Multiplayer online battle arenas, or MOBAs, are confusing. Games like League of Legends and Defense of the Ancients for PC are incredibly popular, but if you’re like me, you don’t know the first thing about them.
That’s why I enrolled in the free five-day League of Legends course at LOLGuides.com. The full Summoner School promises huge performance and ranking boosts in eight weeks — for $67. “Weeks” is a bit misleading. Members complete these courses at their own pace, and while founder Paul Patton advised us that it’s not exactly for beginners (he recommended about one month of practice first), we thought it would be fun to put a total inexperienced noob (guilty!) through the training.
