all ive seen of league of legends is gemplay footage on youtube and IT LOOKS RETARDED. the minions look gay and they light up red every time they take damage (WHICH JUST LOOKS SUPER ANNOYING) i dont know if yo can turn that off but it just annoyed me so much i never got to downloading it and playing
so my question is, ive heard league of legends sucks balls....
why does it suck?
or whats good about it?
what did you like to dislike about league of legends? should i "try" it??
still too lazy. rather play hon
i played it for 5 minutes and couldnt take anymore of the cartoon graphics,exagerated colors,and ragnarok/grand chase like heroes,everything in that game is like,really gay,you dont play it after playing hon or even old war 3 dota
keep being lazy, leave that piece of crap to rot and die
i played it, its ok for a free game.
Ok you know General Discussion means not really general. It means general but related to HoN.
Many people don't get that but yeah threads should be realted to HoN
You're asking the HoN forum. Of course they are going to say it's terrible.
Basically, they dumbed down the game a tad and took out denying. Some people like it, some people think only people with downs could enjoy it.
Long answer: YEEEEEEEEEESSSS
It's a non competitive game pretending to be a little competitive. I've heard it is fun. My experiences with it were not enjoyable.
Issues I see:
No monetary death penalty for dying
Player abilities give an unfair adv
Matchmaking is pretty bad
Balance is a joke
Edit: People say its free and thus you should buy it. Honestly, HoN is $30 and if you are here you spent it, and $30 is not really much for a superior game.
I liken it to WoW vs F2P WoW Clones. You may not like WoW and that's fine, but as someone who has played both, WoW is superior to the F2P clones, but it costs money to play it.
If HoN made a flash game that you could play on an iPod nano you get LoL.
I just started playing it and played like 7matches with 4friends, 1 that plays hon. They all say kys as harddisken as dota/hon. Imo i dont like the no denieng and no gold loss on death, seems to me that pros arent that much better than noobs because of all the things that makes it easier.
My opinion probably doesn't count because I started out with LoL, having never played DotA, and am trying out HoN.
There are small things about LoL that i like that HoN doesn't have. It's mainly just interface and how the game looks. To me, HoN looks like it is zoomed in way too far. I'm still trying to adjust that to.
One thing about LoL I don't like is that the characters aren't always as interesting as Hon/DotA heroes. Many of them have the same moves but a tad different.
I personally like the runes/masteries/summoner spells system. Just a personal opinion. Do I like that flash is a get out of free card? No. But it is like a portal key to some characters where it makes a huge difference in positioning. Yeah, they could just make every spell an item, but there is always more than one approach.
The balance of champions isn't perfect, but it's not gamebreakingly overpowered. Same thing with HoN.
Also, you don't have to use real money to buy heroes like everyone seems to think. Just throwing that out there.
the graphics look like crap. the only good thing about the entire game is that all heroes scale, so you don't completely rely on your allies to win like you do in HoN
You need glyphs, zeals etc to make a hero any good.
If another player has tons of rune items on his hero and you don't there is bigger chance he ends up owning you.
The runes don't give that much advantage but they do help alot.
Balance in the game is **** and the game is a joke compared to DotA, it's embaressing that it's actually the creators of DotA that made the game.
Only thing good about the game is that it isn't as competitive and community is great.
But i wouldn't want too ask this question to HoN players, it's not really smart.
Towers do to much damage. Some hereos are to op. U cant creep denie. U cant cut down trees to juke them.
e-famous superstar and legendary hero of the Brazilian people kirbyruled, once the greatest mod that OT hath ever known, requests but a single humble beta key
It's like a 1000-1300 pub with a bad balance patch.
And they're not patching the game. The players are not getting better. Matchmaking is made on matches played rather than matches won/lost.
There's global skills that some heroes synergise well with. Some that are just very powerfull as a whole and some that I can't even understand why they put in there.
tl;dr: The game sucks. Play HoN (or dotA) instead.
I played LoL after having played HoN, and even if the game isn't as good, it's stil a fun game to play. If you're an experienced HoN player, you can go right into the game and dominate. I was able to have +10 scores in my second games already, and it only got better. There's a few fun heroes in the game that I wish would HoN would use. One of them is the little ninja that can has a skill set centering around "marks" - basically whenever you use an abillity or something is used against you, you build charges on the guy. Depending on xx charges, you can use an activate abillity to dmg and stun (if enough charges) add in a thrown shuriken, a madman like abillity (stalk) and a ultimate that is a cloud of lightning following you where you go for a limited duration. Forgot the hero name, but really wish hon would have a hero like that
