One of the League of Legends game designers has revealed the balance targets for the upcoming update 12.2. The patch will include changes to multiple system adjustments.

Preseason has brought multiple changes to the game of League of Legends  which usually break the game for a couple of weeks and players have to wait for the right patch to drop.

One of the League of Legends game designers, Riot Phlox has League of Legends has revealed  the balance targets for the upcoming patch 12.4.

The patch will include the following champion buffs:

  • Aatrox
  • Illaoi
  • Amumu
  • Ashe
  • Lucian
  • Kalista
  • Xayah
  • Sett
  • Rumble
  • Neeko
  • Nami

The fact that both Lucian and Nami are both getting buffed in the upcoming patch could mean that they will be the strongest duo in the bot lane once again, especially in the current bot-heavy meta. We could get a big shift in the ADC meta considering that four AD carries are recieving a buff.

Neeko currently holds a very healthy 50.5 per cent win rate which means that these buffs could bring her back to the meta for the mid lane position.

The following champions will get a nerf:

  • Zeri
  • Mundo
  • Qiyana
  • Veigar
  • Blitzcrank
  • Nunu
  • Master Yi

Riot seem to struggle with finding the sweet spot when it comes to balancing the new League of Legends champion Zeri as she's scheduled to recieve another set of nerfs. Veigar is probably the strongest mage in the lower elo considering that he's a very strong pick against Akali.
