A tweet from Mark Yetter, a Riot Games employee, revealed the intended balance targets for patch 10.8. It seems like Kalista is getting pushed out of the top lane, while on the other side a couple of other AD carries are getting buffed.
League of Legends' lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, revealed some new balance targets for the upcoming 10.8 patch. The specific changes aren't out yet, but we have a brief overview of what the new patch might be including.
The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:
- Master Yi
Kalista has seen a big rise in popularity both on top lane and in the AD Carry role in the last couple of patches. She has a very dominant early game as the constant kiting, together with Rend (E) allows her to get the better of the opponent in most of the trades.
Sett has been a top priority pick for a couple of patches now. His ability to play every role besides ADC makes him a very reliable flex pick in the draft, so the fact that he's getting nerfed doesn't come as a surprise.
Champions that will receive buffs this patch include:
We could be heading back to the last season's Kai'Sa - Xayah ADC meta, considering the fact that they are slowly getting buffed with each patch in addition to the other strong AD carries like Senna and Kalista getting tuned down again.
Urgot has been seeing some love for a couple of patches now and it seems like Riot is trying to push him back into the top lane meta where he rightfully belongs.
