Riot toning down the burst potential of Naafiri, Rek’Sai with nerfs in LoL Patch 13.16

Just a few months before the 2023 League of Legends World Championship, Riot Games is hoping to better stabilize the current state of the game with multiple upcoming changes—a few of which are nerfs to some champions that have ventured past the balanced state.

Riot has pushed all of the nerfs teased in yesterday’s Patch 13.16 patch preview to the game’s PBE server today, where they’ll remain for testing until they venture to live servers on Aug. 16. Like with the buffs expected to accompany this patch, some of these nerfs are rather odd, though most tone down champions that have been a tad too prevalent in the meta.
