League of Legends launches season one play

League of Legends, the strategy title from the makers of DotA Allstars, officially starts its first season of competitive play today. Starting today, players will be fielding their champions in ranked matches with a series of planned tournament events to occur during the course of the season.

To celebrate, the above trailer has been released. It is a ridiculously epic battle with angels and demons and some dude who looks like he crawled out of James Cameron’s Avatar. There’s also a darkly-clad woman wielding a pair of blades that I wouldn’t mind getting to know better.

Who’s been keeping up with the game? Did anybody participate in pre-season play?

[Thanks for the heads-up, Andrew!]
