  • Updated Jett’s voice lines, and added interaction lines with Gekko and Neon.


Esports Hub is live!

  • The Esports Hub will be live in game on August 2. Matches kick off on August 6 and run through to Grand Finals on August 26.


  • Added party voice mutes for people who have received team voice mutes.
  • Riot announced its plans to initiate a global rollout of their highly anticipated Real Time Text Evaluation and intervention system. This innovative system, which had been previously tested exclusively in the North American regions, had proven successful in muting disruptive players in both voice and text chat during in-game sessions. Building upon the positive outcomes of the test run, the company was now confident in extending the system's coverage to encompass various global languages. The implementation was scheduled to begin with a mid-patch update, followed by a carefully planned staggered release.
  • Riot reiterated its primary goal of swiftly detecting and minimizing disruptive situations while players were actively engaged in the game. By employing real-time text evaluation, the system aimed to provide a safer gaming environment, enabling players to fully immerse themselves in the gameplay experience without undue disturbances. Riot expressed their dedication to creating an inclusive and enjoyable gaming community for players worldwide, and they looked forward to the positive impact the system would have on the gaming experience.
