Whenever I launch the client, the automatic patcher doesn't read or download any files. After it fails, "Error Code 004" pops up as the error message. Attempts to fix this include restarting the client multiple time. Also tried running as admin, not sure what else to do. If anyone has handled this problem before or has any ideas for a solution, that would be much appreciated.
Shofa
Thanks so much for the report, Shofa! We’ve found the problem and it should be fixed tomorrow. If you’re having problems updating tomorrow, just keep trying after a minute or two so the client tries to use a different server to download the update.

Hello, friends! Thank you all for the Galaxy Slayer Zed feedback! To address some of the points on here (and other places): **"Give Zed a toggle to switch between armored and nekkid form"** • Sorry, we won't be implementing a toggle for this skin. Because this skin has a _ton_ of extra submeshes (blades, claws, spikes, etc.) that play around his Zed's typical silhouette, size, and shape, we chose early on to keep him in his recognizable armored form during all gameplay moments (e.g. running around, using abilities, auto-attacking) to maintain gameplay readability. We wanted to show off his shirtless form during non-gameplay moments (e.g. recall, emotes, death). Implementing a toggle at this point is just not feasible due to all the readability issues, extra tech, reworking animations/models, etc. Knowing how much y'all want a toggle for something like this though, we'll keep this in mind for any similar skin features! **"Change his hair! I want X color / Y style / Z length." • We honestly didn't think that his hair would be such a contentious aspect of the skin (seems like hair is a pretty important aspect to y'all when it comes to skins). We won't be changing his hair at this point because there are players that do like the current version and changing the hair in one area means changing across a bunch of other related areas. We'll keep this in mind for the future, so we can avoid these kinds of hairy situations. **"The R and E have shorter range."** • The range is exactly the same! It might be a perception issue when comparing to Classic Zed. We'll be monitoring this to see if there are adjustments we should make to have this feel better. **"The Q feels sluggish."** • The floatiness of the animation seems to be the culprit here. We're gonna watch this because some players like the current animation. We'll see if we should make it feel heavier.
Nice work, just Fix the sound of the second Q of Camille, it's insane we can't hear it. Hair just for the look. But the second Q is a very big gameplay's problem. I hope i'm clear, my english wasn't really good at all.

Hello, I would like to give some feedback on the Invictous Gaming Fiora skin. First of all, it looks and feels amazing to play with. You guys did a really good job! But can you guys: 1) Make it easier to distinguish between the Ult vitals and the Passive vitals? 2) Make the vital spawning animation easier to see? Being able to tell where the vitals are and if it comes from the Ult or from the Passive is really important. In fact, Pool Party Fiora is usually considered the worst Fiora skin by Fiora mains, not because of the looks, but because using that skin makes vitals harder to see. On the other hand, Project Fiora is usually considered the best Fiora skin because it makes vitals easier to see. Side by side comparison: https://files.catbox.moe/9fh0zj.png So, it's kind of hard to distinguish between the Ult vitals and the Passive vitals on this skin. It makes fighting multiple opponents confusing. And about the vital spawning clarity: https://files.catbox.moe/slr04l.png The sooner the player can clearly see where the vital is going to spawn, the faster he'll be able to position himself to hit it. Sometimes that's the difference between wining or losing a fight, so it's really important. I think the vital spawning animation is hard to see not only on this skin, but on Classic and Pool Party Fiora too. Project Fiora animations are more clear and that's why it's such a good skin. So if you guys could make some changes to improve these things/overall clarity, it would be very welcome. The easier the vitals are to see, the better. Thanks for your attention. edit: Invictus Gaming Fiora skin Feedback thread on r/FioraMains: https://www.reddit.com/r/FioraMains/comments/b9wrkl/invictus_gaming_fiora_skin_feedback/

Hey Ahlas! Thank you for the feedback, we're going to take a look at the vitals VFX for the passive and ult and see if we can adjust it so it reads a little better. Thank you for calling this out to us! -Riot GrumboJr

I'm extremely happy to finally have a nidalee chroma and for this skin too. Challenger nidalee was already one of if not her best skin but the original color choice was a pretty big problem with most nidalee players that I've talked too. However I'm seeing one really big complaint among nidalee players with the chroma and that is the fact that all her animations are still pink. If you could change her colors to better match the skin that would be great or even take the animations from her base skin or other skins even it would probably be much better.

