League of Legends (Video Game) - TV Tropes
Ahri · Miss Fortune · Soraka · Syndra · Ezreal · Lux · Jinx · Janna · Poppy · Lulu The tips of my own fingers start to glow and break apart. Like Lulu, she has a special connection to the stars, though she and her team do. League of Legends is a free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game and spiritual successor to the widely popular Warcraft III custom map, Defense of . But, I remember watching a Riot video my friend tagged me in on Facebook where it confirmed that Lux and Ezreal were and are a couple.
Like DotA, League of Legends gives you control of one Champion, who has unique attacks and abilities, and sends you out against enemy Mooks and Champions to earn experience points and gold.
Your goal is to destroy the enemy base the Nexus by first eliminating the turrets that defend it, which usually requires a heap-load of Cannon Fodder Mooks to tank the turret blasts while the Champions whittle it down.
There are also a number of secondary objectives scattered around the map which grant significant bonuses to whoever claims them.
League Of Legends Official
The Framing Device originally revolved around the titular "League of Legends", a magical battle arena used to settle disputes between the competing factions living in the magical fantasy world of Runeterra. The lore has developed in a massive way since thenemploying a Continuity Reboot that wrote out the League entirely in favour of focusing upon the living tales of individual characters and entire nations that populate Runeterra.
The ongoing lore is now primarily communicated through Universean extensive encyclopedia website; as well as written stories, artwork, comics, animations, and special character interactions. Unlike the Champions who start each match at Level 1, the Player Character Summoners are persistent and gain experience with every battle.
Summoners can also directly improve a Champion's stats during gameplay by equipping "Runes", and bring two Support Powers into battle. All-Starsoriginally a Warcraft 3 custom map, which itself was based on Aeon of Strife, a Starcraft custom map. LoL currently competes with several other games that originate from DotA, including its own direct sequel, Dota 2.
However, LoL has many distinct differences from DotA, most of which simplify the game to some extent. Riot Games pushed it heavily as a professional e-sport, and it has long since eclipsed the original DotA's popularity. The game has two playable game types, each between two opposing teams of up to five players: The standard mode of play as described above.
The two maps available for this mode are Summoner's Rift, a 5v5 three-lane map in the same style of DotA's map, and Twisted Treeline, a smaller two-lane map for 3v3 matches. This created a highly-aggressive game based more around direct combat than map control. It was later canonized into an official mode and given a unique map: Thirty seconds until tropes spawn!
On top of this, in NovemberRiot started releasing "temporary game modes" that are only available for a limited time. Riot has a "Rotating Game Mode" queue that opens at a somewhat sporadic schedule from Fridays to Mondays, with specific game modes being available for play on a rotational basis.
These game modes include: Known simply as Dominion in its original incarnation. A capture-and-hold game where players must fight over control of five "capture points" on the map.
The Nexus is not attacked directly, but damaged over time depending on how many points are controlled.
Champions start at Level 3 and gain gold and experience far more quickly than normal, leading to a more action-packed match. The dedicated map for this mode is called "The Crystal Scar". This was originally one of the three main game types alongside Classic and ARAM, but was discontinued after four years in February due to a lack of interest.
Ironicallyfan outcry about its removal eventually saw its inclusion in the Rotating Game Mode queue. Riot remastered the assets, did a few tweaks, and added it to the rotation. A mode that operates exactly like Classic, except each team is made up of five copies of the same champion. Only three champions were permanently vetoed: Karthus five of his ultimate ability hitting at once would be unbeatableSyndra so many orbsand Teemo so many mushrooms.
A 1v1 or 2v2 skirmish on a modified version of the Howling Abyss map. Oh, and whoever wins dances as Victory is declared and the whole bridge floods with happy Poros. A 6v6 war that completely upends the standard meta of the game. As of autumnhas been played on both Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline. Ultra Rapid Fire, or U. Announced on April Fools' Day as "the future of LoL", this mode grants a global buff to all players that allows them to spam abilities to a ridiculously overpowered degree.
This game mode made a return in One for All Mirror Mode: A variation of "One for All" that pits ten of the same champion against each other on the Howling Abyss map. Doom Bots of Doom: AI mode which pits regular players against Purposely Overpowered bots. These "Doom Bots" not only have incredibly unfair versions of their regular abilities, but gain randomized bonus abilities taken from other Champions or made exclusively for this mode. A later remake turns this into a sort of survival mode, with Little Devil Teemo as the final boss.
A modified version of the Dominion map, where two teams of five must move through an even thicker fog of war to capture relics. At the center of the map is the boss, a stationary Xerath with a high level of health; whoever kills him Ascends themselves, becoming highly buffed until the enemy team manages to kill them. Points are awarded for champion kills and relics captured; first team to wins.
