A pair of ne’erdowells are putting the squeeze on League of Legends. In the dead of night, they broke into the store and stole Hippalus’ most prized possessions (he really loves his socks). The two best detectives in the history of detecting are on the case but, to prevent further chaos, we’re giving in to their demands. These are dark days in League… kind of.
We set a goal of ensuring that the update to Summoner’s Rift performs at least as well as current SR on every player’s machine. We’ve continued to work on optimization since announcing the update, and want to take some time now to discuss the latest details with you.
Our goal was to create a style independent of a particular time or place that retains the vibe of Summoner's Rift. This means improving the style, cohesion & fidelity of the art without being held back by technological constraints. Finally, the various aspects of the art style must be aimed at clarifying gameplay to truly give players a more meaningful and immersive experience while playing League.
