March 8th, Balance Changes
  • With a longer patch than usual, we've got a larger mid-week update than usual. Our intentions here are to keep the meta as healthy as possible until patch 12.6 goes live March 30th, while also decreasing the speed of combat.
  • Even before patch 12.5 went live, the pace of combat has interfered with the clarity of each battle.This pace has been accelerated with high damage from champions, and after looking at the data, we’ve been able to confirm that the damage is just that—too damn high. So, we’re shipping more numeric changes than the typical mid-week update, which we think will slow down combat with the outcome of increasing clarity and thereby empowering informed decision making. TL;DR Combat you can understand is combat you can better control
