LoL: The most requested option by players that will arrive in just a few weeks

LoL: The most requested option by players that will arrive in just a few weeks

League of Legends players have asked countless times for a change in the way champion select is done in the post-game lobby. Now, several years later, Riot Games has listened to them and promises to honor their request.

All League of Legends players accustomed to ranked matches or other game modes where the champion selection phase is turn-based have had a mishap when they tried to change their champion with that of a teammate. This feature isn't widely used due to issues that can arise when trading — especially when playing with strangers. Overcoming obstacles such as poor linguistic communication, the possibility that allies do not have the champion we want, or the simple fact that they are not attentive to chat is almost a feat.

Riot Games gives in after many community demands

Because of all these issues, the swap champions feature was underutilized, and League of Legends players came up with an interesting alternative: what if, instead of swapping champions, we could ask our teammates to forfeit their position during the selection phase? This would solve all the problems by not relying on communication, since it would be enough to press a button for a notification to be sent to our teammates. It would also do away with the classic "yes, I'd choose your champion, but I don't have it".

The problem with this feature is that Riot Games decided not to include it in the game, but now the developers have changed their mind. The idea was considered a stroke of genius by the community and players made a large number of requests after the studio introduced it to Wild Rift. It took a while, but League of Legends officials have announced that the feature will be available in the coming weeks. It won't be until the start of the preseason, in mid-November, but the earliest we will have to wait for patch 13.1 — the launch patch for season 13 (January 2023).

Along with this improvement, Riot Games announced some of its greatest successes with changes to ranks over the past few months and some future plans like ensuring anonymity in champion select. In truth, it looks like the League of Legends devs have really stepped up with systems aimed at improving the game for next season. It's a never-ending road, but it's undeniable that the situation has improved considerably over the past few years.
