World Championship 2016 - Summoner Icon Emotes

Assets for the first two tiers of the special esports team in-game emotes attached to the 2016 World Championship icons have been added in today's update!

Here's an example of the first and second tier emote images for TSM and SKT:

   
While not yet enabled for testing, here's what they will look like in-game:

As a reminder, the new summoner icons will have three different tiers that players can upgrade too, each upgrade changing the appearance of the icon & emote and the last one changing appearance and adding in a special recall particle. Details here. These icons will be available for all 16 of the 2016 WC teams.

9/8 PBE LCU Alpha Update

An update has been pushed to the PBE LCU Alpha!

As previously mentioned, Loot is now up on the PBE LCU Alpha for testing!
