PostSubject: League Of Legends   Tue Sep 28, 2010 8:59 pm

I thought that i'd give this it's own topic, as I want to be able to post major updates as well as updating the free champions of the week. In addition i'd like to go more in depth than the other post that i had made.

League of Legends is a free multiplayer Real Time Strategy type game. You don't have to worry (much) about resource generation as the only resource is gold and the only way to get gold is by killing enemies. It's a strictly PVP game ahgainst either bots or a live team.

In the game itself, you control a single champion that you choose before the match starts. It's a team assault type gameplay with up to 5 players to a team. Currently the only game mode is where you are trying to destroy the enemy teams base, but there are talks of other game modes coming in the future. Aside from your teams champions, each team has a number of automated turrets, and also automated minions. (again, the only person that you control is your champion) The controls are very simple, using the mouse for movement and targeting and the q,w,e,r,d, and f keys to activate abilities and spells.


The Champions
every week they change the available "free" champions that you can play with, but you can permantly purchase champions either with cash (by buying relic points) or by spending points that you earn just by playing and winning matches. Of course relic points go much farther than the IP points. Usually I like to try a champion for free first, then purchase them using the in-game earned points. They also have a variety of skins available for each champion that can only be purchased with relic points.

The champions come in a variety of forms, from melee scrappers and tanks, to ranged suport, and pushers. In each match you earn experiance points for your champion by being in combat, either by defeating minions and champions, or by being nearby and assisting with the defeat of minions or champions. Each champion has 3 normal abilities that you can purchase or improve when you increase your champion level. As you go up in levels you buy ranks in your abilities (the ultimate skill doesn't unlock until lvl 6)

During the game you also earn gold, which is used to purchase items for that specific match. Items are on a tier system where lower items combine with other pieces of gear to make new items. the link below gives a better explanation.

They have an interesting way to prevent people for leaving in mid match. Once you start a match, you cannot join or create a new match until the first one is finished. This is the game designers way of handling ragequits and greifing by settnig up a 5v5 match and then quitting (before this was put into place people would leave when they were losing a match so they wouldn't have a loss on their record.)

if you DO decide to join up and want to help me out, click the following link for their refer a friend program

again, this game is free to play, it's only if you don't want to have to "earn" champions that you need spend cash on anything.

This week’s 10 free champions have been rotated. Here's this week's free champs:

Week 12 (this week)

Annie, Heimerdinger, Karthus, Rammus, Sivir, Taric, Warwick, Shen, Kog'Maw, Xin Zhao

Just a reminder that these are the free champions for this week, if any of them sound interesting to you, come check them out. you can friend me under Akamaz

Okay, I'm getting it all set up now (after being down for two or three days with some stomach bug). I have to take off for a little bit, but I should be on playing League of Legends tomorrow evening.

And you get to show me how it goes, because I'm kind of lost about the rotating champions thing so far. Razz

Huh. I've been trying for about two days, but that link which gives you kudos if I download through it goes to a blank page which stops loading at about the 40-50% mark. There's nothing wrong with that link, is there? Neutral

And good luck with the landlord! I was the furthest thing from being a prick when I was managing an apartment complex, but I got to meet plenty of landlords who were perfect pricks. Your landlord doesn't have any grudges or other personal issues with you, I hope.

our manager is a bitch.... the apointment was expected to be around 1pm... 5:00 rolls around and THEN she shows up... after keeping the kids (6 month and 2 years old) awake past nap time they went to sleep and we put them in bed we tell her the kids are sleeping and open the bedroom doors quietly so she can just look in and see that the place isn't trashed, and she waddles her way into the room, opening the closets and talking to the maintenance guy in a normal tone of voice, waking up the baby and our two year old.

Then they asked about the dishwasher (that we've had like 4 maintenance calls on in the past month) and when we tell her it's still having the same issue she makes the same suggestions about changing detergents, jet dry, running CLR through it, and basically washing the dishes before we put them in the dishwasher. if the last 5 times we did that didn't work, what the hell makes you think that THIS will be the magic time.


the issue is that any glasses or ceramic on the top shelf is coming out with stuff all over it.. usually coming out of the washer dirtier than they went in. We're getting set to make a formal complaint to the management company about this issue, as it looks like they're trying to avoid replacing the dishwasher until they have to do turnover. (this is the same worker who refused a reimbursement request for our car getting towed by the office because her dumb ass forgot to put our licence plate number in the offices logbook) She's the person who made me want to have everything in writing and copies of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING with my name on it.

Sorry about the mini rant, i'm majorly pissed about this, especially her last suggestion of "wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher" she seems to be a memember of the "sinks are for washing, dishwashers are for steralising" for starters, non commercial dishwashers don't meet the temperature requirements to sterilize (near boiling point) nor the time frame (as sterilizing with boiling water takes about 30 minutes)

Unfortunately, that link keeps freezing up and crashing the page on me. I'm going to try Firefox instead of IE. If that fails, permission to download from the regular link? Neutral
