You can find additional teasers on the PROJECT minisite. Similar to last year, you can see blueprints of the weapons the champions’re using.

You start by typing one of three words: FREEDOM, UNITY or AMBITION. Each word will then have three floating circles that contain a phrase or a weapon blueprint:

 

Here’s Kat’s teaser and the blueprint for her daggers:

AURELION SOL STAR FORGER

 

aurelion-sol-wallpaper

 

CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE PASSIVE

AurelionSol_PassiveThree stars constantly orbit Aurelion Sol, dealing magic damage and applying spell effects to enemies they strike.

 

 

 

STAR SURGE Q

AurelionSol_QAurelion Sol fires the core of a newborn star in a target direction that explodes—dealing damage and stunning all nearby enemies—upon reactivation or once it travels beyond his stars’ maximum orbital range. Aurelion Sol can travel alongside Starsurge, and by keeping it close he’ll nurture it, growing it in size so that it damages and stuns a wider area when it explodes.

 

 

CELESTIAL EXPANSION W

AurelionSol_WAurelion Sol pushes his stars out to his outer ring, significantly increasing their power. Celestial Expansion costs mana to cast and drains mana every second the ability is toggled on. Once he toggles the ability off or runs out of mana, Aurelion Sol pulls his stars back.

 

 

COMET OF LEGEND E

AurelionSol_EPassive: Aurelion Sol builds up increasing movement speed as he travels continuously in the same direction, and loses speed on sharp turns. Some of this speed is stored away as Escape Velocity stacks, which are lost entirely whenever he takes damage from an enemy.

Active: Once Aurelion Sol maxes his Escape Velocity stacks, he can activate Comet of Legend to pull in his orbiting stars and take flight, traversing over terrain for a long distance. He cannot turn once his course is set, and enemy damage will bring Aurelion Sol back to earth, restoring his orbiting stars.

 

 

VOICE OF LIGHT R

AurelionSol_RAurelion Sol shoots out a long wave of starfire in a target direction that damages and slows all struck enemies. Nearby enemies caught in the blast are also knocked back to Aurelion Sol’s outer ring.

How far off are Shacos and Evelynns visual updates

Evelynn Single Banner

Meddler Final PortraitWe did do some exploration into a possible Shaco direction a year or two ago. That was a gameplay only update that didn’t hit the mark at the time however, so got put on hold (it was some opportunistic work to see what was possible in some free time, rather than a prioritized project). Evelynn we haven’t looked into a major gameplay update for since her rework years ago. I do think we’ll need to take a look at how stealth/stealth detection works again sometime in general though (possibly as part of an assassin class update at some point).

As far as VUs go I’d expect both to be pretty sizeable projects given the age of their current models/anims/VFX etc. Taric’s our current priority, and Yorick’s the likely full relaunch after that. After that it gets less certain. There’s some argument for Shaco or Eve certainly, some other champs we’d really like to tackle too though (Urgot and Warwick for example).

What happened to Galios update

Galio Single Banner

Meddler Final PortraitWe pulled those changes because they weren’t hitting the mark, in terms of solving issues on Galio or making him more satisfying to play. For one thing there’s not really any available power budget for an alternative passive. Galio’s not popular at present, but he’s pretty effective in the average game, so we don’t have space to add power to him without pulling it elsewhere.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Why doesnt Galios shield heal the ally its cast on

Meddler Final PortraitI’m not 100% certain as to the original intent, Galio was designed before my time at Riot. I’d be fairly sure the goal was to keep Galio further forward in fights by locking the healing to him, rather than having him potentially lower on health himself and therefore hanging back poking and buffing allies.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Will Galio be a part of the immobile mage rework this year

Meddler Final PortraitWe’ll be looking at more standard mages for the mage update mid year, rather than hybrids like Galio (mage/tank).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

 

