Any game where teamwork is required, eventually becomes target for trolls and those players make it hard to lead a successful team. Most popular games face that same problem, and Riot might have found a clever solution. Company’s biggest online game, League of Legends, got a new feature which went into live beta this week. Team Builder significantly improves team communication and expectations even before the game even starts.
So far, the most prestigious mode of League of Legends, Ranked, always spawned trolls who would mess with player’s attempt to earn higher ranks and points. Consecutive wins could get you high on ranks, but losing a match sends you right back down. Emotions could get out of hand with stakes as high as those in Ranked mode.
To enter the Ranked, all you have to do is hit the Play button and you will get team up with four other members. The team captain is the player with highest rank and they decides the bans where players take turns choosing their champions in alternating order. This can cause a lot of headache if your team captain bans out your favourite champion, or if a team member picks a position you wanted to play. Negativity is often present even before the match starts.
In an attempt to fix those issues, Team Builder was developed. It allows players to select their champion and position before pressing the Play button, then feature puts them into a pool and captains draft for their desired team. If you want to be a captain, you can enter for that position and choose your team members from a pool. All members within a team normally have similar set of skills.
This clever solution should stop trolling situations such as those where players intentionally keep getting killed by another team, if they weren’t able to choose their favourite champion or got a position they don’t fancy. Along with being able to play in a way you want, players get to chat where and discuss anything before the match starts.
Players have welcomed the new League of Legends feature, and who wouldn’t? No more trolls or huge drama is what every game needs. It would make any title a lot more fun.
