EDIT:
I suppose I should break them all down for the extra BE.

You get rewards from levelling
Runes + masteries are combined and now free and editable in champ select

If you guys have questions btw let me know, I'll poke the right folks to get answers for you or I might already have them

It's a bit weird to hear "just wait until the changes ship and you'll understand" when we're required to take preemptive measure such as crafting away our shards before they start giving out less essence upon disenchanting them. Like, after reading the news article I thought they meant the lower disenchant values were only going to be applied to champion shards, and didn't really expect the changes to affect skin shards as well. A summary like yours at the end of the article would've helped a lot.

Guess I'll have to pay attention to when the changes hit so I can turn my unwanted shards into essence before then.

some dope stuff on pbe



favoriting champions is a long requested feature i'm glad they're putting into the game

---

azir rework up, seems to be less focus on his poke with q and more on sustained dmg by having soldiers up constantly. he also lost some "invisible" power (not so invisible but still), like being able to clear wards from 1k distance or his ult blocking jumps after the animation

---

also a cool new skin line unfortunately wasted on lame champions (well, fiora is cool)





the skins all look pretty cool

A lot of info on the new levelling system and blue essence stuff:

https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.co...ewards-changes

Beyond level 30, you'll almost exclusively get unlocked chests with champion shards inside whenever leveling up. The only real exceptions to this will be on certain "milestone" levels like 50, 75, 100, etc. When these levels are reached, you'll get exclusive rewards that you can use to show off your status in-game. One of these rewards is a special emote which you can evolve using blue essence.

We're also planning to give out exclusive emotes based on how many hours you've put into since the beginning of League. Playing 500 hours gets you the Defender of the League emote, 1,500 hours gets you the Champion of the League emote, and 2,500 hours gets you the ultra-rare Conqueror of the League emote.

  • 1,500 BE - Mystery icon box (guaranteed to be an icon you don't already own)
  • 2,000 BE - Chromas (includes all chromas that have been available for at least six months)
  • 2,500 BE - “Mystery Mini” Icons Box (exclusive to the special BE store)
  • 3,950 BE - Mystery Champions (guaranteed to be a champion you don't already own)
  • 4,900 BE - Mystery ward skin box (guaranteed to be a ward skin you don't already own)
  • 6,000 BE - Rune ward skin (exclusive to the special BE store)
  • 50,000 BE - "Make it Rain" emote (exclusive to the special BE store)
  • 50,000 BE and up - Gemstones (First one costs 50,000, second costs 75,000, third costs 100,000. Limited to three per account during the special BE store sale)
  • 150,000 BE - URFWick skin (now exclusive to the special BE store)

that's one big ass info dump

what a fucking headache, it's not that complicated but it's so hard to get a good picture of what playing with this system will feel like because of how fucking bloated it is

current system is garbage, and very unsatisfying, so it's gonna be an upgrade, but i wish riot would make something that doesn't require a 20 point FAQ for a change

also those mini icons being rng is fucking bullshit

We'll introduce an exclusive ward skin (shown below) for anyone who owned any special legacy runes OR who spent at least 125,000 IP on runes before the September 1, 2017 cutoff date. We'll also give rare rune owners a special commemorative icon.

Heck yeah you lameos Ima get a special ward and icon and Ill be at the pantheon of gods

it's the same when you spend your ip, champions will still cost 6300. the only thing that changes is how much essence u get from your shards

under the new system on your first levels you'll get champion shards for beginner champions and it's also easier to level so you'll get more shards than later on

That would not make any sense with how content or modes are gated early on for new players while they learn. Read the FAQ that was already linked on this page.

what i've read is that every level has an "ip" value which means that say at lvl 1 it's 450 "ip" so you get ashe

at lvl 30 it's 6300 "ip" so you can get jhin, or you can get orianna+caitlyn or something

there's quote marks around it cos you don't really get the champion, you get a shard, and since it's randomized it's worth a lot less (also can be repeats afaik?)

there's also gonna be milestone levels that give u special stuff like emotes

new system won't change anything for u

just disenchant all shards you don't plan on using

riot maybe should've just made old shards "legacy" so they give more essence and avoid this nonsense, but also that'd probably be adding more complicated shit to the mix

The song is good, but it feels too angsty. I would really appreciate a "Waka waka" or a "Wavin' flag". You know something that is energetic and celebrates the teams - past and present. I really expected that kind of a song this time :(

It is a lot better than the last two. They still haven't managed to top the hype of Warriors though, setting the bar way too high way too early, but top 2 definetly.

edit: riot really fucked up the messaging on these missions

i keep getting randos demand "original team" or "all mages" when you can't get it unless you're a premade...

also wish matchmaking was a bit better. i don't expect perfect ranking but it kind of sucks playing with people that seem like they barely know how to play the game like rushing ga on mf or some shit

like this is some coop vs ai shit

which i guess makes some sense, considering the mode
