Exclusive: Why is League of Legends solo queue and pro play so different? It’s not what you think

LoL patch 14.15 includes changes to queueing for matches and the Arena game mode.

Riot is cracking down on players who abuse the “Decline Queue” button, which is originally meant for occasional use when something unexpected comes up. However, some players have been exploiting it to dodge matchups they don’t like.

In LoL patch 14.15, players will have a limited number of consecutive declines they can do before getting a temporary lockout. This lockout timer increases the more you decline the queue.

“We think it’s reasonable to miss a queue pop, even two to get food and or a drink, but not so many that you’re making the matchmaking experience worse for the other nine players,” said League of Legends Lead Gameplay Designer Matt “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison.

The Arena game mode is getting a refresh in this patch. One specific adjustment is being made to Koi Pond, a popular Arena map. The changes aim to make the map more balanced and open up different strategies for success.

On top of the map tweaks, there will also be new items and augments added to the Arena loot pool.
