news tip League of Legends: Bel’Veth made the community roar, we explain why

The release of League of Legends’ 160th champion has never been closer, yet the character has already garnered some negative remarks from the MOBA gaming community. Fortunately, there was still time for Riot Games to adjust some details, we explain what happened.

After being at the center of the wildest theories for ten years, League of Legends’ 160th character is now set to join the rest in Summoner’s Rift. It is indeed expected that it will come out on the occasion of the 12.11 update, which should be online in the coming days. Bel’Veth by her nickname, the Empress of the Void comes in the form of a gigantic winged monster, occasionally taking on a slightly more human form. However, while the character is already available on the PBE (the test server accessible to players), its design has already caused problems with the community. Very quickly, Riot Games then made some changes.

Darker, more detailed

It must be said that between the superb reveal video of the character and its in-game model, Bel’Veth was able to disappoint a good number of players. While we were promised a Void monster as dark as it was terrifying, Riot finally gave us a creature with almost fluorescent colors, on the verge of reminding the oldest of the old colors of the game released in 2009.

As you can see in this before/after comparison, the developers have therefore finally chosen to tone down the colors of the Void Empress, more particularly concerning the yellow part of her body, which is much too bright for such a character. But they didn’t stop there, as observant observers will also be able to see finer detail on Bel’Veth’s wings, accentuating its bat-like appearance.

The community finally appreciated this change as clear as fast. The new version of the 160th character of the game will therefore certainly be the last, even if Reav3, the champions manager of League of Legends, hasn’t really confirmed anything about it.

This design change was also not the only one made by the Riot Games team on the character of Bel’Veth during its posting on the PBE. In League of Legends, each champion benefits from an artwork representing him, as well as a smaller icon, to be integrated during the games and in the menus of the game. It is this icon that we find in the character selection grid, and on the mini-map at the bottom right of the screen. While generally not a problem for developers, the issue was a little more complex for the Void Empress.

Indeed, the character is characterized by its change of form, between a monstrous version and another more human. The two faces were visible on his in-game model, so it was necessary to choose which of the two would be used for the profile icon. And if Riot Games seemed at first glance to want to emphasize its monstrous form, they finally changed their minds by proposing an icon representing the human face of Bel’Veth. While the decision may not yet be final, there is no doubt that it will be debated within the MOBA community.
