In League of Legends' Preseason 2024, Riot Games had some significant goals in mind. They wanted to shake up the game by tweaking the map itself. Their aim was to ensure that every player would notice fresh combat interactions right from their very first match of the new season.

So, what were their goals? Riot wanted to give top lane champions more control in their battles. They also aimed to assist mages who tend to stay in the mid lane. Additionally, they aimed to even the playing field between the red and blue sides of the map, ensuring that neither side had an advantage.

In this overview of the Preseason 2024 changes, we'll break down what Riot did to achieve these goals and how it will impact your League of Legends experience in the upcoming season.

Riot is making it easier for the top lane to access fights in the river. Also, it's much harder to get ganked on the top lane now since there are now brushes to hide the jungler.

With these changes, Riot wants to open the map more for immobile mid-lane carries.

By moving the brushes back, mid-laners can't be ganked as effectively by junglers anymore.

The access to the dragon pit is now more evenly balanced.

The red side tri-brush is now more important as it now also has three entrances.

That's it for the map changes in PreSeason 2024. I personally find the changes quite appealing. Both sides should be well-balanced and have the same opportunities. Additionally, a bit of fresh air is always welcome. It's okay for Meta to be shaken up from time to time. However, whether this proves true remains to be seen.
