11/27 PBE Update: Yasuo Icon Update and more balance changes

Posted on at 11:29 AM by Moobeat
[Update #2]: Small patch went out to fix some other bugs but Lulu remains disabled. Here's Riot Feithen with the deets:
"We've deployed a small patch to address the issue with the Profile screen causing blank pages and preventing players from joining games. Unfortunately Lulu's fix isn't ready so she'll be disabled until Monday."

The PBE has been updated with a minor chnage to Yasuo's icon and several tentative balance changes, including buffs for Lulu and more changes to the jungle items.!

(Warning: PBE Content is tentative and iterative - what you see may not reflect what eventually gets pushed to live servers! Manage your expectations accordingly. )

Here's Riot Feithen with a PBE community post on this update:
"Hi folks,

The morning PBE update is in progress! We should be open again in around 60 minutes. The patch includes a hefty batch of bug fixes. 
Update 12:10PST: We're opening now, should be 5-10 minutes. Please note that Lulu will be disabled pending a second update that's coming later today. :("
[Update #1]
Here's Riot Feithen with a workaround for a bug causing the Screen Scroll Lock to get stuck
"Hi all, 
We're aware of an issue in the game where your screen scroll lock will become stuck. This means moving the mouse to the edge of the screen does nothing, and pressing space bar does not return the screen to your champion. 
You can fix the issue by alt-tabbing out of the game client. In our internal tests this clears the issue for the remainder of the game. Changing your options will not fix the bug. 
We'll get the real fix out as soon as possible but wanted to get you some visibility on the workaround in the mean time.

Winter Wonder Lulu

Judging by the files, Winter Wonder Lulu's Polymorph should be a snowman but Lulu is currently disabled on the PBE - will check when possible!


Champion potrait has been updated - it has been flipped and color dulled a bit.
