Initializing PROJECT First Strike & PROJECT SyncHere's Nurse Flan with details on the PROJECT First Strike special loading screen cards and the PROJECT Sync features
"We’re releasing two new ways to interact with and enhance your PROJECT experience in this PBE update.
PROJECT First Strike
Be among the first to unlock new PROJECT skins from 9/8 - 9/15 23:59 PDT and show that you were part of the First Strike with permanent exclusive loading screen cards.
First Strike // 9/8 - 9/15 23:59 PDT
1350 RP: PROJECT: Fiora // PROJECT: Zed // PROJECT: Lucian // PROJECT: Leona
1820 RP: PROJECT: Yi
Week Two // 9/17 00:01 PDT - 9/24 23:59 PDT
975 RP: PROJECT: Fiora // PROJECT: Zed // PROJECT: Lucian // PROJECT: Leona
1820 RP: PROJECT: Yi
Once First Strike ends (9/15 23:59 PDT), new PROJECT skins will be deactivated in the League of Legends store until 9/17 to ensure that First Strike unlocks are redeemed properly. On 9/17 00:01 PDT, PROJECT: Fiora, PROJECT: Zed, PROJECT: Lucian, and PROJECT: Leona will be available for 975 RP until 9/24 23:59 PDT (and 1350 RP again after that).
Unlock custom spawn effects and PROJECT minions when you and your team equip PROJECT skins or wards for that game — only during 5.17 and 5.18!
Here’s how it works:
If you start a game with 2 Sync Points, your team unlocks custom PROJECT spawn effects.
- Optic Enhancer ward skin = 1 Sync Point
- Each PROJECT skin = 2 Sync Points
With 4 Sync Points, your team unlocks melee PROJECT minions as well as caster PROJECT minions.
With 6 Sync Points, you’ll unlock cannon PROJECT minions and super PROJECT minions.For more on the PROJECT spawn effects and PROJECT minions, see our earlier PBE coverage.
We’re excited for you try out PROJECT First Strike and PROJECT Sync on PBE!

We've updated the UI for Khazix and Viktor to be much more apparent when evolving or augmenting.
Let us know what you think."
