League of Legends Patch 9.23 introduced the preseason lol Reddit with a major overhaul to the Rift’s terrain based on dragon spawns. Even though the map changes might be impressive eye candy, fans are finding them distracting and, in some cases, painful.
A quick “map color” search on the League subreddit reveals several posts complaining about the changes to Summoner’s Rift—specifically, the Infernal Drake terrain. The fire dragon burns up several bushes in the jungle area and molten lava seeps through the once peaceful landscape. Although the game-to-game variety is a great way to spice up the veteran map, players are begging for the option to turn off the distracting hues.
“I have just played some games on the new patch and I find the change of [sic] the colors of the map really distracting, especially with the infernal dragon,” one player said in a Reddit post. “I find it incredibly fatiguing for my eyes. I think they should introduce an option to disable it. Also I think it might be incredibly annoying for colorblind players as well [sic].”
