League of Legends patch 12.23 preview: Zeri and Maokai buffs, jungle nerf details2022-11-29 09:11:00
Riot Games released a patch 12.23 preview for League of Legends. Zeri, Cho'Gath, Zac, and other champions will be nerfed, while Yuumi, Trundle, and Mordekaiser will receive nerfs. As usual, the details were posted on Twitter by the game lead balance designer Matt "Phroxzon" Leung-Harrison.
The developers address tanks in the upcoming update. They recently became weaker than they should have, losing 2-3% winrate on average.
Tanks are weak, barring individual outlier synergy with items, so we're buffing them (over items) to avoid poaching. Tanks getting buffs have dropped 2-3% off the patch. Buffs to them + Hydra nerf will hopefully put them in a good spot.
He also shared the details of the upcoming jungle nerf that was announced earlier. The adjustments should mostly affect the speed of early camp clearing.
Patch 12.23 is scheduled for December 7. Riot Games will rework Zeri and Dr. Mundo, along with Kassadin. The final list of adjustments will be posted on the official website the day before their release.
