Yes!

BEST PART OF THIS PATCH
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I'm looking forward to this patch, regardless if it's without Zyra.
I'd rather have three champion reworks and a huge balance patch without a champion that's still got bugs than no patch at all.

+69.
Giggity.

Aphoristic 07-18-2012 09:16 PM

Welcome back, Evelynn.

Tigercule 07-18-2012 09:16 PM

Why the vlad nerf?

Also, about time on Mythic Cass. <3


Edit: For the record, Vlad gets a 37.5% speed boost for a very short time upon using his pool that isn't in the tool tip. It lasts literally a single second, not more. Why should it also decay when it's so short already?
(And for the record, I suspect it's not in the tool tip because of how large the tool tip would end up being if you put every single note on it.)

Dark Skull Kid 07-18-2012 09:16 PM

ty riot. I'll put my teers away..




but didnt you say vlad didnt have a movespeed boost on his pool? Its not even on the tool tip it shouldnt be there in the first place.

inc downvotes

W00T! We finally get the notes. Guess EU server was the test?

Shame Zyra won't be out, but she is worth the wait. I mean, we have Eve, Twitch, and Xin to keep us occupied. Speaking of which, Twitch and Xin are awesome! Eve feels really different and without her CC is meh, but we'll see how she pans out.

If anyone is interested in adding some things to the Quality of Life Suggestion Thread check it out here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2026965 Quite a few things from the list have been added in the last couple of patches. The more suggestions the better! =)
