The lights are on
League of Legends is the spiritual successor to Dota Allstars a MOD for WC3 TFT, it is a stand alone game under development from Riot Games with various industry veterans such as Zileas (Thomas Cadwell) former Starcraft champion who worked under Blizzard now working as head of systems design at Riot Games, there are also Steve (Pendragon_) Meson, owner and operator of Dota-Allstars.com and Steve (Guinsoo) Feak who worked with Dota Allstars prior to version 6.
In League of Legends you take on the role of a summoner who summons various champions in a field of battle with various objectives, with over 200 unique items you can craft and various spells and combos the game is awe inspiring. Unlike Dota it also has an MMO feel to it with a costum spell mastery trees and a rune system that give you additional stats.
Some of the features in LOL:
Leaver Buster Technology(TM)
Auto-Match Making (Ranked Games) ELO Rating System
Extensive Stats Tracking
Seasonal Ladder ranking system
Lot more I can't think of.
Anyways I have a few beta keys, if anyone wants to try the game, at the moment the game is closed beta and the game will go live on October 27th of 2009.
Also the biggest fact is the game is free, yes the game is free.
Anyone wants a key, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, I have a limited amount of beta keys so I am giving them on a first come first serve basis.
YES! i just heard about like last month. i've been waiting for this game ever since this is like another game i want this year.
it looks really great.
you cant "BEAT" me unless you "CHEAT" me
Hey, do you want a beta key? I need your email address ASAP and I will email it to you ASAP...
WOW! please send me that thanks man,
Well, I sent you a beta key, have fun...
Yeah I have some Keys as well if anyone is interested.
@ Sayan - thanks im really glad you took the time out to send me one, but far as the game go. i played it twice, not really feeling the game too much, its weird and the movement kind of sucks, and its just defeat minions i thought it was like run around alone and do quest. but then again it may just be me
Have you played the tutorial? It is more than killing minions, it is about killing other enemy players, also check out their forums. The client itself tells you how to play the game, just click on the link that say for new players or how to get started.
You can also play against BOTS in practice games, it has a mastery tree and it has a rune system that awards you for playing with extra stats.
There will also be more maps in the future so check it out.
alright i'll try doing that, i was going to give it a couple go's before i really determine if i like it or not anyways.
