A Look at League of Legends

League of Legends is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) that is about a group of teams working together to destroy the enemy base. You pick a champion or rather a character to work with your team. Each character has different abilities and traits to fit different niches while each one having different colorful personalities.

Now how does this hold up to other games similar to this and overall thoughts on this.

How does it work?

League of Legends works in which you and your team will face off against another team while working to destroy the enemy structures, working together to obtain gold for items to gain an advantage over the other team and plenty more.

A lot of the game is very team based and a lot of coordination with understanding what your character does and using it well with the rest of your team.

Games usually can end up kind of lengthy time wise. Twenty minute games are the minimum time it takes for the normal mode of summoners rift. The other modes Twister Tree Line, Dominion and A.R.A.M. (All mid all random) are the faster game modes you can go play.

Riot also creates brand new game modes they rotate in and out for players to experiment with and try something new for a change with in game rewards available for meeting some requirements.

LCS Pro plays

This Game has a Huge Esports Following

League Legends is climbing in popularity with it's competitive scene growing with every day. The scene grows with new teams popping up and the competition growing with stronger emphasis on the LCS and other leagues used to run this game on a competitive level.

There will soon in the upcoming weeks, the worlds event tournament. This game has gathered quite the popularity as a result which is what also got my attention with it.

How to get into it?

The game is completely free and offers a lot of different modes to play.

Learning the game isn't as much of a problem either since this is one of the easier MOBAs to get into. Learning the abilities isn't too hard, you can click and see what they do along with little mini videos they have to show how the abilities work. If there is another mechanic with it, you can check those out and learn how they work out. That isn't that hard though mastering them in some cases can be very hard for some characters in this game.

A lot of what could complicate people would be the items in the game, there is a lot of learning when and when not to buy many of these items. As such a lot of this game is focused on gaining gold to get an advantage over an opponent. Farming minions, killing enemies and taking objectives is how you can gain an advantage over your opponents.

Learning how to do these are essential to winning in league of legends.

Runes and Masteries

Runes and Masteries

One of the other attributes to this game is the runes and masteries system. These are stats and attributes you can set-up outside of the game so you have a lot of customization you can put onto your characters before you play the game.

For an example if you are a character focused on assassination you can set-up to be better at killing. If your character has some trouble with mana and regaining health, you can set that up as well. This is also used to help you counter pick other characters you might have trouble with if you wish to try and aim for an easier time going up against them.

You have a lot of ways you can set this up so you are ready to face anything or for most situations, but it is the foresight and a little but of time to set it up.

In conclusion

I loved what this game has to offer and what I was able to tinker with, I like how I was able to try out a lot of different champions with a wide range of different abilities and personalities. I had a ton of fun playing this game and as a free to play game I would strongly recommend people try it out and give it a go.

I do think this is the best of the MOBA genera.

My Final Rating

5 stars for League of Legends
