League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre video game . Players are formed into two even teams of three or five players on each team. Each team starts at opposing sides of a map, near what is called a "Nexus". To win a match, a team must destroy the opposing team's Nexus. To do so, each team must work through a series of towers called "turrets". Turrets are often placed along a path to each base often referred to as a "lane". Along the way, each player gains levels by killing the opposing team's "minions" (small NPCs that constantly spawn and attack the other team), and buy "items" to advance their character.
