LoL First Impressions..

Woo yea!! Got a new template for the blog. I was browsing for ways to create a dynamic button using CSS for my website and suddenly, I came across some templates for blogs. So, I decided to get one for my blog. It was relatively less time consuming and once I figured out how to retain the widgets while changing the template, it was a simple matter of copy-paste. I'm sticking with the black theme because, well, I just like black themes.. :D

Anyways, lets step out of the real world for a minute. The climate has been heavenly for the past couple of days. The sun has barely been visible and it has been raining most of the day. If you go out on your bike, the cold wind makes you feel like you are in some hill-station. Its probably too bad that I'm spending most of my day sitting in-front of my computer. Sadly, we don't hang out on the streets with friends like we used to.

I tried my hands at League of Legends today. Its a game which combines the concept of DotA with elements of an MMORPG. Some famous developers of DotA are involved in the development of LoL. Besides that, its a free game and so, I had to give it a shot. On paper, the concept seems really cool. You get a summoner which is basically like your Wow character and this levels up as you play more games. Then, once you enter a game, its the same heroes, items and towers with two more spells from your summoner.

Chat and stats are built right into the game. The interface looks pretty good but the characters are more like animes. This may be a good or bad thing depending on whether you like animes. Inside the game, they have tried to make things easier for a new comer by recommending heroes and items. Then again, its going to take some time for me to go through them. The biggest challenge is probably to retain interest till we get familiar with all the spells and the items. As far as first impressions go, the game looks pretty promising. Will try it for a couple of more days and maybe then, I can make a call on this.
