Helps skillshots but still doesn't change the fact that the f'ing HUD will be in the way and how you NEED to have unlocked camera(especially on bot lane) to be able to play effectively when you don't technically need unlock camera for blue side

So all this time you all been working on this map and even before this map, you still can't change this...? really..?

well, there goes all the hype for me. geegee.

Question: does this update clean up SR in a way that you guys can bring back the map skins (e.g. Harrowing)?

Quick Question from all the overly anxious fans:

When's it hitting the PBE?

P.S. IT LOOKS HELLA AMAZING, GREAT JOB GUYS.

How about at least swapping red and blue buff on purple side?

Great news. Thank you.

Hope this is the first little tidbit we'll see of how female Yordles will end up looking like once you get around to giving one of them a VU.
