League of Legends is a game inspired by DotA (Defense of the Ancients) a very successful custom game in Warcraft III. League of Legends is developed by Riot Games with the help of the original creator of DotA and DotA Allstars Steve "Guinsoo" Feak and Steve "Pendragon" Mescon. This game was developed to remove the limitations of Warcraft III. There are many champions to choose from 5 different classes: Assassin, Fighter, Tank, Mage or Support.

New features that you won't find in DotA are:

Automated matchmaking, to make finding a good game easy
The ability to reconnect to games if you have disconnected
Completely new and original playable champions
Client-server network model with no host advantage
Advanced stat tracking
Built-in surrender functionality
In-game interface and controls designed for this style of play
Account-level progression, adding out-of-game strategic depth and customization, known as the summoner system
Regular updates with many more features to come!
An improved mini-map that shows your champion's pathing
Multiple maps, (Summoner's Rift, Summoner's Rift: Winter, Twisted Treeline, The Proving Grounds)
Features that make teaching the game to your friends easier, (game tutorial, bots, suggested items)
