League of Legends developer Riot Games seems to be looking at some of the weaker builds of multiplayer games for the final patch of this year’s title. League of Legends patch 10.24 will be released next week, after which it will move to patch 10.25, the final update for 2020. The studio has announced that it will focus on strengthening “low-performance champions and classes.”
“With 10.24 locked down, we’ve completed planning for our next patch,” lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter said on Twitter. “This time the focus is on poorly performing champions and classes after 10.24 with a lot of nerfs.” He hasn’t provided details about who these weak champions or weak classes are yet. “I hope we’ll get to know the details soon and reach most of what you’re looking for,” he added.
If you make sure that the MOBA game PBE has been tested for 10.24 and you “lock in” and go live, you’ll find that it’s certainly a pretty nervous patch. Of the six League of Legends champions seeking change in this round, four have joined nerfs (Kayle, Samira, Hecarim, Amumu), but in this update, only Tryndamere and Galio have some buffs. I’m seeing
It’s not clear what Riot has in 10.25, except that it’s been teased by tweets. A quick look at sites like U.gg will give you the idea of the champion with the lowest win rate at the time of the latest patch in all ranks. For example, it looks like Sylas, Nidalee, Gragas, Rengar, Lee Sin, Gangplank. Currently, they are sitting near the bottom of the pack, and some have a low win rate. But it’s not clear what Riot has changed.
With 10.24 locked down, planning for the next patch is complete. This time around, the focus is on poorly performing champions and classes after the 10.24 nerf.
You’ll see the details right away. Hopefully it will hit most of what you are looking for.

We will probably have to wait until mid or late next week when the balance adjustments start hitting the PBE for testing. Check out the site for all the details you need to know when changes arrive.
