Fourteen champions are getting buffed before playoffs begin for pro play.
In an attempt to “diversify the playoffs meta,” Riot Games’ lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter released a preview earlier today of the champions being buffed in League of Legends Patch 10.16.
Multiple champions are getting buffed and nerfed in the upcoming patch before the developers can fine-tune the meta for Worlds this year. Although the specific changes haven’t been shown just yet, the champions getting buffed might have a big impact on the team compositions we see when the postseason arrives.
