Super Galaxy Rumble

While we don't have a model yet, we know now the name of the Rumble skin teased yesterday!

We DO however have the voice over!

Updated Malphite Art

We don't have the full art but the in-game ( potrait and load screen ) art for Malphite has been updated. Can't wait to see the full thing!

4.5 Brush Vision Tech Changes

Here's vLemon with info on some tech changes for Brush that are testing on the PBE!
"We wanted to let you gals and guys know that we put in some changes in 4.5 that affect how the brush logic works. These changes should fix bugs where:
  • you would be standing in a curved bush and you wouldn't be able to see champions standing on the opposite edge of the bush
  • there would be some blind spots in brushes that wouldn't be revealed by wards
Let us know if you see anything weird related to vision :)"

[Floating Combat Text] Gold and Crit Changes

Here's Rayven with more info:
"Hey folks, we are making some changes to gold and crit combat text in an upcoming patch. The goals here are to increase the impact of those ceremonies and standardize the presentation across all regions. 
All this means is that being rewarded with gold or critting an enemy in the face should feel better and we get to clean up situations like the attached image from an OGN match. 
So what are we doing? We are replacing the gold “g” and the crit “!” with tiny icons. Try it out in game and let us know what you think."

Here's an example of the gold:
