Right now I want to introduce to you one of the vital 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 direction of the well-known Warcraft 3 - Map "Defense of the Ancients".
For those who never played DotA (are there any?) and who do not know the game concept I will explain it in detail:
League of Legends doesn't put excessive necessities in your PCs. You want not less than:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 capable video card, - 750 MB free arduous disk area, - DSL or similar
Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on where you live. You may as well create an account on US whereas dwelling in Europe but you'll expertise higher pings then. I give you a link to create an account in my author's bio. Choose a reputation (always the toughest half) and a nice picture and off you go!
There are 2 teams 5 players (there are extra game modes, however they don't seem to be vital to start with because as a newbie you must start with 5vs5 to learn the gameplay). Before every match you all choose a "champion" who's the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant in your private preferendes it can be e.g. an undead mage, a giant granite golem, a bit boy using on a Yeti, a courageous knight and lots of more.All in all there are more than eighty (!) different champions and each second week one is added.
Every champions has 4 totally different skills (three regular and one further robust, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You study the talents by leveling up ingame and your max champion stage is 18 which implies that you've got 5 points in every normal skill and three in your ultimate.
You receive 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 your self!)
2. killing or helping to kill enemy champions
In the beginning you usually play no matter you want, later it's useful to speak along with your teammembers earlier than the match begins so that you have a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the same kind.
The different kinds of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means skill energy, they primarily deal magical injury with their abilities)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Harm, they mainly deal bodily harm with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They are onerous to kill and defend their own carries, for example by beautiful or taunting the enemies)
4. Supports (They've both buffs or heals to help their carries and keep them alive)
5. Junglers (They don't begin in the lane but within the jungle and support their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The interesting point is: Depending on the items you equip in your champions they're typically able to fulfill totally different roles!
To start with you don't have own champions, but every week there are 10 free ones which everybody can use. After some matches you should purchase more champions with affect factors (IP) in the shop. I'll come to this later.
The map has 3 different lanes, which lead from your personal to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you should destroy earlier than you can attack the bottom itself. As a help your predominant constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which assist you to in fights. Between the lanes there is the "jungle", where impartial monsters are located. In case you kill those you obtain gold and/or temporary buffs.
As quickly because the match begins everyone has a couple of minute to spend his starting capital on gadgets in the shop.
This does not take long since you don't have a lot gold within the beginning. There are other ways to earn gold in the game:
1. Everybody receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or neutral monsters (right here you will need to give them the final blow, the so known as "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 several objects which grant you additional revenue (the so called gold/5 items -> they provide you 1 gold every 5 seconds)
When you destroy the enemy principal constructing (Nexus) your crew wins. For being able to attack the Nexus, nevertheless, you need to destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on not less than one lane and the two towers which defend the Nexus. So it's not one of the best thought to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 if you don't push the lanes at the same time. An average match takes 30-forty five minutes, not often greater than an hour. As quickly because the match reaches minute 20 it's also attainable to surrender.
More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") where you have to seize and defend sure points. In addition there are ranked modes for gamers with summoner stage 30 (explanation follows) in which you receive an Elo count relying on your wins and losses. For inexperienced persons I highly suggest the normal 5vs5 map!

of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You do not only choose a name and an image for your self (you're a so referred to as "summoner", do not combine it up with the "champions") but you are also able to level up yourself and purchase small buffs with Affect Factors (IP).
