TL;DW: Skarner, Skins & Quick Play Dev Update

A short rundown of updates from Riot Brightmoon, Meddler, and Pupulasers.

Hey everyone, Riot Brightmoon, Meddler, and Pupulasers here with another TL;DW of today’s Dev Update.

  • Rell’s midscope is still underway and you can read more about it in the dev blog.
  • Neeko’s midscope is getting close, but we ran into tech challenges with her passive.
  • Ivern will be receiving a midscope after Rell and Neeko with a focus on improving Daisy.


  • We released a dev blog diving into Skarner’s VGU, covering art, design, and narrative.
  • We’re exploring new skin thematics with two unique ones coming at MSI and mid-year.
  • Udyr, Shyvana, and Dr. Mundo are receiving new skins soon.
  • We’re aiming to bring the first batch of Wild Rift skins to League in July—this could change!


  • Star Guardian Senna and Orianna are both coming to League in the first batch, along with the previously announced Star Guardian Seraphine.
  • Redeemed Star Guardian Xayah and Rakan will follow later this year.


  • We’re aiming to bring back Blue Essence Emporium mid-year with tech improvements.
  • We’re testing out Quick Play as a replacement for Blind Pick in select regions (for now).
  • Quick Play lets you choose role and champion combinations when you queue. You’ll skip Champ Select and get straight into the game.
  • Starting April 4th, League will no longer be supported by 32-bit operating systems, which will affect less than 0.01% of players globally. If this does impact you, you’ll get a message in the client starting patch 13.6!
  • Moving League over to 64-bit OS lets us improve features such as our security and anti-cheat and bot detection.

That’s all we have for this Dev Update. Let us know what you think and we’ll see you on the Rift!
