With the Vietnam League of Legends server returning to the management from Riot Games, the community promises to have a lot more features and attractive rewards.
In recent days, the Vietnamese gaming community has been talking about Garena returning League of Legends to Riot Games after 10 years of attachment. At this time, there are many gamers discussing the issue of account transfer, VCS quality, “gains and losses” of players between Riot and Garena servers, etc.
Here are the pros and cons when the League of Legends server is operated by Riot Games:
For many League of Legends gamers, looking up account data on information sites (such as op.gg, bliz.gg, u.gg, …).
Even if there are problems in the game, players will receive attentive support through the Riot Games website.
The Vietnamese LoL server will be supported by Riot Games with more Vietnamese content, for example, some content on the plot page has not been translated and posted by Garena.
Players can buy in-game items directly from Riot’s official websites without having to go to the client. For example, buying a new Fire Image theme:
Furthermore, the newly released skins can be purchased directly for a fixed price instead of the “gacha” feature like at Garena events. Many skins will also be available for sale year-round without being limited to events, such as Yasuo Legendary Dragon Sword.
In addition, the community can own unique items such as the Jax Staff statue from Riot’s store and receive additional free items such as in-game icons.
In Vietnam, LoL’s giftcode is quite rare for players in recent years. However, in foreign countries, players can easily receive giftcodes with attractive rewards in the game through participating in offline events.
The gaming community can also receive attractive in-game gifts when following the Arcane series, following the Esports tournament, etc.
With the management of Riot Games as well as the new publisher, League of Legends will definitely have a new login interface with “luxurious visuals” than before.
Although there has been no official announcement, it is highly likely that LoL Vietnam will have more features like on the Riot Games server, such as Clash, regular ban and pick, etc.
In particular, attractive items such as Rename Cards on servers managed by Riot can be purchased with Blue Essence instead of the current “RP exclusive”.
New League of Legends updates will no longer be “delayed” compared to Riot Games’ servers.
The denouncement and purge system at the Riot Games server will likely also be much more effective than before. So the situation of “tool hack livestream” is likely to disappear in the Vietnamese server in the near future.
In terms of Esports, the VCS tournament will be “modified” by Riot Games, so the leading League of Legends tournament in Vietnam promises to be organized much more professionally.
Besides, with the “joining home” with Riot, the community of “players” will likely be able to participate in official tournaments (such as Worlds) of the Tactics Arena. Because before that, the Vietnamese TFT community had not been able to participate in Riot’s international tournaments for many years.
Talking about the downside, what the LoL community is most concerned about is probably the loss of Garena’s “huge” promotions. Along with that is the “gacha” events that will no longer appear regularly on Riot Games’ servers.
On the other hand, Riot has announced that it will convert RP at a certain rate, but this ratio has not been officially announced yet. So it is possible that the average price to buy clothes may increase compared to before.
