Summary: I have been playing this game for over 2 years. It has over 100+ playable champions(characters) and is constantly doing patching and adding more champions every 2-3 weeks. this is one of the biggest online games currently. this is a 5v5 RTS. the game is very fun to play but they community isn't the best, my advice is to find a few friends that play and then learn together. they do have a ranked system and have year round tournaments. each game is about 17-30 mins long.

Summary: I must state that the installation cd for this game is not needed, it is free to download online on their official website, what you really want is the promo code. I bought this when Amazon had it for $10 which comes with an installation cd and promo code that unlocks 20~ champions, 1-2 skins, a few runes and something like 1000 riot points for in game purchases. Wouldnt pay full price for it but at 50% off it was a decent deal.