Legend of the Poro King: A Snowdown-exclusive 5v5 skirmish on the Howling Abyss where the usual Summoner spells are replaced by two poro-specific abilities: The Poro King is a giant poro who proceeds slowly down the map, healing your team and doing damage to your enemies tanking turret blasts and thrown enemy poros too until he is dispelled.
A variation on Summoner's Rift Draft Mode, where instead of picking your own champion's, you pick the enemy team's. Cue a complete reversal of the usual tactics, as players try to ban out the perceived worst champions and give the enemy team the most awkward champions and comps they can come up with. Originally added as a part of the Bilgewater: In this game mode, many different items from the "black market" are also available for sale, some with very dramatic effects.
Additionally, you can spend Krakens, a currency unique to the game mode, on Brawlers, unique mercenary creatures that follow minions down a lane. Subsequent Krakens spent can upgrade your Brawlers to give them unique effects.
After it ended, one of the unique items, the Dead Man's Plate, was added to regular gameplay to memorialize the event. It has yet to pass through the Rotating Game Queue, but it's on it's way.
A time-attack competition where the Attacking team attempts to destroy the Nexus of the Defending team as quickly as possible. The two teams then switch sides, and whoever gets the best time wins.
Both teams can buy special Siege Equipment to help their side, such as tower-destroying cannon placements for the Attackers and tower-buffing super-lasers for the Defenders. Hunt of the Blood Moon: A deathmatch gamemode where only very aggressive and squishy champions, mostly Assassins, are playable. The first team to reach points wins, and points are gained by killing enemy champions, hunting enemy spirits in their jungle, or killing the Demon Heralds that spawn in the Baron and Dragon pits.
If one champion gets three kills in a row withouot dying or returning to base, they gain Demon Brand, which turns them invisible and causes their next attack to deal true damage. It's a huge deathmatch where everyone is a glass cannon. The Characters pages list every commercially-released champion, detailing tropes related to their backstory, appearance, and gameplay mechanics, and a few other characters to boot.

Some information on these pages may be out of date- please correct if needed. The entirety of the pre-retcon lore, aside from a few archetypal starting points for some champions, and even that's not a guarantee. In an extensive post, Riot said the old lore was extremely limiting and prevented them from truly exploring unique and interesting avenues for their characters.
They weren't wrong, as the old lore was filled with Excuse Plotsexcessive Fanserviceand other general nonsense. So, they started over. The lore since then has taken many by surprise. There are champions with names like "Annie", "Vladimir", and "Diana", as well as ones with more exotic names like "Rek'Sai", "Teemo", and "Thresh". It's so common for players to joke about other's players slow-loading computers as this it's practically tradition. The most common form is recommending that players who take 5 minutes or more to load should stop playing on for example a smartphone, toaster, potato, Lite Brite, Etch-a-Sketch The end result of any game.
Most mages and some physical damage champions focus on burst damage; that is, blowing up someone before they can retaliate. The problem is getting there.
One of Master Yi's signature abilities is called Alpha Strike, but it's not an example, as it's a multi-targeted Flash Step attack. Quite a number of the alternate skins for champions play with this, with in-game skin descriptions and other promotional materials tying them together in similar thematic universes. More information can be found on the Groups and Skin Themes pagebut some notable ones: The champions live as students, teachers, and professors in high-school.
Taken further with the Riot-endorsed series of Academy Adventures fan comics, which shows exactly what happens when you have a school filled with super powerful beings who have much of their original personalities. The champions are video game characters Battlecast or "The Evolution": Viktor has realized his Glorious Evolution. In turn, he's created a number of machine monstrosities, based on several void champions, Xerath, and Skarner. The champions are part of a Cyber Punk future, and turned into cyborgs meant for battle, and forced to often undergo torturous memory wipes to suppress their humanity and memories of their former lives.
Master Yi in particular has suffered from this, but has flashes of his original memories. However, a resistance faction led by Ashe have broken away to avoid having their memories of their human selves taken away, and fight to free other PROJECT members from being used as mere weapons. Future setting where champions have access to time travel and other alternate universes. Ezereal has become a "time explorer", but is actually considered a criminal because of his habit of taking artifacts from their correct timelines, causing the butterfly effect.
He is now chased after by this universe's Caitlyn as she tries to stop him and others who negatively effect the various time streams from their rightful course. Champions living in a modern day world, school students by day, and Magical Girl Warriors by night.
Defictionalized with Riot's in-house band Pentakill releasing an actual album, with songs named after various items, gameplay features, and lore pieces. Seemingly invoked by The Void and the Shadow Isles but subverted when you read up on their characters and lore. It's certainly the case for a majority of champions in those factions, but not all of them. This allowed Germany the military advantage of controlling and expanding the railways there.
