Runes and Masteries and Honor update
Recently, we’ve started to witness a major change in the League of Legend’s gaming system – the 10 ban for the Pros followed by the 10 ban system for us The Casuals . In the recent development update for the VideoSeries “Riot Pls”, the League of Legend’s Lead Producer Joseph “New001” Tung announces, on behalf of the league dev team, a huge overhaul of the rune and mastery system, a new Honor system and something about the Voice Chat Option.
RUNES AND MASTERIES
The Runes and Masteries system changes, with the code name “Runes Reforged”, will come to us for this November’s Pre-Season. Runes Reforged will bring a set of new and improved Keystone runes. These will be way more powerful than the current ones. You will also be able to augment them with major and minor runes.
In addition, the Runes will be free of charge. When the new system rolls out, Riot is planning to “take care” of players who spend a bunch of IP through the years.
Another major change lies in the Honor System. The new Honor system will be level-based and will be tied to the rewards system, which will give rewards based on the honor level. The rewards will range from key fragments to exclusive content. The way the Honor will be distributed is that after the nexus explodes there will be a pop-up lining your 4 other teammates, but you will be able to honor only one of them. This system will be in PBE this week and will probably be released with patch 7.13.
The League Devs team are also discussing the future possibility of a Voice Chat. This gives everyone hope that the game may actually have that in the future.
