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The old system had a lot of categories, some of which were redundant, not useful, or simply out-of-date.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.

New Zilean passive Q feel and responsiveness tuning recommended items

Zilean Banner Single

20thCenturyFaux Final PortraitIt’s time for time!

Zilean’s passive has been a weak point for a while now, and his Q had numerous little things that felt “off” about it. Those are past-tense sentiments. When the PBE updates, the new stuff will be in! This update is all about visceral satisfaction. The Q should feel better to use and the passive gives allies XP in a much more hands-on way. If any of you fine folks have the chance to check it out on the PBE, I’d love to hear what you think!

For Time Bomb, we’ve updated the attach logic, tweaked the animation timing, given it a new attach particle, fixed a bug where it would appear to ‘flicker’ on landing, and generally made the way it interacts with the game world more consistent and satisfying. None of these changes by themselves are likely to stand out, but taken together they should improve the experience of using Time Bomb significantly.

For the passive, it’s new! Behold!

Time in a Bottle

Zilean stores time as Experience at a rate of X per 5 seconds.

When he has enough Experience to finish an ally’s level, he can right-click them to impart it. Zilean receives as much Experience as he gives. Cannot be used in combat.

Does what it says on the tin. While the passive is off cooldown, Zilean sees indicators letting him know how much more XP he needs to finish someone’s level; when he has enough, there’s a line indicator to show him he can activate it. Hi-five a level into your buddies! Zilean gains the same XP as he gives and banks XP faster the higher level he is, so he wants to use it as often as he can. By being higher level mid lane he has slightly more XP to hand out, by being with an ADC bot lane he has persistent access to an ally. At level 18 Zilean no longer needs any XP for himself so the amount he gifts his allies effectively doubles.

These changes help establish Zilean’s identity, both thematically and in gameplay. Thematically, Zilean’s typically had a lot of interesting and unique elements, but has fallen short of the epic power expressive of time magic. Some of his spells do reach that height–Chronoshift, the Time Bomb stun, and to a lesser extent the 99% value on Time Warp. By giving him direct, visceral control over one of the fundamental forces of the game, he solidifies the stature that befits him as a time mage.

In gameplay, Zilean’s support side excels against assassins/divers and in a protect the carry role; in this, he is typically overshadowed by Lulu, who shares his solo/bot switch capability and who can defend her ADC without the dps interruption that Chronoshift’s revive brings. His utility mage side often overlaps with Orianna, a perennial generalist who can provide utility from a carry role and who also capitalizes on melee teammates. Between these two, Zilean’s unique elements are his superior synergy with juggernauts via Time Warp, his amazing lategame control scaling, his massive zone control (compared to Lulu), and his mid-game roaming (compared to Orianna).

Time in a Bottle gives him a capability that’s totally unique in its own right and further accents the things that separate him from other champs. Juggernauts typically care about levels much more than ADCs and the passive rewards him for roaming. It won’t solve all of Zilean’s challenges, but it helps the time mage float in the right direction.

Lastly, we’ve added a rec item page for mid; players can toggle between the mid and support rec items by clicking the down arrow on the tab title. The mid page displays by default–generally, the newer players are the ones who use rec items and mid lane is a much more forgiving place to play the Zilsta.

Foxy grandpa indeed. All this stuff will be on the PBE soon, I’m especially eager to hear how the changes feel in live games!

Can Zilean use his passive while his teammate is farming minions

20thCenturyFaux Final PortraitIt only counts whether Zilean is in combat, and combat with minions doesn’t count.

Items like Steraks Gage make Total AD scaling better than Bonus AD

Meddler Final PortraitBase AD being significantly more appealing on some types of champion than others is something we’re trying out as a lever for better item design. Something we’ve struggled with in the past is creating items to help out some classes or positions because of the way other classes/positions would take better advantage of them (a pain some junglers for example probably recall well, given some past uses of jungle items by laners before the need to at least take Smite to do so). In this particular case base AD/total AD ratios are things we’re looking to focus on juggernauts much more than mobile melee.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

There are already mobile melees with Total AD ratios Irelia Riven

Championship Riven Banner

Meddler Final PortraitIf items like Sterak’s become problems on characters like Irelia and Riven we’ll look at whether we can shift them to bonus scaling instead of total, rather than necessarily having to nerf the items in question. Bonus versus total AD is a tool we’re looking to use as a way to distinguish different classes somewhat, rather than an old way versus new way thing.

Will we be seeing long lore entries for every new champion from now on

Jaredan Final PortraitIt’ll vary a little, but essentially this is the planned format moving forward for every Champion, including all currently existing ones. It’ll take us some time, but we’ll get there.

Follow Up Banner

Jaredan Final PortraitEach new champ will be getting one on (or very near) release. Separate teams are developing the longer character intros. Narrative folks embedded on the product teams Champ and ChampUp will work on longer intros for the champ they are focused on, another team is working purely on small edits (removing mentions of IoW. for example) and also writing full pieces such as we did for Bilgewater. The discipline (Narrative) makes sure we’ve got good communication on how those different endeavors are working together.

