Riot Games, the developers of the widely acclaimed video game, League of Legends, have maintained their stance about the future of the 'Arena Mode' in the game during an interaction in a Q&A session. Despite the prevalent worry amongst the gaming fraternity about the mode being ousted permanently, the developers have assured them that it will only be on hold temporarily, before inevitably resuming.
Responding to several queries about the future of the game, the developers clarified their intent to take a 'pause' instead of a 'stop'. This pause, they mentioned, is essential for adjusting and refining the gaming mode to suit the continuously evolving dynamics of online gaming. They acknowledged that their passionate gamers might find this rest period a bit unsettling.
Emphasizing the spirit of evolution and change in the gaming world, they said, 'Just remember, Teamfight Tactics (TFT) didn't exist two years ago, and look at how far we've come. Same goes for modes like URF (Ultra Rapid Fire), ARAM (All Random All Mid) and Nexus Blitz.'
While admitting they are 'resting' some of the game modes right now, Riot Games reassured their community that every game mode has a place in the League of Legends universe. Often, these modes need to be paused so that necessary adjustments can be made to fit the changing League of Legends landscape, ensuring each version of the game is as entertaining and dynamic as possible.
In the Q&A session, they further impressed upon their commitment to keep listening and making alterations to the game. 'We will always be finding new ways to improve the game and this step is a part of it,' they concluded.
This assurance from Riot Games will undoubtedly pacify the worries of League of Legends' players who were concerned about the future of their favourite game modes. Going by the past record of Riot Games, the temporary suspension of the Arena mode can be seen as a positive step towards enhancing the overall gaming experience.
