LoL has advanced so deeply into its game mechanics, metagame, and professional sports world, that it could be considered an endgame development of one possible branch of MOBA design. Its accessibility to newbies leaves much to be desired, with the tutorial a muddled mess that hardly offers a glimpse into game mechanics; long YouTube video sessions by seasoned players are probably necessary in order to get the right stuff. However, after the necessary breaking-in period, players are rewarded with a tightly-woven gameplay web with unparalleled depth and polish. It's a shame that players can be so toxic in-game, but that's no fault of LoL itself; indeed, the game provides many tools with which to report such unsavory behavior.
