It’s patch 10.8, y’all! We’ve got some stuff to talk about. First off, a brand-new legendary champion: Xerath is here, ready to cap off your Dark Star and Sorcerer comps. This late-game carry drops meteors all over the battlefield, which get additional power from killing enemies. We’re also adding two new galaxies: Trade Sector and Superdense. Trade Sector will give you the opportunity to re-roll your shop once per round, for free. In a Superdense galaxy you’ll get a free Force of Nature at level 5.
In the land of balance adjustments, we’re sticking with our theme of buffing the weak over nerfing the strong. The big highlights include buffs to underperforming Tier 4 champions Wukong and Soraka and nerfs to the Super Mech and Shaco.

Let's get into it!
We're making it more difficult to purposely loss-streak/open-fort as it will now risk being eliminated before stage 4-7. We still think loss-streaking should still be a strategy and especially a fallback for unlucky early shop rolls or slow compositions, but they should be actively trying to lose by small margins rather than happily full-on open-forting.
