Love It Or Hate It: League of Legends
Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of "great, totally non-exploitative implementation" and others thinking "total pay-to-win trash." We'd like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public -- and by that, we mean you guys -- think of certain F2P games, and so we've invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?
Every week, we'll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we'll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?
Last week, DCUO put forth a heroic effort for your approval, and it was about as popular as Superman Returns. It had more likes (32%) than dislikes (18%), but half of you just didn't care. And you can't even blame Brandon Routh this time.
All right, things have been a little slow in Love It Or Hate It-Land lately, so let's spice things up with a game everyone's sure to have an opinion on: the big MOBA on the block, the e-sports sensation that's sweeping the nation, the granddaddy of them all -- Infinite Crisis!
Wait, no, that's not right. League of Legends. Yeah, definitely League of Legends.

tournament bets, trades, or buy on market.
LoL = Checker......Since Dota2 is their no.1 competitor.... Spend more to production value to gain more fans....More Fans = More Market (that's what they think).........But in reality its just More Casual Fans seeking for fun not competitive/challenge game.
Think About it....This is Reality.
The game itself is enjoyable, if you like simple, competitive PvP games and don't have the reflexes to handle shooters. It's very large cast of characters definitely sets it apart from the others. I've never played Dota 2, but I have played Heroes of the Storm, and LoL is definitely more for the "hardcore" players.
I would actually say HotS is more enjoyable and much more accessible than LoL, due to it's shallow learning curve and nostalgia of playing as major story characters from some of the most iconic video game franchises in history. If you're someone who takes video games as seriously as real life, you will definitely prefer LoL, though. HotS is definitely for casuals.
Anyone crying toxic id sensative noob. The moment you respond to chat.... You fail. Your eyes and fingers should be in game. Not chat. EU has so many languages no one talks. Once u guild ur team speak and 100% chat free... So toxic exists for no one but idiots looking to rp in a moba.
This game suffers from its own greed.
1) its lobby based. So lobby controls to limit low ping people out is available. They dont do it because they know more people = easy marketing. So poor people on potatos ruin this game.
2) EU is bot infested. Make 4 bot accounts and go afk. As the game pairs you and 4 bots (5) vs. 5 other unsespecting players, u lose they win. Bots easy to identify. Mo one reports because easy win EXP as loser farms losing exp. Riot wont do anything because they know bot filled servers are good for "we got thousands of players" marketing. Sad.
If you wanna take it to the next level and become bad ass .. play Dota 2 cuz
after all ..is the biggest Esports game of all time .. no game can reach its international prize pool ..
True LoL player base might be higher cuz number of casual player are higher then hardcore in any game.
But if you don't like moba and think is lame just because you can't play then u better get out of here.
