Anyway... onto the game. League of Legends (LoL) is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game. The game has a tutorial that I highly recommend new players utilize. It definitely helps to walk you through the basics. Even after you complete the tutorial, there's still much to learn. It's an easy game to play, but a difficult game to master. Their website has an official New User Guide as well as a New Player Forum.
After completing the tutorial you can choose between PvP, PvBots, or Custom Game. I highly recommend PvBots and Custom Game for those who are a little more casual and/or new to the game/genre. But if you wait too long to jump into PvP (like I did) you'll end up gimping yourself because humans play very different than bots. Players are formed into 2 even teams of Champions, 3v3 or 5v5. As of April 30, 2013, there are 113 different champions from which to choose. Each player begins at opposing sides of a map in an area called the Spawning Pool, near what is called a Nexus. A match is won when either team's nexus is destroyed. To destroy a Nexus, each team must work through a series of Turrets placed along a path to each base referred to as a Lane. Along the way, each player gains levels from killing the opposing team's champions and Minions (NPCs that constantly spawn and attack the other team) and defeating neutral monsters. Completing objectives rewards players with gold which is used to purchase items. Forever Gaming LoL Players:
