The starter pack will feature an assortment of entry-level champions plus a few temporary boosts to XP and IP gained by the player.
If you've got a special someone you want to share the joys of League of Legends with, Riot Games has launched a new starter pack to help get new players into the game. Launching today on the game's North American server, the starter pack unlocks eight champions - Warwick, Master Yi, Sivir, Garen, Ryze, Ashe, Annie and Nunu - and throws in a XP boost that lasts for 10 wins and an IP boost good for four wins.
The pack offers a solid mix of characters, featuring long-range and close-range damage dealers, mages and a few tankier bruisers. The total cost of the package is 530 Riot Points, which breaks down to slightly more than $4. If you're a more experienced League player who just hasn't picked up these characters yet, it's still a good deal as the price on the starter pack comes to about the same cost as buying two of those champs separately. The pack will be available on all other League servers in the next day or two, according to posts left by Riot employees on their forum.
So, if you're snowed in this Valentine's Day with your significant other and you still have a decent internet connection, maybe now's the time to introduce them to one of the world's most popular online games. Just make sure you take them through the tutorial a few times first. There's nothing romantic about being Pentakilled right out of the gate.
