Lol (not laughter) is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game developed and published by Riot Games. The game goals is to for a team of 5 more less to destroy the each other Nexus and defenses which protect it like Tower Defense. This game was inspired by Warcraft and it’s a very popular MOBA in the gaming world. I a lot of people stream this game on Twitch and YouTube, over 7.5 million people played and download League of Legends and its rank first in the most watched game. The development in this game, when Riot Games developers Brandon “Ryze” Beck and Marc “Tryndamere” Merrill partnered with Steve “Guinsoo” Feak (who designed Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne) and Steve “Pendragon” Mescon (Defense of the Ancients) who help designed the game. Gusinsoo was involved with DOT Allstars mod and put his own spin on it with expanding a number of heroes, gameplay and items, then passed the mod to IceFrog after accepting a job at Riot Games. Defense of the Ancients was another inspiration for League of Legends and the game was praised by the DOTA community members of being fun and innovative with enhanced features. Riot games opens its doors in September 2006 and over 1,000 staff are developing League of Legends.

The basics of the game are you pick game mode such as Coop, Normal, Ranked, Tutorial (if you don’t know how to play) and Custom Games. Select a map (Summoner’s Rift, Twisted Treeline, Howling Abyss and Crystal Scar) to play on. Choose your champions (136) you can buy with if you like. Buy items during the game and fight with your minions to take out the enemy’s base and defense such as turrets and Nexus. Once you do that you win the game and level up your champion, also you get items and other goodies (such as skins, summoner icon and runes). There are sub objectives in this game which you can level up by different monsters in the map to get rewards but optional. There are different types of Marksman, Mage, Tank, Fighter, Slayer and Controller with unique abilities to help and win the battle. Also if you level up in-game that champions will increase their ability and make it more power. In-game items can increase your champion attributes such as offence, defense and magic also there is support items as well. I am liking the designs of the champions and setting such folklore, steampunk, fantasy and Lovecraftian horror. Note there are limited time game modes if you like to try them but there are only for two weeks. I played of MOBA such as Heroes of the Storm, Smite and Paragon, these are completion with each other I might play DOTA one day. If you want a free-to-play MOBA and we why gamers love it go play it and make sure to support the series. Get gift card for $10$25,  $50 and $100 Riot points on Amazon.
