LoL Arena’s first big changes are headed to the PBE

League of Legends’ upcoming Arena game mode is a breath of fresh air for veteran players of the game. But with the introduction of a new mode, new balancing challenges are sure to arise. And today, League dev Madness Heroo posted a full list of upcoming changes for the game mode, including buffs and nerfs to a slew of champions, items, and the mode’s trademark mechanic: augments. 

All of the changes that are being made are based on data that Riot has been gathering from Arena players on the League PBE. The game mode has taken off since it launched on the test server on June 27, and with just under two weeks to go until it goes live to the greater League community, the devs are making sure the game is completely balanced before the full player base gets their hands on it
