[IndustryGamers] League of Legends: 32.5 Million Players - Page 3

The very recent inflation is because of Dominion. People love it.

I tried really hard to like LoL, since half of my friends I constantly play games with are into LoL... but it's just not as appealing as HoN unfortunately. Especially the visuals. In HoN you see what kind of spell is being cast and what's going on, but in LoL it's just chaos.

I played LoL for quite a long time, but I quit because the community is one of the worst I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. It's like the moment your summoner hits level 30, you get into a super secret club of jerks... even my friends are not immune, and that makes me sad. Though, watching then seriously rage over you picking a mana potion over a health potion is hilarious. Just remember kids, it's only a game smile.gif

If you can keep your sanity while playing this game, more power to you!

They make ALOT of bank off this game. It's crazy how many people buy all the champs and all the costumes for them.

I haven't even tried the new map. I got burnt out on it playing the same 2 maps forever. They waited a little too long for that and pretty much lost all my interest...they were too busy going champ release crazy and selling em like hotcakes. It's cool that they have all these champs and all, but it would be alot better to have more maps...would make the tournaments alot more interesting to have more diversity and coin tosses on maps.

Good for them though wink.gif

I find it to be the opposite. While I will agree that HON looks "prettier", a lot more going on with the spells and everything, I find it all very distracting. LOL's bright color pallet doesn't over do it but still allows you to quickly see what is going on at a glance.

The biggest problem with all of the games is the very high learning curve. Not in mechanics, but in all the information you have to process. What each item does, what each Champ/Hero can do.

I don't think you've played it at all : / it's like calling Street Fighter a first person shooter.
If the Wiki definition wasn't enough, LoL is not an MMO, it's an Action RTS. You start off each match at level 1 with no gear and play rounds that 30-45 minutes. The only thing that long-term "grinding" in LoL gets you Mastery, Runes and moar heroes, but those make a minor difference at best at high levels.

The only thing that takes time with LoL is the (rather steep) learning curve of gameplay, strategies and heroes. Some ex-Dota players can basically walk into LoL with a level 1 summoner and start destroying level 30's. I've got my hands full with perfecting just 1-2 heroes for now tongue.gif (AND THE MOUSE MOVEMENT AAARRGHGH)

So yeah, if you're really gifted you can start playing LoL today and be pwning noobs by tomorrow, there is nothing "MMO" about it.

Everything. Many people are willing to try a game for free that they wouldn't pay for. That doesn't mean it is a bad game, obviously a lot of people enjoy it if they are hitting 1.3 million concurrent users, but the only reason they have such a large user base is because the game is free to play. They are making fist loads of money too, we are going to be seeing more and more free to play. I call those types of games Free to Pay though, as many users end up spending more money a free to play game then they do on a regular retail release!

Apparently you've never played it. It's about as far from an MMO as you can get. Think before you spout ignorant crap like this around forums, k?

Runes and masteries make an absolutely MASSIVE difference, especially at high levels. They're one of the top things breaking the game atm.

wow its like you just saw a short trailer of the game, assumed it was an MMO, and then made a misleading and ignorant comment while trying to appear knowledgeable about the game. rolleyes.gif
