Miscellaneous 

  • Special loading screens for each of the April Fools skins were added:
  • Store assets for Meowrick chroma were added:
      
  • Skin bios added for past and current April Fools skins:
    • Meowkai: Maokai has, at long last, embraced his role as a giant, haunted scratching post.
    • Corgi Corki: A dog trainer with some impractical ideas about canine aerodynamics, Corki has entered the world's foremost pet show with a flight-enabled Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Why has he done this? What does he hope to gain? Is he really a Yordle, or just a very small man? These are all important questions.

Context & Notes

1) Reav3 noted some upcoming Kayle changes in the ongoing Kayle & Morgana rework AMA on Reddit:

On Aether Wing Kayle:
"The idea was that the suit was slowly taking over Kayle. After discussing it more we have decided that doesnt really come of well in her model/splash so we are actually going to be removing the robotic voice processing in 9.6"
On Kayle skin VFX:
"We are currently doing some recolors to a number of Kayle skins targeted for 9.6"
