What If League Of Legends Had Come Out In The '90s?

If League of Legends had existed 20 years ago, maybe the ads for it would have looked something like this. Then again, if you had a '90s computer with '90s Internet, it would probably have taken you about 15 minutes just to load the one-minute ad.

That said, the ad isn't quite accurate. League requires 8 GB of hard drive space. A high-density 3.5" floppy disk can contain 1.44 MB of data, requiring 5,556 disks, a little more than the "thousand-disk installation package." And there's no way a dog could play League; how would it know when to scream at its teammates when they mess up? You can't pee on someone through the Internet.

Hey you ass! we had fukin cd's in the 90's not just floppys. And ftw. rts are still played, just like moba's are still played. In fact back in the 90's when warcraft 3 started their lil "moba" mod everybody hated it with a passion. if league came out in the 90's... truthfully it would've died with it.

Funny tought and what?!
To be honest back in the day people dreamt about moba's its stated on many places that some of the developers behind these games sat there with the 90's RTs games and tought we want more..

That being sayd im sad MOBA's went popular when i really would like a full scale RTS game take some place aswell.. you know there are people that likes RTS just the way it was.
