Since the dawn of yordle kind, when the ancient ones first discovered the killing power of blowguns and boomerangs, blood has been spilled in the name of everyone thinking they can take out the little guys.
When the decision to scorch the earth was made, yordles knew they’d need safe havens. Armed with the knowledge and new, toxic weaponry of their greatest inventor, they dug in and did what a cruel world forced them to do.
In the early days of the Yordlepocalypse, they took refuge in enormous (for them) underground shelters, and when they emerged, only desolation greeted them—all except the revered inventor who locked himself away from the society he saved. Rumors swirled that his bunker would never reopen, until one day, it did.

Mana cost back to 40 (as per live). Current assessment (off very limited testing) is that the refund mainly offers power when Urgot's behind, given he'll last hit with AAs when doing well in lane. Cost increase probably unnecessary as a result, will go back to increase later if this proves problematic however.
No longer shifts the Urgot player's camera to Urgot's position on completion of ult
Now grants Armor/MR immediately, rather than after 0.25s
Urgot now ignores unit collision for 1s after completion of ult
Turns out the W can already be used mid ult cast, was planning to add that in and found out it's already possible.
Still assessing mana scaling on W as a possibility.

There’s some changes coming to the community beta next week; check out a live preview here: boards.na.leagueoflegends.com. It’s new and shiny, but it’s mirroring the content from the current design. Any discussions or comments you create will populate in both versions.
Welcome to Boards beta!
It’s been a while since we introduced the Community Beta. Over the months since the CB debuted, we’ve been posting and commenting, lurking and reading feedback. Today, we’re rolling out what the team has been working on. We’re still in beta, and we’ll continue to respond to feedback and make changes. As a result, the Change Log works just like the Patch Notes, just with 100% less Pwyff. Whenever we make a change to the boards, you’ll find it neatly annotated here with an explanation of why we did it. Let’s saw into the first edition of the Boards Change Log.
So generally speaking, we’ve integrated a new visual style that enhances clarity and addresses a ton of player feedback. We’ve added enhanced moderation tools including action notifications you’ll hear more about below. For those of you who prefer a “flat” or chronological viewing format, we’ve overhauled the way it works on the boards. With additional improvements to discussions and commenting, we’re attempting to solve the problems you identified and build a platform that fits what the community needs.
Boards (formerly known as “Communities”)
It was kind’ve presumptuous for us to call these “communities” as if we were making them. With the new name and style, we took the opportunity to establish the boards as gathering places for content and discussions.
We’ve changed, added, and removed some boards (listed below) from the Official Boards list. We’ve also updated all of the Guidelines for each board to help clarify general culture and etiquette.
“Site Feedback” has been renamed “Boards Feedback”
“Live Gameplay” has been changed to “Live Gameplay Balance”
“Summoner’s Rift” has been renamed “Maps & Modes”
“Riot Official” has been renamed “Announcements”
“Fan Creations” has been renamed “Community Creations”
“Pentakill” has been removed, but will return as part of a new board we’re planning in the future
We heard loud and clear that accurate and fast moderation is really, really important to a ton of you. Equally important is knowing why an action has been taken, and knowing that your reports are reaching real people. We’ve added a number of tools to our moderation toolkit, and poros.
-Not Pwyff (note: there are no poros)
We’ve focused a majority of our time lately rebuilding our moderation team and approach. Our biggest addition to this version of the boards is Moderation Action Notifications. Now, whenever a moderation action is taken within the Boards you’ll be notified in your boards profile.
Moderation Action Notifications
You will receive Notifications for the following actions:
When discussions or comments are deleted
When you are suspended from the boards
Report button added on all comments and discussions
All reports go into a queue monitored by our moderation team 24/7
Participating in discussions is literally the main function of the boards, so we’ve concentrated a number of our redesign efforts improving embedded media, attachments, share functionality, and thumbnails. Sprinkle in some additional improvements to creating discussions, and finish with clarity and a more defined visual hierarchy.
Before our recent focus on moderation, the actual discussions that would happen on the boards were some of our highest priorities. We needed to expand the supported media types, and make it easier to add attachments. Taking into consideration feedback on the Community Beta, we simplified sharing to Twitter and Facebook. There’s a number of other discussion-related improvements, especially when creating a discussion whether from the homeboard or within a board.
Improved Embed media (a few supported examples below)
Share to Twitter and Facebook from individual discussions
Thumbnail/image support on boards list
You can now create discussions from the boards home screen
You can now select the board you want to post to during discussion creation
Improved clarity and visual hierarchy
Cleaned up attachments
Creating discussions is great and all, but being able to comment and join in is also kinda crucial. We’ve removed the reply limit and made it easier to see new comments when you’re in discussion view. For those of you who prefer to view all posts in chronological order (like for role-playing--that’s for you, Kaz) you can now switch to chronological view and the boards will remember your preference. This is only the first step towards the completion of Skynet, so we’re okay with it.
We got a ton of feedback on how commenting worked on the Community Beta. Some of the biggest changes include the removal of the reply limit, and tweaking the way Rioter comments look for readability. Feedback regarding necessary features often centered on “flat” or “forum” view options, so we’ve added a suite of enhancements like a Quote button and the ability to select Chronological view as your preferred way to browse.
Removed reply limit
Flat View is now ‘Chronological View’ with the following changes:
Comments listed from oldest to most recent
Added Quote button
Replying is now included in this view
Reporting now available within Chronological view
When switching to Chronological view, this selection will be remembered as you browse the rest of the Boards
New comments are now easier to see in Discussion View
Bugs happen, we exterminate like Blitzcrank when we can. Not much more to add. We’ll update the Bug Fixes section pretty frequently. If you find any bugs or have additional feedback, please head to the feedback section here and create a new discussion.
The following bugs have been squashed:
Attachment difficulties in IE
Speed issues on boards listing and when searching
Hover on player name sticking to the wrong place
Minor issues within Rioter Comment box
Chronological view info not updating as fast as Discussion view
Permalink acting weird in URL strings
Profiles were getting confused, basically dopplegangers in your profiles
This list is focused on the champions that have the most success in solo queue. In simple terms this list is a ranking of who I suggest you play right now if all you care about is winning games. Above is an accompanying video on the top two champions in each role that elaborates on exactly why they are the best choices right now.
Chances are you may disagree with where I have placed your favourite champions but remember that everyone on this list is at least strong in the current meta and there are plenty of viable champions who are not listed here.
I'm not going to include commentaries or guides next to each champion but if you're interested then you can find videos for most on my youtube channel along with a bunch of other content! https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePhylol
So wait, does that mean that from today on you will be deactivating all of the skin codes, or the ones that are purchased and activated from today onwards?
Edit: Also how are we supposed to prove that we got the skins legit? It's not like everyone keeps the skin cards after activating them..
We won't be deactivating skins that you've already redeemed on your account using a code. What it means is that we'll be deactivating all codes that currently exist. So anything that hasn't been redeemed yet cannot be redeemed using the code in the normal way.
If you've recently attended an event and received a skin code from a Rioter, and you haven't had a chance to redeem it yet, you can contact support. They will need to see proof that you own the code card (e.g. a photograph).
Just wanted to let you know that Sona's Update will be off the PBE for a few days. This is simply due to how our builds progress through development, and she'll be back very soon with more changes, more polish and a number of bug fixes.
Sorry for the disruption! I'll be leaving this post stickied so anyone who got in a last last game has a place to give us their thoughts. Thanks to everyone who has already helped so much already!

