Immediately I wish to introduce to you one of the profitable free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!
League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer On-line Battle Enviornment), which is oriented in the direction of the well-known Warcraft 3 - Map "Protection of the Ancients".
For those who by no means performed DotA (are there any?) and who don't know the game concept I'll clarify it in detail:
League of Legends would not put excessive requirements on your PCs. You need at least:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 capable video card, - 750 MB free hard disk area, - DSL or similar
Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on the place you live. You may also create an account on US whereas residing in Europe but you'll experience higher pings then. I give you a link to create an account in my writer's bio. Choose a name (all the time the toughest part) and a nice picture and off you go!
There are 2 groups 5 players (there are more game modes, however they aren't important at first because as a newbie it's best to begin with 5vs5 to be taught the gameplay). Earlier than every match you all choose a "champion" who is the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant on your private preferendes it can be e.g. an undead mage, a giant granite golem, slightly boy riding on a Yeti, a brave knight and many more.All in all there are greater than eighty (!) totally different champions and every second week one is added.
Every champions has four totally different abilities (three regular and one additional strong, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You learn the skills by leveling up ingame and your max champion stage is 18 which means that you've 5 points in each regular potential and 3 in your ultimate.
You obtain expertise for levelling up by:
1. Being near when enemy minions or impartial monsters are killed by your troops (it is not essential to kill them yourself!)
2. killing or aiding to kill enemy champions
To start with you generally play no matter you want, later it is useful to speak together with your teammembers before the match begins so that you've got a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the identical kind.
The completely different kinds of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means skill energy, they primarily deal magical harm with their talents)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Injury, they primarily deal bodily damage with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They're exhausting to kill and protect their own carries, for instance by gorgeous or taunting the enemies)
4. Supports (They've either buffs or heals to support their carries and maintain them alive)
5. Junglers (They don't begin within the lane but in the jungle and assist their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The interesting point is: Relying on the gadgets you equip on your champions they're typically able to meet completely different roles!
In the beginning you don't have personal champions, but each week there are 10 free ones which everybody can use. After some matches you should buy more champions with affect factors (IP) within the shop. I will come to this later.
The map has 3 totally different lanes, which lead from your individual to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you will need to destroy earlier than you may attack the base itself. As a assist your most important constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves in brief intervals which make it easier to in fights. Between the lanes there may be the "jungle", where neutral monsters are located. In case you kill those you obtain gold and/or momentary buffs.
As soon as the match begins everyone has a couple of minute to spend his starting capital on items within the shop.
This doesn't take lengthy since you do not have a lot gold within the beginning. There are other ways to earn gold within the game:
1. Everybody receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or neutral monsters (right here you will need to give them the final blow, the so called "lasthitting")
3. Killing or assisting to kill enemy champions
4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)
5. There are several items which grant you additional revenue (the so known as gold/5 gadgets -> they provide you 1 gold every 5 seconds)
For those who destroy the enemy principal constructing (Nexus) your team wins. For being able to assault the Nexus, however, you have to destroy all 3 towers and the inhibitor on at least one lane and the 2 towers which shield the Nexus. So it's not the best idea to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 if you don't push the lanes at the same time. An average match takes 30-forty five minutes, hardly ever greater than an hour. As soon because the match reaches minute 20 it is also attainable to surrender.
Extra game modes are a 3vs3 and a pretty new domination map ("Dominion") where it's important to seize and defend sure points. In addition there are ranked modes for players with summoner stage 30 (explanation follows) by which you obtain an Elo depend relying in your wins and losses. For beginners I extremely recommend the normal 5vs5 map!

of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You do not only choose a name and a picture for yourself (you are a so referred to as "summoner", do not mix it up with the "champions") but you are also able to level up your self and purchase small buffs with Affect Points (IP).
