"Ekko" - Potential New Champion Voice files

Two voice files for a potential new championed named "Ekko" have popped up in today's update! While we don't have the English versions of this champion select quote, we do have the Hungarian and Turkish versions!



These roughly translate to:

Redditor mjbsebastian translated the TR version to: "Doesnt matter how much time you have, what really matter is how you use your time.".

Redditor Choad_Warrior translated the HU version to : "Doesn't matter how much time you have, but (or just) how you use it (literally is actually "exploit it")."

Skin Updates

The upcoming Ace of Spades Ezreal skin has been updated in today's patch, including new hair color and several changes to his clothing.

Star Guardian Lux also now has her recall sound effects!

New Summoner Icon

A new summoner icon featuring GROMP has been added in today's update.


  • They ducked up - another duck has been added to Summoner's Rift. The little guys file name is "Sru_Duckie" and he has a few associated animations.
  • Ashe's W icon has been flipped
