What is League of Legends?

League of Legends (LoL) is a team-based multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game by Riot Games. Two teams consisting of five champions engage in a battle to destroy each other’s bases. Each player controls a champion and as the game progresses, players can level up their champions by earning experience points, earning gold, and buying and selling items to aid their battle. A mobile port was released on Android and iOS as League of Legends: Wild Rift in 2021.

How does a VPN lower ping?

Shorter connection routes between you and gaming servers can lower latency and overall lag. This means packets of data are able to move between your computer and the game server faster, reducing any noticeable delay between your actions and what happens in the game—and giving you an advantage. Usually, connecting to the VPN server closest to the game server will give the best results.
