Combat Text Adjustments

Xypherous Final PortraitWe’ve made some modifications to the way combat text works for this patch cycle.


  • Combat Text now scales up in size based on relative impact of the skill.
  • Champion abilities that deal damage over time or multiple hits now combine their damage into one larger ‘spinup’ counter style number.
  • Minor cleanup, especially around proc type effects or multiple types of damage happening in the same frame.

These changes are in polish / testing phase – feel free to drop comments or give feedback. Let me know if anything feels weird / obtrusive – if you can’t notice the feature at all or if you have any suggestions on further cleanup and polish we could do!

Mystery Gifting


Mystery Gifting


Mystery Gifting allows summoners to send their friends a surprise gift. There are two different kinds of Mystery Gifting during Snowdown this year. For 490 RP, you can send your friend a random Mystery Skin for one of the champions they own, OR you can send your friend a random Mystery Champion they don’t own. In either case, the gift will be worth at least 520 RP.



Which skins can be received from a Mystery Gift?


Any skin for any Champion that your friend owns is eligible as a Mystery Skin, as long as your friend doesn’t already own the skin and it’s currently worth 520 RP or higher and available in the store. This includes Legendary and even Ultimate skins! There are also some Legacy skins not for sale in the store that will be obtainable in the Snowdown Mystery Skin:

For a complete list of all the different skin types, check out our Guide to Champion Skin Types.



And Champions?


All champions that your friend doesn’t own valued at 520 RP or more are eligible.



What are the requirements for sending a gift to a friend?


  • The player receiving the gift needs to have been on your buddy list for at least two weeks.
  • If a player uses the /mute or /ignore chat command on someone, they will have to re-add the friend, and wait two weeks until a gift can be sent to that player.
  • The player receiving the gift needs to be at least level 10.
  • The player receiving the gift cannot be banned or suspended (this includes LeaverBuster, Tribunal, etc).
  • The player receiving the gift must have at least 10 unowned skins OR champions that they are eligible to receive, depending on which gift is being given.
  • The player sending the gift must be at least level 20.
  • You can only send up to three gifts every 24 hours*.
  • You can only receive up to three gifts every 24 hours*.

*After you reach your limit, you’re able to purchase a fourth mystery gift 24 hours after your first purchase, a fifth mystery gift 24 hours after your second purchase, and so on. The limit does not reset at midnight.



Can my friends receive a skin for a Champion they don’t own?


Nope, your friend can only receive skins for champions they already own. For example, your friend cannot receive Bad Santa Veigar if they don’t already own Veigar as a champion.



Can they receive a skin they already have?


Your friend can only receive a skin that they don’t already own. No duplicate skins will be added to their account.



Are gifted items refundable?


No, just like regular Gifting, anything received from the Mystery Gifting feature is non-reversible and non-refundable.



How long will Mystery Gifting be available?


Mystery Gifting will be available throughout the duration of the Snowdown event.



Can I give myself a gift?


Nope, Sorry :(



Any other gifting options aside from champions/skins?


Yes! Rune pages can now be selected as gifts in addition to skins, champions or Mystery Gifts.



New Summoner Icons


Giftwrapped Poro

Giftwrapped Poro


To earn the Giftwrapped Poro icon, you must win three matchmade games on Howling Abyss. Meaning, you must enter a queue (NOT a custom game), and win three games. For example, you can enter the Showdown queue or the ARAM queue, but you can’t create your own game on Howling Abyss and have it count towards your three wins.



Santa Gragas CookieSanta Gragas Cookie


You’ll earn this icon by sending any gift during Snowdown using the gifting (including Mystery Gifting) feature in the store.



Bad Gingerbread Veigar

Bad Gingerbread Veigar


To earn this icon, you must win a matchmade game as a premade team during the Snowdown event. For example, you’ll earn the icon if you and four friends queue up in Ranked 5s to do battle and emerge victorious, or if you queue up with a buddy and claim victory in a normal game. The key here is that the games must be matchmade against other players (so Co-op vs AI does not count).



