True unleashed power: Riot details Synd’s mid-scope update, including a new and deadly late-game passive

Synd has always been a staple pick in the champion pools of League of Legends mid laners around the world, but she might be getting some sweeping changes to her kit in Riot Games’ upcoming mid-scope update. Among other changes, the Dark Sovereign is getting a new passive that could change the way she scales into the later stages of a game.

Associate game designer Tim “Truexy” Jiang outlined all of the big shifts in power that the developers had in mind, with the idea of keeping Synd’s core gameplay intact, but enhancing her passive to give players a chance to have an even bigger impact later in a match, along with the true feeling of a power upgde.
