    I started playing League of Legends this last December after I saw a mention of it in a thread here on the forums. I'm totally addicted to it, and rejoice every time I play since I know that it is free.

    Anyone else play? I'd love to play with some people from the forums!

    My username is bonfiggy on the US server if anyone is interested. I'm level 23 currently, and typically play Nocturne, Mordekaiser or Heimerdinger.

    My roommate got addicted to it when his friends introduced it to him. I never got into it because the graphics looks very 2D-ish and cartoony for a DotA-like game. Not my style. However, I will give Riot lots of credit for releasing it free and such. I wonder how the indie developer survives their operating costs by releasing the game free.

    They make all their money on in game items and characters. They have about 60-70 characters but you can only play about 7-8 free ones at any given time. So one week you find a character you like and when he goes away for a month they hope you buy them with real money so you can play him anytime. They also have skins to customize your character that are not necessary but cannot be won, must be bought with real money.

    BTW my handle is Peter Bazooka, I usually play weeknights with a few people I know IRL but always looking to play with other people as well.

    I love LoL. The only thing you really need to pay real cash for is character skins....besides that, everything else can be bought with in-game currency earned by playing games. Sign me up!! My id is vdfk.

    I would say they do more than survive: They sold of a major part of their shares to some Chinese company. If they had sold the whole company they would have gotten $350 million for it! :D

    Still inferior to WarIII dota if you ask me. I played it for 1 week maybe and gave up, too sucky graphics, no teamplay and coordination such as dota. And I hate to play with the same heroes all the time. No offense to the players, but it seemed like a really noobish game compared to classic dota, it's just the way I see it.
