League of Legends, also known as LOL, is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games. League of Legends was heavily inspired from Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne mod, Defense of the Ancients, as a few developers that worked on LoL were originally handling the Warcraft III mod, DotA.

In League of Legends, players control a “champion” with unique abilities and battle against a team of other players. The goal is to destroy the opposing team’s “Nexus” before they destroy yours. However, LoL has other game-modes as well. The game consists of three game modes currently: Summoner’s Rift, Twisted Treeline, and Howling Abyss. There was another game-mode called Crystal Scar, which has been removed now. Here’s another LoL wallpaper HD image.
