Hey everyone and welcome to Patch 8.2, the second patch of the season!
I’m Riot Novalas & I’m a QA Analyst on Riot’s Playtest Team, a group of high elo players who work on Core Gameplay playing new champions, reworks, balance tweaks, items, and map updates before they’re released. It’s our job to test the changes that our designers come up with and ensure that we’re introducing positive changes to League in terms of both balance and fun.
Patch Chat serves as an opportunity for us to talk about the patches that come out every two weeks.
You can find information on the most recent patch by following this link:
In this patch, we've given Evelynn, Kha'Zix, and Vayne some nerfs. Ornn isn't unstoppable anymore, btw. Jinx received some changes to her play pattern. Nunu and Sona got some love! Sightstone, as an item, as well as all of it's upgrades are now gonezo and your support items now transform into a warding item!
Ask us ANYTHING about 8.2! Any changes that you have questions about? Maybe our favorite rune builds? Or how often we execute to jungle camps? We're also down to just chat, though!
Disclaimer: We have no insight on upcoming/future skins.
