Are you guys going to work on this until it's fixed or are you gonna call it a night and work on it tomorrow? Just curious if I should check this for updates or just go do something.

We have what we believe to be a fix. We're doing some sanity checks to make sure nothing else is impacted. The fix *should* be going out sometime tonight.

not sure if this issue was brought up but i feel like the patch has caused fps drop in not just 3v3 but 5v5 and dominion also, i get lag spikes not necessarily associated with abilities but they do occur more during teamfights. Some moments i have been disconnected during custom game champion select and had to wait 15 seconds to be reconnected, other moments my game fails to load completely during the loading screen.

does this also fix the darkflame shyvanas first ult causing the game to freeze up similar to two karthus ults?

if the hotfix works it should clear up any of the massive fps drops.

This is rly bad and affecting game play. When a Karthus ult goes of with an mf ult, you literally can not move.

So far, with the recent update, nothing has been fixed with the "bug" problems. I get a little better fps overall after the last download (i assume the requirements were lowered more for the "lowest" settings), but the following mechanics turn my fps to 10, and 1 if two of them are used at the same time in close proximity to each other:

Soraka's starfall
LeBlanc's Teleport move (forget the name)
Vlad's pool
Karth's ulti
Vayne's tumble/ult/ult-tumble
Cait's ult
Akali's shadow circle thingy (although this one isn't as bad)
Skarner's ult
Wu's ult
Let's just say anyone's ult that takes more than 1 second to execute/channel. That makes the list shorter.
Um... there were others, but I'm sure Riot already knows about most of them. If you want me to go back and look at all the others I noticed, I can. Just let me know.
