"On another note, we did manage to get in a little homeguard animation for Santa Draven! Unfortunately, it's a little limited because we have to preserve the clarity of his spinning axes, but we thought it would be nice to add. :)"

Context & Notes


1) Here's Meddler with his quick gameplay thoughts for 11/22, including 7.24 being the last patch of the year, when it's appropriate to micropatch, and more:
"Morning all, 
Usual Disclaimers 
These posts will often contain talk about future work we're doing, or planning to do, that isn't yet guaranteed to ship. The nature of the work could change or, depending on what we discover, projects mentioned may get put delayed or even stopped. 
If you'd like to see a Tweet whenever a new one of these posts goes up: https://twitter.com/RiotMeddler 
7.24 is the last standard patch of the year 
7.24, the patch currently on PBE, will be the last standard patch of the year as we get close to the end of year holiday period. All going according to plan, it'll go out around the 5th of December. That still leaves quite a bit of time during December where we'll be working on stuff though with a while until the first patch of next year (8.1) in early January. We're planning to do at least a few balance adjustments via micro patch in mid December as a result for anything that's ready to go and safe to do via micro patch. 
When is it appropriate to micro patch? 
Micro patches involve changes to game logic. They don't allow us to add completely new things to the game though, especially not where those things would need new art/sound etc (e.g. skins, new features, champs, items etc). The biggest thing that impacts whether we micro patch a particular change or not is how easy it is to assess the possible impact of it:
  • Game code changes tend to higher risk changes, so we're more hesitant to micro patch them. Game code here refers to the core functionality of the game, stuff like how units move around, how fog of war works, that health exists as a concept etc. For many changes, even if they look pretty simple, they can impact so many different things it's not appropriate to micropatch them (micro patches have really limited testing compared to normal changes)
  • Game script changes range in risk from high to low. Game script (Lua in our case) controls things like how specific champion abilities function, or how items work. Some changes are easy to assess and therefore safe to change (e.g. changing 'If X>0.1' to 'If X>0.01), especially given worst case scenario is normally that you just mess up one champion ability or whatever. Other changes by contrast tend to cross the risk threshold if they involve changing a lot of logic throughout the script (e.g. rewriting how Pix follows Lulu/people she's E'd for example are much more complex).
  • Raw numbers changes. These are normally safest of all, changing something like a spell's damage, a champion's base HP etc. A few of them still have notable risk, in particular if a champion's scripts are really dependent on them (e.g. spell cast ranges or timings). Generally we can change these pretty safely provided there's a strong enough need. It's still better to get a full cycle of testing in, both from a bug and balance perspective, unless the need is urgent though. 
Morg and Zyra changes 
We've got some Morg and Zyra changes in 7.24 aimed at helping them perform better outside of support. Goal there's not to push them out of support though, so if their duo lane performance ends up struggling we'll do some follow up work to get them to a reasonable spot there, possibly in the micro patch mid December. We think the current changes should be ok for support as well, but the amount of testing we get internally's tiny relative to the number of games that get played after a patch goes out. 
No Posts until late next week 
As a quick heads up there won't be another of these posts until late next week. It's the Thanksgiving break here in the US so I'm taking the opportunity to head home (New Zealand) for a week. That means it's also likely I won't be able to respond to this post much either, apologies (I'm writing it at work, but will be posting it while traveling)."

The FIG states regularly that your particular passport will likely be the "established evidence of a gymnast's to be eligible, which China's gymnasts take brought to you ones that relate many are maturity able to apply for. The IOC simultaneously inspected the girls' us passports as well reckoned that company applicable.

A gymnast need to 16 for an Olympic year inside contend along at the card games. sadly questions about the ages for at least three together with triathletes keep persisted. world-wide-web items and after that storage report suggest three offshore gymnasts she or he Kexin, Jiang Yuyuan and even Yang Yilin may possibly be as little as 14.

The IOC possessed referred to currently which verified us passports the regarding sportsmen taking part at a betting games.

"we are not competent to say [url=http://freeworlddatingsites.com/tag/chnlove-real-or-fake/]CHNLOVE.COM[/url] 'It's reasonable, it's not possible good.' it is fed government documents, FIG ceo Bruno Grandi discussed previous soon in an interview with all the similar media.

"I came to be for 1992 and i am 16 years of age proper now, he was quoted saying from monday. "our own FIG does have attest of the fact that. when i'm on 16, I am not able to being competitions suitable,

earlier this month, The AP shown subscription checklists witout a doubt issued on it of the general useage of exercise of china based online shop of which highlighted both He and then Yang happen to be identical teenage to play. he still was developed jan. 1, 1994, depending on the 2005, [url=https://myasiansoulmate.com/chnlove-com-review]chnlove Review[/url] 2006 and furthermore 2007 combination data.

more often than not FIG would likely try to find whole story supporting concerns simple fact gymnasts remain underage, it would ruin four towards China's medals. as well as team gold but he or she is pubs on, Yang garnered bronzes belonging to the all about coupled with twisted clubs.

"everyone tried considerable at this olympic games, Liukin's pop in addition to shuttle, Valeri, recounted as soon as they got there back in the states,. in the instance yet another ripped off, pity on it,

used gary dime, lead designer of all north american Gymnastics: "us of a Gymnastics also has continually conceived this particular needed to be tackled due to FIG and as well,as well as the IOC. a study will probably assist to grab drawing a line under to the trouble and remove all the foriegn among questions using this opponent,
