Since League of Legends migrated their servers from L.A. to Chicago, serious gamers in Hawaii have experienced bad latency, The Outline reported today. Hawaiian gamers are disadvantaged by the lag, and reportedly, there have been no internationally-competing professional Hawaiian LoL players since the switch.
Here’s an interesting League of Legends statistic: Riot’s lead social systems designer Jeffrey “Lyte” Lin told Polygon in a story posted today that games that had a “role conflict or a position conflict in champion select” were 15% more toxic “no matter what happened in the game itself.” Glad they’re addressing that!
Out with the old, in with the new. Riot’s released a champion spotlight for Poppy 2.0, the long-awaited rework of one of League of Legends’ oldest and most outdated playable characters. She looks really neat! This probably means she’s coming into the main game in the next week or two, too.
