I played it for a bit last night. It's not nearly as polished as LoL. I even found HoN to be substatially better... It was slow moving, the item system was about as exciting as Mass Effect 1. And for a game that's all about your "build" this should be a simple thing to at least get right. Every item in this has several upgrades of itself, there's no combining items either. Just Boots 1 turns into Boots 2. Sword 1 turns into Sword 2. Dull.

Gameplay was run of the mill moba. Play LoL or HoN until Dota2 comes out I think.

Oh and you can't ship a moba with a dozen champs. Just ask Demigod.

According to some avid LoL fans I know, there is a substantial LoL following in korea which this is leveraging. I played in beta and it seemed slightly better than LoL in a few respects (standard installer instead of AIR, decent responsive controls, consistent style and small easter eggs, decent graphics). It's just starting so it's hard to tell. Most importantly, it will have servers in asia so it should do fine.

Played in the beta to see how it compared to League of Legends. This game probably won't make it to the end of the year. I smell another APB...
