League of Legends Esports — Worthy Challenger to the Best MOBA

League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the MOBA genre. It appeared back in 2009, and since then has been actively developing and updating. Gamers will never get bored, because game content is constantly being added, the balance of characters is changing so that the gameplay does not stagnate.

The meaning of the LoL game is very simple. There are two teams of five. Each player chooses one of the characters he wants to play as. The choice of the hero depends on the role of the gamer: support, forester, or a player in one of the lines. For each position, there are a number of the most suitable characters to take. Then the match begins. The task of each team is to destroy the opponent’s main building (nexus). It will not be difficult for a beginner to understand the gameplay of League of Legends.

Due to the fact that Riot Games, the development company, updates the game in every possible way, it is incredibly popular. The monthly number of active players exceeds 100 million — these are phenomenal numbers!

League of Legends fans not only play regular matches, but also follow the game outside of the client app. Websites that contain current LoL news are very popular. On the live streaming service Twitch, this game takes one of the leading places. When LoL esports wakes up and the top tournaments start, the Riot Games brainchild category is in a confident first place in terms of the number of viewers.

History of League of Legend as an Esports Discipline

The game was released at a time when the esports industry was booming. Riot Games understood that their project could become a successful discipline, so they began to promote LoL eSports in every possible way. It so happened that around the same time, Dota 2 appeared — the main competitor of the League of Legends. Competing with each other, these games improved, which only played into the hands of the fans of both projects.

In 2011, they held their debut world-class tournament in this game, the Riot Season 1 Championship. True, its scale was not the most powerful by today’s standards. The tournament was held as part of the DreamHack exhibition. The prize pool was only $98,500 — modern esports LoL pleases players with much larger amounts. Just a couple of months later, a major Dota 2 tournament took place, where 1.6 million dollars were played.

Riot Games had to urgently promote their game and invest big money to win the competition. The following year, $2 million was awarded at the World Championship. At the same time, other major tournaments began to be held, which began to delight fans of League of Legends esports more often.

Big money helped the esports scene develop — professional League of Legends teams, competitions, leagues, cups began to appear. LoL was gradually regaining its positions, it began to outstrip the same Dota. Other MOBA games are far behind.

Modern LoL esports standings have great prize money for players. The game also boasts high-quality broadcasts and analytics for fans. Professional matches are played on a regular basis. Almost every day, a fan can visit Twitch and watch a high-quality game from the best gamers on the planet. The World Championship is still the main League of Legends esport event. It is held once a year, traditionally in the fall. It is preceded by hot LoL tournaments where teams compete for precious prizes. The fan wins from this — he always has something to see!
