League of Legends is a big game, 15 million big to be specific. It’s also an e-sport and not just the kind of “e-sport” that gets thrown around in PR hype before a new PvP game release. League of Legends e-sport scene is the real deal with it’s latest championship garnering over 1 million live viewers. When any game commands that large of an audience, let alone a game as competitive as League of Legends, any changes to the game’s balancing must be explained in great detail.
Players are passionate about what they feel is “true” balance in their eyes. So when Riot Games announced their planned changes for the third season of League of Legends, they had to create an indepth overview video complete with a chapters menu! The devils in the details and both Riot and their fans know it.
The video features Riot’s Associate Game Analyst “Jatt” and Lead Designer “Morello” who cover three main topics: Items, The Jungle and Masteries.
