Riot devs outline LoL balancing strategy for rest of the year

Normally, League of Legends players find out Riot Games’ balancing plans roughly two weeks ahead of the patch release. But, this time around, the devs are taking a different approach and they’re outlining their balancing strategy for the rest of the year.

On July 21, League lead designer Matt “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison shared Riot’s balancing plans for the remainder of 2023. In a tweet, he said there are four major changes left on their agenda this year—buffing weak top laners instead of nerfing dominant picks, nerfing the top lane and jungle, and taking yet another big look at early-game snowballing.
