MINION CHANGES Banner

Just some bugfixes for minions and their wacky behavior.

The only one that’s worth calling out is the last one on the list – this was actually implemented in 5.22, and primarily helps melee vs ranged matchups with respect to basic attacks. Simply put, the ‘call for help’ used to be around yourself and not the enemy, meaning that when they’d harass you off the wave, your minions would often ‘pretend’ not to notice as they went about their business. Now minions are more courageous and will actively watch for enemy harassment.

Minions no longer freeze or awkwardly lock eyes with other minions

Minions now display how much bonus damage or damage reduction they have from the pushing changes implemented in 5.23

Minions no longer acquire new targets that are in the river or jungle, and if they enter the river or jungle they’ll refuse to acquire any target until they leave. (Implemented in 5.22 but undocumented)

Now additionally calls for help in a ring around your opponent when attacked near minions (implemented in 5.22 but undocumented).

 

 

NEW CHAMPION SELECT Banner

The New Champion Select is almost ready for live. It will follow a staggered release, with public testing for NA and TR beginning on January 13th. Below you can find a rundown of how the new system will work:

[ Note ] The new Champion Select will replace Team Builder. [ Source ]

 

Before you queue, you’ll be asked to pick your Primary and Secondary role. Logically, your Primary role takes priority in the matchmaking:

New Champ Select 1 New Champ Select 2

 

The queue interface is standard fair. The wait time is displayed at the bottom, rather than the top of the client and there are new visuals for the ticking time confirmation:

New Champ Select 3 New Champ Select 4

 

Inside the Champion Select, you’ll be placed on a 3D map of Summoner’s Rift, with an arrow-type indicator for your role:

New Champ Select 18 New Champ Select 5

 

I was Captain here, so I couldn’t ban. Instead, I could give a visual cue to teammates of what I wanted to play. This phase is a suggestive “I want to play this, please don’t ban it” type – if my teammates wanted to, they could’ve banned Yasuo, but I’ve shown them I want to play that Champion.

New Champ Select 7 New Champ Select 6

 

There’s a neat animation for bans, where the banned Champion’s portrait will disintegrate into shards. Here’s how it looks like for both allied bans and enemy bans:

New Champ Select 9 New Champ Select 8

 

Once banning is complete, picking resumes as is currently on live. The Champions picked (or hovered over) will be displayed in a circular shape. Once selected, they will play their Champ Select quote for everyone:

New Champ Select 12 New Champ Select 14

 

Here’s how the interface looks like if the player hasn’t picked a Champion yet, for both ally and enemy-side:

New Champ Select 15 New Champ Select 16

 

Once picking concludes, you can lock in your Champion or pick a different one. There’s also a new interface for your available skins:

New Champ Select 11 New Champ Select 10

 

The last part of Champion Select is a standard wait period to adjust your Masteries. Note the location of UI elements:

  • Bans at the top left and right;
  • 2D map with Roles and Champions picked on the bottom right;
  • Summoner Spells/Masteries on the bottom.

NEW CHAMPION SELECT Banner

The New Champion Select is almost ready for live. It will follow a staggered release, with public testing for NA and TR beginning on January 13th. Below you can find a rundown of how the new system will work:

[ Note ] The new Champion Select will replace Team Builder. [ Source ]

 

Before you queue, you’ll be asked to pick your Primary and Secondary role. Logically, your Primary role takes priority in the matchmaking:

New Champ Select 1 New Champ Select 2

 

The queue interface is standard fair. The wait time is displayed at the bottom, rather than the top of the client and there are new visuals for the ticking time confirmation:

New Champ Select 3 New Champ Select 4

 

Inside the Champion Select, you’ll be placed on a 3D map of Summoner’s Rift, with an arrow-type indicator for your role:

New Champ Select 18 New Champ Select 5

 

I was Captain here, so I couldn’t ban. Instead, I could give a visual cue to teammates of what I wanted to play. This phase is a suggestive “I want to play this, please don’t ban it” type – if my teammates wanted to, they could’ve banned Yasuo, but I’ve shown them I want to play that Champion.

