Cosmetics

Client

Ranked
  • As intended, everyone will now be demoted if you lose LP in any game you start at 0 LP.
  • For Grandmaster and Challenger players, if you're demoted you will now skip Master and go directly to Diamond 1.
  • We've also made adjustments to LP gains and losses underneath the hood for extreme edge cases. For the most part, you will not see or feel any changes based on this optimization.

Game

Item Drop
  • In rare instances it's now possible to drop a full completed item instead of a basic item.
Item Slot
  • Bug Fix: Fixed some item slots not showing up or being in weird spots.
Matchmaking
  • We've improved how the player matching works to prevent the streaky scenarios where you would face the same player (or ghost army) two or more times in a row. Now this should happen almost never.
Player Damage
  • Base player damage now scales with current stage, instead of 2 at all stages.
    • Stages 1-2: 1 damage.
    • Stage 3-4: 2 damage.
    • Stage 5: 3 damage.
    • Stage 6: 4 damage.
    • Stage 7+: 5 damage.
URF Overtime Mode
  • After 30 seconds into every battle, instead of a draw, now URF Overtime kicks in and speeds things up for 15 seconds. Draws are still possible but there should be a lot less of them.
    • 300% attack speed.
    • 200% ability damage.
    • 66% reduced crowd control duration.
    • 66% healing reduction.
    • 30% increased affection towards maritime mammals.
Win/Lose Streak
  • Bug Fix: Fixed Win/Lose streak gold being granted after PvE Rounds instead of after the PvP Round that happened before (streak gold should be granted at the end of all PvP rounds and no PvE rounds).
