League of Legends: Why I actually like the new Preseason 3 shop

Hi humans.

A lot of people have been complaining about the new Preseason 3 shop in League of Legends, claiming that it’s hard to use and impossible to find anything efficiently.

First of all, the glaring problem with the shop being difficult to navigate is just because people aren’t used to it. But, that’s not the point of this blog post – to me, regardless of how hard it is to find items in the new shop, I still actually like it. The screenshot below will explain why:

Yes, that is the recommended items section of the shop for Zyra, my main champion.

Using some software called LoLStudio, I was able to customize all of my recommended items and categories.

There were options available for the Season 2 shop to customize the recommended items as well, but you would only be able to select six items. In the new shop, you can literally have as many recommended items as you want.

So, I went ahead and customized it so every single item I would possibly ever consider purchasing on Zyra is right at my fingertips. No matter what role I’m playing or who my opponents are, I have everything I could possibly want (literally) a single screen away.

In ranked games where victories and defeats matter, and every split second counts, I recommend using this software to set custom recommended item builds for all the champions you regularly play competitively. Not only will it save you time, but it will help you stay focused on the game rather than having to struggle through navigating an unfamiliar shop every time you return to base.
