LoL devs admit Riven has ‘legitimate problems’—but they’re waiting on changes for now

For a couple of patches now, Riven has been one of the worst top laners in League of Legends with her pick rate hovering between two and three percent, and her win rate stuck at 48 percent. In fact, Riven feels so off that even Riot Games admits she has issues.

On Nov. 12, League lead gameplay designer Matt “Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison finally opened up the discussion about the current state of Riven. In a post on social media, the dev broke down the reason behind her low play rate and what the future holds for her.
