Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 20

Hi folks, ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **Usual Disclaimers** These posts will often contain talk about future work we're doing, or planning to do, that isn't yet guaranteed to ship. The nature of the work could change or, depending on what we discover, projects mentioned may get delayed or even stopped. If you'd like to see a Tweet whenever a new one of these posts goes up: https://twitter.com/RiotMeddler ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- **Working on CS Bounties** We've got some work underway on CS bounties at the moment. Thoughts going into that: * CS bounties have been quite helpful in offering comeback chances, which has put early and midgame snowball into a significantly more appropriate state than before their introduction. * The prior bounty system that only accounted for kills unduly penalized takedowns and rewarded farming. * CS bounties aren't always functioning as they're meant to at present. While we fixed some bugs recently others are still happening resulting in CS bounties on champions who aren't clearly and meaningfully ahead of the enemy team. * The way the CS bounty system functions isn't clear enough. That makes it hard to identify bugs from intended behavior and hard to understand how to play around the bounty system in general. Kill bounties by contrast benefit from being a more straight forward system. * CS bounties are meant to reduce if the enemy team catches up on farm. Looks like that's functioning as intended at least some of the time though. Based off the above we'll be looking to fix bugs, make the system as a whole clearer and where needed change how the system functions so it’s never putting bounties on champs when they don’t have a significant advantage (e.g. when CSing well from behind, which happens at present sometimes but isn’t intended). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- **Ranked Post Next Week** The revisions to the Ranked system have been out for around a month now and we've been working our way through a lot of player sentiment and other data. We’ll have a significant update on where things are at and our plans coming next week. http://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/6.24.1/img/champion/Ziggs.png
