In this article we’ll look at the highlights of the 2017 League of Legends season, including changes to champions and the meta, as well as the ban system in Summoner’s Rift. Regardless of whether you’re new to the game or a veteran, you’ll find helpful tips to help you make the most of the new year.
Lessons from 2017 League of Legends season
There are some lessons to be learned from the 2017 League of Legends season. First, the LCK should not be dismissed by the public. Many of these teams were founded on the principles of developing their own talented players. However, as the league has grown, some of these teams have been caught up in the “super team” hype. In South Korea, for example, brand value has become more important than a defined identity. The result was a team that fell to the second place, and a team that had been considered a LCK powerhouse by the public is no longer considered one.
The Misfits, on the other hand, fought against heavily favored SK Telecom T1 like equals. They were able to win because they adapted to their opponents. Their team took advantage of the weaker champions of SK Telecom T1, including Thresh and Alistar. They also showed good fundamentals and were able to adapt to the changes in the meta. These factors led to them passing over the approachable Group D, Team SoloMid and slumping Flash Wolves units.
Changes to champions
League of Legends recently received a major update that improved the durability of champions. The changes to the game’s champions will make them more durable and allow players to enjoy more competitive gameplay. This will also make it more appealing to new players and make the game more balanced.
As the year in review concludes, Riot Games will make some changes to champions to improve their play styles. For example, Aurelion Sol’s Q will now allow him to breathe fire. This is a great change for the champion. It will make him a more dragon-like character, but he will still be able to fly. In addition to this, he will be able to use his Q while flying.
Champions’ abilities will also change, including the Phase Rush ability, which will trigger if you hit your champion three times with three different attacks. This ability will increase your move speed and reduce your opponent’s cooldowns. Another new feature coming to the game is All For One, which is an upcoming mode in Wild Rift. With this new feature, players can choose their favorite champion and have others vote for their choice. If there’s a tie, the final selection will be determined by random selection.
Changes to the meta
During the year that was 2016, League of Legends experienced a huge meta shift. This change made it more difficult to one-shot enemies, and it shifted the meta to favour champions with late-game scaling. As a result, many champions that were previously easy to one-shot largely disappeared.
The changes to the meta were made to address players’ concerns. One major concern was the increased number of weak champions. The Ardent Censer was one of the most popular meta items in 2017. This item gave healing characters a huge boost, allowing them to hit more targets and heal themselves. This meant that healers didn’t need to spend time on other healing items.
Another major concern was the game’s instability. This caused many players to go on hiatuses for the winter holidays. Despite these difficulties, the game is still very popular and has thousands of professional players and streamers. Changes to the meta are inevitable in any game, because players have to adjust.
Changes to the ban system on Summoner’s Rift
The ban system in Summoner’s Rift has been undergoing some changes, and players should be aware of these changes. The ban system is a major part of the draft phase. The bans will be based on the number of champions available. The ban phase will last for 30 seconds.
Currently, the ban system on Summoner’s RIFT is broken into two parts. First, a team member can only ban his champion if he or she has two teammates who have locked the ban. The ban can be up to two minutes.
The ban system is also being changed for Wild Rift. The ban system will make it easier for players to ban other players for doing certain things. It also lets players send signals to teammates and prevent champion bans. This new feature is going live in the next Wild Rift update.
Changes to Twitch’s “Year in Review” feature
If you follow League of Legends on Twitch, you’ve likely seen the updates to the “Year in Review” feature, which is a great way to look back at the past year. This feature sends out an email to you with interesting stats and an option to download a snapshot of the year. However, it has recently been updated to include new features, including a “channel trailer” feature that allows creators to include a short video on their homepage.
While the changes are minor, they do make the experience more enjoyable for viewers. In addition to providing a great viewing environment, they also make content creators more accessible with new tools. For example, if you’re a YouTube star, you can now upload a pre-recorded video.
