Pulsefire Teaser

A mysterious new voice teaser is now on the PBE. Pulsefire Ezreal requests a diagnostic ran when an accented voice interrupts the transmission by saying "Nowhere to hide".

"Nowhere to hide" is a line in Caitlyn's VO. Riot also talked late last year about potentially updating PFE.

To trigger the teaser, simply go into a game with Pulsefire Ezreal and move to play the new audio.


Dark Star Login Theme

A new login theme featuring unique art for Dark Star Kha'Zix and Dark Star Orianna is now on PBE!


Miscellaneous 

"The Cosmic Ruins are a corrupted corner of a once-great world that has been harvested and ejected into the vast emptiness of space. A black hole looms in the center of the map, pulling all survivors into the infinite depths of the Dark Star.",

Balance Changes
