League of legends is this free game where you fight each other RPG style in teams in a battle arena. Each game session lasts for a about 30minutes. I'm one of the developers working on it.

If you've tried it?
What do you think?

I've always appreciated good feedback.

If you haven't played it yet you can download and play it here: https://signup.leagueoflegends.com/

Thanks Hohums,

I downloaded and played this game 3 hours ago, I can't stop playing it . Pretty awesome! I can't believe I haven't heard about it before. I played Hon and DotA but this at least for now seems fresh.

I love this game, I play it all damn day. It's ridiculously addicting and fun. I of course played DotA, and I tried out HoN... but HoN is way too much an exact clone of DotA, I believe League of Legends is the true successor (especially because it has Pendragon as CR and Guinsoo working on it) to DotA. It's an evolution, not just a clone.

HoN may have some badass graphics, and LoL may be a little cartoony (almost Warcraft style), but it's gameplay that matters, right?

Also, Hohums, what exactly do you do for Riot Games? I'm having a little difficulty believing you are involved in development, especially if you assume games last 30 minutes on average. I'd say they're generally 45-50 minutes long, unless you stomp the enemy team early and they surrender at 25 minutes in, which isn't rare only in the situation that your team is 'premade'.

Thanks eulogy1337 and Matple,

I'm glad you like our game.

I'm a game engineer / programmer, I do most of the stuff that is inside the actual game. I'm very active on the league of legends forums and in the game. If you would like we could play a game together on the weekend. My nick is Hohums.

As to the lengths of games; from the stats I can see is that most games are between 30 and 45 minutes for 5v5 and 25-30 minutes for twisted tree line (3v3) in the game (not including things like joining etc...). We've recently made more balance changes to reduce the amount of time a game takes. We are going to keep balancing around that.

I remember checking the trailer and everything. But what I don't remember is if I have to pay like a monthly fee to play the game.

Its not really a copy, its made from the developers of DOTA all stars. Its quite good from what i've played, and matches can get addicting especially if your on a kill streak, and its always glorious to crowstorm an group of people as fidlesticks or gate to kill a wounded enemy champ as twisted fate. The only bad part is that their arent many levels, currently only three and one is basically a reskin of another map. If they can start making more maps itll be even better.

As one of the former top 500~ players in LoL, I have some comments about the game that I will share with you guys.

League of legends certainly have some good aspects compared to other games.
1. Its very competitive.
2. Money does NOT help you become stronger. Money is used to buy "skins", which do not affect your gameplay
3. The game is very much skill based.
4. The max level is 30, which is reached very easily. And basically, you cannot get stronger afterwards; its pure skill
5. A lot of teamwork, a lot of characters, a lot of roles and different play styles you can tryout.

Bad parts:
1. The most awful part about the game is the issue of balancing the 43+ characters. Now, now, its not the "issue of time" that will balance the characters. The balancers are VERY awful at balancing. For example, they buff weak characters to a state of being the most OP ( happened many times..), and nerf characters to a state thats overshadowed and very much UP. The cycle continues on and on...

Why does the cycle keep on continuing? The main "balancer" is pretty much biased and make too many hasty decisions. We have seen times in which she would rant on a character being OP during her livestream, and nerf the character afterwards, even if the majority and the top players disagree.

When the most community called for a nerf on her favorite character. She nerfed the character "indirectly". There are different "builds" for a character. She nerfed the build that she never even uses... therefore not affecting her gameplay.

She is pretty much a crappy balancer by playing mostly only 1 character. She doesn't even know how much to buff a character or which characters really needs a nerf.

2. At High ELO, the matches get to repetitive by facing the same people over and over again with the SAME characters. There is a limited amount of characters that can do good at High ELO.... Too much overshadowed characters....

3. Season 1 still have not started yet even though the game has been released for 7+ months now.

I've tried it and I didn't like it because you can't do solo mission and I find that really annoying.

League of Legends is just too awesome for words. It MUST be played, but don't think of this as an MMORPG because it's NOT. It's an RTS, but with automatic units that fight for you and your only selected champion among 5 or 10 other players. For now, it's only Twisted Treeline and Summoner's Rift, but they've released art of the new stuff. New champions get added quite frequently (as of this post, new champions: Miss Fortune, Sona, Swain, and up and coming Lux), but some of the champions can be a little too OP (try taking on Master Yi sometime). I'm an Annie, the dark child user. She's got fire, Tibbers, and a whole lotta spunk.
