The principle of the game
In League of Legends, two teams, each made up of five players, compete against each other. Each player controls a character, a so-called champion, from a bird’s eye view of the playing field (the “Summoners Rift”). Each player selects this champion, who has individual abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, before the game. There are over 160 samples in total. Over the course of a game that lasts approximately 20 to 50 minutes, champions gain more and more strength and equipment by killing minions, monsters, enemy champions, and destroying enemy towers. The aim of the game is to destroy the opponent’s base, the so-called “Nexus”, before the opponent destroys his own Nexus.
