League of Legends: 5 Reasons That Explain Its Tremendous Success

League of Legends’ success has been intriguing in many ways. Back to 2009, this title was just another multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) with high expectations for a better future. What happened then? Did Riot Games find a magical solution to grow big in the video game world? (League of Legends, PC)

It probably has something to do with it being completely free. And not pay to win.

I understand you point and agree but... there's thousands of free games out there, why didn't they make it so far then? ^^

This one is extremely well done. It is supported with constant patches to make sure it is balanced. After they got a group of dedicated players they got people to tell friends about it. Plus some other free to play games let people pay to get an advantage against opponents ingame which makes some games horribly balanced.

Your article basically got it right.

Quality. Not to mention the community managers/developers that talk to the fans. Just check Morello. The guy just cant stop talking to fans.

Sidenote: Vi is over-powered great noob champion till she gets nerfed to death. She's like new released Darius.

Add me on LoL: ThanatosDMC (jungle/top/mid summoner's rift only)

Needed to add that it does micro-transactions the right way. It's truley free to play and not pay to win.

True, I should have added that too. Thanks for the suggestion.

Agreed with Capt-FuzzyPants and ExPresident. I have to admit, I wasn't even slightly interested in the game until I just recently started playing it. It's surprisingly addictive and requires 100% teamwork so it makes for some truly tactical and strategical gameplay.

Like the two above stated, Riot really does do micro-transactions the right way (In that you can only use real money for cosmetic purposes.) albiet, the cosmetic features you pay for do seem a little over-priced in my opinion.

Awesome that this game is now on Mac. It is the perfect pick up and play game and I always play a game when I have 15-30 min to spare. Great community and good support. Plus it runs at 60 FPS always.
