Ask DN: Do you play League (of Legends)? (+ DN Club)

over 7 years ago from , art/design/lol @ mim.st

Hey guys, I was wondering how many of you over here play League of Legends? Let's setup the DN Club so we can all play together! I usually play a couple hours on the weekends. Not a pro or anything!

      Go on now, git outta here!

      With your creep & tower denys, and higher micro skill levels, and secret shops, and item deliveries...

      I really like all those concepts, but there are just something about DOTA that do not make sense to me... mostly item builds, and team comps, and neutral objective strategies... I'm too deep into the League kool-aid I guess, haha.

      With that said, I totally get why there is the big feud between the two player bases :D Both are great games.

        Don't forget the UI. It would be cool to see some discussion on non-web/mobile apps on DN.

        joke's aside, the reason why I chose dota2 because I always appreciate valve's art and previous games. I'd take anything without thinking if it's from valve.

        I also find discussing which one is the best. It's like comparing halo with destiny. (Because quake is the best :p )

        I find DOTA2's UI (also with the reborn update) much much better actually. It feels solid and they do really listen community. I remember seeing a badly photoshopped image on reddit which the user claims that the overlay that he made was much better for the reborn update. It was obvious that he/she was not a designer but just a gamer. But the best part is in a few weeks valve actually did listened and updated UI. Also they included his reddit username in credits.

        It's a great thing that the developer of the game literally reads our thoughts and focused on the game instead of making the game more profitable. I may like valve but I don't care about their money.

        about the workshop items;

        I knew that valve is extremely restrictive with the custom items but it's because of every single hero has it's concept. For example there's this hero called Gyrocopter. He has a funky clunky helicopter and he has tons of different skins. But even you zoom out %200 you can identify because of it's characteristic animations, forced colour palettes. Which means valve has great art directors.

        On the other hand I find LoL's artworks are good as well, but I find they have lack of consistency (christmas skins are awful idea)

        On the other hand, LoL has 60m players and DOTA2 has just 12m. Which means these are just my thoughts :) The whole world decided which one is more fun

        or easy >:)

    Not a player, but refreshing to see an off-topic thread without people going bat-shit insane with the old “yadda yadda this is not about design yadda yadda ”

    When the 2048 craze was a thing we made League themed version - http://lol2048.com - if anyone wants something to kill time when waiting for a game to start

      It is entirely possible that I may have wasted about half an hour playing this. Nice!

    Haven't played since just after Kindred was released but some of my friends are luring me back. Used to play mainly CC support, but not sure what the meta is now.

    I've been playing League of Legends for a couple of months now but i'm still really bad at the game. Enjoying the game so much though, just hopefully I can get better at the game soon.

    I'm definitely improving now that I'm using this: http://gamesinfun.com/league-of-legends
