What is League of Legends?
League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game where two teams of five players face off across three lanes. Players can choose from a variety of champions with different powers and abilities. It has been one of the most popular games on the market since 2009.
What is the goal in the game of League of Legends?
League of Legends is a video game in which players take on the role of a champion. The goal in the game is to destroy the other team’s nexus. To do this, players have to prepare their players, summon their champions, have them move on the map, and attack the other team’s base.
When playing League of Legends, players enter a “lane” with the objective to destroy their enemy champion’s turret. The player does this by attacking the minion waves that appear every couple of minutes in front of them and destroying their enemies’ turrets. By destroying turrets, the player earns gold, experience, and eventually a higher chance of winning the game.
Some players use third party applications like the Devilscript (lol-script.com) to gain basic tips, improve their game, and make them aware of the dangers waiting.
