    Big fixes for SF, Wisp, Bloodseeker, and i'm reading it right that Lifestealer infesting an ally units shouldn't heal you? Wow this is a pretty big nerf and i didn't know this was the case.

    Also yes for more reports thx you volvo.

    GIVE ME ABADDON ZZZ

    THIS.

    Oh well, yet another feature for anyone not coming from LoL (and many who are) to completely ignore.

    Here is a comparison of Puck's and Brewmaster's new faces

    Brewmaster became a little more detailed and slightly slimmer while the form of Puck's head had been changed a lot. I think it suits him well and fits his child-like disposition.

    I don't even mind no new hero. It's one of those patches that makes you think "There were this many interaction bugs?!"

    That's the bestest Void_Puck mash up I've ever seen. Hope this becomes a trend.

    They had staff transferred to some other project because its already released as far as their income reports are concerned. The whole "betalol" is there to contain any criticizm.

    Puck looks more alien, which makes sense since it's supposed to be...

    *sunglasses*

    ...out of this world.
