-Volibear Champ Spotlight
-Volibear Patch Notes
-New masteries coming.
-Patch Preview!
-Fizz!

League of Legends (popularly known as LoL) is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game. With lots of acronyms, in case you couldn't tell.

You play as a summoner that selects a champion to battle with and against other summoners and their respective champs. During games, your champion will level up, get gold for better equipment and hopefully destroy the enemy nexus. Outside of games, your summoner level will rise. This will unlock new runes to enhance champion stats, bestow mastery points for further champion customization and goodies like avatars. At max level you can then compete in ranked matches and/or judge player behavior in what is called the tribunal.

New Player Guide

1. Make an account: NA EU (West) EU (Nordic & East)
It is worth noting that referring new players has perks, so I would ask for a referral link in the thread rather than a vanilla account.

2. Download the client: Right here
The official Mac client has been discontinued.

3. Play the tutorials! New User Guide
The game can be a bit overwhelming, and I highly suggest you play the tutorials OR find someone willing to do a few vs. AI games with you.

4. Play vs. AI games with people.
Preferably people you know or from here. The bots aren't bad, but they have exploitable flaws and won't emulate the "real deal" perfectly. Focus less on the opposition and more on getting a feel for the various champions and the general flow of game.

5. Play vs. People
Do it, damn you. As said above, the AI is not going to give you the legitimate LoL experience. You don't want to hit your 20s solely from bot matches.

6. Get yer free champs.
Subscribe to Riot's Youtube and get a free Alistar skin! Includes the champion! Free Tristana if you're into the Facebook thing. Promo skins always include the champion if you never bought it.

The Dos and Don'ts of LoL

Meta Stuff
1. Don't buy champions randomly!
LoL has two currencies: Riot Points (RP), which are bought with real money, and Influence Points (IP) which are earned solely by playing games. Champions can be bought with both, but every week there will be ten free champions to play with. Play these champs instead. Get a feel for each type of champion and see which you find more fun. It's far better to do this as opposed to buying a champ randomly and ultimately being unhappy with it.

2. Don't buy Tier 2 Runes.
They are pretty much a waste of IP. Buy Tier 1 and save up for Tier 3.

3. Do queue with friends.
Playing with randoms is a crapshoot, and playing with a buddy or two can put the odds in your favor. Play complementary champs and request feedback on how you did in each game (even if you won).

4. Do learn the champions
When a new rotation occurs, it is wise to play a few games with each champ. Knowing what each champ is capable of will be useful even if you hate how they play and never intend on using them. For example, Karthus has a skill that does damage to every enemy champion, regardless of location! If you know this, then you can prepare for it and not be taken by surprise.

5. Do read guides.
There are multiple ways to play a champion. This combination of skills, runes, masteries and items is called a "build" and are the general strategies for any champion. The recommended items in the game store are not always accurate, and the order you level skills can have a big impact on how the early stages of the game play out. Sites like Mobafire and Solomid offer builds for just about every champion. It's cookie-cutter, but a great foundation for new people. Once you learn the ins and outs, you can tweak a build to better serve your playstyles or as a reaction to enemy or ally players.

6. Do be polite and do report
Sometimes people will suck or do shit wrong. It's a game, so try to keep that in mind when things get a little unhinged. If you insult or yell at people, even if they DID do something wrong, you're likely going to get that person defensive and things break down. Instead of focusing on the game, you focus on hurling insults at each. Stay calm, and politely offer advice when needed. And yet, people are jerks. It happens. Simply /mute them and quietly report them after the game. Taking their bait is probably what they want you to do. Do not give them the satisfaction! Keep your cool.

Game Stuff
1. Do not be aggressive
There will be a serious urge to want to kill enemy champs. Resist! Death is an all-around loss: your opponents get more cash and experience, you miss out on experience and your lane risks getting pushed. If you set-up a kill and fail, do not continue chasing. In many cases, you will just die to a tower or get ganked. While later on you will learn when to take risks, early in your career it's best to be less aggressive and just let the other guy get away.

2. Do not focus on KDR
Your kill-death-ratio is not the end-all of your value. It is possible to lose despite having a serious kill advantage over the enemy team! Certain champions, once getting the right items, can be unstoppable murder machines. Even if you do kill them a lot, if they reach this threshold, it's possible for a dramatic reversal to occur. It is far more important to support your team's objectives: push towers, protect your own towers from being pushed and keep your team informed of enemy activity. It is far better to have a modest KDR and win, than be the team killer and lose.

