      Pwyff Final PortraitGreetings, Summoners.

      Welcome to patch 5.12 – the one where we bring back AP junglers in pursuit of the ideal that is champion diversity (we are now imagining these patch note openers as very long episode titles). If you’ve gotten tired of us talking about diversity, a different way of putting it is that it all comes down to choice. Player perception is obviously huge when it comes to assessing what’s ‘viable’ in a game of League of Legends and, hopefully, through our efforts that viability choice comes down to personal preference and style, rather than straight up power. You’ll see this most epitomized in our introduction of the new Runeglaive jungle enchantment – an item that hopes to ‘unlock’ many AP junglers that, before, many felt were subpar for the position.

      Second up, we’ve got some defensive tree mastery changes rolling out to provide you all with just a little more meaning to your mastery choices. While these aren’t revolutionary in terms of how you should allocate your mastery points, we felt it was worth at least highlighting the changes to say that there are, flatly, more choices and better decisions to make. We’d love to get masteries to a place where you can feel like you’re making real decisions and optimizing just right for your own style, so hopefully these changes go along with that philosophy.

      And that’s about it for this patch! Be sure to check out our four new visual effects updates (and dev blog!) on the way out, and take a gander at our behind-the-scenes work on line missiles / skillshots. Ciao, friends!

      [ Link to Post ]



      Recoded Line Projectile Skillshots

      Most line projectile skillshots have been recoded to detect collision in a clearer, more consistent way. There’s some nuance here we’ll explain below.

      Long, technical story: we’ve been cleaning up our behind-the-scenes code for some time now, and our latest target is a group of abilities called “line missiles.” Think of line missiles as projectile skillshots. For example, Ezreal’s Q / W / R are all line missiles – his basic attacks are not. Before we explain that in a little more detail, let’s talk the changes; this recode should fix two key issues: one, we’re confident we fixed the bug where projectile skillshots would occasionally pass right through a unit and two, collision detection on skillshots should work based on a unit’s hitbox rather than the center of their model.

      That said, there’s a very big difference between being ‘called’ a skillshot, and being coded as one. Not all line projectile skillshots are created equal, and this is definitely the case here.

      Because we’ve been targeting code specifically, this change will fix many things butnot everything. Sometimes what seems to be a skillshot is really just a projectile minion (hi, Syndra). In other words, this is our first step toward cleaning up projectile skillshot coding, not the final solution. You should see more consistency with skillshot collision and hitbox detection such as skillshots no longer going through targets (that’s mostly what we’re focused on), but there will be outliers. Be sure to let us know if you see any issues, and we’ll have to parse carefully for what was impacted and what wasn’t (also accounting for that delightful placebo effect).

      Final note: because we want to roll this out in a safe way, this change will be turned on at a later point in time and in specific regions first so that we can monitor its impact. If all goes well, we’ll turn it on across all regions and let you know in the next patch.

      [ MAYBE THEY JUMPED IT ] Fixed most bugs with projectiles occasionally “passing through” an enemy champion (this may not fix all occurrences, see above for context)

      [ ARE YOU CALLING ME FAT ] Projectile skillshot collision will now be detected a bit sooner on most champions, as skillshots will be going by the edge of a unit rather than their center.



      Recall Changes

      Let’s be real: people will still die if they’re caught recalling with the shop open. The more important change here is that normalized recall window – a different way of putting is now all players should know precisely when they can stop an enemy recall and when it won’t work. Previously it was a bit randomized (although the window was very short), but now it should be the same timing. Every time.

      [ PAY ATTENTION ]If you had the item shop open while recalling and your recall is interrupted for any reason, your item shop will now forcibly close.

      [ TOTAL RECALL ] The window just before a recall finishes in which you can take damage and it won’t interrupt the recall is now normalized at 0.1 seconds (was previously random between 0 and 0.25 seconds)
