LoL Father’s Day Patch Notes

Hope everyone is having a good Father’s Day if you’re celebrating it. Today Riot Games had a small patch which tweaked several bugs and added improvements into the PvP.net system. My favorite, besides fixing bugs, is the balanced reward system. Considering most of my games run about 50-70 minutes long, the larger rewards based on the time length is very much appreciated. Take a look below at the patch notes.

PvP.net v1.61

  • Players can now earn unlimited rewards per day in Co-op vs. AI. After 180 minutes, rewards continue to be earned at 75% the normal rate.
  • Custom games now have a separate pool of 120 daily reward minutes that is no longer shared with Co-op vs. AI.
    • Only applies to Summoners level 15+. Lower level Summoners earn unlimited rewards per day.
  • Updated the IP reward forumula for Co-op vs. AI:
    • Games of medium to long length will yield larger rewards
    • Games of short length will yield smaller rewards
      • On Summoner’s Rift, “short” is generally less than 24 minutes
      • On The Crystal Scar, “short” is generally less than 12 minutes
    • Players should see an increase in IP reward per game so long as they aren’t quickly steamrolling the bots
  • The Tournament Draft Custom Game mode will now allow Summoners to pause the game
  • Dodging a Ranked Game will no longer result in loss of Elo but the time before you can join any queue again has greatly increased
  • Adjusted the way Elo is handled for newly formed ranked teams; many new teams will see their Elo increase as a result.
  • Normal Draft Mode (Please note that these additions were incorrectly stated in the Darius patch notes)
    • Normal draft has changed so that premade groups are not prioritized over solo players
      • Solo players have a 20% chance of being the team captain with banning powers and first pick, regardless of the premade status of the rest of the team
      • If a solo player is not team captain, the player will be given a random slot in the pick order
      • If players group up before a game, their host absorbs all of their chances, i.e. the host of a 4-man premade has an 80% chance to be captain
  • A feedback sound now plays when spending mastery points
