'League Of Legends' Reveals Season Start 2024 Gameplay Changes - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2023 @ 6:21 p.m. PST

League Of Legends is a session-based online multiplayer game that combines elements of RPG and RTS genres with addictive battle action where rival teams compete against one another for victory on highly stylized battlefields and landscapes.

After an age of warfare, the superpowers of the land of Valoran have come together to form a governing body that will settle all disputes behind the closed doors of the Institute of War. Their task is a noble one — to lift the impossible weight of bloody war off the shoulders of the world and place it upon a select few — The League of Legends. On the Fields of Justice, legendary Champions forge alliances and resolve their differences in battle arenas. In the League there is one rule that reigns over all else: Winner rules all.

In League of Legends, players take on the role of a persistent Summoner avatar that gazes upon the battlefield from above and influences battles by taking command of a chosen Champion. During each online multiplayer play session, gamers will choose one of dozens of unique Champions wielding diverse skills and abilities, and engage in fast-paced team-oriented combat to bring their foes to ruin. Champions will gain levels, items, and abilities that enable them to slay their opponents and augment the strength of their allies by battling with enemy minions, foul beasts, deadly turrets and enemy Champions. Players also advance their Summoner’s rank and power to gain new abilities and items, assisting their Champions in battle.

League of Legends emphasizes team-oriented gameplay and players must work together in order to defeat the opposing team. Players will be able to communicate easily through in-game lounges and chat rooms, and forums will act as a conversational hub for a wide variety of discussions amongst community members. League of Legends will feature custom-built multiplayer support including matchmaking, stat tracking, clan support, anti-cheat systems, dedicated in-game ladders and Leaverbuster technology. In addition to extensive multiplayer features, League of Legends will include a single-player mode where players can learn how to play and practice new strategies by engaging robust Bot-AI.

The League of Legends team today shed light on gameplay changes coming as a part of Season Start 2024. The gameplay changes will go live on PBE today for players to explore ahead of the official start of Season 2024 at the beginning of the calendar year.

Things will be in a pretty early state when you first see them, so expect changes to things like visuals, item names, effect names, stat values, and more as we continue to refine these items while they’re on PBE. Barring massive table-flips, this preview page won't be updated after publishing. Fear not though, when the 14.1 patch notes come out and the changes go live in January they'll have all the final details as usual.

Disclaimer: While quite a few of these changes are Void-related, we wanted to let you all know that there will not be a Void event in 2024.

Gameplay Changes

Void Changes

Voidgrubs and Voidmites

We’ve got some brand new residents moving into the Baron pit this season: the Voidgrubs. They are Voidborn beasties that will be taking the place of the first Rift Herald of each game before despawning at 14 minutes to make room for Rift Herald. Three Voidgrubs will spawn at 5 minutes, each with its own respawn timer of 4 minutes, and a maximum of six can spawn in a single game.

When aggroed each Voidgrub will unleash a swarm of Voidmites to attack their enemies. Should you manage to take down some Voidgrubs your entire team will earn the Hunger of the Void buff which will give the user damage over time bonus damage to structures. This buff stacks based on the amount of Voidgrubs you manage to take down and, when you manage to take down 5 or 6, you’ll also periodically summon 1 or 2 Voidmites respectively to help you take down structures.

Rift Herald

Rift Herald is back and they have a brand new, Voidgrub inspired look! But Shelly’s appearance isn’t all that's changing. Now, when you crush the Eye of the Herald, Rift Herald will spawn as usual, but the user or an allied champion will be able to right-click the Herald and jump onto them, allowing the rider to steer Shelly (similar to a Sion ultimate). If you charge Herald into a turret then it will do more damage than if they charged into one uncontrolled. If you happen to run into an enemy champion then they will be damaged and knocked airborne. Once you collide with terrain or a turret the champion riding Shelly will be knocked off, going back to their usual selves.

Void Camps

As it turns out, the Void is the gift that keeps on giving in terms of 2024 updates. Having expanded its presence throughout the map, Blue Sentinel, Red Brambleback, and Rift Scuttler are looking a little… Voidier.

Once Baron Nashor emerges onto the Rift at 20 minutes, the next time Blue Sentinel and Red Brambleback respawn they will rise again as Voidborn Sentinel and Voidborn Brambleback respectively. This transformation also comes with increased durability making them harder to take down, but fret not because this extra effort is worth it! Now, once slain, Blue and Red will grant their buffs to the entire team of the player that takes them down (excluding any allies that were dead).

Similarly, after 20 minutes once Rift Scuttler rises again after being slain she will be Voidborn Scuttler. When slain, Voidborn Scuttler will send out a massive Scryer’s Bloom effect, revealing all champions and wards in a large surrounding area. Similar to Scryer’s, all wards revealed this way will be reduced to 1 HP.

Baron Nashor

Now it’s the star of Baron pit himself, Baron Nashor! In line with the visual update we’ve made to Herald, Baron himself will also be getting a fresh coat of pixel paint and wow, you’ll have to give the team a hand for coming up with this re-imagined Baron.

