops (it isn't essential to kill them yourself!)

2. killing or helping to kill enemy champions

To start with you usually play no matter you want, later it is helpful to speak together with your teammembers earlier than the match begins so that you've a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the same kind.

The different sorts of champions are roughly:

1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means capability energy, they primarily deal magical damage with their talents)

2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Injury, they mainly deal physical damage with their autoattacks)

3. Tanks (They're laborious to kill and defend their own carries, for instance by beautiful or taunting the enemies)

4. Supports (They have either buffs or heals to assist their carries and preserve them alive)

5. Junglers (They do not start within the lane however within the jungle and support their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)

The attention-grabbing point is: Relying on the gadgets you equip on your champions they are usually able to meet different roles!

To start with you do not have own champions, however each week there are 10 free ones which everyone can use. After some matches you can buy more champions with affect points (IP) within the shop. I'll come to this later.

The map

The map has 3 different lanes, which lead from your own to the enemy base. On these lanes there are a number of Towers which you will need to destroy before you may assault the bottom itself. As a help your essential building ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which assist you in fights. Between the lanes there's the "jungle", the place impartial monsters are located. For those who kill those you obtain gold and/or non permanent buffs.

As quickly as the match begins everybody has a few minute to spend his beginning capital on objects in the shop.

This doesn't take lengthy since you don't have much gold within the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold within the game:

1. Everyone receives gold over time

2. Killing enemy minions or impartial monsters (right here you will need to give them the ultimate blow, the so called "lasthitting")

3. Killing or aiding to kill enemy champions

4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)

5. There are a number of gadgets which grant you extra earnings (the so known as gold/5 items -> they provide you 1 gold every 5 seconds)

The objective

In case you destroy the enemy predominant constructing (Nexus) your team wins. For being able to assault the Nexus, nevertheless, you must destroy all three towers and the inhibitor on at the least one lane and the 2 towers which shield the Nexus. So it's not the very best idea to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 for those who don't push the lanes on the similar time. A median match takes 30-forty five minutes, rarely more than an hour. As soon because the match reaches minute 20 it is also doable to surrender.

More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") the place you must seize and defend certain points. As well as there are ranked modes for players with summoner degree 30 (clarification follows) wherein you obtain an Elo count depending in your wins and losses. For beginners I highly advocate the traditional 5vs5 map!

The summoners

league of legends t-shirt shop of Legends also has an RPG part. You do not only choose a reputation and an image for yourself (you're a so called "summoner", do not combine it up with the "champions") but you are additionally able to level up yourself and buy small buffs with Influence Factors (IP).
