One of the most popular MOBA games of all time, League of Legends will be getting a new patch update. This new update will be featuring a ton of buffs and nerfs to the characters in-game and we are excited to share all the details about it. So, consider reading this article till the end to know everything about the League of Legends Patch 12.8 update and details about the champions that are getting buffed and nerfed.
Released back in 2009, League of Legends has come a long way in terms of popularity and champion roster. Back when the game was released, it featured only a handful of champions, but now the number has increased to a significant value. Currently, in LoL, there are more than 150 champions for players to choose from in battles and this number isn’t going to stop. With that being said, whenever there is a large pool of champions available in a game, they are bound to have different/unique abilities and skills. So, this ultimately means that not every ability is superior and that is why not every champion in the game is powerful. Maintaining balance in such a large roster of champions is something that Riot Games have successfully managed to accomplish and with patch 12.8, they have introduced certain adjustments to some champions to achieve the same. The update will go live on 27 April and will feature some really interesting changes. For more details on this, continue reading.
