League of Legends was born in the fall of 2009 thanks to the efforts of developers from the American company Riot Games. The game was distributed according to the “free-to-play” model and in many ways resembled its main competitor in the person of DotA, in the image and likeness of which it was created.

Currently, the game has registered more than seventy-five million users, of which nearly half are regularly online.
