Skill and creativity conquer all in Legends of Runeterra, a strategy card game featuring iconic champions and allies from the League of Legends universe.

In this strategy card game, skill defines your success—not luck. Mix and match iconic champions, allies, and regions of Runeterra to unlock unique card synergies and outplay your opponent.

Dynamic, alternating gameplay means you can always react and counter, but so can your opponent. Choose from dozens of champion cards to include in your deck, each with a different mechanic inspired by their original League of Legends abilities.

Champions enter the battle as powerful cards, and if you play smart, they level up to become even more epic. Level up your champions multiple times in-game to earn Champion Mastery crests the more you play.

Every champion and ally in the game comes from a region of Runeterra including Demacia, Noxus, Freljord, Piltover & Zaun, Ionia, Targon, Shurima, and the Shadow Isles.

Explore how different champions and regions work together to give you unique advantages against your opponents. Combine, adapt, and experiment with frequent new releases in an always-evolving meta.

Earn cards for free or buy exactly what you want with shards and wildcards—you’re in control of your collection, and you’ll never pay for random packs of cards. While there’s always the option to purchase specific cards, you can easily complete your collection without spending a cent.

Victory or defeat, each battle brings experience and progress. Choose which region you want to explore first and unlock allies, spells, and champions that call to you.

Once a week you’ll also unlock chests from the Vault. These chests level up the more you play, increasing the rarity of cards inside from common all the way up to champion. Chests can also contain wildcards, which can be turned into any card you want.

At the end of every season, 1024 qualifying Ranked players on each of LoR’s four regional shards (Americas, Asia, Europe, and Southeast Asia) will be able to compete for pride, glory, and a cash prize in the seasonal tournament.

But Ranked play isn’t the only way to qualify for Seasonal Tournaments—you can also run the Last Chance Gauntlet. Gauntlets are limited-time competitive modes with unique rules and exclusive rewards.

In Expeditions, draft and build a deck using champions, followers, spells from all over Runeterra—even if they’re not in your collection! Then test your newfound strategy against other players and battle for rewards.

Labs are limited-time experimental game modes focused on more extreme changes to the classic Legends of Runeterra formula. Choose a premade deck with specific constraints, or bring your own. The rules are always changing, and sometimes you might need a little help from your friends! Check back frequently to see what Heimerdinger is cooking up.

Absolutely Wonderful

Coming from a long time Hearthstone player (since beta) this game is just great. The combat system may be a little difficult for some to grasp initially but it allows for some very interesting games. I’ve made very silly mistakes but I’ve also capitalized on others mistakes. The ability to float mana for spells makes turns where you don’t have a play not feel so wasted. The devs are routinely updating and pushing out balance patches. The game is VERY ftp friendly. If you would like to spend some money and support the game then your able to buy individual cards! That’s right no packs. No loot boxes. No pay to win aspects what so ever. This game has to have the most generous store of any free game I’ve ever played. They give you tons of free cards for each region just for playing the game. But wait there’s more each week you get what’s called the weekly vault and inside yep you guessed it more free cards. So if your a ftp or someone who spends some money on games I think you'll be happy with this game. I’d give this game more then 5 stars if I was able. 5 stars 2 thumbs up.

Thank you to the developers of LOR I’ve sunk more hours into this game then I care to talk about. Keep up the hard work!

It’s not that Noob Friendly

I love League of Legends and find this to be a simpler card game I can possibly grasp, in aim to enjoy a card game with a lover of playing this type of stuff- To add, we’re both lovers of League of Legends too.

The thing is- The tutorial isn’t noob friendly, especially for those like me who have a hard time grasping understanding for card mechanics on its own. At first it’s fine, it makes you play the certain cards in order and tells you about them, but then after that it just gives you the cards to read with mechanics you never heard of and leaves you to figure it out. I sat here having to go through ‘try again’ after ‘try again’, slowly feeling more and more like an idiot unable to do it on my own to instead ask my friend to hand hold me what to do. Now this was for certain challenges understanding the hook mechanic and scout and so on so forth.

It would have been much better for these tutorial challenges, because they are tutorials for various different cards, to be a bit more hand holding or have an optional setting to turn on for hand holding on what to do. You can say, sit and figure it out- Which I can do, but I need to grasp how things work before I can start thinking on my own. This review mainly applies to those who can relate to me on this, having a hard time in general grasping card games and just want a better tutorial. I shouldn’t have to be spending more than two or five minutes trying to figure out how to play the cards...
