Don’t know when Patch 5.24 will hit live? Here’s the maintenance schedule for all regions:

Patch 5 24 Maintenance Banner
 

 

Scarizard Final PortraitGreetings, Summoners.

Welcome to patch 5.24, the last one of 2015. It’s been a wild ride with Cinderhulks, Juggernauts and Devourers in-between, but this is no time to get sentimental. It’s still preseason, there are still outliers to balance, systems to maintain and bad jokes to make.

Speaking of balance outliers, we’ve got a lot of balance changes below for champions you might not see often – let’s dive into that for a bit. Like preseasons past, we’ve traveled (via the diversity dirigible, naturally) to an entirely new ecosystem of champion balance, where many old “champion power” assumptions just don’t hold water. A moment of silence, please, for 4.20 Warwick and six-Cleaver everyone. New systems, masteries and items combine to make weak champions strong, strong champions weak, and Brand a god. So while it may shock you to see champions like Swain and Anivia nerfs, or Riven buffs (gasp!), keep in mind that we’re working off of as much objective data as we can.

Then there’s Soraka.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget.

With that out of the way, what else is there? Poppy’s looking cuter and more imposing than ever, Snowdown’s back and brought the Legend of the Poro King game mode with it, and we’ve put the finishing touches on our item and champion tuning before taking a balance break to January.

So, from all of us at Riot Games: good luck, have fun, and we’ll see you in 2016.

Here’s Poppy’s new Champion Select quote:

 

And here’s her short-form client lore:

 

”I’m no hero. Just a yordle with a hammer.” 

Runeterra has no shortage of valiant champions, but few are as tenacious as Poppy. Bearing a hammer twice the length of her body, this determined yordle has spent untold years searching for the ”Hero of Demacia,” a fabled warrior said to be the rightful wielder of her weapon.

 

Here’s Poppy’s login theme that will go live with Patch 5.24 (after December 9th):

Persistent Chats Upgraded

Limely: Hi, Everyone,

A couple months ago we rolled out persistent chat rooms onto the PBE. This was an early test for building the foundation for new social features we announced with the 2016 Season Update. As we officially move forward, we’ve updated the name on PBE to reflect that these “chatrooms” have evolved into our earliest version of clubs.

What are clubs? They are player-named, player-organized, and player-controlled social groups. The long-term goal is to help you head into games with the right teammates every time by helping you find like-minded players to compete with. We plan on building a whole lot more on top of the current functionality of clubs but right now we’re starting simple. Just like “persistent chat rooms”, you can own one club and be a member of three at any given time, with all the same moderation tools.

With this first update, you can now set a tag for your club that can be displayed in various places including your Hovercard, and more importantly, in game. Ranked team tags will still take precedence in ranked team games. Since you can belong to multiple clubs, you now have the option of setting a club to be active, which means that club’s chat room will open on login, and other players will see that affiliation.

We plan to push out updates to clubs as they become available (which means we’ll need to occasionally reset all clubs), so take a look and let us know if clubs make it easier to stay connected in League with friends!

Thanks,
Limely :3
p.s. We are playing around with colors on tags so please put up with the current atrocity for a day or two. :3

PATHING Banner

Reverting the minion pathing changes made so far in preseason.

We’ve made a few changes to minion blocking this preseason, targeted at making creep block more intuitive. When you get stuck in a minion clump you should be able to understand what’s happening, and your champ’s attempts to escape (or avoid) it should make sense as well. While these changes technically worked, they caused problems when interacting with other systems. We’re turning them off until those interactions are fixed.

[ EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN ] All minion pathing changes made in 5.22 and 5.23 have been reverted. We’re right back to pre-preseason while we work on a better implementation.



FIRST MINION WAVE EQUALITY Banner

It’s easier to get to lane without losing a minion

We made some behavioural changes to minions in the very first wave of the game when no enemy champions have interacted with them. Left to their own devices, the minions will spread damage evenly and avoid randomly focus-firing a single soldier. The goal here is that you should be able to more predictably realise whether or not you’ll lose a minion when you get to lane late. This actually went out in 5.23, but we figured you’d like to know!

[ FIRE EVERYTHING ] Minions won’t gang up on a single enemy minion when no enemy champions are present.



If you have any questions, feel free to ask me at @NoL_Chefo or e-mail me at nolchefo@gmail.com.

Here’s Poppy’s new Champion Select quote:

 

And here’s her short-form client lore:

 

”I’m no hero. Just a yordle with a hammer.” 

Runeterra has no shortage of valiant champions, but few are as tenacious as Poppy. Bearing a hammer twice the length of her body, this determined yordle has spent untold years searching for the ”Hero of Demacia,” a fabled warrior said to be the rightful wielder of her weapon.

