LoL early August patch preview with notes

Check out the new patch and its notes. The new patch will bring the champion, Diana, the Scorn of the Moon, at a later date since she’s still being tweaked and tested on the public beta servers. But as always she’ll be worth 975 RP or 6300 IP and will have a bundle available for 1462 RP that will include her and a skin for a limited time.
