Riot Games announced big changes to their upcoming League of Legends stat tracking system, Eternals.

Back when Riot Games announced the Eternals system back in August, the information was incredibly vague. It was announced as a system for tracking unique statistics in League of Legends games that would give players in-game notifications for certain significant milestones.

While players struggled to figure out exactly how the system would work, whether the different unlocks would apply to all champions or just some, and get information as to what sorts of shout-outs they would be getting one issue came to the forefront. League of Legends players were infuriated at the announcement that the Eternals would only be purchasable with RP.

Well, Riot apparently took those criticisms to heart. Today, they announced that the Eternals system would no longer be available only through RP. While that will still be the main way through which players can access Eternals, starter series will be available for purchase with Blue Essence and some series will be earnable “via ranked splits.” This means that players will likely be able to earn the series organically, without spending real-world money.

In addition, Riot announced that additional, unique Eternals will be added to each champion, meaning that more intricate stats for your favorite champions will be tracked. Players will also be able to toggle the Eternals settings to customize how much information will be announced in your games.

Finally, while Riot did not give a release date for Eternals, they did tease that the system will be coming in early 2020. For now, players will have to track their stats the old-fashioned way.
