Patch 12.3 Notes

Check out the Patch 12.3 Notes:
"Season 2022 is in bloom! 
We've carefully plucked a delicate bouquet for you this patch, including several champion nerfs and a significant update to the fighter item system. This is also our first patch reacting to Pro play on the preseason meta, so there's a lot of focus on balancing that skill bracket this week. Ahri's champion refresh is another part of the floral mix and, last but not leaf, the rest of the Crystal Rose and Withered Rose skins will be available soon. ❀ 
Allergies acting up with all this flowery language? Head on over to the pollen-free TFT patch notes here!

  • TAKE NOTES Fixed a bug where Seraphine's abilities would get canceled if cast while attacking an enemy with a Passive - Stage Presence empowered basic attack
Twisted Fate
  • ANY CARD Fixed a bug that caused Twisted Fate's next basic attack after using W - Pick a Card to have a slight delay
  • STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE Fixed a bug where Ahri's E - Charm could interrupt Unstoppable enemies, such as Malphite during his R - Unstoppable Force 
Crystal Rose Akshan, Crystal Rose Janna, and Withered Rose Elise will be available February 10, 2022."

Voting Results: Champion Update & Thematic Revamp

The results of the VGU & Skin Thematic polls have been announced - "Drumroll please! The VGU and skin thematic winners are…"
"Your votes are in: Skarner and Gothic are the winners of the Season 2022 polls! 
Skarner, the Crystal Vanguard

With a decisive victory, the champion that will receive the next VGU will be Skarner!
Loads of you gave the Rift’s one and only scorpion some love this time around. Skarner stood head and shoulders (do scorpions even have shoulders?) above the other contenders, claiming the top spot in the global polls by a wide margin. 
Ryan “Reav3” Mireles, Lead Producer of Champions: We’re super excited that Skarner won the VGU vote, as we think he has tons of potential to be something truly special on the League roster. We’ve tried smaller reworks of Skarner’s kit in the past, but it never really increased his playrate, so we’ll be looking to do a massive reboot of his kit, theme, and visuals (similar to Sion and Urgot). We’ll look to keep his kidnapping ult in some form, but otherwise we’ll be rebuilding him from the ground up. 
The Brackern don’t have tons of lore currently, and we’re looking forward to diving deeper into their world and backstory. It’ll still be a couple months until we get started, but once we do we’ll share our progress in dev blogs so we can get your feedback on our scorpion friend. So keep an eye out for one of those later this year. 
Before I go, I wanted to talk about our forever-a-bridesmaid, Shyvana. We know a lot of you are disappointed that our favorite half-dragon lady keeps getting so close to winning without ever taking the crown. Like many of you, we really want to see her updated because a badass half-dragon shifter has so much potential. As you know we don’t do votes for every VGU, like with Mundo. So while we can’t promise that Shyvana will be the next big VGU we do, she is a pretty strong contender for the next one we explore outside of a VGU vote. 
Be sure to keep an eye out for updates on Skarner’s VGU this year, and we’ll be sure to share any plans for updating other champions as they come up! 
Getting Gothic

Similar to the VGU poll, the skin thematic revamp poll resulted in a landslide victory for Gothic in every region. Infernal came in a distant second, with Arclight hot on its trail.
Please leave all overcoats, canes, and top hats with the doorman, because we’re about to get Gothic. 
We’re excited to see this level of former emo kids excitement and can’t wait to deliver this angsty thematic. 
We haven’t visited the Gothic thematic in a minute—and much like emo—we’re glad it’s not dead. We’re really excited at how our middle school aesthetic might look in current League, and there are a bunch of different directions we could take it. We've started exploring some of them already, as we’re well into the discovery process—from cute and spooky to serious and dark, there are so many shades of black for us to try on. Our next steps are identifying what feels really good about the existing Gothic skins, and which direction we’d like to move in for the new skins! 
We’ll check back in on things later, but for now we’re looking forward to approaching this thematic with a sense of poise and rationality. 
From everyone on the team, a HUGE thank you for your votes, feedback, and enthusiasm for the future of League! It’s always exciting to hear all of your thoughts and to be able to incorporate them into the game."

Teamfight Tactics Patch 12.3 Notes

"Welcome Gizmoneers and Gadgeteers! 
Most of our larger balance changes for patch 12.3 were delivered early last week in our 12.2 mid-week patch, so be sure to check those out if your looking for nerfs to Imperial, Swain, Talon, and more. That said, here are some light patch updates in preparation of Neon Nights next week! 
Light as the patch notes may be, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring a progress-fueled mid-set with over 20 new units, over 80 new Augments, and a whole lotta content to bring your cosmetic loadout into the future. Check out the articles below for more information.
