“The Recommended Page, has been completely remade to better support our new recommendation system,” Mark Yetter on the new item shop. “This system will take into account a full tree of what your champion could build based on high level player data and serve up viable item choices.”

The shop will show all the items your current champion can possibly build. The shop engine is made in a way where it will analyze the enemy team’s stats during the game like damage done, CC, healing, resistances, and more. And based on the matchup it will recommend the items you should be building.

Additionally, there will some other sorting options as well. There will be a series of tabs that will allow players to filter items by the classes, for example, if you’re a Tank, everything you need is probably inside the Tank tab. Moreover, from the preseason League players will be able to separate items by their rarity.

Furthermore, there will be a Popular filter tab that will let you use the data from the recommendation system to view only the items your character most commonly builds.

All these new changes will be available from the season 11 preseason which is expected to hit the PBE in less than two weeks.
