Update on Rengar's Rework, Two Designers Working on Sion

Hey Scruffy, here's a crazy idea I had, that I should probably email you about, but, let's throw caution to the wind.

[Disclaimer, this idea is half-baked and there might be a great reason to not do it]

Trinkets are about vision, right? What if instead of a ward, a scan or a clairvoyance, activating the bonetooth necklace gave you 4 seconds of the heat sensitive detection Rengar gets during his ultimate?
Dear Riotscruffy,
Why does rengar get priority over Sion?
To clarify, Rengar is not getting priority over Sion right now. I am personally working on Rengar, but there are two (yes two) other designers working on Sion as we speak. Sion is a big deal for us and we really want to give him the upgrade he deserves. Rengar may release before Sion, but that is not something that we know for sure yet.

Update time!

First off, the new Rengar kit is really fun and still feels like the Rengar we love. Both Scarizard and I have played some games on him and we are testing him evenly in top and jungle. Here are a few updates from our tests and your feedback:

-The second roar on W ended up feeling kinda clunky and messed up the flow of his play so we are now trying a version where W only does 1 roar but we are lowering the cooldown to let him get ferocity at a faster pace in long fights
-The passive now only decays when out of combat for 10 seconds instead of 10 seconds after an ability has been used. This helps him a lot in the jungle in keeping his stacks up going from camp to camp. It also just makes a bunch more sense as a player.

Esports Competition Ruling: Fining of Bjergsen

League of Legends Competition Ruling

Player: Søren Bjerg / Bjergsen
Region: North America
Date of Ruling: January 23rd, 2014
Subject: Fine; Violations of LCS Rules

Facts
In late October, Team SoloMid Ownership approached Ninjas in Pyjamas Ownership regarding signing Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg. NiP Ownership granted TSM Ownership permission to speak to Bjergsen directly about the possibility of acquisition. TSM and NiP negotiated a transfer agreement that resulted in Bjergsen joining TSM. During this negotiation, NiP Ownership informed Bjergsen that one of the conditions for his transfer was that he must find a player to fill one of the multiple holes in their roster.

Bjergsen then directly approached another professional player on a different LCS team, Lemondogs, without consulting the team’s manager. He offered this player a significant sum of money to leave his team/contract and to join NiP. The Lemondogs player was interested in the offer, and informed his team of his desire to leave, which eventually resulted in he and two other additional teammates leaving the organization and going to NiP.

Relevant Rules
Section 10.2.12 of the official LCS rule set states:

No Team Member or Affiliate of a team may solicit, lure, or make an offer of employment to any Team Member who is signed to any LCS team, nor encourage any such Team Member to breach or otherwise terminate a contract with said LCS team.

Analysis
Bjergsen cooperated with Riot staff and openly admitted to approaching and encouraging a contracted LCS player to leave his position at Lemondogs. TSM Ownership was not involved in conversations or financial offer to the player and as a result will not face any penalty. 

Ruling
Bjergsen has violated rule 10.2.12 of the LCS Ruleset and will be subject to penalties. 

Competition Penalties
Bjergsen is:
Fined $2000 USD
