Riot wants to bring more accessibility to League
Many players who are deaf or hard of hearing play League, and this new way to find out when an enemy champion uses their global ultimate serves to make the game more accessible.
In addition to these specific people, playing Riot Games’ MOBA without sound also provides relief from FPS drops. In other words, it improves game performance for those with weaker computers, but these players also did not hear when certain champions used their global skills and, therefore, this function will also be useful to them.
