League Client

Fixed a bug where some players’ screens would freeze when viewing runes during Champ Select or in Collections

Fixed a bug to significantly reduce the time spent “Waiting for Stats” after the end of a game

The menu that appears upon right-clicking a friend’s name in the Social Panel will correctly persist until you select an action or click out of it

Sounds from the Social Panel (such as messages and clicks) will play consistently again

 

QOL Changes

Fiora’s base voice lines have been remastered to sound clearer and more consistent

Several Predator keystone tooltips have been corrected to reflect its changes in patch 11.18

Nasus’s Q – Siphoning Strike now triggers item effects that occur upon dealing ability damage (such as Luden’s Tempest or Tear of the Goddess)

Fixed a bug where Irelia’s Q – Bladesurge would sometimes (though very rarely) deal double damage

Fixed a bug where, if Akshan’s E – Heroic Swing was cast and did not hook onto terrain while his Q – Avengerang was out, he would be able to cast another Q – Avengerang immediately

Braum’s E – Unbreakable will correctly block the damage dealt by Jayce’s Q – Shock Blast if it’s the first instance of damage dealt by a champion on his shield

Fixed a bug where Malzahar’s Passive – Void Shift did not correctly reduce damage on attacks or abilities that trigger Night Harvester’s Soulrend passive

Fixed a bug where, when emerging from Fog of War, Aurelion Sol’s Q – Starsurge visual effects would go out of sync and appear further away than it actually was

Fixed a bug where, if Taliyah casted Q – Threaded Volley on Worked Ground without moving, she was unable to cast her Q again until her passive cooldown reset

Eclipse no longer grants omnivamp against targetable champion-created objects such as Gangplank’s barrels and Teemo’s mushrooms

Doran’s Blade and Ravenous Hunter no longer grant physical vamp against wards

Ornn’s upgraded version of Riftmaker, Icathia’s Curse, now correctly grants 8 AP per Legendary item

Fixed a bug where the bonus damage on Prowler’s Claw’s Sandswipe active would not trigger if used at too close of a range

Fixed a bug where getting hit by Bard’s R – Tempered Fate right before activating Prowler’s Claw’s Sandswipe active would make abilities uncastable once the stasis expires

Fixed a bug where Night Harvester’s Soulrend passive would not trigger against enemy champions who were in stasis when the item was purchased

Fixed a bug where, if a champion purchased Frozen Heart while dead, its Winter’s Caress passive would activate on champions who were recently hit by the purchaser

Fixed a bug where Irelia’s blades would not change color when she had 4 stacks of Passive – Ionian Fervor

The champion changes in 11.19 are most definitely the highlight. With the current double support enchanter bot lane meta, it was extremely important that Riot did something to both Sona and Soraka before things got out of hand.

Players should be really excited about the changes as Riot looks to make the game the most balanced that it’s been in a long time. The variety that’ll be on display at Worlds 2021 will be absolutely shocking so make sure to tune in once the action starts on Oct 5. It would be amazing for us to see Vex’s competitive debut happen on the biggest stage possible.
