NEW FIORA INCLIENT LORE

To complement her gameplay & visual rework, Fiora’s received a new short client entry:

 

”I have come to kill you for the sake of honor. And though you possess none, you will die just the same.” The most feared duelist in all of Valoran, Fiora is as renowned for her indomitable will and haughty pride as she is for her skill with the blade. She was born to Demacia’s House Laurent, a once-proud family whose reputation was tarnished by the actions of her father. In an unprecedented move, Fiora challenged him to single combat and, upon winning, took control of House Laurent. Defying the Demacian establishment, she has set about restoring the reputation and pride of her family name, one duel at a time.

 

 

TWEAKS TO NEW HUD

Cooldowns on the new HUD now fill the entire icon, not just a circle inside it:

PBE Roundup Patch 5 14 Banner

 Patch 5.14 will hit live in the early hours of July 22nd, assuming there are no delays. Here are all its contents:

 

General

Champion Updates

Balance

Store Content

Visual

Featured Game Modes

Miscellaneous

 

 

HUD UPDATE Banner

All HUD elements have received a visual and functional overhaul. Here’s how the new HUD functions:

 

The basic layout is similar, but positioning of certain elements has been tweaked. The item box now rests on the right side of your spells bar.

Hud Update 2

 

Stats have been relegated to a pop-in box on the right side of your Champion portrait. From left-to-right and top-to-bottom: Attack Damage, Ability Power, Armor, Magic Resistance, Attack Speed, Cooldown Reduction, Auto Attack Range, Movement Speed.

Hud Update 1

 

The menus follow a similar visual pattern. Note that their functionality is still the same. Here’s the visually updated shop & options menu:

Hud Update Options Hud Update Items Menu

 

Two buttons have been added next to the minimap – an Options menu shortcut and a toggleable lock/unlock camera feature.

Hud Update 5 Hud Update 6

 

Speaking of options, in Interface you can choose to have your minimap on the left. This will swap the positioning of the minimap and the chat:

Hud Update Map Left Hud Update Map Right

 

The scoreboard is again brought up with TAB and displays similar information as before. Items are now arranged by cost and you can drag-and-drop champions in the scoreboard in whatever ways you like (match up Support to Support and ADC to ADC, for example). Another new feature is a counter for how many towers each team has destroyed.

Hud Update 10

 

Note that you can still see Summoner Names and you can mute other players, but to do so you have to hover over the Champion’s portrait in the TAB bar. In regular view those aren’t displayed.

Mute Button

 

Your teammates’ portraits will appear above the minimap. A filled green dot means they have their ultimates up; a blue one signals an ult being channeled.

Hud Update 12

 

Leveling up spells is now followed up by a fancy animation:

Hud Update 9

 

When you can’t cast spells for some reason (CC, Teleport, etc.) the HUD will gray out your spell bar and it’ll also put crosses on spells / active items.

Hud Update TP Spells

 

While on cooldown, spells will have both a standard countdown and a circular dial that will show how close you are to having a spell off cooldown. If you don’t have the mana to cast a certain spell, it’ll be marked with a blue tear symbol:

Hud Update 11

 

Pressing “C” brings up the rest of your Champion’s statistics. From left-to-right and top-to-bottom: Health regen, Mana (Resource) regen, Armor Penetration, Magic Penetration, Life Steal, Spell Vamp, Critical Strike Chance and Tenacity. If you swap your map to the left, the stats panel will also shift to the left.

Hud Update 7 Hud Update 8

 

The recall bar has received streamlined visuals and now has a countdown timer:

Hud Update Recall

 

While dead, you’ll have a countdown meter both on your Champion’s portrait and on top of your minimap. All respawn timers are displayed above your minimap in realtime.

Hud Update Death

 

Lastly, CTRL + F will once again bring up your ping & FPS in the upper right corner:

FPS Counter

 

 

CHAMPION UPDATE GANGPLANK

Gangplank has received a mini-gameplay rework, coupled with a complete visual overhaul.

