Removed the hitbox behind Akali so her Q only goes forward; Q minion and monster damage decreased.
This is a pro-facing specific change we're making since many pro players use this uniquely shaped hitbox to waveclear optimally, while most other players have a hard time accessing and utilizing it properly.
Q - Five Point StrikeremovedHITBOX Removed the hitbox behind her RANK 5 MINION AND MONSTER DAMAGE 33% bonus magic damage ⇒ 25% bonus magic damage
Q cooldown decreased early.
Sad mummy is due for a buff given his state post-Preseason.
Q - Bandage TossCOOLDOWN 12/11/10/9/8 seconds ⇒ 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds
Base health per level and health regen increased. W cooldown decreased, cost flattened, resistance ratios to ally and self flattened. R base damage increased later, knockup now lasts longer.
Braum is a warden—a tanky champion that excels at protecting their allies. Most wardens are great at dealing with melee enemies that try to dive their backline, but bad at dealing with ranged opponents because of their limited range and mobility. However, Braum is an exception to this generalization due to his E, which makes him uniquely good at dealing with ranged threats as well.
We don't want to remove the very thing that makes Braum unique, so we're leaning harder into it while lowering his ability to deal with melee champions relative to other wardens. This should then allow us to also buff him in other ways without having him stay as a default, safe pick in pro play.

VFX and SFX updated. Lunar Rush and Moonfall now switched keys. Passive now grants attack speed.
Some of you may already know that we've been working on changing up Diana's kit for awhile now. As promised, we've made some changes aimed at helping Diana’s pre-level-6 lane, and making both the playing as and against Diana experiences less of a feast or famine. By giving her access to Lunar Rush as a basic ability, we're unlocking one of Diana's core mechanics earlier and in the laning phase, allowing her to fight against and interact with enemies before she hits level 6. The change also allows her to effectively gank early as a jungler too, which is a massive increase to her effectiveness in that role.
Additionally, Diana's new ultimate now significantly opens her up to more options as the game progresses, giving her both teamfight and skirmish capabilities that were previously inaccessible to her. This also adds a lot of variety to how she approaches fights, so her goal isn't always to nuke a single person with a full combo.
Overall, the goal of these changes was to preserve what people loved about Diana while giving her both the tools and the variety that champions should have. We want Diana players to be comfortable with what they already know, but with a kit that may be more fun and rewarding for new Diana players as well.
VFX UpdatesABILITY ICONS Brand new ability icons to bring it up to modern standards ABILITY VFX Touched up the VFX of all her abilities, including a brand new VFX for her ultimate and better visuals on her passive ABILITY SFX Touched up all the SFX of all her abilities, most notably the shield and her dashes, as well as brand new SFX for her ultimate and passive

Additional E spins and spin damage decreased.
Garen is one of the biggest winners from the Conqueror changes, climbing well above our acceptable limits. As a result, builds relying on attack speed are dominating his itemization choices. While we wanted attack speed builds to be viable, we don't want glass cannon Garen to be the only Garen people build, so we're targeting that specific approach to increase build diversity.
E - JudgmentNUMBER OF SPINS 7 (+1 spin per 20% attack speed) ⇒ 7 (+1 spin per 25% attack speed) SPIN DAMAGE 4/8/12/16/20 (+0-8.2 based on level) (+0.32-0.4 attack damage) ⇒ 4/8/12/16/20 (+0-6.6 based on level) (+0.32-0.4 attack damage)
E base shield increased.
We're buffing Karma in a way that those who build more supportive items on her will appreciate.
E - InspireBASE SHIELD 70/95/120/145/170 ⇒ 80/110/140/170/200

E - Frenzying TauntCOOLDOWN 12 seconds at all ranks ⇒ 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds
Q base damage decreased.
Ryze's early damage and waveclear are too high for a scaling mage. We're also nerfing his best-performing rune (Conqueror), so some might call this the Riot special, but he deserved this change based on his Phase Rush performance as well.
Q - OverloadBASE DAMAGE 80/105/130/155/180 ⇒ 65/90/115/140/165
Recommended items updated. Passive Mist Wraiths drop less often on minions Senna kills and no longer drop from champion clones. Q damage and W root duration decreased. R damage ratio increased.
Senna is too powerful as both a support and ADC, but Senna in the latter role is especially strong. We're nerfing her this patch in ways that will affect both roles, but should affect her ADC role more. Specifically, we're targeting her safety, her poke and waveclear, and the amount of souls she gets in a game. All these changes should amount to non-overwhelming Senna, regardless of what role she's in.ITEMS Recommended items have been updated

A small buff for Sivir!
Base StatsATTACK DAMAGE 61 ⇒ 63
Passive restores mana once again. Q cost increased, damage decreased. Yuumi no longer teleports with her Anchor. E now grants attack speed, no longer stocks charges, and costs much more mana.
We're encouraging Yuumi to be the enchanter she was meant to be by buffing her supportive capabilities at the cost of damage (and that means Summon: Aery is a lot more optimal on her, not Arcane Comet). However, to access all her power, she'll have to sit on squishier champions instead of being an untargetable damage source on top of an already unkillable champion, like Garen. We're also asking her to sometimes expose herself to real danger by allowing attentive opponents to have actual kill threat on an unattached Yuumi.
And seriously, we have the data. Yuumi is a really weird case where taking the wrong rune is negatively and drastically causing people to think she is worse than she actually is. Please take Aery instead of Comet!

