How is League of Legends?

Developed by Riot Games, League of Legends is played online on PC. It is free and falls within the multiplayer online battle arena genre. What’s that? It is a format in which two teams face each other with the objective of destroying the opponent’s defensive structures until they reach the main structure.

Competitors move through set lanes of the map and are aided by computer-controlled supporting characters. In general, the games last 15 or 20 minutes and the groups range between 3 and 5 players. The team that eliminates their enemy’s central structure becomes the winner.

Each player controls a “champion”, who would be the character with whom he goes out on the battlefield and who has certain abilities that complement each other within the group. In turn, they occupy strategic spots within the matchup arena: top laner, mid laner, jungler, bot laner, and support.
