One tale tells of a woman, her sword forged in dragon’s fire, descending into an enemy enclave in the aftermath of a bloody battle. She leaped and slashed through hordes of foes, slaying captors and freeing their captives. Refusing to bow to those who would enslave the innocent, she stormed across the countryside, giving hope to refugees and the unprotected. Those who witnessed her crusade soon knew the truth behind the proverb, “There’s no shield like a Dragonblade’s sword.”

This was a snapshot of an earlier iteration and you will see more changes soon. All of this feedback and conversation is great though and I really appreciate hearing your perspectives.

 

Is something wrong with the AD ratio on his Q?

 

Button Rioter Vesh: Yes. the Ratio on Q is just flat out wrong. Really really really wrong. Please remember that PBE is a beta environment and some weird stuff comes and goes on there all the time.

State of Renekton

 

Renekton banner

Why is Renekton being changed at all?

 

 

Why nerf a Champion with a 50/50 winrate?

 

Vesh Button Rioter Vesh: So, even though Renekton’s win rate is pretty much exactly 50/50, that doesn’t mean that he’s in the best place he could be in. Right now his early game is extremely strong and he tends to fall off really hard late game as other characters (especially range AD) outscale him with items.

I’m going to be looking into doing some changes that takes down his early game dominance just a tad so that we can give him a stronger late game and also keep him from just shutting out most top lanes before level 9.

 

 

Is his sustain making him hard to deal with on top?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: I definitely think the sustain on Renekton in particular is a problem early and contributes to how he can consistently out-trade his opponent. Going to test out some changes with a slightly less powerful heal on Q initially that will scale back by level 9 to what it is on live currently.

 

 

Does he really fall off lategame?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: He definitely falls off late game (we have teh dataz).

 

 

 

 

Will Renekton get buffs in return for this decrease in heal and early damage?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: Like I said, his late game is weak so if we take away some of his power early that’s going to need to be added to his late game power. There’s a number of ways to accomplish this (raw stats, utility, etc) and it’s worth exploring all of them. One option that might work out well is giving his Q/E total AD ratios instead of bonus AD. Then his spells can keep getting more powerful with his champion level as he gains his AD per level. Not saying this is the option we should definitely go with, but it’s definitely one I’ll be taking a close look at.

 

 

Why decrease the heal, when it’s already capped?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: The healing cap makes it so you have to his literally 12 minions at once to hit the cap. It’s mostly to prevent abuse cases where a super wave is pushing and he could heal to full without the cap and also to make him not heal crazy amounts with an empowered Q in a teamfight where he manages to hit 4-5 people.

 

 

Will you make his Furious Slice and Dice ( E ) bonus useful?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: I would definitely like to do something with the E besides the shred. Most people use that accidentally while ulting and would rather have had an empowered Q. The shred can be situationally very powerful but is totally invisible.

A slow could be one approach, but I think it could also be really cool if we look at the dash itself, possibly giving it more length on empowered state, or maybe a third dash altogether if used with fury. Few options here, probably going to be testing a number of them.

 

 

Can you make his Passive more engaging or relevant?

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: I agree that his passive isn’t the most interesting thing in the world, but I’m not sure I want to risk changing a core system of his too much when the goal is to even out his power curve. Definitely something to look at it in the future, but I suspect that lowering his sustain early and possibly giving him some more damage after that point will make the passive a bit more meaningful.

 

 

Giving Slice and Dice ( E ) a third dash when used with 50 Fury will make Renekton even harder to deal with

 

VeshButton Rioter Vesh: It’s just one option that can be considered – in no way am I saying that’s the best approach or then one we should take.

It would be a tradeoff however. It costs fury so if you get the extra dash you will lose out on an empowered Q or a longer W stun.

What’s being done to help newer players get accustomed to the game?

 

boourns Button Rioter boourns: We do care a lot about the new player experience. There is a team dedicated to improving it! We’re experimenting with a bunch of things like a landing page for new players with some (hopefully ) relevant information about the game and having a different set of free to play champions for new players so we don’t have someone really complicated like Lee Sin or Jayce for new players.

 

 

Any plans to improve bots in general?

 

boourns Button Rioter boourns: Not really my specialty, but I know there are folks working on bot AI. I do not think harder custom game bots are part of the plan though. The custom bots are actually much “dumber” than the co-op vs. ai ones from what I understand because we can’t be sure what combinations of human/bot players there will be.

Summoner name clean up


Summoner Name Cleanup


In the upcoming patch, we’re introducing a new feature called the Summoner Name Clean Up.

Occasionally, we go through Summoner names and free up ones that have been inactive for long periods of time. From now on, the Summoner Name Clean Up will be automated. Based on when you played your last game and what your level is, you’ll have a period of immunity from name clean ups. Every name will initially be given 6 months of immunity and then granted one additional month for each level above level 6.

For example:

  • Levels 1-6: 6 months of inactivity immunity
  • Level 12: 1 year of immunity
  • Level 20: 1 year, 8 months of immunity
  • Level 30: 2 years, 6 months of immunity

If your immunity runs out, your name will become available to other players through the Summoner Name Change option in the store. If you log in after someone claims your Summoner name, you’ll be prompted to create a new one. To be clear, your name may be taken, but your paid content and game history will remain attached to your account.

It’s important to note that non-immune names can only be claimed through Summoner Name Change, and not by new players. This ensures the name will be used by an active player and not someone who decided they absolutely need Trevor, 7revor, and Tr3v0r Tha 5hr3dder. It happens more often than you’d think.

To make it easier to snag the alias you’ve always wanted, you can now purchase a Summoner Name Change for 13,900 IP. For players who prefer using RP, procure your new namesake for half off from January 14 to January 28.

With so many names freed up, capture yours today!
