Changelog – 2.1.0 (“Corki”)

  • AT LAST – NEW DEVELOPMENT! The Imp’s “in the store” section just got a bit more awesome. Now, when tapping on a skin, instead of seeing one of my terrible screenshots, you’ll be taken to a new screen where you can actually view, rotate, and zoom the model, straight from the game files! Pro tip: you can do the same thing with the champion’s base skin by tapping on his/her/its price. Is that fun or what?
  • A NEW CHAMPION APPROACHES! Ziggs’ complete data has been added. Special thanks to Smallfry310 for screenshots.
  • Push notifications about sales will now deep link you into the sales page. ‘Cause that just makes sense.
  • FINALLY fixed the stupid bug that broke the Twitter feed in the “About” section.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the screen to stay black if you resumed the app on the Build Detail screen.
  • Added new items: Locket of the Iron Solari and Zeke’s Herald. Removed Stark’s Fervor.
  • Updated the stats of Emblem of Valor.
  • Updated Morgana so that her passive spell vamp is taken into account when viewing build stats.
  • Updated The Imp with data from the Ziggs patch.
  • Added Ahri’s missing champion spotlight. Oops.
  • Added Jax’s champion spotlight.
  • Updated Sivir’s spotlight to the new one.
  • Added a missing skin: Frost Queen Janna. The poor chick only has 3; we can’t afford to miss any of ’em.
  • Added some of Shyvana’s missing stats. Thanks, helpful user whose name I won’t disclose for privacy reasons!
  • Finally got around to adding the new summoner spell icons. My bad.
  • Added some missing runes. Oops again.
  • Added several missing item codes for the build email feature.

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 – 1.8.0 (“Brand”)

  • Huge giant nerds rejoice! You can now read each champion’s voiceover lines by tapping “quotations” on their landing page. As a special added bonus, you can also HEAR the lines from most champions. I’m looking into ways of getting data for the missing ones (the most recent I have is Rumble), so this feature is still being born. Hopefully someone will enjoy it. You’ll need access to the internet the first time you listen to a champion’s quotations, and after that the data will be stored on your phone. Enjoy!
  • Lorehounds rejoice! All judgments that are currently available have been added to The Imp. I know not everybody’s into that, but it was comparatively painless to add and will hopefully make someone happy, so… there you go. I’m a people-pleaser. What can I say?
  • A NEW CHAMPION APPROACHES! Talon’s basic data has been added.
  • Added new items for DOMINION! Their stats, costs, and recipes are subject to change, but this is what we’ve got for now. Additional, each item’s detail page will now state which maps it’s available on. You can also tap on the maps to see a basic summary of them. I’m not thrilled with it, but maybe it’ll be nice to know for someone.
  • Modified the Veteran’s Scars mastery perk to grant only 12 health per point (down from 15). When did that change?
  • Added data for new skins – Demolisher Nunu, Dragonslayer Vayne, Pax Sivir, Reverse Annie, and Victorious Jarvan IV.
  • The Item Detail page has been redesigned to be more consistent with the rest of the app. I really don’t know what I was thinking the first time around. Oh well. Live and learn, right?
  • Fixed some usability issues with the Twitter feed – links now link, mentions now mention, and hashtags now hash. Now that’s UX. Yeah baby.
  • Replaced the placeholder item icon on the build screen with the one from the game. ‘Cuz that’s how pro (read: plagiaristic) I be.
  • Fixed an issue with Obsidian Malphite’e screenshot.
  • Fixed an issue that made the FAQs unreadable. Muhbad.

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 leagueoflegends.com 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.

Changelog 1.3.0 (“Amumu”)

  • The all-new “in the store” section is available on each champion’s landing page. You can use it to check out each champion’s IP/RP cost and what skins are available for him/her/it, complete with screenshots!
  • If a champion has a spotlight video available, a link to it will be available on their landing page.
  • Champion wallpapers of approximately appropriate WP7 size are now available on each champion landing page. All images are the intellectual property of Riot Games. But they look mighty fancy on your phone.
  • By popular demand (and by popular demand, I mean I demanded it myself), The Imp is now sporting a new icon. Still not great, but at least this one wasn’t drawn in Paint.
  • A NEW CHAMPION APPROACHES! Or whatever. Rumble’s data and screenshots have been added.
  • The accommodate the new “in the store”, “spotlight video”, and “wallpaper” links and to increase rhyming in The Imp, these new items, along with the “lore” link, have been condensed into a “more” section on the champion landing page.
  • On the Item Details page, both the item’s total cost and its combine cost will be displayed.
  • Resolved an issue that caused some champions’ titles to be capitalized incorrectly.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause some items to fail to correctly show which items they build into.
  • Fixed an issue that made the FAQ page stupidly hard to use.
  • Updated champion and item stats with some of the data from the 1.0.0.116 patch.
  • Added several screenshots for missing abilities (mostly passives).
  • Several UI tweaks for increased performance and usability.

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?
