Riot Games has listed the 4.20 patch notes for League of Legends with "Strategic Diversity" the big thing for the 2015 preseason, according to the studio. They want "more paths to victory".
In fact this is one of the largest sweep of changes yet, as they introduce a "metric tonne" of additions and alterations from map-wide objectives to complete overhauls.
"To be blunt, we were dubious about the idea of introducing so much change to the game, but then we realized that preseason is high-time for refining, polishing, and evolving, so we went for some ambitious goals this year. It's also worth noting that this is just the beginning," said Riot Games' Chris 'Pwyff' Tom.

"There are... a lot of changes here and, with so many variables at play, we're expecting the game to be disrupted, imperfect, and requiring even more work over time. That said, we're confident with the direction this preseason is headed, and we're more than happy to course correct as things play out. There's no comparison for our months of internal tests against millions of your own, so we're excited (and a little scared) to see what you have up your sleeves."
