Hey, I LOVE this game and the updates seem awesome! That being said, I was also wondering if there is any headway being made on a new deathmatch map. Having just 1 more fighting map could more than double the entertainment value of this game. I feel that it can't be too hard to make another symmetrical/mirror image map, but am curious of your opinions. Would really like to see a new map in the near future. Looking forward to the updates!

When can we expect the detailed posts on what is coming? Should I be F5ing or will it be later in the week?

One of the best ideas I've heard in a LONG time.

Nice one.

Regardless of my concerns, I am really excited for what is coming season 3. Keep up the great work Riot!
It is scary - that's my primary concern to start is making sure that this doesn't change League fundamentally, but instead improves it (people like League, don't wanna change that!)

A lot of the feedback we've received has been focused on lack of item variety, and our jungle analysis has pointed to a number of problems to fix and opportunities we can take to make more champs viable and make jungling strategies differ with options. This is why we're confident that this will make long-term improvements.

Balance will need to be watched closely, but that's the cost of entry for big changes - easily worth the cost, imo.

I just hope that season3 will start in November at least

can't wait for AD caster items (Talon <3 <3 <3), new recipes for low tier items and reworked jungle

only the barrier spell on SR makes me worry ~~ this will be broken on bruisers and other champs that already have good scaling shield from skills (imagine riven with barrier tower diving like a baws)

Barrier on SR.

Ugh.

Everything else sounds great, but'd it'd rather leave barrier in ARAM - ESPECIALLY if it's so strong that there's 10 a game. There's already a ridiculous amount of shields in the game.

Morello, I want to thank you for stopping by the thread I made, and putting some of the support player's fears to rest.

Nice discussion. I'm really looking forward to S3, and all of the itemization changes.

I want this the most out of everything done to this game.


And poor flash what are they saying....Oh what? I can flash shield now.... Yeah that makes things more dangerous, it wont take you 20 min for first blood.
