[ Fixed ] In-Game Store Not Working

Here's Riot Feithen with a heads up that the in-game store ( where you buy items for your champion ) is not working in today's build.
"Hi folks, 
This morning after our deploy we discovered that the in-game store is not working; it's not possible to buy any items. We're working on a fix and hope to deploy it out later. Until then, we appreciate anybody who's still helping test in "ultra badass mode"... if you can win without items, you're pretty awesome. :) 
Thanks,
Fei
Update 12:13 PDT - We are testing the fix now"  

As of the second patch, this issue has been fixed! 


River Spirit Nami Updates

The upcoming River Spirit Nami skin has had it's in-game colors brightened to better match her splash art!

Here's a comparison between the original colors and the ones in today's update.

Here's a full set of updated shots:



New Summoner Icon

A mysterious new summoner icon was added in today's build. No details yet on availability.

A store image was added for the new "Battle Boost", a One for All: Mirror Mode exclusive feature that grants everyone on your team a one game IP boost and temporary access to a champion's available skins. No details yet on why it was added - the new graphic does not show up in the OfA:MM lobby.
