UPDATE 3.1 FAQ

Update 3.1 is jam-packed with awesome new content you’re sure to love: Taunt and pummel your enemies with the new dwarven brawler, Tony; challenge yourself to achieve your highest rank ever in Spring season; and, for the very first time, dominate your opponents to advance your rank on Sovereign’s Rise with 5V5 Ranked & Draft mode. You can read the full 3.1 update notes here.

GENERAL:

WHICH ITEM PATHS / ROLES / POSITIONS ARE SUITABLE FOR TONY? IS THERE ANY OFFICIAL SUGGESTION FOR US?

Tony is a bruiser. Build items with WP and CDR to dish out high damage and to spam his A and B abilities frequently. Tony is best used as a jungler: He can quickly clear camps with no effort while taking little damage thanks to his perk. His kit also makes him a great ganker.

I'M A NEW PLAYER HERE, AND I DID GET SOME BLUEPRINTS FROM THE CHESTS. BUT I AM NOW LOOKING FOR ESSENCE TO CRAFT THE SKINS. IS THERE ANY SOLUTION FOR ME AND OTHER NEW PLAYERS LIKE ME TO GET MORE ESSENCE?

Yes! You can get more Essence by completing quests.

"YOUR RANK WILL BE RESET, WITH BONUS PROGRESS GRANTED BASED ON PAST PERFORMANCE." WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

It means that you will be fully reset but will then be granted bonus progress in Spring based on your performance in the prior season. It's not the same for everyone.

WHEN RESETTING THE RANK FOR THIS SEASON, THE BONUS GRANTED IS THE SAME AS THE PAST SEASONS?

Correct.

I ACCIDENTALLY SKIPPED THE TUTORIALS BECAUSE I AM FAMILIAR WITH MOBA, BUT NOW THAT I HAVE PLAYED REAL MATCHES, THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I USUALLY PLAY. WHAT DO I DO?

The tutorial can now be played at anytime! Tap the PLAY menu and slide to the far right to access it.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT INTO LPQ, I DIDN'T DODGE, DECLINE OR AFK. CAN YOU EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT LPQ TO ME?

Learn more about the LPQ by clicking here.

I HAVE BEEN WRONGLY PLACED INTO LPQ, WHAT IMMEDIATE ACTION CAN I TAKE SO I CAN PLAY RANK AGAIN?

Once judgement has been passed, you must wait until the LPQ timer expires to play ranked again. More information can be found on this link.

"PLAYERS IN THE LOW PRIORITY QUEUE FOR BAD BEHAVIOR CAN NO LONGER PLAY IN RANKED GAME MODES UNTIL LPQ REQUIREMENTS ARE SATISFIED." DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE LPQ WILL APPLY THIS PENALTY TO ALL PLAYERS IN LPQ, OR ONLY THOSE IN THE QUEUE FOR LOW KARMA/TROLLING AND NOT DODGES/DISCONNECTIONS?

All LPQ players.

WILL THE TONY + SKIN BUNDLE FOR 1250 ICE STILL BE ACTIVE ONCE TONY IS UNLOCKABLE FOR GLORY AS WELL, OR ONLY DURING THE FIRST WEEK?

This bundle is only available during the first week. Don't miss out!

5V5:

WILL WE START 5V5 MODE AS 'UNRANKED'?

Your rank will not start from scratch. You get bonus progress based on your Winter 3V3 rank & for any casual 5V5 games you played prior to 3.1.

WILL THERE BE DIFFERENT SKILL TIERS IN 5V5? HOW CAN I TELL IF SOMEONE IS HOTNESS IN 5V5 BUT VAINGLORIOUS IN 3V3?

They are tracked separately, but the names of the skill tiers are the same for both modes. The rank shown in your friend's list will be 3V3's, but we'll likely update it in the future to show the higher of either modes. You can also see other's rank from the previous season on the loading screen (only 3V3 rank from the previous season will show).

WILL THE MATCHMAKER SPLIT SOLO QUEUES AND TEAM QUEUES?

For Casual: Any party size is acceptable. Full parties will have their own queue. For Ranked: Only parties of 1, 2, 3 or 5 are accepted into the queue. Full parties will have their own queue.

SINCE 5V5 HAS BEEN RELEASED, ARE THESE 'HERO BALANCE CHANGES' MAINLY BASED ON 5V5 OR 3V3? IS THERE ANY INFORMATION FOR US TO UNDERSTAND MORE AND DEEPLY ABOUT OUR 'HERO BALANCE CHANGES'?

Balance changes are made with both game modes in mind.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT RANKS FOR 5V5 AND 3V3?

Yes, the rank names are the same; however, there are two different progressions for 5V5 and 3V3.

CAN I CHOOSE TO NOT DISPLAY MY 'FOUNDING 5V5' BADGE?

Currently, you do not have the option to turn it off.

AM I ABLE TO SHOW OFF BOTH THE FOUNDER AND SUPPORTER BADGES IN THE LOADING SCREEN? HOW DO I TURN OFF SHOWING THE FOUNDING BADGE?

'Founding 5V5' badges will automatically appear in the loading screen. You cannot disable it at this time. 

ARE YOU GOING TO ADD 5 ROLES FOR 5V5 OR ARE YOU STICKING WITH 3?

We will not be adding five roles for 5V5.

HALCYON DAYS:

IF I MAKE A REAL-MONEY PURCHASE, FOR EXAMPLE, HALFWAY THROUGH HALCYON DAYS, DO I GET THE PREVIOUS BONUS REWARDS TOO?

If you make a purchase midway, you can claim the current reward and the reward from yesterday as well.

FOR HALCYON DAYS DAILY LOGIN REWARDS: WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM A SUPPORTER BUT ALREADY HAVE PARAGON CATHERINE AND/OR PETAL'S RARE SKIN? WILL I GET A DIFFERENT BLUEPRINT FOR LOGGING IN, OR WILL I SIMPLY GET ESSENCE FOR DUPLICATE?

You will get duplicate bonuses.

IF MY 30-DAY REAL-MONEY PURCHASE PERIOD ENDS JUST IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HALCYON DAYS EVENT, AM I STILL ELIGIBLE FOR THE REWARDS BEFORE AND AFTER? IF I DO A REAL-MONEY PURCHASE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE EVENT, WILL I BE ABLE TO REDEEM THE PAST DAYS' REWARDS AS WELL?

Once your 30-day purchase period ends you are no longer eligible to get bonus Halcyon Days rewards.
