PVP.net is the front-end interface for the player versus player aspect of League of Legends.
PVP.net is a platform for League of Legends to launch from. It allows you to add friends, check the League of Legends store, and join chat rooms. PVP.net can be considered a separate entity from the actual game but the two are linked and cannot be used separately.
PVP.net uses a "runtime environment" called Adobe AIR. It is however directly built in the client, and does not require any download/installation from you.
Season 1 Redesign
The interface received an upgrade when Season 1 kicked off. The redesign included new skin selection, a new profile page with more stats, Draft Mode compatibility, and a new look in general. <flashmp3>File:PVP.net login music.mp3</flashmp3>
