As per each season of League of Legends, players who participate in ranked queues and reach a high enough tier receive rewards for their effort spent year-round. For a majority of the game's existence, anyone who passes Silver into Gold at minimum receives a Victorious skin that resembles a golden/white version of a champion for free.
However, this year, many League of Legends fans are unhappy with Riot's rewards at the end of Season 11.
The Victorious skins and Ranked rewards drive many players to compete all year long. However, apparently, Blitzcrank falls to the bottom of the list for possible candidates to receive this skin.
Blitzcrank doesn't exactly fare similarly to the other Victorious skins, like Graves, Aatrox, and Lucian, who all display powerful, inspirational champions worthy of carrying the Victorious label.
Season 11 rewards don't live up to League of Legends players' expectations
The biggest letdown that League of Legends players are upset over is the decision for the Victorious skin, Blitzcrank. Many people are stating how the Great Steam Golem doesn't fit in with the Victorious stigma.
The skin looks a little clunky, and the Chromas that come with it don't make it look any better.
Alongside that, the Chromas released are based on the individual League of Legends player's rank in solo/duo queue and flex queue, meaning they don't get to choose which one they want.
As fans on Twitter are stating, the only one worth obtaining is the Challenger version that depicts a bright golden and blue image of Blitzcrank. Riot offers several Chromas for each skin for a reason: to give players the ultimate customization option so they can pick which color scheme they want.
The next item on the list that League of Legends players aren't happy with is the Summoner Icons that display their rank aside from the Victorious skin. Apparently, this year's Icons are incredibly similar to last year.
There can't be much variation between the years, but fans say Season 11's are basically reused from Season 10.
The Clash system for Season 11 is also taking a beating. Finishing in high enough tiers in Clash offer similar rewards for solo queue and flex, but players are starting to say that the rewards are not worth the effort and issues that the game mode brings.
Almost all of Season 11's ranked rewards fall below what League of Legends users wanted. Riot has done an excellent job with the reward system in previous years and has given players high-quality loot. However, this year, a good chunk of fans are reacting negatively.
Hopefully, Season 12 can revamp what League of Legends offers its players who grind it out in ranked.
