League of Legends is an online multiplayer/team based battle arena game where two teams of 5 potent champions face off to destroy the others base.
You can choose from over 140 champions to secure kills, make thrilling plays and take down towers as you battle your way to victory.
The aim of the game is to destroy the nexus (which is where minions spawn) within the opposition teams base- the first team to do so wins the game.
Behind the nexus is the fountain whereby you can heal and replenish your health as well as access the shop.
Your team needs to clear a lane to reach the enemy base/nexus- your path is blocked by defense structures known as turrets (deal damage and provide limited vision from the Fog of War for their team) and inhibitors (protected by turrets, when destroyed minions will spawn in the lane for a few minutes but will stop spawning once the inhibitor respawns), each lane has 3 turrets and 1 inhibitor and each nexus is guarded by 2 turrets.
There is also a jungle between the lanes filled with neutral monsters and plants. Eliminating these gives your team unique buffs and can turn the game.
There are 5 positions that make up the standard and recommended team composition for the game. Each lane highlights specific roles and player types- choose your favourite or try them all to see what suits you best.
The more XP you get the stronger your player becomes and gold allows you to buy powerful items. Prioritising these 2 things is crucial to winning the game.
Each champions has 5 different abilities, 2 special spells and up to 7 items at a time. Once again figuring out which combinations of all of these abilities works for you is crucial to help your team succeed.
