As we speak I would like to introduce to you one of the profitable free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!

League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), which is oriented towards the well-known Warcraft three - Map "Defense of the Ancients".

For those who by no means performed DotA (are there any?) and who do not know the game idea I will explain it in detail:

The start

League of Legends does not put high necessities on your PCs. You need a minimum of:

- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX capable video card, - 750 MB free laborious disk space, - DSL or related

Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, relying on where you live. You can even create an account on US whereas residing in Europe but you will experience greater pings then. I give you a link to create an account in my writer's bio. Select a name (at all times the hardest half) and a pleasant picture and off you go!

The Champions

There are 2 teams 5 players (there are extra game modes, however they aren't vital in the beginning because as a newbie you should begin with 5vs5 to study the gameplay). Earlier than each match you all select a "champion" who is the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant in your personal preferendes it may be e.g. an undead mage, a large granite golem, a little boy using on a Yeti, a brave knight and plenty of more.All in all there are more than 80 (!) different champions and each second week one is added.

Every champions has four totally different skills (3 regular and one extra sturdy, the "Final") and a passive, which he has because the beginning. You study the skills by leveling up ingame and your max champion level is 18 which means that you've got 5 points in each normal capacity and 3 in your ultimate.

You obtain experience for levelling up by:

1. Being near when enemy minions or neutral monsters are killed by your troops (it is not necessary to kill them your self!)

2. killing or aiding to kill enemy champions

At first you usually play no matter you want, later it's useful to communicate together with your teammembers before the match begins so that you've a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the identical kind.

The different kinds of champions are roughly:

1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means skill energy, they mainly deal magical harm with their talents)

2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Damage, they primarily deal bodily harm with their autoattacks)

3. Tanks (They are exhausting to kill and protect their very own carries, for instance by gorgeous or taunting the enemies)

4. Helps (They have both buffs or heals to help their carries and preserve them alive)

5. Junglers (They don't begin within the lane but in the jungle and help their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)

The fascinating point is: Relying on the objects you equip in your champions they're often able to satisfy totally different roles!

In the beginning you do not have personal champions, however each week there are 10 free ones which everyone can use. After some matches you can buy extra champions with influence factors (IP) in the shop. I will come to this later.

The map

The map has 3 completely different lanes, which lead from your personal to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you must destroy earlier than you can attack the bottom itself. As a help your important constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which provide help to in fights. Between the lanes there is the "jungle", the place impartial monsters are located. If you kill those you receive gold and/or non permanent buffs.

As quickly as the match begins everybody has a couple of minute to spend his starting capital on objects in the shop.

This doesn't take lengthy since you don't have much 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 ultimate blow, the so known as "lasthitting")

3. Killing or helping to kill enemy champions

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

5. There are a number of items which grant you additional earnings (the so referred to as gold/5 objects -> they offer you 1 gold every 5 seconds)

The goal

For those who destroy the enemy most important building (Nexus) your crew wins. For being able to attack the Nexus, nonetheless, you have to destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on at the least one lane and the 2 towers which shield the Nexus. So it is not one of the best thought to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 if you don't push the lanes on the same time. A mean match takes 30-45 minutes, hardly ever more than an hour. As quickly as the match reaches minute 20 it is also possible to surrender.

More game modes are a 3vs3 and a fairly new domination map ("Dominion") where it's a must to capture and defend sure points. As well as there are ranked modes for gamers with summoner stage 30 (rationalization follows) wherein you receive an Elo count depending on your wins and losses. For rookies I extremely advocate the conventional 5vs5 map!

The summoners

league of legends shirt of Legends also has an RPG part. You do not only select a name and a picture for your self (you're a so called "summoner", don't combine it up with the "champions") but you might be also able to level up your self and purchase small buffs with Influence Points (IP).