I completely understand where you're coming from, but unfortunately, we aren't changing any of the VFX for Chromas, so any VFX-related things will have the same colors as their parent skin
i agree with you, Ahri's hair is the same color as the head piece.

Challenger Ahri looks amazing in gold, but the only issue i have is her Fox-Fire. It just doesn't fit the gold aesthetic of the chroma maybe change the color to a more orange-ish color with a bit of yellow?

I really like these chromas, Karma is gorgeous. :) However, Ahri's hair color is too blonde, it matches the headpiece too much.

Good catch! Thanks for your feedback!
I personally think crystals should look more reddish like the base skin, but not the exact same. in example the pure orange on Varus chroma gets me out of the theme, combining gold with red (pink on challenger skins) could be cooler than just orange. The orange in Alistar chroma is better, but i would make it even more reddish, just a little on all.

Hey all! We've got some feedback updates for you on some of our Invictus Gaming skins! Camille: Camille's passive VFX has been updated! https://imgur.com/a/EogD32W https://imgur.com/a/AP4owBh https://imgur.com/a/66vong0 Kai'sa: Kai'sa's shield has been darkened! https://imgur.com/a/LxVf4zo LeBlanc: As mentioned by Riot Beardilocks, Leblanc has darker makeup added to the splash and model. Please let us know if you have any further questions or feedback. Thanks!
Hello! Solid skin, i like it. Just 2 things come to mind when looking at it: the logo on the ground after Q is cool, would be nice to have it last a little longer, it disappears very quickly, let people watch it ;) And second, the red aoe around Alistar during his R really reminds me of a shield, while it's cool i'm afraid it could lack a little clarity in game, maybe limiting it to the legs and not wrap Ali completely could be an answer to that. Overall cool skin!
Evhel
Thanks for the feedback evhel, I'll ask our game designer to look around his kit with your R feedback in mind.
i feel like him not having eyes at all will help deliver the theme of a sentient golem more, like the gem takes up the entire upper part of his face, like Arclight Brand or Liss also his abilities should be more red and black instead of gold? this was the case for Conqueror Varus
PBE ProNoob
We decided to put a gold take on his kit this time, as for no eyes, hmm you may be right.

