LET'S GET TO THE ROOT OF IT!

Exciting news Summners! A new GAMEPLAY MECHANIC is being introduced in this Meta Event! A new effect type, ROOT.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

When Rooted, a Champion's movement is locked. You can still perform any action, but you won’t move from your location when doing so. So for example, you can still dodge special attacks with Dexterity, Parry, and use your own Special Attacks (Unless a global buff says otherwise). You just won’t do any lateral movement associated with those actions. We hope to explore this new effect on further global buffs or even characters/buffs for players to use! So make sure to try them out and let us know what you think.

WHERE DO I SEE IT?

Each day, on every difficulty, they’ll be a Global buff that uses Root in a slightly different way to give you a feel for it. The difficulty has been tuned around these buffs, so there shouldn’t be too much complexity going on around them. Unless you want to take a swing at Legendary, where an extra wrinkle has been added to keep you on your feet.

WHERE CAN I SHARE MY FEEDBACK?

Right HERE in this thread!

We look forward to hearing from you all!

Cheerio!

    Is there an option to keep this on? Or is it just a debuff?

    Also how would basic attacks work since you can't go forward but the opponents move back when you get hit?

    I guess hyperion/arkus is best to counter this mechanic

    I'm rooting for this one to be not terrible.

    We are certainly looking forward to this taking root in the community!

  • As my first thought isn't this going to affect champions, that have abilities that work when you have your opponent on their wall or when you are backed on your wall? Like dragon man and annihilus for example.
