So...what exactly does a season change involve?

I think there may be a large change in the meta, since Riot has said they they want to fix the "3.5 lanes of gold income" where supports and junglers are forced into much more utility.

They said that last season too.

The meta hasn't changed as much as people like to think. Worlds last year were dominated by AP Assassin mids (Diana and Evelynn last year), and junglers bought HoG every game before picking up an Aegis of Legion and Randuins. Instead of SV you had FoN, but tanky junglers were the way to go (see lilballz tanking all day with Dr Mundo)

Supports still never bought anything but wards, philo and boots. They got HoG instead of SightStone, but it amounted to basically the same thing. And since Shurelya's was actually good back then and HoG built into Randuins, a fed support could actually expect to have some decent items by end-game.

They said they'd do a massive overall to junglers and support, so I expect more than what happened in S3. I'm excited to see the changes.

It was funny that season 3 supports were meant to have far expanded itemization options, and I'm pretty sure itemizing got leaner for them than it ever did in season 2.

What we got last season was laziness. Rather than fixing the problems of S2, they decide **** it lets just throw it all out the window WITHOUT balancing champions in conjunction with the massive items rework (this is pure laziness while trying reinvigorate the game the lazy way). We also got a new ranked system that's worst than the old one with Lyte tampering with matchmaking to make it even more flawed. We also got a semi new jungle, that exacerbates the problems of the old S2 jungle as Riot tried to do the opposite, and you know how Riot responds? **** it, next season *insert the dumbest face you can imagine with the riot logo tattoed on his face*. This season has been hilarious.
