League of Legends is a popular game – before the match starts, you have to select which champion you will be using and take it from us; there are many champions for you to choose from. They range from heroic warriors to swift assassins, and everything in between the two. If you choose, you can fight as a shape-shifting dragon or a tree …yes, it’s that cool.
How many champions are in League of Legends? Right now, there are a total of 154 champions, with the latest one being Viego. When League of Legends was first released back in 2009, there were 40 champions, and from there, new champions have continuously been added. The iconic 100th released champion was Draven.
Not only are there a lot of champions to choose from, but you also have a variety of heroes.
