All PBE updates for Patch 5.3 Cycle:

 

 

DJ Sona WIP PBE

DJ Sona’s now available! Since it’s an ultimate skin, I’ve broken down her preview into smaller sections.

 


Models

Concussive Stance

 

Kinetic Stance

 

Ethereal Stance

 

Here are a few examples of how transforming DJ Sona looks like. You can switch between stances at any time using either the /toggle chat command or by pressing CTRL + 5.

 

Recall Animations

For her recall, Sona hovers above her musical board and flies upward.

 

For her joke, DJ Sona’s musical board shuts down. She tries to turn it on, then shakes it and finally throws it on the ground. It then reactivates.

 

For her taunt, DJ Sona does a backflip, lands on her board and points in front of her.

 

For her dance, she does the Caramelldansen.

 

Her laugh is a standard laugh, though she does it more cutely.

Mattenth New PortraitHey everyone,

Last year, we introduced Match History to the web and soon we’re bringing a good chunk of that functionality to the client. While the web experience will remain the place to go for shareable (show-offable?) links, runes, masteries and item build orders, we’re bringing the lion’s share of Match History to the client:

  • 20 viewable matches, up from the previous 10
  • A more complete scoreboard that now shows trinket, creep score, and total kill and gold breakdowns per team
  • Match timelines with timestamped neutral objectives, tower falls, and kills
  • Gold advantage graphs
  • Kill maps that show the location of each and every kill for each player

This update shifts what types of matches will show up in the client. As a reminder, we believe competitive matches should be open information, so everyone’s ranked games (even Bjergsen ‘s) will be up for analysis through Match History. Your less tryhard normal queue matches will only be viewable by you and your friends, just like Match History on the web.

We still have a few minor changes to make before going to live and don’t expect this to make it into 5.3. We just wanted to put it on the PBE early to hear your thoughts.
