as far as i can tell you select a hero who functions similar to the heroes in warcraft 3, but then what?
how do you know which hero is the best? what is the point of the game? is there a beginners guide anywahere?
Hmmm...well, there is no best. There are certainly OP heroes, but that doesn't mean that they're uncounterable or that they won't be nerfed. With all the people crying about Jax, I'm almost positive he'll be nerfed in the next patch. Maybe a hotfix, even.
Like some of the guys above me suggested, pick a champion who appeals to you. Someone who looks interesting. Then, play a few practice games; all with that champ. When you feel ready, take it to solo queue and have a few matches with that champ. Once you got the hang of him, you can move on to new champs.
There really isn't a point
per se. It's for fun, really. You know? Like games are supposed to be? :/
