Patch 3.01 Notes

League System

    • Champion losses and win ratios will no longer be displayed to other players
    • Elo ratings have been replaced by matchmaking ratings (MMR) which are no longer displayed
    • The time penalties for queue dodging have been shortened and an LP penalty has been added

These changes are a continuation of our earlier effort to carefully scale back some of Ezreal’s excess power. Although these nerfs affect AP Ezreal, right now we’re focused on stabilizing AD Ezreal. After that we’ll assess the state of AP Ezreal.

    • Duration reduced to 5 seconds from 6
  • Trueshot Barrage
    • Damage falloff per target hit increased to 10% from 8%

  • H-28G Evolution Turrets
    • Now displays timer of when Heimerdinger will get his next ammo charge
    • Turrets will now attempt to prioritize enemies hit by Heimerdinger’s basic attacks or his CH-1 Concussion Grenade

Hmm, the channel on Meditate should be 3 seconds now, making it a better spell for AD Yi. I'm assuming this is a tooltip bug, I'll fix it tomorrow when I get in.

Not sure why this didn't go through in the patch, looks like AD Yi wont get as big of a buff after all and AP is slightly worse.

Olaf nerfs were needed but it might have been a bit much. Much harder to hit with multiple undertows to gank, no free passive armpen, armor items being buffed, and health nerfed could end up being a bit much for him. Still far from the worst champion.

Shaco nerfs better be so they can give him something late game in the future instead of killing him off from league, otherwise I don't like this change much.

Warmog's nerf is good, should fix seeing everyone build it on every champion without making it a useless item.

Overall I think this patch still fixes a lot of problems with the items though.

I much appreciate adding the intent of changes directly into the patch notes! That should help curb whining a little bit... right? RIGHT?!

Geonde 01-31-2013 03:15 PM

Thanks for the Kat changes, maybe everybody will stop trying to be Voyboy now.

Moosenocalypse 01-31-2013 03:15 PM

I love the new footnotes. Stating details and motives, great step in the right direction.

League system seems like it will suck

Xelsia 01-31-2013 03:16 PM

Heimer Buffs and QoL ahoy!
Edit: Fun fact, it's been 1 year, 5 months, and 23 days since Riot directly did something positive for Heimerdinger (*Heimerdinger will now place Frost Turrets if he places a turret while UPGRADE!!! is active.).
That's the Skarner patch folks
