This week’s League of Legends patch notes specifically cater to the highest level of play, targeting the pros and the upcoming Mid-Season Invitational, which is scheduled to kick off in Busan, South Korea on May 10.

MSI 2022 is set to be played on Patch 12.8, but this patch will act as a testing ground for the devs to get everything shipshape ahead of the first international event of the year. Riot is aiming to shake up the meta to allow for “more diverse picks,” buffing underperforming champions like Pantheon and Wukong and nerfing strong items such as Galeforce and Winter’s Approach.

Here’s the full list of balance changes coming to League in Patch 12.7.
