League of Legends Receiving Daily Quests

Riot Games is gearing up to add daily quests to League of Legends in an effort to keep things from becoming “monotonous or stagnant,” according to designer Evan “Revenancer” Humphreys.

The name for daily quests in League of Legends will be “Missions,” although they will function identically to daily quests in games like Hearthstone or Heroes of the Storm.

Humphreys did not outline any quests in particular when revealing the system, but did explain that their idea of a “good” mission was something like “Win three games with at least 10 kills/assists,” rather than a “bad” mission which would result in you trolling your friends or throwing the game.

“League of Legends is first and foremost a PvP game that’s about battling it out on the Rift. It isn’t an RPG; we don’t want to make the game about questing or checking boxes off a list,” said Humphreys. “We won’t be flooding the game with a deluge of missions just to keep shaking things up.”

“Our goal with Missions is to deepen all sorts of aspects of the game you already enjoy. Now regions and feature teams have the flexibility to add missions that enhance your experience with new goals and rewards.”

Humphreys also hinted at the possibility of esports organisation-themed ‘mission chains’ that a player could use to “demonstrate your loyalty to TSM (or CLG, if you’re a masochist like me)”.
