Changelog – 2.0.3 (“Cho’Gath”)

  • A NEW CHAMPION APPROACHES! Fizz’s data has been added.
  • Removed the summoner spells Fortify and Rally – if you had any builds that used these spells, they’ll no longer be part of the build. Sorry 😦 Talk to Riot, not me.
  • Added the new summoner spell Surge. SURGE!!!! Like that weird energy drink/soda that Coke used to make. Remember that?
  • Updated the masteries to the new season 2 trees. Unfortunately, any builds that relied on the old masteries will no longer have an associated mastery page. There’s just no way to migrate them since the masteries are so different now. Sorry. Hate mail welcome!
  • Updated The Imp with data from the Fizz patch.
  • Added new skins: Amethyst Ashe, Musketeer Twisted Fate, and Temple Jax.
  • Added a screenshot and pricing data for Asylum Shaco.
  • Added Shaco’s champion spotlight.

Changelog – 1.9.0 (“Caitlyn”)

Warning: This patch is huge. I had some free time this time around 🙂

  • FILTERS ARE HERE! You can now search for champions, items, and runes that meet specific criteria. This feature should have been there like YEARS ago, but it’s a long whiny story. Anyway, it’s here now. Enjoy!
  • I don’t know how many of you will use this, but you can now use the emails sent from the build screen to customize your IN-GAME recommended items! Just email the build to yourself and follow the new instructions at the bottom to try it. This feature is brought to you by mostly me but a little bit Brackhar of Riot Games, who was kind enough to post the API hook on the forums. He says patching won’t overwrite your items, so that’s cool.
  • The list of sales in the Game News section now displays the price of the items on sale rather than inane information that you don’t care about. Everyone knows Rammus is The Armordillo.
  • Fixed a bunch of UI bugs, like the rotation champions being highlighted WHEREVER you see them. They should only be highlighted in the champion browser now.
  • Added some more performance optimizations. I swear, if I could figure out how to do these kinds of things the first time around, I’d throw myself a parade.
  • Modified the way navigation works on the Item Detail page – hitting the back button now takes you back to the last item you viewed rather than away from the screen altogether. I actually had to work to get that NOT to behave the way it will now at some point, so I’m not sure why I did that. Go me!
  • Updated the layout of the Item Details page to separate information more clearly. Also, select items now have screenshots (like Aegis of the Legion) so you can see the visual effect each item provides. Obviously, items like Long Sword will never have screenshots, because they would look like Rammus just standing there.
  • Updated the mastery perks to include new Dominion data. Spatial Accuracy now also decreases your Promote cooldown by 30 seconds, and Reinforce now affects Garrison as well as Fortify.
  • Cleaned up the quality of some of the item icons.
  • Reordered the items in the “more” section of the champion landing page. I figure more people care about the store than any of the other items, right?
  • The summoner spell browser no longer presents the summoner spells as an indexed list that allows you to jump to spells that start with a specific letter. There are so fewer of them, I feel like it’s more appropriate to just list them all out – wouldn’t you say?
  • The build browser now will only present the list of builds in an indexed fashion if you’ve created more than 30 of them.
  • The little detail text shown beneath builds in the build browser will now just say “[name of champion] build”. It’s not like you can remember much about the build from just the first couple of items like it is now, am I right?
  • Added the rest of the audio for the champion quotations. While time tick-ticks… away. God, I love Orianna.
  • Corrected a bug that made Odyn’s Veil look like it wasn’t built from any other items (yeah, I wish) and was available on all maps. (Hint: It’s not.)
  • Added a screenshot and price data for the new Pentakill Karthus skin. That’s the lead singer, so only the drummer is left – who’ll it be? Olaf? Trundle?

Changelog – 1.6.1

  • A NEW CHAMPION APPROACHES! Leona’s semi-complete data has been added, along with her two skins.
  • Added new skins – Baron von Veigar, Buccaneer Tristana, Harbinger Kassadin, and Ravager Nocturne.
  • Temporarily removed the background on the landing page due to memory issues. It’ll be back soon, I swear.
  • Added a screenshot for Heimerdinger’s “Alien Invader” skin.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor UI annoyances – nothing exciting.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Nocturne’s “Frozen Terror” skin to be unviewable.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause massive, sky-high errors when attempting to a view a champion’s “in the store” page if you didn’t have access to a wireless network or 3G. I think so, anyway – let me know if it still happens to you.

