When playing LoL you are prone to being called a "shitnoonb" and if you dare mention the word FUN you will be raged to death.

found out about this comic last night, and read through the whole thing before work today. Great stuff!

The community on LoL is about par for what I see of online games. The trick to getting good/enjoying it is like your TF2 "it gets better" comic. Find a core group to play with and learn from!

LoL... is bothersome. Sometimes you get a good team, sometimes you get a bad team. Sometimes you get the latter but kick ass. Sometimes you get the former and it's a bad game and you feed.
Recently LoL has been, IMO, flip a coin. Heads they win and tails you lose. Such bad luck T_T

I play constantly, and it definitely takes a certain breed. If you can ignore people hating you for being different ("different = bad" to most players), then it's a great game. (Protip: never play ranked, it has more ego-centric jerks.) If you can't see a game being worth lots of verbal abuse, pass.

yeah, same story for me with LoL i hated it, but my friends insited and i got tired of their complaints and after a while i got into it.
i guess its a game that grows on you, i play it more than tf2 now just because more of my friends have LoL and friends is the key to starting LoL

Hey, LoL is not a hard game, but you need friends to learn it. If you want, just add me ingame and we play together. It's easy, you well see.

yeah... don't worry. It was the same story for me in DoTA, which is what the game is based off. It took me at least 1 year to get the ropes of the game, with out a practice mode. Then another year to at least get decent at it. Yeah... stay away from the DoTA/HoN/LoL community. They ain't nice.

Playing a jungler generally seems to be the easiest learning curve since it makes it more difficult for you to be a feeder. Playing a tanky jungler such as Nunu helps out even further.

If you have friends who play it, they are a big help to getting you ahead of the learning curve. I feel bad that you had a bad experience with the community.

E pensar que isso vem do criador de uma das minhas webcomics favoritas. Lembra da sua página, "It gets better"? É só uma questão de treino, como no TF2. No começo você pode ser ruim, muita gente pode te criticar, mas se você se manter firme em jogar, o jogo fica muito mais legal!

I just recently started it and I'll be honest, it's very fun, to me anyway. But I don't really have that many friends who play it, and I don't mind people who are new, but the people who ACT like they know it, then blame others because they rushed in alone instead of being with the group. Let em die

I play LoL on an almost daily basis, I actually drafted half my WoW Guild to play it, and now post-WoW we still do. Word to the wise, you NEED to learn to play with friends unless you have a high tolorance for fail. I played from 1-10 in custom games, then taught my friends in customs directly.

LoL gets exponentially more fun the more people you know on your team. Get a couple of friends together on ventrilo or skype. Check out the leaguecraft.com champion guides. It gets better when you know what your champ can do. Also, LoLs userbase has far less raging teenagers than HoN.

I hate DOTA for one sole reason: Dota created a genre called DOTA clones. There goes all the innovative potential of S2 Games. Dropped the awesomeness of Savage 2 (fun, innovative title) in favour of HoN, a boring, run of the mill clone. Do not want.

LoL is a really fun and varied game with a horrible, horrible community. If I could lose a single game without being called every racial slur in existence, I might recommend more people to it. I just hope something new comes out that I want to play so that I have an excuse to stop playing this.

My best advice- play for the lulz, don't get too serious in it if you don't want to. Take the advice and resources other people suggest (used my LoL username for this btw), read a guide on a hero you fancy, and play bots until you think you can take on players. PS. I agree. DAT SKINNED ASHE x,x;
Kelinas
over 13 years ago
Simply put, most of the reason LoL players at the top are extremely lethal is due to constant hours 'wasted' reading up on items, skills, and field tests on bots various item builds, rune combinations, and mastery setups with each hero, until they find something they like. CONT again...

I used to suck a lot at LoL. On the other hand, I've shot for more supportive casters such as Soraka and Sona most my playthrough. Kog's the one I fit with the best when it comes to offense, and it took me forever and the help of a friend obsessed with the game to help get me a build I like. CONT.

LoL is really a game that should be played multiplayer from the start. At low levels you learn a great deal more from playing against real people, and people are way more forgiving. If you leveled up in practice, then went to multiplayer at a higher level... that would suck... badly.

The problem with LoL is that people smurf all the time, high leveled players with like 1,000 games under the belt just make new accounts in 5 seconds and beat up on newbs quite often for an ego boost.

Sadly enough, i'd say more then half the new players are all people who suck at being lvl 30

Level 30 with around 400 wins here. Never take your teammates seriously in LoL, especially if you're low level. Play, have fun, and screw people who complain about new players. Everyone has to start somewhere.
Besides, normal games aren't even ranked.
Geary

Jo, I suggest you keep an eye (tentacle?) on the updates, as they're going to implement a Co-Op vs. AI soon, if not on the next patch. Also, a plus is that they patch the game a LOT, so you won't be going a month with a game-breaking bug caused by the previous patch.

If you want to end friendships, there's no easier way than League of Legends.

Just simply get all of your friends to play LoL together on the same team for a few weeks. You'll be fist fighting in no time flat!
Maphysto
over 13 years ago
The basics of LoL:
1. Know when to run for it. It's better to get no kills than to feed.
2. Call MIA. Pay attention to the minimap, and if your lane opponents are missing, they're prolly setting up a gank.
3. Play every champ. Knowing how they play means knowing how to counter them.

MoBA all have mean learning curves. LoL's is actually one the most forgiving. Bots, templates, and recommended items all help with that.

If you hate one and like the other, it mostly means you just suck with their heroes and never bothered to learn the game.

It gets better if you play with friends or get in the higher win brackets (high elo).

When you are under lvl 30, just enjoy it. Maybe read a guide on some char you think is cool for some basics. You will really do better when you read about other champs, in particular ones that are stomping you.

This is how you get good at LoL:

Install HoN/WC3 Dota. Suck at it for about 2 weeks.

Go back to LoL. Instantly godlike!

I stopped playing poorly at this game and other DoTA games by just having a hero guide to Alt-Tab to, do try it, its makes a big difference. There are loads of good hero guides for both LoL, HoN, DoTA. For LoL in particular I would recommend Leaguecraft for guides.

Meh, I play, but it's one of the worst balanced games to ever make it out of beta. Only fun for lols. Riot seems to put very little effort into balancing champion abilities or summoner skills- the fact that you have a group of consistently banned "OP champs" in ranked games speaks volumes.

As far as LoL goes, my personal favorites are Amumu, Cho'Gath, and Blitzcrank. Especially Blitzcrank.

I love to play Urgot as well, but I only play him with a premade, since randoms seem to think he's a TANK for some ungodly reason. Yes he gets a shield and a defense/MR buff, but he's not a TANK.

Yeah, DotA/LoL/HoN can be total ass-fests if you're not used to playing them. Best thing to do, as has been said, is just play with friends to learn the ropes. Most importantly, figure out how you like to play. Melee or Ranged? Magic or Physical? DPS or Tank?

I've been playing LoL for a while now, and certainly have had my share of RAEG. Part of it comes from being stuck with someone for at least 20 mins and you know 5-10 mins in usually to tell what's going to happen (though I've had my surprises).

A good portion of LoL and HoN players have years of experience playing the DOTA map for WC3. So they expect people who try these games out to have some understand or to atleast have played with friends. From my view point I had many noobs join my games not even knowing the basics.Learn to play first
