I don't know where to put this, but I think there should be a LAN Option. Maybe later on where there are competitive games, people can be using LAN to setup their in-houses, scrims and such. Thus, utilizing less resources and can prevent server delay/lag.

Now I think this should go in suggestions.

There won't be a LAN Option, its going to be like it is @ World of Warcraft you can only play online on the developer servers or at special LAN Events of Tourneys of whatever where Riot will be able to come with a Server wich is able to host games, when i'm not wrong its exactly like Blizzard handles it actually with World of Warcraft.

Well I guess that okay using their servers. I haven't experience any lag at all while playing LoL. Now to think of it, this game would have blizzard like servers. I can connect from around the world and not experience any major lag or delay.

I find the concept of a game like LoL not having LAN reprehensible, but what can you do? They made the call and it'll lose a negligible amount of business, so they seem to be doing it. I think it's a decision both for and against the players since people love LAN parties, but they also hate cheating and this negates a lot of cheating. That and theft.

Also:
- No map hack
- Centralized, stronger community
- Other users lag independently and don't impact everyone in the game
- All of our Summoner system goodness which you are about to see
- Clans / Teams integration
- Etc~

The list goes on and on.

When you introduce that the game is going to be monthly fee based. It would be awesome if there was a way you could price it so there isn't a big upfront cost. Also be as generous as you can with "vacation time" on the game so I don't feel like I'm obligated to play a bunch each month just to get my money's worth.