Would you consider Vladimir and Swain the Juggernauts of the Mage class

Swain Banner Single

Meddler Final PortraitVlad/Swain lack the range, and in some cases the mobility, of other mages certainly, and get extended damage patterns and health sustain in exchange. That’s fairly similar to the trade offs a lot of juggernauts make, so yes, if that’s what you mean I’d agree with you.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Rework Cassiopeia entirely but keep the debilitation theme in her kit

Cassiopeia Single Banner

Repertoir New PortraitWhat does “debilitation” mean to you? I see suggestions like this come up from Cass players pretty often, but it’s usually not followed by much more than wanting DoTs to be emphasized on the kit, and Twin Fang to be de-emphasized. Do keep in mind I’m not saying this is incorrect. However, I do hope that if we were to do poisons or “debilitation” better, it would manifest in a way that wasn’t just stronger DoTs. Unique debuffs? Time delayed afflictions? More CC? Is it simply that you want your Q to be stronger in lane?

Please do keep it civil from this point forward. I’m interested in what’s going on here, minus a lot of the aggressive nature (though I understand it to a degree, to be fair).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Were just asking for a few Cassiopeia tweaks before her next rework

Repertoir New PortraitIt’s not exactly what you’re asking for, but I put in some changes to Cass this last week that should make her no longer cancel her Movement or Attack orders when casting Twin Fang. It’s not something that could ever be data-mined, so it may not appear on PBE, but it should be there. Assuming it gets through QA bug-free, it should be there for 6.2. For those unfamiliar, this treatment was also given to Ryze a few patches after his release, and it seemed to make his play a bit smoother.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Can we have the QoL lifebar change where the entire DoT is shown

Repertoir New PortraitThat sounds like something that new tech would need to be created for, so it doesn’t seem like a quick easy thing at the moment, unless there’s an internal workaround that could do it that I’m spacing on.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

 

Can we see some of Cassiopeias past mana cost and sustain nerfs reverted

Repertoir New PortraitI’m not really one to field buff requests, sorry. If there was something about her gameplay that mechanically wasn’t functioning, I may be in line to help in the immediate, but despite her low win rate in solo queue, the fact that Cass saw pro play as recently as this week does suggest she’s not incredibly far off from a pure power level perspective.

[ Link to Post ]

 

Follow Up Banner

Repertoir New PortraitBalance and health aren’t really the same thing. Champions can be balanced without being healthy, and they can be healthy without being balanced.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

 

Why dont you nerf the Champions who see pro play constantly

Repertoir New PortraitBecause we don’t take such a binary approach to the matter.

Regardless, it would be great if this conversation could move back toward directional changes for Cassiopeia, and away from game balance. I came into this thread with the objective of learning what kinds of directional changes players are interested in for Cass.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Shouldnt the majority who dont compete on a pro level be your target audienc

Repertoir New PortraitHonestly, it feels like a bit of both to me, where the allowable power level of a champion is something like the maximum of their power level in Solo Queue and their power level in competitive play. When the discrepancy between those is too great, we run into issues, issues that are a frequently a reason for doing Champion Updates. Ryze has some of this going on at the moment, where hisallowable power is regulated by the fact that he’s a competitive power pick despite being sub par for most players.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Have you considered making a champion that actually BREAKS terrain

Meddler Final PortraitWe’ve talked about terrain destruction abilities a fair bit and do think there’s some pretty cool gameplay opportunities in them. Making such abilities look good enough’s the biggest challenge remaining at this point (still some technical and design issues to solve, but of a smaller scale). Given the way our maps are made there’d be a lot of work on the art side needed to support such abilities. I’m hopeful we’ll get there at some point, definitely won’t be in the short term though.

[ Link to Post ]

 

Follow Up Banner

Meddler Final PortraitIt’s not so much the programming side, as it is making the destroyed terrain look good (rubble of broken walls, destoyed trees, appropriate ragged edges for still standing terrain etc).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

 

How about terrain passing Have you considered making a flying Champion

Meddler Final PortraitSome form of ongoing flight on a champion at some point’s pretty likely, and mainly a question of finding the right gameplay fit, rather than technical limitations. Would be a really different ability though to terrain destruction of course (changing one characters options a lot versus changing both teams’ options a lot).

