League of Legends is fast becoming one of the worlds most popular online multiplayer games. I will take you through the basic things you need to do to get started!
You will need to set up an account. League of Legends offers many servers, so make sure you find the one closest to your location. You will be asked to fill in your username, but it will not be your summoner name. The username is what you use to log in. After your account is created you will be given a chance to create your own special, cool, or fun summoner name which will serve as your screen name while in game.
You will need to download the game. This can take quite a few hours so don’t expect to hop right on and play. Give the download anywhere from 3 to 5 hours depending on your computer processing speed and your internet.
Once it’s downloaded it is time to create your unique user id called a summoner name. This will be what everyone else in the game knows you by. Make sure you do not use any profanity or names with innuendo as the community can and often will report such names and you will could face in game penalties or the cost of changing your name. Later, if you decide you do not like your name, there is an option to purchase a summoner name change.
Now, that you’re all logged in you are ready to play the tutorial game and then to play against the AI until you are level 3. At this point you will be able to play the Summoners Rift map. Other maps will open up as you level up your account.
At first you will play with that weeks free champions, but every time you play a game you gain Influence Points which you can later be used to purchase more champions or purchase with cash Riot Points.
There are 3 lanes and a jungle in which you can play. Ranged champions and supports usually go to the bottom lane while mages will head middle lane, melee champs will take top, and the jungler will obviously jungle.
Pick your champ and head to lane! For more information check out LOLKING and MOBAFIRE.
