New Ability Icons for Tristana

[Note: Seems these went out too early according to Ququroon. They will not be shiping in 5.1 and will be removed soon.]

While we know she is up for a champion update in the future, Tristana received a new set of ability icons in today's update!

Summoner's Rift Terrain Changes - Red Side "Gate"

As you may recall from before the break, two new openings were added to the Summoner's Rift bases. While Blue side's gate has had a "gate" object in it for a few updates,  Red side now has it's own appropriately themed "gate" object that is!

After the long PBE break for the holiday's, lets recap with an up to date look at these changes - here is the the blue side's "gate", a set of zoomed out screen shots, and a small example video:

As for how they function:
  • You can only pass through your OWN gate. - You can "exit" and "enter". 
  • Enemies can not pass through your gate and you can not pass through theirs
  • For enemy gates, you can Jump, Flash, or interact with them like a normal wall.
  • You can not see through them.

2015 Ranked Team Reward Wards

With the 2015 season set to start soon, new in-client previews of the 2015 ranked team reward ward skin has been added!

Check out the new versions of the Conquering,  Triumphant, and Victorious ward skins, which will presumably be handed out at the end of the 2015 season!
