Over the course of nearly 10 years of development, the current appearance of League of Legends is the result of past successful meat changes created by Riot Games.
1. Map Summoner’s Rift 2.0
It’s been a long time since the Summoner’s Rift map was updated by Riot Games. Remember at the time when the Summoner’s Rift 2.0 map was introduced, the League community had a heated debate between two “ancient” and “modern” schools.
One side asked Riot Games to maintain the old map because they were familiar with the old graphic platform of the League of Legends, the other side supported this innovation and thought it was necessary to develope.
Over time, it is possible that many players are still nostalgic about the old Summoner’s Rift map, but no one can deny that the map Summoner’s Rift 2.0 is really a stepping stone for Riot Games’ development, when It helps bring the League of Legends to a new level.
And also greatly influenced the design style of the game later, when the new champions were more “human”, rather than the images of a stylized cartoon character.
2. Universe of League of Legends
In the games listed in the current Esports genre, it is rare for any name to possess a massive and attractive plot system like League of Legends.
Professional players or players who are always focused on try-out will pay little attention to the marginalized stories of the champions, but in reality, the game plot system is developed in the form of an “Open World” is a factor that makes many ordinary players become more attached to the game.
A simple example is that not all players can master the gameplay of more than 140 champions in League of Legends, and when they have to choose one of those characters to inspire gaming, then The first element is probably shaping, then the skill set.
Before Hextech was added to LoL, players would have no way to own skins other than spending money on them, or being given gifts by friends (but friends also had to pay money to gift). And that’s why the Hextech feature was born.
In short, this is a feature that can help gamers own rare skins or items in the game without having to load cards. Of course, in return, players will have to expect a lot from the lucky factor and very rare to get an skins like that.
But we should not be too demanding, because above all, the random element in Hextech also brings a lot of interesting emotions, and if you are a hardworking plower, then you must have owned I have quite a “free” skins but extremely quality.
Increasingly, the newly released champions or the older champions have more complex and difficult skill mechanisms to play.
Riot Games representatives shared about whether the champions who have a simple play will disappear completely from League of Legends? The answer is no, but their numbers will get less and less.
Riot Games believes that champions with simple gameplay should only play a prerequisite for new players to get familiar with League of Legends. Garen or Warwick or Shen are rare names, even though they have been edited but still keep a simple and easy-to-use skill set, and Riot has no intention of launching more such champions in the future.
However, difficult-to-play champions create a unique personality for League of Legends, when turning this game into an important personal skill game, besides tactical play and also makes unique spreads.
