League of Legends is rewarding players for teaming up with new and old party members for the next two weeks.
Riot Games announced on its official blog they will be implementing new system awards bonus that gives players IP for helping out their fellow players. The Party Rewards is currently in its trial period, but the LoL developers will be monitoring the affects on gameplay. The goal is to make LoL a more â€œpositiveâ€ gaming environment and encourage users to go into matches with a full team.
â€œEnter any matchmade queue with a premade party and the entire group earns a chance at multiplying the standard IP reward. Party Rewards work a lot like normal IP rewards–thereâ€™re different scales depending on the queue. For example, Summonerâ€™s Rift queues award more IP than Twisted Treeline or Howling Abyss queues,â€ according Riot Gamesâ€™ blog.
â€œThere is a chance your group earns no Party Reward, but larger premade groups win higher tiers of IP rewards. Some lucky players will even earn rare, massive IP prizes. If you queue alone, you wonâ€™t be eligible for Party Rewards.
Riot Games will disable to Party Rewards once the two-week trial ends. However, it is unclear how the developers will measure the success of their new system. Below is the chart the developers provide to help players understand how the system works.
