Es ist wieder ein neuer Spielmodus auf dem Testserver (PBE = Public Beta Environment) erschienen: Doom Bots of Doom. Hierbei spielt ihr in der Kluft der Beschwörer gegen 5 extrem starke Computergegner (Bots). Ihr könnt zwischen drei Schwierigkeitsstufen wählen, die Gegner und Fähigkeiten werden dabei immer stärker. Die Computergegner haben nicht einfach ihre normalen Fähigkeiten, ihre Fähigkeiten wurden extrem verstärkt. Blizcrank zum Beispiel hat drei(!) Arme mit denen er euch ziehen kann. Einen Ausschnitt was euch erwartet, zeigt das folgende Video.


Insgesamt könnt ihr gegen 15 verschiedene Computergegner spielen: Amumu, Annie, Blitzcrank, Cho’Gath, Ezreal, Fiddlesticks, Galio, Karthus, Lux, Malzahar, Morgana, Wukong, Veigar, Ziggs und Zyra. Wenn ihr mehr vom neuen Spielmodus sehen möchtet, hat der Streamer woopsNA auf Twitch.tv ein zweistündiges Gameplayvideo online gestellt.

Es gibt noch weitere Neuigkeiten! Es sind zwei neue Skins aufgetaucht: Mecha Malphite und Mecha Aatrox. Erste Eindrücke bieten die beiden folgenden Videos.



Des Weiteren wird Sona überarbeitet. Die Entwicklung ist erst am Anfang und wird sicherlich nicht in dieser Form live gehen. Der Vollständigkeit halber möchten wir an dieser Stelle Riot zitieren. Im Video könnt ihr euch dann auch von der neuen Sona überzeugen. Schreibt uns doch in die Kommentare was ihr von den geplanten Änderungen haltet!

Zitat von Riot
Hey all!

Sona is getting an update to help her player satisfaction and drastically improve the clarity of what she does. This update is also going to be an experiment for development, where Sona is going to be getting to PBE much earlier in her development, meaning that we have a longer time to get your feedback and react to it. This means that feedback is going to be even more valuable for us than usual. Everything you all have is welcome, but there are a few points where we really want to hear from you:

Are the effects of Sona’s spells more clear?
Did you have difficulty using your auras to give allies your buffs?
Did this become easier late game/during team fighting?
Did you feel more able to support or save your allies?
Did you feel more able to survive all-ins during laning?
Did your spell casts feel more impactful?
Did you notice any bugs?
What items did you build?
What items felt very powerful?
What items felt less effective?
Were Sona’s spell effects more enjoyable?
Were Sona’s spell effects easier to understand?
Really looking forward to hearing from everyone!

Known Issues

Due to Sona being an an earlier stage of development, it is highly recommended to use her base skin. Other skins may not have all their audio and visual effects playing correctly.
Sona’s Q aura bonus trail particles do not apply to certain enhanced auto attacks (Draven’s axes, Caitlyn Headshots, etc.)
Sona’s updated Audio and Visual Effects are still works in progress. These will be getting more polish over the days and weeks to come.
Sona’s information in the client is not up to date with these changes
Sona bot is going to be really dumb until we can tell her about her new tricks
