LOL patch 11.17 details are now available for PC players. According to the lol 11.17 patch notes, the latest update added a new champion VEX and various balancing, gameplay optimizations, bug fixes, and more. Apart from this, LOL update 11.17 will also include stability fixes.
Previously, a big update was released with various quality of life improvements and changes.
Unfortunately, since the last patch, players are still experiencing several issues with online gameplay. Today’s LOL update 11.17 will fix a few of these issues.
Vex’s original gameplay, designed by Nathan “Lutzburg” Lutz, created portals that extended the distance allied missiles traveled. You’d essentially have Miss Fortune ults that went double distance, Blitzcrank hooks from out of nowhere, and all these other really scary, but really cool experiences. Except there was one problem: It cost multiple years of VFX budget.
That’s not an exaggeration. Nearly every missile ability in League needed to be completely redone with updated VFX just to interact with Vex’s kit. And that just wasn’t feasible.
Vex’s artillery mage kit was centered around the extension mechanic, so when that was scrapped her entire kit needed to be reconsidered. Taking a step back to rethink her kit, the team realized they were overlooking the thing they loved most about Vex: her personality.
Vex is annoyed by everything around her, especially if it’s hyper and, *shudder* peppy. And you know what’s high-energy and annoying in League? Dashes. There are so. Many. Dashes. And Vex is having none of it.
The official lol patch 11.17 notes will be available later.
More details for lol update 11.17 is coming.
