Legends of Runeterra 1.5 patch notes released, details A.R.A.M. mode

Legends of Runeterra 1.5 Patch Notes

The new Legends of Runeterra 1.5 patch has been deployed. Not only does the patch includes a bunch of bug and balance fixes. The Season of Fortune continues with prep work also being laid for patch 1.6. Several other balance changes are getting tested by the LoR team to come in that patch as well. Riot is pouring most of their focus int the new Labs mode though.

The Legends of Runeterra 1.5 update will see the first Lab, titled A.R.A.M, added in the patch. The new Lab mode will offer some very interesting features for hardcore players. The Lab allows players to experiment and make random adjustments to their decks in much more random ways.

What is Legends of Runeterra’s Labs mode?

Labs will be an experimental take on Legends of Runeterra‘s game types. There will be much more variety in deck builds and overall gameplay styles. The game modes within Legends of Runeterra’s Labs will be much more casual though, as the metagame is less important. The modes will place random modifiers on matches, as well as other changes, to shake things up for players.

And if you want to get in the fun with friends, players can challenge their friends to Lab mode directly from the friends list.

Players won’t be building normal decks in Legends of Runeterra’s Labs, instead hero units will be hit with a random modifier at the beginning of a match. From there, the game will randomly generate a deck for you to battle against your friend or online opponent. This is sure to make things very interesting.

Check out the full patch note for Legends of Runeterra 1.5 down below.
