How often have you wished League of Legends would allow more than one of the same champion in a match? On the same side, even. Well, you won't have to rely on mods anymore just for 10v10 hilarity, because the new gameplay mode "One for All" can get the job done.
As one of many upcoming gameplay modes heading to League, One for All basically "consists of two teams of five players all using the same champion." Matchmaking will send you straight to Summoner's Rift, but you can use any map with One for All in Custom Games. Just imagine: five Lux lasers crisscrossing across the damn map. Oh, wait! Five Jinx ults on the same map! Or five Jarvans dunking each other! This is going to be awful and amazing all at once.
If you're wondering about what other gameplay modes League of Legends will be getting, just hang tight. Riot doesn't want to release them all at once, since they're still testing the waters right now. Here's what they had to say:
Featured Gameplay Modes are about ready to burst onto the League! We have a variety of experimental modes - each with a unique spin on the classic League of Legends formula – that we’re looking to introduce one at a time. We’re limiting the availability of each mode so that you can try out a variety of different game types. After they’re brought down, we’ll check out your feedback as we develop new game modes - there’s always a chance that we’ll bring back the ones you love the most, too.
The first mode we’re introducing is One For All, which consists of two teams of five players all using the same champion. The One For All matchmaking queue will be featured on Summoner’s Rift, but you’ll be able to try the mode out on any League map via custom games. If you’ve ever dreamed of nuking an enemy team with five Final Sparks, chaining together a series of Unstoppable Forces or living forever with back-to-back Chronoshifts, now’s your chance.
I'm far too excited for this mode. But if I see ten Popstar Ahri(s) on Howling Abyss, I'm going to cry a little.
