I’ll level with you: League of Legends scares me. A lot. And I don’t think I’m alone in that.
As one of the most popular, most competitive esports in the world, the League of Legends community has developed something of a… reputation regarding its friendliness to newbies. Now, to be honest, I can’t say for sure whether or not this reputation is particularly well-justified or deserved, but I do know that it makes me somewhat hesitant to jump in head-first — particularly as the game has something of a tendency to become rather life-consuming once you get “Into It.”
I’ll probably satisfy myself with listening to this stirring soundtrack from the Champion Select screen for the moment, then. And for those of you who are about to go into battle… I salute you.
