6/17/12 Patch Notes

Posted on at 8:01 AM by Moobeat
With no reveal or teaser, it was not really looking good for those waiting, with bated breath, for a new champion this week. Instead, we have a patch full of bug fixes and quality of life changes, including some ultimate based pets having new move systems and the elo loss for dodging a ranked game being removed.

PvP.net v1.61
  • Players can now earn unlimited rewards per day in Co-op vs. AI. After 180 minutes, rewards continue to be earned at 75% the normal rate.
  • Custom games now have a separate pool of 120 daily reward minutes that is no longer shared with Co-op vs. AI.
    • Only applies to Summoners level 15+. Lower level Summoners earn unlimited rewards per day.
  • Updated the IP reward forumula for Co-op vs. AI:
    • Games of medium to long length will yield larger rewards
    • Games of short length will yield smaller rewards
      • On Summoner's Rift, "short" is generally less than 24 minutes
      • On The Crystal Scar, "short" is generally less than 12 minutes
    • Players should see an increase in IP reward per game so long as they aren't quickly steamrolling the bots
  • The Tournament Draft Custom Game mode will now allow Summoners to pause the game
  • Dodging a Ranked Game will no longer result in loss of Elo but the time before you can join any queue again has greatly increased
  • Adjusted the way Elo is handled for newly formed ranked teams; many new teams will see their Elo increase as a result.
  • Normal Draft Mode (Please note that these additions were incorrectly stated in the Darius patch notes)
    • Normal draft has changed so that premade groups are not prioritized over solo players
      • Solo players have a 20% chance of being the team captain with banning powers and first pick, regardless of the premade status of the rest of the team
      • If a solo player is not team captain, the player will be given a random slot in the pick order
      • If players group up before a game, their host absorbs all of their chances, i.e. the host of a 4-man premade has an 80% chance to be captain
  • A feedback sound now plays when spending mastery points

Additionally, Foxfire Ahri and Panda Teemo have made it into this push, but have yet to be made available for purchase. My ASSUMPTION is that they will be released later in the week, along side Pulsefire Ezreal


On the topic of things not yet made available, you may have noticed the absence of the ARAM Training Grounds, a "new" map for custom games, from the patch notes.

Hey guys, I want to give you a quick update on this. While we still plan to ship the assets for the Proving Grounds custom game mode with the next patch, we will not have it enabled on patch day. Very late in the cycle some concerns with platform stability arose, so we're going to delay turning it on for a few days to iron that out. My apologies! It will still be playable on the PBE in the mean time.

  1. Platform stability still having trouble. There is am massive issue with actually playing the game that has been ongoing since the patch launched. Most people are unable to start any games.

  3. Apparently it's messed up so bad that they are aborting the patch. Revertion to Dravan patch is in progress.
