Any chance we'll see some ARAMS happening at tournaments now? ;D

So if I understand correctly, if I queue for this map (once it is live) I will receive IP every game? And not just games within a certain time frame? (Right now you only get IP for so many ARAM's you play as a custom, because of the time limit) Sorry I don't know exactly how to phrase my question, but I think it makes sense.

I say throw up the ARAM queue now. I know I will be spending most of my time testing it out

I like this concept a lot better than the pictures of the actual map so far. The in game shots you've posted seem way too mono-colored. Its just all blue. I get that you want it to seem like an extremely cold place but it's a bit bland looking because of it.


We will address the color in the next iterations, thank you for the feedback.
Our process involves grey boxing, then black and white value passes, then color and polish.

this is to anyone at Riot who can Answer but will the ARAM map have any sort of Option to limit you random Choices, i collect champions and there are some i just dont really wanna roll in ARAM, This being a gamemode i can que up for i wonder how serious it will be played once it goes live for those of us with 30+ champions and rolling champions we dont like to play, feels if this mode is gonna be taken serious there would be a top 10 or someway for you to cancel champions you dont want,I'm sure this mode will be fun no doubt, but in terms of competitiveness how deep can it get without being able to make your own pick, i understand this is a popular custom game and thats cool but guys play this to pass time from there que dodge where with this mode being a game mode wont happen anymore so i hope there are some type of plans for maybe a blind pick que or a way to limit your options of randoms(like pick a top 10 or top 5)

this is for fun i dont think so, imagine a ARAM tourney where one team gets alot of support and the other team rolls bruisers bet this can get real lopsided and your be at the mercy of the dice. imagine a golf tourney where they roll a coin to see who tee closer to the hole, would be fun if it was a golf weekend but a tourney? nah get random out of here

Just wondering but would it be possable to have ARAM as a ranked format. I understand its a Just For Fun map but to be able to test how players adapt to the teams that they are facing and the selected champions that they are using could make a more-so interesting match.

Thank you,, we really want to bring more life\animation to the maps that are attached to game events. You should see quite a few things collapsing in coming updates

The first time I saw the statue on the southeastern side of the bridge completely crumble and fall off into the abyss below, I just stopped playing and stared in awe.

JOB WELL DONE GUYS, JOB WELL DONE

I think Valor should be on the map in the same way Swain's bird shows up on The Crystal Scar. Because you know Quinn is in Freljord right now lore wise.

I'm getting the same feeling of fatigue that I used to get with the winter SR map. Is there any chance that'll be fixed with these new iterations?
