The most commonly played mode is the 5 vs 5 Summoners Rift in which also the matches of the LoL Championship Series (LCS) and most other tournaments are played.

How Summoner’s Rift is played

Summoner's Rift 2016 - the map of League of LegendsOnce each player has chosen his champion, the goal of this map is quite simple. All you need to do is to get into the enemy base and destroy their Nexus before they destroy yours.

To achieve this you will have to kill Minions or enemy champions, which in return will grant you gold and experience. With the gold you earned you can buy a large variety of different items that allow you to customize the character you have chosen. The experience you earned will allow you to level up your character to a maximum of level 18, and each level you gain increases your attributes like health, attack power and mana, which makes it so important to level up fast. In addition to the increase in your attributes you can learn or enhance one of the four different unique skills of your character each level.

A match in the Summoners Rift of League of Legends mostly lasts for 30 to 45 minutes and is finished as soon as the nexus of one of the teams is destroyed or one team surrenders.

There are all kinds of League of Legends tournaments throughout the year, ranging from small regional tournaments with small price money up to Riot Games official League of Legends tournament series LCS. We have gathered some information about the biggest LoL tournaments in the following articles:
