League of Legends

Today I want to give a shout out to one of the best FREEEEEE games I've ever f***ing played. That game would happen to be League of Legends. The style of the game is a Defense of the Ancients game that highlights player vs. player combat. It has extensive meta and in game content. The best part? It is mainly free! It has some premium content if u get addicted to it (try it, you will) such as I have.

The reasons you should try it:
Free champions
-7 random champions a week

Tons of champions
-Currently 62 champions! Find the one you love!!!!

New champs
-New champs every 2-3 weeks usually!!!!!

Team Game play

Meta-game currency won by winning games
-IP (Influence points are in the game currency u earn for winning/losing matches)
-Spendable on champions and runes
-A way to further customize your in game character and stats

-Talent points
-Three trees to follow:
-Offense Defense Utility (mage more or less)

Premium Content
-Completely optional
-Buy new awesome looking skin for your favorite champions
-Buy more pages for your runebook
-Buy Champions right when they come out
-Buy boosts
      • 2 types
        • Xp boosts (xp as in u lvl in a meta game giving u talent points and rune slots capping at lvl 30)
        • IP boosts

This is the only Decent HD video I could find of my favorite champ Jax, the Grandmaster at Arms. Please full Screen it and turn to 1080p if you want to see it better. Still slightly blurry but meh decent footage.

It is seldom the case where a champion is defined by his actions after joining the League of Legends rather than before. Such is the case with Jax, for whom the argument could be made that he is the most prolific tournament fighter currently at the Institute of War. Before joining the League, Jax was an unremarkable soldier-for-hire. For reasons known only to the former leader of the League, High Councilor Reginald Ashram, Jax was put on the top of the list of candidates to receive a League Judgment - the interview process that either accepts or rejects a prospective champion. His Judgment was the quickest in League history, where the Doors of Acceptance glowed and slowly swung open as soon as it began. Jax faced no recorded Observation or Reflection during his Judgment.

Jax proved himself to be an immediate terror in the Fields of Justice. The self-proclaimed ''Armsmaster of the League'' rattled off a streak of consecutive wins that to this day has not been matched. A number of summoners in the League grew concerned that the perceived objectivity of the League of Legends would be questioned by the presence of an unknown fighter who was unbeatable. For this reason, the new leader of the League (following Reginald Ashram's disappearance) , High Councilor Heyward Relivash, created special restrictions for Jax to fight under. This was something the League had never done before, and something which has never been done since. The burly fighter responded by imposing his own special conditions; as a means of protest, he permitted himself to fight using only a brass lamppost. Neither the League's sanctions nor his own has affected his winning ways. The League has since rescinded its sanctions, but Jax has not; he fights and fights well with his trusty brass lamppost.

''Be advised - there has been an outbreak of lamppost-shaped bruises in the League of Legends.'' -- Gragas

May do a guide on how to dominate with him later.
Hope you liked an introduction to the amazing game that is League of Legends!!!.


  1. i prefer HoN over LoL, but since lol is free, a real comparison shouldn't be made.

  2. I could never really get that into DotA :/

  3. My friend told me about this I might try this one day!

  4. You know I downloaded LoL but I played it once and didn't really mess with it again. Not that I didn't like it, I just wasn't into the hype and haven't gotten into it as much as I have with past PC games.

  5. I dont think my computer could handle it ;_;

  6. This sounds like a very interesting game. I haven't played a fantasy game like this in quite a while. I'll have to keep it in mind for when I finally have a less hectic time at work and have some free time to spare.

  7. This game kicks ass!
    Thanks for the visit :)

  8. JAX FTW WIN LAWLZ. So if he's so good, wouldn't that sort of make him like a handicap character. EZ MODE lulz.

  9. Never played, remind me of Warcraft III

  10. Oh God, I have not time to play DotA D:
    Anyway it seems really great, I'm curious to read the guide.

  11. looks really interesting, ill check it out.
