As part of its ongoing pre-season changes, Riot have revealed some of the new Levelling and reward changes that are coming to League of Legends. Along with getting rid of the level 30 cap, they are getting rid of IP and merging it with the newer ‘blue essence’ currency.
Get up to speed with League of Legends patch 7.18, ahead of Worlds.
This currency and levelling change mainly comes out of Riot’s decision to finally make runes free, a desire to lessen the grind for champions, and wanting to give veteran players something to do with their mountain of IP that’s just gathering dust. Rather than just gaining a certain amount of IP at the end of each game, players will receive a capsule.
