Riot is gearing up for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship with its latest patch.

Patch 11.18 is the “first of two Worlds-focused patches” coming to the game in the next month, according to Riot. Every year, to “unleash competition” and “breathe new life into the meta,” the devs release a set of nerfs and buffs catered to pro play.

Almost everything listed below has Worlds in mind, but the devs are “willing” to revert any balance changes if absolutely necessary. All in all, 23 champions are set to receive buffs in the patch, including Fizz, Twitch, and Zed.

Worlds 2021 is expected to take place at Reykjavík, Iceland’s Laugardalshöll Indoor Sporting Arena from Oct. 5 to Nov. 6, as reported by Dot Esports on Sept. 6. A total of 22 teams from 11 regional leagues will compete at the end-of-year tournament.

Here’s the full list of updates for League’s Patch 11.18.

Web match history

Riot deactivated the web match history site on Sept. 7.

“Very few players use our official match history site, and we’re okay with that,” Riot’s comms lead Paul Perscheid said. “Web match history is in a similar situation as Clubs was: Community sites have done amazing things with the match data provided by our APIs, far surpassing our site. So, as with Clubs, we’re going to fully hand things over to these experts.”

But in-client match history will still be available.
