Riot has some pretty big changes coming to League of Legends Patch 9.21. Among those changes is a nerf to the consistently strong Pyke, who has been a nuisance in the bot lane for nearly his entire existence.

Mark Yetter, Riot’s lead gameplay designer, tweeted earlier today that Pyke’s HP per level will be decreased by 10, and his passive grey health will drop from 30-81 percent to 20-50 of the damage taken.
