Apart from DOTA 2, another MOBA is preparing for an epic tournament, and that is Riot’s League of Legends.
League of Legends or LoL is an MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) that was created by Riot. It was launched on October 27th, 2009 and it was well received by players and critics. Reviews were mostly positive, aside from the usual bugs that you get from an open beta.
League of Legends was Riot’s answer to DOTA (MOBA made by modding a Warcraft 3 map). To no one’s surprise, it got famous pretty quickly.
One of the most attractive and most important factors that propelled the game on almost every PC is that it is free to play. However, money could still be used to buy champions (instead of grinding them) and skins.
One difference between League of Legends and other similar games is that in LoL you can add masteries and runes to your champion. Thus, they introduced a role-playing element to the match. Also, the player can use two spells that can help their hero in defeating their foe.
League of Legends quickly became one of the most famous online games in the last decade and turned into e-sport material.
World Championship 2017

Here is what we know until now:
- League of Legends World Championship 2017 will host a twenty-four team tournament, with teams coming from all over the world.
- These teams are from all thirteen professional leagues, and the event will be held in China.
- The twenty-four teams will participate in multiple stages including a Play-in Stage before attending the Group Stage.
- Some regions can earn the second seed for the World Championship 2017 based on their results in the MSI 2017.
