One of my friends was leaving for Cali forever, and stayed with us for his last night in town.
Being the pusher of games (he’s the one who turned me into a DOTA2 fiend after years of non-gaming), he convinced me to play League of Legends with him.
Being pretty familiar with DOTA2, I thought my transition to League would be pretty smooth.
Oh boy was I wrong.
League was an entirely different beast.
For my first match, I picked Vladimir out of the medley of free-to-play characters. He seemed to be a chill fella. It was even kinda nifty that he used health for mana.
I cruised mid-lane until BAM! Akali popped out of nowhere and sliced away half of my health.
I spent the rest of the game streamrolled by Akali, until eventually, my friend stepped in and saved me.
My first game of League, I got rocked.
