  • published the article Champion & Skin Sale: Begone Vile Magics

    This sale will be running from March 12th to March 15th.




    I will have my revenge. A reckless mage set me alight, and one with a biting axe struck me while I sought slumber. I once had peace, but now my gnawed and twisted bark torments me. Even the saplings were not spared. I know the ones that attacked me. The third of their party left a trail of litter behind them. I would punish their imprudence, but the attack has left me weakened. I’ve hired a team to follow the trail of my assailants.

    • Cryocore Brand is the reckless mage we seek. His trademark blue flames mean that he should be easy to spot, but be wary. This mage is mine to destroy. The bounty for bringing him back alive is 487 RP.
    • The axe-wielding attacker is known as Barbarian Sion. I would break his axe before his eyes. He should be taught not to defy nature. There is no escape. His bounty is 487 RP.
    • The useful litterer, Grungy Nunu, has also transgressed against the forest. He did not attack me, but his damage to the forest should also be punished. The price on his head is 487 RP.





    • Yorick is essential in this effort. My enemies will be in need of his services. You, too, can count the Gravedigger as an ally for 440 RP.
    • Fiora craves a good scrap. I’ve always been fond of her rapier, much too thin to damage a trunk like mine. It’s not often I can count a blade wielder as an ally. Her services come at 487 RP.
    • I’ve been hacked branch to stem, so I’ve enlisted a barbarian of my own. Tryndamere will cut a swathe through my enemies for 292 RP.





    The hunting party will track down the reckless mage and his accomplices from March 12th to March 15th. They’ll learn that nature can be a real Mother, hahaha.

    Champion & Skin Sale: Arcane Asylum

    The new sale has been announced. It will be running from February 22 to February 25



    • Behind you! Heehahaha! Watch out, summoners! It seems someone forgot to properly secure the asylum, and all kinds of crazy kids have been spotted running amok! Maybe I am Mad Hatter Shaco, or maybe you’re hallucinating. You’ll have to come close to find out. 487 RP
    • It was all Mad Scientist Singed’s idea, you know. That crazy old bean had mapped and timed the guard’s route to a tee. He flung the poor old dear against our cell door, and with a quick twist, had unlocked and initiated our escape. 487 RP
    • We danced and cavorted our way through grey halls and clawing hands, but then - DISASTER - a blast door! During our attempt to find an alternative escape, we found Mad Scientist Ziggschewing through his padded cell. Three may be a crowd, but the claustrophobia was a brief irritant before our little yordle chum was able to shred the blockade to ribbons. 487 RP




    • Ah the sweet smell of freedom! The taste of air! The scent of fear! Lose the getup and gain another and I’m just plain ol’ Shaco, wandering the Fields of Justice with a skip in my step and a shiv in your neck. You wouldn’t run from me because you wouldn’t see me coming. Heehee! 395 RP
    • Singed my boy! What’ll you do with your get-out-of-jail-free card, hmm? Mix, mix, no doubt? Run, while you can! No-one in their right mind would dare chase you through your poison clouds. 292 RP
    • The moon burns brighter than normal tonight, but why? No - that silhouette! Diana can’t possibly have come to stop me! If I slip away now, perhaps I could avoid her lunar rage. I’ll leave this little box for her just in-case she decides to give chase. 487 RP





    We’ll not stick around for long, summoners, so move like the wind if you want to catch any of us before we slip beyond the midnight veil. You’ll have from February 22 to February 25 to stop this crazy train. And then, just like that, we’ll be gone forever.

    Improved Health Bars, Coming Soon to a League Near You!

    We have already seen this change on the PBE for a few weeks, however Xelnath hit the forums with what looks to be the final version. 

    Hello Summoners, 

    Since the start of Season 3, there has been a dramatic increase in available health across champions. This has required us to revisit our assumptions in what information needs to be clearly conveyed to players. So we've updated the champion health bars to handler higher health.

    Here you can see how the original health bars worked:

    Once Amumu passed 3,200 health, the notches stopped increasing and it is very hard to count how much health an opponent has. 

    Here, Amumu is modelling the new health bars:

ID:	620772

    When you cross the 1,000 health threshold, a full, dark tick now appears. This makes it easier to see how many thousands of health your opponent has. 

    While we tried many, many iterations, we chose this one because it balanced between familiarity (no need to re-learn what 1 tick means!) and clarity past 2,000 health. 

    What do you think?

  • published the article The News Roundup: Morello on Fiora Buffs, League of legends on Mac, More on Sejuani, The League Update, and More


    PBE Patch and Thresh Live

    A lot of important news hit today, make sure you did not miss out.


    Morello on Fiora Buffs

    We agree with the W blocking on-hits. We're going to try and test this 

    are you talking about things that actually have like a flight animation before hitting? i always wondered why some things would trigger on W but other things that made even more sense wouldnt.
    The division currently is purely technical - we're going to look at breaking that division and making it block all associated effects of an attack - instead of just the auto-attack damage. This would mean things like Bear Stance's stun or Jax's bonus damage on Empower would not hit Fiora.

  • published the article Visual Upgrade: Annie, the Dark Child



    Hide your combustibles! The Dark Child herself is receiving a visual upgrade in an upcoming patch, and will soon be taking names and melting faces more brilliantly than ever before. 



    This update brings a brand new model as well as improved textures, sounds, spell effects and voice over to Annie and all of her skins. But the pain doesn’t end there, because Tibbers is also badder and more bear-like than you’ve ever seen him. The same care and attention has turned everyone’s favorite ursine firebrand into a high-def, rampaging monstrosity, ready to scorch Annie’s foes across the Fields of Justice.

  • published the article New League System Coming Soon in Ranked

     Riot just announced some sweeping changes in the way that ranked play is going to work in the near future.

    In Season 3 we’re making some exciting renovations to ranked play. At the heart of the update is a new league system that provides more challenges for competitive players and a greater sense of progression for newcomers. You’ll find an overview of how they work in the infographic below. You can also join us for the reddit AMA on Wednesday, 1/16 at 12:01 PM PST and ask your question live. 



    Winning ranked games earns you League Points that help you move up the rankings in your league. As you acquire more points you’ll have the opportunity to fight your way into the next division, or even into a new league at the next tier of competition. Each triumph brings on new challenges and tougher opponents, as well as rewards at the end of the season. Top 5v5 ranked teams that reach the Challenger tier even have the opportunity to go pro in Season 3.

    We’re looking forward to beginning a new era in competitive League of Legends and seeing who will rise to the Challenger tier. If you still have questions about leagues check out the following FAQ or leave us a comment on the forums.