Slay Belle Surprise

Slay Belle Surprise


Wear a Snowdown skin during the event. Any former skin or any of the three new skins will work. Skins from other holidays, like Kitty Kat Katarina, however, would not. Click Here is for the complete list of eligible skins


Snow TeemoSnow Teemo


When you unlock all four of the other icons, you’ll earn the Snow Teemo icon. Please be aware it may take up to three days after unlocking the fourth icon for Snow Teemo to show up.



Showdown Game Mode




What is Showdown?


Showdown is a Featured Game Mode where players battle in 1v1 and 2v2 fights on the Howling Abyss.



What are the rules?


Games will be played in the Blind Draft game type. Each team has the opportunity to ban out three champions, after which the game proceeds to a Blind Pick phase. After both teams have locked in their picks, there will be an additional period of time in which the enemy picks are revealed to each team – this gives players a chance to adjust runes, masteries and summoner spells accordingly before the match starts.

  • Enemy tower destroyed
  • 100 Creep Score achieved (in a 2v2 game the Creep Score of both players is added together)



What are the requirements to play Showdown?


You need to be Summoner level 10 or higher to participate in the Showdown.

Ryze’s terrible Win Rate


Ryze decoration

Why is Ryze such a difficult champion to carry with?



PhreakButton Rioter Phreak: The interesting thing is, his win rate actually heavily changes based on the skill level of the player. You can check this yourself by clicking the “Bronze” or “Silver” graph, and then clicking the “Diamond” one in ranked solo queue.

The running theory is that his mechanical complexity is actually fairly high. Players have to be able to constantly find and cast on targets with little down time for optimal effectiveness. Tendency to have Smart Cast on is also a big potential reason here.

I think there’s also a big chance that as player skill increases, people tend to build him more optimally. While there are a bunch of good caster items out there, the players that know to go Frozen Heart, not Athene’s, and Tear/RoA, not Deathcap, are getting more mileage out of him.

So for what it’s worth, it seems like he works perfectly fine for players who know how to play him optimally. I think the gap between optimal and sub-optimal play/builds on Ryze is probably higher than most other champions.



Isn’t Ryze easy to play, mechanically?


PhreakButton Rioter Phreak: I was too, except that it’s an easily statistically-backed fact.

I know for all of us playing in diamond or whatever it’s hard to put ourselves back to when we were newer at the game, but it’s just true. I play with my Bronze II friend sometimes, and yeah he just has really awkward item builds. He doesn’t click very quickly. He would suffer on a champion like Ryze, compared to someone like Renekton where it’s okay if you wait an extra second to press R or E. You’re still getting most of the effect out of that ability. This is a significant drawback to Ryze, however.

Even something as simple as smart casting saves a decent chunk of time in the grand scheme of things. Depending on the player, we’re looking at literally 25% damage difference by not putting his abilities back on cooldown as quickly as possible.



So he’s not about mashing buttons?


PhreakButton Rioter Phreak: Mashing buttons is a significant DPS loss. Weaving Q between each ability and tracking all your cooldowns while also orb-walking to keep up with your target is extremely important.

Heck, even the Riven Champion Spotlight stresses auto-attacking between abilities. I sat next to a guy who would always just QQQ immediately every time. Dude mains Riven. Believe it or not, MOBAs aren’t actually that easy to play. If they were, we’d all be Doublelift.

Heck, you’re in Platinum. Clearly you play a lot. Why aren’t you in the LCS? Seems like you can describe how to play every champion perfectly in two sentences.



What’s your take on Ryze’s balance?


ricklessabandonButton Rioter ricklessabandon: Just some quick thoughts on this:

  • Ryze is one of the more difficult champions to learn in the game—his skill ceiling is pretty high compared to his skill floor, and it’s often not obvious what players need to do to get better with him.
  • Ryze’s strength ‘at his best’ seems to be in an okay spot, but it’s hard to talk much about it since his picks in competitive are infrequent (making the sample size small).

