LoL’s new Arena mode is great, but it may have cost us more champions this year

League of Legends’ Arena mode was finally added to the game in Patch 13.14, and players absolutely love it. But the mode may have delayed champion releases, among other things.

In an interview with PCGamesN on July 20, Eduardo “Cadmus” Cortejoso, the product lead on Arena, admitted creating the mode led to the team “divert[ing] resources from other projects.” Those projects include champions.
