Salketer [big bucks] February 22 2010 3:13 PM EST

Hi Guys, I saw people talking about this game on the forums this week and decided to give it a try. Ended up loving it and looking for some players to play with.

If you play LoL please add me in your friendlist (Salketer).
If you have not tried it yet, you should! Get it at http://www.leagueoflegends.com/ or ask for my referral link if you want to help me out.

Wraithlin February 22 2010 3:15 PM EST

my character name is Wraithlin if anyone wants to add me as well.

Joel February 22 2010 3:53 PM EST

My Character name is JoelDavidBell so you can add me too. I don't play much because I have to study more, but I will try to find the time to do some more LoL, sometime.

Admiralkiller February 22 2010 6:53 PM EST

I am Admiralkiller

Pretty cool Game..Kinda Like dota..but with D2 and WOW type experience upgrades. Highly suggested. :-)

Asgarginia February 22 2010 7:09 PM EST

Ingame name is Sinnie.

I'll play with anyone - just don't hate me if I suck :)

Salketer [big bucks] February 22 2010 7:10 PM EST

Some of the Dota Allstars creators actually made this game... HoN (or something similar) is the game made by the other half.

Asgarginia February 22 2010 7:14 PM EST

Apparently the other 'version' costs money and is a dota clone.
LoL has new champions and stuffs.

Free = win

I need something to take my mind off of not having a beta key for SC2... started dl'n this, looks interesting >:]

BadFish February 23 2010 12:16 AM EST

could I play this on a crappy cookie-cutter compaq laptop?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] February 23 2010 8:27 AM EST

Most likely.. As long as you have a broadband connection..

Admiralkiller February 23 2010 11:00 AM EST

Sent an invite to the players I know, (Admiralkiller).
Any others please post name here or invite me.

I got the hang of it now and can hold my own.

Cube February 23 2010 11:08 AM EST

could I play this on a crappy cookie-cutter compaq laptop?

How crappy? I have one friend that can't play it. If it's modern it should be fine, a few years old maybe not.

Salketer [big bucks] February 23 2010 11:23 AM EST

As long as your video card has Shaders 2.0 it should be fine... I got a very old comp that can play it (had to change the videocard with one i had laying around)

Miandrital February 25 2010 6:35 PM EST

Mine is Miandrital

I compiled the list for my own reference. I think we should definitely have a game sometime if 5 of us can get online together.

I love the support characters, so you Ashe and Ryze lovers don't need to worry about me taking your guy :)

I'll probably be on a couple times this weekend, I'm not that good at the game yet but I'm getting better every game.

spydah February 25 2010 7:42 PM EST

One never knows when I'll be around with my schedule, but if I am, yay people to play with.

I am, of course, spydah.

/\88/\

Tyriel [123456789] February 26 2010 2:24 AM EST

If you need any tips for playing a champion, let me know. I know how to play most champions, and can give you ideas on what items you want too.

Maybe some of us could even play a practice game some time (though not a normal game, since most of you guys would probably get terribly owned because we'd all be playing at my level :P).

My summoner name is Zirun, if you want to add me to your friends list.

And no stealing my Janna! She's mine, and nobody else gets to play her!

Salketer [big bucks] February 26 2010 3:54 AM EST

Turiel, if we teamed in a real match we wouldn't play your level, we would be playing the average score of the team... I would love to grab enough CB players to have some 5v5 CB rumbles, it would be great even if we ain't good!

PS: Janna is weak... =P

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] February 26 2010 4:20 AM EST

I'm level 7.. Adding all you guys above right now..

Salketer [big bucks] February 26 2010 4:31 AM EST

Following Miandrital's idea, I am posting an updated list...

Salketer
Wraithlin
JoelDavidBell
Admiralkiller
Sinnie
Serialkiller94
Miandrital
spydah
Zirun

We are missing Kefeck's username, did not try if it is the same as on CB.

We got enough to make a nice 5v5 :) If all of you guys are interested, we should plan a date and time and see where it leads. Just for funzies!

Asgarginia February 26 2010 5:16 AM EST

I'm in love with Ryze <3

I'm saving up for fiddlesticks though; that whirlwindymoveofepicdeath scares me; and I want it.

I'm level 10 now and getting the hang of champion gankage with ryze.

Does anyone have access to a vent server?

Too many misspelt words leads me to add this sentence to the end of my post to make it comply with the rules!

Miandrital February 26 2010 5:31 AM EST

Yeah I just got to level 10 too. Its starting to make more sense now. I thought you had to keep leveling until 12-13, but I realized that if you start ganking after about level 6-7 you still level pretty fast but then you start hurting the other team. Using the tank characters is also nice because at that point I can stand a lot of damage and still escape if I get too aggressive.

