Riot may reconsider a sandbox mode for League of Legends

You either didn't like the last answer or you didn't care then or now.
When players asked for a sandbox mode for League of Legends, Riot Games said no. This made a large number of players very vocally angry and may generally be regarded as a bad move. So when Riot was asked to reconsider based upon player feedback, the answer is a definite yes, meaning that sandbox mode may or may not come to the game but is at least back on the table for discussion again. That’s like a victory.

If you’re entertaining visions in your head of player-owned structures or absurd crafting systems, it’s important to note here that “sandbox mode” simply means an option to set up specific practice scenarios. The positive side effect for players at all levels is that you don’t need to wait for a few dozen matches to go just right for you to practice your skill at aiming a skillshot or killing the right targets. It’s a boon for players trying to get better, and while we can’t say it is happening, it’s back on the table for discussion.

Somehow I think the custom player made game mode that is part of the new DoTA client, which will now allow making scenarios of playing up to 12 v 12, may have something  to do with the rethink over at Riot.

Skyewauker Silverbourne It’s just ranked play on CSGO brings out the worse. Find a nice cozy clan server and never deal with the garbage of ELO.

I started imagining EVE-LoL hybrid and how it would be cool. Then reached “simply means an option to set up specific practice scenarios” passage :<

Silverbourne You mean what you hear about every game that breeds competition?  They bring out the worst in people for sure.  League, Dota 2 , CSGO, WoW’s arenas.  Every game’s PvP system is a complete sewage dump.

EatCandy Sorenthaz Nreff  It’s not.  But Riot stating their reasons as to why they had no plans of building a Sandbox mode was definitely throwing pro players under the bus.  ’cause pro players would heavily utilize the Sandbox mode in order to improve their mechanics, with the only other methods for that being AI, Custom, or regular soloqueue matches.  And a sandbox mode would achieve results much faster which would help competition grow and pro players to be better off.

Nreff EatCandy  Not to mention throwing the pro players under the bus isn’t exactly the best way to foster competitive growth and keep the esports side growing.
