Hey guys, I've written this article entitled 'League of Budget' and I wanted to know what are your thoughts about my article. Is it good? bad? Anything I can add or remove? Thanks. :)

League of Budgets

Well I’ve had my fair share of problems having to keep updating my PC to keep up with the increasing demands of today’s games. Is Modern Warfare running too slowly? Guess the RAM needs to be upgraded. Well the game appears pixilated too. Better get the graphics card changed as well. This tends to add up costs quickly. Not a great thing for a regular gamer like me.

If you aren’t up to the task of having to keep updating your PC’s parts and spending too many hard earned dollars for it, then give League of Legends a chance. That’s what I discovered when I tested it on my computer. My last change of parts was back in 2009 and I haven’t had the money nor the time to spend on this old hunk of junk. So I considered my options: spend a fortune for to play a game right now or find a game that doesn’t take a big requirement from my computer but is enjoyable just the same. I took the latter.

Filled with strategy and tactics, there is almost an infinite combination of possibilities with a whole bunch of characters. It’s difficult not to play a string of consecutive games in one sitting. You’ve probably heard of it already. It’s called “League of Legends” or LoL for short. This is the shit. Every gamer most likely knows what it’s about.

It really takes a basic computer to be able to play this. My 2009 Intel powered clunker can still take play this game in medium to high graphics. Just make sure your computer has a 2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and a GeForce 8800 video card or any other similar one. Even grandma’s computer can run this given a chance.

<Just don’t try your luck with something this old. You’re just asking for it>

These days, computer games are getting more complex and require you to study them in order to get the hang of it. This is not the case with LoL. I was breezing through the tutorials that are intended as introductions to the game. No need to guess your way throughout the game another. Trust me, it’s basically cakewalk to finish these quests. Just follow the cue markers and you’re all set.

What makes the game enticing is that League of Legends needs you to incorporate strategies and tactics. I played rush on full attack mode and quickly died. So that ISN’T the way to go here. Playing with your team is necessary to win the game. This isn’t a solo mission. This is about a team that lives and dies together. It’s better to talk to your teammates and let them know what’s happening on the map. If you want to play a solo game then this isn’t something you should be playing. Go enjoy a console game instead. When you play League of Legends, you better get ready to play as a team or die as an individual. Do you get what I’m saying buddy? No heroics.

<This is no solo mission! Wanna go solo? Use a console>

Take this opportunity to revel in the game by befriending other players. It’s a much more fun experience when you get to play with others. Also, why not invite your other friends to join you in the “League”. That’s what I did and boy has it paid off. I’m playing better knowing that my friends have my back and I have theirs. Remember that it’s all about strategy, tactics, and friendship. So go ahead and play the game. As for me, it’s time to get the old clunker up and running for another 5 on 5 match-up.

<The game is more enjoyable when you play with friends. Wish I had friends these hot though>

So. Who is this article for?

@ImHungry: It's for all the people who is these hot

I like the general point you make here though, Many people only care about the biggest flashiest newest games and miss a lot of really great games because of it, I'm not a big fan of LoL myself but every couple years or so I do find myself going back to a few games from a decade (or more) ago, Notably - Super Mario 3, Final Fantasy III (VI), and Utopia

As an avid LoL player, I gotta point out that most of the community can be awful.

And this seems basically like an ad.

@Ravenlight: What's the deal with the sax? I must know. EDIT: Please don't tell me it's because of "Saxism."

Unless you bought a shit computer back in 2009, it should be able to run most games at around if not better than medium settings. I can understand where you are coming from, but your opening is pretty weak and unnecessary. Drop that bit and you'll have a better article for it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks they are all clones with different styled hair, I CANNOT tell them apart.

I swear I'm not racist.

Yeah its usually best not to talk to anyone on there unless you know them, which sucks because communication makes that game a lot easier & more fun. I totally get where you're coming from with the not wanting to buy a new $60 game and simply playing an awesome free one.

I don't think this seems like an ad because when I write people say the same thing. They think I'm trying to sell the game, but really I'm just excited to be playing it and wanna discuss it's high points. There is something odd about how your article reads though, as if it's trying to appeal to only douchey males...I mean, you said babes...like you're Duke Nukem or something. It's just kind of weird and, personally makes me not want to read your article.

I'd just like to point out that LoL is pretty bad software. It runs like arse for as ancient as it looks. The client is in Adobe AIR for gods sake. I know this sounds fanboyish but dota2 runs just as well if not better on low end hardware, and is much more visually impressive, say what you will about the games other than that.
