Summoner icons, emotes, visual effects updates and balance changes arrived on the Public Beta Environment on Tuesday in the first update of the League of Legends Patch 9.9 cycle.


The seven new summoner icons and four emotes celebrate the 2019 Trials, while the effects updates give Ashe, Blitzcrank, Caitlyn, Jax and Renekton a facelift to keep them in line with current art and sound standards.


The balance changes in the PBE update target Blitzcrank, Kennen, Ornn and Rakan, while exploratory tests with a Teemo kit rework continue. Check out the full list of changes below.
