6/24 PBE Update: New LCS Team Summoner Icons & Minor Balance Changes

Posted on at 3:21 PM by Moobeat
A small update, containing a batch of new LCS summoner icons, has been pushed to the PBE!
Continue reading for a better look at the new LCS Summer Team Summoner Icons that were added in this patch as well as another small balance change for LeBlanc.

LCS Summer Team Summoner Icons
New icons, one for each of the NA and EU LCS Summer Split teams have been added to the game. Each icon features the teams logo overlaid on a III to denote the icon is from Season 3.

These icons are purchasable in the shop for 250 RP, are permanent, and will be available for purchase until the end of the season.

Here is Riot Hundo with details on the new icons:
"Summoners, 
In celebration of esports, we're testing a new feature on the PBE that will allow you to show support for your favorite team by grabbing an official team logo Summoner Icon for any of the North American and European LCS teams in the Summer Split.

These icons will be available in the live store shortly after Patch 3.9 until the end of the Summer Split for 250 RP, and are permanently added to your account.
In addition to the new icons, we're testing some new tech that helps you show off your team pride: all Summoner Icons—including the new esports team icons—will be shown on the loading screen before each match.

As with any feature on the PBE, we're looking for your feedback, so let us know what you think and we'll see you rocking some sweet new flair on the Fields of Justice."
Additionally, Udyr mentioned, on twitter, that even if a team gets knocked out you keep the icons:
"For a few that asked, if a team gets knocked out, the icon sticks around so you have extra #LCS hipster swag. #leagueoflegends"
Udyr also commented that part of the icon sales will go towards funding the teams:
"Also a heads up that 20% of the revenue from the #LCS icons will go to the teams, with the remainder used towards esports."
He also noted:
"We are working on getting icons for other region teams (TPA, WE, etc) but don't have a timeline to share right now"
