Since 2012, 'League of Legends,' or LoL, has been the most popular game in the world. Riot Games has dominated the online gaming industry for nearly five years. If you identify as a gamer, you have undoubtedly heard of League of Legends. League of Legends is a difficult video game with a steep learning curve, but knowledge is power.

League of Legends is frequently classed as a MOBA, or multiplayer online battle arena, but the game contains many characteristics of other genres. MOBAs often incorporate RTS, or real-time strategy, throughout the entirety of the game. In a nutshell, League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena in which two teams of five players compete for a common goal. MOBAs, such as League of Legends, frequently demand greater dexterity and planning than lightning-quick trigger finger reactions.

How is League of Legends played?

League of Legends is one of the most complex games available and is not renowned for its easy learning curve. It is a tough and brutal game that can also be extremely rewarding. The difficulties of organizing plans and familiarizing oneself with each champion are overwhelming. Over time, players will execute new strategies and conform to the norm, but the skill gap will continue to widen. LoL is an ever-changing game, which is one of the primary reasons for its continued dominance.

Categories of League of Legends Champions

League of Legends features six distinct champion categories:

  • Assassins - Move swiftly and inflict high damage on a single target. These champions are ideal for brief battles and escaping to safety.
  • Fighters/Bruisers - These champions can both deal and absorb a great level of damage. Combatants flourish in extended conflicts.
  • Mages - These champions are most effective at a distance. If mages are adequately shielded, they can do significant damage while remaining untouchable.
  • Marksmen - Similar to wizards, marksmen are more effective while doing damage from a distance.
  • Support - The primary function of support characters is to magnify the skills and abilities of their teammates.
  • Tank - Comparable to fighters, tanks are most effective as "damage sponges."

Every champion possesses a unique combination of talents and a single bonus. There is a great deal of information to assimilate, which might make new players anxious. Players with thousands of hours of experience understand how each champion plays, which champions are the best choices for a match, and the game's mechanics in depth. In League, putting five players together and expecting results is a terrible strategy, as there are other factors to consider. Every champion and player has a certain function, which they must execute flawlessly.

Principal objective

The primary objective is to demolish opposing installations such as turrets. Turrets are capable of doing significant damage, and if there are no other minions nearby, they will deal that damage to a single champion if they remain inside turret range. As long as no other ally champion has 'turret aggro,' players who assault an enemy champion underneath an enemy turret become the next target for that turret. When assaulting a turret, champions require as many attacking minions as possible. If an opponent's inhibitor is destroyed, a super minion will be granted for five minutes.

Leveling Up

A champion's level must increase in order for him or her to compete with the opposing squad. Kills grant experience, which is required for leveling up. While defeating a minion earns a small amount of experience, killing an enemy champion grants a substantial amount more. It is vital to kill minions early in a match, as this is the most efficient way to obtain gold and experience. As a player obtains more experience and gold, they may use it to level up their abilities and purchase goods. It is vital to note that champions in close proximity to a kill share its experience, but not its gold. Gold is only shared between players who recently killed or assisted in the killing of an enemy champion, or on tower platings. Last-hitting is one of the most essential and vital abilities a League of Legends player can acquire.


Gold enables players to purchase things that provide champions with perks. There are several champion perks, including as passive armor enhancements and temporary shields. League of Legends contains over 200 items, and determining the optimal "build" is time-consuming. The game provides suggestions and recommendations for item builds for beginner players. There are countless construction tactics, but it is crucial to choose one that complements your play style. A construction technique that worked for a buddy may not work for you.

Season 11 of League of Legends intends to simplify the onboarding process for new players. Riot Games is changing the user interface of the shop to make purchasing stuff easier. One of the next new features is a more accurate item suggestion that indicates which items are beneficial to the champion and, more importantly, why they are beneficial. This should significantly reduce the learning curve, especially when playing a new champion.

Lane Control

In League of Legends, establishing lane dominance is crucial. If a champion is unable to establish control over their lane, they will fall behind in terms of leveling. Control of a lane is achieved by killing minions and foes, gaining levels, and protecting turrets and structures. If a champion clears and controls a lane, they will have an unobstructed view of the enemy base.

