4. Riot Games Cancels Rift Rivals in Smaller Regions Rift Rivals is a series of exhibition League of Legends matches that pits the best teams from different regions against one another. North America versus Europe and China versus South Korea versus Taiwan have been exciting rivalries that draw audiences. The Rift Rivals tournaments that feature less popular regions like Southeast Asia, Japan, Oceania, and Latin America have been cancelled this year. Apparently, they didn’t draw enough of an audience to justify the production costs.
5. Valve Pledges to Fix Artifact Artifact is Valve’s digital card game that came out late last year and then immediately and tremendously flopped. Valve posted on the game’s official site today to acknowledge the game’s shortcomings and pledge to fix them. Instead of shipping updates with new cards and the like, the Artifact team instead is going to reevaluate the core aspects of the game including game design, the economy, and the social experience of playing. They expect these fixes may take a while to implement, so if you’re hoping for a ‘fixed’ Artifact we wouldn’t recommend holding your breath.
