League of Legends character Gangplank killed off, much to fans' dismay

Riot Games typically doesn't let League of Legends' lore directly affect its gameplay, for obvious reasons. Which is why it's so odd to see them kill off popular pirate hero Gangplank, not least because he had only just had his skills and costume updated.

As you can imagine, fans who had splashed out cash on their hero just to see him deaded were none too happy, but Riot has responded asking them to remain patient and see what happens in the next few days.

League of Legends ranked matches suspended by Riot Games following 'instant teleport bug'

Instant teleportation maybe the dream for mankind but it's causing a right fuss for League of Legends right now. Riot Games has temporary taken ranked matches offline to address the hyper-efficient Recall spell.

Whether rightly or wrongly, Riot's MOBA League of Legends has become intimately associated with the troubling issue of player toxicity since it launched back in 2009. According to the studio, though, the issue perhaps isn't quite as prevalent as people think. At least these days.

Riot is teasing another new character coming to its eternally popular MOBA League of legends soon, the rather creepy catfish chap known as The River King.

Riot Games continues to crack down on anti-social behaviour in its eternally popular MOBA League of Legends – the latest initiative is a “player reform system” that punishes verbal harassment within fifteen minutes of a match ending. The system is now live in the North American region.

If team-mates or opponents report a layer for offensive behaviour, this new automated response system examines the situation, and if found guilty delivers him or her a reform card via email, with a chat log highlighting the offence in question and revealing the appropriate punishment.
