Video games developer and publisher, Riot Games, is preparing to roll out a new League of Legends map, which aims to replicate all-random, all-mid (ARAM), a sub-genre of ordinary games created by players.
Proving Grounds, as the new map is called, has already been released on League of Legends’ public BETA server for testing. Players of the League of Legends can expect the new map to fully available on the main servers in an upcoming patch.
Riot designer Brackhar revealed that the developer had plans to release the new map with the previous patch on 20th of June, but had to postpone it due to some technical problem.
On the company’s official forum, Brackhar wrote, “Very late in the cycle some concerns with platform stability arose, so we’re going to delay turning it on for a few days to iron that out.”
The designer stressed that the developer would surely ship the chattels for the Proving Grounds custom game mode with the upcoming patch.
Proving Grounds will not offer a new game mode; rather it will allow players to choose in custom games. Players will not be able to choose champions as normal either in blind or in draft picks, but they will also be able to make use of the all-random mode to recreate ARAM battles.
