Latest League of Legends features big champion and jungle changes

The 3.10 patch for League of Legends changes Elise, Twisted Fate, and Master Yi, adds a new item, and modifies the jungle.

League of Legends developer Riot has detailed its intended changes to League of Legends in its upcoming 3.10 patch.

The patch includes balance changes to Ashe, Fiddlesticks, Fizz, Karthus, Malzahar, Nami, Poppy, Ryze, Thresh, Udyr, Vayne, Warwick, and Zac, and features major changes to Elise, Twisted Fate, and Master Yi.

The patch also makes changes to magic resistance items, including the removal of Runic Bulwark and the addition of a new item, Spectre's Cowl.

Riot has also continued its changes to the jungle in Summoner's Rift, with all camps outside of the buff camps spawning much later in the game--the wraiths, wolves, and golems now spawn at 2:05 as opposed to 1:55.

Explaining the jungle changes, Riot says, "Our first jungle modifications in 3.8 were not quite enough to enact the changes we wanted, so we're pushing spawn timers even further to finish the job while fixing some other unintended side effects."

"Junglers could completely cripple their enemy team counterparts--especially early on--without fully committing to confrontation by smiting the buff and escaping, or killing their opponent with the immediate level advantage. We like the importance of aggressive early game invades, but want to make sure there's an appropriate amount of risk involved."

The full patch notes for League of Legends patch 3.10 can be read on Riot's site.

Why is this here? like 2 days after the patch. It could have some use if it was info at least 1 week before the patch (which most people interested know like 1 month ahead).

I don't know, I don't usually complain like this, but I just felt like doing so in this article.

I just don't understand why this is even on gamespot, there have been plenty of other patches that had a much more significant impact to the game and they choose this one? Stop trying to hop onto the e-sports band wagon, gamespot.

@somatzu I remember when gangplank was the only champion that could deny a creep,made him so unique,but then the retards thought it was too OP and removed it.I used to kill annies tibbers and malzas voidling :D

@quickshooterMk2 The only micro transactions involved are skins... It always pisses me off when people crap on League because they act like you can pay to win. You can't. Runes aren't even available through money, and all champions can be bought by just playing the game. Other than that, the game is more colorful, easier to look at, it feels like it plays more smoothly and not as stiff. There are other reasons, but in the end, I just have had a lot more fun playing LoL than I did during my time on Dota 2.

@quickshooterMk2 lol is easier than dota 2(cuz u cant deny units or towers)and u have a sense of progress you get "ip" after every game  to buy new champions ,and the ranked/ladder sistem (witch dota 2 does not have=u get bored quick)

@quickshooterMk2 Dota 2 has been a beta for like 2 years.  It's tough to draw a huge community when your game technically isn't released.  And the original Dota is a bit too old for a lot of people to get into.  

League of Legends beat Dota 2 to the punch, basically.

Because it is news.... You can't have console announcements every day

Also if you don't consider it news why even click in the article at all?

@Gosha14 @somatzu Thats why I stopped playing lol, they change everything thinking on the new players and end up taking away all what makes unique every champion.

@MusclesJAM @quickshooterMk2 

i guess dota 1 is a bit old now (and yet i play every week) 

i would like to go to dota 2 but the heroes design is atrocious (mainly the monster heroes, they look like crap) 

dota 2 wasn't much of a beta really, the game gave vetrean players a shitload of game keys to share it with Peoples 

but Dota 1 is still the best for me, on void servers that is.

@quickshooterMk2 @MusclesJAM  Personally I like both.  They can easily both exist without harming each others success.  However, I think another factor of whether or not is experiences.  I mean getting into dota for me was pretty difficult; almost always met the worst raging teens that always complained because they had more time to play than I did.  However, in LoL, I didn't get that even though it took me roughly the same amount of time to learn both games.  Pretty much it is still luck since it comes down to the luck of what kind of people you meet because I also know others that had the opposite experiences from what I had.

@MusclesJAM @quickshooterMk2 

couldn't say it better myself 

when someone tried and get good on one Moba it's impossable to go to a new one 

and free2play is one practice i extremly hate 

i mean i wouldn't mind paying full price 50$ for a game that you can customize your character off the bat so they won't look like utter shit 

but valve went the Free2Play route and overall 

the game is practicly the same, just different in game stores and layout 

overall the first Dota still had it's charm of sentinal vs the scrouge and the heroes there were pretty balanced (besides abbadon, his ulti is just absurdly OP) 

but yeah, because LoL is an older game, it got a bigger fanbase for it

@quickshooterMk2 @MusclesJAM Yea, free-to-play games are a strange beast.  I think part of success is pure luck.  Much like a good AD Carry,  there is the potential to snowball.  Once the install base gets to a certain point, it kind of spreads like wildfire.  

I mean, think of the popular games on android right now.  Are they that much better than some other free to play games on android that have <1000 downloads?  Doubt it.  They just got popular through word of mouth.

It helps that the MOBA genre is incredibly addictive and has a steep learning curve.  Once you are hooked on a game, you don't want to stop playing it, and you are hesitant to start all over again on a new MOBA that you are unfamiliar with.

@travo0159 @SirNormanislost a billion hours of gameplay a month last time I checked the figures a few months a go

to put that into perspective halo has had 2billion hours of gameplay across all its games since 2007