3. Do watch the minimap and your enemy
Enemy locations are important! In your low-level games you will likely have two champs tops lane, one mid and two bottom (in later level games, one from top will be off "jungling," so top will have just one champ). If a player in YOUR lane is missing, let the team know. The player might just be heading back to base to buy items, or they could be trying to jump your friend in another lane. And mention when they came back to your lane! But this doesn't mean you should rely wholly on team recon. Watch the minimap yourself for enemy locations in other lanes whenever you can. People aren't perfect, and sometimes that warning comes a bit too late. Another set of eyes is always useful.

4. Do buy wards.
Wards are items that grant you vision of an area for 180 seconds. They are, without a doubt, one of the best purchases you will make. You can plop them along the river and have advance warning of ganks. They'll grant you vision of the brush. They'll alert you of enemy attempts on big-reward neutral monsters like the dragon or baron. If you attack them in the middle of something like that, you could mob up their entire team. Or maybe you are aware of a gank attempt on you. You could alert a nearby friend, bait the ganker in and turn the tables. Buy wards. BUY. WARDS.

5. Do buy wards.

Or maybe you are aware of a gank attempt on you. You could alert a nearby friend, bait the ganker in and turn the tables. Buy wards. BUY. WARDS. Yes, I posted this twice. It is that important.

6. Do something.
So you just wiped the enemy team out. Hooray! But...what are you doing now? Did you just go back to your respective lanes and farm? Incorrect! You now have precious map control, and should be taking advantage of it. Gather up as a team and take out a tower. Head to the dragon and get a clean kill. Steal enemy creeps (especially their blue and red buffs). You can always check the status of both teams by pressing tab. If multiple enemies are waiting on respawn, then you need to press that advantage.

Meet the Team

Like any group activity, stuff is usually broken down into roles. It's worth noting that champions don't always fit neatly in categories. A champion's role in the team may depend on what build has been chosen, and sometimes you may fill several roles depending on the group composition. When picking champions, it's a good idea to see what people are doing and fill in any holes.

1. The Carry: If your team is a car, then the carry is the engine. It's what makes the team function. The carry, when doing its job, will be able to easily destroy the whole team. But, just like an engine is useless without any other parts of your car, the carry relies on its team to get the gold necessary to buy the items needed to kill swathes of enemies. Early on, carries tend to be more vulnerable and weaker than other champs. LOTS of people pick carry in random, because it's the star character that generally gets all the kills.

2. The Tank: Following the car metaphor, the tank is your steering. It'll guide the team into battle, and in many cases will be the one starting the fights. Tanks are there to absorb damage and lock down the most dangerous champions on the enemy team so you can position yourselves to win the fight. Some tanks do this with CC, whereas other tanks have some damage and will soften up the enemy team instead. Tanks still tend to need the rest of their team to back them up.

3. The Support: I guess support are your tires or something? Maybe the AC. Either, support help the team out with buffs and generally shields or healing. Healers tend to assist the carry by allowing the carry to stay in the lane longer through said healing or shields. Unlike, well, just about everyone else, Support don't rely so much on gear and thus will purposefully AVOID getting last hits so that their lane partner can farm gold faster. Because of their reduced need of gold, support should also be buying and placing wards when needed. It's worth noting that EVERYONE should generally buy wards, but as a support you can afford to take the financial hit. FEW people pick support in random due to how hard it is to influence games. You have to be very proactive to make up for bad teammates as a carry.

4. The Jungler: Jungling is a more advanced concept, and you won't see it until higher summoner levels. This is due to runes and masteries allowing for more efficient jungling. It is still possible on a few champs, even at Summoner Level 1, but very uncommon. As the name implies, the jungler sits in the jungle and kills neutral creeps. This benefits your team by creating a second solo lane (top lane), resulting in more experience and gold for your team as a whole. Once the jungler hits a certain gear/level point, they look for opportunities to gank enemies. This is generally done via strong CC abilities, such as Warwick's ultimate or Nunu's slow coupled with his speed buff. Skills such as these will enable the jungler's teammate in that lane to easily assist with the kill. When not ganking, the jungler will return to the jungle regularly to keep up in terms of gold and experience. Due to their roaming, the jungler has plenty of opportunities to place wards for its teammates.

