League of Legends at DreamHack Summer 2011

League of Legends is a game based on a custom map for World of Warcraft 3, where you are a summoner controlling one of the 5 or 3 champions in your team. The goal of the game is to defend your base, while you attack the enemy base and bring it down. Like I mentioned before the game is played either 3v3 or 5v5. You can join the game alone, or you can bring your friends and team up with them.
