Arcade Sona Updates

Another patch, another set of Sona changes! Remember that Sona and all of her skins have received texture and model updates, in addition to her new VFX and her kit rework! If you need to catch up, you can find info on all that in this post.

Arcade Sona's hair has been updated to match the updated hair of the other Sona skins!

Live vs the version from 7/18 vs the current version with new hair.

Arcade Sona also has her pixelated vfx back, updated to go along with her new gameplay changes.

[ Note: The Joysticks are kinda broken atm, they bug out with animations. Known bug that is being fixed ] 

Landing Page

[ Update: According to Wiot Wittwock this is unintended and will be fixed next deploy. ]

While the new content on the landing page remains the same, the top bar, alerts, play button, and everything near the top of the client have been reverted back to the blue style that is on live rather than the darker teal and orange style we saw previously.

Balance Changes