Destroying a Powder Keg instantly refreshes Trial by Fire and grants Gangplank the Movement Speed bonus. Parrrley cannot activate Trial by Fire.

POWDER KEG E

 

Powder Keg Final Icon

Powder Keg [ New E ]

Cost: Free || Cooldown: 18/17/16/15/14 seconds for a charge, maximum of 2 charges

Places a powder keg that can be attacked by Gangplank or his enemies. If Gangplank destroys a keg, it explodes in an AoE blast that slows enemies by 40/50/60/70/80% for 2 seconds and deals 80/110/140/170/200 bonus physical damage to Champions. This damage ignores 60% of armor. Other casks within the zone will chain explode, but will not deal additional damage.

If an enemy destroys the cask, it defuses the explosion and grants gold. The health of kegs decays every 2 seconds, and that rate is increased at levels 7 and 13.

Ranks in Cannon Barrage [ R ] increase the maximum amount of Powder Keg charges to 3/4/5.

 

Gangplank E

Cannon Barrage can be upgraded up to three times.

Death’s Daughter fires an initial mega-cannonball in the center of the area of effect.
Raise Morale gives allies within the area of effect additional move speed.
Fire at Will increases the rate of fire over the duration of Cannon Barrage.

NEW MODE BLACK MARKET BRAWLERS

 

L4T3NCY Final PortraitYo! ^o^/

It’s that time again. :D We’ve been hard at work on this one and can’t wait for you guys to get crackin’ in the next featured game mode, “Black Market Brawlers”. This is one of our most complex FGMs to date, with multiple mechanics and a treasure trove of new content to absorb. So buckle in and let’s break it down.


 

Black Market Brawlers

TL;DR: Purchase illegal Black Market items and use golden Krakens to recruit new brawler minions as you vie for dominance on Summoner’s Rift!

Players: 5v5
Map: Summoner’s Rift
Pick type: Blind Draft

 

KRAKENS


Golden Krakens are a new currency you’ll earn to spend on hiring and upgrading your brawler minion.

Earn and spend Krakens to hire the brawler minion of your choice, then upgrade them however you want.

Krakens are acquired by:

  • Every 60sec = 1 Kraken
  • 1 kill = 2 Krakens
  • 1 assist = 1 Kraken
  • Baron/Dragon = 1 Kraken per team member (5 total)
  • Counter jungling a large monster = 1 Kraken

Destroying an inhibitor won’t summon a Siege Minion but instead, dramatically buff all the Brawlers in that lane.

 

 

THE BRAWLERS

There are four types of brawler minions. Each game you will spend Krakens you’ve earned to hire one brawler minion type of your choice, then upgrade him as you see fit throughout the game. Once hired, your brawler will replace a regular minion and spawn in every wave of all 3 lanes for the rest of the game. Each brawler minion has 3 upgrade paths (Abilities, Attack & Defense) you can pursue to customise them how you want. Upgrades can be purchased from the new “Brawlers” tab in the item shop at fountain using Krakens.

 

IRONBACKS


Melee: Tanky siege

Initial hire: Your Ironback takes 25% reduced dmg from enemy turrets.

  • Lv 1: Your Ironback deals 175% dmg to enemy structures. Gains a shield that blocks the next basic attack from a champion or a turret. (Shield CD 10sec)
  • Lv 2: Your Ironback deals 250% dmg to enemy structures. While the shield is active, it takes 35% reduced dmg from minions.
  • Lv 3: Your Ironback deals 325% dmg to enemy structures. The shield CD is reduced to 3sec and it now takes 60% reduced dmg from minions.

 

RAZORFINS


Melee: Champion pursuer

Initial hire: Your Razorfin has 100% bonus attack speed.

  • Lv 1: Upon aggroing an enemy champion, it will pursue them endlessly. While attacking enemy champions your Razorfin has 100% increased movement speed and ignores unit collision.
  • Lv 2: Each time your Razorfin hits an enemy champion, it applies a mark. On the 3rd mark, Razorfins deal 300% damage to the target.
  • Lv 3: Two Razorfins will spawn for you in each wave.

