LoL: Aurelion Sol rework announced
You might think it’s not that far away, but it’s now been six years since Aurelion Sol landed in League of Legends. The dragon promised by Riot Games and expected for years has taken over from the well-known and canceled Ao Shin to become the Star Forger. A character capable of submitting to his will even that which transcends human knowledge. The most powerful being according to Lore never managed to find its place in Summoner’s Rift.
An unpopular champion
Doing a quick look at this dragon’s stats, the truth is that he’s never been a bad champion when it comes to performance. However, he has a flat electrocardiogram in terms of player interest. In each of the lists we’ve compiled to review the less popular champions, he’s grabbed the top spots and celebrated his birthday as lonely as ever. Based on all rankings, he is only picked in 0.5% of games. Skarner, who was chosen to receive a rework, is the only less popular and the difference is 0.04%. A shame when you know that he is one of the champions whose exit purchase rate was one of the highest.
It is therefore not without surprise that Riot Games has decided to make a major update to the Star Forger.
The studio returned to the reasons for its failure: “Unfortunately, its gameplay didn’t prove to live up to those ambitions, and most of you gave it up after a few games. Its popularity plummeted, becoming one of the most Weaknesses in the game, and it’s stayed that way ever since. the list.”
Over the seasons, the studio has tried to make some changes to the Dragon, but still without success. Riot Games has therefore come to the conclusion that the best way to help it would be to start its gameplay from scratch..
The champion’s kit will be restarted from maintaining the model, theme and story. Aurelion Sol will be the first to receive an MGC (a comprehensive gameplay update), and if the result is satisfactory to players, the studio will tackle other champions that fall into these categories in the future.
The dragon side highlighted
“We want to emphasize the dragon side, as we feel that right now that aspect of him is not reflected enough. stars will be both spectacular to see and intuitive to play. While there may still be changes, we plan to get this new, reworked Star Dragon into your hands towards the end of the year. We really hope it will live up to the image you had of him many moons ago.”
The studio has not revealed a possible release date for this update. While Udyr’s revamp will soon be available in the rift, Skarner’s will have to wait. We can therefore assume that the Aurelion Sol 2.0 will be released after the Guardian of the Spirits.
It has now been 2 months since Renata Glasc arrived in League of Legends, and the new champion, the famous Void jungler, should soon be revealed. A well-known Youtuber already claims to know the character that will follow him: an ADC without range, and very similar to Yasuo.
