Riot is making several quality-of-life changes to Smolder in LoL Patch 14.4

As expected, Smolder has been immensely popular after he released in Patch 14.2, but his win rate is far from satisfying. Riot Games is introducing a number of quality-of-life changes to the champion in Patch 14.4 that could potentially solve the Fiery Fledgling’s problems.

The preview for Patch 14.4 dropped on Feb. 14 from Matt “Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison. The lead gameplay designer for League of Legends outlined Smolder’s upcoming tweaks. The patch will nerf the champion’s W in the early game, as well as tweaking his Q. Smolder’s ultimate will be buffed, so the Patch will be neither a buff nor a nerf for Smolder.
