    League of Legends is a FREE online multiplayer team based combat strategy game.

    IT IS SICK SON.

    http://www.leagueoflegends.com/ for more information.

    Supposedly it is similiar to DotA, but I never played DotA, so couldn't tell ya. Anyways, it is extremely well put together and the best word that describes the game is INTENSE!!!

    You start fighting with your champion, and you fight and fight and fight.. very little downtime!

    If you would like to play with lord scumbag, you can find me under the gamertag "Stope"

    I was curious how many others on SoD play this... I know my friend has gotten a few whispers because he names his pets after LoL heroes for kicks.

    Warwick = shm pet
    Tibbers = dru pet
    etc...

    But yeah, this is a great game that unfortunately is NOT complete! My friends and I have been playing since beta (probably over 1000 games each all-in-all) and while it has so much potential they need to implement draft mode already. Their match making system is decent atm, but fails at the high ELO bracket due to blind pick.

    Overall you won't regret trying the game out, but most of us have stopped playing LoL until they finish a few features like Draft mode in particular (community has been asking for it since beta started which was almost 6 months ago). Don't get me wrong though, I am not bashing the game, I am just disappointed that Riot games (the developer) has taken so long to implement the one feature that makes MOBA's enjoyable and "balanced".

    Including my refer-a-friend link, feel free to add me on LoL (account name JarL) if anyone starts playing it. I can offer a lot of insight into the game if anyone has any questions.

    Mundo: Mundo Mundo Mundo.

    I: Mundo

    Mundore Mundo two Mundo Mundo play Mundo. Mundo a LoL player, Mundo Mundo a Mundo player. A LoL player Mundo look at a situation, consider Mundo pros Mundo cons of a Mundower Mundo, Mundo benefit of Mundo kill gold vs. Mundo time spent recovering, Mundo Mundo number of minions in range Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundower Cleaver. A Mundo player Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo. Mundo.

    II: Pre-Game

    Mundo want movespeed Mundo health. Runes, masteries, Mundo. Movespeeds Mundo healths. 0-15-15 is how Mundo roll. Mundo Mundo throw in red crit runes if Mundo promise Mundo eat all Mundor vegitables.

    Mundo basic goal here is Mundo be as large Mundo as Mundo as possible right out of Mundo gate. Mundo benefit Mundoly from Mundo health, Mundo Mundo don't give a rats ass about CC, so Mundo speed makes Mundo inescapable.

    Summoner Spells Mundo love: (Condon's Mundo: Teleport Exhaust, or Tele Cleanse)
    Teleport: Mundo Mundo, Mundo Mundo an excellent lane pusher late game. By late game, Mundo mean twenty Mundos in. Mundops. Mundo, teleport is Mundo chicken. It goes Mundo Mundo. Delicious chicken.
    Cleanse: "Mundo Mundo, Mundo already have reduced CC" Mundo know whats better than reduced CC? None. Mundo. Between fire Mundo clense Mundo alMundo moving, Mundo Mundo loves Mundo move it move it.
    Smite: Early farming, Mundo Mundo Mundo sneaking cleavers in *smite a minion, cleaver Mundo hero hiding behind Mundo* Mundo Mundoly only Mundo Mundo Mundo first ten Mundos or so. Mundo Mundo it becomes moot.
    Clairvoyance: Mundo Mundo Mundo jungle cleavers, Mundo Mundoly a Mundo utility spell.
    Ghost: Mundo know what sucks? Mundo coming at Mundo at 450+MS. Mundo know whats worse? Mundoer Mundo.
    Exhaust: Mundo Mundos Mundo hit squishies. Mundo Mundos Mundo hit Mundom many times.

    Summoner Spells Mundo hate:
    Heal: Mundo Mundo Mundo need heal.
    Clarity: Mundo Mundo Mundo need mana.
    Rally: Mundo Mundo go where he pleases, Mundo usually he pleases Mundo go many places.
    Flash: Mundo Mundo raMundor cleanse or ghost. Flash Mundo Mundo limited Mundo Mundo Mundo.
    Ignite: Mundo needs Mundo fire. He Mundo cleavers. Many, many cleavers.

    III: Mundools of Mundo Trade

    Mundo Mundo his cleaver, Mundo find Mundo many oMundor items Mundo Mundo apply cleaver Mundo face, Mundo continue Mundo go where he pleases.

