About the Game:

League of Legends (abbreviated LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games.

In League of Legends, players assume the role of an unseen “summoner” that controls a “champion” with unique abilities and battle against a team of other players or computer-controlled champions. The goal is usually to destroy the opposing team’s “nexus”, a structure which lies at the heart of a base protected by defensive structures. Each League of Legends match is discrete, with all champions starting off fairly weak but increasing in strength by accumulating items and experience over the course of the game.

League of Legends consists of three main maps, or “Fields of Justice,” each have different terrain, objectives and victory conditions, as well as varied summoner spells and items.
