Correcting the other definitions, Riot Games did not make the original DotA in Warcraft III, they just modded the DotA map that was created by Eul.
Bob: You mean that Dota ripoff? No thank you
Tim: Its not a ripoff, LoL is much better gameplay-wise
Bob: I guess I'll try it
Soon after his first game, Bob becomes a dedicated League of Legends player.
This game also consists of a rating system that is equivalent to a 1v1 match, but the catch is that it is a team game of 3v3 and 5v5. No matter how hard you try, carrying noobs in this game is almost like taking a shit while constipated, its not going to happen. Unless you are like extremely lucky. ELO Hell is the place all the baddies go cause they suck,and where the some goodies go cause the baddies couldn't be carried. ELO Heaven is where all the non-baddies go.
Jesse: "Fak this game, the rating system isn't accurate, GG feeder noobs, you can't carry them, its too hard!"
The conversation before a ranked match-
NoobLord: "i Wana mid!"
thePro: "I don't think you should first pick into mid, you will get counter-picked"
NoobLord: "stfu noob i want mid, now im gonna feed and QQ afk"
People who call roles they can't play-
lol4lyfenoob: "ADC BOT!"
(later that match)
lol4lyfenoob: "gg noob jungler wont gank bot!"
derpmasterPro: "You are 0/12, and are pushing constantly, don't blame the jungler cause you suck, and don't call roles you can't play!"
Riot Games are the creators. This is a free to play online game that has an in game store that you can spend real money on if you wish to. You can not purchase "runes" because they are to be earned through game play so the rich and poor are at the same level of skill while playing.
Actually if you buy the Collectors pack it comes with a few runes.
The game name is shortened to LoL.
Again it is a free game.
person2: "Lets pwn some noobs."
Although it is free, so perhaps that's not as big an accomplishment as it sounds, but free or not, many people pay money to get skins for their favorite characters. Anything you buy with real money besides skins, you can get with the in game currency as well, so there is no disadvantage on people who don't pay.
The genre is hard to explain, but is a somewhat rare one, known as a MOBA. This means Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. The goal of the game is to fight your way into the opponent's base and destroy their "Nexus". I put it quite simply, but the average game takes around 40 minutes, and has quite a bit to it.
This game has an extremely huge learning curve of anywhere from 2-10 hours for most people, sometimes more. In order to become good at the game, it takes several weeks, although it is more casually oriented.
For those not interested in casual play, this game was featured at Dreamhack with a $100,000 USD prize pool in June 2011, where several teams fought in competition for the prize.
It is a very fun game, but not something many people can just pick up.
Short and simple go play DotA 2
Faggot 2: yea dud maybe we can circle jerk 2 lololol cause we're VFL
So the game basically just sucks hairy penises.
°No, I'd rather kill myself than playing that shit!
Colin: Dude, this is great, lets gank that guy.
Tyler:Dude Jared's totally going to kill him in League of Legends.
Jared: Dude, i so got him. Im just like straight up chiefin the chop BFE. Penta kill!
Everyone: League of Legends is so chill.
