interesting. thanks.

I used to play this game, quit maybe I dunno 6 month ago. The skill cap in this game is just too low to where the point where the whole game is just meta game at the high levels. I personally got up to I believe 16th? on the solo ladder. The queue times to get into games was like 20+ mins and you played versus the same people every game.

I don't play either; I'm just repeating something I've heard over and over and over, from both HoN and LoL players. I'm wondering if the people here share that opinion.

The only real difference is the lack of denying in LoL.

Played with Leona in a bot game yesterday.

She is kinda fun. Went 5/5/19 which is decent because I'm terrible with the learning curve in LoL.

Riot is shutting down the Mac client.

Quote:
Mac beta testers who used the store can keep their accounts open and continue playing on PC, or receive a full refund on their purchases, which would close the account entirely. As consolation, Riot will give all Mac testers a code to unlock the Champions Pack, which can be redeemed if a majority of your logins come from the Mac client and you enter the Store before service is shut down Tuesday.

He was talking about buying with real money. You have to earn the points to buy those.

Masterys are earned though levels and runes can only be obtained by IP.

And even if you could use RP to buy runes you wouldn't be that far ahead of someone who earned their runes via IP.

Nah, it's still very meta based. Tanky DPS top, AP Mid, jungler, support, melee bot.

Meh, every game is different, especially in the sh*tstorm that is Solo Que. He said he played the same people, with super long queue's. I doubt he'd be with them now. The Game has exploded in recent months.

I don't recommend playing versus bots beyond level 5.

You're gonna pick up a ton of bad habits, that will end up costing you real games. Plus, it's kinda boring after a while... No real challenge.

So this is a free game that has extra heroes and stuff you can pay for? Are there only a few free heroes or are most of them free and just the skins cost extra?

Theres a rotation every week of 10 champions that are free for the week

You can purchase all the champions with the points you earn by playing games

The game is free yes but most people that start playing end up buying one thing or another

Okey, I downloaded the game last night because I felt like giving it a try. I used to play DoTa many years ago but haven't really followed the scene of DoTa/HoN/LoL at all.

Shame the closest region to me was North America which means I'll play at a disadvantage from the start (lag).

I subscribed for the 12 issues for both retail and digital but there's no code included in the digital version so i have to jump through hoops to try and get the code from PC Gamer

Yea but like i said i haven't even played any real games in 3 weeks or so

Must have been some old reports still in the tribunal system which kinda sucks

I really need to stop raging at people who can't even tie their shoes by themselves, oh well it's my fault for expecting level 30s to know the game they've played for 200-300 hours at least

I am in a crazy slump at the moment. I can't find my groove with any champion and I lack the IP to buy any new ones.

Purchasing Wukong and Irelia on a whim was pretty stupid, especially considering the former is just a much ****tier version of the latter.
