New Urgot Splash ArtIn a surprising twist, Urgot has received a new base splash art.
Here's the updated skin wedge, loading screen, in-game portrait, and mini map icon.
[W.I.P ] Headhunter CaitlynHeadhunter Caitlyn is looking a bit different in today's PBE update. She seems to have been updated with a half pant leg, longer armor on her arms, and silver added to her gun, but her head textures seem a bit off.
Jungle Timers temporarily disabledThe new in-game jungle timers have been temporarily disabled as the PBE closes in on patch 4.11
On Twitter, Nome commented:
"We're temporarily turning off jungle timers in preparation for 4.11 testing, as the feature isn't going out with that patch."
Updated Summoner's Rift AssetsBoth the mini map and the map selection image for the updated Summoner's Rift have been updated ( from placeholders )!
and here are those assets ripped straight from the client ( only sizes available! )
