lol patch 12.14 update

Big changes made in the League of Legends patch 12.14 update

LoL Teh “GravityWillFall” Wi-Liam

Plenty of favourites get hit with nerfs and buffs in this fortnightly patch.

Just two weeks ago, we saw the release of Nilah in patch 12.13 and now, we have got yet another fortnightly patch update. The League of Legends patch 12.14 update is quite massive with a huge focus on balance adjustments. Popular champions in both pro and pub play have been hit with nerfs, buffs, and adjustments. Even items, summoner spells, runes, drakes, Elder Dragons, and Rift Heralds are hit with some changes, making this one of the more significant updates in recent times.

A total of 18 champions are a part of the patch 12.14 update with six getting nerfed while an additional seven get buffed and the remaining five get some much-needed adjustments. The likes of Zeri and Renata Glasc are part of the nerf pool, which isn't uncommon given that they are the latest champions of this season and have been strong picks in professional play since their release.
