League of Legends 101

  • Commonly referred to as "League", LoL involves 5v5 matches on various 3-lane maps.
  • Created in 2009, League is now one of the top-tier esport titles in the world. 
  • Each player chooses a champion from a list of 140+. Only a single agent can be active on a team at one time.  
  • Competitive League matches take place on the map and mode called "Summoner's Rift". 
    • The objective of a team is to destroy the enemy's nexus (home base) by traversing down one of 3 lanes and defeating points referred to as "turrets". 
    • Each turret must be cleared in order to proceed down a lane. 
  • The team that destroys their opponent's nexus first will win the game. 

Mechanics

  • Players can pick from champions that fall into the following categories: 
    • Assassins, Fighters, Mages, Marksmen, Support, and Tanks. 
    • Each class has its own role to play, and players should choose their lane accordingly. 
  • Each legend has its own unique abilities, but all abilities in the game operate on a cool down. 
  • Map knowledge is essential, especially being aware of movement through mid-lane. 
  • "Shopkeepers" can supply items to players that will aid in their ability to achieve the end goal.
