Sion Skin Splash Art Updates

Hextech Sion

Barbarian Sion

Lumberjack Sion

Warmonger Sion

New Summoner Icon

A new summoner icon has been added in today's update! No details on availability yet.

Skin Updates

We have a few more Arcade Ahri tweaks in today's update:

Arcade Ahri should also now have tail sparkles.
Here's a short preview video, also including the new music from Arcade Ahri's dance in case you missed it:

Arcade Ahri's loading screen was also updated to include her whisker lines (note the air client splash and champion select/champion page assets haven't been updated yet.):

8/18 PBE LCU Alpha Update - Champion Ban Quotes

The PBE LCU Alpha has been updated, including new quotes that play when a champion is banned in draft!

Here's a short preview video - note that new champions have unique quotes and older champions reuse an existing quote. Unfortunately a few champions are missing. Warwick also uses a quote that we haven't ever heard before - curious!
Remember eventually  there will be volume sliders to adjust these and other sounds in the client update.

A clubs tab has also been added to the profile page.

Balance Changes

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.

[Doesn't look like much here for balance changes - end of cycle!]
