Patch 8.23 Preseason

This is a huge patch so make sure to watch everything in the video!

Aatrox
Taliyah
Ezreal
Lissandra
Doran's Shield
Guinsoo's Rageblade
Hunter's Machete
Relic Shield
Control Ward

Aatrox (Buffed) - Aatrox got a slight change to his ultimate, trading duration for a buff to bloodwell. Aatrox is going to continue to be a strong pick in both solo lanes this patch.

Taliyah (Nerfed) - Taliyah got changes to her Q that will result in slower jungle clears. She is going to remain on our jungle A tier for the time being.

Ezreal (Buffed) - W base damage increased; AP ratio now scales with rank. R damage decreased against minions and non-epic monsters but no longer falls off per target hit.

Lissandra (Changed) - New passive. Mana regeneration growth increased. Q, W costs decreased. W damage decreased. Short E dashes are faster. R ratio decreased.

Doran's Shield (Changed) - Passive regeneration now based on missing health.

Guinsoo's Rageblade (Changed) - On-hit flat damage increased; ratios removed. Now grants armor and magic penetration. Stacks no longer grant AD/AP. Cost decreased.

Hunter's Machete (Buffed) - The Monster Hunter gold penalty removed has been removed from both Hunter's Machete and Hunter's Talisman.

Relic Shield (Buffed) - Minion execute threshold increased for Relic Shield and it's upgrades.

Control Ward (Nerfed) - Control Ward inventory cap reduced. Trinkets scale with average level of all champs in the game instead of owner's level. Warding Totem ward duration decreased late.

Patch 8.22

This is a small balance patch that will only have a slight impact on the game. Check out the 8.22 Tier Lists to see what champions you should pick to dominate.

Fiora
Maokai
Viktor
Nunu & Willump
Trundle
Akali
LeBlanc
Pyke

Fiora (Changed) - Fiora's lunge will now prioritize her ultimate’s vitals over her passive’s vitals.

Maokai (Buffed) - Maokai's E's base max health damage is being increased and the cooldown is being decreased as well. Riot specifically mentioned that this will be a nice bump for “jungle” Maokai, but it will likely only affect top lane.

Viktor (Changed) - The base damages of Viktor's R and Q are being reduced. However, the ratios of these abilities are being increased to compensate. This change is aimed at top lane Viktor.

Nunu & Willump (Buffed) - Nunu and Willump's base AD is being increased from 57 to 61. There is also a huge increase to Consume’s healing when targeting an enemy champion. Both the base and ratio values are being increased.

Trundle (Buffed) - Trundle's Q will have both increased base damage and ratio scaling.

Akali (Nerfed) - The first change to Akali is the removal of last hit assistance. The second change is a major cooldown increase to her W at early ranks. The last change decreases the base damage of her ultimate at rank 1 and increases the base damage by the same amount at rank 3.

LeBlanc (Nerfed) - The base damage on LeBlanc's W is being reduced by 10 at all ranks.

Pyke (Changed) - Pyke's passive will now scale heavily off AD (as opposed to HP). His W will cost less mana and grant less speed, however the speed increase will now scale with lethality. Pyke's E stun duration will be reduced, but will now also scale with lethality.

26 Oct

Welcome to the League of Legends Meta Page!

This patch features a variety of champion changes to every role. There aren't any major changes that will affect the meta this time around.

Alistar
Ashe
Aurelion Sol
Ezreal
Irelia
Ivern
Kai'Sa
Karma
Karthus
Zac
Zoe

Alistar (Nerfed) - Alistar's base HP is being reduced this patch. You'll have to be more careful in early game encounters. Alistar is going to remain a S tier champion for this patch.

Ashe (Buffed) - Ashe's passive and W are being buffed this patch. She'll have more utility, but will still lack damage. Ashe is going to a B tier ADC this patch.

Aurelion Sol (Nerfed) - Aurelion Sol's base HP is being nerfed, but base HP regen is being buffed. The numerical values of this change weren't significant. Aurelion Sol will continue to be a strong A tier mid laner.

Ezreal (Buffed) - Ezreal's W is going to deal more damage this patch. This should help Ezreal out, but he might still lack carry potential. Ezreal is still an A tier champion, but is at risk for being put into the B tier.

Irelia (Nerfed) - Irelia's base movement speed is reduced. This nerf isn't going to have a large effect on Irelia. She is still a S tier mid and top laner.

Ivern (Buffed) - Ivern is getting buffs to his base movement speed, W damage, and E shield. This will help Ivern, but won't make him a top tier pick. Ivern doesn't have a spot in our tier list this patch.

Kai'Sa (Nerfed) - Kai'sa's passive and R shield duration are being nerfed. Her AP build's late game won't be as strong in the late game, but should still be great overall. Kai'sa is still in our S tier this patch.

Karma (Buffed) - Karma's empowered W root duration is being increased. This buff should help Karma's playmaking ability substantially. Karma is going to remain in our B tier until we see more players perform well with her.

Karthus (Buffed) - Karthus's mana cost on W and R are being reduced this patch. The cooldown of W is being reduced as well. This should help Karthus in the early and mid game. Karthus doesn't have a spot in our tier list this patch.

Zac (Buffed) - Zac's Q is receiving a damage buff. The value of the buff isn't very high, so there won't be a significant effect. Zac isn't performing well enough for a spot on our tier list.

Zoe (Buffed) - Zoe is receiving a damage buff on her Q and cooldown reduction on her E. These changes are great and should help Zoe a lot. She is going to remain off of our tier list for now, but should make an appearance soon.
