The game is super fun and extremely easy to put a lot of time into. Over the time the community has definitely gotten more toxic, but the game can either be super competitive or satisfying and fun with friends, or a bit of both worlds. Sometimes they're are some balance issues, but I'm glad I've spent as much time as I have on this game.
Me and League of Legends go way back. Way back when Xhin-Zhao was newly released. Back when only a few champions can do the Jungler role. That role was an art back then. So yeah, that old.
Kinda forgot what patch that was, but that was League at its best form. No over-hyped or over-designed characters. Ah, simple times.
Now, it's pretty much a mess. If you live under a rock and don't know what a MOBA is, let me stand back and laugh at you for a second. So, let's begin. MOBA is a game in which you and 4 more teammates (or in other words, chuckleheads) team up against another team (full of chuckleheads) to destroy each other's base. In League, that base is called a Nexus. You get to choose any champions which fit a desirable role and practice that champion until you eat, sleep and defecate that champion.
Now let's get back to why I mentioned this game is a mess. Well, its a burst-fest. Any champions that deal the best amount of damage and have high mobility will always triumph in team fights. Tanks don't really stand a chance. It just feels like they have been weakened. And even if you have a champion with a full set of tank items but lacks the reaction and skills, your team will still suffer against an unorganized opposing team.
And I kind of get it why Riot is doing this. It's because of the Esports scene. People love watching flashy moves and outplays. We off-tank players have it so bad.
And don't be fooled by the concept of "You can create your very own build that fits your playstyle, unlike other MOBAS!". Nope, not true.
The only time you get to customize your champion is when you are losing. Does the enemy team have a fed Mage? Gotta have that Banshee Veil or you'll get burst down. So much for that dream build you've been aching to try out.
And don't get me started with the Runes. If you are playing competitively, don't even think of experimenting with the Rune system. It won't matter. In rank, there are only 1 or 2 Rune setups that work well on your champion. So yeah, customization is out of this game.
So is it still worth playing? Of course, it is. If you are playing for fun, then, by all means, play the game. If you wish to play competitively, be prepared. This game will destroy you.
