Domani 2 Giugno arriva sul live la patch 6.11, una patch “tranquilla” nel complesso, che porta alcune nuove skin e qualche bilanciamento, sempre grazie a Surrenderat20.

 

New Champion Skins

We have three new outrageous wrestling themed champion skins tagging in during 6.11 – El Leon Gnar, El Macho Mundo, and El Rayo Volibear!


Here are the individual loading screen slices for each of the three skins:

 

El Leon Gnar

750 RP

Here’s RiotKateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for El Leon Gnar:

“In this corner of the Rift, we have El Leon Gnar, ready for his next opponent!

El Leon Gnar will be 750 RP* and includes –

  • New model and texture for both Mini and Mega Gnar, as well as his (Q) Boomerang Throw/Boulder Toss.
  • Quality of life particles have been added for his auto attacks and (Q) Boomerang Throw, to match his updated boomerang!

El Leon Gnar is now available to play on the PBE! As players who experience a first hand look at this content, we appreciate constructive feedback – feel free to leave it in the comments below! If you have any questions, you can also drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them! ^-^

GLHF!

*Prices subject to change.”

 

El Macho Mundo

1350 RP

Here’s RiotKateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for El Macho Mundo:
“And on the red side of the Rift, we have El Macho Mundo (even though he tends to go where he pleases).
El Macho Mundo will be 1350 RP* and includes –
  • New model and texture for not only Mundo, but for his weapons!
  • (Q) Infected Cleaver now has four different weapons – a bat, a championship belt, a chair and a ringside bell. These will all be selected at random every time (Q) Infected Cleaver is used!
  • New particles for (W) Burning Agony and (R) Sadism.
  • New SFX for (Q) Infected Cleaver – as well as different auto attacks, depending on the weapon in hand!

El Rayo Volibear

750 RP

Here’s Riot Nurse Flan with a Bugs & Feedback Thread for El Rayo Volibear:

El Rayo Volibear takes down his opponents in a flash! He was made with a lightning motif on his fur to match his theme!

  • Completely new model! (Luchador themed attire!)
  • Set to be 750 RP* (pricing always subject to change)

As players who get the first look at this in-progress skin, it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings on the new El Rayo Volibear skin! The feedback and bugs you leave here will help us get a better idea of things we may still have to take a look at. :]

See you on the Rift!”

New Ward Skin

To go along with the new skins we also have a new El Poro Ward skin!

El Poro Ward

640 RP

/Remake live on PBE 

While we’ve seen strings appear on the PBE in previous cycles, here’s RiotNeuroCat with more info on the recently announced remake option that is heading to the PBE for testing in preparation for a live test on NA during 6.11!

“Hi everyone,

/Remake is now live on on PBE – Socrates gave a good run down of the feature here. /Remake isn’t fully complete yet, so expect the following things to be added:

  • Hextech crafting items will not be given out for remade games when the feature goes live
  • Match History will more clearly indicate when a particular game was remade
  • We’ll be adding a clearer explanation post-game for high-tier players who take a loss

If you have an AFK in your game, please take the opportunity to test /remake and give us some feedback. Let us know if you have any questions!”

You can try out /remake in game by typing “/remake” in chat after any player has been dc’d or flagged as afk for at least 90 seconds at the three minute mark of the game and there has not been a first blood.

 

RGMQ Testing: Hexakill: Twisted Treeline

[Turned off on 5/25 for LotPK testing, leaving up for reference on new changes!]

Here’s RiotStephiroth with more info on Hexakill: TT, which is now available on the PBE for testing:

“Heya guys! ^__^v

Hexakill: Twisted Treeline is back, and ready for action!

We’ve made a small tweak since this mode was last live:

New Altar Functionality (note: This was listed in last time’s notes, however this change did not make it to live)

  • Passive: The Altar buff now provides a “Chalice-style” Mana Regeneration
  • 1 Altar captured: +10 % movespeed
  • 2 Altars captured: Minions spawn with +15% HP and damage

We also have some bug fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where Mordekaiser W was not properly giving EXP on Twisted Treeline. (This also applies to normal Twisted Treeline, not just Hexakill!)
  • [WILL BE ON TOMORROW] Fixed a bug where Kindred cannot hunt the 6th champion in the game.

We also did some minor particle clean-up on the Altars, however if we did everything right, you won’t notice anything at all. 🙂

As always, thanks for playing our modes and helping us squash bugs. <3 If you see a bug, feel free to report here! And if you have feedback, drop a comment below.”

 

Miscellaneous 

  • Cloud Drake’s dragon pit wall color has been changed.
  • The personalized shop is mysteriously back on the PBE! It is now just called “Your shop”. The top of the shop lists an end dates, which has changed over the course of this pbe cycle.
  • While not enabled for testing yet, A new “Center Camera Highlight” option has been added. It appears this will put a glow around your character whenever you use a hot key to center the camera on your champion. Here’s a brief preview video of the effect in action, although the option to enable/disable it hasn’t been added in-game on the PBE yet – soon!

Balance Changes

Thanks again for joining us on the frontline!”

Here’s a few pictures of the updated profile page, which is still very much a WIP!
    
While the back ground will change based on recently frequently played champions, using an ultimate skin icon will switch your background to an animated version of that skin – Examples: Spirit Guard UdyrDJ SonaPulsefire Ezreal.
The PBE LCU is open to all PBE testers, see [this thread] for more information on how to get started with testing as well as known issues and updates! Sign ups for the LIVE (not PBE) LCU Alpha can be found here.

LEC: Adam non sarà più il titolare del Team BDS

LEC: Adam non sarà più il titolare del Team BDS

Profilo di Rios

Secondo quanto riportato da LEC Wooloo su Upcomer, il Team BDS sarebbe pronto a rivoluzionare il proprio roster in vista del prossimo split. A farne le spese saranno AdamLIMIT, rispettivamente toplaner e supporto della squadra elvetica.

