League of Legends patch 7.15 change list

Urgot’s rework, new skins and Zac nerfs!

Riot Games

Patch 7.15 finally updates Urgot into the disgusting juggernaut he’s meant to be! There’s also a lot of balance updates, so let’s dive right in.

Notably, Cho’Gath is getting nerfs after doing disgustingly well in patch 7.14. His Vorpal Spikes changes were launched just a bit too strong. In addition, Zac is also getting a long-awaited nerf, so you won’t have to see him getting banned in every single draft game you play.

The ranged slow was removed from Duskblade of Draktharr after a fairly broken release week, so AD carries probably won’t be rushing the item anymore.

Also, are those ... Nasus buffs I’m seeing on the horizon? Remind me to not pick a squishy champ for the next few patches.

As usual, you can check out our picked out and important bits from the patch notes here, as well as Riot’s official notes here.

---

In-Client Chat

This little easter egg has been in the client for a while, and now we're sharing the secret with everyone! /me is excited.

HAVE FUN :: Starting a message with “/me” adds your summoner name to the front of the message and makes it look like a notification rather than a chat message. Use it to talk about yourself in the third person in pre-game lobbies, Clubs chat, and direct conversations.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO USE THAT :: “/me” doesn’t work in champion select or in-game chat

HUD Pings

Players can now ping any item, not just active items!

Attack Move

For the player who has everything but 1-click access to attack moves

CUSTOMIZATION :: We’ve added a toggle that adds attack-move commands to left clicks. You can still left click on HUD elements (ex. the item shop), but will issue attack-move commands to the target location beneath the HUD.

OVERRIDE :: While this toggle is active, use SHIFT+Left Click to interact normally with the HUD without attack-moving in the process.

Rotating Game Mode
