Immediately I want to introduce to you one of the successful free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!
League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), which is oriented in the direction of the well-known Warcraft 3 - Map "Protection of the Ancients".
For many who by no means performed DotA (are there any?) and who don't know the game concept I will explain it in detail:
League of Legends would not put high requirements on your PCs. You want a minimum of:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.zero capable video card, - 750 MB free exhausting disk area, - DSL or related
Create an account either on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on the place you live. You can even create an account on US while living in Europe however you'll expertise greater pings then. I offer you a link to create an account in my author's bio. Choose a name (all the time the toughest half) and a nice picture and off you go!
There are 2 groups 5 players (there are extra game modes, but they are not important in the beginning because as a newbie it's best to start with 5vs5 to be taught the gameplay). Earlier than each match you all choose a "champion" who's the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant on your private preferendes it may be e.g. an undead mage, a large granite golem, just a little boy using on a Yeti, a brave knight and plenty of more.All in all there are greater than 80 (!) different champions and every second week one is added.
Each champions has four completely different skills (3 normal and one further strong, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has for the reason that beginning. You be taught the skills by leveling up ingame and your max champion stage is eighteen which suggests that you've 5 points in each regular means and 3 in your ultimate.
You obtain expertise for levelling up by:
1. Being close to 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 typically play no matter you like, later it's helpful to communicate along with your teammembers earlier than the match begins so that you have a balanced setup and never 5 champions of the same kind.
The completely different sorts of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means capability power, they primarily deal magical damage with their abilities)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Harm, they primarily deal bodily damage with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They are arduous to kill and defend their own carries, for instance by beautiful or taunting the enemies)
4. Helps (They've both buffs or heals to help their carries and preserve them alive)
5. Junglers (They do not begin within the lane however in the jungle and support their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The attention-grabbing level is: Relying on the items you equip on your champions they're usually able to meet different roles!
To start with you don't have own champions, however every week there are 10 free ones which everybody can use. After some matches you should purchase more champions with influence factors (IP) within the shop. I'll come to this later.
The map has 3 different lanes, which lead from your personal to the enemy base. On these lanes there are several Towers which you could destroy before you may assault the base itself. As a support your primary constructing ("Nexus") spawns minion waves briefly intervals which assist you in fights. Between the lanes there's the "jungle", the place impartial monsters are located. For those who kill these you obtain gold and/or momentary buffs.
As soon as the match begins everyone has a few minute to spend his beginning capital on gadgets within the shop.
This does not take lengthy since you do not have a lot gold in the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold within the game:
1. Everyone receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or impartial monsters (here it is very important give them the ultimate blow, the so called "lasthitting")
3. Killing or helping to kill enemy champions
4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)
5. There are a number of items which grant you extra income (the so called gold/5 gadgets -> they give you 1 gold each 5 seconds)
When you destroy the enemy major building (Nexus) your team wins. For being able to attack the Nexus, nonetheless, you must destroy all three towers and the inhibitor on a minimum of one lane and the 2 towers which defend the Nexus. So it's not the best idea to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 should you don't push the lanes on the identical time. An average match takes 30-45 minutes, not often greater than an hour. As soon because the match reaches minute 20 additionally it is doable to surrender.
More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") the place it's a must to seize and defend sure points. In addition there are ranked modes for players with summoner level 30 (clarification follows) wherein you receive an Elo depend relying in your wins and losses. For learners I highly suggest the traditional 5vs5 map!

of Legends also has an RPG part. You do not only choose a name and a picture for yourself (you're a so known as "summoner", don't mix it up with the "champions") but you might be also able to stage up your self and purchase small buffs with Influence Factors (IP).