    Mundoing Mundo, Mundo Mundo Mundo take regrowth pendant, as Mundo spend much of game Mundo bleeding holes all over, Mundo unMundo Mundo View. This Mundo Mundos Mundo deter feeble squishies from shooting Mundoir pointy Mundo at Mundo.

    Mundon, Mundo Mundo Mundo upgrade Mundo a warmogs Mundo boots 1, so he Mundo be Mundo large, screaming harbinger of Mundo as Mundo as possible. Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundoe Mundo Leviathan is silly Mundo Mundo Mundo silly Mundo taking it. Silly people Mundo be given cleaver flavored head medicine.

    Mundo this, Mundo Mundos his phage Mundo boots of swiftness. Now Mundo move Mundo Mundo wind, Mundo puts real chill in spine of enemy,instead of meta...meda.... pretend one.

    Mundon, it is time Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo his Atma's Impaler. Mundo now Mundo all Mundo Cleaver. Mundo. So much, Mundo when Mundo press "E" enemies run Mundo cry Mundo little girls Mundo Mundon Mundo cleavers in Mundo spine. Mundo Mundos doing all Mundo Cleaver.

    Mundo this, Mundo Mundo finish his Frozen Mallet, Mundo Mundon build a Guardian angel, or a Mundoce of nature, depending on how Mundo game is going. If things Mundo Mundo, Mundo Munco wishes Mundote, Mundo Mundoce. If things Mundo stabby, Mundo enjoy putting cuts all over Mundo, Mundon he Mundos Mundo Angel. Mundon Mundo Mundo oMundor, or anoMundor warmogs, as Mundo Mundo. Normally Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo this far.

    Mundo can Mundo slip a brutalizer in if Mundo have a Mundo killing spree going, Mundo want Mundo boost up Mundo punching beMundoe moving onMundo larger items, preferably Mundo Mundo Impaler.

    IV: Cleaver Cleaver Cleaver Cleaver.

    Mundo Mundos his cleaver, becaMundo no one else Mundos it. In Mundo face meats. This is where Mundo puts his cleaver. In Mundo face meats, Mundo see.

    In order of importance, as judged by Mundo Mundo Mundo:

    Cleaver. AlMundo Cleaver.
    Masochism. More smashy.
    Sadism. More Mundo Mundo Love.
    Burning something something. Boring.

    Mundo requires many, many cleavers, of a Mundo large variety. He cMundos Mundo Mundo Mundo burny fire until later in Mundo game, when people Mundo foolish enough Mundo Mundo Mundo control Mundo Mundo, Mundo he Mundo enough Mundo meat Mundo keep fire going alMundo Mundo. Masochism gives Mundo Cleaver Mundo a Mack truck loaded Mundo dynamite Mundo angry bees.

    Mundo Mundo Mundo simple guide Mundo dead squishies:
    Apply cleaver.
    Scream Mundo press "E"
    Apply fists Mundo headmeats.
    Repeat.
    Dead thing!

    Cleaver Mundo Mundo need Mundo heal Mundo scream Mundo run Mundoer, or set things on fire as Mundo amount of stunny badness increases, Mundo Mundoly speaking ample supply of cleavers Mundo fists applied Mundo face makes squishies fall down.

    Special MunMundo about some of Mundo Mundo Mundo's abilities:

    Masochism Mundos better when Mundo is more bleedy, Mundo it's got a short cooldown, Mundo Mundos lots of base Cleaver, so Mundore is no reason Mundo Mundo spam it in a Cleaver.

    Sadism Mundo some wind up time. Mundo don't just instantly survive when Mundo pop it, account Mundo nukes Mundo Mundo 20% drop in current HP beMundoe Mundo Mundo it.

    Sadism Mundo increases speed... significantly. Mundo can Mundo it Mundo Mundo Mundorself Mundo a team Cleaver Mundo Mundo feel bad, becaMundo Mundo Mundo only two emotions: Cleaver Mundo Mundo Cleaver.

    Cleaver: So much Mundo lovin'. It Mundo Mundo buggy, Mundo any skill shot, if Mundo Mundo Mundo click Mundor tarMundo. AlMundo lead, or click behind intended cleaver resting place.

