Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends, is responsible for ensuring that their games remains popular. They constantly stay in touch with the gaming community to gain feedback and input on how to further improve League of Legends. Riot Games remains dedicated to both its fans and the game.
What Is So Special About League of Legends?
League of Legends is a social game, and more than often, playing it requires a considerable amount of teamwork. A total of 5 players can play the game together as a team. This is one the reasons behind the popularity of this game and why players enjoy playing it so much. League of Legends is among the games meeting the rising demand for competitive and enjoyable multiplayer games. Live streaming through websites like Twitch TV has also contributed to this game’s popularity.
How Is League of Legends Played?
There are a total of 121 champions in League of Legends that players get to choose from and play as. Teams of up to 5 players battle against each other with the goal of destroying the other team’s Nexus, which tends to be their base structure. There always three lanes dividing a playing map, each with an inhibitor and three turrets. Before being able to attack the other team’s Nexus, players have to destroy all three turrets in whichever lane they have chosen.
Each team also gets its own AI controlled minions and neutral monsters also appear near the jungle paths in each lane. Players can gain experience and gold by killing the other team’s champions and minions. The champions automatically level up once a specific amount of experience has been gained and players receive a point that they may spend to improve one of their champion’s abilities. All champions have four abilities. The highest level that a player’s champion may reach is the 18th level.
To effectively maneuver around minions and turrets, players must have knowledge of their behavior and know what to expect when they are near them. Players, especially beginners, often get killed by turrets because they simply do not prioritize targeting them.
Each of the three lanes has a predefined route through which minions move. Whenever one team is being attacked by the other, the minions and turrets move to help their respective team. Turrets focus more on helping out the champions than the minions of their team. Even minions attacking the other team will be targeted by that team’s turrets.
Can Anyone Attend League of Legends Events?
Indeed, it is not necessary for a person to have experience playing League of Legends in order to attend an event, much like any sports game. In fact, just by attending a League of Legends event, many people develop an interest in the game and begin playing it themselves.
