With MSI ending, all eyes are on League of Legends Patch 13.11, which is slated to give some of the game’s most hated champions some love.
The 2023 League of Legends season has seen so many buffs, nerfs, and important system changes that it’s almost impossible to keep up.
Things aren’t getting any easier with the pre-update League Patch 13.11 announcements, which were posted on Twitter by the title’s development team.
LoL Patch 13.11 Preview
High-skill champions like Akali, Kalista, and Twisted Fate are on Riot’s radar for the next wave of buffs. Renekton, Rek’Sai, and Azir will all receive minor buffs, while five champions will be nerfed: Aurelion Sol, Jinx, Aphelios, Kog’Maw, and Amumu.
- Twisted Fate
- Aurelion Sol
- Kraken Slayer
- Moonstone Renewer
- Navori Quickblades
- Statikk Shiv
- Ardent Censer
- Echoes of Helia
- Youmuu’s Ghostblade
According to League statistic site OP.GG, the seven champions receiving buffs in patch 13.11 are among the least popular, with Akali having the highest pick rate at just 3.46% in all games above Platinum. Twisted Fate (49.7 percent) is the closest to parity in terms of decent win rates among the seven champions.
And, of these champions nerfs, Aphelios is the most shocking because, unlike the other champions, he currently boasts a less-than-stellar win rate of 48.47% in League queues. So, if anything, he needs to be buffed.
Items like as the Duskblade of Draktharr, Kraken Slayer, Moonstone Renewer, and Navori Quickblades have also been improved. The majority of these items were extensively modified in League Patch 13.10 just a few days ago, with Riot devs clearly dissatisfied with how they’ve been performing over the last fortnight.
Some items that are outperforming are being nerfed, including Ardent Censer, Echoes of Helia, Galeforce, Stormrazor, and Youmuu’s Blade, which received fresh changes as recently as League Patch 13.10.
Remember that these League adjustments are still in test until they go live. League Patch 13.11 is set to be released on June 1, 2023.
