League of Legends Patch 12.19 Preview


Here are what changes you can expect from the League of Legends patch 12.19.


While the pro players’ eyes are on patch 12.18 as it will be the Worlds patch, for a heavy majority of the player base, the regular patch cycles will continue next week with patch 12.19. After a very quiet patch 12.18, mainly not to change the meta too heavily ahead of a big tournament, there seem to be a lot more changes coming next week, as we saw from a tweet by the design team lead, Matt ‘Phroxzon’ Leung-Harrison.

Most of the changes in the patch are buffs, and some of these champions are already reasonably strong. Both Ekko and Sona are champions that aren’t performing too poorly, but Riot is trying to give them a nudge. We will also see the Nasus buffs that were pulled from the Worlds patch, along with the mid-scope update for Syndra. Some of the most significant changes in the patch are coming in the form of champion adjustments to give them build diversity, mainly in the form of off-meta builds like jungle Blitzcrank or AP Rakan.
