League of Legends, or LoL, is the most popular video game in the world, with millions of players online at any given time. It's a free-to-play game in which players control one "champion" on a team and face off against another team of champions, usually trying to destroy the other team's defenses and, ultimately, their "nexus".

Champions earn gold and experience throughout each match, hoping to eventually earn levels of wealth that match the money Riot Games has made from producing the game and hosting tournaments.