This is a very simple guide! There are other roles in teams, but this is a rough outline of the basics. Roles can easily overlap, and a champion can fill more than one role! Experiment and see what works and what doesn't.

Root = A debuff which prevents any movement by a champion (summoner spells excluded)
Silence = A debuff which prevents any abilities being used by a champion (summoner spells excluded)

    It depends on who's missing. Generally speaking, 'don't push up past river - stay within fallback distance of your tower'.

    ...If it's a post-6 Annie or equivalent burst-caster, and you see the enemy pushing your lane hard, it means, 'run away. you're about to be blown-up from behind by a teddy bear'.

    Subject: No shit

    It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.

    I think my teammate appreciated the time an enemy Shaco tried to kill my wounded partner, whom I healed as he hit 100hp. Undeterred Shaco continued to stab the poor guy so I popped my ultimate heal. He was still pretty close to dying though so Shaco continued to slice and dice so I popped my summoner Heal. By then he had been starcalled to death!

    I basically won the damn game for us when I ninja'd both Nexus Towers while they got Baron and killed 3 of our guys. But I got at least two-thirds of our towers again, grabbing them at any opportunity.
    Also, holy fuck our first-pick Karthus was bad. He was 0/8 in laning phase as Karthus. And he was out of position every moment of the game. I have no idea how he ever picked up kills.

    Ooooh. I also First-Blooded' their Shaco at Red lvl1 after stealing the buff.

    I feel like I deserve a fucking medal, but Nope. Only +13 ELO.

    Ranked needs to give higher ELO gains. Dealing with all the ragers, trolls, leavers, and people using terribad builds is simply not worth +9 for a win. They should give like +8000.

    Sure, 100,000ELO would be the new 2000, but I still want better ELO gains.

    watching v8 vs CLG

    v8 seems to consistently win early game right now

    then get eternally baited into fights where they're outnumbered and lose

    they're still a young team

    if they work out their communication issues and stop committing to fights they can't win they'd be really strong

    people really need to pay more attention to laning comp

    we just lost terribly because our nidalee wouldn't do anything except solo top

    meanwhile myself as akali and my laning partner of leona were getting our shit pushed in by malphite/trist

    I had an enemy team last pick Nasus when we already had a Garen. They sent him top.
    ...lets just say Garen got a lot of free kills.

    Ranked needs to give higher ELO gains. Dealing with all the ragers, trolls, leavers, and people using terribad builds is simply not worth +9 for a win. They should give like +8000.

    Sure, 100,000ELO would be the new 2000, but I still want better ELO gains.

    There are ragers, trolls, leavers, and people using terribad builds in the 1800s.

    It never goes away.

    Just handily beat a Gragas in mid with Lux. Couldn't really do shit to him at the start but once I had my ult and sorc treads I could drop him in a single combo + ignite. 14 seconds on her Q though uugggghhh

    i hope they up the missile speed on her Q with these adjustments they're making to her, along with the cooldown reductions

    it feels sooo fucking slow compared to dark binding

    I'm gonna stream a few more ranked games tonight, I'd like some feedback on how I can not be bad because I make lots of mistakes.

    It can also be some what entertaining. I'm sitting at 1201 ELO right now and I'm hoping I can get to 1250 tonight.

    It's when you start looking ahead a few games that you lose 3 or 4 in a row. I lost my last two ranked and am now about 1175. =(

    Thought I could make it to 1250 as well.

    Edit - My last ranked match had a last-pick Kat after the other team chose Sion, Alistar and Lee Sin. Seriously? She went 0/5 in laning, and then bought a Mejais. Yeah, we lost.

    But on the bright side, I got a triple kill. I love playing Irelia, and I was the only non-negative KD on the team(7/7/9), solo top vs Garen. Stupid Garen.

    Just Dominion forever.

    Dominion is still fun, right?

    It's all I mostly do - quick games and low stress. I feel like this game needs another map. *shrug*

    I like bot with some characters, I think both Morg and Fiddle for instance can do well there. The only problem is that the points for it are still messed up.

    bot's problem is that it really, really doesn't feel all that dynamic

    you just push, watch out for ganks and people trying to back cap you, and then cap the other bot point when you have a chance

    it's an incredibly different experience compared to the rest of the map and a lot of the time kinda meh
