Riot devs hit Kayn, Smolder way too hard with last LoL nerfs so now they’re rebuffing them

We’re a week out from League of Legends Patch 14.7, which means it’s time for the usual patch preview, and there’s pretty bad news for those looking to avoid Kayn and Smolder, as both champions are getting buffed again after a little too much tuning last update.

Lead gameplay designer Matt “Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison has today revealed the 16 champs that are going to be receiving adjustments in League Patch 14.7 in a post on X (formerly Twitter), with Kayn’s blue form and Smolder both right at the top of the list for buffs. Phroxzon said that the team is “directionally happy” with where the majority of champs are at, but for Kayn and Smolder specifically, he said the nerfs in 14.6 were too much.
