Incredibly interesting article for anyone wondering how the Riot devs work to keep the game’s huge champion roster in balance
Here is a video from a youtuber I follow who talks about this subject.
I highly recommend watching him for all you league players. Granted however he is from EU so he might have different insights into how the meta works.
I find the regional differences in play style and the meta so fascinating!
I haven’t watched any LEC yet this season, so I am not sure what the meta is there right now, but I know from watching last year that Europe plays league differently from say Korea or China. (I find the more aggressive play in those leagues more exciting, tbh.) NA teams play more aggressively as well, but in general, they’re not on the same level as the European, Korean, and Chinese teams.
Update with balancing for new champs.
Many deets on the actual framework Riot uses to achieve balance in the game – fascinating!
