ARAM is getting some more changes in Patch 13.5.

ARAM, or All Random All Mid, is an alternate game mode in League of Legends. Released in 2012, ARAM is one of only two permanent game modes still available, with the other being Summoners Rift. Over the years, ARAM as a game mode has exploded in popularity. The game mode is extremely popular with players who are merely looking to relax and have some fun with friends.

That being said, due to its casual nature, ARAM doesn’t get much attention from Riot as Summoners Rift. But with Riot’s increased focus on improving ARAM since last year, the game mode has been getting more changes. Previous year Riot reworked ARAM, which came with Hexgates, Tower Rubble, and a bunch of quality-of-life changes. They are also balancing champions specifically for ARAM.

To further improve ARAM Riot on Patch 13.5 is bringing even more changes, specifically adjusting the Turret damage on ARAM.

As any ARAM player would know that the Turrets in the game mode are kind of a joke. They do significantly less damage and are less tanky compared to their Summoners Rift counterpart. Once a team wins a fight, they can quickly take down multiple Turrets and even end the game in a single push. This is very frustrating, especially if you have a team composition that takes some time to scale up. To combat this issue, Riot on Patch 13.5 is massively buffing the Turret damage and resistances.
