League of Legends, to describe it in a general way, is a strategic game. If I said it to its avid fan, though, he would probably kill me. League of Legends mixes elements of a game of skill with a real time strategy and a very specific map layout to create an all-new genre: MOBA (massive online battle arena). It is not the precursor of course and it is not the only game of this kind, but it surely is the most popular one.
It is all inspired by Defence of the Ancients, an old, popular map from Warcraft III. The game, though the plot is not the thing that has addicted thousands of people, is set in a typical fantasy realm called Valoran. That world is full of countries that disagree on everything on which you can possibly disagree. After years of wars that were crippling the nations, all of them decided to create the League of Legends. From then on, all conflicts would be settled by duels or small battles of the legendary heroes, without the whole nations having to suffer. As the above mentioned legends, the players fight on closed arenas similar to typical maps from real time strategies.
In every battle, there are two teams. Depending on the size of the map chosen, each team consists of three or five players, with the latter mode being much more popular and one game, much longer. We can choose our character between every single battle. It is only our account that can level up permanently: in a normal battle, all players start out with a level one character, only levelling up during the battle to start all over again in the next one. During a match, we can also gather gold that falls out of killed minions. In a store located in the middle of our team’s base, we can buy potions and pieces of equipment that can help us on the battlefield or further specialize the character, raising some particular stats useful for our attitude to the game.