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] February 26 2010 5:10 PM EST

Im Freekie... 3XP from level 9... when i first started i didnt really like it but once you get the hang of its a great time :)

Guardian February 26 2010 5:25 PM EST

just joined, name is KnightWarriorBR

Guardian February 26 2010 5:40 PM EST

question

man this LOL game looks like warcraft, is it PVP only or you have entire world of npc to fight?

Miandrital February 26 2010 6:09 PM EST

It is a Dota clone basically

Wraithlin February 26 2010 6:14 PM EST

It is pvp only unless you count that you make make games vs computers. The games vs computers are really boring though because the computer plays slightly smarter than the army units that just spawn and kill each other endlessly.

And it does have quite a learning curve. Luckily the game tries to match newer guys with newer guys but there often isn't alot of them Qing up at the same time, so you can get put in games with some real pros which can be discouraging.

hahha I'm so proud of myself. :) I went 13 0 0 today and legendary. :)
We made them surrender :)

Tyriel [123456789] February 28 2010 8:30 AM EST

Turiel, if we teamed in a real match we wouldn't play your level, we would be playing the average score of the team... I would love to grab enough CB players to have some 5v5 CB rumbles, it would be great even if we ain't good!


Even if that happens (which is possible), our team would have me and four of you guys (all of random skill) versus 5 opponents of average skill. The opponents would all be better than 2, 3, maybe 4 of us, and that would be almost impossible to overcome, especially since I don't play carry champions.

The other possibility would be that it would think you newer guys were new accounts of good players, and would give us even harder opponents. Either way, it ends badly for us! :)

PS: Janna is weak... =P


The Pawn is the weakest piece in Chess, but it also has the most potential. :)

(0.0) [SeeD] February 28 2010 10:50 AM EST

I'm actually pretty good with Ryze now. I can usually go 5+ KD in a game.

Asgarginia February 28 2010 11:46 AM EST

I've just discovered that there is an EU server as well as US.

Which ones is everyone on?

Joel February 28 2010 11:59 AM EST

I just played and I'm on the US server. What times are everyone on? I couldn't reach any of you guys. I got on at 10:00 Central time. 11:00 Server time. I can't play anymore until after work at about 19:30 Server time.

Admiralkiller February 28 2010 12:34 PM EST

I have invited everyone one here to my friends list....to make sure you have accepted please check the little box in the bottom right corner once it's open click your previous assignment. I have no clue which server I am on but it's the same as Wraith and salketer.

Also I am finally getting good and able to do well all of the time.

Joel February 28 2010 7:21 PM EST

I'm kinda getting good too! My last game was lost because we were all n00bs but I've reduced my deaths by a lot!
My game was like this: 1 2 2. 1 kill, 2 deaths, and 2 assists. I can't wait until I can afford to actually buy a hero. I've got my sights set on Dr. Mundo because he's the most like how I would be, in a fantasy world :p

Asgarginia February 28 2010 7:26 PM EST

I think my current best is something like 14/1/8 =]

Ryze is pro, I'm saving up for fiddlesticks now.

Joel February 28 2010 7:55 PM EST

Damnit!! 2-3 people always disconnect in every one of my games!! Thats the main reason I've never won a game...

Joel February 28 2010 11:15 PM EST

W00T! Won my first game! I'm almost able to buy a hero now!

Cube March 1 2010 12:29 AM EST

Forgot to post my username. It's Aldo. If anyone wants to team with me, be wary that I'm probably not close to your level =) been playing since beta; you are of course welcome to though.

If anyone wants an easy hero to learn, I'd recommend Annie. One I started with and still my favorite.

Admiralkiller March 1 2010 12:47 AM EST

Found a decent build page.\

seems to make sense to the little that I know.

http://www.leagueoflegends-wiki.com/lol/champions

Joel March 1 2010 1:02 AM EST

Thanks a bunch! I'll be using that page a TON!

Miandrital March 1 2010 2:05 AM EST

Just got a 23/3/8 with veiger, it was total domination :)

I use this site: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=28809

It has 4-5 guides for every hero

Tyriel [123456789] March 1 2010 9:29 AM EST

Haha, enjoy those huge amounts of kills while you can!

You'll end up getting less or less as you start to get better. I'm only averaging 13.5 kills+assists per game on my current main. :(

ScY March 1 2010 10:47 AM EST

I heard dota was better in every way possible.

:O

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 1 2010 11:14 AM EST

Eh. All old-school Dota players say that. It's like me saying Doom is the best FPS ever.

