The following gives a breakdown on the formatting that should be followed on ALL the Patch Note pages for uniformity purposes.

Applies to all sections formatting:

  • When bulleted style is used: one space to always follow * symbol before the text flow.
    • ie: Not: *{{ai|ability|hero}} But: * {{ai|ability|hero}}.
  • Each change note to be finished with a period at the end of the line, unless otherwise needed.
  • Each bullet entry after the * symbol to start with capital letter, unless otherwise needed.
    • ie: Not: * symbol... But: * Symbol...
  • All decimal fractions to be preceded by zero (0) if they are less than 1. (0.5, NOT .5)
  • All changes involving percentages, the % symbol to be used after numbers not as a separate word.
    • ie: Slow reduced to 5% from 12% NOT: Slow % reduced to 5 from 12.
  • Any changes that go between different values per level and single value at all levels to use the phrase "at all ranks" after the single value.
    • ie: Cooldown modified to 5/6/7/8/9 sec from 5 at all ranks. NOT: Cooldown modified to 5/6/7/8/9 sec from 5.

  • Each Champion changes to be listed in bulleted style.
    • Ability changes to be documented using {{ii|Ability|Hero}} template when applicable.

      • Words New/Removed to precede the ai template. No extra punctuation to be used. Words to be capitalized at first letter only.

        • This does not apply when champion as a whole underwent a major remake process and a note of this has already been made following the ci template.
    • If and only if ability had more than 1 change to it the changes are to be nested in bullet style under the ability.
    • The changes to be listed in format "<parameter> <increased/reduced> to X from Y."
    • The ability template is to be followed by a colon (:), unless the ability as a noun completes the full sentence of the change note and serves as the subject of that sentence.

    • No punctuation between these words and ii template.

    • New/Removed/Reworked to be capitalized at first letter only.

  • The changes to be listed in format "<parameter> <increased/reduced> to X from Y."
  • The spell/mastery template is to be followed by a colon (:), unless the item as a noun completes the full sentence of the change note and serves as the subject of that sentence.