 

PLUNDERCRABS

Ranged: Champion harass

Initial hire: Your Plundercrab shoots an additional shot at a nearby champion with +150 attack range but 50% damage.

  • Lv 1: Your Plundercrab has +50 attack range. Gains a stacking 20% attack speed buff (up to 150%) for 3sec every time they hit an enemy champion.
  • Lv 2: Your Plundercrab has +100 attack range. Deals 150% dmg on hitting enemy champions.

Known issues:

— Some placeholder SFX

We’re looking forward to seeing the outcomes of a mode as deep as this one. Do you hire brawler minions that enhance your team’s strengths (“Let’s get some Ironbacks so we can siege down towers!”) or exploit the enemy team’s weaknesses (“they have terrible wave clear.. Razorfin rush!”). The Black Market items will also completely change champ viability for multiple roles. I’m sure you guys will find crazy new combos/synergy that we haven’t even thought of! o.O

Please report any bugs you find in here. As always, thanks for helping us test PBE guys. ^_^

UPDATED CLIENT LORE

Gangplank, Graves and Twisted have received new backsentences:


GANGPLANK Mini banner

“As unpredictable as he is brutal, the self-appointed reaver king known as Gangplank rules Bilgewater through a mix of fear, violence, and cunning. Where he goes, death and ruin follow, and such is his infamy and reputation that the merest sight of his black sails on the horizon causes panic among even the hardiest crew.”


GRAVES Mini Banner

“Malcolm Graves is a wanted man in every realm, city-state, and empire he has visited. Tough, strong-willed, and above all, relentless, through his life of crime he has amassed (then invariably lost) a small fortune.”


TWISTED FATE Mini Banner

 “Twisted Fate is an infamous card sharp and swindler who has gambled and charmed his way across much of the known world, earning the enmity and admiration of the rich and foolish alike. He rarely takes things seriously, greeting each day with a mocking smile and an insouciant swagger. In every possible way, Twisted Fate always has an ace up his sleeve.”

The HUD update ready to go live with 514

Rayven New PortraitAfter an extended stay on the PBE, we’re pushing the HUD update out to the live servers alongside patch 5.14! Check out the HUD update microsite for the full story, but if you’re already familiar with the initial changes and just want to know what’s changed since the new HUD hit the PBE, then read on!

Here’s what’s changed – in a large part thanks to your feedback – since the HUD update said hi to PBE:

  • Teammate ult timers – we’ve added in timers that indicate when your allies can use their ults! Before the update, this was just represented by a binary green light, but you’ll see the ult timers fill up with the update, meaning you can more accurately figure out when it’s time to wombo.
  • Teammate summoner spell timers - hit the tab key at any point and you’ll see if your allies can use their spells, and, if not, how long until they can.
  • Teammate mana bars have returned – we left out allied mana bars with the update, thinking they weren’t super important. We were wrong, you guys let us know, and they’re back in now.
  • Persistence - if you open champion stats or latency display during a game, it’ll persist between matches.
  • Level up ceremony – we added a bunch of animations and sounds to make sure you know when you ding.
  • Spellbar clarity - made some pretty hefty changes to the shape, color, and animation of cooldown, loss of control and out of mana to improve readability.
  • Minimap changes - game time feels like it belongs near the minimap because timing is usually related to map objectives, but ultimately playtests and feedback have shown it’s a more natural fit in the top corner.
  • Visual style – we’re all for minimal, but we may have overshot it. We’ve since tried to squeeze in more magic through texture work and animation.
  • Accessibility - added camera lock and options buttons back in.

We’re planning on rolling the HUD update over to live with patch 5.14. We’ll target non-ranked queues first to make sure nothing goes boom, then, if we’re ship-shape, add the update to ranked a few days later.

We’re super excited to get the new HUD out to you guys! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
