LoL Patch 14.2 aims to address burst items, champs spiraling out of control

Major nerfs are coming far and wide to League of Legends in the upcoming Patch 14.2 which rolls out on Jan. 24, with both items and champions under the spotlight after a tumultuous and chaotic return last fortnight.

When season 14 began, no one expected the item changes to hit the Rift as hard as they did. These additions and changes have made ranked and normal League games feel oppressive and brutal to the point where players have been dubbing it the “League of One Shots.” Not even a follow-up Jan. 12 micropatch could properly stave off the high burst AP meta or the multi-support-item-building champs dominating the Rift.
