Matchmaking available on the Howling Abyss

Posted on at 5:28 AM by Moobeat
As you likely have already heard, Patch 3.6 "The Freljord patch" is out! The most prominent feature to come along with it is the brand new Howling Abyss ARAM map. Additionally, there is now a match making queue for the ARAM game type - no more dealing with pesky custom games!
Continue reading for the official announcement regarding the advent of matchmaking for ARAM games and the reroll feature.

Here is Brackhar with the good news:

"It's official! All Random All Mid matchmaking on the Howling Abyss is available this patch. What you started as a community movement quickly became one of the most popular game types in League of Legends. Now your ARAM battles will feature an icy new aesthetic, complete with new shopkeepers and destructible environments. We've also upgraded the tutorial map to the new look. Hit the Play button and select the Howling Abyss to queue up for your first matchmade ARAM game.

Spanning the deepest point on Runeterra, the bridge over the Howling Abyss is the subject of countless stories and legends. They say when the winds are high you can hear an unnatural howling emanating from deep within the chasm. Perhaps it's just some trick of the air. Or perhaps its source is something more sinister, lost long ago to the depths of the earth.

While the random element is a really fun part of the Howling Abyss, we know there are times you really don't want to play a particular champion. For this reason we've added a reroll feature to ARAM matchmaking. Each game you play on the Howling Abyss will earn you points toward a reroll. When you're really not pleased with the particular hand you're dealt in the game lobby, you can spend your points to receive a different random character.

You can learn more about the Howling Abyss along with the new reroll feature in the patch preview.
