Riot has begun talking about doing more work on the Champion Mastery system in League of Legends.

Most of Riot’s focus generally goes into updating League of Legends in terms of gameplay changes. Patch 13.7 is going to be the latest example of that, as a number of champion changes are hitting the Rift soon. The highlights of the changes are the buffs to Azir and nerfs to Veigar. Overall, there are quite a bit of nice changes coming gameplay-wise.

Even though those are usually the highlighted changes, Riot does a lot of other little changes in patches. In Patch 13.6, there was an announcement for an alternative game mode to Normals called Quick Play. Also, The Bystander Feedback System was also implemented to show players that the reporting system is working and punishing bad actors. This improves the player experience in League of Legends.

As Riot continues to improve systems and player satisfaction, much remains to be done. Riot Pupulasers talked about what they are looking into in terms of discovery of current systems to improve player experience. One of the things that popped up was Champion Mastery, and Riot Pupulasers mentioned them changing it at some point. Here is what we know so far.

Champion Mastery Rework

According to Pupulasers, the Riot team has begun the discovery process of ways to improve the current system. That means Riot intends to improve the system as players have raised concerns. Currently, the mastery system is simple, and anyone can achieve Mastery 7 if they grind enough.

Riot Pupulasers goes in-depth about the problem with the current system. The current system does not separate players with higher mastery points. Hence Riot is working on things behind the scenes. Nothing concrete has been revealed, so it might still be a long way out.

The ideas thrown out are stuff like Mastery for Roles or Champion Classes or extending the Mastery in a more meaningful way. All that is still in the creative process of it and will take time to materialize.

However, it is a positive sign that a developer from Riot is talking about this, and they recognize it is an issue at this point. How fast they address it is that question that is on everyone’s mind. Hopefully, with the transparency tour Riot is on, they will do more and reveal more in the coming months.
