There’s never been a better time to play League of Legends, and if you have family and friends who haven’t yet taken the plunge into serious gaming, it’s a great time to introduce them now. League is a casual enough game that almost anyone can get into playing it—the game is addictive by nature, and almost everyone who gets a hold of it is instantly hooked. There’s something about the simplicity of it that draws new players in and keeps them interested for hundreds or even thousands of hours. It’s a good reason to get your real-life friends in on the fun, or to play with your family members.
There are so many champions available on the free rotation that beginners can really get a hang of. As you might know if you’ve been playing League for a minute, there are a wide selection of different champions all with their own distinctive skill caps. Providing guidance for new players is a rewarding experience, and teaching the ins-and-outs of the game can be really fun, especially if you’re helping out one of your friends or family members. Thankfully, you can get started playing League for free, and since there is no initial investment, it carries no risk.
If you end up turning your friend or family member on to the game and they become a serious player, you’ve got another person to play with in queues. It’s always more fun to play with people you already know, as there’s a pre-existing relationship between you, and that makes the game a lot more laid back. At the same time, I wouldn’t recommend introducing new players to the competitive side of League to begin with, as we all know the community can be a bit toxic. Start small and see if they like it, then go from there and provide guidance as things progress.
You might end up introducing someone to their favorite new hobby. League is played by millions of players, and the community is growing every day. Consider how grateful you’d be, as an active League player, if you hadn’t known about the game and you were suddenly introduced to it by a friend of yours. For some of you, you might have started out playing the game in college or high school after one of your friends introduced you to it, so you know what I’m talking about.
For players who are looking to get the most out of the game, consider a boosting or coaching package to unlock rewards you might not normally be able to get your hands on. What could be nicer than gifting your family member an account that is pre-boosted for them, then teach them how to play at a higher level of skill with the help of one of our professional coaches? Granted, you don’t even need to do this to have fun in League. Start small and work your way up with them, and you’re bound to have a blast introducing them to the excitement of mechanics that you often overlook with your own greater level of experience.
