The following skin was added to the store, but wasn't made available until October 2:

PvP.net

  • Fixed a number of patcher issues.
  • Fixed an issue with multitouch scrolling in the Mac patcher.
  • Players no longer lose access to the patch's Repair tool after closing the menu via the X button.
Master Tier
  • Players who get demoted from Master Tier will now retain a minimum of 50 LP in Diamond 1.
Ranked Decay
  • Ranked decay no longer applies in Silver and Gold (already doesn't apply in Bronze).
  • Fixed a bug where Bronze players could decay due to inactivity while up for promotion.
Duo Queue Restrictions
  • Fixed a bug where the restriction for team mates to be no greater than one tier apart wasn't happening.
Ranked Restrictions
  • The "Ranked Restriction" experiment, which currently rolls out Chat Restrictions to toxic players, has been deemed a success (primarily with regards to how accurately it catches players). As such, Riot is now expanding its functionality: Ranked Restrictions will now prevent the player from queueing for Ranked games until they have completed a number of Normal Draft games, as well as restricting their chat across all game modes while the restrictions hold. Additionally, players who frequently receive Ranked Restrictions will be deemed ineligible for Ranked Rewards - i.e. toxic players will not receive Victorious Morgana, Ranked Borders, Victorious Ward, etc., regardless of their ranked position. After being trialled on the PBE, it will be trialled on NA/EUW before being pushed globally.
Suggested Players
  • Improvements to the player selection.
