League of Legends – Summoners Champion MOBA Video Game Review
League of Legends summary
League of Legends is a MOBA developed by Riot Games. This game is the most popular multiplayer online battle arena next to Valve’s DOTA. The inspiration for League of Legends (LoL) is classic Warcraft which is top-down perspective. Smite is third-person perspective with similar gameplay mechanics. The game have over 100 characters (maybe more) with different classes. Player’s choose fighter, mage, marksman and tank champion types. Marksman champions are Ashe, Miss Fortune and Varus which this character have long range weapons. Mage champions are Lux, Swain and Karthus which have magic abilities and less defense. Tank are very powerful and the champions are Malphite, Sejuani and Rammus. Fighter have greater offense and great for close range. The main champions are Wukong, Jax and Xin Zhao.
There is two more champions’ types Assassin and Support. Assassin are fast and main characters is Diana, Fizz and Katarina. Support is healing and powering up your teammates. The champions are Alistar, Nami and Soraka. Main goal of the game is destroy the opposite team’s crystal. First, they must destroy turrets and inhibitors with their minions. Players can choose their champions and loadouts if their choice. In game, you champion can level up and upgrade your abilities. Each champion have four skillsets. Players can level up fighting field monsters and hide from enemies. You can chat with your team and issues commands. While at your home base, players can buy items and consumables. There are items such as armor, mobility, damage and many more.
The high the price for the item, more powerful you become. You will gain coins while playing. If you low on health, players can recall to the base. Last time I play this game, there were 5 game modes. When I got back on it in 2019. There were 3 game modes such as Summoner’s Rift, Twisted Treeline and ARAM. Summoner’s Rift is a normal 5 vs 5 game. Twisted Treeline is 3 vs 3 with the same format. ARAM is similar to Summoner’s Rift but no items and random-picks. After winning or losing a game, players can honor their teammates. You can add them as a friend for party game. Player can level up their champion mastery but have to own them. You can earn Blue essence during gameplay but have to buy Riot Points. That’s how some in-game currency work in video games. There is some ranked matches, if the player chooses.
If you don’t know how to play. There is a training mode and Co-op vs AI. That’s if you unable to look for a match. There was some content implemented in League of Legends. Players who stream League on Twitch connect with Riot Games. All you have to do is connect your Twitch account to Riot Games. It will show stats and your overall progress. Players can shop for champions, skins, icons and many more. League of Legends have esports and was heavenly advertised on YouTube. Note: If you want to change your name. Player must pay for it (I don’t know it stills applies). Make sure to look out for special events and other seasons for League.
League of Legends is a average game and wanted to try out. I have played it in the past but loss interest. Giving this game a second chance open my eyes. It still plays the same but a different change. I remember matchmaking was quick but it’s very slow. League is alittle similar to Heroes of the Storm and DOTA. I am not a huge fan of MOBA games but had fun. There is unique character designs and playstyle that set it apart. Hoping to stream the game more and get people to join me. After 3 years of hiatus on LOL, the game haven’t aged. If you want to try out League of Legends. It’s available to download on Riot Games website.
