Brief Description: League of Legends is a competitive online game set in a fantasy world. You, take the role of a summoner, calling forth and controlling a champion in 5v5 PVP battles. League of Legends combines the best elements of session-based games with persistent elements of MMORPG's and RTS. You gain experience to level as a summoner, and points that allow you to purchase new champions.

Pros:
  • Wide variety of champions
  • You can buy champions using points earned from playing games, or you can purchase game points via PayPal, game cards etc
  • Content is added on a regular basis.
  • Patches are frequent and any issues are quickly fixed.
  • 10 free champions available, and they are rotated every 2 weeks or so.
  • The losing team can surrender after 25mins of gameplay.
Cons:
  • Some people tend to be very harsh in dealing with newbies.
  • Experience and points are very hard to come by - average about 150 per game, and each game takes about 1hr.
  • Only one arena to fight in.
  • pre-made groups are a must if you want to win more often than lose.

Other Comments: Very addictive and extremely enjoyable if played with friends.
