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