The League of Legends developers are hoping to “shake up the meta” in Patch 11.9.

With the Mid-Season Invitational just around the corner, the devs are looking to bring a “diversified crew” onto the international stage in Reykjavík, Iceland from May 6 to 23, removing Gragas from the spotlight and allowing champions like Shen and Lulu to shine.

Patch 11.9 is expected to hit the live servers on Wednesday, April 28, bringing plenty of changes to Summoner’s Rift.

Here’s the full list of notes and updates for the game’s upcoming patch.
