[1/23 Update - Tristana Splash Reverted]

A small patch went out on 1/23, reverting the new Tristana art added in 1/22's update as it will not be coming alongside her champion update in 5.2.

Here's Ququroon with more info:
[1] "Hey all, due to the unfinished state of Tristana's new splash, we'll be pulling it from her release to further iterate and polish on it."
[2] "We still plan to ship Tristana in 5.2, so you can still look forward to that. We'll update the splash later. Thank you for understanding."
[3] "If I wasn't clear, we want to get the new splash out as soon as possible, but when it's in a completed state.

She is now  back to having her current live splash:
