Our Razer contests have officially concluded and suddenly we're into the dog days of summer. Sounds like a good time to cool down. Let's go for a swim with our favorite League of Legends sea beasts. From Deep Sea Thresh and Kog'Maw to Scuba Gragas, because why not?

 

 

For this week, all you have to do is play three of your last ten matches as a champion that swims in the sea. Check the list this week because many skins of the Pool Party variety do not cause their champion to count.

 

 

To enter this week's challenge:

 

  • Simply enter the contest once you have completed three games with any of the valid champions before the contest ends on Thursday, August 20.
  • Check the rules.
  • That's it.


2 Prizes

 

  • One winner will receive a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma.
  • One winner will receive a $20 RP code.

Playoffs for both European and North American LCS kicks off tomorrow morning for those of us in the West. In a preview video for NA, LolClass breaks down each team and highlights particularly important players. Statistics are shown for pick and win rate, giving you an idea as to what your favorite players might or maybe should be looking for.

 

 

 

Team SoloMid

  • TSM always steps up when needed.
  • That said, they did have one of their worst regular season finishes ever.
  • Steps have been made to improve their performance before playoffs and we'll see just how well those have paid off shortly.
 

Team Impulse

  • Surprisingly, Team Impulse has done well in XiaoWeiXiao's absense. Some credit this to one less communication barrier as XWX was the only Chinese player on the team.
  • Impact and Rush continue to synergize extraordinarily well which has allowed them to keep momentum building with Gate substituting in the mid lane.
 

Gravity

  • Gravity dropped off pretty hard towards the end of the split but still looked remarkably strong throughout.
  • Thanks to Keane's large (and strange) champion pool, the team can frequently flex picks and take opponents by surprise.
  • Combine this with the supportive Jungling of Move, and Gravity is already set up for success.
  • With so many different forces that could get rolling at any moment, it's tough to shut down every lane at once.
 

Counter Logic Gaming

  • CLG finally had their end season split a few weeks earlier than usual. This means the crew has rebounded and now looks resolute going into playoffs.
  • Doublelift led the league in kills, gold per minute, and kill participation.
  • Pobelter was a very strong pickup, one that allowed the team to move into a triple threat composition, removing some of the weight off of Doublelift's back.
 

Team Dignitas

  • DIG took off at the start of the season and even managed to claim first for themselves.
  • However, they stumbled towards the middle of the season and have only won three of their last nine games, concerning for a group looking to make a solid run into playoffs.
 

Team Liquid

  • Finally first, Team Liquid gets a first round bye through playoffs.
  • Much like CLG, the threats of Quas, FeniX, and Piglet have proven to be too much for many teams in NA.
  • With the help of Coach Peter, their picks have remained strong and given them a shot at winning most matches this split.

 

As a general reminder, playoffs start tomorrow at 8:00 AM PDT with H2K Gaming facing off against Giants Gaming. North America follows with Team Impulse and Team Dignitas kicking things off.

Patch 5.15 is now live with the Fiora Champion Update, some quality of life improvements for our favorite demon in disguise Teemo, and some item changes you'll want to check out.  We've got the latest breakdown from our friends at LolClass where they talk to not three but four pros including Bjergsen, Balls, Quas, and Sneaky about the most significant parts of the patch!

 

 

Important Changes

Zeke's Harbinger

  • Zeke's generated less charges all around and the buff you get at 100 stacks now lasts two seconds longer.
  • Sneaky calls it a neutral buff as it's now up less frequently but it now lasts longer.

 

Champion Changes

Below are the champion changes summarized from the video. In particular, Fiora and Teemo got some massive changes while Riot tries to reel in Ekko, Sivir, and Nidalee.

  • Fiora received a champion update.
  • Her passive Deulist's Dance gives her a new mechanic where she identifies Vital spots on enemy champions.
  • When struck, these deal a percentage of the target's maximum health, therefore she plays much better against tanks.
  • Riposte (W) is new and gives her a chance to parry incoming damage.
  • Her ultimate, Grand Challenge (R), now requires you to actually maneuver around. It's no longer fire and forget.
  • Balls says this will make her laning phase stronger and make it so that she can actually outplay her opponents.
 
  • Ekko's changes were meant to nerf his tanky build as it wasn't enough risk for the reward.
  • His AP scaling on Z-Drive Resonance (Passive) is increased, but the slow was decreased.
  • Parallel Convergeance (W) shild base was reduced but scales almost double of what it used to off of AP.
  • The healing from his ultimate shares a similar philosophy of less flat value scaling but now does more off of AP.
  • Bjergsen says this should actually buff tank Ekko if you get enough AP.
 
  • Those infamous spears now take longer to cast and do less damage. This should make her a bit weaker overall.
  • Her Bushwacks (W) give 1/3 of the vision they previously did on cast.
 
  • Sivir is finally getting some attention with On The Hunt (R) now scaling up over time, rather than just being a flat 60%.
  • Sneaky doesn't know if this will actually take her down a peg as the value might not even matter.
 
  • Teemo's stealth now activates faster and that's now doubled while in bushes.
  • On top of this, he can now move around in bushes without breaking stealth.
  • Quas believes top lane Teemo will be much harder to gank now because of this.
  • Noxious Trap (R) can now bounce shrooms off of other shrooms for increased placement distance.
  • Bjergsen says this will be used for waveclear or setting up shrooms from over walls.

If you want new skins, Riot updated the PBE this morning with a bunch of them! There are seven skins total: Arcade Riven, Battle Boss Blitzcrank, Academy Ahri, Academy Darius, Academy Ekko, and Academy Vladimir. The academy skins will be 750 RP while Arcade Riven and Battle Boss Blitzcrank will be 1320 RP--though, if you ask us, it's pretty likely they'll make a showing at PAX and other events Riot attends as free codes.

Want to climb the ranked ladder through the Jungle? With the recent Devourer update, there's a new slew of champions that will allow you to do exactly that. It's not nearly as overpowered as everyone thought it was going to be, but it is strong, especially on a few key champions.

 

You do need to be a bit careful however as some of these do need some time to farm a few camps and ramp up before they're even really dangerous. But once the Devourer is finally sated and you get your second item, you become a huge threat to the entire enemy composition.

 

 

Aatrox

Our favorite sword weilding fiend is a big fan of Devourer even though
it no longer scales infinitely. 

 

 

 

(Chart removed: Erroneously displayed regular Devourer and Sated Devourer. Will take time to regather data)  

 

 

Shyvana

The dragon lady was already doing okay before this last patch and the
recent change only made her stronger. Her clear times were already
fantastic and they've gotten even quicker.

 

Cloud9's Hai has been playing her in the LCS recently. For an idea at
how things will ideally go. Check out the replay below.

 

 

 

Others prefer to go the route of Skirmisher's Sabre and Challenging Smite. Let's take a look at that chart.  

(Chart removed: Erroneously displayed regular Devourer and Sated Devourer. Will take time to regather data)  

 

 

 

Kayle

Kayle is just oh so strong, even in the Jungle, as Fuya points out.

 

 

Master Yi

It's hard to mention good attack speed Junglers without mentioning
the one and only Master Yi.

  • Since Yi is all about dueling, the Challenging Smite is his best
    friend, allowing him to utilize that attack speed and damage on
    hit to its full potential.

 

Who have you been playing? What champion do you think is fantastic with the changed Devourer? Let the community know in the comments below!
