Patch 5.16 for League of Legends will make some big changes to heroes Garen, Darius, Skarner and Mordekaiser - for one, Riot is now calling them 'Juggernauts', and each one has been given a few new boosts to make them more viable to play.

Riot killed of League of Legends mainstay Gangplank last week, as part of the ongoing Bilgewater event, which progresses the background story of the MOBA's key nautical characters.

The grumpy pirate captain was seemingly killed by fellow buccaneer Miss Fortune, but wait! - in fact, and to nobody's real surprise, he's not actually dead. His fate was revealed in the Bilgewater epilogue, though he didn't escape entirely unscathed. Here's a snippet.

Instant teleportation maybe the dream for mankind but it's causing a right fuss for League of Legends right now. Riot Games has temporary taken ranked matches offline to address the hyper-efficient Recall spell.

Normally this would take time to charge up, leaving heroes vulnerable, but they've been zipping back home before you could blink. It affects all champions so they had to pull ranked matches.

Whether rightly or wrongly, Riot's MOBA League of Legends has become intimately associated with the troubling issue of player toxicity since it launched back in 2009. According to the studio, though, the issue perhaps isn't quite as prevalent as people think. At least these days.

Riot puts its success down to a 'Tribunal' system for player harassment, which has, for the most part, allowed the community to police itself.
