A fun game to play but mired by a dire community; I have logged a fair amount of hours in this game and the most common issue I have is the insipid, immature and vitriolic community that play it. Like most games that have any aspect of online play and contact with other people the game is dogged by people who have never learned to accept losing or indeed, dying in a game and of course being a team game the choice is often to blame others for losing rather than yourself.
I have had people tell me to go and kill myself more times than I care to remember for the simple act of dying to a team with better communication, tactics and methods of playing together. There is such a sense of anger, hatrid and disrespect within the confines of the community of this game and therefore I urge people NOT to play this game; play locally with friends or people you know but don't subject yourself to the digusting filth that frequent the online, random community it just isn't worth it. I simply can't recommend a game that houses such disgusting people, the kind of people I play games to get away from.
Going to answer some of the more mature comments in response to this review by updating:
I can't in good conscience give this game a positive review despite playing it for so long and continuing to do so; it is an incredibly addictive game however addiction does not constitute a good game. (Slot machines are addictive but they are hardly a good game)
There are far too many aspects of online play (which is the only mode worth playing in a 3v3 MOBA) that are the cause of frustration such as the ability for players to force the start of a match even when the other team have only 1 or 2 human players they then proceed to feed (increase level) by repeatedly killing the laughable A.I controlled characters (who fill the empty space where another human should be).
The connection online is P2P (peer to peer) which opens opportunities for incredibly easy hacking and latency issues (if the host is rinsing their internet the game lags and is unplayable) which wouldn't be so much of an issue except that when you lag or another player lags they get castrated by the other players and abused. As I've stated before the community in this game is at times, disgusting but there are moments of gold, they aren't worth the other stuff you have to go through in order to find them.
How some people have reacted even to this review is a good example of the issue, assumptions and flaming instead of mature discussion with reasoning. I want so desperately to love this game as I have spent nearly 600 hours in it but it seems every day more bad happens than good (as a result of the horrible community and structure of online play) one day I hope to either convert this into a positive review (as a result of various fixes/additions to the game) or leave the game forever, until then this review is staying as-is.
