It is time for another preview, and after the last two big patches, League of Legends is finally balancing itself out with a smaller patch with patch 12.12.
Patch 12.10 in League of Legends meant a complete overhaul of the usual meta, giving squishy champions a chance to regain their position as the ultimate DPS, by allowing them to survive to actually deal damage, all the while gutting the AD assassin class.
On the other hand, patch 12.11 was meant to bring the assassins back up to speed but that was rejected in favor of more PBE testing. After all it wouldn't do to just reverse the durability changes for one class of champions, immediately after implementing them.
Patch 12.12 on the other hand is meant to be a smaller patch, one that won't shake up the meta and will give it time to settle, with only a few champions buffed and nerfed.
Champions buffed in League of Legends patch 12.12 are:
The champions getting nerfed in patch 12.12 are:
- Dr. Mundo
In addition, Katarina and Shaco are getting their build paths adjusted, and it remains to be seen what Riot exactly mean by that. It likely refers to their tank builds though, which are still as annoying as ever.
And, speaking of annoying, Soraka and Yuumi are getting their healing adjusted as well. We can only hope it will result in their healing not getting even more broken than it already is.