The open spaces between each lane are known as the jungle. There are monster camps in the jungle that spawn new monsters every few minutes. The jungler's job is to eliminate these creatures, which give team or individual champions with bonuses. Killing creatures at the optimal time to activate these abilities can represent a significant momentum change.


Understanding the dragon feature is one of the more difficult aspects. Once, the dragon was a way for a team to gain a substantial amount of gold every few minutes. Currently, every dragon egg has the potential to evolve into one of four elements. Each element grants unique bonuses, such as health regeneration with Ocean or increased movement speed with Air. Teams will attempt to destroy these dragons whenever they spawn in order to receive these bonuses. After killing a certain number of dragons, a team will obtain the dragon soul, which grants the dragons a permanent bonus. When this occurs, the next dragon to birth will be the Elder Dragon, a major end-game objective. The Elder Dragon is equipped with an execute, meaning that reaching a specific health threshold would automatically kill an enemy.

Baron Pit

The Baron Pit is the second target of significance. Two objectives exist within the Baron Pit. The Rift Herald is one. This boss spawns roughly eight minutes into the game and can respawn if it is killed before 13:45 game time. When players kill a boss, it drops an eye, which they can utilize to produce a friendly Herald that can charge hostile towers and deal significant damage.

Baron Nashor is the second monster in the Baron Pit. The Baron Nashor grants all players on the team who got the last hit on Baron a significant bonus. This boost improves the overall amount of attack power, attack damage, aura that buffs nearby minions, and recall time by four seconds. This effect lasts three minutes or until the target is killed. To obtain these buffs, it is essential to have a jungler and excellent collaboration due to these three objectives.

Who are the best League of Legends players?

Several League players experience the same fan weariness as NBA and NFL athletes. Lebron is regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, yet another basketball enthusiast may disagree. As esports continue to grow and flourish, player decisions are greatly influenced by fan opinions.


Gen.Park G's "Ruler" Jae-hyuk is one of the top marksman players in the world. In 2017, the previous world champion was part of Samsung's World-winning roster. Since the squad changed its name to Gen.G, Ruler has been their marquee player. Now that Gen.G has finally qualified for Worlds 2020 after a lengthy absence, Ruler's strength in 2020 makes him feel just as lethal as in 2017. The most crucial aspect of this story is that Ruler has recruited former T1 player Kim "Clid" Tae-min and other notable Koreans to his team, proving to the world that he is still a formidable marksman superstar.


Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok is a League of Legends player for T1 from South Korea. Faker is well-known for his extremely technical gameplay and ability to play nearly any champion flawlessly. Faker and his former teammate Bae "Bengi" Seong-ung are the only players to have won the world championship three times. Faker was offered a "unprecedented" new deal by T1 that would keep him on the squad in 2018. Faker is a part-owner of the T1 organization and an active member of the squad in 2020, despite his long tenure at the top.


As alluded above, though, another international celebrity is vying for Faker's reputation. In 2020, the new LPL superstar known as knight is dominating. This prodigy has been a member of Top Esports's team for years at this point. Now that the other members of the team have reached celebrity status, knight is the shining knight. Knight is the MVP of the LPL Summer Split with seven first-place honors. We haven't seen a player like this in a very long time; perhaps this is the year he establishes his mid-lane dynasty against the rest of the globe.

What are the most important events and/or competitions?

World Championships

The League of Legends World Championship is a professional tournament sponsored annually by Riot Games. Teams compete in the final at the conclusion of each season for the title, the 70-pound Summoner's Cup, and the $1 million championship cheque. In 2017, more than 60 million viewers watched the tournament, shattering the previous year's record of 50 million. The LOLWC's ceremonial performances and broadcasting quality have been commended. In 2017, purchases of the 2017 Worlds Championship Ashe skin collected almost $2 million, which went towards player salaries and prize pools.


Since 2015, the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) has been an annual League of Legends event. It is the second-most significant competition of the year after the World Championship. The Spring Split champions from each of the five major regions compete at MSI to celebrate the halfway point of the season. Five of the most competitive teams from each regional league are featured in the MSI, along with a wildcard team from a less prominent region. A few weeks prior to the MSI, the International Wildcard Invitational determines the wildcard team.
