On this episode of Phreak Show, we’re taking a look at the all important Patch 9.19 which will be our 2019 World Championship patch.
Which Champions will be competing to see.
Which ones are departing to pro meta.
Who’s coming in from fresh to bench.
Q can now hit turrets and wards. E2 can now crit turrets.
Fiora’s in an acceptable place when it comes to matchups in lane, but she struggles to convert her lane victories into game victories.
Q – Lunge
Free Masterwork upgrades happen earlier.
Making Ornn’s unique attributes happen earlier in the game.
Passive – Living Forge
W base shield increased.
Sion is unusually weak in skilled play. We’re buffing his on-demand shielding, since this is more helpful in higher-level play.
W – Soul Furnace
Base armor increased. Unburrowed Q now works on turrets.
We’re making Rek’Sai’s auto attacks work the way players expect them along with some more durability.
Passive base heal increased. Q base damage increased later.
Xin could use some love after the Scuttler changes decreased his early game power value so we’re helping out.
Passive – Determination
Q – Three Talon Strike
E attack speed increased; base damage increased.
Buffing TF in a way so he’s better in the match-ups that favor him, but that preserve his existing vulnerabilities to ranged champions.
E – Stacked Deck
- Every Game players will see Orianna Ban.
- Bjergsen won’t lose a single game at Worlds this year on Syndra
- Neither CLG or TSM will make it out of groups this year
Passive slow increased. Q now an auto attack reset.
Increasing Ashe’s utility so she can be considered a good pick when a player wants to run down opponents in the early game. In addition, we’re returning the full auto attack reset to her Q. We’ve decided that the minimal gameplay gains weren’t worth the adverse effect on the satisfaction of playing Ashe.
Passive – Frost Shot
Q – Ranger’s Focus
R base AD increased.
Vayne is still a tad weak after the last round of buffs, so we’re giving her more late-game power.
R – Final Hour
