This is far from a micro-patch.

Riot Games wanted to introduce a small League of Legends patch to hold players over until the new year. But the new update is more extensive than you might think.

Patch 9.24b addresses key issues in the meta that couldn’t wait until 2020. Aphelios, the new marksman to join League’s roster, is proving to be a bit overtuned. Champions like Gnar and Ezreal, on the other hand, are falling behind the competition. And dragons are proving to be way too crucial of a win-deciding factor since early objective control can quickly spiral into a sure victory.

Here are the full notes for League of Legends Patch 9.24b.
