League of Legends: 100% Easier to Find

League of Legends is a DoTA (Defense of the Ancients) style game made by some of the people that worked on DoTA Allstars. It's free to play; but, includes augmentations that you can buy with real money or in-game points.

Get on the G&T vent to play with us (list at bottom), the vent info is stickied at the top of the forum.

There's a ton of info on the game, and I don't want to reinvent the wheel. So, check out:
leagueoflegends.com, the game database provided by Riot (who make the game).
leaguecraft.com, there are a lot of fan sites out there with general information and builds. This is just one; and, it's kinda slow as shit. Regardless of where you look for builds keep in mind, most of them make assumptions that are not clearly conveyed and there are a lot that are just plain bad. Tread lightly.
KillerCodeMonkey's wiki, add your brilliant shit to it.
Game mechanic shit, stuff like how attacks and magic and fuck work.
Rune break-dancing, good info about what runes you should buy.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE
HERE'S A LIST OF NERDS WHO ARE BETTER THAN YOU AND ALWAYS WILL BE HAVE FUN WATCHING THEM WHEN YOU COULD BE PLAYING YOURSELF

You better only only look at this shit at work.

THE MOTHER FUCKING CODE
The new code was posted about a page back. It's L R L R D D U U 3 4. It works.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO SPEND REAL CASH DOLLA MONIES FOR CHAMPIONS

Drop $20 for the Retail Box (Amazon, Best Buy, GameSpot, Newegg, Target, and Wal-Mart typically have this) It gives you $10 in Riot Points, take those, then buy $10 in Riot Points and $5 in Riot Points. Spend all of them on the second champ pack.

That's $35 for 40 champs permanently unlocked; none of the post-40 have ever been in a bundle AFAIK.

Q: How can I get champions and save money?
A: You won't have to spend a cent if you simply play games and earn enough IP to buy them all. If, however, you wish to hasten the process you may buy champions with real money. The most cost effective way to buy champions is by purchasing the two bundles on offer.
For $45 you can buy 6380 Riot Points, which are used to buy champions and skins. 3900 of those points gets you the Digital Collector's Pack, which contains 20 champions and includes 1380 Riot Points (huh?). If you were to buy the champions individually it would cost 37800 IP or 9620 RP. The Digital Collector's pack can also be bought in stores or online as a boxed copy, which may save you a significant amount of money.
3410 Riot Points gets you the champions bundle. This contains some more expensive champions. Bought individually they would cost 60750 IP or 14350 RP (ish).
This leaves you with 450 RP, enough to buy yourself a single skin!


I've decided not to deal with updating this obnoxiously coded picture assortment of champions. So go to the LoL wiki for the updated Champion list.


Valiantine has a lovely spreadsheet that you can add your summoner name to.

HEY LISTEN!

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Ap5qFqD3oLKndHNfOGJ1VFNZVVZ6c1NtZVktdXpsTVE&hl=en&authkey=CJPuh4wG#gid=0

I placed everyone's name in the OP to this neat and tidy spreadsheet. You should be able to edit it yourself, find your name and fill the fields. If anyone is getting problems, PM MooMan or VaLiantine, because I don't understand simple spreadsheets.

Here is a video to help improve your laning!

    It's true.

    Yesterday I decided I didn't like my MP5 runes anymore, so I traded them all in and bought new ones.

    Just lost another ranked, 1-7 as Blitz, really not sure what I could have done better. Pantheon and Xin kept jumping at the enemy in team fights so I would have to run in, silence them, knock up their dps and then they ALL focus me, kill me while my team watched.

    I really don't think people know how to engage in this game, if there is even a slight chance that you can kill the enemy, that IS NOT a signal to go for the kill. Trading 1 for 1 doesn't really get you anywhere unless the enemy is incredibly fed but even then that is a bad idea because you are likely defending and need 5 to defend.

    I know blitz is not a good main tank, but I didn't have any other real options. Rammus, Amumu, Shen, Malphite were banned, Cho first picked so that left me with Singed (never played) and Blitzcrank. I do love to crank though so I chose blitz.

    Also, in Zoelef's brags, me and Nisi were laning and roflstomping Gragas and Akali with lollipops and [strike]rainbows[/strike] power fists. I think each of us also had at least one unnecessary death diving at the fountain/nexus double towers. That was a fun game.

    So in first testing, Tear of the Goddess is alright on Singed, but it helps if you crush your lane in the process. Having a Fiddlesticks lane with me was quite potent, especially the second he hit level 6:

    I was playing against a caitlyn in a 2v1 lane, it was Morde and Janna (me) against Caitlyn, she fucking wrecked us. She is very strong 2v1 early game, I mean once I get enough points in shield and zephyr she wasnt a problem but before 6 she is devastating.

    It doesn't seem to matter how well one does with Caitlyn in the lane, though, she will still suck in teamfights :?

    I feel like I'm getting really exceptionally irritated at champion picks today. I think I've run into the following first three picks in three separate matches in the last 24 hours:

    Caitlyn
    Kat
    Ryze

    All insta-lock of course.

    Probably taking things waaay too seriously, but for me, winning is fun, and having a team comp where we're at a huge disadvantage and have to severely outplay the other team to win is kind of not cool with me and I wish people would stop making bad picks.

    Yeah, would be nice if they added quests to one of the new maps too though, spice things up a bit.