What those points lead me to believe is that Ryze needs changes that better support his different spell rotations, and make it clear when you would want to do things one way or another. To be more plain about it: we’ll probably do Ryze buffs that look like miniature ability reworks instead of just making specific numbers larger/smaller, and those buffs will likely help out novice and intermediate Ryze players more than expert Ryze players.



Preseason Changes to Runes


runes banner

When can we expect the announced changes to Runes for next Season?



Where are the changes to Runes announced for Preseason?


ricklessabandonButton Rioter ricklessabandon: Runes are the pretty much the last major thing to change for the new season, so things have been quiet on that front while we shore up the initial batch of changes already on live. Currently most of my time is dedicated to helping do just that (specifically doing item work right now) so runes haven’t hit PBE yet.

Once we’re ready to put runes out on the PBE, there will be plenty of time to talk. :3



Will these changes weaken existing rune pages or force players to buy new runes?


ricklessabandonButton Rioter ricklessabandon: That isn’t a goal at all (and i’m really sensitive to the that apprehension) but if we do end up doing something like delete/refund mana marks, and those are the only marks you have, then it’s going to ruin your rune pages and force you to either buy new marks or play without any. I’d really like to avoid as much disruption to players as possible though, so hopefully scenarios like that are rare (and made to be as comfortable as possible to transition out of when they do happen).

If you’re worried about a nerf to armor seals forcing you to buy new seals, then i think it’s safe to stay your apprehension. The changes are aimed at making it such that taking something other than armor seals doesn’t completely screw you and your teammates over, not to try to make people stop using armor seals. That said, I think it’s much better to talk about specifics after we’ve posted PBE patch notes.

Riot Fixed


Categories: LoL News Tags: , , , ,

Welcome to Tribunal Cases of the Weak.  Every week you’ll get the best/weirdest/worst Tribunal cases.  As always, purple text is the accused, green text is the teammates, and red is the opponents. The title of each case is a link to the full Tribunal case, but don’t click through unless you’re ready for NSFW language.  Unsure of what the Tribunal is or how it works? Read Riot’s FAQ.


Case #5: The Dark Child

Playing Annie as a support is certainly unorthodox, but with team approval, anything can work.  It can be hard though, to tell if someone is just being unorthodox, or if they are trolling.  It’s always reassuring, though, when the player seems smart and mature:


Not the most encouraging sign.  Here is Annie’s score:


Not the best score, looks like she’s trolling.  What does this Annie have to say for herself?


Isn’t that supposed to calm people down?  In this case, it seemed to lead to a lot of raging, intentional feeding and attempts to solo Baron.




Case #4: The Soon to Be Exiled

You know the slash commands, like /joke or /dance.  This player had some commands of his own:


Obviously he’s trolling.  If you read through the game, you’ll find verbal abuse along with a healthy dose of feeding.  But there was more:


Yes, that’s a real channel; streaming the trolling of new players.  The only thing worse than this guy may be his viewers.




Case #3: The True Terror of the Void

This is a strange case.  Most trolls either believe they are innocent and are righteous in their defense, or they maliciously harass opposing players.  This troll trolls himself:


This player is not only asking for a report, he’s providing the necessary behavior.  He fed and he went afk.  If that wasn’t enough:


And it worked, he got reported.  And then the Tribunal gave him what he must have really wanted:

PunishTime Ban



Case #2: The Defeatist

This player created a self-fulfilling prophecy.  The moment he started losing, he thought there was no way to win:


And with his behavior, he ensured it:


Needless to say, his teammates didn’t appreciate his fatalism.

PunishTime Ban


Case #1: Worst Troll of the Week

This player didn’t get the lane he wanted.  This is what he had to say:


Believing that most low level players are “meta sheeps” certainly doesn’t help him get an unorthodox role.  The reports detail his behavior:


And what is his explanation for it?


Ah, yes.  The old “I’m banned on my main” excuse.  This is one type of player that the Tribunal quickly bans:
