Universe Update

A new story is now up on the Universe, featuring Lissandra!

"A hero is anyone who answers the call to do what must be done. 
They sacrifice so much because of a singular truth: this fragile world requires protection. 
This means everything to Lissandra, who rarely rests, especially not on nights like tonight, when stars align in strange ways. The round apex of her private sanctum features many rune-inscribed windows to harness the powers from various celestial syzygies."

Rell's story, The Second Grave, by Jared Rosen was also released!

Ruined King: Gameplay Deep Dive

Here's more info about the gameplay on Ruined King - "Rise against ruin and experience the League of Legends universe like never before!"

"RUINED KING: A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS STORY GAMEPLAY DEEP DIVE 
Rise against ruin and experience the League of Legends universe like never before! 
The first indie game from Riot Forge, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will offer players a new way to experience the League of Legends universe. As a single-player, turn-based RPG, players will be able to dive deeper into the world of Runeterra, and uncover the mysteries of Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles. 
Explore the World of Runeterra 
Players will be able to explore the world, navigating through the twisted streets of Bilgewater and uncovering the mysterious dungeons of the Shadow Isles. As players make their way through various locations, they will encounter various secrets, traps and puzzles, as well as new enemies and monsters that will be roaming around the environment. 
Players can interact with their environment, whether it's chatting with friendly NPCs or initiating combat with enemies. Each Champion will have two Dungeon Skills they can use in the dungeons to initiate combat, interact with creatures or the environment while exploring. Some puzzles or secrets can only be solved with specific champions, like breaking weak walls withBraum's shield or revealing stealth enemies with Ahri's Orb.
Familiar Champions, New Ways to Fight 
Ruined King introduces a new spin on the indie RPG genre, especially with combat. While the champions may be familiar, players will get to see this unlikely team fight in a new style of combat outside of the Summoner’s Rift. 
Ruined King uses a turn-based, lane initiative combat system. Champions will take turns casting lane, instant, and ultimate abilities. Champions will also have the ability to use items, as well as passive abilities during combat. The system includes a health, mana, an overcharge bar, and a turn order list. 
Players will be able to level up champions, each champion will have the following stats: Attack Power, Will, Stamina, Physical Defense, Magic Defense, Critical Damage, Critical Chance, Haste, Evade, Armor Penetration, Magic Penetration, and Lifesteal. 
Champions will have roles that are similar to traditional roles seen in RPGs, while also having abilities that are very unique to Ruined King. There are a number of ways players can mix and match champions to create synergies in combat. Through the Runes and Ability Upgrades, players can customize a champion further to shift their roles and capabilities to synergize better with your other active champions 
Fight in Style 
Ruined King will include a large roster of items ranging from potions to weapons to ensure players can fight in style. There will be a wide variety of weapons and armor such as swords, pistols and Warmog's armor that can be equipped to champions that will change their stats. Each champion can equip a Weapon, Armor, and up to three accessories. Weapons will have unique visuals that will be visible in combat as well as when champions are exploring the environment. Items can be customized and crafted through Accessories, Enchanting, Alchemy and Cooking. 
Enjoy Runeterra’s Recreational Activities 
In Ruined King players will find various activities throughout the game that can lead to bountiful rewards or uncover new lore. 
Bounty Board - Check the bounty board and hunt powerful minibosses in the world for big rewards. 
Fishing - Go fishing not only to catch the various aquatic life in Bilgewater but also any treasures that may be at the bottom of the ocean. Ruined King will also feature a Fishiary to track the fish you catch. Fish can also be used in cooking and can be traded to the fishmonger for Black Marks to be used to purchase exclusive items from the Black Market. 
Bestiary - Track the creatures you encounter and fight with information on their abilities, locations and loot. Unlock Beast Perks for defeating large amounts of specific creatures, granting permanent passive boosts to the Champions. 
Side Quests - There are many side quests that give valuable rewards ranging from items to new ultimates and legendary weapons, as well as puzzles to solve, and secrets to find. 
Battle Arena - Fight through waves of enemies to receive rewards based on your performance. 
Lore - Find lore scattered through the world for extra bits of story. Collecting lore also unlocks rewards for how much players find. 
It has been amazing to see the community's excitement for Ruined King, and we can’t wait to share more details with players in 2021. To learn more about Ruined King: A League of Legends Story go to: https://ruinedking.com"

 

Miscellaneous

  • Riot Scruffy tweeted about strategic choice in Preseason:
[1] "Strategic choice is a core preseason goal, so we're evaluating build diversity across classes and champions. The 10.24 landscape looks like this for Mythics: 
-A promising start, more adjustments will make it better
-Immediate adjustments for tanks with Sunfire so dominant"
[2] "Diving a bit deeper on strategic choices for items:  
What really matters is the choices that each champion has (rather than the class). "No champ builds a single mythic more than 75% of games." 
Looking closer at specific champs reveals what's working and not currently."
[3] "Some classes like ADC, Fighter, AP assassin/bruiser are very close to our goal.  
A few are mostly hitting the goal but need some adjustments (Mage, support tanks) 
And we've committed to working on diversifying farming tank choices beyond Sunfire."

[4] "Choice is only one of our goals for items so we still have other improvements to make around satisfaction, counterplay, and the Legendary item pools. 
It's also likely that champion choices become more solved over time and we need to keep adjusting."

"The King is dead. Demacia is mourning. And in the eyes of Garen Crownguard, it’s his fault. 
But can he rise to the challenge when Demacia needs him again? 
While on a peacetime expedition beyond the borders of Demacia, Garen, Quinn, and the Dauntless Vanguard uncover a plot that threatens to destroy long-standing alliances. As the knight-ranger Quinn tries to get word back to Demacia, Garen and his comrades make a desperate last stand. How long can they last, and at what cost?"

      • ""Hey, hello. It's me, your favorite twilight herald.”"


VALORANT
"Hey, we’re back with Patch 1.14, if you’re wondering what happened to Patch 1.13, we used it to roll out some Unreal upgrades. So there’s that.

This one’s light on the Agents, big on Icebox. This round of Icebox changes is focused on getting the A site and verticality just right.

To help combat smurfs/AFKers, you must now win 10 Unrated matches before you can unlock Competitive. Speaking of which, the slew of Observer additions should make it better to follow the competition. Rank distribution has also been adjusted to help those at lower levels in their climb.

The limited Snowball Fight mode arrives and the Night.Market is open."
