In case you missed, last week the Summer Split of the LCS started up again.  I've attached the very well done recap videos that Riot put together of the Super Week of action.

Yesterday was the first day of week 2.  I've also attached the recap to yesterday's play.  Action continues today at 6pm pacific.

As the W1D2 recap suggests - CLG vs DIG was one HELL of a game.  You can see it in the reactions of the other players waiting for their turn to go up witnessing it.  It's a nuts game and if you see one game from Week 1, make it that one.

This has been a nuts split so far.  The Veteran teams are struggling and the new blood is kicking ass.  Cloud 9, formerly Team Quantic, who couldn't make it past Vulcun and GGU to get into the Spring Split, left Week 1 undefeated with four wins. Cloud 9, Team Coast (formerly GGU) and Vulcun all appear to be the stars of the show so far while, Dignitas, CLG, and Curse are all showing downward slides, and even TSM has its work cut out for it.  The wild card appears to be team Velocity, who shows a lot of potential but are clearly, at this time, a young team still growing into.  They could be this split's GGU, off to a weak start and then slamming it home in the end.  One thing is for sure, this kind of pitched competition is exactly what the North American scene needed to start becoming better competition for the international contest.  Korea DESTROYED everyone at the All-Stars, and if NA wants to catch up they have work to do.  Fresh mechanics and fresh faces will help them get there.

On another note, LOTS of Kha'zix and Zac in W1.  We'll see if that continues with W2 when they advance another patch.

New ultimate skin is coming, this time Udyr gets the special treament. I don't play Udyr enough anymore to justify purchasing it and additionally I kinda refuse to spend that much money on a skin (unless I somehow acquired that much RP and had it lying around for awhile with nothing to spend on, but that rarely happens). Super cool looking and if folks get it that's awesome, just not for me.

God. How awesome would it be if the awesome, dynamically-fitting music they play for the legendary skin ability trailers was actually put ingame for those using the skin? Seriously - it'd be SOOO much cooler than the never-been-updated Summoner's Rift music.

Yesterday was Week 5 of the NA LCS, and things opened up with Team Solo Mid vs Team Vulcun.  Vulcun is currently 2nd place to Cloud 9, while TSM is tied in fourth and needs to pull themselves up to catch up with long time rival CLG who has taken third. So champion select starts and... uh... what?

The pics and bans start 1 hour and 15 minutes in. If you ever wanted to see video evidence why we run the standard comp, top, AP mid, Jungle, ADC + Support bot, here it is.

I haven't watched the rest of the games yet but if there are any more interesting ones I'll share.

So, page 3.10 is coming.  Along with it is a remade Master Yi, the normal rotation of buffs and nerfs.  The biggest changes IMO are:

  1. Runic Bulwark is being removed from the game.
  2. Aegis of the Legion is getting nerfed
  3. Locket of the Iron Solari now builds FROM Aegis of the Legion.

Here it is from the patch notes:

Items

Magic Resistance Items

Summary: A new magic resistance item has been added to the game in the form of a mid-level MR item that builds into Spirit Visage and Banshee's Veil.

Context: We wanted to reposition Magic Resistance as a personal stat as opposed to an aura-focused stat (see below for our Runic Bulwark updates). With these changes we specifically wanted to create more itemization options against sustained magic damage dealers in the mid game as well as create more options for tanks versus late game poke teams.

New Item: Spectre's Cowl

  • Recipe: Ruby Crystal + Negatron Cloak + 205 Gold = 1400 total Gold
  • +200 Health
  • +45 Magic Resist
  • UNIQUE Passive: Grants +15 Health Regen per 5 seconds for up to 10 seconds after taking damage from an enemy champion

Spirit Visage

  • Recipe Changed: Spectre's Cowl + Kindlegem + 375 Gold = 2625 total Gold, up from 2200
  • Health increased to 400 from 200
  • Magic Resist increased to 55 from 45
  • Now additionally grants +20 Health Regen per 5 seconds

Banshee's Veil

  • Recipe Changed: Spectre's Cowl + Ruby Crystal + 875 Gold = 2750 total Gold, up from 2520
  • Health increased to 450 from 400
  • Magic Resist increased to 55 from 45
  • Mana reduced to 0 from 300
  • Additional UNIQUE Passive: Grants +45 Health Regen per 5 seconds for up to 10 seconds after taking damage from an enemy champion or when the spell shield breaks

Guardian Angel

  • Recipe Changed: Negatron Cloak + Chain Vest + 1310 Gold = 2750 total Gold, up from 2600
  • Magic Resist increased to 40 from 30

Runic Bulwark and Locket of the Iron Solari

Summary: Runic Bulwark has been removed from the game. Aegis of the Legion now builds into Locket of the Iron Solari.

Context: We wanted to reduce the burden of buying an Aegis/Bulwark every game. By combining Aegis and Locket, we can more clearly push them into their strategic niche of team fight area-effect damage reduction items.

Aegis of the Legion

  • Combine cost reduced to 375 Gold from 625 (total cost reduced to 1900 Gold from 2150)
  • Health reduced to 200 from 250
  • No longer grants self-only Magic Resist
  • UNIQUE Aura – Legion
    • No longer grants Armor
    • Magic Resist increased to 20 from 15
    • No longer grants additional bonuses to minions

Runic Bulwark

  • Removed from the game

Locket of the Iron Solari

  • New build path: Aegis of the Legion + 600 Gold = 2500 Gold
  • +300 Health
  • +20 Armor
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • UNIQUE Active retained
  • Now grants UNIQUE Aura - Legion

There's also some changes coming to jungle. Several jungle monsters are having their xp and spawn times adjusted.  The net result is it looks like they want to encourage you, if you are looking for xp, to farm your whole jungle, not just the guys who offer a lot of xp or respawn quickly, though I could be reading into it wrong.

If you want more on the Master Yi changes, you can check out the new spotlight (attached).  Also attached is SaintVicious from Curse's breakdown of all the patch notes.

EDIT UPDATE: Offical Patch Preview added.

Ouch, that messes with my Leona build a TON.

 

EDIT: I do like the itemization changes for AP on Treeline. Makes my Diana and other AP builds more workable there again!

About fucking time Riot.  How was this not already implemented? 

Ready Check

Summary: In order to get players into games faster, those that habitually fail to accept matched games will be temporarily removed from the queue. This should help players with longer queue times in addition to removing some fringe abuse cases.

  • Players that frequently fail a Ready Check will be given time-outs from re-entering the queue to prevent them from lengthening the queue times of other players
  • Normal play patterns (including missing a Ready Check every once in a while) will not trigger this penalty

 

Maybe now I can get into a game without going through three or four rounds of, "Everyone ready?........... NOPE."