Have you considered writing a more unified culture for Ionia

Jaredan Final PortraitI think it will be the exact opposite of a unified culture. Ionia isn’t a small island, it’s pretty huge. There will necessarily be a lot of diversity due to landmass—it’s not as big as Valoran, but there’s plenty of room for different landscapes and people.

You’re spot on about the lack of history beyond the Noxian war. A few of us were speaking about this very topic yesterday. That’s something we know we need to develop.

The Freljord’s past, present, and future is very much on our minds. You’ll see development on that, just not right now.

Will we finally learn more about Mordekaiser

Mordekaiser Single Banner

Jaredan Final PortraitWe’re doing a lot of thinking around Mordekaiser. He’s going to be rather important, don’t worry. That importance might not be completely apparent right away, but it will be. Oh yes, it will be…

Are you considering nerfing Vayne

Vayne Banner

Meddler Final PortraitWe’re currently testing a small reduction to Vayne’s starting AD, our belief being that Vayne’s currently got too strong a lane for how powerful her late game is (with the strong late game a defining feature of hers and a strong lane not intended). That nerf’s deliberately being kept small given the changes to a number of marksmen and marksmen items in the coming preseason and the belief that we’re currently seeing a solo queue meta that’s very favorable to Vayne (lot of tanky dudes to fight). Post preseason disruption we’ll then assess both Vayne and marksmen in general, see where changes are or aren’t needed.

[ Link to Post ]

 

Can Vayne and KogMaw both exist in the same meta as tank killers

Meddler Final PortraitOur belief is that there’s room in the tank killer space for both Vayne and Kog, since they offer pretty different takes on it. While both are really effective against high health targets, and have at least some capacity to shred or ignore mitigation, they’re pretty different otherwise. Kog’s got a decent amount of poke, even with an AD build, has much greater average attack range come late game and offers some team utility (shred, slow, vision). He needs to be protected pretty carefully though, getting a lot of value from speed boosts and peel in particular, so places demands on his team’s comp. Vayne by contrast’s got high sustained mobility and functions well independently (she’s got a number of duelist traits). She brings very little team utility however, and lacks both AOE and ability to affect enemies outside of her auto attack range.

Whether or not the two are are appropriately balanced, relative to each other and other marksmen, gets a lot of debate, we’re pretty confident there’s enough room within the space of ‘tank killing marksmen’ for both Kog and Vayne though.

Why does Kassadins Force Pulse E require charges to be cast

Kassadin Banner 1

Meddler Final PortraitKassadin was created long before my time at Riot, some benefits I can see to the charge system though:

  • It allows Kassadin to use his E significantly more often in team fights than some 1v1s, giving a champion with strong duelist power a boost elsewhere
  • It modifies how favorable some match ups are for Kassadin, giving him an edge against certain opponents and therefore adding a bit of extra depth to the decision of when to pick him or not, without getting into hard counter territory.
  • It adds a small amount of extra decision making to both Kassadin’s play and his lane opponent’s (value of next spell cast changes slightly in some circumstances if it’s the one that allows an E cast).

Now, if Kassadin were to be buffed, we certainly could remove that gate on his E, that would add power to him. Initial reaction personally though is that it’s a mechanic that creates some optimization and adds a little bit of distinctiveness in some circumstances, so if we were to add power there would likely be more interesting ways to do so that created, rather than removed, gameplay.

Are any changes planned for Zilean

Zilean Banner

Meddler Final PortraitWe’ve got a few tweaks for him planned for somewhere around 5.21-5.22. Looking at some small responsiveness improvements to his Q (attach logic and feel improvements), plus we’re exploring some experiemental stuff with his passive (still giving XP to allies, but potentially in a way that generates at least a little more interaction on the Zilean player’s part).

Lets talk about the Server Skin

CptStupendous: Hey everyone,

I want to give you all an update on where we are at with the regionally-inspired skin.

Back in 2013 when the server first opened there was a history of offering a regionally-inspired skin as part of a server launch. We had some discussions with the skins team to do this for Oceania, but it soon became clear this would take a long time and we didn’t want to hold up the launch, so we unlocked Pool Party Ziggs as a bonus for coming over to the new OCE server.

We messed up soon after that by saying that a server skin would also come out.

resize

We went through an exhaustive process of coming up with ideas internally and reading every single boards/Reddit/social media post we could find. These ideas were then workshopped and taken through the standard skins criteria.

What made this process so challenging was trying to come up with an idea that represents all of Oceania, while also making sure it resonates with players no matter where they live. Themes like Dropbears, Ned Kelly, Kangaroos, Kiwis, and hundreds of others were where we went initially (we even started concepting on some of these). But the issue is that it would really only represent one of the countries that make up OCE and we needed something that represented everything. This took way too long and that sux.

There was also an expectation that this skin would be available for free. We really should have clarified this earlier for everyone. Because we already offered a free Pool Party Ziggs for everyone who transferred before 13 July 2013, we’re not going to unlock another free skin.

What will be happening is the regionally inspired skin will be discounted to 50% off only in OCE with all funds raised in the first two weeks from OCE going to charity. The type of charity will be chosen by a vote and be between:

  • Environmental
  • Animal Rights
  • Humanitarian Relief Efforts
  • Medical Services/Research

There will be more information about this process in upcoming posts after the skin hits PBE, but we wanted to share this news with you now.

