General
  • Fixed a lot of the crashes issues introduced in V4.17 (which predominantly effects Max players).
Pando Media Booster
  • Pando Media Booster has not been in-use for a while and Riot plans to implement their own peer-to-peer technology in the future. Most players will uninstall Pando Media Boost at some point when troubleshooting problems, as it is one of the first steps Riot suggests - but the client will now detect if it is installed and recommend/grant players the option to uninstall it. For players who need Pando Media Booster for other games, there is a "Do Not Ask Again" button.
Suggested Players
  • The list of suggested players while building a game will now also include friends-of-friends who are available to play.

    • Fixed a bug where Azir's soldiers would fail to cross a wall.
    • Fixed a bug where damaging units at the very end of the charge would fail to attribute the damage to Azir (which affects things such as buff transfers, getting the kill credit, not applying spell effects, etc.).

    • The following things should no longer happen:
      • Deal damage multiple times.
      • Multi-bounce targets before they ever hit the ground.
      • Pin targets to terrain, and will now push them over the terrain.
