OP  9/23/13 9:14:43 PM#1

What do you guys think if there is MMORPG game with champions from LOL just like world of warcraft?

I think Riot should develope MMO game with their resouces.

Any thoughts?

Not every setting needs to be converted into a MMO.

LoL is popular not because of a bunch of heroes with their back stories. It is popular because of its e-sport arena pvp gameplay.

There is no need to make a MMO out of it.

^THIS, LoL is a success in its current concept it doesnt need to be converted into an MMORPG. althought it would be cool, you have to take in account that lore wise we cannot have several of the current features there, Runearth is a very unstable planet and the league was specifically created to serve as an alternative to war.

now, to the topic, it would possibly kill the IP, look at what happened with SWTOR for example. if it isnt done right the outcome is garbage, same looks like will happen with TESO...

you cant just transform any IP in an MMORPG, you would have to analize first if the mechanics on the game can be transformed to adjust to the new setting.

off topic, in that case i would choose to be from Piltover, gotta love Hextech.

actually i think the opossite should start to happen in general. Companies really need to stop killing great franchises with multiplayer online spin offs. I am specifically staring at Square Enix and their upcoming free to play Legacy of Kain online.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

I've had similar thoughts. However, not in a traditional mmo. More like a hybrid of  LOL+DAOC+Travian.

I'm curious about this. LOL is an instanced battleground in MMO terms. In what way do MOBAs rise above MMO in terms of PVP?

I think it would lend itself to the MMO genre for sure. LoL (and other MOBAs) are already so close to MMOs like WoW in terms of PvP. So much of an emphasis on theory, and such a small emphasis on mechanical skill.

Not sure if troll...  Do people really think this?  I see 3 major points in this post, all of which are just plain silly.

Everything creates huge amounts of negativity on the internet, that's what the internet is for: Negativity, porn and lolcats.

I know next to nothing about LOL, I played through path of exile if that counts. And I have really tired to get into WoW a few times but just never could...So I am probably going to get jumped for this next comment. But, didn't WoW's precursor (the warcraft series if I am not mistaken) look and behave a lot like LOL? I mean I am going off what I vaguely recall from some youtube videos a while back...But, Pre-WoW looked a lot like LOL if I am remembering right, so I can't see it as a huge unthinkable leap for LOL to later be turned into an MMORPG.

Qualifiers for failing to deliver on story (in a supposedly story driven MMORPG):
If my character starts out ship wrecked on a beach.
If my character has amnesia; But, is also somehow the chosen one.
If my character has a place of origin that they will likely never set foot in until mid-high level.

LoL is based on DotA which is a mod for Warcraft 3. Warcraft 3 itself is an RTS (base and army building) with heavy story and RPG elements, such as controlling and leveling a hero unit in each mission. In Warcraft 3 you got to travel to different lands and continents, play as different races and meet their heroes as the story progressed. It had a really good story and interesting lore/settings so that's one of the main reasons people liked it and that's why a lot of people jumped into WoW. They wanted to know what happens next in the world of warcraft. I don't think anyone likes LoL for the lore, they just play it for the gameplay. Actually the LoL lore is just a bunch of random bs that doesn't make any sense. If they somehow came up with an idea of how to make it into an MMO, I think most people would still play LoL just because it has the gameplay they like and no one really cares what happens in the world of LoL.

To start:

  • - No need to grind gameplay you don't like to get to the gameplay you do like
  • - Much greater chance of being on an even footing due to better matchmaking
  • - Less gear dependence, sometimes zero gear dependence
  • - More support for tournaments, ladders and leaderboards
  • - More of a progression experience during the combat
  • - Ready availability of a wider range of classes or characters to try out and play
  • - More diversity in the combat experience across MOBAs than across the various battlegrounds and arenas that MMOs offer (ex: Infinite Crisis, LOCO, Smite, and LoL all play very differently)

From an esports persepctive it's absolutely true. MOBAs, in particular LoL, are as as light on mechanics as any esport I can think of.

 

And when looking at all games that have pvp, LoL is much closer to WoW than other games.

LoL is like the biggest trash and disgrace to the Dota Genre so it should stay right there it is.

Seems elder scrolls IP will go the same way... sad really I've always been a big ES fan. So i would say its better to make a new franchise when making a MMO than destroy one you already have.

i actually found the Lore very complex, each group of champs from every faction has a backstory that ties players with the world. of course, some heroes have backstories that dont really get with the rest (Nasus and Renekton for example). but the history of Demacia vs Noxus is very interesting, same as the triple civil war in Freljord, or the situation with the Shadow Isles and the Void which are the main antagonist forces in the game's world (undeads and horrors from beyond)...

Not to mention you get to choose and play a much larger set of heroes with unique abilities than a MMO.

This is a perfect case of focus. Just focus on the pvp crowd and make it good .. forget a world, forget grinding, forget crafting. You don't need everything to make a good game.
