It has been a while since we did a big update about the features we have in development, so I'll work with the guys when I'm back next week to put something together.

There is a cool feature we're working with a major magazine to give more details about, so while I'm sure it gets old to hear "soon", we are actively working on the biggest update ever to LOL - so some pretty awesome stuff will be coming up soon.

We wish everything was faster, but we are also upping the quality bar across the board, so I think you guys will agree it will be worth the wait.

This thread is now about progress updates for league of legends. I am still however waiting for Tryndamere's reply "next week"

Also I lose faith in Riot when they troll us with threads like this one. (Anyone who says this was anything but a bait and switch is merely attempting to insult my intelligence)


Let's take a look at all the amazing features that have been added.

- More skins
- More champions
- Season 1 with:
- Ranked matches, ladder system. (Which removed normal stats)
- New UI for PVP.net (looks different, performs the same)
- Various improvements on PVP.net stor
- Improved server stability (granted, this is one of the few promises they actually kept, largely because you can't have an online game if your servers don't work)
- Improved in-game store
- Various bug fixes.
- Co-op VS AI.
- Mastery pages
- New patcher
- Forums search
- The Tribunal
- Competitive scene

Now let's look at all the announced features we're still waiting on, along with updates that have been released about them. Keep in mind that many of these were announced back in 2009.


- Masteries rework
- Magma Chamber
- Advanced settings for practice matches
- New game modes ("Soon" - Zileas)
- Replays
- Observer mode
- Achievements
- Normal game stats
- Summoner Spell Promote rework
- Summoner Spell Flash rework (Honestly, probably not neccessary after the last nerf, but still haven't heard anything on it) (Holding off on this design-side - Morello Edit)
- Evelynn *stealth* rework (Xyphoreus is working on it)
- PTR ()
- PROMISED 450 and 1350 IP price point champions


- Community page on website (removed and replaced with, GO FIGURE, a link to the merchandise store, shows what they think of the community alright...)

New Patcher is now live.

Co-op is now live.

Where's the stats for normal games which were promised at the launch of season one? Where are the Twisted fate red card bugs fixes? Being unable to use Red cards and on Tfate because makes his PAC into wait 3 seconds for Gold card always.

Where's the achievements? Why even have that bar there if you're just gonna not do anything with it and just end up removing it in a few patches anyways? Why, oh why after nearly 5 straight months does the forums search still not work? Why is the new champ still 975 RP when you promised champions would be released at ALL price points, but never did release any below 975 RP since you've said that?

And once again the one cool skin costs nearly 20 dollars which is supposedly going to all these promised features that after a year of playing I'm still not seeing.
Guinsoo stated the patch would be epic, the balance changes are good, and lo and behold, he works on the live game team. "Epic" doesn't mean "Guinsoo became a game engineer, warped time and space, and made new features." :P

I'd totally go on the live team if it gave the me power to warp time and space.

It doesn't take a time/space warp to get features that should've been released with season 1 out several months after.

But...but...I sacrificed a goat to Jesse Perrings to beg for his assistance to Guinsoo. Does that mean Baaahb died for nothing???

But it's also not stating that he couldn't. I for one think that the chance of Guinsoo having the ability to warp time and space makes him too much of a threat to the balance of this world. You have opened my eyes Morella. He will be stopped before a heinous event such as this ever occurs. The balance must be upheld.
