The game was terrible in alpha. Which is understandable because alpha. But still, it turned me off from playing until the beta came out. And then the beta turned me off from playing until full release.

It was dumb

It was really really dumb

There was no set meta at all, everyone was trying to figure out things

Sion Taric top vs Teemo Annie top was possible

LOOK AT HOW PEOPLE ITEMIZED BACK THEN

Beta was way better. Alpha also crashed a lot when there was too much Singed Poison on the screen...

Oh and there were brushes EVERYWHERE. Like for no reason. Baron and Dragon both had large brushes infront of their pit.

Funny how the chat/friends UI stayed the same.

That was the beta UI and I remember it well. I quite liked it but there was no way League was ever going to be taken seriously if they kept that.

I wasn't around for the Alpha but the Beta was hilarious as well. Me and a buddy of mine used to roll Cho and Sion top lane all the time and stomp pretty easily. The game was so new at the time you could do things like that. It'd be almost unthinkable now.

TF kept his global teleportation for quite a while after Beta release. I remember an easy way to troll games (this was before any sort of Tribunal or Leaver Buster) was to go in as TF with Revive/Teleport, immediately Gate into the enemy base, let them kill you, then Revive and Teleport to first mid tower and let the mid laner kill you before leaving. Caused quite a bit of rage.
