Riot Games Releases Unexpected Balance Update (Patch 13.24b) in League of Legends
Just when League of Legends fans thought they could settle into the current patch and make it through the rest of the 2023 season, Riot Games has introduced another balance update in the form of Patch 13.24b. Here are the key changes that have affected eight champions.
This update targets eight League of Legends champions, including the newcomer Hway and reevaluates the balance of the champion, Yone. According to Lead Game Designer Matt Lyon-Harrison, some of these changes are aimed at toning down the power of champions that have been prominent in professional play.
Changes include both buffs and nerfs. For instance, Corki receives an increase in base attack damage and health, while Nami, Yone, and other champions experience reductions in power.
The update also addresses Hway, a new champion who proved challenging for players in the early stages. Developers believe these adjustments will make him more viable. Overall, Patch 13.24b tweaks the current meta-game and sets the stage for a more engaging League of Legends gameplay experience.
