Summoner’s Rift, the main 5v5 map in the popular MOBA game League of Legends, is going to be remodeled! The announcement on the official page states “This effort is a big part of our commitment to continually improve League of Legends. We’re focusing on preserving the spirit of Summoner’s Rift and evolving how the map communicates gameplay. Given the importance of Summoner’s Rift to League of Legends, the fundamental structure of the map remains untouched. Flashable walls, turret ranges, lane sizes, brush interaction and ward placements are exactly as they are on the current map. The intention is to keep moment-to-moment League of Legends the same while improving gameplay through additional clarity.” By clarity, the team states that they mean that they made the map better at drawing your eye to the most important things. For instance, it is only a background during a teamfight when there is a lot of important information of the screen. The jungle creeps also got a bit of a update. “For example, the Krugs’ (double golem replacements) rocky exteriors look like the damage soaking mini-tanks they are–and they appear weaker than the hulking Blue Sentinel.” This is a very nice addition to the game, graphical updates are always exciting! What do you guys think of the update? Do you think it was necessary?
