Admitting Sett, Aphelios, Senna as ‘defective products’, Riot assures the upcoming new champion will be more balanced.

With a MOBA game like League of Legends, every character or champion in the game needs a certain characteristic for gamers to remember about, possibly from the skill set, name or origin of that character. A champion is called a balance when he or she has a winning ratio, a moderate pick and ban rate, and a set of skills that have a particular specialty, above all, with clear strengths and weaknesses.

Orianna is an example of a balanced champion

In the past few years, however, the balanced generals of Riot Games I just count on my fingers. The latest we have the trio Sett, Aphelios, Senna have just launched and immediately proved their “almighty”. They can do things that other characters in the same position can’t do (heal, hide from Senna or control long-range with Aphelios) or outperform all colleagues (Sett’s skill set).

Although it is also Riot’s product, they must admit that it is a defect product and commits to gamers that such overwhelming new generals will not be designed anymore. Riot Mark Yetter, the leader of League of Legends design, spoke out about this.

Riot Mark Yetter: “

Balance new generals launched

As I mentioned earlier, one of the things we want to improve in the next few months is the new arrival balance. Especially, we don’t want new champions to cover the meta game or people feel that they have to choose new champions if they want to win.

Last year, our strategy was to give players the freedom to explore new generals when they are newly launched and not rush to nerf new champions. This will make it easier to get to know your new champion, but we think the negative results are a lot. Simply put, the average player can get used to the new champion too, the better players take advantage of their overwhelming power to master the meta game.

We will focus on two main ways to upgrade the process of new generals:

Launch a new champion with the goal of a long-term balance

If we do it well, we can let that champion balance every month, even every year, without overdoing it (Kayn and Warwick do it again).

Regarding the win rate, you will see the new generals start with a low win rate and gradually rise to the equilibrium level when gamers master them. I wouldn’t be surprised when we see that champions only have 44% win rates but can’t buff, give them time.

Quicker and more powerful editing

In the event that a new champion or remake makes that character too strong, we will try to edit it faster with more comprehensive nerfs.

We have to admit, Sett, Aphelios, Senna are so buggy and we have to nerf these champions in a row. If I could turn back time, I would nerf them sooner.

It is worth noting that we still rely on nerfs or buffs even after launching a new character. We can only play about 1000 matches during the design process, while this number can be 10 times higher and we will gather a lot of information in the first few days after it reaches gamers. . Thank you everyone for playing League of Legends, good luck to everyone at home. “

Perhaps we do not need to say too much to the “cancer” of the trio Sett, Aphelios, Senna anymore. Even at the moment, these champions are still very strong, and it is understandable to nerf them in the future. More importantly, what Riot Games promised about new champions, the original characters may be weak but then will balance when gamers gradually get used.

Currently, the Riot side has not confirmed what their generals are, only know that the next remake project called Volibear is very close to us already. In a list of outfits a few days ago, they learned that the two new generals would most likely be Faye (Akali’s sister) and Yone (Yasuo’s brother). Whatever the new champion, we can hope that they will be interesting to use and not as bad as Riot promised.
