Earlier this year, Riot first teased the sneak peek of the client’s new UI design — that according to Riot should clean up some of the old and untouched styles.

Now, Riot has officially shared the new lobby design that should be hitting PBE soon.

In the new Lobby, it showcases all the new things the Challenges provide. The icon is still the main focus of the screen, however, the ranked border is reforged into Ranked Crests. Similar to the current lobby, players will still be able to swap between Ranked and level borders.

Summoner names are still in the same spot but this time, Riot has added a new thing called “Titles” under the name. These titles can be earned through leveling certain challenges to specific tiers, and players will be free to choose between any title.
