Not only is it played by hundreds of thousands of gamers from different countries, even the Continental League is held to identify the best players.
What is League of Legends in simple terms?
It is a 5v5 team competitive game, the world’s most popular PC game, with over 100 million players every month. Players choose champions, are divided into roles (mage, tank, killer, etc.) and attack the opponents’ base, which is located on the opposite side of the playing field. The goal of the team is to get to the Nexus, the enemy’s key facility, and destroy it.
How is it different from Dota 2?
Although both games represent the same MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre, League of Legends has many unique features. For example, deep work on champions and the world: the game harmoniously combines the lords of death, cyberpunk ninjas and space dragons. And at the same time, a whole universe is built around them: each character, faction or city has a dramatic backstory, there are allies and opponents, a goal. There are already 145 champions in total! In the League of Legends universe, comics are produced in partnership with Marvel, music videos from virtual groups that hit the charts (for example, K / DA with the POP / STARS single), short films and much more.
Why has LoL become so popular?
LoL differs from Dota 2 in a more “cartoonish” and “light” visual style. In my opinion, LoL is a more independent product than Dota 2.
Bright characters, less gloomy atmosphere.Those to whom Dota 2 seemed oppressive and dark, gladly went to play LoL. Very cool lore feed! Lore is the history of a fictional world, its laws, characters, geography – everything that it consists of. Riot Games constantly talks about the stories of the characters and the world in general, and does it very cool. The game even has its own music band, which consists of the game’s characters, they even have official music videos.
Types of bets on League of Legends
For League of Legends competitions, bookmakers offer fairly wide lines of outcomes. The main types of eSports strategy bets include:
- First death in the game. Capper guesses which team will have the first loss. In general, “first blood” creates a significant reserve in terms of the entire outcome of the confrontation, since one of the teams gets a noticeable advantage.
- First destruction. Teams not only develop, but also strive to inflict maximum damage on the opponent, and the bettor can bet on which team will be the first to destroy the opponent’s building.
- Total kills. A large number of characters take part in the battles, and the capper can predict how many heroes will be killed by the end of the match.
- Total collected gold. Collecting gold is among the key tasks for gamers – the more the team receives, the faster it develops. Bettors predict how much gold will be collected by the end of the battle.
In addition to non-standard outcomes, there are also more usual bets – on the victory of one of the teams or the position that the gaming team will take at the end of the tournament.
Features of betting on LoL
Professional cappers study the features of the esports discipline in order to succeed in betting. Emphasis is placed on the following aspects:
The player’s ability to play in a team. Even the most talented and experienced gamers may not play with teammates, and the benefits of individual skill will be significantly reduced.
Take a break at the beginning. So that the balance of power does not seem like a “Chinese letter”, study a couple of matches first to assess the shape of the opponents, their tactics and strengths.
Play on your own. Cappers should play a couple of games themselves so that the number of questions about the strategy is kept to a minimum. Additionally, you can fill in the “knowledge gaps” in specialized forums.