 

Here’s Poppy’s login theme that will go live with Patch 5.24 (after December 9th):

Persistent Chats Upgraded

Limely: Hi, Everyone,

A couple months ago we rolled out persistent chat rooms onto the PBE. This was an early test for building the foundation for new social features we announced with the 2016 Season Update. As we officially move forward, we’ve updated the name on PBE to reflect that these “chatrooms” have evolved into our earliest version of clubs.

What are clubs? They are player-named, player-organized, and player-controlled social groups. The long-term goal is to help you head into games with the right teammates every time by helping you find like-minded players to compete with. We plan on building a whole lot more on top of the current functionality of clubs but right now we’re starting simple. Just like “persistent chat rooms”, you can own one club and be a member of three at any given time, with all the same moderation tools.

With this first update, you can now set a tag for your club that can be displayed in various places including your Hovercard, and more importantly, in game. Ranked team tags will still take precedence in ranked team games. Since you can belong to multiple clubs, you now have the option of setting a club to be active, which means that club’s chat room will open on login, and other players will see that affiliation.

We plan to push out updates to clubs as they become available (which means we’ll need to occasionally reset all clubs), so take a look and let us know if clubs make it easier to stay connected in League with friends!

Thanks,
Limely :3
p.s. We are playing around with colors on tags so please put up with the current atrocity for a day or two. :3

A: When you send your friend a Snowball icon, they will receive one of the four icons chosen at random. If they own any of those icons already, they will not get it again and instead receive an unowned icon and a one-win IP boost.

Q: Do my friends get to keep the Snowball icons I throw at them?

A: Yep! They will own that Snowball icon once you throw it at them.

Q: Can I send my friend all four Snowball icons?

A: Yes. You can send them up to all four icons as long as they don’t own them already.

Q: Can I buy myself Snowball icons?

A: You cannot buy yourself Snowball icons.

Q: Do Snowball icons count against my daily gifting limit?

A: Yes, but we’ve raised the limit to 20 gifts per day for the duration of Snowdown.

 

YOUR SNOWDOWN SHOP:

Q: What is your Snowdown shop?

A: It’s a new in-client Snowdown store outfitted with deals unique to you.

Q: How long will these deals last?

A: Each deal will be available from December 16 to December 30 at 23:59 PST

Q: How long will Your Snowdown Shop be open for?

A: Your Snowdown Shop will be open from December 16 to December 30 at 23:59 PST

Q: When I purchase a deal, does a new one take its place?

A: A new deal won’t take the place of any skin or champ you buy in Your Snowdown Shop.

Q: Can I get a different set of discounted skins and champs?

A: We’re only offering the current displayed skins and champs in Your Snowdown Shop.

Q: What happens if I purchase all of the deals from Your Snowdown Shop? Will it refill?

A: Then you’re all done! Once all available champs and skins are purchased, Your Snowdown Shop will be empty.

 

LEGENDARY SNOWBALL:

Q: How does this work again?

A: From December 23 until January 7 at 23:59 PST, whenever you pick up a Legendary skin, you’ll get a free Mystery skin. If that Mystery skin is a Legendary, you’ll get another Mystery skin and so on.

Q: Is there a limit to how many Legendary skins I could unlock?

A: Nope. You can snowball any amount of Legendaries if you continue to unlock them through Mystery skins until Legendary Snowball ends.

Q: What if I buy five Legendaries, will I get five Mystery skins?

A: Yes. Yes you will.

Q: What is a Mystery Skin?

A: Picking up a Mystery skin guarantees a random unowned skin worth 520 RP or more for a champion you own.

 

LEGEND OF THE PORO KING:

Q: How long will the Legend of the Poro King be available?

A: The grand Poro King will grace Howling Abyss all through Snowdown!

Q: If I have poro icons from last year’s Legend of the Poro King, will the poro skins carry over this year?

A: Yes! Your poro icons will work exactly as they did last year.

Q: Where can I find Legend of the Poro King?

A: The game mode will be available to select in the game mode queue of the client.

Q: I saw a PROJECT: Poro icon on PBE, will it be available for Snowdown this year?

A: Yes, the PROJECT: Poro icon will be available for Snowdown this year. We’ll updatethis site with it soon.

Q: Will the PROJECT: Poro icon have all the features of the other Poro icons?

A: Yes, it will be a Legacy icon that you can pick up for 250 RP during Snowdown. If equipped during a Legend of the Poro King match, the PROJECT: Poro icon will unlock a PROJECT skin for your poro pals within the game mode.
