League of Legends Season 11 Patch 11.1: Buffs, Nerfs, Release Date, and More

League of Legends’ new season 11 patch 11.1 is going to focus on further item balance along with champion changes, and much more.

The 2021 preseason was all about the new Mythic items, item overhaul, and some other meta defining changes. With all these new changes coming into League of Legends in one patch, some items like Tank Mythic items found an edge over others as tank champions were dominating the game in the preseason.

Riot however did bring some major nerfs to tank items and tank champions. But even with those nerfs, apparently, tanks were still strong in the last patch of preseason bringing Riot to hotfix Sunfire Aegis once again in patch 10.25b.

With the downfall of tanks, fighter/assassin class champions have now taken over the game. Meanwhile, Riot has already given nerf to Akali, Anivia, Olaf, and some others in the hotfix.

And now for the upcoming patch 11.1, League of Legends’ lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has outlined further balance changes for items and champions.

“There’s still likely some additions coming in January after we see how things go over the rest of the month,” Riot Scruffy said. “Also re-sharing the burst shift we’re doing to transfer some of the up front burst into stats.”
