LS has dubbed League of Legends Patch 13.8, the last one heading into the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational, the “most useless MSI patch ever” in a scathing YouTube video on April 19. The reason, according to the popular content creator, is there is a lack of competitive balance changes, which he feels is an absolute joke.
The patch buffed ten heroes, including Ezreal, Garen, Janna, Kha’zix, Kog’Maw, Leona, Lillia, Nidalee, Poppy, and Zoe, and nerfed four: Aurelion Sol, Jarvan IV, Malphite, and Rakan. It also only changed one item, Cosmic Drive. What’s more, none of these changes were particularly drastic. For that reason, LS is convinced the new League patch will do little to shake things up heading into MSI and he wasn’t impressed.
