About Legends of Runeterra, Tournaments for money
After the stunning success of League of Legends, the developers at Riot Games have been looking for ways to expand the game’s universe and build on the solid foundations provided by their MOBA. Hence, Legends of Runeterra was born, a free-to-play digital collectible card game with an appetite to dethrone Hearthstone. Though the title has not managed to beat the popularity of Blizzard’s long-standing card game – not yet at least – LoR has a dedicated fanbase and the developers continue to improve their new creation. The company even invited a number of Magic the Gathering veterans to test the game during its development. LoR is praised for how accessible it is while managing to preserve the strategic depth so characteristic of the genre. There are no booster packs or other card bundles purchasable with real currency. Instead, there is a battle pass that provides huge numbers of free cards and materials every week. LoR is available on PC, Android and iOS, which means that similarly to other games of its kind, it can be enjoyed anywhere and at any time.
