I know you are all busy basically creating a whole new lore of this game from scratch but I would be really happy if some of you Rioters saw this idea that I am about to propose.
So by now we all know that the Institute of War and the Summoners we all knew are not part of the current lore Riot is in the process of creating, developing, building or however would you call it. A bold and somehow controversial step from Riot, one that might still be salvaged on some levels. The idea Im proposing has the intention of pleasing both the fans and you, the developers, in one go.

What if we still had summoners in the world of Runeterra, but these new Summoners are like wizardy-geeky versions of us (the players) in that setting. They would still play …
Building a Sport: The Design Philosophy of League of Legends
This morning at GDC (Game Developers Conference), I had the pleasure to attend a talk by Frank Lantz (NYU Game Center) and Ryan Scott (Lead Game Designer). This is the first year that GDC has hosted an eSports summit and what a great way to kick it off, with perhaps the most popular PC game at the moment; League of Legends. Frank was conducting a casual interview with Ryan and brought up some interesting questions and points of interest. Below, you can find some takeaways/notes from the talk and be sure to leave any feedback in the comments below. It should be noted, that Ryan is answering these questions and I'm just paraphrasing.
What is the process for testing changes to champion…

Alright so after the first attempt we got 2/3 decided. Results and previous discussion you can see at Forum:Item Recipe Changes. Now, since previous format produced inconclusive results to a second question we decided to go back to regular type of voting we have been using. So, drum roll...
For complex items that that have a recipe that consists of multiple components. When one of the component items experiences a cost change, the affected items that use the modified item as part of their recipe will have the total cost affected due to the change. Should this type of change be noted as part of the item changes history? If yes, which format type would you prefer?Read more >
Example: recently heart of gold cost has decreased due to recipe change. Because…
I found the news again in PC Gamer, and I thought I could share it with the Wiki community.
A duo of talented Perth programmers have released an unofficial replay tool for League of Legends.
Matt and Cam are Perth-based programmers who got impatient waiting for Riot Games to release an official replay program. They put the tool together in three weeks after waiting two years for Riot Games to produce their own. Seeing as the tool doesn’t directly interface with the League of Legends’ client, Riot are currently removing links on their forums as they decide what course to take.
Players no longer have to rely on the old resource intensive method of video recording their session, but can instead record network traffic and re-create it afterwards.…

Last month, we revealed three upcoming LoL champions in our magazine. The first, Caitlyn, has already hit live servers and the second was just announced with no details last night! These champions are unlike anything you’ve seen before, and now that the issue that they’re revealed in (US, March 2011) is on newsstands, we’re showing ‘em off online. Read on for artwork, and all of the details we have on their abilities, roles, and backstories.
We flew to Riot Games’ offices in late December to play hands-on with works-in-progress champions (read about our experiences playing and discussing champion balance with the devs) way before their release, and compil…

New patch time (nu pach tim), noun: a joyous occasion when a new champion, new skins, and other awesomeness are introduced into the League of Legends: Hey summoners, it’s about new patch time again!
- New Skins
- Someone get that yordle a razor! is looking a little on the scruffy side, but with a beard that majestic, he doesn’t seem to mind. Garen’s got some new digs too.

Our friends over at PC Gamer approached us and asked if they could feature League of Legends in their November issue.
