Things That Drive Me Nuts - (The People Who Play) League of Legends

League of Legends, commonly known as LoL, is one of my favourite games. It’s one of a plethora of games that are based on Defence of the Ancients, or DOTA, which was a Warcraft III mod. In this game two five player teams battle it out in an arena. There are three lanes going from north to south - it is on these lanes and sometimes in the jungle between where the game is fought. The aim is to destroy the enemy base before they destroy yours.

It’s a great game that I really enjoy. The thing it’s a team game and the people that play this game can be a bunch of immature arseholes, who refuse to play as a team. It’s so frustrating. In some games if you do one wrong thing, or even do something unexpected, you will be intensely criticised for it very rudely.

The makers of the game have tried very hard to eliminate this aspect of the game by introducing a tribunal system that rewards good behaviour and punishes bad. And I think it is working. Is a great game that is completely free to play. The micro transaction system does not give some players an unfair advantage. You can pay money for skins which give characters a new look and feel without changing their functionality or abilities.

There is a vast array of champions to select from, with a random set of champions being free to play for that week. You can then buy the champions you like with loyalty points that you earn playing the game.

I give it 4.6 out of 5. (Hang on, this didn’t start out as a review? Just ignore that last line. (And ignore this too.))

In for a penny…. I give the average person that plays league of legends a 1.9 out of 5 - averaging out the two scores give the final total of 3.25 out of 5.
