Boom assets updated:



  • Blitzcrank skin bios tweaked (updating pronouns):
    • Goalkeeper Blitzcrank: "One of the all time greatest keepers for Chaos FC, Blitzcrank has finally taken their place in the Sports Hall of Fame. Their image rests proudly with the likes of Volleyball Dragon, Women's Tennis Scuttle Crab, and Badminton Baron Nashor."
    • Boom Boom Blitzcrank: "Their fists are named “boom” and “boom,” proving that robots are a perfect facsimile of human life."
    • Battle Boss Blitzcrank: "A boss hailing from a popular science fiction shooter, Blitzcrank is well known in the gaming community for cheap mechanics, powerful attacks, and a massive health pool. Veigar fittingly made them the gatekeeper of his personal fortress, because Veigar hates fun."
    • Zenith Games Blitzcrank: "Originally a bomb defusal robot, Blitzcrank was made a referee because of their ability to make split-second adjustments to stay ahead of the prodigious athletes. Only later did everyone realize that the bot's background made them unusually effective in defusing the intense... disagreements that often arise."
