league of legends patch 13.1

Patch 13.1, the first of the 2023 season is here

LoL Teh “GravityWillFall” Wi-Liam

Patch 13.1 brings plenty of changes to the League of Legends 2023 season.

After a short holiday break, the devs at Riot Games are back to fortnightly patch changes for the 2023 season. Starting with patch 13.1, it brings about plenty of nerfs to some of the most popular picks in the meta while also buffing some niche picks.

With a total of 14 champions that have been updated, both Jax and Rammus received adjustments to their kit to hopefully strengthen their pick rate. Aside from that, a handful of items have also received changes alongside qualify of life updates and more.
