Context & Notes

1) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads:

"Post PBE Cycle update:
  • 'Mist trail' during walk has been removed
  • Crown indicating Champion possessed by Viego has been enlarged
Thanks for all constructive feedback and comments!"

Zenith Games Jayce

"Post PBE Cycle update:
  • When striking an enemy with Q in Hammer form, there is now a decaying part on the ground.
  • Jayce's bottom part was already buffed to be more prominent thus no more changes will be made here.
Thanks for constructive comments!"

Zenith Games Blitzcrank

"Post PBE cycle update: 
There was not enough actionable feedback in the thread, therefore no changes were made to the skin."

Zenith Games Lee Sin

Post PBE cycle update:
We will make the change to Lee Sin's hairstyle to bring his silhouette closer to other skins. However, this change may not be in time to make to the live servers for the release day.

As always, thanks for all constructive comments.
Chromas
"Post PBE updates:

Zenith Games Jayce:
  • Hair color for Jayce has been changed on some chromas. Below is the new link to the new images, do take a look at them!
