PvP.net v1.60
  • Normal Draft Mode
    • Normal draft has changed so that premade groups are not prioritized over solo players
      • Solo players have a 20% chance of being the team captain with banning powers and first pick, regardless of the premade status of the rest of the team
      • If a solo player is not team captain, the player will be given a random slot in the pick order
      • If players group up before a game, their host absorbs all of their chances, i.e. the host of a 4-man premade has an 80% chance to be captain
  • Ranked Solo/Duo Queue
    • The Free to Play rotation has been removed from Ranked Solo/Duo Queue
    • Unlocked Champions that appear on the Free to Play rotation will still be playable
  • You may now rename your buddy groups by double-clicking the name of the group
  • Fixed a bug where some buddies would appear to be level 0 with no information
  • Fixed a bug where the sound at the end of Champion select would play too loudly
  • Fixed a bug where swap offers in Champion select would persist into your next game

League of Legends v1.0.0.140
Darius, the Hand of Noxus
  • Hemorrhage (Passive) - Darius aims his attacks strategically, causing his target to bleed. This effect stacks up to five times.
  • Decimate - Darius swings his axe in a wide circle. Enemies struck by the blade take more damage than those struck by the shaft.
  • Crippling Strike - Darius's next attack severs a crucial artery. As the target bleeds out, their movement and attack speeds are slowed. Crippling Strike's cooldown is lower the more bloodied the target.
  • Apprehend - Darius hones his axe, granting him passive armor penetration. When activated, Darius sweeps up his enemies with his axe's hook and pulls them to him.
  • Noxian Guillotine (Ultimate) - Darius leaps to an enemy Champion and strikes a lethal blow, dealing true damage. This damage increases for each stack of Hemorrhage on the target. If Noxian Guillotine is a killing blow, its cooldown is refreshed.

Sweetness fiddles can actually farm a wave with half decency.
Kind of a small patch? I guess all the balancing is nearly perfect until Darius screws it all up here tomorrow :-p
Lol and malphite charges even faster, no more flashing out of that stuff...

Swain skin. My face is probably smiling right now, but my mind is preoccupied with imagining scenarios with the aforementioned skin.
