Does anyone have any tips on starting out with LoL? I've gave it a try a few times and within 2-3 days I just cant stand the people that play it. Nobody seems to play for fun, its all competitive.

<MFW Yelled at for not knowing what "Jungle" is. I still dont know,

Biggest tip is finding a friend that knows what they're doing and make them make a low level account to teach you the basics. The jungle is the forest in LoL where the neutral monster camps spawn. Jungling is when someone doesn't go in a lane (Mid Bot Top) and kills those neutral monsters and ganks. Ganking is when someone comes into a lane and makes it a 3v2 or a 2v1. WARD AND USE POTIONS!

Find someone who knows what they're doing and have them teach you on a low level account! The jungle is the forested area in which the neutral monsters spawn. Jungling is when someone doesn't play in one of the lanes but kills those neutral monsters and ganks for the laners. Ganking is when someone comes in and surprises the enemy for a quick assault. Ward often, learn what trading with an enemy is, potion up, don't buy dorans items, learn what each champion does, and MOST IMPORTANTLY: Learn when to go in and where to be. Position is the hardest thing to learn, and the most important thing to learn.

Jungling is when someone kills those monsters in the jungle rather than fighting enemies in a lane. They do this so they can gank often. Ganking with when someone sneaks into another lane and makes that fight a 3v2 or a 2v1. WARD, potion up, don't buy dorans, and most of all: LEARN HOW TO POSITION. That whens when to engage the enemy, when to run away, when to bait your enemy into following you, and just where to be in general to not get caught by enemies. WATCH YOUR MAP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! Have fun! :D

A good way to learn would be to play against AI for a while until you get a good grasp of what you are doing, and to ask the other players in those vs ai games, as they are far less competative.

Here, I'll sum up the roles for you...
1.)ADC--This guy is the main source of damage, don't take his minions or his kills or your team will get pissed
2.)Support--Keeps the ADC alive and helps him get kills, is in charge of warding and destroying enemy wards while stopping the enemy ADC from getting minions
3.)Top--This guy is usually very tanky with a few disables...DO NOT FOCUS THIS ****** IN A TEAM FIGHT
4.) Jungler--Starts out killing neutral minions in the JUNGLE and is responsible for ganking (surprise attacking) enemies in the lanes
5.)Solo Mid--Usually a mage character whose damage is based off of ability power, very weak in close combat, protect this guy during team fights and while his abilities are on cooldown

Best tip for new players, try to stay alive. Learn to CS and kill champs/gank as you get better but first thing to learn is, not dying.

Play Bots in Custom games with friends or Co-Op VS AI. Also, play different types of characters and find the one that fits your play style best. Most people are cunts, but I have met a lot of nice people in games. Even has people who taught me when I started. Hell, I'll even play with you sometime and teach you what i know.

If you want to practice you can create custom games with just bots. That's what I did when I first joined. Once you feel that you're ready for a real game, then try to play with friends. It's much more fun and laid back. Also, it helps to know the terminology. There are lots of odd words that I had no idea what the hell they meant until I looked them up. Just some basics, hug your turrets, don't overextend in your lane, call MIA's (missing in action) if the enemies in your lane disappear, and don't feed too much. Everyone is bad when they first start (My first game i went 0 and 34). You just have to keep practicing.

And generally, the League community is full of assholes. There's always going to be that one guy on your team that yells at you for no reason at all. You just have to ignore them.

Good luck :D

Play bot games to get the basic understanding of the game, having a friend that has played for a while would be a good help. Watching streams can teach you a lot as well on a website like twitch.tv, but basically it is just one of those games that you have to play a lot to get good at and it takes a lot of practice and time. It is one of the more competitive games in a sense, and depending on what level bracket you are in the community can suck terribly.

play extremel cautious by hugging turret sometimes so you dont accidently feed. when i was new i died a lot, well i still do die a lot. once you figure the game out is when you can play more aggressive.

Yeah, one of the first things i learned when i started was that everybody is a cunt.
People were mocking and insulting me for being level 1 and not knowing the acronyms, and everybody speaks in acronyms.
Regardless of whether you win or lose there will always be a self righteous twat claiming he did all the work.
Once you get past all that, the game is quite fun.
I'm only level 8 now so i still deal with criticism but not as much.
Good luck

You can pay for champs and such, but it is free to get everything necessary. You get Influence points (IP) for playing games. IP can be used to buy champions and runes. Do not buy runes before level 20, they will be useless. The only thing that you must pay for is skins, and they aren't necessary. You can also buy champions with RP (Riot points, the stuff you pay for) but you don't need to, it just takes awhile to save up IP for some more expensive champs.
