League of Legends Controversy from a Player’s Perspective

League of Legends Controversy  from a Player’s Perspective

Jack Hughes, Staff Writer

     League of Legends is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game that was released 12 years ago, and has developed a lot over the years. I find that every time someone brings up League of Legends to someone who doesn’t play, they say that they hate it or they look at you like you have 4 heads. League does not deserve the hate whatsoever. 

I have been playing this game since 2019 and it was difficult at first being that MOBA games are often a challenge to get used to, but once I got the hang of it I started to enjoy it thoroughly. This is a logic based game that is often compared to chess. It consists of over 100 characters to play as, all with different skills and special traits with niche purposes. Once you find the one that fits your personal gameplay preference, you can start to have fun and learn how to use said character optimally. This game can be played competitively in the ranked game-mode, but can also be played casually and with some completely unique mini game modes. 

The one complaint I have about this game is that the community does have flaws, as many others do. Although this is a negative factor, there are many encouraging and supportive players as well. If you don’t even want to deal with people in general, you can also turn off the chats and play the game on your own.

All in all, even if you aren’t interested in League of Legends, your opinion is completely valid; but I don’t think you should be belittling the player-base for simply enjoying themselves. Video games should be about fun, and you should not have to worry about being hated on for playing a game that you love.
