The League Of Legends Tournaments
With over a hundred million active players monthly, League of Legends (Lol) needs no introduction in the eSports world. League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game that features two teams of five characters each. The aim of each team is to destroy the other’s “Nexus,” using strategies and a set of special skills given to the characters.
This battle primarily takes place in the game mode known as Summoner’s Rift. League of Legends tournaments graced the esports scene in 2011, two years after its release by Riot Games.
