Built using the same principles as the wildly popular Defense of the Ancients mod for Warcraft III, League of Legends gives each player control of a powerful champion unit in a team-based battle to destroy each other's bases. real-time strategy elements, like AI controlled foot soldiers and turrets, and roleplaying features, like leveling abilities and buying better equipment, provide lots of variety and flexibility.
So what is the difference between League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth then? Since they are both rip offs from DotA. League of Legends is a little bit more casual based than Heroes of Newerth. Theres no denying, creepblocking etc. as in the original DotA, this is to me a big plus since everything you want to do is to go with your teammates and gank. You dont want to sit around a tower and look at your minions HP all the time, do you?
League of Legends is also - here comes the magic word - FREE!
It is totally free and doesnt cost anything. All though you can buy credits to get different skins for your characters and you might think that it aint worth it, well, 500 games played with the same character will make you re think about it i can tell you right now.
This is a great game - Check out this trailer aswell, it is AMAZING;
