With League of Legends’ arcade-themed event in the next patch round, the summoner icon and a unique limited time in-game emote entered the Public Beta Environment for testing Wednesday, as did a further tweak to Caitlyn’s traps.
During the event certain items, such as the Battle Boss Baron icon, will be available for purchase with tickets. At the moment, tickets can be purchased with Riot Points bundled with loot boxes. The new Battle Boss Baron icon comes with an event-exclusive emote for 80 tickets and for a limited amount of time.
Caitlyn receives more nerfs to her traps
Caitlyn received more changes to her W, Yordle Snap Trap. After some changes in the PBE, including a revert to how long the traps will hold a single target, the new nerf reduced the bonus head shot damage that’s applied on a trapped target. Instead of 70 percent of the attack damage as a bonus, it will now give 60 percent.
The previous nerf to the amount of time on the traps appears it will go through for now, as it is 1.5 seconds at all ranks instead of two. Caitlyn has been quite popular as of late, and this looks like it aims to take her down a peg.
