Who here is down to (start a new account and) join a SW LoL team?
LoL is essentially a board game which demands 2 important attributes from a gamer (“summoners”):
1. Hand-eye coordination/awareness
2. Understand the game’s mechanics
^knowing what gets you exp/gold/damage and defense against particulars/etc
at its core, the game is just “destroy enemy base before they destroy yours” and do whatever is necessary to get there, the rest is all “meta” (tried and true ways to get there, but the only Facts are doing the math when picking/building up your champ.)
That’s all. Not an oversimplification (just leaving a lot of detail out to not overwhelm with info).
Played the game just months after it first came out. Been playing it on/off ever since. Willing to start a new account with a devoted SW team, need at least 1 person for duo.
The dream goal would be to have a core team of 5 (or more to fill in depending on ppl’s schedules) and use this thread for pre and post game strategies/feedback.
The 5 roles and the composition/type of champ to pick for them (Generally but not always)
1. Top = bruiser/tank
2. Jungle = Assassin/fighter
4. Mid = Mage damage
5. Bot(tom) = Range damage/carry
6. Support - healer/Main carry protector
Playing solo, it’s ideal to learn all 5 roles and as many of the 150+ champs, you never know what position might need to be filled. But usually ppl master/main 1 or 2 roles and play the same 5-10 favorites.
Cinematic showing the gist of some champs and their abilities:
Another important attribute of the game is team communication, which other laners can survive without in solo queue, but as someone who mains support, a co-dependent role, communication can win/lose me games and LoL is known as the #1 most toxic online game ever.
Ranking/high score lists must be important to you to join this. I’m in it to get way over my highest rank so far ( Gold II).
Summoner lvls go up to 60 but everything unlocks at lvl 30/having 20 champs. Requires from you just 4gb ram on pc/mac, and 0 dollars. You do have to commit some hours, but nothing life sucking like WoW or Diablo.
Who’s in? I’ll start a new account tomorrow. When we make it Pass Gold II, i’ll Gift you a skin or champ. Qft.
