About League of Legends

There are other game modes in League of Legends with varying rules, objectives, and maps. Each match is different with all champions beginning off at a weak point and gradually increasing in strength through accumulation of experiences and items throughout the game. 

Champions blend a number of fantasy tropes and span various roles, such as steampunk, sword and sorcery, and Lovecraftian horror. Also, players start with a small amount of gold and earn more as the game progresses. 

Some of the ways to gain gold is through defeating minions and characters, also called non-player characters. Another way is helping to defeat enemy players, destroying enemy structures, and through unique item interactions. This gold will be used to buy in-game items, such as skins
