Hey guys, a few people here have been getting into a game called League of Legends (LoL), which is a free to play DOTA clone.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with DOTA, it was originally a mod for Warcraft where two teams are pitted against each other. The goal is to destroy the others team base, with support from minions, small npcs who are spawned throughout the entirety of the match. You control a hero, a powerful unit who you level throughout a single match. To ultimately destroy the other side's base, you need to destroy turrets (towers that deal a lot of damage) and to finally win the entire game, you must destroy the enemy team's Nexus.

Now, LoL also has microtransactions. However, fret not as these have absolutely no relevance to actual gameplay. Everything you can buy, you can also obtain with points you get through playing and the speed at which you get these are actually pretty fast, depending on your performance within games.

About five or so of us have been getting into it really heavily lately and we'd love to have more people join us. You can sign up and download the game, once again, for free,here. Don't worry, the game isn't terribly difficult to get in to and a good tutorial is offered.

Want to play with fellow SDCers? Contact Ethan Clay (Chandler, Arizona) on Skype or message Gandaf007/Ed5/FrostyYeti on Steam and we'll get you started in a game.

Been playing for about a year - my account name is: xxshady (summoner name: CocoBware) Can't wait to play with you guys !

By the way, for any skeptics - Dota is probably one of the greatest online gaming experiences you will ever have. Play League of Legends before hopping into Dota 2 when it comes out, you'll thank yourself.

Ethan, sorry.

I thought you guys were playing War of Legends, I had no idea what League of Legends was.

That's why I said it was Evony without tits and I was judging you guys. :(

I prefer Heroes of Newerth, but I'm not going to turn this into a LoL vs HoN thread, since the community of the two are at war. I can see the obvious benefits to LoL being free, however the $30 for HoN was definitely worth it for me. I've gotten about 4,000 hours out of it and more to come.

Anyway, on LoL itself, it's probably the best free game going around at the moment.

Lore isn't important in the MOBA genre.

Level eight as well, only 10 wins, tho.

Although, I rape everything with Ryze. Best match was 27-4 (Although, we lost) and I aced an entire team by myself in a 3v3 an hour or so ago. Getting pretty good at this game now.

I reached level 9, and I LOVE Blitzcrank. He's so good at punishing the enemy for stupid mistakes, taking out turrets, and is pretty beefy xD

We mostly do PvP. But once in awhile we do vs bots to test out some characters.

What's MOBA?

Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. It's the "Dota genre" of online games. Currently the most played MOBA games are Dota, League of Legends, and Heroes of Newerth.
