League of Legends has proven to be one of the most popular and enduring video games in the world. It is the industry’s top MOBA, with players across every gaming region. With new champions and game features being added each year, it’s hard to see LoL stopping anytime soon.

League of Legends is the world’s biggest esport

For many fans of the game, League of Legends is defined first and foremost by its prominent esports scene. No other game has so big and far-reaching a cohesive web of esports competitions, nearly all of which is run in-house by LoL developer and publisher Riot Games.

Esports competitions in League of Legends are divided by a number of regional leagues in which teams of five players compete against each other for trophies, cash prizes, and the opportunity to play at prestigious international tournaments. Some of these leagues now have over a decade of history to their name, showing the enduring popularity of LoL and its competitive outlets.

The League Championship Series (LCS) may be the most prominent name attached to League of Legends esports. Based in Los Angeles, California, the LCS was created in 2013 as the competitive hub for League of Legends in North America. It has carried on since, and has prominently featured some of the biggest team names in all of esports, including Cloud9, Team Liquid, and Team SoloMid.

The competition expanded to Europe in the form of the European League Championship Series, which was renamed as the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) in 2019. Like the LCS, the LEC has established a long tradition of competitive play, in its case with such big brand names as G2 Esports and Fnatic.

The most successful League of Legends teams are traditionally found in Asia, split between two prominent competitions there: the LCK in Korea, and the LPL in China.

Korea’s LCK has played host to some of the biggest individual names in all of esports history. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok is considered by some to be the most famous and successful esports competitor across all games, and he has spent his entire career in the LCK while helping to accrue multiple domestic and international championships for his team, T1.

In the LPL, Chinese teams have established what is broadly considered to be the single most competitive league in all of LoL esports. That competitive environment has seen LPL teams rise up and repeatedly challenge the best LCK teams for international dominance, while LCS and LEC teams do their best to keep up.

Competitive play isn’t limited to these regions, however. League of Legends is played competitively across the world, from Brazil to Japan, from Australia to Vietnam. In each case, the top teams from regions big and small are given the opportunity to prove their mettle at grand international stages.

League of Legends has two major international tournaments each calendar year. The League of Legends World Championship is the biggest of those, crowning the overall champion for the game each year and featuring as much history and prestige as any esports event in the world. The Mid-Season Invitational is the second, occurring earlier in the year and giving fans an additional chance to see top players from around the globe clash beyond their regional boundaries.

👀 What is League of Legends?

League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), in which two teams of five players battle for control of a map with the ultimate goal of destroying the enemy team’s nexus, the prime objective in each team’s home base.

The game’s map features a number of objectives to be had by teams, most of which are optional, but each of which is very important in establishing dominance over the map and creating a pathway to the enemy team’s base. These include defensive turrets, neutral monsters, and other map features.

Through combat with other players, neutral creatures, and each team’s minions that steadily march from base towards the other, players accrue experience and gold. These two resources are used to increase the player’s range and effectiveness of abilities, and to purchase empowering items, respectively.

League of Legends features an immense roster of unique characters called champions. Each champion has its own set of abilities that set it apart from other champions, giving each champion its own playing style. This diverse range of champions and abilities is a large part of what has made LoL so popular over the years, as the clash of different styles creates interesting and engaging combat.

What’s more, new champions are added to the game each year, and older champions are sometimes updated with new and different abilities. Combined with the addition of new features to the game’s map, this all helps to keep the game fresh and interesting for its players.

Who made League of Legends?

League of Legends was made by developer and publisher Riot Games, and Riot also continues working on the game as a live service each year.

Riot Games was itself founded in September 2006. League of Legends was Riot’s first game release, and that release took place in October 2009, more than three years after Riot’s founding. Patience paid off, as League of Legends took the gaming world by storm and has remained one of the world’s biggest, most popular, and most lucrative games ever since its release.

For many years, League of Legends was Riot’s sole focus. The company did eventually begin work on other games, putting revenues from LoL’s success towards those new ventures. These have most prominently included first-person shooter Valorant and digital collectible card game Legends of Runeterra. Valorant in particular has become one of the world’s most popular video games, taking its place next to League of Legends in that regard.

Riot Games has not been without its controversies over the years, ranging from issues with the individuals running the company to questions over its ownership. The company is also frequently criticized by players for its monetization practices and its game balancing efforts.
