Project Bastion Event

The Project: Bastion event kicks off on May 27 and runs until June 28; which means it’ll be live across patches 11.11, 11.12, and 11.13.

The theme sees the Project alternate skin line take centre stage: “The battling factions players have met in the past must now band together against a new threat activated by the mysterious Program virus.”

Future Updates

Mark Yetter has shared recent updates on some ongoing changes for the game and champions:

  • Tank Legendary Item Options - both reducing the near mandatory status of Thornmail but also boosting a bunch of underused items like Frozen Heart and Warmogs.
  • Reducing Systemic Mobility - A new project that we're ramping up. This is going to be both addressing major mobility outliers that go too far breaking intended weaknesses (like Strikebreaker) and trimming lots of small movement speed creep across items and runes. These aren't meant to be nerfs, but we want to see the systems changes play out first.
  • Tahm Kench - Still in the works, art and final tuning are progressing nicely
  • Top agency and split pushing - Continuing the work to increase top lane agency and the viability of split pushing. Currently we have a split push focused fighter item, a split push focused tank item, and some adjustments to outer turrets to make them a bit more valuable.
  • Sona - Design direction of the Sona changes is locked, but we won't get her art done until after Tahm Kench is done.
  • Defensive Enchanter Legendary - This is still in the works, and we have some designs that are trending well, but it's behind these other projects in our priority queue so don't expect it in a patch soon.

Mark Yetter has also outlined some future projects and updates coming to LoL in 2021.

  • Overly skewed towards Pro Play
    • Champions that have pattern-level (as opposed to power level) issues that create difficulties for long-term balance
    • THey're picked frequently in professional games but have very low solo queue win rates, making it painful when we nerf them
    • These champs often display a pattern where "the more skill you have, the more you can remove the counterplay" as opposed to having difficult-to-execute combos that pros are just better at. As you might expect, at the pro level we're seeing the weaknesses mitigated too far
    • Examples here - upcoming Tahm Kench changes, Sylas changes in Season 10
  • Game health or counterplay issues at all level of play
    • These champs are often balanced (as opposed to the pro play skewed champs who end up underpowered for regular play) and even sometimes popular. However, they degrade the overall game quality because they have insufficient counterplay or promote strategies that lower the depth and interaction of other plays
    • Examples here - Aphelios (s10 range and AOE burst reductions), Akali (s9 invis under tower removal)
  • Older champs that need love
    • Often these champs have reasonable power/win rates but players just feel they aren't keeping up with the current game
    • These updates will often look to strengthen the identity of the champ and find ways that make their current power more satisfying, clear, or skill expressive
    • Examples here - upcoming Rammus changes, 11.3 Jinx changes
  • Items not hitting their goals
    • Not appealing - sometimes an item can be balanced but doesn't deliver on its fantasy in a satisfying way, so players don't buy it even in cases where it'd be good
    • Unhealthy - removing counterplay or skewing the shape of the game too far (like burst, sustain, range) are problems we want to fix. (Hextech Gunblade)
    • Unclear purpose - the item either doesn't have a clear set of circumstances where it's strong, or that circumstance is overly narrow. That makes it either generically weak, or a must-buy if tuned to be generically strong.
  • Runes not hitting their goals
    • Warping pattern - some runs can be under picked mostly because they demand too much from the player and end up feeling like "playing the rune, not the champion" (e.g. Omnistone)
    • Dominating choice - some runes ruin the choice structure by being too generically powerful for too many different types of champions. (Conqueror has run into this a few times in the past)
    • Game Health Issues - like the items, runes can undermine important gameplay. Nimbus Cloak is a recent example where it was breaking the intended weaknesses of many fighters and tank by giving them too much target access.
