League of Legends dropped their Patch 6.24 update and in addition to a plethora of champion changes, kicks off the upcoming 2017 season in glorious fashion.

The latest update for League of Legends contains so many fantastic updates to champions, it’s going to usher in the new season well. From nerfing tanking champions to properly buffing certain abilities, it’s going to be great to see how Summoners adapt to all the great changes.

Must Read: Final extra support champion rotation is live in League

Below is the full transcript directly from League featuring all changes, the reasoning behind them, and so much more. Please follow Blog Of Legends on Facebook and Twitter as all week long, we will be breaking down the changes with insight from our Contributor team, stay tuned and please bookmark us!

Season’s Greetings, Summoners,

Welcome to patch 6.24, the last one of 2016. Another patch, another round of pre-season follow-up. This one’s a bit bigger than 6.23 – an extra patch’s worth of data gives us a clearer picture of how shifts like the assassin updates and jungle camp changes are settling in for the long term. Plus, Camille’s hookshotting her way onto the Rift!

On the client update front, open beta’s progressing well. Performance and stability have been our top priorities since open beta launched, so if you’ve been waiting to switch over, now’s a great time to hop on in. As a side bonus, downloading the updated client now saves time over the coming months: starting now, patches will contain big chunks of the overall download to reduce the final patch size when it comes time to deprecate the legacy client. We’ve got another client ‘pre-patch’ some time between 6.24 and 7.1, so keep an eye out for that.

Finally, we’re about to ring in the 2017 season (yes, it’s earlier this time). This patch will bring the ladder reset marking the start of official ranked, so hopefully you’ve been training during pre-season. No pressure or anything.

From all of us at Riot Games: good luck, have fun, and we’ll see you on the Rift. Speaking of, the weather’s looking a bit gray.


Camille, the Steel Shadow, will be released later on during patch 6.24!
