CAIT AND YUUMI BUFF? DUO SMURFS, LETS GO!
“Hi, we’re so happy you’re here!
This patch, we welcome the arrival of the Spirit Blossom Festival, first with the entrance of Lillia, our brave guardian from Ionia, and then the return of Nexus Blitz (oh yes, it’s back!), all set in an ethereal realm of wondrous magic and bloom.
Then, greetings to a refreshed Swain! We’re hoping these spicy changes (higher cast cadence and huge bump up in range) will fire up his power both as a mid laner and support. We’ve also taken another pass at Aphelios to tone down his dominance and fine-tune the synergy of his Flamethrower with Runaan’s.
For the rest of our changelist, we’ve made some Pro-targeted adjustments to champions like Shen and Lee Sin to encourage more diversity in their lanes, while also nudging old friends like Caitlin and Gragas back onto the scene.
In addition, we’re giving some folks a couple visual changes and audio fixes, focusing on champions with effects that have become outdated in comparison to their newer peers.
Oh, and one more thing— we’ve brought more flex into Flex queue by lifting rank restrictions! We know, we’re just flexing at this point.
Now, go forth. It’s your time to blossom.”
