League of Legends (Lol) is one of the most popular video games on the planet with 100 million active players. Since its inception, it is the engine of esport, just in front of other games like Counter-Strike, Fortnite or Dota 2.
The two teams, consisting of five players, competed in a Bercy boiling in order to destroy the fortress (called the Nexus) of the opponent. If the principle seems simple, the game is not yet easy to understand for neophytes.
In addition to the 17,000 spectators at the AccorHotel Arena, several tens of millions of fans followed the final online and the match was even broadcast on the forecourt of the City Hall of Paris.
