New Match History in LoL

With League of Legends (LoL) becoming a more and more competitive game, it is only natural that the stale 10 game match history tab will be revamped to give players a more competitive edge.

The new match history is currently in alpha and will be rolled out in Brazil first, moving over to the rest of the regions once all testing in has been concluded and it is ready for the beta phase.

During the alpha phase, things such as the server load along with how players use the new match history will be tested so that Riot Games can refine the way the match history is displayed.

According to Riot MattEnth, “our goal is to deliver robust, intricate details about your previous matches in an accessible, intuitive interface that allows you to share game histories with your friends. We’re making more of your games visible, not just your last 10. We’re expanding the end-of-game information, using graphs and heat maps to display dragon kills, gold-per-minute, death locations and more. And now you can share links to your match history across all of your favourite social channels.”

The current thoughts when it comes to who can see your match history will be as follows:

  • All ranked games for the current season are visible
  • Normal games will be visible if you are friends with the Summoner
  • Custom games are only visible to yourself

Knowing your opposition is becoming more and more important the longer the LoL is a supported game in the Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL). Most teams have to try and find their opponents through websites such as LoLKing and it can sometimes be a really futile exercise. With at least one name handy, you can go and check out the entire teams’ ranked and solo queue histories to make sure that you are choosing the correct bans and compositions to give you the best chance at winning the match.

It is always important to know what to ban and who to pick against an opponent if you are trying to do well competitively and this change to the match history will give Summoners that ability.
