Lots of Red Posts - 3v3 Bots, Dominion, Icons, Karma, and a Twitter Contest

Posted on at 6:51 PM by Moobeat
While I understand how much easier it must be to move around now that you've emptied your RP reserves, I still appreciate you coming back for today's red post collection!
Continue reading for an update on the Co-Op vs Ai for Twisted Treeline, a promise that Dominion hasn't been forgotten, an announcement about the arrival of the Sinister Summoner Icons, more about Karma from Guinsoo's Twitter, an update on the recent FPS issues, and a new twitter contest from Riot.

Twisted Treeline Bots
As many of you saw on the PBE, the new Twisted Treeline has been outfitted with full Co-Op vs Ai support. This has not yet been enabled on live, although RiotKiddington gave us an update on when we can expect the 3v3 Co-Op action to be enabled:
"Coop vs AI for Twisted Treeline will be available next week. If this changes, I will let you know.
We are just waiting for few more things before enable the bots."

 Dominion forgotten?

Bummed that Riot has pushed out this updated 3v3 mode and seemingly forgotten about Dominion, a mode that has been largely untouched since release and still lacks a ranked queue? Don't worry! RiotNome's, one of the Rioters heavily involved in cleaning up the less popular game modes, hasn't abandoned you. He says;
"Dominion WILL get its dues. But as someone has mentioned, my time has been directed towards TT for the past... forever."

Sinsiter Summoner Icons being distributed
The Sinister Summoner Icons, exclusive icons awarded for spending or purchasing a certain amount of RP between October and early November, are on their way! Here is Hippalus announcing the good news:
"The initial batch of icons for buying RP are being distributed globally via a script over the next several hours. Everyone should have their icons by end of day, and beginning tomorrow, additional icons for buying RP will be distributed every ten minutes.

Icons earned by spending RP will be distributed over several days beginning November 14."

More Twitter Updates about Karma
Guinsoo put up another tweet about the awaited Karma rework earlier today, saying:
"Karma rework update: AP Karma OP. Must nerf Q ratios. Support Karma OP. Should not be able to double beam an enemy. Grinds them to a halt."
Nothing to solid, but double beaming sounds fancy.

FPS Problems
For those suffering from crippling FPS problems after the most recent patch, Riot is diligently working on a solution for you. Here is Dannamoth's most recent post about the situation:
"Just to update you guys:

We are testing a fix for issues with FPS dropping and plan on having a hotfix out in the near future. The short version of what is happening was related to some under the hood changes to the game. Certain particles were causing the game to re-draw the terrain around the particles."
Additionally, a small PBE patch as been deployed to test Riot's potential remedy.

#ZOMBIEBRAND contest
Good news contest lovers! Over the next few days, Riot will be giving away several Zombie Brand skin codes via the #ZOMBIEBRAND Twitter contest. Here are the rules for those of you who may be interested in a free skin!
"Let’s talk about something cool – zombies! Zombies are pretty cool, aren’t they? Love ‘em, hate ‘em, kill ‘em… endless sources of gore and entertainment, these guys are. Especially that new Zombie Brand skin … what a looker! I bet you’re thinking, “I wanna look like that.”

Wait. I bet you can. Or at least, if you try, you might win the limited edition, Legendary Zombie Brand skin! Here’s how:

  • Follow @LeagueofLegends on Twitter
  • Take a picture of yourself (with your friends, pets, family, interesting street art, whatever!) posing just like Brand in his Zombie skin splash art !
  • Tweet your photo to @LeagueofLegends and include the hashtag #ZOMBIEBRAND
  • That’s it! You’ve entered the sweepstakes!
In the next three days, we’ll collect your submissions from @LeagueofLegends , and at the end of each day we’ll select three random winners and send them a code via direct message for their new Zombie Brand skin, redeemable upon his release. To qualify for selection, you must be following @LeagueofLegends on Twitter, and at least one person in the photo you submit must be posed like Brand in his Zombie splash art. Think fearsome, ferocious, and fiery. The sweepstakes runs from October 26 through October 28, so you have all weekend to get creative with it.

Click here for the official rules, and have fun!"

    1. Well, it looks like her Q damage and ratios have increased, and probably the cooldown of the slowing beam has decreased so you can double beam o_o

      Delete
    2. I think it's like Rengar where beam and enhaced beam (with mantra bonus) have seperate cooldowns. (just like how Rengar can double slow with his e).

      Delete
    3. Maybe a double activation, as Rumble's E.
      Sou you can buff an ally and debuff an enemy at the same time.
      OP.

  3. Good to hear more about Karma. I really look forward to the update. Sounds like her new Mantra "Ulti" might also reset her CDs (only way I can think to 'double beam' an enemy).

    1. Maybe it'll work like Rengar's ferocity, ulting lets you cast an "alternate" version of one of the spells.

      Delete
    2. If you put it like that it makes it sound like the way it already works. =P

      Delete
    3. I think he's implying the "alternate" version would have a seperate CD.

  9. I hope this contest dosen't encourage people to light themselves on fire; I'm not so conserned about the idiots that do it, but mainly Riot might get sued.

    1. Not only would I be impressed with green fire, I'd give them the skin. Normal fire wouldn't be good enough.
