Please monitor how much your kids are playing this game! Before you realize it they are so addicted that asking them to get out of a game sends them into a rage. They sneak in their playtime even playing in the middle of the night. My son maintained his good grades but slowly became combative, depressed and completely addicted to this game to the point that it affected our whole family.
Maybe some, maybe even the majority of kids don't react the same way but just please monitor before it gets out of hand.

Adult Written by Mast3rShake February 4, There is one character who carries around a keg of suds and drinks from it and that is it! Is a kid really going to start mimicking the game by walking around with a wooden keg drinking from it?
I was going to start a League of Legends club at school but unfortunately you have to install Adobe Air which has too many vulnerabilities that the district does not want to deal with so we aren't able to load the game on the computers. Outside of that if you really want to play the game as a team in a constructive environment it is an extremely challenging game.
You are talking about a game in which a second feels like forever and clicking half a second too slow may cause your team a fight. The coordination it takes is incredible. However, as with most video games that teenagers are involved in there are people acting like teenagers.
People will swear in chat it is blocked outrage in the game, argue, and even troll make the game bad for his or her own teammates to his or her enjoymentbut that is the internet. The violence in the game is fantasy violence that is unrealistic so I wouldn't be concerned about that unless you are the type of person that wouldn't let your kid read Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. Overall it is a very challenging game the does demand quite a bid of time if you want to be a top tier player.
I think it is a great game if you have five people and need to learn to work as a team because it is extremely challenging in that aspect. Had useful details 1.
Read my mind 1. Adult Written by William Pokeice February 25, IT should be Pegi 7 It's really good and even Minecraft is more violent than this I recommend to Parents to Watch your kids play it for the first 5 - 10 mins And then decide if you should Ban it or let them play but its a really good game and the tutorial makes it so easy to use!
This title contains: Positive Messages. Positive role models. Helped me decide 1. Adult Written by Owlblocks July 5, The game itself isn't the problem. League is a great game. It involves teamwork and strategic thinking, and it's very fun. The main content issue would be that many of the female characters are blatantly sexualized.
This could be a problem, but it isn't explicitly sexual to the point of being up to you to decide. But the game content itself isn't the biggest issue. That would be the playerbase. Now don't get me wrong.
League has a lot of amazing people. The majority are fine, and many are friendly, motivational and supportive. But a very noticeable minority are toxic and negative, and that can pose problems. They might single out you or your child, especially if they feel you are the one responsible for losing. This is especially the case if you play jungle. I would also recommend managing your own emotions. I find that League of legends ignore matchmaking things like forcing yourself to say gg at the end of a game, honoring teammates, etc, help improve your mood especially when you really feel like it wasn't a good game; force yourself to smile and say it and it makes things better, for me at least.
Encourage your child to ignore harassment towards them, and stand up against it when directed at others.
A team member that stands up will usually draw in others and help rally people against the toxic team member. Being kind, even to those that aren't kind to you, can help soften people's attitude. The most important thing in league is to try being as positive as possible, as that usually makes people more positive to you, and has the guaranteed result of one less negative person and one more positive person playing league.
Remember to "Stay Positive", and that "Losing is just a way to shine even brighter". Adult Written by Jiggy July 4, I've played League of Legends for 4 years. This will be my last.
The game is a great game. It WAS a great game. Unfortunately, the company's inability to actually punish legitimate troublemakers in game has really taken it's toll on matchmaking and odds are you're going to get stuck with some punk that has nothing better to do than curse at you, throw games, leave, sabotage your gameplay, and overall make your experience playing a living hell.
You will be insulted, you will be subject to horrible racist comments, and idiotic people in the chat logs constantly berating you with insult after insult. You can mute the chat log, but muting them only makes their toxic behavior worse. They will interfere with your playing and make it impossible to win.
It's gradually gotten worse and worse, and I really don't have any fun playing it anymore. F U Riot.
Thanks for the memories. I'm done with you.

Games of League consists of teams of 5v5 or 3v3 matches that can last up to an hour.