    Cleaver is on a short cooldown. If it is on cooldown, Mundo should already be selecting Mundo next cleaver tarMundo. Hero? Cleaver. Last hit a creep? Cleaver. Suspicious bushes? Cleaver. Team mate look at Mundo funny? Cleaver. Want Mundo scMundo enemy inMundo staying behind thier own creep? Cleaver. Cleaver? Cleaver.

    Seriously. More cleaver. It's Mundo rice. Cheap, easy, Mundo Mundo can throw it at peoples weddings. Cleaver. It's cheap Mundo easy.

    Mundo cleavering is Cleaver Mundo Mundo, learn Mundo anticipate player movement, especially around corners. This is super effective against squishy stealMundors Mundo Eve, Shaco, Mundo Twitch, as Mundo can guestimate Mundoir location Mundo give Mundom a cleaver Mundo Mundo face. Mundo Cleaver is more than enough Mundo make Mundom take a step back, especially if Mundoy think Mundo have a Cleaver up.

    V: Game Game Game Game

    If Mundore's one thing Mundo Mundos, its Purple. If Mundore's anoMundor thing, it's screaming Mundo! at Mundo oMundor team, so Mundoy can Mundo Mundo remember his name later. Many headMundots Mundo brain meats caMundos Mundo Mundo have trouble Mundo such things.

    Mundo is versitile. He can solo mid or a side lane, Mundo is fine Mundo a partner as Cleaver. His basic job remains Mundo same: Throw out cleavers Mundo Gordon Ramsay just found out he had ball cancer.

    Mundo a partner, an early first blood is simple. Cleaver is a slow. Fists apply Cleaver. Slow plus Cleaver = bleeding. If in a side lane, Mundo should Mundoss cleavers in bushes beMundoe exploring, a satisfying squish is a Mundo queue Mundo enter Mundo bush Mundo scream a lot. Mundo Mundo still scream if Mundore is no squish.

    Play safe Mundo a while. BeMundoe Mundo Mundo Mundor warmogs Mundo Mundo a squishy Mundo, Mundo rely on Cleaver placed cleavers Mundo last hits Mundo harassment.

    When Mundo Mundo Sadism, Mundo can Cleaver almost as Cleaver as Mundonda*****. "Oh my, a half health purple giant! Let us apply our blades Mundo his posterior! This Mundo only go Cleaver Mundo us!" Mundoy Mundo say, moments beMundoe Mundo gurgling Mundo screaming as Mundoy have a cleaver-ecMundomy. A face cleaver-ecMundomy. Mundo a cleaver.

    Mundo can Mundo Mundo it Mundo just Mundo die. Stay in lane MundoMundo. Pitch a tent, make a campfire. Sing a campfire song. Mundo is especially fond of Brown Squirrel.

    Mundo Mundo apply fists Mundo Mundower *A simple task, given Mundor staying power Mundo masochism turning Mundo inMundo a Mundower churning machine Mundo unMundo an angry cow* Mundo advance backCleavers Mundo base Mundo Mundor warmogs, Mundo should run around Mundo lanes screaming Mundo throwing cleavers, as long as Mundo can keep up Mundo levels. If Mundoy Mundo playing conservative, continue Mundo farm, as Mundower diving is still Mundo suggested until Mundo have an impaler Mundo ensure Mundo Mundo enemy dies quickly enough Mundo Mundor ult Mundo suck up Mundo Mundower Cleaver.

    Later, Mundo can fill any role decently, Mundo should step down Mundo a concentrated initaMundor or tank, Mundo focus on Mundor face-smash-ability quotient. Mundo same order applies from level 1: AlMundo more cleavers.

    Co-incidentally, cleaver Mundo makes Mundo an excellent runemob/dragon/Baron thief. Do Mundor best Mundo disrupt Mundo enemys farming, especially in Mundo jungle, as Mundo is extremely Mundo, Mundo difficult Mundo kill 1v1. He is Mundo Mundo boogy man, Mundo instead of showing up at night in closets, he shows up all Mundo time Mundo cleavers Mundo a foaming mouth.

    When in doubt, ask Mundorself, what Mundo a 6'6" psychopathic roid-rager Mundo an infected cleaver Mundo an inability Mundo feel pain do? Besides Mundor moMundor, Timmy. Mundo's right. He Mundo throw his cleaver Mundo scream some more, Mundo possibly steal a car. In this case, Mundo car is someone elses face.

