Riot Games’ CCG Legends of Runeterra appears to be going over pretty well. We can leap to that conclusion with the help of a tweet from the studio, which lauded 180M monthly players in the month of October – a new high mark in concurrency for the game.
In terms of updates, players of Runeterra got one a couple of weeks ago, which kicked off the Between the Worlds ranked season and made some card changes. On the subject of card changes, the latest patch notes offered a general strategy for how the devs will be handling card balancing.
“Moving forward, expect to see regularly-occurring scheduled card updates targeted towards impacting the meta, nerfing clear overperformers, buffing underperformers, and generally improving deck diversity. These updates will be staggered in between expansion releases.”
In the meantime, the game is enjoying lots of apparent players, a launch of the Beyond the Bandlewood expansion, and the upcoming League of Legends animated series Arcane, which incidentally got its final trailer yesterday.
Thank you to our global community for helping Runeterra reach new heights! 180 million players in October and still growing! pic.twitter.com/7w9goYBeBM
