Turret Fortification Shield VFX

Today's patch includes an update to the visual effect when attacking a turret that currently has the fortification buff that were added earlier this cycle.

LCU PBE ALPHA Update - Champion Pages

The PBE's league client update alpha has been updated to include the individual champion pages on the Collection tab! At the moment only the overview and skin tabs are available, the ability pages and story pages are not yet available.
In addition to the champion's role, name, title, and a short lore entry,  there are a few other champion details mentioned:
  • Damage  - "The champion's tendency to deal physical, magic, or mixed damage."
  • Style - "The champion's tendancy to deal damage to enemy champions using basic attacks vs abilities."
  • Difficulty
  • Circular visualization of champions strengths (starting at top and going clockwise):
    • Damage - The champion's ability to deal damage to enemy champions.
    • Toughness - The champion's ability to absorb damage from enemy champions.
    • Crowd Control - The champion's ability to apply harmful effects like slows and stuns to enemy champions.
    • Mobility - The champion's ability to move quickly around the map using blinks or dashes. 
    • Utility - The champion's ability to grant beneficial effects like shields, healing, or movement speed to allied champions.

Here are a few more examples:

Friendly reminder, LCU Alpha has a LIVE and PBE version! As with normal patches, the PBE LCU Alpha is updated first with new content & features then those updates are later pushed to the LIVE LCU Alpha.  The PBE LCU ALPHA is available to all PBE testers. Sign up for the Live LCU Alpha here.

"Nemesis Draft" for rotating game modes now live for testing on PBE. 

Nemesis Draft is now back on the PBE for RGMQ testing!  Here's L4T3NCY with more info:
"The "Nemesis Draft" game mode is now live for testing on PBE. We've been heads down on finishing Nexus Siege, so Nemesis Draft is a nice change of pace, assuming it's all good, we'll hopefully have it in the RGM queue sometime in the near future! 
This also doesn't mean we're not working on other modes (similar in scope to Nexus Siege), they just won't come out back-to-back so quickly (if only it was that easy!). We're also working on some medium-size updates to certain modes, as we realise they can settle a bit after multiple repeats (certain modes get stale quicker than others). 
Meanwhile, let us know if you guys spot anything weird with the champ select process in Nemesis Draft. For the newcomers, here's a review of the rules and how it should work: 
-- 3 bans per team.
-- You select a champion for the ENEMY TEAM.
---- Champions you pick for your enemies are allowed from your OWN TEAM'S combined champion pool.

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical or experimental changes. Be aware that what you see below may be lacking context or other changes that didn't make it in or were implemented in an earlier patch this cycle! These are not official notes.
