Devs were deep in development on a League card game when their world was forever changed by Hearthstone’s launch. They were faced with a decision: Ship a nearly-ready game that wasn’t up to the new standard? Or start from scratch?

This is the story of how Legends of Runeterra almost wasn’t.

    Thank you for sharing this! A card game I had been working on for about 2 years if close to its final version and earlier this year a card game came out with some of the ideas I wanted to for the environmental feel of it and I thought I could be the first. Also found out they started less then a year ago and dont even have 70 cards base cards. It was kind like how yall talked about hearthstone.
    But I love yalls game so much and know others do to. Makes me feel like I can do it and another log has been placed on the fire to help me keep in going with it. Thanks again!

    Such a shame that the balance team focus on data rather than player feelings and emotions now. The game meta is in such a bad state right now and they barely seem to make balance updates anymore. The most recent patch notes were so lacking. I hope they fix it because I love this game and it is imo the best card game on the market right now.

    Honestly this is some nice insight to the dev process, thanks for throwing this out. This kind of candor is rare in the industry.
    Obviously I have no idea what "Bacon" would have eventually turned into, however LoR is easily the most fun I've had with any card game, HS included. I'm happy ya'll stuck with it and made the game you did.

    I know riot gets a lot of backlash now and then along their approach to players of their game, but it's so refreshing to see that we can't just view the entirety of riot as the same and gems like you 2 also exist in that space. A really wholesome story and i'm glad to see you 2 making your passion a reality!

    What about the part where you let your prototype get leaked because you couldn't be bothered to have decent cloud security? Or what about the part where you kept jerking the company that was actually designing and programming the game around only to end up precisely where we started? For those that don't know, Riot outsourced the design of Bacon to another company and only provided oversight and "direction" to that company. I use quotes because they weren't really good at directing. Bacon could have been released to market a year before Hearthstone even was announced.

    These clips show why riot is a great company. It's honest.
    "I hope it isn't good"
    "It's so much better then what we have"
    I do not see other company's talking about stuff like this with this honesty.

    All the game now is meta decks and half of the cards being unplayable because they don't know how to balance cards.
    You wanted a game with interactions, and we got almost no interaction.
    No, using a unit at turn 1 and it getting destroyed at turn 1 isn't interaction, for interaction you need multiple decisions and variables, not your typical 2 counters.

    There's actually an article in Kotaku from 2013 that indicates that some sort of card game was scrapped by Riot. Apparently the first iteration of LOR was called "League of Legends: Supremacy"
