I got into LoL when it first came out but then kinda dropped it completely once the formula was noticeable. I know that’s kinda common as the Red Tinted glasses are off at that point, but the time required and the fun it gave out even under ideal conditions was not self-sustaining for my tastes. By far though, the biggest issue I still have with the game is that it takes far too long to complete any current map.
Note: Even after a year there are still only two maps available. (People complained APB only had two maps after a month on the market, and theirs were far more varied, detailed, and interactable. Thanx for stoppin’ by Mr. Double Standard!)
But it looks liked the new mode called Dominion is working to change that! Promising faster action and shorter games, it already holds my interest. Actually I really wanted to enjoy the game from the beginning, so them adding a new way for me to play it that matches more with my likes rather than dislikes is great news.
Instead of grinding your way to the enemy base and towers and all that in the way, this will be a big circle in the Capture and Hold style. Hold more bases than the enemy, you win! I like this addition as you can actually see a finite finish line instead of hoping to win or praying for the enemy to finally finish you off, as that is usually how the current mode ‘ends’.
The one thing that bothered me was the sound clip starting at thirty seconds in. Anyone else notice it seems a wee bit similar to a huge FPS title?
That is beyond ‘blatant Battlefield ripoff’ if ya ask me, but luckily it really doesn’t affect the game itself. Just makes me wonder what they were thinking of adding that clip in there, it’s so out of place :X Either way, Dominion should be out soon, so if you haven’t played LoL in a while, dust off that account and mix it up in the League!
