In an age when games can range upwards of $50 or include monthly fees just to play, it is refreshing to see a free game that draws more than a paltry number of fans. Enter League of Legends (LoL). This free action RTS from Riot Games boasts more active players than World of Warcraft without the soul-sucking aspects of an MMO. Having sold my soul to WoW once (we won’t go into detail about how I got it back), I was very cautious when I first heard of LoL. When I finally broke down and gave it a go, I was surprised to find it to be fun and casual. But the scope of LoL goes well beyond that. Over the next six months, I developed a love-hate relationship with one of the most successful eSports PC games.
