Texture Rebalances


Don’t know what “texture rebalancing” means? Here’s a summary of red posts on the topic:



[ Note ] Sorry, PBE is still down and I can’t wait for it to come back up (living in Europe). I’ve uploaded screenshots from the Model Viewer, but that’s about all I can do. If you want to see the updated Champions and Skins in an in-game environment, check out [email protected]’s coverage of the update, they have most of the content covered.
