Some of the changes were to be expected. But Riot surprised us with others!

On 13.09 it’s patch day again!

A lot of things have been adjusted to give the meta a little push in the right direction with a view to the Worlds and to bring too strong champions such as Tryndamere to a normal level.

While we are looking forward to the changes, the highlight of the patch will surely be the new champion Briar as a bloodthirsty jungler.

Expected nerfs and surprising changes

The nerfs to Jarvan IV, Tryndamere or Red Kayn were to be expected and also bitterly necessary. However, we expect rather small adjustments, as Riot doesn’t want to make any big experiments so close to the Worlds.

A surprising guest in the Patch Notes is the item Stormrazor, which has played a big role in few item builds so far. In order to bring more variation into the (first) item choice of ADC’s, the item should now be buffed.

Just like the item, the adaptation for Gwen in Jungle (affectionately Gwungle called) is a surprise for our eyes.  Gwen is less known for her role as gromp butcher and raptor barber than as an extremely strong toplaner with high outplay potential. What exactly is planned remains to be seen.