I think LoL is an improvement, and a nice evolutionary step for Dota-style games. The original map is limited by the WCIII engine, and it's starting to show it's age...

Admiralkiller March 9 2010 4:40 PM EST

I just wanted to give this fun little game a bump.

Salketer [big bucks] March 9 2010 4:41 PM EST

you up for a game AK?

Joel March 21 2010 3:08 AM EDT

I'm tired of the "Equal Matchups" that are automatically found for me. I always get teamed up with reckless players that don't communicate well, at all. All the teams I fight against have level 30 guys in them, so the reckless players on my team get slaughtered...
If I play, then I want to play with someone who plays safe and keeps their deaths per game to a max of 3, like me ^.^

Its tough to find those types of players, though, but I'm befriending every player that works well with me. I only use Dr. Mundo, as some of you know, and I've won 19 and lost 24. I'm summoner level 14, as of today. Playing it safe is the best way to win, I've found, but I can't really help the losses if my team is a suicidal bunch of IDIOTS, lol.
My stats for Mundo are: 122 kills 153 deaths and 139 assists. I know that doesn't compare to those of you who play champions that easily kill other champs, but I like my way ^.^ My Kills are catching up with my Deaths, due to me nearly perfecting my guerilla style combat maneuvers.
To sum this up: I am much more experienced now and I'm looking for reliable teammates!

P.S. Please post your stats here! I'm very curious to see how good you guys are!

Miandrital March 21 2010 3:36 AM EDT

Joel, our CB crew is getting pretty good. I play with Salk and AK a lot and they are getting beastly with their champs. SK is also getting better.

My best game so far is a 15/1/20 with chogath :)

We won that game 4v5 too (we were the 4)

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 21 2010 3:42 AM EDT

So yeah i just started blitz and im loving him... total support char :) I played a lot of ashe before and not the greatest numbers :P 333-379-482

Miandrital March 21 2010 3:47 AM EDT

manson, I don't think we've played together yet...I always hate seeing blitz on the other side of my lane, would be fun to team up with one for a change.

Lets try sometime this week :)

Wraithlin March 21 2010 3:49 AM EDT

Joel:

My best char is Ryze:

58 wins, 46 losses

988-801-901

My second best char is Rammus:

106 wins, 72 losses

1092-1123-1885

Wraithlin March 21 2010 3:49 AM EDT

322 wins, 284 losses overall

Admiralkiller March 21 2010 4:27 AM EDT

Have not really stuck with one guy yet, thou my best guy is

Heimerdinger.

27 wins 21 losses

163 kills 137 deaths 261 assists..

Kassadin I like too..

20 Wins 13 losses

233 kills 244 deaths 302 assists..

You can also check each of your friends profiles by right clicking their name.

Total Wins VS losses = 93 won lost 101...but that reflects my 1st week as a noob as well and My step son using my account.

Joel March 21 2010 10:46 PM EDT

Awesome scores guys! Especially Wraithlin - W00T! Why aren't you on my friends list, man? Tell me your summoner's name so I can add you and see when you're on!

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 21 2010 11:10 PM EDT

Wish my stats were anything near those... im kinda getting tired of playing 2 out of 3 games with an afker or 2... anyway im sitting at a whopping 49-74... *shrugs*

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 21 2010 11:21 PM EDT

Joel and I are gonna get a game going here soon... message one of us on here or there and well get a team up.

Joel March 21 2010 11:25 PM EDT

Yeah, I lose a lot of games for that reason, too. I don't usually die more than 3 times, though, and I've had a few games where I never died ^.^

Joel March 22 2010 12:50 AM EDT

That was the best game that I've EVER had! We should team up EVERY time! You were great with Blitzcrank! We just owned them from the very beginning! I was good at covering your back, most of the time, by throwing a cleaver in the face of your pursuer :p

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 22 2010 4:03 PM EDT

So i hit my first "Busy". Servers are full. Happen to anyone else yet? I wanna play!!!

Miandrital March 22 2010 5:55 PM EDT

12:50 PM PDT: We are aware of the complications players are currently experiencing. We will be restarting our servers momentarily, and expect the downtime to last 3 hours.

All boosts will be extended to compensate for the downtime.

(0.0) [SeeD] March 22 2010 8:19 PM EDT

Maybe we could organize an arranged team of 5 people. I will be on a lot this Friday.

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 24 2010 1:56 AM EDT

So im totally getting the hang of Blitz... last 10 matches weve won 8, for a whopping record of 70-25-78. But champs are gonna change soon so i need to get as many points with him as fast as possible. So if you get on and im on invite me!
