LoL players found the perfect solution to the chaos surrounding new champion releases

Smolder, a small dragon gunner, released on January 31, 2019 League of Legends. Naturally, fans are struggling over the champion to choose who will play him, but one player has proposed a perfect solution to the chaos surrounding the release of the new champion.

In a post above LeagueIn the subreddit from January 31, user Temporary-Platypus80 suggested that Riot Games should enable a One for All game mode when a new champion releases. One for All is the most iconic one League Game mode in which two teams of five play only one respective champion. For example, while the red team can pick Kai’Sa, the blue side player can pick Volibear, and all players must play those champions. While this mode is commonly played on Summoner’s Rift, the usual jungle and laning rules don’t really apply. Instead, it’s pure chaos and that’s why it’s so fun. There are still objectives, monsters, and turrets, but you can play regular Summoner’s Rift.

This would be perfect for new champion releases, especially when a lot of players are trying to play the new champions. This is always the case. Best of all, this would be a great way to learn the ins and outs of a new champion.

When Senna first came out, I could barely play her for two to three weeks because she was banned or picked before it was my turn. With the launch of One for All, all players interested in the new champion will have the opportunity to test it out. If this becomes Riot’s practice, your chances of playing the new champion may be higher, especially since a lot of players will flock to this mode. Hopefully Riot will look into this and the next champion launch, solo laner Vastaya, will allow us to play it in One for All.
