League Of Legends Worlds 2023 Play-Ins Standings, Points Table, Results Till 13th October 2023
The largest esport in the world, League of Legends, is contested internationally through a number of regional competitions that lead up to the League of Legends World Championship each year. Over 100 million unique people watched the 2019 competition, with 44 million watching concurrently during the finals. Both domestic and international events have been aired on cable television’s sports channel ESPN as well as livestreaming services like Twitch, YouTube, and Bilibili.
A character known as the “champion” in League of Legends is controlled by the player from an isometric perspective and equipped with a variety of special powers. There will be more than 160 champions to choose from in 2023. Champions level up throughout a match by gaining experience points (XP) from defeating opponents. Champion strength-boosting items are purchased with gold, which players gain both actively by killing the enemy team’s defensive buildings and minions as well as passively over time. When a player’s champion is within their team’s base, they may purchase things through a shop menu in the primary game mode, Summoner’s Rift. Levels and goods do not carry over from one match to the next; each match is distinct.
Summoner’s Rift is League of Legends’ main game mode and the most prevalent in professional-level competition. A ranked competitive ladder exists in the mode; a matchmaking algorithm evaluates a player’s skill level and creates a starting rank from which they can rise. There are nine tiers, with Iron, Bronze, and Silver being the least proficient and Master, Grandmaster, and Challenger being the most skilled.
Riot Games redesigned the game’s fictional setting in September 2014, eliminating summoners from the game’s narrative to avoid “creative stagnation”. According to Luke Plunkett of Kotaku, while the change might annoy long-term fans, it was essential as the game’s player base expanded in size. Riot recruited Warhammer writer Graham McNeill shortly after the relaunch. Riot’s storytellers and artists generate flavour text, which adds “richness” to the game, but very little of it is visible during normal gameplay. That work, instead, serves as a basis for the franchise’s extension into other media, such as comic books and spin-off video games. The Fields of Justice have been replaced with a new fictitious location, Runeterra. The setting incorporates aspects from several genres, ranging from Lovecraftian horror to typical sword and sorcery fantasy.
