I got into League of Legends when my friend, Blackknight, told me about this RTS DoTA based game. I was skeptical at first of such a game but have since grown to love it. LoL has excellent gameplay which is incomparable to any other free online game. Trust me the free component was a big portion as to why I started playing. I have played a plethora of games ranging from WoW to Call of Duty, and invested large sums of money, sweat, and ragequits into them. LoL has been able to keep entertained me with not only its gameplay but its lore and background. No other game has a forum (that I know of) which is commented on constantly by developers as well fellow players in the community. As it expands, I too hope to introduce the game to other players.
My favorite champion is Gangster Twitch the Plague Rat. Twitch and I have had a interesting relationship. A close RL friend told me to buy Twitch and when I did I was utterly HORRIBLE. I would feed 1-9-4 usually. I swore never to play him again. Then one day (many summoner levels later), I decided to play him again. I started to destroy people. Scores in the high twenties almost every game. Twitch forever earned his mobster skin from that moment on. Twitch is an underdog champion, nobody considers him a huge threat but he has excellent possibilities if played in a proper way. However, I have been known to change people's minds...by force. Twitch as character just makes me laugh, he a freaking talking rat that kills you with sewage poison! If people will not play him for his offensive capabilities, they should at least enjoy the company of this hilarious, grotesque, horrid little rat!
