Riot Games is already pushing some notable changes to one of the most if not the most overpowered item Eclipse along with few other items with the preseason patch 10.23 hotfix.

The biggest patch of this year, the preseason patch 10.23 just went live on November 11th with new item class, overhaul, and some other major updates. With so many new things coming in, it was pretty much decided that players would have to encounter some “broken” or “overpowered” items or champions in the first few days. Even Riot acknowledged that and said, “We’re gathering tons of data and feedback.”

And now, just after one day, League of Legends’ lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has revealed their plan to hotfix nerf or buff some of the new changes.

“We know there is lots lots more to do in the next few patches, just starting to chip away at the most out of balance items and champs,” Riot Scruffy on the hotfix changes.
