Does anyone else here play this? This is my recent free game obsession. I'm trying to avoid getting caught up in any more subscription based games, so I gave this one a shot.
I'm pretty much addicted to this game now. It has the right balance of things you want to pay for, versus the ability to grind out items and characters, that I don't mind the fact that you can pay for upgrades.
My character of choice is Ashe. I also like Miss Fortune and Sivir. I can't say that I really get melee - but that's pretty much the case for me in any game. I seem to always go with ranged characters if I have a choice.
Summoner name RebelliousDink, usually go with Blitzcrank. Seems to compliment a damage carrier especially well, rock out the assists.
That being said, if you can carry me to victory, I can bodyguard for Ashe all day on the outside lanes.
If anybody is getting into the game I highly recommend the starter card, $5. Found it at Wal-Mart, but I'm sure Target has them too. The benefit is you get 5 characters and an XP and IP boost.
The only thing you need actual money for are character skins, but I've plunked a couple bucks down on some characters I thought would be neat.
If you're a beginner to RTS games or Diablo, play the beginner bots to get used to the gameplay, but once you have the controls I really recommend playing actual PVP matches; they're taken a bit more seriously, you learn the actual strategies of the game and the need for teamwork, and overall they're way more fun.
EDIT: A whole lotta stuff.

I got the Pre-order bonus disc in the mail today. I had to go to work right after it came in... but I did get it. This bodes well, since the disc was supposed to be available in stores later this week...
