The League is legendary

The League is legendary

Massive armies of small, insignificant creatures rush toward one another, thick jungles and brush surrounding them on both sides. Suddenly, out of the brush leaps an enormous white lion, who quickly demonstrates his power over the pathetic soldiers. This is one of hundreds of playable champions. This is a warrior who ascends above all others on the battlefield. This is the League of Legends.

League of Legends (LoL) is a MOBA (massive online battle arena); it puts two teams of three or five champions against each other in a strategy-heavy conflict of map domination. In the midst of this battle, each team also has a continuously resurrecting army of “minions”: those little insignificant things I mentioned earlier.

With so many things to say about the game and so little space, it would be impossible for me to touch on each aspect of the immense world of LoL. In any game mode, the objective is relatively the same for both teams: take control of the map. Killing other champions is optional (and very beneficial for both the player and the team) but not necessary. This is what makes this game different from most other games I’ve played.

Although this game has been out for a while, it is constantly being updated and new champions are introduced regularly. There are countless ways to play this game and with every update, more are put into place. League of Legends can be downloaded from its home website: www.leagueoflegends.com
