PROJECT: Ekko, Ashe & Katarina have received their limited loading screen borders; no news on how to obtain them yet, but if the promo is identical to last year’s, you’ll get them for purchasing the PROJECT skins during the first week of sales.

PROJECT: Yasuo has also received a limited-edition border; no news on how to get it yet (speculation: the skin will go on sale and everyone who buys it or has bought it before the sale ends will get the border).



The existing PROJECT skins received updated to their limited-edition borders; the stylized inner border now wraps tighter around the picture.

RiotRepertoir Button Rioter Riot Repertoir: Generally, I really liked what I saw from the reduced width on Javelin Toss. I’m not sure if 20 is the exact correct width at this point, but it looked like if someone tried to dodge it reasonably well, they would in most cases. With tweaks to her mana costs and cooldowns, Nidalee can spam spears that do good damage if she wants to, but they’re going cost her quite a bit of the blue bar to do so. I’ve increased her mana pool by a bit, but lowered all her Health Regen and Mana Regen stats. Tuned correctly, she won’t just have infinite mana with a Chalice due to the lower Regen stats. Additionally, now that she’s not bursting people quite so hard, I put some resists on Aspect of the Cougar so she can get in there and mix it up with similar resists to other melee characters. To do this, I took some off her Armor per Level so that she remains quite squishy in ranged form.

Keep the feedback coming. I’ve seen a lot of good stuff just watching you guys play her over the last few days! – Repertoir
