One of the League of Legends game designers has revealed the balance targets for the upcoming update 11.18. The patch will include buffs to popular champions like Darius, Garen and Graves.

The League of Legends lead gameplay designer Jeevun Sidhu has revealed the changes for the upcoming patch 11.18. This is one of the biggest regular season patches since it includes changes to 33 champions. This will surely impact the meta and champions we're going to see in the upcoming 2021 World Championship. Luckily the Worlds patch will arrive in around three weeks and Riot will have the chance to make some further adjustments.

Gangplank has been one of the strongest champions on the current patch and GP one-shoting squishy champions have been taking over most of the last week's League of Legends montages. It certainly is a surprise that Riot decide to further buff this champion and we can expect him take over the top lane meta.

Talon, Zed and Qiyana are three AD assassins that will receive buffs for the jungle position. Reducing Qiyana's attack speed bonus from her W a couple of months ago has made her jungle clear significantly worse and reverting this change could push her back into the jungle.

Trundle support has been one of the most picked support in the previous LEC playoffs. His Pillar of Ice (E) has the potential to completely lock up targets if placed correctly. It seems like Riot doesn't really like him in this position and we are going to see a Trundle nerf targeting his support power.

Aphelios and Ashe have also been two of the strongest champions for the ADC role in professional League of Legends during the weekend. Ashe has the ability to engage in fights with her ultimate while Aphelios seems to be probably the strongest team-fighting AD carry at the moment.
