Riot fulfilled a seven month-old promise with its announcement of the new Eternals achievement system coming in Patch 9.17, but the community reaction has been horrible. Why? A lot of players don't think the feature is worth paying for.


Reddit user u/molenzwiebel took it upon themselves to lay out all of the Eternals for each champion in alphabetical order, and despite their hard work, the only thing that caught people's attention was how underwhelming they looked.


The goal with Eternals was to implement a unique and comprehensive way to showcase individual skill and mastery over a champion. The thread critiques the product as repetitive, generic, and undeserving of its associated price tag.

Unlike ProView, which succeeded in overcoming its initial paywall by providing users a plethora of unique experiences, the Eternals feature doesn't seem to offer a level of novelty that would warrant a player paying money to have it for themselves. Riot design lead Justin "Xenogenic" Hanson addressed these concerns and many others in a Twitter thread.
