Karma gets a mini-rework type change on patch 11.16

Karma is getting some major mini-rework type changes in League of Legends patch 11.16.

Enchanters are somewhat back in the meta as most of the engage support champions received multiple nerfs in Season 11. Although Karma’s stats might not be as good as Lulu’s, The Enlightened One is also dominating the soloq in the support role.

Currently, on patch 11.15 soloq, Karma has a massive 10.4% pick rate in the support role while having a 47.96% win rate. Moreover, she is also being played in Top and Mid but compared to her support presence it’s kinda negligible.

However, on the other hand, in pro games, it’s totally different. She is currently being flex-picked in Top, Mid, and Support simultaneously. On top of that, sometimes she is also being played on the ADC role where she has around an 80% win rate.

But in the last couple of patches, we have seen that Riot doesn’t like the champions who have strong flex potentials — Rumble and Pantheon are some of them. Likewise, Karma is also getting the same fate.

Even though Riot didn’t mention any kind of changes in the Patch 11.16 preview, they are testing some major Karmar changes in the PBE that can arguably be called a mini-rework similar to Sona.
