If you’re a League of Legends fan, you might know that a huge Volibear update is being rolled out as part of the just-released LoL patch 10.11. You might also know that earlier this year developer Riot Games said it would be doing Champion nerfs and balancing post-release a little bit differently in the future. Now, following Voli’s re-release, the studio’s outlined these plans in more detail – and offered “general insight into how we monitor and follow up on bigger or more risky changes.”

Looks like League of Legends Champions Senna and Irelia will be getting their very own High Noon skins sometime soon. Developer Riot Games has posted a clip showing off a PBE preview of the two Champs’ upcoming looks from the wild west-inspired alternate universe line – and they’ve got some pretty exciting-looking features, to boot.
At the beginning of the year, Riot Games hinted at a new feature on the way to its flagship MOBA game sometime this year: League of Legends announcer packs. That is, the option to choose different in-game announcers when firing up a new match. It’s an exciting prospect, but sadly, it’s been put on the backburner for now.
The long-awaited League of Legends Volibear rework reveal has finally happened, and we got to see it in much more detail. The May 8 reveal stream for the reimagined MOBA champion went down last night ahead of his live launch later this month, and Riot said it would try a new approach to the reworked champion’s debut.
Earlier this year, League of Legends developer Riot announced it was launching a “Client Cleanup Campaign” – that is, a big rework of the MOBA game’s client to improve its performance and stamp out a bunch of bugs and other hiccups. Now, the studio’s posted an update on how this is going – and has said: “Put bluntly, we still have a ways to go before we’re happy with the client’s performance.”
League of Legends developer Riot has shared previews of upcoming skins for some of the “underserved” but, arguably, best League of Legends Champions. The studio announced earlier this year it would be releasing a bunch of skins for Champs that haven’t received fresh new looks in a while, and now we can see what’s on the way for Bard, Taliyah, and Pantheon.
April 24, 2020 Riot’s announced the Volibear rework is “coming next month”. Original story follows.
Some of the newest and best League of Legends Champions, like Aphelios, Senna, and Sett, have had to undergo a few rounds of tinkering since their arrival in the MOBA game – and been slapped with a bunch of nerfs to balance them out. Now, however, Riot has said it’s not happy with how this panned out, and where a brand-new Champ is a bit “too strong” in the future, it’s planning to “follow up faster and with a more comprehensive set of nerfs” instead.
Riot has drawn back the curtain on Fiddlesticks’ awaited rework, breaking down the changes to the scarecrow’s abilities and showcasing his distinctly creepy visuals. Though some have taken to writing goodbye letters to the gangly champ, others welcome the change in pace.
