League of Legends is a game developed over the years. In the beginning, it was just a game but now it has grown to be a lot more.
What is League of Legends?
League of Legends (or LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre video game developed by Riot Games. The game was first announced on October 7, 2008, and released a year later on October 27, 2009.
Players are formed into two even teams primarily composed of five members. Each team starts at opposing sides of a map, near what is called a “Nexus”. To win a match, a team must destroy the opposing team’s Nexus. To do so, each team must work through a series of towers called ‘turrets’ that are placed along three paths to each base (commonly referred to as ‘lanes’).