Can you please add LeBlanc's signature Eye Teardrops to distinguish her from the other ladies of the group. She has a bit of 'same face syndrome' with the other ladies in the splash art, but other than that SHE LOOKS FABULOUS AND I AM QUAKING. Additionally, I saw someone else suggest **adding wings** to her dash like all the other girls have (Camille, Irelia, Fiora ETC.) It would be epic to see her spread her wings as she dashes at you!' **EDIT:** Saw Fairy Flan commented why the wings aren't on the dash, understandable that it would look funny since you can change how long/short the dash is depending on how far you decide to dash - instead we were given wing particles radiating off the cape at all times, which I think looks elegant af so I'll take it! <3 My only suggestion for the wings is to allow them to pop-out during her dance, taunt and joke? I'm thinking American Horror Story, Angel of Death vibes - pretty stiff wings that move only subtly when she dances, jokes or taunts. it would be awesome for her to use her wings in some way if she doesn't have them in her recall! Link to AHS Image for inspiration! <3 https://akns-images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20151114/rs_1024x759-151214135134-1024.Frances-Conroy-AHS-Asylum-Shachath.ms.121415.jpg
SigiI of Balance
Hi, We decided to emphasize Leblanc's eye makeup more with darker teardrops. https://imgur.com/EEWLtzu Thanks for you feedback.
Finally had a chance to try her out. Here are some gripes I have with the skin. **Outfit/Model** Her dress and the interior of her lashers are wayyyyy too yellow, in the splash and in-game (in and out of Demon Shade). https://imgur.com/a/AbMj9IZ Her hair looks fine when out of Demon Shade, but when in Demon Shade her glowy hair obscures her *iconic* shades which I think is a big no-no. I'd prefer if y'all would change her hair so it doesn't fall in her face, but if not then make her hair much less glowy in Demon Shade. I agree with the comments that say they prefer Evelynn to have reddish hair. I think it'd give I bit of contrast to the skin. https://imgur.com/a/IVI8tpB In the base skin's Demon Shade, she had a nice balance of things going on the upper and lower parts of her model. For the upper part, the fur of her outfit looks like it glows like her hair and shades. For the lower half, the eyes are drawn to the lasher tips. In the Prestige version, I think the hair glows too much, obscuring her shades. The back of her jacket looks too plain; maybe add the K/DA logo or a heart on the back perhaps. For the lower half, I really think y'all should rethink having her dress glow so much; it makes her look like she has a golden baboon's ass. https://imgur.com/a/rs5IzhN Out of Demon Shade, the base skin's outfit is sleek, sexy, and visually interesting to look at. I love her asymmetrical skirt with gold accents, and it is cohesive with the upper half of her outfit, with her plain black top with gold necklaces. To prevent her look from being too monotonous, she has the sleeves with fur as well as fur around the back of her top. The Prestige version's current outfit doesn't give me much to look at. I like her jacket, but the back of it is too plain. Maybe there can be some designs on the sleeves of the jacket as well. I think the garters are a nice touch, though they could be placed a little lower since the dress blocks it out. Speaking of the dress... it's bad. Please stop using that crappy golden yellow color; it isn't flattering on *anyone*. This dress is so boring to look at as well. If you want to keep the dress, change the color and add some cutouts to the dress to make it pop. I say throw the whole dress away though. Go with a strappy, skintight romper and add a little fur somewhere in the outfit. And for the love of God don't make it monochromatic as hell. https://imgur.com/a/id4zEQ2 Ooooooh, almost forgot about her face. What's up with her face looking drastically different from base K/DA? **VFX** I'm sorry, but her Q spikes look piss yellow. Thought y'all learned your lesson with Ahri... The heart that fills up with her W also has a gross looking gold color. Too saturated and bronze-y/amber looking. https://imgur.com/a/U0u5OOP I'm also not a fan of the dusky blackish-brown color Evelynn is in Demon Shade. https://imgur.com/a/87PPHz9
MoreKalistaSkins
Hiya! Please try her out again today, we made sweeping changes on almost all VFX and lashers.
i like the look of the unempowered E, the diamond tips look great. i think the empowered E glow is a little too much though. it almost looks ghostly white. maybe its just the picture

Hey guys, just wanted to update that we are listening and taking in all your feedback, and are very appreciative. We're working on her lasher and overall model colors to be blue and a different type of yellow, respectively. We're also addressing the feedback on the empowered E not looking different enough as well. **WORK IN PROGRESS** https://i.imgur.com/7CEwV9Z.png **WORK IN PROGRESS** Thanks for the continued patience and I'll have an update tonight or tomorrow. {{summoner:31}} The update should show many things including various vfx tweaks. I want to point out here that Q VFX will not be a monotonous gold as commented, too.
Hey Kiwi just wanted ask if Ali is price split with the MSI prize pool by the same amount like last year
Spideraxe
Yes! Updated post.
Hey @Fairy Flan ! I don't know if you're in charge of such things, but one thing that we LB mains would love to see on that (already amazing <3) skin is the return of her iconic Eye makeup. Our subreddit and discord are all about it, it would make such a perfect skin. Do you think you guys could look into this? Thank you so much for all of your work and dedication to the community!
Rose Noire PBE
Thanks for the ping Rose Noire! I can't promise any changes for the eye-makeup, but I can at least assure you that there is a conversation started about this internally. Every change we make takes a lot of coordination between a bunch of teams _(like skins, publishing, ecommerce and worldwide teams)_ to make sure everyone is up to date and stuff! I'm sorry it's not a better answer, but we are definitely looking at all the eye makeup comments!
Honestly? Awesome skins. I'm impressed. And i don't even play most of the champs (Rakan only), but very very very nice skins. Wish Ivern could have had something as cool as this. The only thing thing i don't understand is the blue and yellow on Fiora's E, is that a clarity thing or a choice? The first hit black and the second white (or viceversa) would suit it much better imho. A great job nonetheless, very well done!
Evhel
We had a black/white version in early playtests, but the feedback from internal Fiora mains was that the blue and yellow helped telegraph the slow and crit strikes. Gameplay also suggested we keep to the color scheme as well, so you are right to assume that this was for game clarity!
Hello! I actually have a question, i'm curious about! Would it be possible to add the Raven's wings to LeBlanc's' W+RW, like the other IG skins have on their dashes!? This would be a nice addition. But the skin is perfect without the wings nonetheless! Thanks, Bess
Bess
Hey Bess! I did try to add wings to her W/RW through VFX, but it ended up doing weird things since her jump is fast and can be at drastically different lengths. Also looked kinda weird over her cape, bleh. I tried to make up for no wings on her model by giving her an ambient black feather effect coming off of her cape at all times ><

