Ekko & Skin Changes

First up, today's update includes several tweaks to Ekko, Sandstorm Ekko, and Knockout Lee Sin!

Ekko's Time clone now has a symbol over his head that changes every couple of seconds. Gypsylord has noted this is to make it a little easier to pick out in a team fight.

Sandstorm Ekko's has his own unique symbol but it does not cycle like the base skin.
Here's a brief video preview: 

Speaking of Sandstorm Ekko, there were also a few changes to his back, pants, shoes, and hands.

Knockout Lee Sin has also received a new, puncherific Q indicator in today's patch.
