  • When Jett presses E, she uses her Tailwind charge and, after a.75 second delay, activates a 12-second window in which she can dash on the next key press.
  • You can reclaim Jett’s Tailwind charge after two kills.
  • To match the changes to Jett dash, the functionality for Dash during Knife rounds in Escalation will be tweaked.

5-Stack Queues

Riot has reduced the penalty for Rank Rating gain/loss for various 5-stack configurations.

  1. If everyone in your party is Iron–Diamond 2 :
  • there is no RR penalty if you stay within the normal grouping.
  • If any player falls outside of the normal grouping, all players face a 25% RR penalty.
  1. If you have anyone in your party who is a Diamond 3–Immortal 3. (but no one in your party is Radiant)
  • All players face a 25% RR penalty.
  • If anyone in your group is Radiant, all players face a 75% RR penalty.
  1. Matchmaking has been tweaked to reduce wait times for 5-stacks.

To sum up, the new Act seems exciting with the new agent and bundle. Fade seems a strong initiator, and it will be amazing to watch how she changes the game.
