I don't really like change because I'm just used to it the way it is xD

But I still like the dragon/baron change a lot

Is any added functionality going to be added to the map, such as camera rotation?

Noooo, my beloved purple caster minion!!!
Waiiii????

I love the purple caster minion, the new one looks so weird! D:

Does this mean the current Summoner Icons will get changed aswell?
Or do we at least get to keep the old ones with the new ones just being added on top?

Well done. But you should make the purples jungle with different monster views. Both junglers having different types of monsters. That would be cool too.

Looks quite nice. I'm happy to see outdated aspects of this game being updated (outdated champion and now map visuals).

I'd also like to see the water react to players. If it does now, color me surprised because I've never noticed.

I want to +1 this, we are still a ways from live and that is one of several features that are on the radar.

You can tell similarities between both Dawngate and Dota 2. I have no problem with either, it's nice to see Riot finally taking queue's from other games, it's the only way they will continue to compete in the future.

Are there any lore-related changes in store for the Rift VU?
Our friend the Baron seems to be leaning on the Void side.

The Baron area definitely does feel a little purple. We made several choices like that throughout the map to help players orient themselves around major points of interest on the map, and of course Baron is a huge point of interest on the map.
