Summoner's Rift Terrain Updates

There are now two new openings in the walls of each base placed between the existing side and middle entrance.
Riot Reinboom commented on these new openings, saying:
"Also, we put large openings in the bases on SR that only the team aligned with the base can pass through. Also on PBE now. :D"
She continued:
"You can't see through them. Only one side can pass through them (enemies can't pass through yours and you can't pass theirs)"
She continued:
"Exactly. This is an exploration of a "defender's advantage" that's not just pure stats. Something more interesting."

In summary:
  • You can only pass through your OWN gate. - You can "exit" and "enter". 
  • Enemies can not pass through your gate and you can not pass through theirs
  • For enemy gates, you can Jump, Flash, or interact with them like a normal wall.
  • You can not see through them.

Zz'Rot Portal Updates

The new Zz'Rot Portal item has been updated with new visual and sound effects!

As a refresher, here's the current stats on the new Zz'Rot Portal item:

Return of Dragonslayer Braum's Unique passive indicator

After a discussion launched around El Tigre Braum having a unique indicator while Dragonslayer Braum's was removed prior to his launch, the unique passive indicator for Dragonslayer Braum has returned! Rather than a Ram like the base, it is now a dragon face!


A few files relating to "SonaDJ" were added in today's update. Nothing tangible to share. Manage your expectations accordingly.
