Legends of Runeterra’s limited format, Expedition Mode, is getting another set of changes with Patch 1.6’s upcoming release. 

Compared to the past couple of patches that the format received, this one aims to bring no overall changes to the macro rates in terms of how cards are offered. Instead, it makes more changes to which cards are offered in each respective archetype.

Riot said Freljord as a region has been overperforming in the limited format, partly due to the buffs that it’s been showered with in the last two patches. The way Riot aims to bring Freljord down a couple of pegs is by reducing the amount of beefy and high-end Overwhelm units that the region can see. This change gives opponents of Freljord an opportunity to come back before getting run over by a ton of excess damage in combat.