Riot Orphyre
These team skins get better every year and these are my personal favorites! The color scheme and everything looks really neat. The wings are amazing, especially the one on Camille E. My only somewhat problem is that, why did Rakan get a skin without Xayah? I thought it was their thing and I found it really cool. Wish you guys didn't change that. Also the fact that he just got SSG makes this skin even more unexpected.
TaricBestGirl
Heya TaricBestGirl! I'm really glad you're enjoying the IG skins, we put a lot of hard work into making them as awesome as possible! To answer your concern, the reason why Rakan was chosen without Xayah is because the players will request the champion they want for their skin (so long as they could play said champion during Worlds), and so Baolan requested that Rakan be his represented champion. That means that we had to leave Xayah without a skin as Kai'sa was chosen by Jackylove. Hope this clears things up! -Riot GrumboJr
Hello! The Rakan wing cape being white instead of black kinda makes him look too different from the other skins, where all the wings are black. Plus all the white overpowers the skin a bit, and makes his ears look a bit silly since its the only black present on his skin. Would it be possible to have a a black cape or black details on his cape? Edit: just to clarify, i'm asking about the feather part of his cape, not the fabric cape.
mitamakoto
If I am remembering correctly, Baolan specifically requested to not be as dark/fallen angel as the rest of the group. Instead, he wanted to be more rainbow/white/prismatic. I'm not sure it would be possible to add black in opposition to his request ><" Though I'm not sure if he would make an exception!
I don't have any complaints to make for LeBlanc. IG LeBlanc is elegant, beautiful, astonishing, well made...Thank You Riot (And Rookie) for this incredible skin. It's a perfect fit for her, she looks really perfect, AMAZING VFX and SFX. I'm in love with this mix of Black and White, which was super good and fitting for LeBlanc. THANK YOU! Awesome job! All IG skins looks good, well made and awesome! {{sticker:katarina-love}} {{sticker:sg-lux}}

Hey all, Fairy Flan here. I’m a VFX artist on the skins teams, specifically the team that made Dunkmaster Ivern. I’m here to talk a little bit about the changes we recently made to Dunkmaster Ivern and acknowledge everyone’s feedback. Going through the PBE posts, Ivern main subreddit, social, I definitely saw a lot of feedback around the thematic that we chose for Ivern. While we’re really happy to see some players are excited for Dunkmaster, we know a number of you were expecting a darker thematic and we disappointed you. We do try and find the best possible fit for thematic and champion, but that doesn’t always mean we nail it for everyone. That said, you all did give us some really great suggestions for Dunkmaster Ivern and we took them and made some changes to the skin: * Fresh new coat of paint on Iverns backboard (and a new backboard in general!) * New asset in Ivern Taunt * New asset in Bush spawn on W * Amped up SFX * Clearer vfx on passive camp We learned a lot throughout this whole process and will definitely use all of your feedback when we approach future skins. We hope that these changes make Dunkmaster Ivern a better skin for you all to enjoy and really do appreciate all of your input! -Fairy Flan _PS - Sorry this post took longer than you’re probably used to, we were working on some Ivern changes! _

I don't work on the Skin team but I do work on his Chromas. Be assured that the team have been thinking/discussing about this very extensively. From what I know, there haven't been communication around it because they are still trying to see what changes are possible to be made. The Chroma team is on standby to match these last minute changes. I feel for the skins team as It is hard to be answering every comment, especially when time is tight for Ivern. However, I do think we can do better to keep everyone in the loops.

