More Summoner's Rift Team Banner Assets

To build on the NA LCS banner assets added yesterday, the 2015 URF Showmatch, we have another set of in-game Summoner's Rift base banner assets in today's update! Included are a banner for for each of the ten EU LCS teams.
If I had to guess, I'd wager these are likely to be used during LCS matches. No details announced yet.

For reference, here is what the banners looked like in-game when first seen during the 2015 Urf showmatch:

Splash Art Updates

The shared splash art for the High Stakes playing card set has been altered, with the throne King of Clubs Mordekaiser has been changed.
Here are up to dates of both versions of the splash art:
Of course, this means the King of Clubs Mordekaiser loading screen slice has also been changed:


Esports Summoner Icon Changes

Today's update also included changes to a few of the esports team summoner icons originally added in patch 5.10, including Enemy (NA) , Kabum (BR ), KLG (LAS) , and ROX (RU)
While not in today's update, we've been told the EU LCS team Elements will also be getting an icon update at some point.


Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

  • Ranger's Focus (Q) tooltip now lists "This flurry attack cannot occur on structures"
  • Volley (W) damage reduced to 20/35/50/65/80 from 40/50/60/70/80
  • Base movement speed reduced to 340 from 345
  • Phase Drive (E) damage reduced to 30/60/90/120/150 from 50/80/110/140/170

  • [REMINDER: Jayce has a large list of changes on the PBE, including being able to rank each of his abilities up to 6 and his R passively increasing in power. The numbers below are relative to the updated kit on the PBE, not to live.]
  • Shock Blast (Gun Q) damage increased to 70/120/170/220/270/320 from 60/100/160/210/260/310.
  • To the Skies (Hammer Q ) damage increased to 30/70/110/150/190/230 from  20/60/100/140/180/220.
  • Thundering Blow (Hammer E) cooldown increased to 15/14/13/12/11/10 from 14/13/12/11/10/9
  • [Note: E CD on PBE at rank 6 is still the same as CD at rank 5 on live.]

  • On the Hunt (R) delay between movement reducing from 60% to 20% reduced to 2/3/4 from 2/4/6 seconds.
  • [Note: Since this one is a little difficult to understand without the full tooltip, Sivir's R currently has an 8 second duration and for X seconds, everyone gets 60% movement speed bonus then the bonus decreases to 20%. While the total duration of her R is still 8 seconds, the time you will have 60% has been reduced.]


Hextech Sweeper (Twisted Treeline Trinket)
  • Cooldown reduced to 60 from 120.

Twisted Treeline
Death Timers
  • Reduced to [21.5 to 43] from [22.5 to 52.5]

  • The new outer lane turrets range increased to 650 from 600.
