League of Legends is one of the most popular MOBA games and it can be quite frustrating starting out , so that’s why I’m here!There are five roles for five players per team in League of Legends. This is the current meta-game ( as you will see in almost every game).
* Note : In this guide, I will only go over basic mechanics. Advanced mechanics like jungling and game theory will be posted in future guides alongside videos as they are extremely hard to be explained in just words. Thank you for understanding!

Now what exactly is the objective of the game?
Well, both teams have enemy “nexuses” and your goal is to destroy them. The team that destroys the enemy’s nexus wins. There’s also a surrender option at the 20 minute mark. In order to surrender, you must have 4 out of 5 votes from teammates.
As for items, you need to be familiar with champions and know their skill. Items make you stronger and each item is unique in a way that it provides you with special abilities. For example, red potions can heal 150 hp over a period of time. This will aid you to victory. The best way to learn this is by looking at champion statistics and continue playing. There’s also guides for specific champions in other websites.
It is up to you to show sportsmanship after every game, but it is encouraged. Even if you lost badly, be sure to type GG WP ( good game,well played).
Team work and team communication
You can be the team leader and command your teammates to follow certain objectives like Baron Nashor ( spawns every 7 minutes in the top circle in the river. Remember, objectives win games.
Neutral monster camps spawn times :
- RED LIZARD, BLUE GOLEM — 5 minute respawn time, 1:55 First spawn (FS)
- [RIVER] Drake (dragon):–6 minute respawn time, FS 2:30
- [RIVER] Baron Nashor(worm): –7 minute respawn time, FS 15:00
- Wolves , Golems — 50 second respawn time, FS 1:55
- Wraiths –50 seconds respawn time, FS 1:55
Runes and Masteries
It is advised not to buy runes until level 20, however there is a future update that will eliminate this. Currently, you need to be around level 20-21 to buy Tier 3 runes which are the best ones. Tier 1 being the worst. Runes and Masteries allow you to be stronger, and deal more damage to your opponents or monsters/creeps.
Take this to your advantage. Once in the brush, no one can see you unless there is a sight ward**.
** Sight wards allow you to see a certain radius portion of the map. Green ones last 3 minutes and have 3 HP, they cannot be destroyed unless you have a red sweeper( trinket system). The trinkey system allows you to start with 3 items ( you choose one). Choice 1 : 1 minute ward. Choice 2: Sweeper to view wards in an area( implying there are wards/invisible traps like Teemo’s mushrooms) Choice 3: Lens to see an area just like the ward, but lasts around 5 seconds. This gives you at least 2-4x the vision you get from regular wards.