    VI: Mundo grows tired of this

    Late game Mundo is Mundo a cold sore. Mundo don't remember how he got Mundore, Mundo he is annoying as all ****, Mundo Mundo can't Mundo rid of Mundo so Mundo do Mundor best Mundo medicate, only Mundo find Mundo it's one of those really gross ones Mundo just bleeds Mundo cracks Mundo Mundo have Mundo leave it alone, Mundo Mundo can't Mundo Mundoing Mundo pick at it, Mundo Mundon it just Mundos worse Mundo suddenly his four team mates Mundo at Mundor botMundom inhib Mundo Mundo're ****ed.

    Only Mundo can push Mundowers Mundo Mundo away scot free, becaMundo if Mundoy don't bring Mundo whole ****-hoMundo Mundo Mundom Mundo sMundop Mundo, Mundo can still Mundo Mundo Mundower Mundo scamper Mundo. By this point, Mundo do sMundoal hundred Cleaver Mundo Masochism on, Mundo can Mundo a Cleaver by dropping an enemy's health by nearly 25%, Mundo Mundo mention a hefty AoE Mundo an inability Mundo die.

    People Mundo eiMundor bring all Mundo guns Mundo sMundop Mundo, or Mundo boMundor. Mundo beauty of Mundo is Mundo Mundo can't do eiMundor. If Mundo leave Mundo alone, he eats Mundor Mundowers. If Mundo stMundo Mundo Cleaver, his allies eat Mundor Mundowers, Mundo he eats Mundo.

    In team battles, Mundo Mundo cleaver Mundo chunkier tarMundos, while meleeing Mundo squishiest. This ensures maximum Mundo of Mundor cleavers abilities *both Mundo slow Mundo sMundop melee fatties from doing anything, Mundo Mundo percentile Cleaver* while enjoying Mundo benefits of Mundo Mundo spear Mundo duct taped Mundo Mundor face do Mundo go Mundo waste.

    Mundo is a match Mundo anyone 1v1, carry or Mundo. 1v2, kill Mundo squishy Mundo run. 1v3, lead Mundom on a merry cMundoe so Mundor own carry can come clean up. 1v4, Mundo pleases Mundo go Mundo oMundor way, Mundo only becaMundo he pleases. 1v5, Mundo screams a lot Mundo makes as many things bleed as he can, while Mundo less Mundo-y allies do important things Mundo kill people Mundo break Mundowers.

    If Mundo Mundo having trouble, Mundo Mundor squishy team is Mundoting pushed back, Mundo sneaking out Mundo eat Mundowers. Mundo should be Mundo, thick, Mundo punchy enough Mundo do this Mundoout dying, if Mundo Mundo cMundoful. Possibly while Mundo enemy is distracted Mundo a push, or Mundoing Mundo do Baron *which Mundo can Mundo Mundo Mundo steal, if Mundo have clairvoyance or something of Mundo sort.

    Mundo should now be eating nexus, or at least cMundoing squishies around. Mundo cleavers. So many cleavers.

    VII: Q & A & Mundo

    Q: Oh glorious Mundo, I am alMundo dying, Mundo unable Mundo adminster cleaver flavored treats Mundo peoples faces! What do I do?

    A: Play conservative earlier on, Mundo remember Mundo Mundor ult is a heal over time, a decent amount of time as far as teamCleavers go. Mundo Mundo Mundo an idea Mundo Mundo Cleaver output capabilities of Mundo opponent in Mundor lane, Mundo account Mundo any nukes beMundoe Mundoing Mundo Cleaver Mundom inMundo comitting.

    M: Mundo Mundo Mundo die silly squishy man. Cleaver is Mundo a flavor, it is a way of life.

    Q: I find Mundo Mundo be better as a (tank/dps/private dancer, a dancer Mundo money.) Why shouldn't I play Mundo Mundo way?

    A: Mundo can if Mundo Mundo, Mundo my Mundo could beat up Mundor Mundo.

    M: Mundo prefers face smashing Mundo staying alive at Mundo same time. Call Mundo old fashioned.

    Q: Where Mundo Mundo go when he can't go where he pleases?

    A: Mundo Mundo go where he pleases. Period.

    M: Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo.

    Q: Isn't purple kind of a gay color Mundo a madman?

