League of Legends is an online battle arena game that has gained immense popularity in recent years.  Since being released in 2009, the game has been played by over 30 million people.

In a game of League of Legends, there are two teams, and both contain five players.  Each player on either team controls a champion. There are currently 110 different champions in League of Legends, and each has his or her own unique abilities and powers.

The goal for each team is to destroy the enemy team’s nexus, which is a structure located in each team’s base (also known as the Spawning Pool).

Players can choose from one of three lanes (known as the top lane, middle lane, and the bottom lane) to try to reach the enemy’s spawning pool, while trying to work through defensive towers called turrets along the way.

In the middle of the map, there is a place called the jungle. In the jungle, players can kill neutral monsters to earn gold and sometimes temporary advantages for their team. There are also places where champions are invisible, which is a good way to set up ambushes.

During the course of a game in League of Legends, players earn gold by killing enemies, destroying turrets, or killing enemy minions. This gold can be used in-game to buy upgrades for champions, making them stronger as the game goes along.

With the large amount of players that log on every day, League of Legends boasts an average of 12 million hours of games each week, and 1 billion hours played per month, making it the most played video game in the world.

Last October, the second annual World Championship was played, which drew teams of League of Legends players from across the world. The events were watched by millions worldwide, with a total of one million dollars in prize money given to the winners.

League of Legends has quickly become one of the most popular free games in the world, with millions playing every day.
