League Patch 13.1 notes have just been revealed, so we know what to expect when Season 13 begins in the coming days. But we also learned more about what Riot plans to introduce to the game for Fighter champions in the next few weeks.
Sustain changes on Fighter champions
While fans are delighted about all of the improvements revealed for Patch 13.1, the devs have one more surprise in store for them in the coming weeks that is connected to a whole class of champions.
According to Riot Phlox, the devs are looking into some changes toward the sustainability of the Fighter class, one of the most broken classes in recent days.
Fighter champions are high-risk, high-reward champions that specialize in skirmishing and battling and have mid-game potential due to their durable builds and strong damage output.
Normally, this type of champions doesn’t have the durability like tanks, However, it has recently felt as though fighters are the new tanks, with an extra pile of damage in their kit making them hard to play against.
Champions like Irelia, Aatrox, and Fiora are just some examples, and with the inclusion of the new tank items, Jak’Sho, The Protean and Heartsteel, they appear to be even more unkillable than before.
When going off against long ranged champions, their low range, which should be their vulnerability, doesn’t really matter because no amount of damage can take them down. Eventually, they will catch up with the long-ranged champions, and that’s the end for them.
One of the concerns with Fighters right now is the amount of healing and sustain they’ve been gaining, which means they can take a critical blow and recover back up before dying owing to their natural durability, making it feel unfair to play them.
While these modifications should be implemented in the next patches, no formal details have been released. More information, though, should be available in the following weeks.
