Ahri and Braum have new skins up on PBE (Jinx and Zac are crying somewhere in the jungle). Meanwhile, Alistar received a visual update! More below.
Dauntless Ahri has been renamed to Challenger Ahri.
Move aside and witness Alistar, the Minotaur, in his new and updated form!
Known for his ability to change the shape of a teamfight, you can now spot this cow trampling in with his shape changing form! It’s behoove of me to tell you what you can expect to see, so read up if you find yourself locking horns with the bull at any point! His model and textures are all sparkly and brand new, and his animations are tweaked a bit to make him run and look better on the fields. In addition, we’ve also given his ult a spitshine, so you’ll see some nice shields here instead of… uh… spiky… things. His skins are receiving the same treatment as well, so be sure not to miss those as well*.
Some questions to keep in mind as you take a look at the new models!
>Does this still read as Alistar to you?
>Does the new Unbreakable Will still communicate the effect?
>Do you feel anything important to you was missed during this update?
We’d really appreciate it if you’d take a look at Alistar, and headbutt us with any bugs and feedback that come your way. Your feedback helps to guide changes we can make, as well as helps us grow as a team.
*Sweeper Alistar was fairly recent, so it did not receive larger updates.
The 2015 competitive season is about to begin, which means the climb to become world champions begins yet again! We’re kicking off the 2015 competitive season with Dauntless Ahri!
It’s a new season, which means all kinds of new beginnings – learning a new role or champion, playing with new teams, learning all of the changes.
It also means bettering yourself as a player – Improve your skills, excel in your main role, rank up higher than you ever have before.
