In the upcoming patch 10.12, Akali is finally getting a buff where Fiddlesticks will taste his first nerf since his rework.
Ever since Fiddlesticks rework went live, he was considered as one of the weakest champions in League of Legends. As a result, Riot has to give him a hotfix buff just after three days of his rework but it didn’t help him at all. He was undergone with two more buffs in patch 10.9 and 10.11.
But his buff in patch 10.11 was a little bit too much as he went from one of the worst champions to the highest win rate jungler in patch 10.11. Even Riot Scruffy said, “we went a bit hard last patch.”
The Fiddle is currently sitting around with a 53% win rate in the jungle and he also has one the highest win rates in all most all elos. Thus, Riot is taking away some of his strength back in patch 10.12 which will also be his first nerf ever since his rework.
Akali on the other hand has one of the lowest win rates in League of Legends. She went from the must pick or ban champion at the start of season 10 to a champion no one wants to pick.
She is still hovering around a 45% win rate according to u.gg, as a result, Riot is trying to bring her back in the upcoming patch 10.12.
League of Legends lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter tweeted previewing the upcoming patch 10.12 that feature Akali buff and Fiddlesticks nerf. The changes will hit PBE for testing and ship into the live servers on patch 10.12.
