New Summoner Icons

Fourteen new icons for the upcoming Mid Season Invitational have been added in today's update, these include icons for each of the regions participating (NA/EU LCS, LPL, LCK, and LMS) as well as an icon for the event and one for each of the wild card regions.

LCL (CIS), LJL (Japan), GPL, MSI

[Continued] Global Splash Updates

Over the next two patches (6.7 and 6.8), several older skin and champion splash arts are going to be receiving small tweaks or be replaced with versions of splash art from different regions in an effort to unify assets across all regionsSee this post for more information and continued discussion.

NOTE: Just to be clear, this is NOT the same as splash art updates for champion updates. Ququroon posted a reminder of that over on twitter with a handy image to explain the differences (and a teaser for Lil Slugger Trundle's updated splash art!!)

Here the 10+ arts changed in the 3/28 update, expect more throughout the 6.7 and 6.8 cycles.
