After Master Yi, Gwen, and Sivir, League of Legends’ newest champion, Nilah has now been hotfix nerfed on League of Legends patch 12.13.

After months of speculations, Riot Games finally released League of Legends 161st champion, Nilah, the Joy Unbound. However, because of her simple yet modern & effective kit, Nilah seems to be dominating the soloq after her release.

While most of the champions, after their release, tend to have around 40% win rate, Nilah has a massive 52% win rate at all ranks. Moreover, she also has a 10.9% pick rate while getting banned in almost 40% of matches.

Many players have already pointed out how strong Nilah is since her release in PBE. Riot, however, did tweak her kit before her release in live servers — yet, it seems like it’s not enough.

Players are still calling out her “insanely overpowered” passive, where she can stack shield infinitely and gain “infinite” XP while doing the laning phase. Some are even calling her the most “broken” champion since Samira.

Well, all the criticism and overpowered data lead to one thing, getting a hotfix nerf.

Riot has already hotfix nerfed Master Yi for having more than a 56% win rate; Gwen & Sivir were also hit by that.

Now, Riot Games has officially confirmed that they are also hotfixing Nilah in League of Legends patch 12.13, nerfing her passive, Q, and E.
