Context & Notes

1) Check out the 11.7 patch preview from Riot Scruffy:
"11.7 Patch Preview  
Should be a reasonable shakeup to the jungle, bot, and support metas. More info on the detailed changes tomorrow."

2) Here's updates from the feedback threads for the Space Groove skins this cycle:

"Hair color updated from Maroon to Pink 
Updated hair Texture such that on animations where the helmet flips up it is not of a flat shading 
Fixed clipping of hair on helmet on CTRL+4 
Slight adjustment on planet/sphere on helmet"

 Space Groove Lux

"Edited to add PBE feedback change notes. Last updated March 22nd. 
The following changes will be made during the current PBE cycle:
  • Model's skirt will be updated to be more cohesive with the splash art.
  • E explosion VFX will be updated to be less like base, and more groovy!
  • E needed more variations, so 2 more music variations on her E will be added! (Now up to 3 different space groove music!)
  • No changes are planned for the Q. Context for the Q.
  • Lux will not be receiving Star Guardian Lux's idle animation, nor any new animations. She will be using her base animations, as to keep custom animations unique to their original skin.
  • That said, from the animator: Full Context
    • (R): I hid the spinning staff in her ult to make it feel more consistent with her (W) and recall (wand channeling/transforming into groovy baby Barney).
    • Run: Reverted back to base (I did smooth out the hair a bit though).
March 22nd - This is the final call from the team."

Space Groove Nunu

"Updated SFX for Space Groove Nunu's CTRL+3"
"Edited to add PBE feedback change notes.
The following changes will be made during the current PBE cycle:
  • Audio during (R) will be made louder.
  • Adding more impact to his (Q) to make it feel stronger.
  • His backside will be staying as is.
  • Filled in the (E) decal a bit more so it's less empty!"

1) Riot TinyBun provided details on changes to Space Groove Samira's splash art and summoner icons:
"Hey friends! @jessihasbeans is adjusting Samira's face and the color of her eyes to green in her splash. Here's a mockup (w/o eyes) from @raspbearyart@LagunayaART will also be updating the icon's eyes to green to match the model. Thanks for all your feedback & stay groovy!✨"
She added:
"Now with green, and a pass on champion likeness! the splash will be integrated soon!"
