The Jungle is coming alive with the introduction of the League of Legends 2017 pre-season update. This massive update (6.22) introduces a variety of changes to the game's assassins as well as updates to its primary stealth mechanics: camouflage, invisibility, and shimmer.

The patch also makes changes to the Jungle -- particularly to the plants living there -- making them more dangerous, and occasionally helpful, than ever before. Monsters have evolved in the Summoner's Rift, with some even growing up and leaving the nest. And, as expected, there have been some changes to Masteries.

Once the update goes into open beta, it will automatically download when you launch League of Legends. You can delay this download if you don't want to participate, and activate it at any time while the beta is going on. Details on all of these changes -- and more -- can be found on the League of Legends site.

All Gaming Community is Negative on online. Why? Because all they do is brag about their skill and talk cold-less on the forum as well in-game too. They have no respect at all for their them self just like League of legend Community for example. If you i were you i wouldn't play League of Legend at all as you end up getting False Reported by Random player who will call you out on the battle Field line. (Gaming Community is going down a Dark Deep Road Path.)

League is an awesome game, but my personal advice is: Mute chat and enjoy. the worst that can happen is to get matched with trolls/afk, which happens once in a while. But the game is awesome, HoS and Dota are different, deal with it, i played all of them and liked them all.

League of legends is stupid. But who am I to say I never tried it because I really hate top over view games. But heros of the storm looks ok but mobas aren't really my thing. But from what I've seen the community is toxic.
