Interested in a beginners guide?
League of Legends "and the MOBA genre in general" is known to have quite a high learning curve and tend to scare new players off. In almost every LoL related thread here on Giant Bomb, I see people showing a small interest in playing but can't be bothered or are scared to learn the game.
Now, I and resident member @Azteck and a few of our friends, want to try making a very basic video guide for new players. Stuff we want to show would range between UI/control stuff and some of the basic rules that every game follows, such as laning, team setups, character roles and all the silly jargon that goes with it. If these videos are received well enough, we also want to go with some more in depth tactics and guides for individual champions.
So my question to you, if we make this, would you watch it? It will of course be free, but we intend to host it on our own site.
Sounds like a great idea. I hit level 30 recently but I still suck and have alot to learn, I'd be particularly intrested in the individual champion guides. A suggestion, while this would be a ways off since it'd make more sense to cover basic gameplay first, to not just make champion guides but to also have a full game played as each of the champions to go with it? It's one thing to hear about builds, skill orders, combos and so on, but seeing them in effect over a full game would give a great "big picture" idea of how to effectively play any given Champion.
Also, a "common dumbass mistakes" video would be awesome, things like chasing wounded a enemy into their jungle and tower diving at low levels (c'mon we've all done it).
People may want to search around on www.leaguecraft.com or do a google search. There are, iirc, a few guides like this knocking around already. Problem is, the game changes month to month, so anything beyond the very basics gets outdated a few months down the line.
But yes, it's a good idea even if there are others! MOBAs are great fun once you get into them, so anything that smoothes out that learning curve is only a good thing.