If an ally Twitch appears on your screen whilst using Q- Ambush, it causes your own music to decrease in volume. 2 games, occurred every time Twitch appeared using Ambush on my screen Getting a skin boost on some of the newer champions with few skins won't grant a skin for them. Point at which this stops happening appears to be somewhere between Aurelion Sol (In champ select as Aurelion Sol, skin granted) and Xayah/Rakan (Played as Xayah, no skin granted)

Yes indeed he is. From my own investigation, it isn't just Katarina. It's applied to every champion. During the pick screen, right after the ban phase where you'll be given random champion, you'll hear additional voice of a champion that was banned by the opponent side. For example: I got {{champion:53}} , their team ban {{champion:45}} , I heard both {{champion:53}} voice and {{champion:45}} voice.

In ban phase, sometimes you will hear a ban quote for one of the champions banned by the enemy team when enemy team's bans are revealed. Around 80-90% reproduction rate

Hi, I am a representative from the Ivern Mains Discord. We've talked and we made a document to show you how we think the chromas should be tweaked to make them better. We've already sent this document to Riot Lexi but just in case you missed it, we posted it here : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zYfAWHBDHbBKMCqGgyFzEtjD8SBI5dvKSit-jSvWtBM/edit

This might not be relevant to the chromas but I really need to get my and many others opinion about the W heard. First of all, I think the chromas look good and give different looks which are very nice. Now to my point, the W on this skin NEEDS to change. If we go back to Candy King Ivern and the W on that skin, it was a slight change that didn't was too eye catching,which was perfect! As a Master player who mains Ivern i can't imagine to play with a skin that makes me look at the W and think: "why are there random sticks poking out the the bush, they are so out of place?". I would love to see the W change for the better and remove the sticks poking out and maybe implement a slightly different color to the bushes that he creates? Maybe it can be depending on the chroma he uses? For example, if I play with the Aquamarine chroma, the bushes will have a slightly blue bushcolor, that would make me super happy with the skin. Right now I sadly think the W looks so terrible and I might just stick to the Candy King Ivern skin instead but don't get me wrong, i really want Dunkmaster Ivern to be a skin that the Ivern-main can be proud of! I know all of this isnt relevant to you Orphyre but I beg you, pls get this point across to someone who are more resonsible for the W animation! Thanks and best regards, Wictrec ("EUW"), Abrahamsson ("PBE").

Thanks for your feedback! I recommend posting this in the Dunkmaster Ivern feedback thread if you could too, as the sticks poking out of the bush are all from the parent skin--the Chromas haven't done anything to change these As for different bush colors, I think there's some limitations to that, as not all bush colors will look appropriate, but I do understand what you mean, having each Chromas' bush be slightly different would be cool I'll definitely pass along your feedback about the push to the team working on the Dunkmaster Ivern parent skin!
can perfect timing reduce CD on Mariner?
PBE ProNoob
Great question. Honestly it should. It likely won't for this event, but if the item became permanent we would for sure make this change. Great catch!
So considering we're talking experimental aram changes, how possible would a reroll quality of life change be for all all random type game modes be? To clarify I mean a few things: 1. Some system that gives the person who rerolled first dibs on their choice between the champion they rerolled and the champ they got rerolled into, a little too often I'll be nice and use a reroll because I'll have it back next game just so my teammates can have one more option and the enemy team can have 1 less option, only to see someone on my team instanly take the champ I rerolled(this might mean you'd have to dictate a short period where people can't reroll and can only trade champs with others in the pool) 2. While not about rerolls, it is closely related: if someone dodges an all random game mode queue everyone in the game but the dodger gets the option to just have the next queue be 100% random or have a slightly higher chance to get the initial champ you got, while the person who dodged will 100% have the champion they randomly got when they dodged and they're locked out of trades and rerolls that they initiate.(not sure if some dodge punishment like this is already in for all random modes or not, never really dodged even if I got a champ I thought I couldn't play well at the time. As someone who likes all random game modes, I don't mind when randomness gives someone a champ they don't know how to play and they do awful, but I do mind when randomness gives someone a champ they don't know how to play and they dodge).

