As League of Legends evolves (hello DJ Sona), we strive to develop new features and environments to enrich your out-of-game experience too. I’m here to talk to you about Boards, a successor to the current forums and a discussion platform built from the ground-up.

PREPARE TO BE BOARDED
A bit of backstory: the current forum was put in place (and had a redesign on the UI a few years ago) when League of Legends was just getting started – a time when the playerbase was considerably lower – and as time has gone on, we’ve had to make some considerable compromises when using the current platform which has resulted in negatives on both sides of the build - in security, moderation, and feature development.

However, with freedom to develop our own software and backend (manifesting recently in the NA Community Beta, comments in news posts and so on), I’m pleased to announce that the EU Boards are now open in beta and ready for posting!

FORUM A BRIGHTER TOMORROW
With a new layout and easy-to-use subcategories (known as Communities) – the “General Discussion trap” of having everything funnel to one subforum is an issue we’re trying to combat. Having specialised areas for like-themed posts will help you make sure your content will find the right audience.

The Community list will be combined on your front page so if you’re still a GD enthusiast, it provides a similar experience, especially if you set the mode to “recent” for the Boards homepage, and “chronological” in the comments – and there’ll be more on how you can get the most out of Boards in the coming weeks. Below is a taster:

KEEP MOVIN' ON
Something else to put on your radar is that with the Boards launch, we will be closing and archiving the current forum (meaning you will still be able to access your posts and link them around, but no longer comment) on February 24th. This deadline is close, but recent security issues have surfaced and we need to make sure that we have a platform available where we can mitigate these issues as they arise - something that is not currently possible.

I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER
Another new development is the merging of EUNE and EUW English to have one English-speaking forum for all European players. This should eliminate the disparity between the two platforms and ensure that we give the same level of interaction without one feeling maligned. We get that server issues and individual initiatives will remain independent but most conversation topics will be very similar. A cool piece of art is a cool piece of art; balance changes are worldwide!

If you want to see what a fully-populated Boards looks like, check out North America’s forum - but for now, go explore the Boards Beta!

It looks worse imo. It takes that friendly light, newcomer might feel unpleasant.

How am I supposed to talk trash about the EUW players when they too are there?
