Patch Notes – Legends of Runeterra Beta Open

After a few months of testing in Closed Beta , we finally got the chance to play Legends of Runeterra to all players.

Regardless of whether you are a fan of League of Legends who wants to discover this new facet of his favorite characters, or if you have come from Hearthstone to see how this new title is, we have information that will be a lot useful for you

It is clear that during the initial tests conclusions were reached and it is for this reason that Riot Games has released a specific patch for the beginning of this much more massive experience and close to the official premiere of the video game.

If you’re not aware, here are the Legends of Runeterra Open Beta patch notes .

Economy update

  • We have restarted all accounts and eliminated all the progress made during trial versions. This is the last restart we will do. Everything you get after the start of the open beta will be yours forever.
  • We have updated the prices of the currencies and the purchasing power they grant so that they adapt to the standards of the Play Store and the App Store. During the trial versions, we used prices similar to those of the RPs in League of Legends on a provisional basis, but now that we know that LoR will be released for mobile this year, we have had to establish our own and unique pricing structure. When designing this structure, we also review the relationships between prices at the regional level (specifically, we analyze the differences between countries in the same region). This means that the magnitude of these adjustments depends significantly on your local currency. Some you will find very similar prices (in the case of the euro and the dollar), while others will see that they have increased (Turkish lira, Brazilian real) or decreased (Japanese yen).
    • Important note: If you have purchased coins during trial versions, know that we have removed all content purchased with them and returned the corresponding amount of coins. The total amount of coins has changed, but you will have at least the same purchasing power as before (prices have also changed).
  • We have adjusted the value of the fragments to preserve the 10-1 value relationship between coins and fragments. In addition, we have slightly modified the relative values ​​of the fragments (for example, the fourth rare and epic copies are worth a little more; and the common ones, somewhat less).
  • In this regard, we have changed the prices in fragments and currencies of the content to adapt them to the changes explained above (common jokers, for example, are now somewhat cheaper, while epics cost more). </ li>
  • The cash rewards, expeditions, prologue and chests in general have been updated. A large part of these changes have to do with the updates to the economy, but we also want the expeditions to be more accessible, so we have added an expedition record to the level 10 boxes and we have increased the proportional amount of fragments obtained on expeditions.
  • We have updated the rewards of EXP to help you progress without having to spend your life playing. Now you will get a bonus for the first X wins of the day and you will get more EXP when you lose. On the other hand, once you have exceeded a certain amount of hours played in a single day, you will get less EXP.


  • The sort queue has been activated.
  • The beta season, the first LoR qualifying season, starts with the open beta.
