  • Here's Cactopus on an issue with skin rerolls not rerolling 1350 skins, as well as a fix that has now gone live:

"UPDATE 11:00PM PACIFIC TIME - The change is now live! We've answered a bunch of questions in the comments here and on Reddit, so check that out if you're curious!
Hey folks, I just asked some of our loot guys about this, and while OP’s numbers are a little off (1350s, ultimates, etc. do drop sometimes) it actually does look like there is some unfair weighting on skin rerolls specifically. For now, the devs are going to push out an update to remove ALL weighting for the reroll results. That means all unowned skins (except mythics) will have equal odds of dropping from rerolls—just like how all skin shards (except mythics) currently have equal odds of dropping now from hextech chests.
This change should roll out within the next hour, and we’ll update you once it’s live. Also, in the longer term we’re looking into other possible solutions.
FWIW, the current weighting system made more sense back in the old system (when people only ever rerolled low-value skins) but we’re realizing now we should’ve just updated it to be unweighted when we made all the other loot changes. So, it’s our bad. Will fix ASAP and update once it’s done."
  • Riot Repertoir noted some changes he has been working on for Rengar and provided a WIP gif:

"Was finally able to find time to do this now that things have slowed down for the holidays. It's not quite finished, but at least the pieces are in place to resume after the new year. Happy holidays everyone!"



"Happy Snowdown Summoners! We’ve got a bevy of Snowdown, wintery fun on this episode of the Summoner Showcase.

If you’d like to see something of yours show up on the Showcase, post it in the comments!
