I know some people on here are already playing this game
League of Legends is similar to DOTA (Defense Of The Ancients–a mod to Warcraft 3). It’s on Windows PC, but it will be coming to Mac OS X soon.
It’s like a 5-on-5 (or 3-on-3) RTS game, except you only control one character (but you have various items and skills for that character and you level him/her up during the game). Average 25-70 minute matches. The matches are very intense with a lot of technique, tactics, strategy, and teamwork. There are over 50 characters to choose from in the game and they are designed around various themes like Tanking, DPS, Endgame strength, etc…
It’s easier to understand if you watch someone play the game, or play it yourself. Tricky to explain, but it’s not that complicated in execution.
Those in contact with me recently know that I’ve been obsessed with League of Legends for 3 weeks now and it is a damn good game!
It’s also free to play with no strings attached and they rotate the free characters each week. After you play awhile, you’ll have enough points to unlock characters to your account (or you can buy them with real money if you wish).

My username is, as usual, Chanchai.
P.S. Even if you’re already playing Starcraft II, you can always play this game on the side. It’s free so no worries there. If your machine can handle Starcraft II, it can handle this game easily! It’s easier to learn on the side (in theory anyways) since you are focusing on just one character while you play, but it’s still deep, fun, and challenging. Give it a shot!
The game is also featured at WCG this year (and apparently Justin Wong is playing, but I’m guessing that has to do with Ultimate Gamer?).