When will the Team FIRE Diana skin be released

Diana Single Banner

Vonderhamz Final PortraitThere’s lots of work to do on her right now, since she just recently got picked from all stars, but I assure you she will be coming out – we’ve just got to make it super awesome first. I’ve always wanted to make sounds on a skin for her. Sorry on the lack of specific dates, but you’ll hear more as it’s getting developed!

Is there anything you think would be awesome for this aesthetic?

With the addition of Dynamic Queue why is there still no voice chat in LoL

[ Note ] Today (Jan. 19th), Riot will issue a statement whether the new Champion Select will be used for Ranked queue this season. Stay tuned!

Lyte Final PortraitTo be clear, I think you’re making a few assumptions. It’s pretty universally agreed among industry experts that voice chat introduces some amount of toxicity into an ecosystem or game; however, that doesn’t mean we are opposed to it.

We definitely understand the importance of communication in a competitive team-based game, and every time we talk about voice chat, we mention that we’re open to it, we’d just want to change some of the basic designs of voice chat to mitigate some of the known issues.

Whats the device on Jhins shoulder supposed to be

Jhin Single Banner

Kindlejack Final PortraitThe Bravo Ray designed the appearance of Jhin (concept artist =/= gameplay designer) and was excited about the idea of a ‘mystery box’. You see this creepy thin guy who is asymmetrical because of a huge shape on his shoulder, you have no idea what it is… until the final act.

What it is is four huge magically infused artillery shells racked up on a hextech accelerator built right into his mechanical shoulder (he’s sacrificed much for his art). When attached to Whisper (and the extended barrel for accuracy) it forms the final piece in the biggest, most powerful gun Runeterra may have ever seen! Kinda reminds me of Shen in Kung Fu Panda 2.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

How does Ekkos time rewind work in terms of his backstory

Ekko Single banner

FauxSchizzle Final Portrait

A big key thing to understand about Ekko is that his Z-Drive doesn’t always work the way he wants it to, mostly owing to the fact that it’s homemade hex-tech that runs on the exotic properties of a shattered crystal.

In terms of Parallel Convergence, (story wise) is what happens when you wrinkle time too much — sometimes it tears and your parallel self lends a hand to seal the breach. I mean, he’s the boy who shattered time. That can have some unintended consequences.

With Phase Dive, Ekko basically blinks out of the timeline, returning at opportune moments.

As you can tell, he’s probably made (and broken) a few Z-Drives.

The Timewinder feeds off his Z-Drive. However, he initially designed it to have an entirely different function — probably a smoke or flash bomb — but… it didn’t quite work as intended. In fact, Ekko’s sort of unsure about how it works, but it works reliably enough (and with no lingering effects) for him to be cool with chucking it around all willy-nilly.

Thanks for making me think about this stuff. One of my 2016 goals is to write Ekko a long bio, and you’re inspiring me to put it before my other work that has deadlines (because I am a triple-A rated procrastinator — heck I’m supposed to be making my wife bolognese for dinner at the moment).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Can we have more information about the Hexatech villain from Ekkos trailer

resize resize

WAAARGHbobo: If i remmember correctly, he’s an enforcer for one of the piltover owned companies in Zaun. Never had a real name, was called hexa-thug or something in script.
I think a sion skin for him would be dope. Giant arm acts as (and maybe even transforms into) the axe. Prob couldnt be a champ though as he occupys a space already covered by urgot and sion.

Patch 5.15 will hit live in a few hours. Here are the official notes:

 

Champion Updates

Store Content

Miscellaneous

 

Don’t know when the patch will hit live for your region? Here’s the schedule:

Patch-5-15-Maintenance-Banner

 

Scarizard Final PortraitGreetings, summoners.

