So what happens to the Proving Grounds when this goes live? I'm assuming we have to say goodbye to the murder bridge of old. :'(


The old Murder Bridge collapsed into the abyss from so many epic battles.... never to be seen again.

Not sure if this has been asked or answered, but will there be any changes to how your random champ is selected?

I ask because I've gotten the same champ many times in a row and it doesn't seem random sometimes. I got Shyvana 8 times or so in a days worth of arams once.

The point of aram is to not play your favourite champs, it is to play a random champ and try to be good with him, showing your familiarity of the champs in the game.


This is true, but there is nothing wrong with me wanting to play champions that I like to play. I'm not going to dodge / quit or anything like that, but I'm allowed to hope that I get champions I know and enjoy playing the game with.

Unfortunately, aram has nowadays become a get an op team comp or quit type thing in custom. But even after making an actual queue for aram, do you think people wont quit at champ select if they dont get who they want?


Dodge penalties and the fact that we cant see the other team will go a long way with this. It will not solve it, but it will definitely help. A queue for ARAM will also take out a lot of the frustration that comes from someone dodging.

Also, riot doesnt prioritize profit over quality of content, look at their efforts on art reworks and finally giving skins to skinless champs.


This is true, but Riot is still a business. Them providing excellent and consistent quality is not the same as them giving away their products for free. Unlocking all champions effectively takes half of their potential profit out of ARAM.

Forgot to add this one - exploring how some of these shapes fog out.

Wish I could zoom out that far....
