Balance Changes


  • Possibility of having all champions available in this mode to eliminate 'ARAM smurfs' (reroll system would be reworked)

Backdating Visually Upgraded Skin Artwork

  • Andrei 'Meddler' van Roon noted that Ahri OriginalSquare Ahri will be getting new ability icons and also mentioned that they'd love some feedback on other champions in need of icon updates.

Run Animations
  • Andrei 'Meddler' van Roon mentioned that Riot was currently getting some work underway to improve the run animation of some of the older champions.

Walk/Run anims are being focused on here since they're played more than any other animations.
