Is Twisted Treeline coming back in League of Legends?

Withered Rose Skins

Everyone’s wondering whether or not League of Legends’ Twisted Treeline is coming back, and recent LoL events could give fans hope for a future return.

When League of Legends first came out, Twisted Treeline was a major part of the game. It stayed for 10 years before Riot retired it in 2019. Since then, dedicated fans have hoped for a return for the game mode. The mode was removed from LoL because it wasn’t popular, but the fans it did have were enthusiastic about it. Between those players and others looking for its nostalgia, there’s been a big movement to bring Twisted Treeline back.

It’s not crazy to think that Twisted Treeline is coming back, though. Riot could bring the game mode back in a few different ways.

When is Twisted Treeline coming back?

There’s no official announcement or date for Twisted Treeline making a return, but it could return in the future.

League of Legends has a few different event modes that it keeps on rotation, like URF. In the past, it was common for the game to have different event modes for skinlines. Examples of this include the Odyssey skins and the Blood Moon skins. Each had their own event mode that came with it.

While the MOBA strayed away from event modes at one point, it looks like they’re coming back. The 2024 Arena game mode is a sign that Riot may be ready to try new game modes to play. This could be the perfect way to bring back Twisted Treeline.

Considering Riot shut down the game mode because of the lack of players, bringing it as an event would be perfect. As a limited-time event mode, the hope would be that more people play it while it’s out. This would keep queue times down and leave players ready for the next time it appeared. It’s the same theory that other games use with game modes, like Valorant’s Escalation mode.

What is Twisted Treeline in League of Legends?

Twisted Treeline was a three-versus-three League of Legends game mode with two laners and a jungler.

The idea of having three players on two lanes was to speed up the game. A League of Legends game on Summoner’s Rift generally took about 30 to 40 minutes. Twisted Treeline games lasted about half that time.

The map was two horizontal lanes with a jungle in between. This was a bit more like a regular League of Legends game on Summoner’s Rift, which was a large part of the appeal. While ARAM is another permanent game mode where people can play shorter games, it’s nothing like Summoner’s Rift. Twisted Treeline filled that gap.

It had both unranked and ranked games. However, while player counts were a big problem, another problem was balancing. Champions in League of Legends are generally the same across all game modes. Having a quick game on Twisted Treeline and longer games on Summoner’s Rift made balancing champions a challenge.

Balancing issues are a major problem in a ranked game mode, but it’s not an issue in fun, event modes. URF is notorious for having some champions be overpowered, but it’s not a big deal because it’s for chaotic fun. Twisted Treeline would be a perfect event game mode for this reason.