If you have any questions about any of this please ask them below.

Reminder Third Party Applications

Riot Cluvie Final PortraitHey there, Riot Cluvie here for the Risk team. We’d like to provide some insight into how we work with the Dev Relations team to determine which apps are and aren’t allowed.

Quick preface: third party applications are sometimes difficult to classify, and we know that can make it hard at times to find consistency in what we do and don’t allow. We’ve tried to stay flexible in our decision making to keep up with the community’s innovation, but the lack of clear policy surrounding the use of unapproved apps just generates confusion. So with that in mind, we’d like to set fair expectations by calling out some features that definitely aren’t okay.

To reiterate our stance on 3rd party applications from about a year ago:

> No software should interfere directly with the in-game player experience between when you press “Play” and the end of game screen.

It’s been said before, but we absolutely don’t like applications that provide measurable player advantage. If there were ever any modification that were to become so standard as to be required for competitive play, the integrity of our environment just wouldn’t be viable. You shouldn’t ever have to go digging for add-ons just to stay competitive. Some examples of measurable player advantage include:

  • Exposing information that’s intentionally obfuscated (cooldowns or timers)
  • Taking actions on your behalf (botting or scripting)
  • Drawing conclusions for you (predicting enemy positions)
  • Otherwise altering your field of intelligence (zoomhacks or global ult alerts)

For now, custom models and artwork sit firmly in a “use-at-your-own-risk” category, but we’re keeping an eye on them. We can’t optimize for assets we don’t develop, and if they do become a concern in the future (ie. they provide measurable player advantage), we’ll take action based on the stance we just discussed.

Gray areas aside, there are definitely applications which are blatantly not okay, and while the number of players in this space are very low (think a fraction of a percentage), we remain vigilant and have been handing out punishments to those who show patterns of consistent abuse. Suspensions will ramp up in duration across multiple offenses and will be accompanied by ranked reward removal where applicable.

Hopefully this post hasn’t come across as too doom-and-gloom! The third party ecosystem is full of devs making awesome applications that don’t run afoul of any restrictions. Our goal today is just to ensure we’re being clear on our end to provide them with peace of mind as they continue to innovate.

Does this mean you guys are starting to detect scripters

mirageofpenguins: Can’t be too explicit into when or how, but I’ll keep this as informative as I can:

Yes.

[ Link to Post ]

 


What if 3rd party devs handed Riot their applications for approval

Sargonas New PortraitThis one is more up my alley than her’s, so I’ll chime in. (My team handles the 3rd party developer program)

It’s a good idea and something we have explored in the past. Ultimately however we’ve made the call (and least for now) to not dive into such a program. The problem is that the internet (links) and software (dev apps) are highly dynamic. What we review and approve on one day could the next be highly dangerous, either because the Devs pivoted in a new way, because their code was infiltrated (much like the recent security flaw that hit WeChat and many other common mobile apps due to malcious code snuck into 3rd party libraries they use), or multiple other concerns.

The amount of resources it would take for us to police this sort of ecosystem constantly to ensure that the “safe” list is 100% always safe is simply too large, especially when you factor in the damage possible by the ONE time that something snuck by. (For comparison, Apple has HUNDREDS of people who review apps for approval 24/7.) Instead, we prefer to create rules that say “if it fits within these policies it’s ok to use, in a policy sense, but the security and safety of your system and account are at your discretion.” This is also why we prefer to highlight and support web apps and tools that are cloud based, and not ones that require you to download software to your system. (It’s also why the most recent API dev challenge required all valid entries to not include downloaded components as well.) Truth be told, people SHOULD be scared about using these (downloaded) software, and we will always highlight that risk and concern. A lot of bad people out there want access to your info, and would love to use the popularity of league to further that agenda given the chance.

Werent Curse Voice and Razor Comms approved by Riot for use

Sargonas New PortraitI know it may sound like I am mincing words, but i think it’s important to point out that the link you shared of my post does not have an actual “approval” of Curse Voice in it. They key phrase included is “Because of this, the latest revision of Curse Voice (version 6.1.X) and Razer Comms (version 2.1.X) no longer violate our current guidelines. “

In short, I clarified that it no longer violated the policies, I did not however give it a clear “approval”, and I even addressed this later in the thread elsewhere by stating that we did not keep an approved list nor intended to. As Applications can always change by their developer without warning, it’s better/safer for us to state what does/does not comply with the rules than it is to give something an “official seal of approval” which we might then awkwardly have to retract later due to unexpected changes.

[ Link to Post ]


Follow Up Banner

Riot Cluvie Final PortraitWe will not be maintaining a list of applications that might be approved or denied, because honestly, we’re just not ever going to be able to continually audit every service or function for player security, especially in this ecosystem where devs so frequently improve and expand their apps. And just to clarify, Curse is not “100% approved” specifically either, though it is okay to use. We only spoke about it specifically by name to clear up confusion around the fact we did initially prohibit its use, but we want to make sure it’s clear that it is not “100% approved” as we do not make that statement about any particular app.