The sounds of splintering wood stir Soulstealer Vladimir from his slumber as his carriage rumbles to a halt. He throws open the door, gliding from the carriage’s velvet interior into the moon’s faint glow. The pale features of his face dance under his amulet’s emerald glow as, step by slow step, he circles around towards his driver, dead in his seat and propped up only by the bolt through his chest.
“Pardon, sire. We’ll be having your purse now.”
Vladimir turns towards three cloaked figures, their swords glinting in the cool moonlight. The one who spoke steps forward, weapon raised. Vladimir sneers. He raises his amulet towards the would-be thieves, unleashing a torrent of spirits that tear through the first man, ravaging his body. The second bandit shrieks, agony etched into his face, as Vladimir pillages his very life force. The final thug’s eyes widen as the Soulstealer turns to him. With a smirk, Vladimir melts into the ground. The man tosses his sword aside and turns to flee, but it’s too late. He falls. Surrounded by the grasping souls of Vladimir’s tortured prisoners, they leech away the last of his vitality.
Reforming amidst the hollow shells of his attackers, a malicious smile spreads across Soulstealer Vladimir’s bloodless face. Four more for the collection.
Harvest the souls of your enemies with Soulstealer Vladimir, available now in the League of Legends store for 1350 RP (on sale for 975 RP through July 14).
Getting scammed sucks. Unfortunately the internet is full of shady people who take advantage of others. At Riot we strive to protect players from these scammers, and recently weve noticed an increase in fraud around 3rd party skin sites and skin reselling.
These sites promise limited edition skins for League of Legends, when in reality they acquire codes illegitimately and exploit players. They charge excessive prices (we found one skin for over $1,000!) and sometimes take payment and never provide the content. You cant predict the outcome, and no purchase is ever guaranteed regardless of what the seller says. To make matters worse these services typically use bots. Bots are lame to play with and chew up additional server bandwidth, negatively impacting everyone.
Riot is taking action against these scammers at the source. We are working with multiple payment processors to inform them of the situation and recommend they no longer process fraudulent payments from these sites. Additionally we will be deactivating all previously issued skin codes starting today. If you have a skin code that you acquired legitimately please send a request to Player Support and include proof of ownership. Wed be happy to help redeem the content to your account, but please note after 07/23/14 we will no longer be redeeming codes for any reason.
For more information about codes and how to send Player Support a request, check out our code cards FAQ.