We don't have reroll changes planned for this time, but there are some I'd love to make in the future!
Im just wondering, why do I see Sona getting nerfed but i cannot find Nami or Brand or Malzahar in there?
Ahris BF
Sona is EXCEPTIONALLY strong (68% win rate+), where as the others are just kind of strong (~54%).
what about the heal bot soraka/nami and for rune they seem so much better also the -15% to ziggs seems a bit much he is not an auto win
Kemp
Both of those champs aren't particularly high win rates, so no immediate plans to change them.
I play aram a lot more than your average player, it is my go to mode to relax when I'm not playing with friends. So here are my thoughts on the ARAM changes: **A ban phase has been added to ARAM. Everyone bans a champ (10 bans total), then random champs are assigned** I am ok with this as low and behold there are certain champions that dominate ARAM and makes some games very easy as the champion either pokes heavily or excels in team fighting . Though my worry is that certain champions will never be played because of the bans. **Damage from champions more than 900 range away is reduced by 15% (excluding Ultimates and DoTs). ** I don't really know how I feel about this change. On the one hand, we have a team with no poke and a team with poke. The team with no poke has a very strong engage at lvl 6 and they sustain their way there with the damage reduction and healing relics. They build semi-tank and simply rely on their all in to finish fights. But then the other hand you have a heavy poke team against an average comp where their high range simply bullies them out of the lane. For this change, I would make the range bigger and make the reduction a little more stronger. Again not sure how I feel about this. **At 15:00, minions begin spawning more often and moving faster, maxing out at 25:00 Champions deal 10% bonus damage to structures. At 15:00 that bonus begins increasing, maxing at 30% at 25:00** 100% agree on Riot's idea of "game is approaching 25 minute mark and this is ARAM, this needs to end soon". ARAMs are quick and team fighting orientated game mode so I don't think having a stalled out game will fit into that. Now making towers fall quicker is important to make ARAM games shorter BUT I would at least have towers who will back my team up when 5 enemies dive us. Making towers take extra damage from champions is alright with me but I want towers to be a threat to fear and not just an obstacle to overcome. Maybe the same bonus damage to the tower? % true damage conversion? Just ideas, the towers in ARAM are already very underwhelming so making them fall even more quicker doesn't feel too good without some trade off. **A new Summoner Spell, Backtrack, replaces Barrier. It gives a small shield on activation, then 3 seconds later sends you back towards your fountain. (Further for melee champions.)** I personally love taking Barrier in ARAM simply because of the baiting potential and since Heal is reduced in ARAM, but replacing Barrier with Backtrack doesn't look like a good idea. Since Backtrack is the replacement for Barrier, I don't mind if the shield amount is reduced, but when you have a ticking pull back, that's when I question taking it. Fights can play out very differently in mere moments and there will be times where you need to use the shield portion before even thinking about the dash component. I can imagine a situation where you need to shield yourself to live a little longer for a very important cooldown and when you finally have it up and there is an opportunity to use it, you get denied by the pull back. This summoner with definitely be a niche for certain champs (cough Skarner) but I wouldn't trade it for Barrier any day. **New Items & Changes to Existing Items: Mariner’s Vengeance Warmog’s Armor Ghostwalkers** Mariner's Vengeance can go either way, either to resurrect and get cc'ed right after becoming a slight annoyance OR a team who tried desperately to kill you (a fed carry) now must kill you again and such a short notice that your important (a stun or lockdown ability) ability isn't up yet. I do have questions about ultimate buffs/effects such as Master Yi's Highlander, Vladimir's Hemoplague, Riven's Blade of Exile. DOes Master Yi still have his attack speed and movement speed buff? Does Vlad still do bonus damage to his targets? Does Riven get to keep AD buff and can she recast her ult if already casted? I would like to know more about the interaction of the item before really questioning whether it should be released. Ghostwalkers! Loved this item and making it so you have to be out of combat was just the balance nerf it needed. Warmong's Armor was a big problem in ARAM, you go tank and pick up a Warmong's and you become a meat shield that purposely takes damage, gets low, leave enemy line of sight (or if you a big douche) laugh spam as you regen all the health you lost. Very annoying to face and I like the approach to missing health instead of max health. **Runes Balance** Finally, certain runes (Presence of Mind) were must have because of the team fighting nature of ARAM so i am happy that Riot is balancing strong AND weak runes. **Champion Balance** Now this is where I am a bit iffy, I think champion specific nerfs in ARAM is not the way to go. For one thing, ARAM is just normals but you are in one lane in 5v5, you skip laning phase and you go into the team fighting phase. So nerfing and buffing a champion might be off putting to some ("Wow I did more damage than expected" or "Wow I did less damage than expected"). I think buffing a certain champion will definitely be a mistake, if that champion gets ahead then their buffs will make them even more stronger. Then again the buffs are going to champions that RIot thinks struggle in ARAM but in most cases these "struggling" champions can get a comp that supports that champion play style and can snowball said struggling champions. In all honesty, I feel it is best to push the changes above through EXCEPT the Champion Balance changes (MAYBE keep the nerfs, but assess the champions carefully). When it comes to changes like the poke damage reduction and bans, I don't think there is a need to balance champions specifically in ARAM, PLUS a lot of people just dealt with out of line champions for the past couple years so I don't think they are necessary. *And to add a little detail I MAY OR MAY NOT have 1000+ games on ARAM (kind of embarassing lmao)*

