A new champion teaser video is out and it features the dangerous tale of a brave poro....

"With the Freljord’s winter closing in and an almighty battle raging around him, one brave poro bounds on in his eternal search for snacks."
If you stuck through the adventure of our beloved poro, you might have noticed he made a friend... a big, muscly , mustached friend.

I'll keep you updated as more information on what the patch contains and patch notes become available. While the latest PBE content is usually a good indicator of what's to come, please remember that it is tentative and not everything may make it to live.
