The game contains a matching system, in which you are matched with other players to form a group. You each select a character and are placed against another group to invade the opponents’ base while defending your own.
The design of the game is pretty straight forward but easily allows for complex strategy and tactics to complete objectives. There are many different characters, or Champions to choose from in a variety of classes, ranged DPS, melee, support, tank and mage.
There are a total of two main game modes, Classic & Dominion. In Classic mode you aim to destroy the opponents’ nexus while guarding your own. Dominion entails that you seize and hold more of the capture points on the map than your opponents in order to win over the other team. Each mode has different team requirements and maps, or “Fiends of Justice. Goals and conditions for winning vary as well as containing different items and available summoner spells.
Classic fields are mostly 5vs5 and Dominion are 3vs3. These are not short games either, games on one fiend can range from 15 minutes to almost an hour depending on the complexity of the field, spells and team members allotted.
