New League of Legends champion Hwei gets buffed day after release due to low winrate

The new midlaner mage Hwei received some buffs to his abilities on December 8, the day after he arrived at League of Legends. The developers boosted five skill combinations. The changes were revealed on Twitter by the champion designer August "August" Browning.

Hwei is quite a complicated hero, so the impact of these changes is hard to predict. Most likely, Riot buffed him because the midlaner's winrate was only around 30% after the first 24 hours of play. However, the picture may change as the players get used to the new character. What's interesting is that Riot Games heavily nerfed him after release on PBE server, but now it seems that they did too much damage. The last champion, Briar, also had a poor winrate, got slightly buffed, but has only seen nerfs since then.
