In many ways League is what EVE is not.
You log on, you queue up, and generally you get a match-up within a minute or two. Depending on how well, or how poorly you play the match is over in 15 minutes to an hour. No blobs. Ten guys, five a side and you go at it.
It is a game where good players can excel, but also a game that is very team dependant - rare is the game that you win when someone on your team lags, disconnects or tilts badly.
The downside of that type of play though is the repetitiveness of it - yes, there is a variety of champions, but at its core it is a game of farm for gear and XP, fight, win/lose, rinse, repeat.
Which is the downfall of virtually all games - and hence our penchant for oscillating between a variety of them.

It allows a for more casual time commitments and can be slightly more solo oriented (I play at odd hours). It can pay for itself via LP, and you can fly cheaply.
I have applied to a smallish, but serious FW corp and to my astonishment they accepted my noob ass...
We will see how it goes...
