Riot Games updates the League of Legends website to streamline navigation.
Riot Games, the developer and producer of the legendarily popular MOBA, League of Legends has decided that its current website will no longer cut it when it comes to delivering content to its followers. Following several months of testing, the developers have decided that their new website is ready to be released to the public, and will go live this coming week.
League of Legends files the sharp corners off of the notorious MOBA genre into something that's both approachable, yet challenging. Persistant character development lets you develop your strategies over time and build up your summoner profile, while runes can grant you the edge. The community is both highly competitive, yet well-policed. Think you have what it takes to compete in the League of Legends?
League of Legends last had a major website update during Season 1, in 2010. In the three years since, LoL has changed dramatically, as have the needs of its users. In its announcement, Riot said, "...we wanted to build a new site capable of supporting the wider range of content we're releasing these days."
The major changes to the website include streamlined navigation, a focused design, and a special portal to host community content. There is also a special section in which fans can watch League of Legends streams and tournaments, to help players keep up with their favorite eSports teams.
The new website is just a flourish of the new content that is coming to League of Legends regularly. In addition to receiving official US recognition as a professional sport, League of Legends has had a number of excellent content releases recently, including a new legendary skin for Udyr, the game has even more great content on the way.
