Our goal is to provide developers with a set of tools to create projects that will create a better player experience. We try as much as possible to not guide or hinder the creative process. While we remain as hands off as possible we do, at times, need to step in to ensure projects don’t have a negative impact to players. That being the case, we care about the developer community as well as the players they develop projects for, so if you have questions let us know as soon as possible and we’ll be happy to provide guidance. Please note, by following these guidelines and eventually getting your application approved, it means we’ve approved your application for a production API key. We don’t give individual projects a stamp of approval, but rather ensure they don’t conflict with our player-focused policies.
The goal is to enrich the League of Legends community and provide a better player experience. If your project may lead to a negative player experience please talk to us before it’s too late! There are some things that we're flexible on, but there are also some things we take a hard stance on.
If you have an idea that you think might fall within a gray area feel free ask us in your project's application. Make sure to include a description and the goal behind your project, and then post your question as an App Note within the application. We’ll be happy to provide you with feedback and work with you to achieve your goal without conflicting with policies we have in place to protect the player experience.
