Riot has releases a mid-year dev update for Legends of Runeterra. It goes into where we're currently at with the game and what's up next. Let's dive into the key points.
- They are thinking a lot about how to keep players excited moving forward.
- They learned that Path of Champions is already enjoyable the way it is.
- Focus is on new systems like Monthly Challenges.
- We can expect more endgame for the mode.
- Runeterra will focus on both PVE and PVP instead of only one of the two.
- There has been a lot of positive response in how players compete in PVP.
- More partnerships with the community can be expected for competitive Runeterra.
- Card balance is very important to players and that will remain a priority.
- Boards, Guardians, and Voicelines haven't had as many updates lately.
- It has become more difficult to provide that content with a smaller team; Striking balance is important.
- Older cosmetic content that was available in passes will be coming to a "personal shop".
- No plans right now for a global server shard. They know people want cross-shard play back.
Additionally, we have confirmation from Game Director, Dave Guskin, on what we can expect before the end of the year:
- Path of Champions endgame update.
- The successor to Expeditions.
- Another Dev Snapshot in 3-4 months.
Additionally, there is an AMA taking place right now on reddit. We'll provide a recap after it concludes. You can watch today's dev snapshot below.