Thanks for the lengthy feedback! Give it a try and let us know if you still feel the same after. We're doing this as an event, so if it doesn't work out we can revert :)
So I´ve been playing a few games of the "new" ARAM, it kinda feels like comebacks aren´t possible now. Games get very onesided if a team wins the first 2 fights in the game, and then the minion waves start to spawn faster, which makes it imposiible to defend properly. So please, change the minion spawn rates or don´t touch them at all. It is very frustrating that games get decided after 6 minutes in the game
AndrushaTV
How long are the games lasting? The minion changes don't take effect until 15 minutes and even then they are slow to ramp up. If you can share some examples of games I'll take a look!

Possible Katarina voice line bug in new ARAM. When you get Katarina, you can hear additional male voice. Could be new ARAM announcer voice but I think it's Darius's. Both sound played at the same time.

Can u make It 8000 rp like the As in the past that will make the people happy
DhiaSenpai
We no longer can grant RP the way we did before, and 3000 is where we are starting. I'm monitoring buying patterns to see if the amount is insufficient.
its a really nice skin, but my biggest issue with it is the flag, its just his weapon flipped up side down stuck in the ground? Any reason it didnt get a unique model? (especially for a skin of this price/tier) and I'm sure you guys can come up with really cool designs for a hextech flag 2nd problem would be his crown, it could be some hologram headpiece instead? It looks really dull and boring atm and doesnt feel hextech at all. The shoulder pads could use an upgrade as well. Also the effect on his passive CD indicator is really subtle, if the opacity could be tuned up a bit more it would be great. The ult also seems a bit lackluster, it could be more grand and splendorous, as in this skin line is showing the wondrous marvels of hextechmaturgy in a future piltover but I dont feel that from the ult? It could use more of the light blue hologram but Im not sure if that would be enough
PBE ProNoob
I don't have too much insight on the design here, but it's something I chat with the team about. We did chat about something similar for the crown in development, and a hologram felt more Program/PROJECT and not as on point for this thematic. I can definitely see about updating the passive CD indicator, though. I've got a note to see if we can add some VFX to the ult, too. :)
