The developers from Riot Games have taken to the official site of MOBA League of Legends to reveal the decision to disable /all chat in patch 11.21. The team explained that the chat can be a source of fun interactions between teams but at the moment the negative interactions outweigh the positive ones.
“We’ll evaluate the impact of this change through verbal abuse reports and penalty rates, as well as surveys and direct feedback from you all.
We know this sucks for those of you who just want to compliment your lane opponent’s skin, or ask for a dance party in Baron pit. But we believe the tradeoff is worth it to cut down on the growing negativity /all chat has been creating in your games.”
Previously the developers have been on hand with the September 2021 champion roadmap. In it, the developers shared more information about the Art & Stability Updates (ASU). The team is not quite ready to share who will be receiving ASUs, but the text offers some information about what can be expected from these “pure visual updates” altogether.
Additionally, the team also shared the progress they have made on Udyr’s VGU. There will be another blog early next year with a lot more info. The devs went for a new smaller spread of antlers to look more natural, cleaner and showcase his druidic focus over sharp weapon.
