A few days ago, the host for Southeast Asia accidentally leaked the jungle changes coming in Preseason 2023, and the recent Roadmap video Riot Games posted, only confirmed the leak details.
There are only two regions in the world where the host of League of Legends servers are not Riot Games themselves. One is China, where Tencent, Riot's parent company host the servers, and the other is Southeast Asia, where Garena takes care of hosting.
Due to that, Garena are privy to information regarding game changes ahead of time, as they are expected to keep up with the rest of the world and notify their players on how the game will progress.
And, as it happens a few times each year to different game developers, even Riot themselves when it comes to Valorant, Garena posted an article on preseason 2023 changes too early.
In essence, there, the developers talk about easing the barrier of entry to the jungle role, for both new players and champions alike. That means easier mechanics such as monster aggro reset, easier clear optimization, and adding a new feature to the game, in the form of jungle pets.
And, while the roadmap did not go into a lot of detail on which changes to the jungle they will implement, Riot have confirmed that changes are coming.
What interests us is that the Riot employees doing the videos are the exact same as the Garena article refers to, saying that the video has already been taped some time ago.
This means that the details of jungle changes in the Garena leak are legit, and we can expect the role to be easier going forward.