I due sembrano non aver convinto la dirigenza, che li sposterà nel Team BDS Academy, squadra cadetta che milita attualmente in LFL. Un passo indietro piuttosto importante per il giovane Adam, che sembrava essere una delle nuove stelle del competitivo europeo.

Chiaramente parliamo ancora di rumors non ufficiali, ma difficilmente ciò che è riportato da Wooloo poi si rivela falso o senza fondamento.

Il Team BDS si prepara per il prossimo split della LEC

Spazio ai rookie

Lo spring split 2022 della LEC non è stato particolarmente ricco di soddisfazioni per il Team BDS, che non è riuscito a trovare un suo stile di gioco. La squadra ha chiuso il campionato al nono posto, davanti agli Astralis di solo un punto.

Molti avevano grosse aspettative per questo roster, composto per tre quinti da quei Karmine Corp che avevano dominato l’EU Masters nel 2021. Purtroppo le cose non sono andate nel verso giusto, ed anche Adam non è riuscito a dare quel quid in più al suo team.

Proprio per questi motivi sopracitati, la dirigenza dei BDS ha deciso di dare una scossa al roster. Secondo quanto riportato da LEC Wooloo, infatti, AdamLIMIT non saranno più i titolari nel prossimo split. Agresivoo ed Erdote sono pronti a prendere il loro posto, lasciando la LFL per fare il grande salto.

Nonostante tutto, però, AdamLIMIT non lasceranno la galassia dei BDS, ma saranno retrocessi proprio nel Team BDS Academy in cui militano Agresivoo ed Erdote. Sarà la mossa giusta per rialzare le sorti della squadra? Al momento è difficile dirlo, ma onestamente non crediamo che sia facile ricostruire la sinergia di un roster da zero in un periodo così breve di off-season.

MSI 2022: Riot spiega perché il ping artificiale non ha funzionato

MSI 2022: Riot spiega perché il ping artificiale non ha funzionato

Profilo di Rios
 WhatsApp

Ormai lo sappiamo, il MSI 2022 sarà ricordato per la questione del “ping artificiale”, che ha generato diverse polemiche durante il group stage. Persino Faker ha parlato della cosa, dichiarando che le prestazioni dei T1 sono state influenzate dalla latenza troppo alta.

Si è creato un vero e proprio caso, a cui però Riot ha voluto rispondere attraverso un articolo molto tecnico e complesso. Questo ha voluto fugare tutti i dubbi dei tifosi e delle squadre, ponendo (si spera) fine alla questione una volta per tutte.

Andiamo a leggere alcune dichiarazioni dei tecnici di Riot, cercando di sintetizzare e rendere semplici alcuni concetti difficili da capire.

Il “ping artificiale” del MSI 2022

Antefatto

Se in questo giorni non avete seguito la querelle legata al “ping artificiale” del MSI 2022, facciamo un breve riassunto dei fatti. I campioni della LPL, gli RNG, non si sono potuti fisicamente recarsi a Busan (sede del torneo) a causa di varie ragioni che hanno a che fare con il COVID e le restrizioni poste in campo dal governo di Pechino.

La squadra, una volta tornata in patria, avrebbe dovuto rispettare ben 21 giorni di quarantena, un periodo di tempo che non avrebbe permesso al team di prepararsi correttamente per lo split della LPL e per gli Asian Games 2022 (successivamente rinvitati).

Gli RNG sono una delle squadre più importanti del mondo, non averla al MSI 2022 avrebbe reso il torneo meno entusiasmante da guardare, come dichiarato anche da Ocelote (proprietario dei G2 Esports). Per ovviare a questo problema, Riot ha deciso di far giocare la squadra da remoto.

Questa cosa, però, avrebbe creato una condizione di disparità importante tra gli RNG ed i team presenti a Busan, in quanto questi ultimi avrebbero giocato con una latenza nettamente inferiore. Per garantire l’integrità competitiva e delle condizioni paritarie per tutti, Riot ha deciso d’introdurre un “ping artificiale” di 35ms comune a tutti a team.

Benché l’intenzione fosse la migliore, la realizzazione ha lasciato a desiderare. Molte squadre hanno esplicitamente dichiarato di giocare su una latenza maggiore di 35, portando Riot ad aprire delle indagini. Dopo le verifiche del caso, l’azienda ha trovato il problema ed ha preso una decisione difficile: far rigiocare tutte le partite del girone d’andata agli RNG.

Questa cosa ha creato non pochi problemi e non poche lamentele, in primis proprio dagli RNG. Per rispondere a queste critiche e chiudere definitivamente la cosa, Riot ha fornito delle ulteriori spiegazioni.

E’ sempre colpa dei bug

Nell’articolo pubblicato sul sito di LoL Esports, i tecnici hanno spiegato per filo e per segno come avrebbe dovuto funzionare il “ping artificiale” del MSI 2022. Purtroppo, però, un bug si è insinuato nel codice del software che genera questa latenza. Di fatto, i team presenti a Busan, hanno giocato con un ping variabile tra i 50 ed 55ms, subendo anche un fenomeno di packet loss.

“Mentre i giocatori in Cina avevano un ping di 35 ms, a Busan era più alto. Sfortunatamente il problema non è stato rilevato fino all’inizio dell’evento. Non abbiamo rilevato prima il problema perché era presente un bug nel codice e questo calcolava male la latenza, quindi anche i valori nei nostri log erano sbagliati. Di conseguenza, il nostro monitoraggio è continuato e i test precedenti hanno mostrato che tutto funzionava correttamente, anche se la realtà era diversa.”
