Context & Notes

1) Check out the latest from the PBE feedback threads over on r/LeaguePBE:

  • W - Replaced with shells & coral
  • W - Boosted size of interior water jet
  • E - Added more water
  • R - Replaced shells with corals
Scope creep, not this time:
  • W - There will be no further wave effects in the W, we are satisfied the amount present is appropriate for a wave washing in.
  • R - We are not adding more water splash to the R, there is already a lot of splash. We need to be mindful of readability in the gameplay space - the other champions need their space too.
  • Color contrast/clothing/neons/gloves - The high contrast, high color variance, mix-match theme is exactly on point for Pool Party. This is the aesthetic we aim to achieve. We wont be making any change to the color or contrast of Sett (or his ears) - he is just gonna have to chill and enjoy the vacay vibes!
  • Flowers - We will not be making any changes to the size of the flowers. We have several issues affecting us in this area. I will go into a little more depth as I know this was a popular callout.
  • The flowers do form part of his silhouette but we could manage that with sizing to some degree. The more difficult part is that the flowers are part of his rig, that's his 'skeleton' - so when he moves, the flowers move with him. If we start pulling his flowers apart and resizing them we are going to deform him. Once he is deformed we have to fix the model and repaint it. This amount of work is above what we can consider for a PBE feedback request due to the nature of the amount of development time we will have to spend reworking him.
Awaiting Response:
  • Audio: "Cannonball" on R!"

  • W - Edited to look a little more on-theme.
  • Model - Evened out his body tone/tan.
Not this time:
  • Chest Hair - We can't reconcile this with the design direction we want for Braum in Pool Party and won't be making this change.
  • Sunglass/Moustache/Belt/Dad look - Braum is clearly not a spring chicken. Nor is he hip like Ekko or K/DA. We like the awkward dad look, it's roughly what we were going for."

"11.12 preview with tentative changes. 
The team added a few more champs and is finalizing the tuning so a few things may still change."
