League of Legends Preseason 2021: 5 Things We Want

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

LOL 2021

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.

Riot Games revealed latest Champion Roadmap for League of Legends

Riot Games has finally revealed its latest Champion Roadmap for League of Legends, sharing teasers of all the upcoming characters; including a “romantic” new jungler coming in Season 11.

With Yone, Lillia, Sett, and now Samira joining the League of Legends roster in 2020. Riot devs are already looking forward to the next batch of champions they plan on adding in the coming season.

Riot Games has already revealed major changes coming in Season 11, with a massive item overhaul expected to arrive in the preseason. And they have now revealed teasers for each of the champions expected to arrive before and during the next season.

League of Legends 11 Champion Roadmap

In Riot’s blog post on September 24, League of Legends dev Reav3 explained that, after Yone’s addition to the game, they were keen on introducing more characters as champions that may have already appeared or been mentioned in the lore of Runeterra.

Reav3 followed up hinting that one of the champions to be introduced would see yet another familiar character; explaining that they are “going to bring another character players have been longing for to the Rift next year.”

For this champion roadmap, Riot revealed that they still had a mid-lane Mage, who is expected to be confirmed as the mysterious character Seraphine, and a new Support champ, to add in 2020.

Seraphine is expected to be the “mid-lane mage” that Riot has been teasing.

New League of Legends Support champion

The new support character has been described as a “heavily-armored runaway criminal;” in the champion roadmap, leaving any enemies and their gear “twisted and shattered.”

While this new champion’s playstyle is currently unknown, Riot hinted that they may have some mobile abilities in their kit. Adding that the “criminal’s been known to mount a quick retreat when cornered;” although we will have to wait to see how that will translate in-game.

This fugitive is currently scheduled to be final champion released in 2020; although champion release dates are always subject to change.

New League of Legends Jungler teased for Season 11

Following the addition of Lillia in the Spirit Blossom event, it looks like Riot has yet another jungle skirmisher in the works. And they are expected to be the first champion released in early 2021.

“You may just find yourself falling for our romantic new jungle skirmisher, who will be twisting hearts and possessing minds early next year.” Riot Games teased, before sharing an image of a ring that ties in with the new champ.

League of Legends fans will likely have to wait for more information about the 2021 Jungler. But Riot seems to have plenty of champions lined up to keep fans entertained until then.

Dr. Mundo VGU Preview

After Riot announced that Mundo would be the next champion to receive a VGU. Following Fiddlesticks’ and Volibear’s rework, they have now provided an update on the Madman of Zaun.

The dev team shared that they are “going to keep Mundo’s gameplay pretty similar” overall but they plan on making him a difficult champion to lock down, by adding some form of CC immunity to his kit.

Riot also shared some concept art for the old champion’s rework, revealing a modern take on Mundo and giving fans a glimpse of what to expect from the VGU.

It is worth noting that as with many of these teasers, the Riot devs can still make changes before the champions are finally set live in-game.
