Champion Mastery live!

As previously announced, the new Champion Mastery system is being rolled out to live regions!
Here's Riot Mirross with the announcement:
"We’ve just pushed Champion Mastery out onto the live servers - complete any normal, teambuilder, or ranked game to start earning those sweet, sweet champion points! Here’s a quick reminder of the changes we’ve made to the system since we debuted it on PBE:

Player tooltips - Player tooltips now indicate the sum of your champion mastery levels across all champions

Participating queues - Queues now have an icon that indicates whether or not they grant champion mastery points

Ceremony - Added sound effects to end-of-game champion mastery animations

Role ranks - Champions now gain new titles based on their primary roles as you gain mastery levels (Once he hits Champion Mastery level 3, Ziggs gains the title of "Invoker" based on his primary role as Mage, for example). These titles are displayed on-hover in your Profile and Champions tabs, as well as the end-of-game Champion Mastery results display.

Check out the Champion Mastery microsite for the full story or head over to the Champion Mastery FAQ for more information!"

[Note: Champion Mastery is now up on every server!]

Over on reddit, Riot Mirross commented:
"It's live on NA now. EUW / EUN should be later today. edit - Lots of questions being asked are answered here -[link]  
It's rolling out in SR on normal (blind/draft), teambuilder, ranked and ranked team queues."
Later in the day he added:
"We've finished NA, EUN, OC. EUW should be next, along with RU and TR."

As for a time frame on when Champion Mastery will be enabled on other servers, Mirross noted:
"It won't be until much later this evening (5+ hours). We're making sure everything's running fine in NA then we'll roll out to other regions."
Riot Chomey also noted that Champion Mastery will be up on LAN/LAS later today.

As for why it is being rolled out to regions one at time, Riot Mirross commented:
"Quote:
Because Leauge of Legends is the most played PC game in the world, it's never as simple as pressing the big red "release feature" button. Different divisions of Riot have to make sure everything is optimized in terms of localization, not to mention the various different clients (i.e. NA vs. Garena's).
Yes, and something like this is new hardware in each data center. Lots can go wrong!"

Riot Socrates also reminded that the scores you get after the game are based on:
"It's based on your performance, your teams performance, the length of the game, win vs loss and a few other factors."
Riot Mirross also reiterated that Champion Mastery will be launching for SR ranked, normal (blind/draft) and team builder.
"We're releasing in SR ranked, normal (blind/draft) and teambuilder."

[UPDATE] Few more bits on Champion Mastery:

Riot Mirross noted that the 3rd Tank title is actually "Bulwark" not "Bulward":
"It's a typo. It should be Bulwark :( 
It should be correct in the client."
As for how the titles are awarded to each champion, he explained:
"The titles are based on the primary role of that champion (i.e. each champion has one set of titles defined for him/her)"

ManWolfAxeBoss on ARAM's Mark / Dash 

In a boards thread inquiring about the new ARAM only summoner spell MARK / DASH and if there are any planned changes for it, ManWolfAxeBoss noted:
"So, I posted a couple days ago about a change that's already on PBE. The damage is being split between between Mark and Dash. It will only hit for about 1/3 on Mark now and 2/3 if you commit to Dash. 
The spell is too "pokey" in its current state, which isn't the goal. This tweak should help address that while still giving tools to champs that want to gap close. 
As I stated the other day as well, we're keeping on eye on the spell (cooldown in particular) and will adjust things as needed."
When asked about nerfing the low cooldown, he continued:
"Yup. We are thinking the same thing. Having windows in which players can both relax and make aggressive plays is important. We're leaning towards increasing CD, but the spell has only been on live for a week. Frankly, that's not enough time to make an informed decision.

Same goes for range.

Again, it's all on watch and will be addressed as needed."

Positive Reviews in the Tribunal:

Following his enormous discussion on the Tribunal and other player behavior systems, Lyte also commented on reddit that om the future Honors will identify players for positive reviews in the Tribunal.
"In the future, Honors will identify players for "positive review," and players can vote on their chat logs. If the community agrees the players are positive, players who accurately Honored the positive player, players who accurately voted the player as positive in the Tribunal and the positive player themselves will get a small prize. 
There will be clear feedback loops throughout, so it should be a pretty good reinforcement loop for the system. Of course, there's also a few design upgrades we want to do, but we're going to finish up the first few features of the new Tribunal first before we start talking about the positive feature set."

LCS Spring Split Team Icons Leaving Soon

With the LCS Summer split starting up soon, the EU and NA LCS Spring Split team summoner icons will be leaving the shop on May 8th!
"The 2015 LCS Spring Split has come to a close. As we gear up for the Mid-Season Invitational and Summer Split, we’re doing some shop keeping and taking down the NA and EU Spring Split team icons on May 8. Make sure to grab them for 250 RP each before they're gone to support your favorite team. 
Watch out for the Mid-Season Invitational icons and upcoming Summer Split icons, freshly updated with all the new teams joining the LCS."
