League of Legends Overview
League of Legends is a F2P, Moba game by Riot Games. It’s one of the first stand-alone multiplayer battle arena style games based off the incredibly popular DotA map for Warcraft 3. Despite being one of the oldest stand-alone MOBAs, the game remains the most popular.
In fact, with over 67 million monthly active users, League of Legends is the world’s most popular PC game. The premise of the game is quite simple – two teams of five battle it out and win by destroying their opponents main structure. Individual games typically last 35-45 minutes, but in some instances they can drag on for well over an hour.
With an ever-increasing pool of playable champions (120+) and radically new changes every season, this beautiful game never gets stale. LOL is immensely successful because it’s fun at all skill levels. The basic premise of the game is easy to grasp, but mastering it takes years of dedication.
Competitive players can test their skills in ranked matches and climb their way up the ladder. Currently, the ladder divisions are as follows: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master, and Challenger.
