One of the League of Legends game designers has revealed the balance targets for the upcoming update 11.20. The patch will include changes to multiple champions.

One of the League of Legends game designers called RiotPhlox has revealed the balance targets for one the upcoming patch 10.20.

The following champions will receive nerfs:

  • Taliyah
  • Amumu
  • Irelia
  • Singed
  • Jarvan IV
  • Shen

Amumu has become one of the strongest champions in the game but not in the Jungle role. He's become of the, if not the strongest engage supports in the game. Making him able to use his Bandage Toss (Q) twice with a three seconds cooldown has allowed him to chase down his opponents with greater efficiency.

Taliyah will receive some much-needed nerfs targeting her jungle power. Riot can't seem to find the sweet spot when it comes to balancing this unusual champion. We could see some damage reduction in the jungle role since that's the easiest way to push a champion away from this role.

Even after the recent nerfs, Irelia is still one of the strongest mid-lane champions in the game. She has incredible outplay potential, especially early on. Her recent mini-rework has proven to be successful since we've seen an overall increase in her popularity.

Champions that are getting buffed include:

  • Senna
  • Darius
  • Elise
  • Hecarim
  • Udyr

Darius has fallen off over the last couple of patches. He doesn't seem to be as dominant against the current meta top lane champions such as Sett. He becomes quite useless if he doesn't get to push his lane bully lead into the mid-game teamfights or split-push strategies.
