  • Skin bios for each new skin this cycle were added to the client:
Snow Man Yi 
A humble snowman brought to life by the magic of the Poro King, Yi strives to become the most gallant knight in all the land… and with the imminent invasion of Ice King Twitch, he might just get his chance. 
Winter Wonder Soraka 
A kindly duchess within the court of the Poro King, Soraka's lands are filled with beautiful animals made of pristine, enchanted ice. These menageries stretch for miles, tended by her retainers. 
Ice King Twitch 
Twitch is a bitter, hateful creature who has jealously watched the Winterlands from his frozen burrow since time immemorial. Finally driven to the surface by twisted delusions of grandeur, he now seeks to usurp the Poro King, corrupting his subjects with an ancient, icy curse. 
Frozen Prince Mundo 
Once a handsome prince from an outlying region of the Winterlands, Mundo was touched by the curse of Ice King Twitch—corrupting him into a brutish thrall. He's still convinced he's the same statuesque royal as before, and as such… goes where he pleases. 
Winter Wonder Neeko 
An ancient and mysterious winter sprite, Neeko regards the world around her with an almost childlike curiosity. Having recently returned from beyond the Poro King's vast domain, she has become enamored with the civilization that has risen in her absence. 
Hextech Renekton 
As is so often the way, artificers of the Hextech Renaissance pushed too far and too fast into their new science, without fully considering the possible consequences. Renekton—a half-mad monster of flesh and metal—is the result of that shortsightedness. 
K/DA Akali Prestige Edition 
K/DA Akali is on fire right now, spitting rap solos at the Pop Music Awards—and her prestigious costume is exactly what you'd expect from the new golden child of pop."

Context & Notes

1) Riot Sirhaian on K/DA Akali Prestige Edition changes:
[1] "Following player feedback, I just committed a change to Prestige K/DA Akali's neon form to better fit the skin theme. It should hit PBE tomorrow. Let me know if you have any feedback! 
PBE Feedback Thread: https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/Ouvd3T1I-pbe-bugs-feedback-thread-kda-akali-prestige-edition …"
[2] "As some people have pointed out, this is how her recall will look like. First tweet's screen had a small bug which is now fixed (oops!). Stay on the look out for tomorrow's PBE update and feel free to share your feedback!"
2) Meddler noted no gameplay thoughts today, should see one tomorrow:
"No QGT post today, going to do one tomorrow instead when we've got a few more preseason observations to talk about and a bit of early data."
