Who would never know the most famous multiplayer online battle arena or also known as MOBA game? Of course, when you hear the word MOBA, what comes first to your mind is the game League of Legends. League of Legends, which is abbreviated as LoL was published and developed by Riot Games specially made both for Microsoft Windows and even MacOS. Hence, it can be played through your desktop or personal computers. The game was actually anchored with the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne mod, Defense of the Ancients, or what is prominent for the term DOTA.
If you are wondering about the players of the said game, what could be taught to you is that the classes or classifications of the players, or specifically the heroes of the game, are in accordance with those which are acquired in fantasies. Thus, there is the existence of magic, powers and the like among the classes.
To give you an insight about classes, there are actually groups of champions which are equipped with definite and actual effects within every mode of the game. It provides you with the graphics that would really move you. Likewise, these major classes have their corresponding secondary classes. Moreover, classes include but not limited to the player's: reaction when being hit by an enemy; behavior as he or she performs the equipped abilities, spells and the like; and responses to every element encountered in the battle arena.
Now for you to know, there are actually six official riot classifications. These are the Marksman, Mage, Assassin, Tank, Fighter, and Support. To be more knowledgeable regarding the topic, here are short yet concise descriptions of these six.
Marksmen are also called as "AD Carries." If you are to choose a class which is a range champion or that which can deal with physical damage even when not going near to the opponent, you've got to be the team's marksman. Likewise, marksmen are usually good at dealing sustained damages during the late game than in the early game, especially if it has already been equipped with the necessary items. Marksmen's forte is actually destroying the enemy turrets. However, they have a weak defense. In the game, some of the marksmen are Miss Fortune, Varus, Ashe, and Caitlyn.
Mages can sometimes also be called as "AP Carries." If you are to choose a class that deals with a powerful magic damage skill and has also its support skills, you've got to be the team's mage. However, mages have a weak defense and low mobility which could be an easy target your opponents. If you are the mage, you can have your own tactics such as attacking enemies from afar. Mage's special skills can really be damaging that is why during clashes, mages are very much important. Some famous mages are Lux, Swain, Karthus, and Lissandra.
Assassins are best when it comes to killing a foe the fastest way possible. If you are looking for a class that is of excellent mobility, you've got to go with being the assassin. However, it has a weak defense especially once one got caught, though it still opts to go after an opponent's AD/AP Carry and those classes with a weaker defense as well. The most common assassins are Fizz, Zed, Katarina, and Diana.
Tanks are literally just the same with its lexical definition. This type of class is very much hard to get killed. They are usually the team's shield as they absorb all the damages supposedly aimed for its team members. Although its defense is best, it has a less damage dealt with. However, it can be a great source of crowd control as it distracts enemies and keeps the enemies attack tanks first instead of its co-champions. The most common examples of tanks are Sejuani, Zac, Malphite, and Rammus.
Fighters are usually best at fighting near the foes. This type of class blends the attributes of a damage dealer and that of the tank, and sums up a moderate survivability with damage dealt. To be able to win against its foe, it must stay close enough to its target.
The most famous fighters are Wukong, Jax, Rek’Sai, and Xin Zhao.
Supports, as the term suggests, are simply the support system of the team. This type of class is actually intended to aid the rest of the team by offering them the buffs they need, healing them with their ability and other forms of support. The most famous supports are Nami, Taric, Alistar, and Soraka.
