Riot reveals a hotfix Patch 12.10b for League of Legends, targeting champions that became overpowered or very weak following the durability rework.

Patch 12.10b is here as a hotfix to balance the massive 12.10 changes. Of course, Riot changing up the meta before and after big tournaments like MSI or Worlds is nothing new. But big updates Durability Rework in patch 12.10 are things usually seen in the preseason. So it’s no surprise how the meta shifted so massively.

Overall, the community is in love with the update so far. Assassins can’t one-shot tanks and fighters as easily as before. However, a good assassin will still be able to take out the priority carries and get out if they execute their abilities properly. The teamfights are longer, and the game seems a lot healthier than before.

Late game fighters and scaling champions are shining the most as games tend to take longer to finish. Everybody knew that champions like Vayne would become very strong after the durability update. Vayne has more than a 52% win rate in Patch 12.10 and is one of the strongest champions in the game right now. However, there are other champions as well that need some tweaks to balance things out.

Changes in Patch 12.10b

The hotfix patch will buff six champions: Renekton, Yummi, Kled, Vladimir, Diana, and Draven. In addition, Vayne, who dominated the solo queue is getting a nerf along with Kayle, Anivia, Taliyah, and Senna.
