What type of game is League of Legends? Well, my young friend. Let's go on a journey. Long before Fortnite and PUBG, before zombies on Call of Duty or even Goat Simulator, there was Warcraft III.

And Warcraft III had custom maps which creative minds utilized to make amazing games like Tower Defenses, or RPGs or even DOTA. Defense of the Ancients became a five versus five arena where both teams tried to destroy their opponents "base." You controlled unique heroes with special abilities and pushed three different lanes.

The game became so popular, someone decided to make a whole separate game from that style. Thus, League of Legends was born.

League of Legends is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Area) and is the exact same concept as the original DOTA back in Warcraft III, but clearly polished and developed. It is now one of the most popular esports and games on the planet.

Players can choose from over a 100 champions all with creative abilities and powers. Work with your team to coordinate around the map, take objectives and towers, and slowly push the enemy team back into their base. The first team to kill the enemy Nexus, wins the match!

Riot Games has done a great job of integrating new players and have multiple practice modes, and normal matches let you experience the game firsthand. Each week has a free rotation of champions you can try out until you earn enough in-game currency to buy your favorite champion so you can play them whenever you want.
