Now, like I said, I went back to DotA (the not being able to play every hero, "grinding" for them, the silly no-denying concept, etc. was very unappealing from the start for me), but that said, it is definitely great fun once you get into it.

One thing I don't know is if Riot implemented a replay system since I stopped playing, and if there's anywhere I can find some high-end competitive replays to watch (and maybe get my interest going again).
The replay system exists but it's pretty weak. I've seen some games on youtube (such as the ones hosted by DiggitySC who is a great Starcraft commentator) which I know are high level play or big name tournament play.

My next pick up will be Kassadin, who I've been meaning to get since I played him on a free week.

IGN is TwoMinuteViking. I'm Level 28, but I always play with friends who lower levels, so those of you guys just starting can team up with us and get a full 5!
You bought Tristana with IP?

Wanting to try Anivia as well.
Tried out Anivia last night.

Harder to play than Orianna/Brand/Annie (the current top 3 AP carries), so you don't see her very often.

She's really fun though. Good burst and control. Just gotta learn them wall placements...

Razer is having a promotion

http://www.razerzone.com/pax/league-of-legends

Do that 3 times with 3 different emails for 3 Movement Speed quints and 3 Crit damage reds, the Quints by themselves are OVER 6000 IP, don't miss it, they are good runes too very versatile

I'm not sure about replays, but Riot is ALWAYS streaming competitive tournaments and high ELO ranked with the best players in the world on their main site, with running commentary, stats and interviews. It's a helluva lot of fun, and the new Spectator mode is really quite awesome. It teaches you a lot too, watching guys like HotshotGG and Elementz speedbag other high ranked players like they don't know the game.

So pathetic

Just played a few rounds as Teemo and love him now. I just love how most of his abilities are passive since I usually forget to use mine.

On a side note, I had an extra Jax skin from PAX East and threw it up on eBay. I was expecting like $40-50 but the damn thing sold for $117.50!! Next year I'm just going to collect a ton of LoL codes and throw them all on eBay for a ton of money.

My launcher just locked up after finishing a game, then I had a 14 minute queue. Once I waited out the queue, my launcher locked up again. Launched it again, 42 minute queue, then it locked up on me again but this time before the time ran out. I guess they really want me to go study the rest of the night or something.

Yeah, there's some major crash going down.


Also, I've added Urgot to my champ list, finally a ranged AD character that I like.

Server says it's busy when I try to log in. I actually JUST finished a round and I couldn't even get to the stats for the round. I clicked the skip button and got to the client screen but couldn't do anything within it. I hope I got my xp and ip points!

Sometimes. Usually everything is fine. This is the longest I've had to wait. I'd say 75% of the time, no problem. 20% of the time 15 minutes max delay. 5% over 15 minutes wait.

For a free game, you can't ask for much more.

Hundreds of thousands (not exaggerating this number) of people are trying to log in because of recent server crash.

Log ins 90% of time don't have a wait time or que. And even then this is the longest I've had.
