[MOBA DOBA] League of Legends, the Legend of the Leagues

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.

use the code if you get servers are down/busy message (amumu/blitzcrank)
make sure the launcher window is your active 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
or, udyr is bearcock, whatever, bearcock.

    DAC'S LIST OF AWFUL CHAMPS

    Evelynn
    Malzahar
    Tryndamere
    Cho'Gath

    END OF DAC'S LIST OF AWFUL CHAMPS

    And here we go. We should be set for at least until Cho gets better cooldowns and a initiate that hits people reliably / Tryndamere gets his early, mid and late game as good as his very late game / Malzahar becomes able to control his pet / Evelynn gets a complete rework because it's Evelynn.

    Hey guys, your resident wikifiend here! Remember, we have the Penny Arcade LoL wiki that I've been updating with guides for specific champs: http://leagueofarcadians.wikispaces.com/

    The reason I'm posting is to give an update on which champs we still need guides for. I read the threads, and I've been putting random guides in there, but there are still quite a few champ guides missing. If you'd like to help out, just post a guide in the LoL thread and I'll take care of it.

    Champs we still need guides for (spoilered for scroll rape):
    Akali
    Alistar
    Anivia
    Ashe
    Blitzcrank
    Corki
    Evelynn (lol)
    Fiddlesticks
    Galio
    Gangplank
    Heimerdinger
    Jax
    Karthus
    Kassadin
    Katarina
    Kayle
    Kennen
    Kog'maw
    Malzahar
    Master Yi
    Mordekaiser
    Nasus
    Nidalee
    Nunu
    Pantheon
    Rammus
    Ryze
    Shaco
    Sion
    Sivir
    Soraka
    Teemo
    Tristana
    Tryndamere
    Twisted Fate
    Twitch
    Udyr
    Urgot (not on the wiki yet)
    Veigar
    Vladimir
    Xin Zhao
    Zilean

    Eh I'll write a Jax guide. I'll probably get it done late tonight.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Malz doesn't need to be able to control his voidlings, the AI works fine once you know how it functions. If he could control them he'd have the best laning phase in the game by an incredibly huge margin.

    I would honestly not recommend jungling until Level 20+, when you have swapped all of your shitty Tier 1 runes out for Tier 3 runes.

    (Don't buy Tier 2s.)


    I'll write a Galio guide later.

    You may be able to jungle, but you won't be in nearly as good a shape as you could be.

    Also, some others (Amumu and Fiddles come to mind) might have more issues. I know I was certainly not too impressed by Amumu jungling from level 1 when stuck with T1s.

    The general rule of thumb has been:

    Red: Armor or Magic penetration
    Yellow: Dodge or mp5/level
    Blue: Cooldown or mp5/level
    Quints: Movespeed or health

    With some variation depending on whatever character you are playing. (Obviously this is leaving out energy characters and whatnot)

    Nasus is decent at jungling, not the fastest but he's not bad at all.

    Plus he can get some nice early ganks by using his slow from a distance and then hitting dudes using the lizard buff after closing the distance.
