Only if there is a Champion that is overpowered that no one plays, which, currently, there is none. So, no advantage, no disadvantage.

No, it's been said. Paying really doesn't give you an advantage, unless you buy a character that noobs qq about because they can't counter it at a low level because you have RP. Either way, when you level up, people will begin being able to counter them, and you will have to fight without an advantage.

Yes but does paying give you an advantage like in Free2Play MMORPG's?


Ultimately in the end, everyone's on the same footing.

Play enough games to unlock everything that affects gameplay (skins are cool though, but unnecessary).

Play enough games to get the experience to be competitive and pwn everyone else.

There's nothing that requires ridiculous amounts of luck to get, only skill and decent teammates.

Its free, it just takes you to play the game a little bit to buy what you want. It all depend on which champs you want to buy.

So LoL is pretty much just a F2P DotA with micro transaction?

Essentially yes, with some minor differences, this is what League of Legends is.

Riot doesn't sell power. They do, however, sell cosmetics and convenience.

You will not be losing to players that are less skilled than you*.

*Or at least not because they pay and you don't. You may lose because of champion choice, team composition, feeders, lag, etc.... but you wont' lose because they pay and you don't.

You can unlock EVERYTHING in the game simply by playing it (you get points when you win/lose games) EXCEPT skins (which do nothing but change the appearance of champions).
