January is drawing to a close and Riot’s annual Lunar Revel event is on the horizon. As with most years, Riot Games is going all out for the Lunar New Year, releasing a themed set of skins in Patch 12.2 along with Battle Pass missions and rewards. But due to some issues in the backend, the studio is changing the way these event points are accumulated a bit this time compared to last December’s Debonair event.

During December, Riot made some changes to its events, trying to align them with playing the game in general rather than a specific frequency. Playing a certain amount of games rewards giving up and replaying, and makes long games feel bad, so Riot changed missions to reflect total time spent. That way, your 50-minute solo queue bangers were a little sweeter in victory and a little less sour in defeat.
However, in its attempts to improve the system, Riot accidentally managed to do it more It is difficult for players to progress through the Token Bank missions due to the lack of a way to transfer points from one mission to the next, limiting players’ overall progress. Since they haven’t fixed the new system yet, the developers for Token Bank missions are going back to the old one.
However, the point requirements to complete the other missions will continue with their new system but reduced by 15% to 40% from the Debonair event to make it less time consuming.
To find all the specific details of the mission requirements go to Riot’s website, which lists charts for each type of mission in the Lunar Revel event. Riot has a ton of skins as usual, but this year it created quite a few Lunar Legend Tactician (for Teamfight Tactics) as well as TFT’s own Golden Lantern event.
Riot’s League of Legends Lunar Revel event starts on January 26th and lasts until February 28th.
