At present I would like to introduce to you one of the 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 the direction of the famous Warcraft three - Map "Protection of the Ancients".
For many who never performed DotA (are there any?) and who don't know the game concept I will explain it intimately:
League of Legends would not put excessive necessities in your PCs. You need not less than:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 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 the place you live. You may also create an account on US while residing in Europe but you will expertise larger pings then. I give you a hyperlink to create an account in my writer's bio. Select a name (at all times the hardest half) and a pleasant image and off you go!
There are 2 teams 5 gamers (there are extra game modes, however they are not 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 is the character you need to use in battle. Dependant in your private preferendes it may be e.g. an undead mage, a large granite golem, somewhat boy using on a Yeti, a brave knight and many more.All in all there are greater than eighty (!) totally different champions and each second week one is added.
Each champions has 4 totally different skills (three regular and one extra strong, the "Final") and a passive, which he has because the beginning. You learn the skills by leveling up ingame and your max champion degree is eighteen which means that you've got 5 factors in each regular ability and three in your ultimate.
You receive experience for levelling up by:
1. Being close to when enemy minions or neutral monsters are killed by your troops (it isn't necessary to kill them your self!)
2. killing or assisting to kill enemy champions
In the beginning you usually play no matter you like, later it is useful to communicate with your teammembers before the match begins so that you have a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the same kind.
The completely different kinds of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means means power, they primarily deal magical injury with their talents)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Damage, they mainly deal bodily injury with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They are laborious to kill and protect their own carries, for instance by stunning or taunting the enemies)
4. Supports (They have both buffs or heals to help their carries and maintain them alive)
5. Junglers (They do not start within the lane but in the jungle and assist their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The attention-grabbing point is: Relying on the items you equip on your champions they are usually able to satisfy different roles!
At first you do not have own champions, however each week there are 10 free ones which everybody can use. After some matches you should purchase extra champions with affect points (IP) in the shop. I'll come to this later.
The map has three completely different lanes, which lead from your individual to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which it's essential to destroy earlier than you'll be able to assault the bottom itself. As a help your most important constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which assist you in fights. Between the lanes there is the "jungle", the place impartial monsters are located. When you kill those you obtain gold and/or short-term buffs.
As quickly as the match begins everybody has a couple of minute to spend his starting capital on objects in the shop.
This does not take lengthy since you do not have a lot gold within the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold in the game:
1. Everybody receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or impartial monsters (right here you will need to give them the ultimate blow, the so referred to as "lasthitting")
3. Killing or assisting to kill enemy champions
4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)
5. There are a number of objects which grant you further income (the so known as gold/5 gadgets -> they give you 1 gold every 5 seconds)
In case you destroy the enemy predominant building (Nexus) your crew wins. For being able to assault the Nexus, nonetheless, you must destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on at least one lane and the 2 towers which protect the Nexus. So it isn't the most effective concept to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 for those who don't push the lanes on the similar time. A median match takes 30-45 minutes, rarely greater than an hour. As soon because the match reaches minute 20 it is usually potential to surrender.
More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") the place you need to capture and defend certain points. In addition there are ranked modes for gamers with summoner level 30 (rationalization follows) through which you receive an Elo rely relying on your wins and losses. For beginners I extremely suggest the traditional 5vs5 map!

of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You don't only choose a name and an image for your self (you are a so called "summoner", don't mix it up with the "champions") however you are also able to level up yourself and purchase small buffs with Influence Factors (IP).
