Started In League of Legends

Getting started in League of Legends can be a very challenging task. The learning curve is somewhat steep and people online can be very intimidating. Still this should not keep you from experiencing the fun of League of legends. This article will outline the steps to overcome the learning curve in League of Legends and begin owning!

First and foremost you have to GET THE GAME! I know it should go without saying but I figured I might as well cover the whole process. The first step to getting started in League of Legends is to actually download the game. It is available online for free. I have included a link to the signup at the bottom of this article.

Once you have downloaded the game begin familiarizing yourself with the controls. Fortunately they are very simple. Your abilities are bound to q, w, e, and r. To move around right click with your mouse where you want to go. Those are the main controls ion the game since the main focus of the game is moving and casting your abilities. You can also scroll across the map by moving your cursor to the side of the screen and focus the camera on your character by hitting the space bar. If you like the feel of having the camera bound to your character you can auto bind it in the options menu. If you’re a veteran FPS gamer who really likes the feel using a, w, s, d it is very easy to change them to your spell casting buttons which makes it feel very similar to an fps game.

Once you have gotten used to moving around and using your abilities it is time to start experimenting around with different champions. There are 80+ champions to choose from but generally players find a few they really like and practice with them. For now you should try out all the champions that are free and see which ones you really like playing. Some champions are much harder to learn than others but the most important thing is that you really enjoy playing a champion. So just hop in and begin playing the free week champions until you find one that you really like the feel of. Take riot’s difficulty rating for each champion with a grain of salt as well. It is an approximate rating of how hard THEY think the champion is to play and is usually pretty inaccurate. Once again the most important thing is that YOU find the champion enjoyable to play.
