1. How to play
LoR is Riot’s upcoming game, inspired by classic card games like Magic The Gathering and Hearthstone, with the champions and skins in League of Legends becoming the cards in a deck.
However, LoR is not simply a reproduction from strategy card games. Riot plans to give it a unique feel through combat mechanics.
Players will have to build their decks by earning cards through the in-game process or using money to buy the cards they need. Each card has its own unique, unique abilities, and has the potential to become strong if the player is willing to take risks. In LoR, you will have to think quickly and carefully before moving if you want to win.
The cards are grouped into six regions in the world of Runeterra: Shadow Isles, Ionia, Piltower & Zaun, Demacia, Noxus, and the Freljord. Each region offers a different kind of strategy and it’s up to the player to choose how they want to combine them. A deck can have up to 40 cards, but you can only use cards from two areas at a time.
You are free to choose your deck of cards and tactics. Once you’ve set up your deck, it’s time to play it. Each field has two sides, one on the offensive side and one on the defensive side indicated by the symbol of the sword or the shield. One player chooses the card to take down the opponent while the other tries to survive.
The outcome depends on a number of decisions. It is not only the strength of the cards in the deck, but also depends on how the cards are used to defeat an opponent or take risks to “comeback” in the final stage. For every move you make, your opponent also has a turn.
