One of the notable changes in this update is a small adjustment to the Agent ranks, which now allows selection at the bottom of the screen, leaving room for future Agents Riot Games plans to introduce.
One of the most notable changes in this update is the improvement in smoke visualization. Now, Riot Games has added audio and visual cues to the end of these smokes to alert players to their imminent demise.
These audio and visual signals will begin playing 1.5 seconds before the smoke disappeared. The following Agent abilities are affected by this change:
Additionally, the sounds played when equipping skills will no longer be audible to your allies. This is to make equipment audio rules more consistent and help players better understand what enemies can hear.
Update on changes to the Premier Elimination Tournament Queue
The Premier has undergone changes to its knockout tournament queue. Now the queue only lasts 15 minutes instead of 1 hour. If a team does not enter and remain in the queue within this period, they will not be allowed to participate in the tournament. After the waiting period, all teams still in line will be paired into brackets based on Premier Score.
Riot Games has also updated the user interface for the Level Borders and Player Cards collection. Players can now search, browse, and equip their Level Edges and Player Cards more efficiently using a simplified grid interface.
This update addresses several issues, including agent fixes Deadlock e Neon. Additionally, map loading errors and inappropriate player behavior have been addressed to ensure a smoother gameplay experience. Corrections have also been made to the Slaughter Banner’s audio so players can hear it clearly.
