Though Pokemon once again stood out as a prime example of what a Steiner Tree looks like in the video game world (more specifically Kanto and Johto’s regions), I already made a post about that, so instead I focused on yet another video game I have seemingly been addicted to these days- League of Legends.
The above picture shows a place known as the Summoner’s Rift, where “summoners” channel these magical crystals and summon powerful characters to do battle against one another on teams of 5 v 5. The different vertices on this map signify the positions (except for blue, that’s the shop.) These also signify which “lane you are in.
The goal of the game is to destroy the other team’s base, run down your opponents and in some cases be as rude as possible while doing so! This being said, most professional players of the game actually take into account timing objectives (slaying the dragon, killing towers, etc.) and must have each player rotate back and forth from shop to upgrade their items and from lane to lane, capturing objectives and fighting the enemy. For the sake of our class, I thought it would be cool to showcase some trees within the rift!
In any case, the “jungler” character, who traverses the jungle defeating monsters, often must put this into practice the most. During the first fifteen minutes of the game, one or two characters are matched up against one another to collect as much gold from each others’ minions as possible.
The jungler’s job is to plan out their routes efficiently to both capture various jungle monsters and help their teammates in lane defeat enemy characters and capture turrets. This is much harder than it sounds, League is like a game of chess; every move you make has its benefits and drawbacks.
I just thought it would be cool to showcase some trees within yet another one of my favorite video games! If you’re more interested in what the game really is, and had a hard time understanding my vague description, feel free to visit https://play.na.leagueoflegends.com/en_US or simply search the game on YouTube, tons of people stream it!
