With over 27 million active players and counting, League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world (if not the most popular). But for those who have never experience a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, they can be a bit daunting because many players already in the community expect you to know how to play the game (and play it well!). So if you’re looking for a quick way to learn the basics of the game and finally make it through a match without someone calling you an uber-noob, then look no further. Here are 15 League of Legends tips for beginners that can help you hit the ground running.
15. Try Out Different Characters
If you’re just getting into League of Legends, don’t worry too much about trying to find the perfect character or position you’re best suited for. Instead, just focus on testing out a whole bunch of different characters. Actually, the more champions you try, the better sense you’ll get of what role suits your playstyle; be it ranged attack damage, melee fighting, or tanky support. Most game options don’t even become available until you get your profile to level 5, so having a young profile makes it a good time to play as many champions as you can.
