How to play LoL
League of Legends is normally played in a 5 vs 5 map called “Summoner’s Rift”. Each player controls a champion who spawns in “the fountain”, which is a specific region in the base where you can buy gear and consumables that will aid you in your final objective; to destroy the enemy’s Nexus.
This structure is not only protected by players but also turrets which take a lot of effort to destroy. The champions are distributed in 3 lanes and 2 jungles, according to the following 5v5 map:
- Top lane: 1 champion who is usually a fighter or a tank.
- Middle lane: 1 champion who is usually a mage or caster type which has a lot of mobility.
- Bottom Lane: 2 champions. An Attack Damage Carry (ADC) and a support.
- Jungle: One champion who can clear the jungle really quickly and has some sort of crowd control to assassinate the enemy champions.
