Riot have just released the Syndra Champions spotlight, along with the mid September patch notes and a slew of information about the end of season 2, covering the World Championships, Season 2 Rating tiers and their corresponding rewards.
I’ll pick out the bits that I found good or interesting, if you want more indepth click the links above.
I’ll lead with the biggest and best news
Players may now create up to 20 mastery pages, up from 10.
HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN. Once you get more than about half a dozen champions being limited to 10 mastery pages is a real pain, (and yes I do know you can change them on the fly, but often in solo queue you just don’t have the time.)
The time window for multikills has been increased to 10 seconds from the previous kills as opposed to 8.
This is nice, makes Penta’s easier, but what the hey, you can always say you got yours before the nerf
War Hero Janna skin
If you’ve done well enough then a new Janna skin will be your reward. There are all sorts of ‘leaked’ images out there but until I see one from Riot, I won’t link any.
Season 2 rewards will be based on the highest rating you achieve between now and the end of the season. Once you’ve achieved a tier, you’ll have it for good, and playing more games can only help you out. In order to do this, we are resetting Top Rating for all players to their Current Rating and will be using Top Rating to determine end-of-season reward tiers.
So the worst you can be is where you are now, MAN-MODE Solo Queue enabled.
There are also some nice additions to Spectator Mode, an explanation of what ELO is in which rank and which rewards that will garner you.
Apart from that Syndra meh!
