Season three of Guild-vs-Guild is here and its prelims will begin on May 22 at 7:01pm CT. A few changes have been made to it this season.

  • The lobby banner will now upgrade as players progress on their GvG Reward Track.
  • Rewards will be given for every single armed member with no limit or ratio restrictions.
  • New missions have been added.
  • Riot is removing sabotaging from this season.
  • Champion Abilities have been disabled.
  • Dialogue will now only trigger three times per week in the beginning, middle, and towards the end of the week.

Leaver Mitigation

Riot is adding the option to remake matches in Wild Rift in case an ally abandons the game. If an ally leaves the match at the start, players can vote to remake the game. If this vote is successful, no team will receive a loss and all consumables will be refunded. The player who is AFK will get a loss, though. Riot will initially bring this only for Normal PvP games before expanding it to all modes.

Riot is also adding some changes in case a player leaves in the middle of the match. This includes higher punishment with more Ranked Fortitude or VP deducted for the player that goes AFK. The rest of the team will get more Ranked Fortitude or lose less VP.

Ranked

  • Riot is also making several adjustments to Ranked Fortitude in Patch 3.2 Players who perform really well in matches they lost will be given some extra Ranked Fortitude.
  • Additionally, Riot will now be calculating the Fortitude first in end-of-game settlements to ensure that the Shield is applied if you have enough Fortitude.

Wild Pass
