League of Legends - More information for people who've never heard of it/DotA
League of Legends is a game based off of a popular Warcraft 3 mod called Defense of the Ancients. Basically, each team has 5 people who pick a hero. This hero gains levels, and gets 4 spells to fight with. The goal is to push into the enemies base and destroy their main building. How is this done? Well every 30 seconds monsters are sent out of your base into 3 lanes. You attack with these monsters to destroy the enemy towers to push into the main base. However, it isn't that easy. You'll also be facing enemy heroes in the lanes whose trying to do the same exact thing you are. So how do you get the upper hand on them? Kill them. The game isn't about a K:D ratio, so all killing a enemy does is deny him the experience/gold he needs to level up and get stronger. So normally, you don't attack to kill. You attack to hurt them enough so they can't stay in the lane to gather experience/gold. I find that it's a fun game that every one should try at least once.