Welcome to Patch 5.15, the small one where we sit back and let the game catch its breath for a sec. What with all the updates recently to jungle items, game balance and burning tides (thanks, Miss Fortune), we figured it best to enjoy a lighter patch where we focus on some pro-play outliers and watch the ever-evolving metagame take shape. So kick your feet up, this one’s on the house.

Diving a level deeper, we do have some sizable changes for Teemo to give him more control of his destiny in fights rather than setting up minefields and hoping folks’d walk into it. If you’re someone that wishes we’d delete him instead, we suggest you try out Fiora, who’s got a set of updated Demacian duds and slick new moves to help you take out the furry little monster in style. Random aside: did you know Teemo’s last buff was 3 years ago? We thought you’d like some trivia dressing with your foreword-salad. We’ve never really thought of the foreword as food before, but salads are healthy (and so is context).

That’s about everything for 5.15. Check out our HUD update post to read up on the juicy feedback-driven changes being made (or head to the patch notes below), as well as our new ward-skin selection tech, and we’ll see you next time!

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.

Here is Gangplank’s new Champion Select quote:

 

 

UPDATED INCLIENT LORE FOR GANGPLANK

”I was cutting throats and sinking Noxian war galleys when you were still pissing your britches, boy. You don’t want to take me on.” As unpredictable as he is brutal, the dethroned reaver king known as Gangplank is feared far and wide. 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.

 

UPDATED INCLIENT LORE FOR MISS FORTUNE

“‘The bigger the risk, the bigger the bounty.” Beauty and danger: there are few who can match Miss Fortune in either. One of Bilgewater’s most infamous bounty hunters, she built her legend upon a swathe of bullet-riddled corpses and captured ne’er-do-wells. The booming echoes of her twin pistols in the port city’s reeking wharfs and scavenger shanties are sure signs of another warrant from the Bounty Board being settled.

Animation and Audio

  • Shortened and pulled back on many animations including “level up”, “just off cooldown”, and toggles
  • Scaled back many audio cues

Layout

  • CS, KDA, and Team KDA has rejoined game time in the top right
  • Scoreboard improvements including larger and clearer summoner spell and respawn timers

Misc

 [ Note ] The new HUD will also replace the old one for Ranked when Patch 5.15 hits live. You can read the announcement HERE.

Ward-Selection-1-1024x640 Ward-Selection-2-1024x640

 


INSTANT FEEDBACK SYSTEM

As mentioned at launch, the Instant Feedback System was originally tuned conservatively to avoid false positives. Now that it’s been in place for a few months we’re ready to start taking the training wheels off. In particular, the system is now more likely to punish hate speech after just one incidence.

 


CHAMPION MASTERY EMOTE

When Champion Mastery launched a while back, we decided we’d wait and see how the rank 4 and 5 emotes were being used before making them visible to the enemy team. Fast forward a few months and, after adding in a light safeguard to ensure players can opt out of emote spam, we’re ready to let you show your achievements off to everyone in your matches!

[ YOU CAN’T IGNORE MY BADGE ] The rank 4 and 5 Champion Mastery emotes are now visible to the enemy team

[ WAIT YES YOU CAN ] Muting a player now hides their Champion Mastery emote (both ally and enemy)
 


Bugfixes

 

  • (Black Market Brawlers) Enchantment: Teleport‘s active effect can no longer be bugged to cast without a cooldown
  • Rift Scuttler now drops a soul
  • Upgrading a trinket no longer resets its cooldown (This was fixed in 5.14 but we forgot to document it. Sorry!)
  • Using a consumable item no longer temporarily disables Devourer’s effects
  • Galio now properly gets assists when shielding allies with W – Bulwark
  • Spirit Guard Udyr now plays VO when he kills a Rift Scuttler
  • Restored custom E – Shunpo VFX for Sandstorm and Slay Belle Katarina