Buff duration decreased. Heal for ranged champions decreased.
Conqueror is overperforming on a number of ranged champions, and is slightly too strong in general. We're making it last a shorter period of time, which hits ranged champions more since they're able to take full advantage of the long duration in lane, as well as directly nerfing the healing for ranged champions.DURATION 8 seconds ⇒ 6 seconds HEAL Ranged champions now heal for 15% ⇒ 8% of damage dealt
We've adjusted Omnistone to be a little bit smarter at giving you the right Keystone at the right time. Below are some guidelines you can count on when taking Prototype: Omnistone.WARDED Now tells you how much damage it has dealt and how many buffs it has granted. Buffs include: Lethal Tempo's attack speed, Fleet Footwork's Haste, Press the Attack's Vulnerable, Conqueror's Enrage, Hail of Blades' attack speed, Predator's Haste, Phase Rush's Haste, Summon Aery's shield, Aftershock's resistances, or Glacial Augment's slow PREDATOR More likely to get Predator when not near enemy champions, and less likely to get it when in combat with nearby enemy champions DARK HARVEST More likely to get Dark Harvest when near low health enemy champions HAIL OF BLADES More likely to get Hail of Blades when near low health enemy champions and building attack speed or attack damage CONQUEROR More likely to get Conqueror when both you and enemies have high health (increased chance if you're a melee champion) FLEET FOOTWORK More likely to get Fleet Footwork if you are low health and below level 9 GLACIAL AUGMENT More likely to get Glacial Augment if you have a Glacial item off cooldown SUMMON AERY More likely to get Summon Aery when you have healing/shielding power and are near a low health ally who is in combat
These were all documented as mid-patch updates for 9.23, but we wanted to include them in case you missed them!

An early Rift Herald's charge damage currently feels underwhelming (usually less than 2 Turret Plates' worth of damage) and not all that worth fighting over. We're increasing Rift Herald's early damage so she's considered more of a high value get in the early game, but without boosting the second Herald's damage.BASE DAMAGE 1500 ⇒ 2000 DAMAGE PER LEVEL 175 ⇒ 125

Hold onto your biscuits! We're bringing back the regal and time-honored Poro King from his vacation on the shores of the fabled Ursine Lands and returning him to the Howling Abyss, where he'll help you earn glorious victory! Have fun with the giant furball until January 14, 2020 at 07:59 PM GMT.PORO SNAX New Nightbringer and Dawnbringer Poro Snax are now available and will power up the King in different ways RANDOM PICK Poro King now uses the same random champion select process as ARAM PROGRESS TRACKER Featuring a new UI to track your progress toward summoning the King BIRDS OF A FEATHER All ARAM-specific champion, item, and rune changes also apply to Poro King
A quick TL;DR on one of our most dashing game modes: Summon the almighty Poro King with the help of your teammates by flinging poros, snowball-style, until you've hit ten targets. Once you do, the King will help push enemy towers, periodically heal you, and allow you to return to his side at any time. We’ve also got some QoL changes and updates from the last time the Poro King arose from his slumber.
As mentioned above, every change that's applied to ARAM—be it a champion, item, or rune change—will also apply to Poro King!

We're starting the transition from League of Legends accounts to Riot Accounts that'll cover League and future Riot games (more on the support page here). All usernames (NOT Summoner Names) have to be unique, regardless of server. This rule applies to new accounts, too. We know that these sorts of changes are never fun, but they are necessary to help update and improve Riot’s account system to support new games.WHAT HAPPENS IF... If your account doesn't have a unique username when we fully move to Riot Accounts in February, you won't be able to log into the client at all and will need to go through the website if you want to log in. I COPIED MYSELF If your username is listed multiple times in the list of accounts we emailed you, change the usernames of all your accounts except the one you want to keep your username on. Then try logging into that account. If you don't see the pop-up, congrats—the name's yours! If you still see the pop-up, a player in a different region shares your username and you'll need to pick a new one before the pop-up becomes permanent in January. WHO COPIED ME If your username is only listed once on the list of accounts we emailed you, that means a player in a different region shares your username. You'll need to pick a new one before the pop-up becomes permanent in January.
If your account shares a username with an account in another region (including PBE), you should've already received a heads-up email (there are still some being sent out, so keep an eye out). Starting soon, you'll also see a dismissable pop-up when you log in, letting you know you'll need to pick a new username. Early next year, that pop-up will no longer be dismissable. When that happens, you'll have to change your username before you can play League.
Here are a few tips:
- Only True Damage Ekko and his allies can see his moonwalk animation
- Elder Dragon Soul empowered champions can no longer execute champions with passives that make them untargetable with abilities (ex. Zac's Passive - Cell Division, Anivia's Passive - Rebirth)
- Teemo's E - Toxic Shot now properly procs Dark Harvest
- Pets' attacks now properly apply The Aspect of the Dragon from Elder Dragon (ex. Zyra's plants, Shaco's boxes, Heimerdinger's turrets)
- Champions with Presence of Mind now properly get the amount of mana and energy as stated in its tooltip
- Killing Drakes with Shaco's R - Hallucinate will not affect how Souls are granted, impact the type of drakes that spawn, or block Elder Dragons from spawning
- When ordering champions in Champion Select by Favorites, favorited champions will now properly be at the top
- Darius now does not heal from Q - Decimate when hitting spell-shielded enemies with his axe's handle
