As you do on your work break, you log onto your Facebook to see what the other people that you know in your life that are actually friends are doing with themselves on this fine day that you’ve just spent in your drab office. You scroll down your Facebook feed of jobless friends enjoying the sunshine with their free government money and living life to the full while you’re stuck in a cubicle when you suddenly notice this ad:
Now, at a glance, this looks like it could actually be a screenshot from the game that’s being advertised, League of Angels, but actually at closer inspection, you’ll realise that it is not. Actually, we’d wager that a few million gamers will recognise what the screenshot in this ad actually is. League of Legends is what it is, and it is easily the biggest MOBA game to date outside of the original DOTA mod for Warcraft 3.
Looking at this ad, I have no idea what League of Angels actually is, other than a game that plagiarises assetsfrom other better and bigger games. Even reading the few snippets of information on this ad tell us that it is a game in some kind of identity crisis. Even if it isn’t the ad gives that impression. To be honest, it looks like the game wants to be and play like Guild Wars from the description there. It sounds almost exactly like the first Guild Wars, but then it has a screenshot of League Of Legends, which would give you the impression that it is actually a MOBA game. Now this is really confusing. However, we like to cost companies money, so we clicked their ad. We were then greeted with this:
This game is clearly not Guild Wars or League of Legends. We don’t know what it is. It looks like it’s some kind of action RPG or point and click adventure. We don’t know. It loaded a bunch of files onto our PC before launching. We’re scared of what that means and really don’t want to continue. Any game that is untrustworthy enough to lift assets from another game, is untrustworthy to have its resources loaded into our HDD’s.
All that we know is that this isn’t anything like it was advertised to be. The art is cool though. Oh, and Trend Micro hates you for some reason. Probably viruses or hacks.
