The latest League of Legends patch brings with it the new (and much scarier) version of Fiddlesticks, alongside a host of changes to champions, runes, items, and the ranking system.

ARAM is also getting a much-needed update, with the weekly free rotation taking center stage. Going forward, Riot is making a total of 65 champions (always) free to play in ARAM.

Here’s the full notes for League’s Patch 10.7.

Premade balance in ranked

  • Riot has been working on some matchmaking improvements like Autofill Balance to make sure that each game of League feels as fair as possible.
  • With this follow-up change, Riot is attempting to make sure that when one team in a Solo/Duo game has a duo, the other team should have one as well.
  • This change will only be applying to Ranked Solo/Duo for right now. Riot will be looking into adding it to Flex and Normal games, but since premade can be of all different sizes in those modes, making them equivalent across teams can be much more complicated.
