Game Systems

Attack Speed

The attack speed reduction formula has been changed. Riot said that this is being done so that champions like Malphite and items like Randuin’s Omen can have a more “significant impact.”

  • New formula: Base attack speed x (1 + Bonus Attack Speed) * (1 – Attack Speed Slows)

Minions

Minions can now be spotted through the Fog of War. Riot said that this change has been made so that players can “better plan for late-game sieges.”

Pings

  • Improved in-game visuals to make pings more noticeable.
  • The “on my way” ping can be dragged to specific targets.

Turrets

  • “Domino Bonus” damage reduction: 66 percent to 30 percent

This means that if two turrets in the same lane fall consecutively, the next structure will take 30 percent less damage for 30 seconds. This is indicated by a golden glow.

UI

  • Some of the game’s UI has been polished.
