This section is brought to you by Fatelblade:

Taking a peek into the bush, we see our favorite Demacian has finally received a buff! Garen, The Might of Demacia, has gained tons of damage on his Judgment; after being hit by 4 ticks, enemies have their armor reduced by 25%. This synergizes well with The Black Cleaver, a part of a complete Garen breakfast.

Out in the fields, The Harbinger of Doom, Fiddlesticks, has received some love! He gained damage on his Drain, and Dark Wind had its cooldown reduced. On our way to gank mid, we have a mage hell bent on retaking his throne as the King of Mid! Azir has received a buff on his Arise!, allowing him to field an ever larger army. To afford paying these new soldiers, however, Shurima's Legacy has had its spoils reduced. Unfortunately for the Emperor of the Sands, Katarina, the Sinister Blades has machinations for the throne! Voracity has been buffed, and Katarina's dagger are sharper than ever.

That explains the good, but what about the bad and the ugly? Making another jaunt into the bushes, we don't find Garen, but Ivern, the Green Father. I'm sure most of you have had the (dis)pleasure of meeting this mellow fellow, and Riot has noticed that perhaps he needs to be cut down. His Triggerseed has had the slow massively reduced, and the mana cost increased. Soon, he'll be the one pushing up daisies. Good things happen in threes, and this is no exception. Twitch has lost copious amounts of damage on his Deadly Venom, and his Venom Casks have gained some weight; they have had their mana costs increased. Ratatouille is back on the menu! Some champions have tried hiding in the shadows to avoid the nerfs, but Riot sees all, and Riot nerfed the Night Hunter, Vayne. She has lost damage on her Tumble, and perhaps its name will soon become fall! Rengar also had his claws clipped, losing damage on his Bonetooth Necklace.

Notable Misc. Changes / Fixes

    • For Nexus Siege matches, structure takedowns (offense) and charges toward the Obliterator (defense) are now tracked in spectator mode

  • League Client Update

    • Rotating game modes are now available in the updated client starting with Legend of the Poro King. (Known issue: custom games do not yet support rotating game modes.)

    • Players can once again spectate their friends’ games by right clicking them on the friends list and choosing “Spectate Game”.

    • Players can now change their keybindings from the updated client without having to go into a game.

    • Added a “Low-spec mode” switch in settings that lets players turn off certain animations and effects if they’re suffering from performance issues. Right now this mostly affects some minor aspects of the champ select experience, but we'll expand Low-spec mode to cover more features in upcoming patches.

    • Players will now see a notification when they receive a gift.

    • Made a number of improvements to reduce client lag and make key decision points in champion select more noticeable.

  • Launching yourself or an ally into the air via Blast Cone no longer counts as an enemy displacement effect for the purposes of an active enemy Yasuo's R Last Breath airborne check.
