Mark Yetter, a Riot Games employee, revealed the balance targets for patch 10.15. There are some very interesting names, especially on the buff list which includes Yuumi and Irelia among a number of other champions.

League of Legends lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, also know as Riot Scruffy has revealed which champions are getting changed in the upcoming patch 10.15.

The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:

  • Aphelios
  • Ornn
  • Lee Sin
  • Fiddlesticks
  • Twisted Fate
  • Thresh

Even though it seems as though Riot can't seem to stop nerfing Aphelios, this change will only affect his turret spin up time. He will most likely remain one of the strongest champions down in the bottom lane.

The nerf to Twisted Fate could be targeting pro play since he's become one of the top priority picks for the mid lane in certain team compositions.

Tank Fiddlesticks has become an ongoing trend both in solo queue and in pro play. Once Fiddle finishes his two item, he becomes almost unkillable in most match-ups.

Champions that will receive buffs this patch include:

  • Skarner
  • Swain
  • Shen
  • Gragas
  • Irelia
  • Caitlyn
  • Yuumi

After the initial nerf, Yuumi's win rate has dropped by a staggering 3.5 per cent and she currently holds an atrocious 46.28 per cent win rate which puts her second to last on the support win percentage charts. The balance team revealed that the buff will target her mana restore on the passive which could bring Yuumi back into the support meta.

The new patch will also bring nerfs to the Unsealed Spellbook which could push champions like Galio or Twisted Fate out of the mid lane meta.
