New Idea for "Recommended Items list" in the shop
 
3 Attachment(s)
I just want to share an idea for LoL improvement purposes for happy LoL gamers like me :) Lately there have been numerous accounts of unsatisfied LoL players >:( with the new Item Shop Interface. Some rage about its appearance and others complain about its inconvenience of confusing checklists and other countless problems.

Today's the day I will show you all a little solution.


Okay you know at the start of the game when you open the item shop and on to the left side, there is a tab named "Recommended" with a list of recommended items for the champion that you play?

Here's a link to the image just so you know what Im talking about.

Normally, when I play I automatically skip straight to the other tab named "All Items" and manually look for the item that I need that I believe is most effective at crucial moments during the game. Only noobs look at the recommended build list :p im just kidding. I'm not saying that the "Recommended" list is useless or anything. It may be for beginners or for players who are trying out a champion for the first time. But I think it would be extremely convenient for experienced players to customize a set of their own recommended item list to get a smoother and quicker way to purchase items on the go instead of going through a hassle of searching for the items. Another irritation is looking for consumable items where you have to search for it through the menu with a couple of clicks rather than just one single click of a button. I think these are the main reasons why many players are frustrated.

If it took a while just to find your item while your team is out there fighting even for a few seconds, you could have swooped in and out in a second and regrouped with your allies in combat which would make a huge difference in the game. I don't know about you but I am very picky when it comes to finding the right items during stressful situations in the game. Every time I go back to the item shop, I look at the recommended build list and I get really frustrated because there's a majority of those items on that list that I don't use. Its just sitting there in my way. And in order to find consumable items you have to make a couple of clicks to find it which can be very aggravating. Don't you ever feel the same?

Here's what I had in mind:
-I think it would be great if there was a new tab in the profile section and it can be named "Item Builds" where players can create multiple item build lists and have it be displayed in your shop at the start of any game.

This can make their playing experience a lot more comfortable by having direct access to multiple build lists of their own customization during a game to adapt to certain situations depending how AD heavy, AP heavy, CC heavy the other team is. For example, the "Masteries" tab consists of multiple pages for players to customize their masteries specifically for a certain champion.

-Another idea is that the consumable items should be placed under another separate tab for a quicker selection method. This is another convient idea that can be benificial to players.

Think about it. Wouldn't it be great if you had easy access to your own build lists already setup for you during a game? Man heck yeah! I mean why not?! This is an MMORPG strategy game after all. Think of all the possibilities this can acheive. We can experiment our item build list in a game and test how effective it is on different champions. We can also be able to see the stats beforehand to strategize a way to improve pairing items and come up with different build styles.

I made an example of a concept of my idea in the attachments below. Its just a visual to get the picture of my idea. Let me know what you guys think. If you have some more ideas to add on please share to help League of Legends improve. Please give a thumbs up if you like this idea. :)


Just for copyrights sake, I do not own any of these images. I only edited them to display my concept idea.

Dude that would be awesome. The freakin Recommended tab is totally useless and a waste of space! I agree with the part where you just go straight to the other tab and look for your own items haha

Not bad.

This is a great idea. Honestly I think there's enough space to just create a third tab to the right of "All Items" and just call it "Custom/User Builds" or something like that.
