League of Legend’ new game mode, Teamfight Tactics, might be off to a flying start, but its success has drawn Riot’s attention to some of the game’s less-beloved features. And while TFT has now been confirmed as a permanent game mode, the end of this season will be the end of one of League of Legends’ most long-standing maps. In a dev post published last night, Riot said that at the end of the 2019 season, 3v3 map The Twisted Treeline will be retired from the game. In the post, principal game designer Stephen Mortimer revealed that player numbers for the map were lower than the already-retired Nexus Blitz, leading to “long queue times, poor matchmaking, and ultimately an unsatisfying PvP experience.” As a result, Riot debated increased support for the map, but said that “the lack of growth from the previous efforts […] led us to the conclusion that it just wouldn’t be enough to make Treeline a healthy long-term mode.” As a result, the end of the current season will see the map removed as a matchmaking option.
