Premier changes during Act 3
The aim is to make Premier mode more enjoyable for players, but also fairer, Riot Games to implement a number of changes with the third Act of the current episode. We feel it's important to remind you of two of the major new features, especially if you took part in the previous session.
During this new Premier mode segment, you and your team can take part in training matches. The advantage is that you can prepare yourself in real conditions, since they use the same structure as official matches. Note that they do not allow you to win or lose points. They therefore have no no influence on your Premier score. Riot Games has not said exactly when these meetings will take place, but has indicated that they will be held outside the competition dates.
The other point we wanted to address concerns the way in which matches are played. From now on, you will have a timeout during each phaseThere's also a break during extra time. This way, you can easily discuss your strategy for maintaining the upper hand over your opponents, or think of a way to regain control of the match.
