Hey Dudes!

A little over a month ago, a number of developers and I participated in Riot’s first ever Thunderdome – a periodic, companywide event aimed at allowing developers to work on whatever they want. My team set out to make the Proving Grounds, our basic tutorial map, playable as full on 5v5. This is something I’ve wanted to do ever since I originally worked on the map, and with the help of some other devs (and a good bit of caffeine) we managed to get everything up and running. Everyone was pretty happy with how the effort turned out, and with the upcoming removal of Winter Summoner’s Rift we saw an opportunity to sneak the new map out by repurposing the same UI hooks.

In the next patch, the Proving Grounds map will be selectable in custom games. While we’ve been playtesting it internally as All Random (and lovin’ it) for quite some time now, all the pick options will be available – Blind Pick, Draft, and All Random – because we’re excited to see what variation you enjoy the most. We’d love to hear any feedback that you may have, as both RiotNome and myself will be providing support post release. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Fellow Rioters who helped me sneak this out:
Bigbadabruin
chunkface
Drevarius
Kilmourz
RiotNome
Ponts
positron7
Riot Taco Storm
RiotTroyzilla
subninja
Veigar


Ask and ye shall receive, fans.

This will keep the "NEW MAP PLZ" seagulls at bay for a week or two on youtube/facebook/LoL forums comments for a while.

And I always told RIOT: "make good use of that map, it's perfect for ARAM". Finally good news
HoN is really making RIOT work

Just to be clear, the new ARAM map has it's own set of rules.

Increased gold gain. Not as much as on Crystal scar, but still increased.
You cannot buy GA, Leviathan, Sword of the occult or, Mejais.
Leaving the base means you cannot run back and heal. You can run back, but you can not heal on the platform or buy from it.
Backing is also completely disabled.

It's amazing how much work they did on this and if you really want to, it's out on the PBE for everyone to try.
True love is found only in yourself.