New Champ Select 7 New Champ Select 6

 

There’s a neat animation for bans, where the banned Champion’s portrait will disintegrate into shards. Here’s how it looks like for both allied bans and enemy bans:

New Champ Select 9 New Champ Select 8

 

Once banning is complete, picking resumes as is currently on live. The Champions picked (or hovered over) will be displayed in a circular shape. Once selected, they will play their Champ Select quote for everyone:

New Champ Select 12 New Champ Select 14

 

Here’s how the interface looks like if the player hasn’t picked a Champion yet, for both ally and enemy-side:

New Champ Select 15 New Champ Select 16

 

Once picking concludes, you can lock in your Champion or pick a different one. There’s also a new interface for your available skins:

New Champ Select 11 New Champ Select 10

 

The last part of Champion Select is a standard wait period to adjust your Masteries. Note the location of UI elements:

  • Bans at the top left and right;
  • 2D map with Roles and Champions picked on the bottom right;
  • Summoner Spells/Masteries on the bottom.

UPDATED PLAYER REPORTS Banner

Neurocat New Portrait

Hey everyone,

Last month, we debuted upgrades to the Instant Feedback system (reform cards, improved chat restrictions and intentional feeding bans). Now, we’re continuing the overhaul by pushing out some improvements to the report system. We made two major changes to how you report someone:

The old system had a lot of categories, some of which were redundant, not useful, or simply out-of-date. After analyzing old report data and listening to community feedback, we winnowed the list down to seven types of behavior:

Sometimes a player might display multiple offensive behaviors in game – in the old system, it wasn’t possible to report them for more than one reason. With these upgrades, we’re allowing up to 3 categories to be selected when reporting a player. Keep in mind, selecting multiple categories doesn’t increase the severity of a report, so only select the offenses that happened in the game. In the future, players who falsely report others may face penalties. The more accurate the report, the better we can help players reform their behavior.

This should be hitting the PBE shortly. Please leave a comment if you have any questions.

LORE FOR SHADOW ISLE CHAMPIONS

New in-client lore has been released for most Champions from the Shadow Isles:

 

Hecarim Final Portrait

“Break their ranks and ride them down without mercy. Crush the living and feast on their terror.”

Hecarim is an armored colossus who charges from the Shadow Isles at the head of a deathly host of spectral horsemen to hunt the living. A monstrous fusion of man and beast, cursed to ride for eternity, Hecarim revels in slaughter and crushing souls beneath his armored hooves.

 

Kalista Final Portrait

“When wronged, we seek justice. When hurt, we strike back. When betrayed, the Spear of Vengeance strikes!”

A specter of wrath and retribution, Kalista is the undying spirit of vengeance, an armored nightmare summoned from the Shadow Isles to hunt deceivers and traitors. The betrayed may cry out in blood to be avenged, but Kalista only answers those whose cause she deems worthy of her skills. Woe betide those who become the focus of Kalista’s wrath, for any pact sealed with this grim hunter can only end on the cold fire of her soul-spears.”

 

Karthus Final Portrait

“Death is not the end of the journey, it is just the beginning…”

The harbinger of oblivion, Karthus is an undying spirit whose haunting songs are a prelude to the horror of his nightmarish appearance. The living fear the eternity of undeath, but Karthus sees only beauty and purity in its embrace, a perfect union of life and death. When Karthus emerges from the Shadow Isles, it is to bring the joy of death to mortals as an apostle of the unliving.

 

Mordekaiser Final Portrait

“All things must die… and yet I live on.”

The baleful revenant Mordekaiser is among the most terrifying and hateful spirits haunting the Shadow Isles. He has existed for countless centuries, shielded from true death by necromantic sorcery and the force of his own dark will. Those who dare face Mordekaiser in battle risk a horrific curse: he enslaves his victims’ souls to become instruments of destruction.

 

Thresh Final Portrait

“The mind is a wondrous thing to tear apart.”

Sadistic and cunning, Thresh is a restless spirit who prides himself on tormenting mortals and breaking them with slow, excruciating inventiveness. His victims suffer far beyond the point of death, for Thresh wreaks agony upon their souls, imprisoning them in his lantern to torture for all eternity.
