What is League of Legends?

First of all, League of Legends is an online video game. This particular video game can be played on PC or Mac computers. You can only play online and most games played within this game are played in a PVP format. PVP stands for player versus player. The game is in real-time and most game modes average around 30 minutes.

Specifically this game is considered to be a MOBA, which stands for multiplayer online battle arena. There is a end goal to beat a game but before this goal is reached battle between players takes place. The main normal mode is played on the map titled Summoner's Rift. This is a 5 v 5 game mode where, just like in most modes, the nexsus must be destroyed to win the game. In order to reach the nexsus a team must first destroy all of the enemy towers guarding the nexsus. Battle takes place between players to stop the other team from destroying the towers and ultimately the nexsus.

This is a game that takes strategy and skill. It's a rather face paced game with games usually ending well before an hour. Some games typically end in just 20 minutes. With careful planning and teamwork you can quickly win a game. Bad decisions and not working with your team usually results into a loss.

A cinematic take on the game.

Here's the latest cinematic trailer of League of Legends. This video was made by Riot Games and is a companion to the game. Although this video doesn't show actual in-game footage it's a great cinematic take on several of the characters that are in the game.

5 stars for League of Legends for PC

My rating for League of Legends for PC

I give this gave 5 stars for many different reasons. First of all, I've been playing this game for several years now and have seen it grow over the years for the better. Sure there are glitches here and there, as most games also have, but the great thing about League of Legends and Riot Games is that they fix all glitches and errors in a timely manner.

Depending on the type of computer that you have and your internet speed will determine how good the graphics are for you. For me personally I think it's a beautiful game and each skin(costumes for the characters that can be bought) for all the characters are quite beautiful at higher resolutions. The environment background throughout each map is detailed as well with many moving and "hidden" features.

I enjoy this game because there's a mode for everyone. There are "fun" modes, competitive modes, regular modes, and even practice modes. The many different maps and game modes makes for many many hours of playtime.

New content is released monthly, sometimes even weekly, which adds to the overall game. This is a game that you can play over and over again.

Why I love League of Legends.

Now onto why I created this hub. I want to talk about the many different reasons why I love League of Legends.

1. It's a fun game that practically anyone can play.

What I like most about this game is that it's not that hard to play and when you first start out you are matched with people that are comparable to your own skill level. You can even play against the computer (AI) characters instead of playing against real people if you want to.

2. There are many modes that will keep you entertained.

There are many different modes in League of Legends. I personally like playing ARAM the most. ARAM stands for All Random All Mid. It's one of the most fun modes to play. You are given a champion at random and there's only one lane on the map it's played on. This can make for very short games. It's fun because you never know what champion you are going to get and since everyone is in the same boat as you it's okay if you don't play the best. It's just all about having fun.

3. You can meet amazing people.

I've met several people through League of Legends that I consider to be my friends. Some of these people I have now known for years. Some of us, including myself, have met up in "real life". I truly feel that these people are my friends and it's all because of League of Legends that I met them.
