anyone play any of these two games, I know both of them are based on the custom game from World of Warcraft III called DOTA.... I learned about the League of Legends one from someone at school then the other blade from bf2s forums told me about the Heroes of Newerth which resembles Wow III Dota more after watching some videos, I played the League one and it seems they deviated too far from the Dota game not game play wise, but hero wise they implemented new heroes which dont resemble any of the heroes from Warcraft 3 ...

MOD EDIT: title revamped, but essentially the same -un13

HoN has to have the worst community of all time.

Played in the CB and got bored.

They're not going to top the team that made Savage 1, if this is the same Newerth.

It is not World of Warcraft III, just Warcraft III.


Personally played both but Heroes seemed a lot better, League of Legends was annoying with the hero unlocking thing and such. HoN is really annoying with me the PSR etc. People really judge way too much by the numbers.

I have to agree, the community isn't all that great.

But it's still a fun game imo. Even though I'm mediocre at best aha.

Bump:
League of Legends is free to play now:
http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/?ref=4c34d6179a4ca
Very entertaining gameplay, particularly for free.
(Thats my referral link, if you feel like using it (no downside) I get skins and so forth in game, other wise use this link:
http://www.leagueoflegends.com/
Players are formed into 2 even teams with 1-5 champions on each team. Each team starts at opposing sides of a map, near what is called a "Nexus". A match is won when either the opposing team's Nexus is destroyed or the other team surrenders. To destroy a Nexus, each team must work through a series of towers called "Turrets". Turrets are often placed along a path to each base referred to as a "Lane". Along the way, each player must gain levels from killing the opposing team's "Champions" and "Minions" (small NPCs that constantly spawn and attack the other team) and defeating neutral monsters (some of which grant buffs upon death). Also, champions purchase "Items" with in-match gold to improve their champion. In League of Legends, each player starts at level 1 at the beginning of the match and can obtain the maximum of level 18 with their champion, leveling 4 different champion-specific abilities.

Yeah LoL wasn't very interesting to me at first, but the more I played it and found better builds for champions, the more addicting it became.

Yeah learning curve is steep, but for a free game it's pretty damn fun.

What champs are people using? I'm switching between Annie/Garen atm.

I can't wait for shen or rammus to get on free rotation so I can try them out.

Also is the solo queue matchmaking retarded or something? If I'm ever winning more than 50% of my games the system just puts me with a team of level 10's against a whole team of lvl 20's. Most games we either roll them or we get completely rolled.

What's with the leveling system? It sounds like a pretty terrible idea.

There's 10 free champs to play each week which get rotated and there's a total of 60 champs. You earn in-game currency just by playing games which you can use to unlock champs that you like permanently. It takes like 4 wins to unlock the cheapest champs but 60+ to get the expensive ones so don't buy till you're sure you want someone. Also everything is purchaseable by cash if you are so inclined.

What I did was to go through all the free champs each week and found someone I liked- this week heimerdinger is probably the most noob-friendly- then just practice that champ for a week. Stay in your lane and farm the shit out of it, last-hitting all low healthed creeps. The best way a new player can contribute to a game is not dieing, pushing your lane, and telling your team when the opponent in your lane goes missing.

Also play with friends. I'm solo queuing a lot and it's just depressing when your team has no sync at all.

Yeah it's a shitty system but thankfully doesn't make a huge difference. Generally it means higher level players have better runes and they've got all 30 points of mastery already.

The runes usually have a really small effect; I'm level 15 and mine give my champ a +2% dodge, +6 armour penetration, -1.5% cooldown and +18 health (you start a game with almost 500hp at level 1 and gain like 70+ a level). A level 30 player with a full page of tier 3 runes would probably have triple my rune buffs so it's still not an earth-shattering difference compared to a level 1 player. Being good/experienced is still the determinant in 99% of fights.

Also if you do sign up my in-game name is Aries37, add me!
