that is all fine for casual games.TheMightyOne wrote:What you say holds truth only partly. I'm pretty sure they do have all the champs unlocked. Coz its not as difficult to do as you think, even more so if you're willing to spend money. On the other hand you don't really need all the champions. You just get few champs of different sorts. Ashe for example, one of the best ranged carries in the game. She costs 450ip, you get 250ip for the first win of the day and slightly above 100 for every win (63 or something for a loss). Three games to buy one of the best carries in the game. This is not really grinding to me. Besides the weekly free champions are set up in such way that even teams which don't own a single champion can form a decent combination with the free champs. Thats the whole idea. :)
But for a game to be competitive everyone has to be in a totally even playing field i.e all runes unlocked level 30 and all champs. If it is anything other than this it is not balanced/fair.
For 30 dollars you can get HoN and for like 20 dollars you can get wc3/tft and play Dota.
LoL will never be competitive so there is no point in arguing it.
Casual fun ye sure why not.
