Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot Scruffy with the 11.9 Patch Preview:
"11.9 Patch Preview with the tentative changes: 
While doing the Hecarim nerfs we wanted to shift his power so that tank build has notably less damage (but still tanky) making room for a viable damage build."

2) Check out updates from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads for skins and chromas this cycle:

"Post PBE cycle update: 
Thanks for all constructive feedback and comments! We decided to make following changes to Conqueror Jax based on you input:
  • Weapon shape has been altered to make it more blunt. This should help to make his silhouette more distinct when compared to Xin Zhao
  • Grandmaster Might's 3rd attack SFX now has more 'OOMPH' and should be more satisfactory
We also heard your comments about colors not being aligned with previous Conqueror Skins. However we had to limit the changes to mentioned above as too many other teams are using assets that reference used design. That being said, we will also make considerations for future naming of skins which color scheme is significantly different in comparison to established skinlines."
"Post PBE cycle update
Thanks for all constructive feedback and comments! 
  • We've fixed the position of triangular element on the sleeve, so it will follow the natural hand position more closely
  • Grandmaster Might's 3rd attack SFX now has more 'OOMPH' and should be more satisfactory
Similarly to Conqueror Jax, we had to limit the changes as other teams were using this design for reference in their work. 
Thanks for all constructive comments!"
"LATEST FINAL FEEDBACK RESPONSE 21ST APR 2021 
Updated skintone to closer match the splash and recent cinematics
(This change will likely not make it into the next immediate patch but the one following)"
"Post-PBE cycle note: 
- We decided to not make notable changes"
