For the upcoming League of Legends patch 10.22, Riot Games has identified four priority targets that will be hit by the nerf hammer. Samira, Zed, Lulu, and Karthus will all be removed in the next update, and first off, the bottom laners will be happy to know that Samira is getting more extended nerfs to her kit. She continues to climb in power as more and more players master her explosive ability combos, according to Mark “Scruffy” Yetter, Riot’s gameplay design manager, Patch 10.22 Preview. Last patch of the season and things are pretty stable. This includes some of the champion tweaks we started working on last week. pic.twitter.com/pk7tJcvgsB – Mark Yetter (@MarkYetter) October 19, 2020 The nerves she received in patch 10.21 clearly weren’t enough. It still hovers around a 75 percent ban rate at Platinum ranks and above, with a 51 percent win rate to boot. Meanwhile, Zed will be getting nerves “to get him in line” since he’s the strongest middle track champion among the “qualifiers” ranks right now – according to Riot’s balance framework, this is between Platinum IV and Grandmaster. The Master of Shadows has the highest ban rate of any middle lane champion at 40%, according to U.GG. Lulu will also benefit from a few tweaks, especially with his rise to power in the upper lane among the “qualified” ranks and above. . The Witch Fae became popular in the Korean solo queue, and other regions began to pick her up soon after. The devs will change his numbers to reduce his effectiveness as a solo laner in this patch, and finally, Karthus will get nerfs to reduce his influence in Challenger. He has the second highest win rate of any jungler among players rated Platinum or higher at this time. U.GG also says he’s the second highest Banned Jungle Champion behind Lillia among Challenger players, be sure to follow us on YouTube for more esports news and analysis.
