Map & Terrain Changes in League of Legends Season 2024

There are map and terrain changes across all lanes on the Rift starting from top lane to bottom. There are also changes made to the jungle including parts of the river and surrounding neutral monsters including the Baron Nashor and dragon.

Let's start with the lanes and then explore parts of the river and the jungle.

Top Lane Map Changes in Season 2024

In the top side of the Summoner's Rift, Riot Games has made two major changes:

top lane
  • It has tried to mirror the terrain from blue to red side to make ganking paths similar. This also makes lane ganks trickier.

  • There is a new little wall and brush combination in the middle of the river entrance to the top lane.


Mid Lane

Riot has created more space in the mid lane by pushing the brush back a bit and moving one gank path further back. The publisher believes that this will help create safety and space for immobile mid-lane mages who do not have escape abilities like dashes in their kits.

Bottom Lane Changes in Season 2024

Just like the top-lane change, Riot has added in a small wall and a pixel brush right beside it. Apart from this, the other change is only for the red side. Riot Games has mirrored the blue side tri-brush area onto the red side and opened up a new gank path beside the tower. This will help make both sides more symmetrical, and eliminate side advantages when it comes to gank protection and warding.

In the jungle, there are new walls here and there. The biggest terrain change in the jungle is a new, wide wall directly across from the Baron and Drake pits.
