League of Legends is a game where there are two teams, each having five members, fighting against each other to destroy the enemy team's Nexus. There are five different paths a person can take to get stronger and level up to try and gain an advantage over the other team. The paths are top path, middle path, bottom path, support, and jungle. Middle path you will mostly be by yourself with some help from your teammates every now and then. Top path you will be together with the jungle path but they will mostly focus on attacking the monsters in the jungle to level up. The bottom path is backed up by the support path and is mainly a huge damage dealer with the support being either their tank, healer, or both.
