Riot Games Admits to Failing to Meet Expectations with “Bland” League of Legends Events, Promises to Improve – Riot Games, the company that created League of Legends, recently acknowledged that their “bland” tournaments mostly fell short of community expectations. On the other hand, the company has pledged to get better moving forward, stating plans to revamp events to make them a little bit more interesting.
The information was found in a post titled League of Legends Events Are So Bland on the well-known social media site Reddit. Jordan Checkman, Senior Design Lead on Competitive Gameplay, responded to this specific concern by outlining how the company is presently working on both immediate and long-term solutions. Checkman asserts that Riot’s time and effort commitments will result in more immersive experiences, alter the way events are organised, and perhaps even introduce new game modes.

“We hear you,” Checkman pointed out. “Aware that some events do not contain the level of novelty/ excitement that they could at the moment. We are working on some short and long term investments to improve the quality of them going forward. This will involve more immersive experiences, changes to our event structures, and yes, even modes.” The designer went on to say that “I am not directly on the Moments team (they produce our events) or the Modes team (they make… the modes), but I’ve seen and played some of what they have planned and I’m pretty excited as a player.”
Daniel Leaver, a senior manager on the Moments team, later confirmed that Riot is creating some rather big content for at least one of the upcoming summer events, which is good news for the many disgruntled League of Legends players who are craving more engaging content.
“Best I can do is let you know that we’re going to continue to fight with all of our souls to make the coolest stuff we can for you all,” Checkman remarked about the matter. The designer added that “it’s going to be actions not words that earn your trust back. You can and should continue to respectfully let us know where we have and have not hit the mark.”
