League of Legends patch notes – 13.12 rebalances problematic champions

0

League of Legends patch notes for the 13.12 update are here, as Riot takes aim at a few problematic champions in the MOBA game while addressing more ahead of the end of Split 1 in League of Legends. Strap in, this is a big one.

The likes of  Lulu, Yuumi, Kha’Zix, and Zeri are all seeing changes in the LoL 13.12 patch, as Riot also makes changes to the recent mid lane minion gold nerf.

“While this was successful, the risk of nerfing mid lane
mages over roamers has indeed become a reality and placed mages in a not-so-great position. This is certainly not the only issue with mid lane mages, but is one that we think we can mitigate now.”

Mid-lane minions are now worth the same amount of gold as minions from other lanes, after they were worth one less for the first 14 minutes of a match for quite some time.

There’s also been a bit of a red buff thanks to the recent buff sharing, so Riot wants to bring power down by reducing late-game damage output and “retaining its slow and regeneration properties.”
