LoL players rip into Riot over new Mastery emotes that look like ‘cheap mobile game’ designs

Design choices in League of Legends have always been a touchy subject for players, and things haven’t got any better today after Riot Games unveiled new and “improved” Mastery emotes that the game’s community already hates.

The new emotes, which Riot has added to League’s testing realm ahead of a wider release, have already drawn the ire of the fandom. One player shared what the new emotes look like in-game today and the unveiling was met with near-instant backlash; players say it’s an “ugly” design that looks ripped straight out of a “cheap mobile game.”
