So as we all see now after about 3,000 petition signature, riot has finally responded. With this number of requests, they did the only logical thing they could do and said we're not changing anything back.
As for the fate of old TT, right now we have no plans to add it back into custom games. we wanted to make sure that we don't split the focus of our players for each game type. For the same reason we probably won't ever create a 5v5 map that's really similar to Summoner's Rift, we didn't want to split the TT community between two maps. There's really no winner in that scenario, as there are two maps to support, two metas to maintain, and overall a really small delta between the two. We'd rather have you and our teams focused on one, working together to make it great as opposed to two, having neither of them living up to their full potential. If competitive TT is also going to take off, having two maps, even in custom games, is detrimental.
Let's be clear though, this is still Twisted Treeline. It is a bit different and sometimes change can be a little disruptive, but when we took a look at what we had on our hands after thousands of playtests, we wanted to release the new TT to you and get feedback as part of our Beta process. That's still ongoing, and we're going to continue to listen to your feedback and make changes going forward, ensuring that TT has the support it deserves.
Hurray for listening to your community and caring about what we think. Should have just stopped him from creating the thread or at least posted at the beginning, "we don't care what you want, we're sticking with this anyway regardless of how many of you vote" so we didn't get so disappointed weeks later when we thought we might get some change. I'm not saying i don't understand the logic behind it, but its a poor choice.
GG GL guys, its been nice playing with all of you in the old 3's. As there is no chance of the old 3's coming back, this Summoner is finding a new game I'll miss you guys(even the trolls)
@Riot GG WP, don't expect to see me back :/ I'll find another game where i don't get the only game i play taken from me while i look the other way. You can put all the altars and speed buffs you want on this new map, but just because its a 3v3 map doesn't make it Twisted Treeline, that map holds a special place in my heart and memories.
This is now a thread to say your goodbyes.
RIP Twisted Treeline, I will miss the large majority of matches I played in you. I'll miss all of the times the enemy went for my teams nexus tower only to have me flash behind them and dash them into the fountain as Shen.
