League of Legends (abbreviated LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) esports video game developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows and macOS. Originally inspired by Defense of the Ancients, the game follows a freemium model and is commonly described as the world’s most iconic esport. The game was released on October 27, 2009, but is regularly updated in the form of patches.
In League of Legends, players play on a team and assume the role of a champion, characters with unique abilities, generally varying around a type of class, and battle against a team of player- or computer-controlled champions. In the main game mode on Summoner’s Rift, the goal is to destroy the opposing team’s Nexus, a structure that lies at the heart of their base and is protected by defensive structures.
League of Legends was well received upon its release and has earned praise for its diverse artistic and musical aspects, particularly its character design and production value. By July 2012, it was the most played PC game in North America and Europe in terms of the number of hours played. The game has a large following on streaming platforms like YouTube and Twitch. In September 2019, Riot Games said it boasted nearly 8 million peak concurrent users each day.
