What happens to the meta?

Riot Games have come out for what it's worth and said that there's nothing too wild with Patch Update 11.15. At most, they're adding some much-needed buffs to certain champions that have barely seen the light of day.

The likes of Blitzcrank, Kennen, and Xayah are just some of the names that have received some considerable buffs to bring them back to the Rift. As for the nerfs, popular picks like Gwen, Wukong, and Annie received some big nerfs, which hopefully brings a greater sense of balance to the game.

The change to Hullbreaker could cause some concern as it allows for greater solo split pushing opportunities. This legendary item gets a much-needed buff, giving players who love to solo split push even greater efficiency and value for their gold.


Are you excited by the changes?

Yes, can’t wait to try Akshan out!
