League of Legends
The game title 'League of Legends' has been played at IeSF's World Championships in 2013 (Baku), 2015 (Seoul), and 2016 (Jakarta).
The game is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game in which two teams of five fight for victory against one another. The teams each select five champions from a pool of such. Each champion has his/her own unique traits and abilities which adds a greater dimension to the game. A good draft can enable success, but a bad initial choice, can be devastating.
Its tactics and strategy inherent in the game lends itself well to competitive play and has amassed a huge following right across the world. In an interview with 'Forbes', Polygon’s Phil Kollar, Riot executives quietly confirmed that the game has 100 million monthly players.
