It's about time! Riot Games has added promotion for Legends of Runeterra inside of the League of Legends client. 

Too little too late? With Legends of Runeterra now being a part of League Studios after they have decided to stop focusing on the PVP side of the game and fully embracing PVE with the Path of Champions, it will be interesting to see what a larger audience for the game will mean. If, and it's a major if, Riot can manage to build up a strong playerbase for the game with it being right in everyone's face when they are trying to hop into a game on Summoner's Rift, revisiting PVP is always possible.

With that said, not all card games need to have a PVP focus; Strategy in itself is fun! Riot certainly doesn't have any plans for new sets in the short-term though with their recent announcemcents after the lastest expansion, Dreamlit Paths, was launched which indicates that we'll just see card rotations every few months as they roll over new ranked gameplay seasons. Of course, if they see an increase in demand for PVP and people are playing it consistently over the next few seasons, it wouldn't surprise us to see more resources go into adding new cards to the game, even if Path of Champions ends up remaining the major focus.

The real question is, how long until Legends of Runeterra just becomes a true part of the League client, much like Teamfight Tactics is today? Probably won't happen due to different engines powering them, it would require a major UI overhaul, but it sure would be interesting! It would make the League client more of a games platform than Blizzard's Hearthstone tried to do, with Hearthstone instead removing new types of games like Duels and stopping development entirely on Mercenaries.