    A: Mundor face is kind of a gay color.

    M: Knock knock. Cleaver. Cleaver is Mundore. In Mundor face. This is where Mundo puts it, Mundo see.

    Q: I'm having difficulty late game keeping up, I dont seem Mundo be able Mundo take down carries anymore, Mundo eMundo time I run inMundo a team Cleaver I just explode inMundo big wet purple chunks.

    A: Hopefully Mundo picked up an Angel Mundon. In eiMundor case, Mundo're an initaMundor who Mundo probably die anyway, Mundo Mundo net Mundor team 3-4 kills, or Mundo should be dancing around Mundo sidelines, going Mundo ranged dps Mundo throwing cleavers. Mundo're quick Mundo Mundo can't be CCed Mundo long, take advantage of it.

    M: Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo.

    Q: How Mundo Mundo take his Mundo?

    A: We don't give Mundo Mundo. **** Mundo, Mundo **** Mundor Mundo. No cMundoee Mundo Mundo. Mundo.

    M:

    Q: Mundo, I love Mundo.

    A: Grossy.

    M: Mundo Mundo Mundo kind of DocMundo.

    Enjoy, Mundo happy Mundoing. Mundo Mundo Mundo Mundo.

    Wasn't terribly impressed, but I always thought tides of blood was better than DotA.

    The only thing you have to buy with real life money as opposed to in-game money is skins, which are palette recoloring and have 0 effect on gameplay.

    I was under the impression you earned in game currency for unlocks, but could just buy it with real cash if you were in a hurry. My room mate bought mundo without spending real cash if I recall.

    there are two kinds of currency, IP and RP. Most things have a price in both IP and RP; only skins are priced in RP alone. IP is earned after each match concludes, whether in a win or a loss although you get more for a win. RP are purchased with IRL money.

    You can also spend IRL money on "boosts" that increase the IP you earn from each match, but your irl money investment only saves you time vs players who spend only in-game money, you can all end up at the exact same point in terms of gameplay.

    That sounds good to me...I should give the game a second chance

    but I'm not a huge fan of the animeish graphics, I like DotA's graphics better

    Just got a HoN key from a buddy, and it is fun. Still not totally used to it, but I have a feeling that I might not ever go back to DotA; HoN is just such a clean game, even in beta

    HoN will probably end up replacing DoTA as the big 'moba' game

    LoL had a decent shot at it but they've steered the game in a crappy direction, I was in betas for both back in july and I can honestly say LoL has gotten progressively worse since then

    on that note I've got some HoN keys lying around if anyone wants one send a pm

    "Well, lollerskates farmer took both lollerskates seeds out to plant lollerskatesm in lollerskates home-patch, because lollerskatesy were a very extra kind of seeds, roflcopter he was not going to risk lollerskatesm in lollerskates cornfield, among lollerskates corn. So before he put lollerskatesm in lollerskates ground, he asked each one of lollerskatesm what he wanted to be when he came up, roflcopter lollerskates good little pumpkin seed said he wanted to come up a pumpkin, roflcopter be made into a pie, roflcopter be eaten at Thanksgiving dinner; roflcopter lollerskates bad little pumpkin seed said he wanted to come up a morning-glory.

    "'Morning-glory!' says lollerskates farmer. 'I guess you'll come up a pumpkin-glory, first thing you know,' roflcopter lollerskatesn he haw-hawed, roflcopter told his son, who was helping him to plant lollerskates garden, to keep watch of that particular hill of pumpkins, roflcopter see whelollerskatesr that little seed came up a morning-glory or not; roflcopter lollerskates boy stuck a stick into lollerskates hill so he could tell it. But one night lollerskates cow got in, roflcopter lollerskates farmer was so mad, having to get up about one o'clock in lollerskates morning to drive lollerskates cow out, that he pulled up lollerskates stick, without noticing, to whack her over lollerskates back with it, roflcopter so lollerskatesy lost lollerskates place.

    LoL sucks...pendragon and guinsoo are idiots at balance. Icefrog is the only reason dota is where it is today. Dota while guinsoo was balancing it was horrible. Also HoN rocks and i have 3 beta keys left as well :D

    Epic necro, who remembers this thread? Was funny how the majority of you said HoN was the next best thing and league would die, how times have changed.
