League of Legends (LoL) is a game that lives up to its acronym. It's essentially a dumbed down version of the popular Warcraft 3 custom map Defense of the Ancients
, but despite being a much newer product, somehow manages to have worse graphics. Not only that, but LoL is plagued by horrendous balance issues, a very hostile and immature community, and a user interface that could only be described as awful.
If you're hanging out for your fix Dota-styled gameplay, but want something a little more modern, check out the far superior Heroes of Newerth instead, because League of Legends is really not worth your time.
