Teleport
[context]
  • "Teleport will look for nearby valid teleport targets when you cast it..."
  • "To protect against fat fingering or accidental casts, this only applies if the target location is 2000+ units away"
  • "No longer buffers spells during teleport"

Context & Notes

[FRESH CONTEXT  AND PBE NOTES OVA 'ERE!  EXTREE EXTREE! READ ALL ABOUT IT!]

1) Exgeniar shared a set of upcoming Teleport changes that should be on the PBE soon.
"Hello Everyone, 
Ever had trouble finding that itty bitty ward that's somewhere in the middle of that crazy team fight? Ever got frustrated at clicking the mini-map trying to teleport into a fight?
Well, misclick no more! 
Change List:
  • Teleport will look for nearby valid teleport targets when you cast it...
  • To protect against fat fingering or accidental casts, this only applies if the target location is 2000+ units away
  • No longer buffers spells during teleport
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on these changes, if you noticed any usability issues, and have a good day! 
(This will be on PBE after the March 8th server deploy, and is likely to be remain in testing till patch 7.7)"

2) A PBE boards feedback thread is now up for the Galio champion update.

3) Preview videos for the four new chroma sets introduced in 3/7 update:

1) Meddler's quick gameplay thoughts for 3/7  including a few upcoming changes they are considering:
"One of our focuses for the 7.6 development cycle is looking at champions who commonly jungle who are having too hard a time of it. We're expecting that'll mean we look at a range of champions and then make changes to a subset of that group. Currently being considered are Nunu, Fiddlesticks, Nidalee, Amumu, Jarvan and Volibear. You should see changes to some of those champs hit the PBE today, expect some others to follow and some to likely get reverted during the patch cycle as we test them. 
Changes we're more confident in are Nid traps prioritizing big monsters over small plus Fiddle getting bonus E damage against monsters and from memory CD/range tweaks to Q/W respectively. For J4 and Nunu we're looking at W scaling and consume respectively, though need more testing on those to speak with confidence about how promising those directions are/aren't. Nothing concrete yet on Amumu or Volibear."
