Refund Tokens will stay in League of Legends. Everything you need to know about Riot’s decision change

The developers of LoL have announced that they have again changed their plans for in-game refund tokens.

About a month ago, Riot raised the topic of the all-too-familiar refund tokens, which have accompanied League of Legends players for years. In a previous statement, the developers announced that the tokens would be phased out and the refund system revamped. It turns out that this idea has been abandoned. What was said in the latest announcement from Riot?

Refund tokens in League of Legends

As it was mentioned above, Riot a couple of weeks ago announced that it was removing return tokens – Changes to refund tokens in LoL. Will tokens be removed? How will refunds take place?

According to the latest information, however, it seems that this will not happen and the much-loved tokens will remain in the game.

 In the 13.1 Patch Notes we mentioned that Refund Tokens would be deprecated due to internal technical challenges with supporting an older refund system. However, after some reassessment of the situation and a focused effort from our teams over the last several weeks, we’ve identified a path forward to maintain the refund token system that has been present prior to this year. We apologize for the mixed messaging, but ultimately want to thank you for your feedback on this. We also won’t be backtracking on the 3 refund tokens that we granted to each player at the beginning of the season.

As a quick refresher on the system: Players will accumulate one (1) refund token each year up to a max total of three (3) tokens per account. The same eligibility rules will apply and can be found in more detail on the support website.

With the preservation of this system, this means the next token refresh will occur at the start of Season 14.
