League of Legends

What is League of Legends?

League of Legends (LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows. Players are formed into 2 even teams of Champions, 3v3 or 5v5. League of Legends is a session-based game. Matchmaking occurs based on the average Elo ratings of each individual players, with slight proprietary adjustments. The game can currently be played in five different modes: Tutorial, Custom, Co-Op vs. AI, Normal and Ranked. Custom mode allows players to manually create custom game sessions that other players can find on a game list and join. Co-op vs. AI is a mode where players are matched either alone or as part of a group against a team of bots.


The most common release is 3.0.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named lol.launcher.exe. The setup package generally installs about 103 files and is usually about 3.53 MB (3,702,790 bytes).
