Preseason 2022 - League of Legends Challenges

Riot have set themselves following goals. And the challenge system should play an important role:

  • Players can track their general mastery and investment in League of Legends
  • Players can visualize and compare a variety of League accomplishments
  • Players have many different types of challenges and accomplishments to progress and strive towards

Riot is well aware, that not every players plays League of Legends just to rank up or show off with their division. There are other brackets aswell, aye? The challenges will be aiming at all game modes and offer options to individualize even more. Everyone loves to compare themself. It is amazing to see if you're better than your friends, isn't it? That's what the Season 12 challenges are for. In the official thread Riot games stated it this way:

Not much of a Ranked player, but love collecting skins and champions? Are you amazing at CSing, but leave the kills to teammates? Or maybe you're known for being the ultimate skillshot dodger? Challenges let you personalize and show off the exact type of player you are.

We love the idea behind the challenges. Our reasons to play league couldn't be more different.ood idea and Riot creates more possibilities to keep the community happy and busy in a simple way. The profile becomes more and more personalized, and hardly one will be the same as another. In addition, every player gets the feeling of being unique.

Here's a first glimps at one of the challenges:
