PBE Update 12/9: texture rebalancing per i primi 12 champion!

La Riot Games ha annunciato che con la prossima patch 4.17 saranno introdotti diverse correzioni nella grafica dei champion e delle loro rispettive skin. Con il PBE Update, possiamo scoprire in anteprima i primi 12 champion che subiranno la texture rebalancing.

Ecco alcune informazioni dal topic ufficiale pubblicato dagli sviluppatori:


Could you explain a little more of the technical details of this?

While making these changes, we’re reassessing the finer details and making calls to emphasize certain areas of characters with the goal of increasing overall visual fidelity. Because we have a very zoomed out isometric camera angle, we want to communicate the important parts of a character without detracting from them as a whole. In other mediums (minigames, Udyr comic, cinematics like ‘A New Dawn,’ etc.) characters will also show a level of detail suitable for the angle in question.

This is something we’ve already been doing with new champions and skins to increase readability and clarity, while minimizing pixel flicker and excess noise. Our goal is never to take something away from our characters. We continue to develop and iterate on all our characters so they look like they fit inside of the same world, and in this case so they’ll have visual consistency on the Rift.

Are you updating skins as well?

Absolutely. We always consider skins when working on champions, although in this case most recent skins already reach the quality standard that we’re shooting for on this project. However, there will be a few instances where we’ll deliver some changes to a character that will only affect their default appearance. An example of this is a metal shader that we’re adding to Orianna’s base texture, which will not be applied to the skins at this time. This is being done opportunely where we see a chance to do justice to the character’s core identity.

Will this affect the releases of Champion Updates?

Nope! This isn’t a project done by ChampUp, so it won’t affect any of the upcoming projects in the slightest.
