League of Legends popular esports series Mid-Season Invitation (MSI) was canceled due to on-going COVID-19, but that didn't stop Riot Games wanting to do something special for the event.

"Even though the Mid-Season Invitational could not be held this year, the Conqueror Nautilus skin will still celebrate the teams that qualified. We will be sharing 25% of the proceeds to the Spring Split Champions across all 12 regional leagues."

You can expect Conqueror Nautilus to arrive for Patch 10.14, along with a bundle that includes the champion, skins, icon, and border for 2340 RP, or 975 RP for the skin alone.

Riot Games accidentally leaked some potential upcoming changes for Karthus, and weren't shy about admitting it, either. Riot Phlox elaborated further on the changes:

"These are part of a bundle of mid iteration changes with a tooltip that accidentally went to PBE. Sorry! List includes stuff like tick rate on E from 1/s to 4/s. No guarantees anything sticks around but I'd love to hear what you all think!"

These potential changes to Karthus include:

Wall of Pain (W)

    • Slow increased from 4s to 5s
    • [New] Enemies within the wall are grounded.
    • [New] Enemy dashes which pass through the wall are stopped and these enemies are slowed by an additional 20%.

Firstly Riot Games, what the hell? Secondly, what the hell? Karthus is already incredibly strong at the moment, especially within Patch 10.13. These changes would see him beyond broken should they go through, but we'll keep you updated should things change in the coming weeks.

Nexus Blitz arrives for 10.14

New and, may we say, pretty images have emerged for Nexus Blitz, which could see a return for Patch 10.14. Nexus Blitz (Project SLIME) was originally an experimental mode by Riot Games, with games lasting around 15 minutes, which made for very heated League of Legends games! We're very excited to see Riot Games polishing up this game-mode and bringing it back to the public to play.
