---Having played this game for several months during the closed beta, I can only state that the game keeps getting better. At first impression, gameplay was already an amazing experience.
---The game consists of a matching system, where you are matched with other players to form a team. You each select a hero and are placed against another team of heroes to invade the enemy base while defending your own.
---By purchasing the collector pack, you are giving yourself a head start into the world of LoL. You will not regret the purchase and even if you do, the Riot staff has superior customer service and will complete your satisfaction.
---The characters are very lively and fun to play. Each has their own fun attitude and great sound clips. While the graphics felt a bit childish at first and too bright, I've grown quite fond of them as they are quite personal. Animations are great.
---The gameplay is always changing, meaning each match always feels like a new game. The re-playability of the game is amazing, all things considered. You can make excellent come backs and really get great satisfaction from playing a match or two.
---The game rewards talented players with excellent tactics. There is little luck involved in the game and your skill can determine the success if your entire team. Each player has a key role in victory.
---No cost of entry. While you do not have to purchase the game to play, having the collectors pack aids in future development of the game while giving you a head start on hero selection. The 20 heroes included are very well balanced and give you tons of playing styles to choose from. There are 3 ranged DPS champions, 5 melee DPS champions, 2 support champions, 5 tank champions, and 5 mage champions.Read more ›
Now to the game. League of Legends is a standalone successor to the Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients- essentially an arena deathmatch action RPG. Think Dawn of War 2 without the units, or for us oldsters, Nox multiplayer (that alone should get you interested). Players choose an avatar with unique abilities then head out to one of 3 unique killing fields to assault capture-able points, destroy enemy towers, fight streams of minions, and assassinate enemy players. Throughout the battle your hero will level up gaining new abilities; you can also buy them equipment to further customize how they play. This all resets after every fight, but winning increases your "summoner" level, and allows you to buy new champions and persistent upgrades that you take into each fight. Combat is hectic and fun, and the short match times of LoL (about an hour at the most for a tense match on the largest map) help keep frustration low.Read more ›
Rather than typing a long detailed idea about the game itself and mechanics. You can see in great detail provided by other posts of how the mechanics of the game work. (Including the pro's and con's.)
My decision was after getting into the game for free, I started realizing that for what they are offering:
A) $10 gift card
B) Unlocking of various characters without needing to 'grind' to get them.
This would save me a lot of time. Plus the simple thought of compensating the developers for a worth while game can't hurt either.
For the player who wants to take a break from the typical mainstream stuff. I would definitely recommend it. This caters to that 'casual' game play feel where I can log in, play a round or two, and log off. Versus other types of games where you're racing to reach lvl XX as soon as possible, or chasing the proverbial carrot for the latest gear and 'grinding' for the next 4-8 hours.
The only pitfalls which you'll see in other posts are the wide spectrum of players/mentalities. As with most multiplayer online games, the lure to become an online pain in the bootie becomes greater with anonymity. So you'll have your fair share of bad apples from time to time. But on that same point, I have also had some great experiences of camaraderie. Regardless, it is a fun game to play.

I have played this game for over a year now.
The teams are never balanced when I play solo ranked 5v5.
Their match making system is very poor.
