League of Legends 12.20 patch notes

League of Legends is a multiplayer online game, but it isn't an MMO in the sense that it focuses on gameplay rather than an open world to explore. The title is a MOBA that can be challenging to get into for newbies, especially since it has been on the market for a long time, but it does not require a strong PC to play.

We recently received a significant LoL patch 12.19 update which included various changes in the main game, including major buffs and nerfs for several champions, as well as interesting gameplay adjustments.

Now while Riot continues to tinker with all of the major changes in LoL patch 12.20, the live game is indeed moving forward. After dealing with more than 10 champions in the previous update, the developer is now focusing on adjusting a few champions' abilities.

Riot is concentrating on champions like Jayce, Gwen, Blitzcrank, and others in patch 12.20. Moreover, the main focus of the LoL patch 12.20 is to bring new changes to balance the meta.

So let's get to know what has been detailed so far with regards to the League of Legends 12.20 patch, including changes, champions buffs and nerfs, new releases, and more.

League of Legends 12.20 patch notes

League of Legends Designers on the Summoner's Rift team, shared a preview of the upcoming LoL patch 12.20 changes on October 11th.

A few champions will be nerfed as usual, while League of Legends Patch 12.20 will also enhance the abilities of a few champions.

RiotPhroxzon stated regarding the LoL 12.20 patch, "Patch 12.20! Buffing Rammus, because he went down a lot after a change to how his W calculates. Small buffs to others in the list. Blitz JG changes are a buff, but he needs a decent tap down for Supp. Aatrox is still too strong after Eclipse changes, so tapping him down."

Jayce, Wukong (Top), Gwen, and others are among the champions that will be buffed as part of the 12.20 update, and Aatrox, Maokai, and Sett will be receiving nerfs. Moreover, Blitzcrank and Elise is the champion that will receive changes to their kits with the LoL 12.20 patch.
