Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[MOBA DOBA] League of Legends, Dreaming of E's and Morgana

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:
leagueoflengends.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.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE
THE MOTHER FUCKING CODE

Q: I am trying to login but the server status is "Busy"
A: This will happen often during busy hours. However, the servers may still be accessible. With the launcher window in focus, press the arrow keys 'up' 'down' 'left' 'right' 'up' 'up' 'down' 'down' to bypass the launcher and go to the password window.

press up, down, left, right, up, up, down, down on your keyboards arrow keys
it'll switch it to teemo

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!

BEARCOCK IS TO BE REFERRED TO AS BEARCOCK

    it seems annoying to pop into every LoL vent channel and say "Hey, this is pyeman, you guys playing a game soon, almost done with yours? need another?"

    So I have 1350 IP burning a hole in my pocket. Not buying my BFF Veigar just yet, since he'll be free for the rest of the week and I'll almost certainly pick him up then. Any suggestions? I'm kind of eying Nasus, but it doesn't look like he sees a ton of play - is he underpowered in some way that I'm missing at a glance?

    Usually there's one channel with a million billion people in it while the rest are being used for games, so it can't hurt to hop in just that one channel to see if anyone's looking for folks.

    Nasus is a pretty balanced hero that's really versatile so if that's what you're looking for he'd be a good choice. The fun part about him is that ideally you're rarely building him the same way all the time outside of a few core items.

    I seem to suck balls at playing hard carries. I just get murdered early every game and never really recover. I think I'll just have to stick with Shen/Kayle/Annie/Ashe and sometimes Nasus.

    I wish I was better at last hitting with Shen so it I could get decent items before the game is well over half done. Also what is the pvp.net channel? Didn't even know you could make channels.

    nasus is really weak for a tank, minimal disruption, He really only affects a couple champions since he can only slow peoples attack speed, and the armor debuff is less than spectacular.

    Nasus has his role, if you're bored and want to try something new (normal/practice game) try jungle nasus. With his ult he can take down dragon pretty quick. Plus he's a fucking dog-man.

    can't describe exactly how to do it without the pvp.net window in front of me.

    Click on the "Group" button in the bottom right of the friends list. Then somewhere in that section there is a "Create/Join group" button. Click on that and type "penny arcade"

    Once you do that you can click on the little gear icon in the group chat window and set to autojoin on startup.

    Nasus can do more than just tank! He's also a pretty good beefy DPS. Or offtank.

    Basically the best thing about Nasus is that he can fill lots of niches.

    Stick to the champ you enjoy playing and even better, are competent with.

    You seem to fit into both of those categories, so fuck everyone else's opinions.

    But honestly, if you like teemo, you'd probably like Malzahar.

    I like Teemo because he was fast and I loved the mobility. I like Singed for the same reason because he does well with boots 3 and movespeed quints. Also, because he is hard to chase and hard to get away from.
