Bye Bye LoL

Today I deleted League of Legends from my Computer.
It is a great game for all of you who do not know it. It is a strategic game and can be played in 3vs3 or 5vs5. League of Legends (LoL) has its origin in the Warcraft 3 Map Defence of the Ancients (Dota) and is completly free. 
You have a level system where you go from level 1 to level 30. Once reached level 30 you have full access to all masteries which can give you different advantages like 5% more dmg or a lower cooldown for summoner spells.
Anyway I don't wanna give you an introduction to this game. I wanna talk about the reason why I did it.

I have very slow Internet. Only DSL1000 which means 124kb/s down. Because I still live at home I got other people who want to use the Internet too. So now imagine how less performance you can have when you share the connection with 2 others. Everybody has ~41kb/s which means: unplayable!
I had pings between 200 and 600. Couldn't move sometimes, not attack and my skills where totally useless (I played Brand - a hero where you have to aim).

I freaked out completly, kicked my trashbin in the room, screamed insults and hammered my mouse heavily on my desk. That is normal stuff which happened to my during my whole "gaming career". I wrecked 4 or 5 mouses (mice?) on this way and you can imagine that this is expensive. Each time 40€ for a new mouse? 
So this time my mx518 got damaged too. The left click sometimes double clicks and the "back" button is gone completly.
That's why I quit. I don't want this game to cost me more lifetime than it already has. I quit Counter-Strike successfully after 5 ultra intensive wasted years. I might come back to LoL again but at this time I've got enough of this.

This picture is a from the ingame - I screencaped it once because I think it's true.

  1. I feel you man, back in the days of D2, I played on dial up and my soul was crushed on a day to day basis. Just don't let it ruin gaming for you.

  3. I have less crappy DSL, 768K down which means roughly 70Kb/s.

    I mainly break mice when someone scares the living crap out of me and I slam the mouse/button.

  8. League of Legends isn't very good. It is indeed a strategic game, but so is checkers. A real mans game is and will be DotA 2 when Valve releases it. Much like Chess!!

  9. Man I used to have the same internet too, it was aweful. Playing WoW with high ping as a healer was a waste. Finally upgraded internet for only what, 5 dollars more? Definitely worth it.
