League of Legends BASICS
Also known as LOL. The League is one of the most competitive games ever. It is a classic MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena), where two teams compete for the defeat of the Nexus.
In order to win to equal teams of 5 persons, start near their base (Nexus) and their main target is to get and destroy their competitor’s base. To get to the enemy base they have to go through 3 lanes of damage making towers, called Turrets. Each team defends their lanes with different strategies, and various numbers of heroes to choose from, called Champions. Every Champion has different abilities called Skills. Every player masters its own champion, and makes incredible combos in order to get kills or support his teammates.
The Lanes is not the only thing they have to defend. There is a scary Jungle filled with creatures called Monsters, which also give experience and money when being killed.
Money is an important part of the game. Destroying a Turret, killing a Champion, defeating a monster or simply smashing a minion gives you certain amount, which can be spend in the shop.
In the Shop you can find a huge assortment of items giving different upgrades and unique skills.
In the Professional Competitive scene the game is presented by pro teams competing in a complex structure all around the globe, having one thing in mind – becoming the world Champion!
The different tournaments apply different formats. The most popular are best of 3 and best of 5. The current game their playing is called map. The first is called map1 the second map2 etc. Other important factors are the “First blood” and the “Most kills”, giving advantage to the team that accomplishes them.
