Patch 8.9!
Welcome to patch 8.9. This patch, we're looking at mages, mana, and spellcasts. Over time, waveclear champions have slowly edged out all other champions in mid lane, to the detriment of overall playstyle diversity. Basically, it's become too easy to spam your spells on waves, and the items which give you the mana to do so are also just the best choices. We're updating the core mana items mages buy, the base mana/mana regen of mages, and more.
On top of that, we're looking at game pacing over the next few patches. We want to make sure that there are fewer games that feel like they're lost but just won't end for awhile. The first step is looking at objectives. First, we're making Baron more accessible when you're ahead, but also more contestable in closer games. We're also upping the strength of Rift Herald when teams are able to safely shepherd it, but also increasing the ability of opposing teams to kill it when they see an opening.
Finally, we're reworking Unsealed Spellbook. The old model mostly meant "you get to flash more," and we're trying to create a keystone that really sells the fantasy of getting to play around with the whole spellbook, not just two summoner spells.
So get out there and clear some waves (not many), bash Rift Herald into some towers, and swap some summoner spells. #leagueoflegends

With 2018 well and kicked-off—and Irelia’s blades flying around the live servers—I thought it’d be a great time to talk more about what the Champions Team is planning this year. But before we get to the specifics, let’s take a step back and look more broadly at our plans for the future.

ON NEW AND OLD CHAMPIONS
Last year, we decided to combine the Champion Update Team and the New Champions Team into one big squad. One of the major reasons we combined forces was so that we’d have more flexibility in our release schedule and be able to better adapt to the needs of players and League over time. As the game has evolved, more and more champions have become outdated and in need of large-scale reworks. At the same time, with 140 champions in the game, the pressure on new champions to give players new and exciting ways to play League has grown massively. Be it with Kayn’s permanent transformation, Zoe’s ability to steal summoners spells, or Xayah and Rakan’s unique synergy, our most successful champions have been the ones that let players experience things they have never done before in League.
The bar is high for new champs, and moving forward, every new champion will offer unique ways to play. As such, we will be slightly ramping down the amount of new champions we release in order to make sure every release is breaking the boundaries of the game. That said, we know it’s important to keep League modern and fresh, so we’ll be ramping up our VGU releases, which will also allow us to catch up on the amount of champions currently feeling neglected or outdated. We are pretty excited about this shift, but please let me know what you think in the comments below.
NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON THE SEA
Let’s reset a bit and wade right into the next champion we’re adding to the list. We felt it was time to execute on a new support with a darker, deeper thematic than most of our support cast. We also wanted to create an aggressive playmaker, someone who doesn’t just save a drowning ally, but who forces their enemies to drown themselves… by their own hands.
Keep your health high, your eyes to the sea, and pray you aren’t on the list. ... more in comments.
