LoL has been around for over a decade. It is only natural that the game has a lot of characters or Champions as they are called. Currently there are around 153 Champions that you can choose and use. Naturally, you won't be able to master all of them which is why some players stick to a certain number of champs. They use the same Champions over and over again and there's nothing wrong with that. When you are able to play and execute that champ to the fullest, then it is a good idea to have a couple of reliable ones.

Why people would buy and use certain Champions

• One reason and it may not be a logical one is that they like the look of the Champion. People play League of Legends female characters because they like their looks. There are some that even spend money on buying skins. There's nothing wrong with that as long as you are able to play them well.

• The other reason would be the role of the Champion. Like any MOBA game, the Champs have their own roles to fulfill. Players will play Champs for certain roles because that is where they excel at. You have the five roles such as support, top, mid, jungler, and ADC. Buy a Champ based on the role that you excel at but be sure to have some that are in other roles to branch out.

• Another good reason for using a specific Champ is its mechanics. Different Champs have different kits other than their roles. You can have the most basic Champs or the most complex ones out there. It is a good idea when you have Champs to lean on but some Champs that you can rely on for fun.

• Having a pool of Champions with different roles and kits can be fun. You're not just limited in playing the free ones but as well as those in your arsenal.

• There are also players that use Champions based on the meta. The meta changes from time to time so this means several of your Champs can be weakened or even strengthened based on the meta.

A few things to remember

• You can look up guides and tips on how you can effectively use certain champs. You may be surprised to find out that there are some things that your champ may be good at which you didn't know. You also have to consider the fact that item combinations and teamwork can factor in.

• If you also have a lot of time to spend on the game, chances are that you can build up your selected Champs and play them from time to time.

You can have your own reasons for playing the Champions that you want and that can depend on your play style, preferences, and more.
