New Champion – Zoe

Following her champion reveal. our new champion ZOE, THE ASPECT OF TWILIGHT is now on the PBE for testing! PBE Testers can report bugs in [this thread]. 

Riot Nekomaru with a Zoe bug thread:

“How do you do, fellow Aspects of Twilight? 

With today’s PBE deploy, we’ve enabled Zoe on the PBE for testing and feedback! We’ve spent a lot of time trying to burn down our bug count, and are continuing to do so, but there are still a few things to take care of. If you happen to come across something odd during your time playing as, with, or against Zoe, please let us know through the Report a Bug tool with a description of what happened and whatever other information you can provide. 

I’ll be keeping tabs on these threads throughout the 7.23 PBE cycle. Thanks for all your help! 

— Nekomaru”

Context & Notes

1) Here’s KateyKhaos with context on the Eternum Cassiopeia icon that made it’s way to the PBE in the 11/6 Update:

“The icon was created based on feedback that basically every skin this year had an icon released along side it – even some of the one offs. It felt shitty that a champion who waited 4+ years to get a new skin also got shafted on an icon, too. 

After developing this icon, we’ve been discussing why we make icons. This may mean that every skin won’t have an icon, but we want to make sure we’re making icons for the right reasons.” 

2) The LoL Twitch hosted a Zoe Dev livestream! Check out the VOD here while we wait to see if she will be enabled on the PBE!

3) Riot Maple Nectar noted some bugfixes that will be patched on to OCE, and will be included in the other live patches as they go out

“2 runes specific bugs we’re shipping out to OCE that will also be in patch tmrw: 

Sej base armor from 36>>31 

Shaco base armor from 24.9>>30″