Changelog – 1.5.0 (“Annie”)

  • Push notifications are in the house! If you want, you can receive a push notification compliments of The Imp when a new champion rotation is posted or a sale is announced. THE FIRST TIME YOU START THE APP ONLY, you’ll be prompted to indicate whether or not you want the notifications. If you change your mind later, visit “settings” from the landing page. Disclaimer: this is my first-ever attempt at push notifications, so apologies if it doesn’t go super-smoothly. We’ll get it figured out 🙂
  • The “game news” section will now allow itself to be updated more regularly now that I know it’s not going to cost me a bajillion dollars 🙂
  • Squashed a bug that caused The Imp to incorrectly detect button clicks when you probably didn’t mean to click them. Kudos to MadUkranian for his help on that.
  • The “more” section of the landing page has been rejiggered yet again. That’s pretty much an every-patch thing now, isn’t it? The “delete stuff” menu is now in the “settings” item.
  • Added the new Bloodmoon skins for Shen and Akali.
  • Added a better screenshot for Maokai’s “Totemic” skin.
  • Changed the order of the items in the “more” menu on the landing page to be less silly.
  • Fixed a bug that made the Twitter feed erratic at best. I’m actually using the right API now, so that’s… something. Yay me?
  • Fixed a bug that caused the UI to freeze up when new game news data was being downloaded.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Maokai’s IP cost from showing up correctly.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the icon and screenshot for Zilean’s “Chronoshift” ability from appearing.
  • The changelog will now only show notes from the last five patches. Y’all don’t care about that ancient history, do you?
  • The default subject line of the error report email has been revised to include the version number.

1.4.0 (“Anivia”) Changelog

  • The Imp is now a tiny little bit cloud-aware. The “Game News” section has been added to the “more” portion of the homepage, and you can go there to see LIVE updates about the current champion rotation and any sales that are going on. Champions will also be highlighted in the champion picker if they’re in the rotation. I know it’s not much, but trust me, this is the start of some good stuff for The Imp.
  • The displayed prices of skins and champions will be adjusted if they’re on sale (and they’ll, you know, say “on sale”).
  • Added the new Tenacity items: Cloak and Dagger, Eleisa’s Miracle, and Moonflair Spellblade.
  • The “support stuff” and “news” menu items that were available in the “more” section of the landing page have been rolled into a new “about the app” section.
  • The link to the official League site has been removed from the home page. You guys are totally capable of typing into a browser without The Imp’s help, right?
  • Reorganized the build details page to group stats by offense and defense (rather than physical and magical). I think it makes more sense this way, don’t you?
  • Added Tenacity, Gold Per 10, and Spell Vamp to the build detail screen and build email thingy.
  • Corrected the mana cost of Vayne’s “Final Hour” ability.
  • Added a new screenshot for the incomparable Ninja Rammus (’cause he’s my dog). High Noon Twisted Fate too, but he ain’t my bro like Rammus is, so he gets the stock Riot screenshot. What? I’m not made of RP.
  • Fixed a bug that caused champions to be alphabetized incorrectly in some cases.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented some Soraka’s and Twisted Fate’s skins from appearing correctly.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause The Imp to spaz out if you tried to read the Twitter feed with no internetz.
  • Updated the FAQs to be a little more current.
  • Cleaned up some ugly font crap on a couple of the pages.

1.2.0 Changelog

  • The mastery calculator is in the house. You can now create mastery templates and save them with your builds for hopefully handy reference. Tap on a mastery perk to add a point to it, and tap and hold to see its name and details. Sorry. I know it’s not supremely perfect, but I think it’s vaguely usable-ish as it is – I’ll keep nibbling at it.
  • On the rune page editor, it’s now possible to fill all empty slots of a certain rune type with a specific rune. To do so, just tap and hold on the rune you want to use to fill the empty slots. You can also remove a single rune from this menu.
  • Overhauled the entire stat engine of the application to allow for more accurate stat calculation and easier expandability. Things may not be exactly perfect yet, but hopefully they’re closer to the ballpark.
  • A BUNCH OF NEW SCREENSHOTS APPROACH! At least some screenshots for every champion have been added. We’ll continue to add and refine, but we’re finally there, kind of.
  • It’s now possible to clear all runes on a current rune page from the toolbar menu.
  • Added two missing screenshots for Warwick’s passive abilities.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to put any rune in any slot, regardless of type.
  • On the build editor page, the rune page selector (along with the new mastery template selector) now open in full page mode to make items easier to choose.
  • The picker dialogs on the home screen have once again remembered how to hold your place when you choose a champion, item, rune and so on. When you hit the back button and return to the home screen, you should find the picker in about the same place you left it.
  • The Imp no longer FREAKS THE HECK OUT when it can’t load your recent data – it just assumes you don’t have any and gets on with its life. Added this to address a few problems had by international users, because apparently I’m not smart enough to ask the question: “OMG, what if they’re not in America?” My bad. What a jerk, right?
