Summoner Icons

Three new summoner icons are now on the PBE:

2019 LCS Team Pass Icon, 2019 LEC Team Pass Icon, 2019 Fan Pass Icon
"This icon was earned by completing the level 3 X Pass mission."


  • New skin bios added this cycle:
    • Demacia Vice Garen: "As chrome eagles cry and steel panthers growl, lightning hot justice is delivered nightly by Detective Garen Stryker on the neon-drenched streets. A black belt in Ionian martial arts, this katana wielding cop pushes it to the limit with every case... for Demacia!"
    • Demacia Vice Lucian: "Half man, half machine, and all justice, Detective Lucian Phoenix fights crime under the pastel palm trees of Demacia. Rebuilt out of polished chrome and gilded Piltovan carbon fiber following a fatal gunfight, this technological marvel dispenses vaporwave vengeance as a neon beacon of law and order."
  • Lee Sin's VO was updated! Check out the new voice here:

"Here's the Sylas list I'm sending to PBE for tomorrow. This is everything collected together to be less confusing. Anything not here is removed - notably removed the lockout on the E2 > Q combo I was testing."
2) Here's Riot August with TFT balance for 7/1 and 7/3:
[1] "Here are today's (7/1) #TeamfightTactics adjustments. Big highlight is the increase to Tier 2 and Tier 3 droprates. They're live right now! As always, feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much to everyone who's been trying out the beta!"
[2] "Here's today's (7/3) #TeamfightTactics micropatch. Highlight is an important bugfix for Spear of Shojin (it was generating too much mana). It's live right now! Thanks as always for the overwhelming support!"
