In my past I played a lot of Warcraft 3 and when a custom scenario called Defence of the Ancients (DoTA for short) came out, I was blown away. This scenario was fantastic, you controlled a hero instead of the base and minions like in the normal Warcraft 3 scenarios. I played a LOT of this game. It was addictive and there were so many different heroes to try out.
About a six months ago one of my friends encouraged me to try out League of Legends (LoL) saying that it was similar to DoTA but much better. I was reluctant as I was kind of over DoTA, I didn’t really want to get pulled into another huge time-sink of a game.
I tried it out and I haven’t stopped playing it since. I have a group of friends that I play with regularly allowing us to have a 5-man premade team. There are 2 map types, one is 5v5 and the other is 3v3. I mainly play 5v5 as it is longer and more fun in my opinion.
I won’t bore you with my poor explanation of the game so if you want more information head on over to their website.
I have used and feel that I am competent with all the champions in the game (I get bored playing the same champ over and over) but I have been playing a LOT of Master Yi lately, and when I am not playing him I have been playing Garen. You have to be pretty bad to not have at least a decent game with Garen. There is not really a lot you can do wrong, I build him full tank build and most of the time I have the most kills on my team. I also like to scream “Demacia” through TeamSpeak every time I get a kill or use his ulti.
