What is an ASU and what does it mean?

ASU stands for Art and Sustainability Update.. These updates are only visual to help champions get up-to-speed. The last time an ASU update was given to a champion was in 2015. Guess who? Alistar is the only one.

What are the Changes Caitlyn has Received?

Her entire outfit was changed, and she now looks better. The revealing cleavage is gone. She now has pants which are much more appropriate for her role of Sheriff of Piltover.

What champion would you like to see receive a visual overhaul like this? Personaly, I hope Zilean gets an updated. His hands are clunky and he just looks off… he is one of the older champions and with him being played at the 2021 World Championship he’ll become much more popular again – probably.
