League of Legends 

League of Legends is a co-operative team game where five players work together to capture objectives and outsmart an opposing team trying to do the same.

Success in League of Legends requires teamwork, strategy, communication, creativity and especially their practice and eventual mastery of each champion. 

Like traditional sports League of Legends has roles players must undertake to successfully navigate the game. There are 5 Roles to select from and up to 150 Champions to select making every game unique in its own right.
