By Khalil Johnson - Staff Reporter
League of Legends has now taken over the internet being known as the most popularized pc game in the world. The League of Legends club is growing and becoming more popular throughout Highline college.
The purpose for this club is to bring together and develop a community revolving around League of Legends. They want to create new friendships with one another and build appreciation for the game itself.
Maelynn De Los Angeles is the president of the club and their vice president is Nicklaus Garces. The club was already created in November 2015 by Heon-sang You and Liz Kim. However, De Los Angeles was handed the presidency by Kevin Burton, the previous president of the club. She has been the president of this club since the last year of fall quarter.
De los Angeles has been attending Highline college for almost two years now, and her goal is to keep the club going and bring together the League of Legends community.
"I am really into the video game and it's cool to have people with similar hobbies and interests join together in the same environment," said De Los Angeles.
The objective of the game is to battle with your team to fight the opposing team to destroy their base.
Some of the members found this club through previous members who play the game as well. "I started going because my friends started to come," said club member Savannah Heruska. "I have played league before, and I was trying to look for this club."
Another club member said the goal for this club is to, "bring the community together and for people to play games. "It's fun, and it gets very competitive," said Joshua Witt, another club member. "It's a good way to end the week since it's on Fridays."
Vice President Nicklaus Garces said that the main reason why he joined the club was because his friends played it and it was a way to connect with them. "The club makes me feel like there's a lot more people that share the same hobbies as me," said Garces. "It is really fun to play with everyone instead of playing by yourself."
"Some people just love the fun of the game and the social part of it," said De Los Angeles. "Some students like the competitive aspect of it."
There are 10-15 members in the club, but there are 80 members in their online group. Anyone and everyone can join the club. They encourage people to come and try out the game.
The game is free and there's no experience needed if you're interested. "Some people get intimidated because they think they have to be a certain rank in the game, but we don't judge or discriminate by that either," said De Los Angeles.
Meetings are every Friday in Building 30, room 317 from 1:30 until 4:45. This may change for future quarters.
