League of Legends Season 11 will be rounding out in a few months, so Riot Games will be looking to make minor updates before the pre-season officially kicks in later this year.
Patch 11.20 will not be a part of the Worlds Championship 2021 as the international event will be held on version 11.19.
Hence, any changes the developers look to bring this time around will not reflect on the competitive stage in any way.
And speaking of changes, League of Legends gameplay designer Riot Plox tweeted recently about some of the updates that players can look forward to in 11.20.
The upcoming patch will not be a big one and will look to introduce minor balance tweaks to some champions in the game, along with two items.
League of Legends patch 11.20 preview
League of Legends patch 11.20 will look to focus more on solo-queue matchmaking than the professional scene.
In the tweet, Riot Plox explained:
“11.20 Patch Preview arrives! Now that Worlds is locked in we’re back to a more normal patch. We’re following up on a few changes that overshot a bit and otherwise doing some adjustments for soloq champs.”
Riot Plox listed out the champions and items to be hit with nerfs, buffs, and adjustments in League of Legends patch 11.20:
- Lord Dominik’s Regards
- Smite Healing
- Taliyah (jungle)
- Jarvan IV
A small part of Amumu’s kit had gotten a rework recently, which ultimately made him a menace to deal with in solo-queue games. Hence, the League of Legends developers will be toning him down a notch in patch 11.20.
Senna and Udyr buffs will also be hitting this update. The Turbo Chemtank nerf in previous patches hit Udyr somewhat hard, and he fell off the meta, which ultimately plummeted his pick rate and ban rate. With this buff, Riot will be looking to help him out quite a bit.