But a visual update isn’t the only thing Baron’s getting with the updates. He’s also getting three brand new forms: Hunting Baron leaves the pit unchanged, Territorial Baron creates a wall in front of the pit, and finally, the All-Seeing Baron closes off the front and opens up both sides creating a tunnel. These new configurations create variation in how Baron fights play out game to game.

In order to make each Baron encounter more unique we also added different attacks for each Baron variation. All-Seeing Baron opens a Void Rift that creates a damage over time zone within the new tunnel pit. Territorial Baron pulls champions near him with his handy new hands. Finally, the Hunting Baron blasts all nearby enemies with lightning from above.

Terrain Changes

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so instead of trying to read textual descriptions of the map changes allow me to visually demonstrate instead (in addition to textual descriptions).


Up in the top side we have two major changes. First, we somewhat mirrored the terrain from blue to red side making gank paths more similar and the lane trickier to gank. Second, we created a new little wall and brush combination in the middle of the river entrance.


In the jungle, the mighty jungle… new walls did arise. The biggest terrain change here is a new, wide wall directly across from the Baron and Drake pits. These should help create some safety for junglers on their own half of the map and equalize mid laners’ options to roam towards both top and bottom.


Now moving into the mid lane we’re creating more space by pushing the brush back a bit and moving one gank path further back. This should help create some more safety for immobile mid lane mages so players feel a little better when picking these types of champs.


And finally we’ve made our way down to the bot lane. The first change is similar to the top lane, we added in a small wall and pixel brush right beside it. Next up is a red side only change. We mirrored the blue tri-brush area onto the red side and opened up a new gank path beside the tower. This should help make both sides more symmetrical, eliminating any side-based advantages when it comes to gank protection and warding.

Infernal Drake Changes

Given the terrain changes we’ve introduced with this set of changes, we also need to adjust some Drakes so that they’ll play nicely with all of the new walls (or lack thereof). This includes moving a few small walls and brushes for Mountain and Ocean Drake.

However, after we spent so much time building walls across the rift we took a step back to look at Infernal’s map changes again. Now, once the Infernal Rift is locked in, Infernal Cinders will spawn around the map. Each cinder will give the champion that picked it up adaptive stats beneficial to your champion and a burst of movement speed. Upon death, champions will drop half of their cinders which can then be picked up by other enemy/allied champions. We wanted to experiment with these changes after considering player feedback about the Infernal Rift being the least interesting in terms of gameplay. Our goal is that this will help us create more interesting map states beyond just terrain changes like Hextech and Chemtech 2.0, but we’ll keep a close eye on how these changes land and how players like them.

Fist Bumps

Let’s start with one of the simpler changes. Fist bumps. That right, Riot Games (whose logo is a fist bump) added an interactive fist bump into League of Legends. All you need to do is activate the emote, wait for another team member to use the emote and then BOOM. Fist bump achieved. Queue the fireworks.

New Item Thematic Vote Results

Last month we introduced you to Go Fast With Friends, a new tank support item that speeds up allies who follow you into battle. We tallied up the votes from around the world and while the results were incredibly close, Trailblazer took the lead at 35% of the results! (Eerie Invitation got 34% and Scout's Fanfare got 31%.)

  • [NEW] Trailblazer
    • Total Cost: 2400 gold
    • Item Recipe: Winged Moonplate + Chain Vest + 800 gold
    • 250 Health
    • 40 Armor
    • 5% Movement Speed
    • Passive - Make the Path: While moving, build up to 20 bonus Movement Speed. At maximum stacks, leave a trail that raises allied champions’ Movement Speed by 15% of yours. Your next attack discharges build up Move Speed; for Melee champions at top speed, this attack also Slows the target by 50% for 1 second.

Dynamic Music

You know our cool new Void creatures? Well, the brand new visuals aren’t the only thing changing around the Baron pit with our changes. We also added in brand new music for when there is fighting around Baron or other Void objectives, so make sure you’re listening in!

Item Changes

One of the biggest changes we have coming with these gameplay changes is de-mythicing the item system. Our major goals with this change is to shift power from items into the champions themselves and to give players more flexibility with their build paths. Oh, and we removed Stopwatch and the Perfect Timing rune.

We also have an item tooltip simplification update which should help make descriptions much more digestible at a glance. Don’t worry though, you can still view the detailed tooltips with numbers, scaling, and all the other fun bits of information you’d need to see.

As a reminder, this is not an exhaustive list of all the items that have changed, but instead is a filtered list that focuses on new items and ones that had larger changes. In addition, numbers included are subject to change as we do more testing over the coming months.

Support Quests and Items

As part of the 2024 gameplay changes, all support items and quests have been combined into a single starter item to help demystify support itemization decisions. While that might sound like we’re over simplifying things, we’re also adding five upgrades for this item. Now, once your support quests have been completed, you will be able to select one of five item upgrades. Our goal was to support every champion in the role, so now you can pick whichever one feels best based on your champion, matchup, or even your playstyle.
