Patch preview

For this patch, we’re mainly focusing on bug fixes, as well as some more buffs to several champions. The reason we went for this focus was to prepare for the upcoming patch, in which we’re preparing some interesting solutions to damage-vs-defense, counters to tank-stacked teams, and other larger balance changes.

We added an extra maximum Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap to CaitlynSquare Caitlyn, which will improve her team utility presence, along with an attack speed boost to give her a little more ability to scale into late-game damage.

GarenSquare Garen’s movement speed was increased to 320, and gave a massive early game increase to the damage reduction on Courage Courage. This ability needs to be more reliable in the laning phase to allow Garen to close and be effective. Doubling the rank 1 value should be a big help in this regard.

GalioSquare Galio’s ultimate has had it range increased by 50, to give it some additional value in more spread out fights. We plan to continue adjusting Galio.

Finally, we’ve changed turrets to protect better against unattended minion waves, but less against coordinated pushes. We wanted to avoid lengthening game times, but at the same time want to make it so leaving minion waves unattended isn’t quite so punishing. This change aims to accomplish that.
