League of Legends Preseason 2021 is bringing lots of new features to the game. New items, champions, and even a new in-game item shop. But with every update, many player wants fall through the cracks. Let’s take a look at the top five things players want out of the upcoming League of Legends preseason.
League of Legends Preseason 2021: 5 Things We Want
1. A Fixed Client
Riot Games has produced one of the most popular video games of all time and even helped propel esports to a new level with League of Legends, but year after year the client seems to get neglected. Riot seems incapable of producing a League of Legends client that isn’t constantly crashing or filling with bugs. Take the time and fix it.
2. Better Matchmaking
With over 100 champions and countless mechanics to learn, League of Legends is hard for new players as it is. An update to matchmaking to identify smurf accounts earlier and place them in higher MMR games will make a world of difference in attracting and keeping new players.
3. New Keystones
League of Legends Preseason 2021 is heavily focused on improving gameplay mainly through item changes. It may be time to take a look at updating keystones and runes. Very little variety exists in which runes to pick, with conqueror and ravenous hydra being dominant choices for almost any fighter. New incentives to pursue different rune paths would add a much needed variety.
4. Easier Blue Essence
Collecting blue essence is a fairly difficult task. Players are only guaranteed to receive 50 per day and that’s only if they win a game. It can be found in chests or through selling champion shards, but getting chests and then having the keys to open them is another process on its own. Bringing back a system like the original influence points system will help players unlock more champions and revive lesser played ones.
5. Reduce the Cost of Mastery Tokens
With blue essence already being difficult to acquire, charging players over 2000 of it to unlock champion masteries is quite expensive. It forces players to choose between unlocking a new champion (or multiple) and showing off their achievements with another champion.
