Pacov's place to enjoy the show.
Feel free to jump in and discuss lol even if you aren't Demigod alumni
Published on August 17, 2011 By pacov In PC Gaming

So, during the (12 day or so) downtime with the MP servers, I decided to give LoL another go and have been enjoying myself.  I'm glad DG is back up and running, but the break was enough for me to try another competitive DoTa style game and start to enjoy it.  This thread isn't about bashing DG or any nonsense (so don't ffs).  Its simply a place for those of us that play or have played DG and now play LoL as a main or occasionally to discuss the game and keep in touch. 

So - chime in here if you have been playing LoL with your experiences or whatever you want to chat about.

 

I'll get us started.  I've been enjoying the F2P aspect of LoL quite a bit.  Remember WAAAAYYYY back when favor points in DG meant something?  Eg - remember playing games and looking forward to unlocking a favor item you wanted to try out?  It's like that all the time with LoL (well, it will be for quite some time anyway).  You get IP (favor points) for every game you play.  You can shell out some money if you really want to buy all of the characters, etc (the temptation is always there for the quick win), but you can also just play for fun and earn enough IP to unlock a new char, etc.  It's been very satisfying for me slowly earn enough IP to try out a new character, etc.

As it stands, I'm ok with 3 characters (card guy, silv, and viking pants - there are so many char it takes awhile to learn all the names).  I'm ok early, decent mid game, and utter SHITE late game with my characters.  It seems very diff from DG in that respect (if we are kicking ass early/mid, you can't harass like a god late game - that's gotten me killed more than a few times).  There are ALOT of reasonable builds (from what I can tell).  I started by trying out many diff char vs ai to learn them (that's why I'm like level 12 with "13 wins" or so).  Then I learned you get more IP from playing against humans, so I just switched up.

Anyway, I think the game is fun now and I'm looking forward to the new domination mode (it's a Demigod knock off imo) that is essentially holding points to get bonuses from what I understand.  Hearing about that mode is pretty much exactly why I started playing.  Oh, and pretty damn close to 100% of games end because another team beat you - not because someone dropped. 

Anyway, I'm going thru a learning curve.  I play with folks that are "experienced" and I often think they are retarded after my impressive 40 games or so (vs their 500+ games).  The strats often sound idiotic to me.  But that said, I fell into line in a game with jon, paint, obi, and 2 of jon's clan mates tonight and we scored a win when i thought we were done.  My biggest weakness (I think anyway) is not knowing what folks can do with their characters... I think there are like 70 char... as a new player, you have NO IDEA what each char can do until you play them or play against them enough... and that will take some time.  Anyway, I'm pacov on LoL if you play and want to add me as a friend.  I'm not exactly good, but I probably won't lose you the game at this point.  We should organize some LoL games and some DG games.  Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you.

Once you play LoL enough it will become very similar as with Demigod. You will have almost every champion and needed runes. The skins are the only things you can't buy with IP :'(

the main difference is that LoL is 5v5 vs Demigod 3v3. You can't really kick ass against a grouped up 5 team by yourself, while in demigod you can 1v3 in certain situations. And yeah the game speed and no sigil aspect. Also farming is its ABC of LoL.
Oh, and pretty damn close to 100% of games end because another team beat you - not because someone dropped.
just wait till you start playing ranked when you reach lvl 30^^ I bet you you will quit LoL because of that terrible experience to 70% (griefers/trolls/feeders),like having endless robert munches .

Yes! PLS! Only way to enjoy these games.

I'll add you Pacov. I don't know how much I'll play though since I've been on a break from it.

Edit: and yeah it is 81 champions currently.

yeah... fair point.

Well, that's not exactly encouraging?  You mean the majority of ranked games are just full of nonsense?  Can you play on the same team as friends in ranked matches or is it all random? 

I've been jumping in and out of games with folks and I know and just pugging for the extra IP.  Seems like there are a lot of former dg players that play this (cow, peter, jona, zen, pacov, trouser, jon, paint, dark, rawr,, macc, etc).  You should add them as friends if you haven't.

I still play lol a bit 

 

About 1000 games in (maybe 600 human and 500 AI -- 2-3 ai a week for free win bonus and to try freebie toons)

Ninki, Orcun, and Wallstop all play if you hadnt added them Pacov. I'm Vlademir_Sol on there btw.

Edit: You can solo queue, duo queue, and 5-man queue in ranked 5v5. Personally I stick to normals because it is a more relaxed enviorment.

Edit2: I haven't solo queued since I could remember just a lot more fun with friends. More teamwork to.

Do you mean that you don't play ranked games?  Is that what you mean by "normals?"

on Aug 17, 2011

Yeah I mean I don't usually queue for ranked matches. Non ranked queues are called normals.

to be fair, though, Demigod has a HUGE farm aspect - it just doesn't care about the last hit mechanic.

true true, but in comparison if you and your team can't farm well you will lose to 80% in LoL

So what characters are people using as their main?  If they do have a main, that is.

on Aug 17, 2011

I usually play Renekton - good in line, harass, very useful in first part of game. He has stun, jump and a little lifesteal.. Also i like Heimerdinger - he is push hard and can farm fast.  And two auto-turrets - a bit of Rook-style

on Aug 17, 2011

I don't really have a main atm, but Xin Zhao is my most played recently.
