Except for the color change, the new Premium Chest released by Riot Games is not attractive to the LoL gaming community.
At the beginning of this year, Riot Games revealed the new currency in League of Legends, The Essence of Myth. According to the announcement, this Essence will replace Gems and Prestige Points in the 2022 season, purchasable items include Tech skins, Prestige, random skin shards, etc.
As of today, Riot Games has launched a new chest on the PBE server called Premium Chest to replace the Hextech Chest. According to the sharing, this new chest will have the opportunity to open Mythical Essence (10 Essences each time if opened).

However, this new change of Riot Games has been criticized by some gamers as “free time doing nothing” because this new type of chest is basically… no different from a Hextech Chest. Because after Mythical Essence launches on the official server, Gems will be converted at a rate of 1:10 into Mythical Essence. Therefore, the Premium Chest and the Hextech Chest… are completely different than purple and blue colors.
In particular, according to the image of the Mythical Essence store shared a week ago, this new currency will land on the official server in update 12.12 – expected at the end of June this year.
Seeing that Riot Games prepare a new chest with only purple color that can be used for almost half a year, many gamers thought that this was a bit of a “redundant” update because Riot could completely keep the Hextech Chest intact. and changed from Gems to Mythical Essence. After all, some League of Legends gamers think that this “music company” should focus on balancing the game, avoiding creating champions with “200 years of experience” instead of updating “useless” things like this. .
