Are you looking for a great free MOBA game online? Well let me tell you about League of Legends(LoL). I have now been playing LoL for over 3 months and I have to say it is one of the funnest video games I have played yet, and I have played a LOT of video games.
The premise in LoL is similar to most other MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) games. Basically you join a team of 3-5 players, choose a champion, and then fight it out against another team of 3-5 players on a map where the objective is normally to push your way through the enemies defenses and into their base. A game generally takes between 20-40 minutes and if you have played a RTS(real time strategy) game before then the controls and in-game interface will look very similar to you.
Each champion has different strengths, weaknesses, and abilities so there are a lot of different possibilities when you are choosing who to play. A lot of champions also have powers that affect other champions so you can even base your champion around supporting the rest of the champions on your team. Finally you boost your champions statistics by buying items during the match so you get to customize your champion further and really boost up the areas where you want to be strong in be it defense, attack, speed, or many others.
There are a lot of MOBA games available online and many of them are free, but LoL really stands out as the best free MOBA game online for several reasons. First it is actually and truly free. A lot of free games advertise themselves as free but then either confer in game advantages on paying members or allow them access to areas that people who don’t pay cannot get to. However in LoL everyone has an equal advantage no matter how much each of you have paid for the game. The only thing money will get you is a new look (skin) for your character which definitely be cool but will not confer any kind of in game advantage.
LoL also has the best community support of any free MOBA game online. I have tried all the MOBA games available and none of them have developers as responsive to their communities as Riot. Riot regularly makes changes in-game based off of what the users have been saying in the forums. They are also constantly introducing new content for the game. For example they design and release a new champion about every 3 weeks which keeps the game from getting old and stale.
Finally LoL is ridiculously fun to play. The controls are very simple and its easy to get hooked right off the bat. However there is a lot of depth to the game as well which makes it very fun to play for a long time afterwards.
