Riot outlines League of Legends Season 4 gameplay changes

Riot has began outlining League of Legends gameplay changes that will be expected before the start of Season 4, according to the game's Reddit forum.

The post, the first in the series to discuss the changes, goes over vision such as how sight-granting Wards will be overhauled and the addition of free trinket abilities.

"In terms of our overarching goal: we want to add more gameplay with vision and how vision control works for everyone in this new season," Xelnath wrote. "We think the best way to do that is by diversifying responsibility. Looking at Season 3, standard competitive support play involved buying minimal items in order to spend the majority of a player's income on wards and vision control. More gold = more wards. If a team's support was unable to fulfill that role, or fell behind their opponent, the entire team suffered."

The changes will be introduced after Season 3, which concludes on Nov 11. The series of post will be posted on the League of Legends Reddit forum over the next week.
