So I am really really enjoying this game - after discovering this game a few weeks back and being an old dota player i jumped right in. The game is fun, the heroes are cool, and the matches are exciting.
All that being said however, I am somewhat concerned about LoL. The past 2 weeks i have really gotten into LoL however it seems like no matter what time i log in whether its noon or midnight there is always server issue problems. The game is awesome but i really can only play it less then half the time i try. Perhaps i just have bad luck and have been picking the wrong days to play, but it sure seems like its very often - almost a constant.
I guess the point is i would gladly pay a couple bucks a month to play a game that is both downtime and lag free. Are there any thoughts to instituting a type of "gold membership" type thing where you have the option to pay a couple bucks a month and get extra service or priority? I am not dying to pay for a game that is otherwise free however at this point it is unplayable for me with my timing, and the issue seems to be pretty constant over the last 2 weeks (i cant speak about before that because i just started playing) - a 5 dollar charge for example to make sure i can play when i feel like it would be worth it. You could even give people free points with the gold membership or access to new heroes first, e.t.c.
In short, its a great game but it doesn't matter if its unplayable because the proper resources are not being supplied to meet the issues.
Also worth mentioning i think are the game crashes between the actual game phase ending and you switching back to the stats screen. At times the game crashes and upon logging back in I have found that i have not earned any influence points nor have i been credited for the win i just achieved. I don't have suggestions for this one, its a bit too technical of an issue for me, but suffice to say that my pc isnt a 10 year old piece of **** - its new and doesnt crash or have issues with any other game / prog.
Thanks for your time and thoughts, see you guys around.
