LOL Special Features

The game’s origin is similar to that of another MOBA game known as Dota 2. To be more precise, they had one common ancestor, an amateur map for Warcraft 3. It inspired the developers from Riot Games to create League of Legends. They were actively assisted by Steve Fick, who had his hand in the creation of that very modification for Warcraft 3. The game was released in the fall of 2009 and was immediately welcomed by the gaming community. We can even say that it became a sensation and changed people’s minds about what online games should be. The project turned out to be so successful that it quickly gained an audience of regular players and fans. To this day, the game does not cease to be interesting for gamers, as the developers regularly make changes and variety in gameplay. Besides, Riot Games actively develops the esports direction, supporting fans’ initiatives, working on the creation of the fan content, etc. The game even has its own music band, and there is a cartoon based on the LoL story.

It is also worth explaining what the game is all about. As in other MOBAs, in this game, we see a confrontation between 2 teams, taking place in a 5-on-5 player format. Team players choose their own champions to control during the match. Each champion is endowed with unique abilities and skills that will be implemented during the battle. To win, the team must get to the enemy base and destroy their main structure, the nexus. At the same time, the team needs to protect their base from the encroachments of the enemy champions and minions. To understand the rules of the game and the essence of gameplay better, we recommend watching the broadcasts of professional esports competitions. Pay attention to the schedule of LoL matches. It will let you know when the upcoming LoL tournaments are held.
