    League of Legends

    If anyone is looking for a different multiplayer game to play- maybe only being used to fps' or mmorpgs. Try this. It's based on a mod made in Warcraft 3 called Dota and is currently in Beta which I believe anyone can now sign up and play. The gameplay is simple enough; you play a Hero very similar in the way of abilities of WoW or Warcraft 3 and the aim is simply to take down the opposing team's base. You earn gold for killing creeps, and enemy Heroes and you can buy items to give you the edge over your opposing hero.

    The game is very well-done and user-friendly, but as it's still in Beta there are still a few issues around. That being said while it's free you can download and get a good idea what the game is about. There are a good number of Heroes/Champions you can choose from.

    Here's an good example Champion:
    Rogue Mage

    Edit: another thing any PC should be able to run this, it's systems specs aren't high.

    oh that's a shame this thread and the other other thread has sort of died. A genuinely good game really not getting any attention.

    DotA is much better than this game, but kinda hard to get into if you've never played it before. Heroes of Newerth is pretty much a direct rip-off of DotA and a bit easier to get into (doesn't require WC3 to play for one), but currently in closed beta so you need to get a beta invite from someone to play it.

    ah I think it's more of a matter of taste. I never much went on Dota Allstars-preferring the more teamwork orientated RoC version. LoL is probably more along the older lines being a bit more slower-paced, and a little more of that element of teamwork kind of thing. It's drawback possibly is it doesn't have the diversity of heroes of Dota Allstars, or HoN, and for someone wanting more cutthroat play- LoL isn't for that since someone losing out on levelling or gold amount isn't going to have such a huge impact as the other versions. But otherwise for more casual and accessible play, I'd go for LoL for sure.

    anyone whose playing this excellent game? They've just done a new patch for the Europe version (www.lol-europe.com); new map, new items, and an alteration to the gameplay- lower hp on turrets making lane pushes more significant. (They've also locked some of the heroes that were all open to Europe players before- which was expected)

    Edit: just noticed on Gamespy it has been nominated as one of the choices for game of the year: http://uk.gamespy.com/articles/105/1053326p3.html (ie. I have an idea that people aren't trying this game because they think it's some silly browser game because they've never heard of it- it isn't as this article and reviews show, it is good and worth a play. It was made by 2 former Blizzard employees if that gives a hint of it's quality)

    This game is very underated considering its free, im playing it if you want to add me (Pestiferous). Great Combo to have with pretty much any game. At the moment its WoW and LoL for me :)

    I've been playing this of late and it's fantastic. For the price of free I recommend anyone give it a go.

    I'm on a shared account so it has helped us unlock a lot of champs, plus pumping in Riot points to unlock some sexy cool skins.

    One annoying thing in match making is no-one wants to tank so I have to pull out my SUPER SHEN. Can get boring.

    Ugh, more tanky dps champs they're introducing.

    But Leona the tank looks dope.

    Leona does look dope, but keep in mind that Riot is only releasing one more tanky DPS in Yorick, the tanky DPS, and then crystal scorpion dude is only a 'tanky fighter'.

    gawd, Riot.

    So EU won Dreamhack. Some cool team fights.

    I'm playing a lot of Lee Sin recently. I now bought Yorick but only managed one match with a fail team. I was farming really well too.

    And of course, lots of server issues. EU servers should be the premier ones, it is home of the champions!

    Blame Goa for yer servers, I think Riot just nabbed the whole kit by revoking Goa's rights to host LoL in the EU, and then bought/upgraded their servers. The US servers have been steady as a rock recently.

    I was playing Caitlyn but I've run out of time, my family is making additions to the backyard so I haven't had the 30+ minutes necessary for a LoL game recently.
