  • Backdoor Bonus Tower Damage Reduction: 66 percent to 75 percent
  • Domino Bonus (temporary damage reduction after the previous tower is destroyed): 35 percent to 50 percent

Riot said these changes to towers were made in response to feedback it received about the towers feeling too weak. The company added that it’s “pretty happy” with the current average game length of about 17 minutes and will be watching these changes closely.

Watchlist

Riot said these are some things it’s looking at and may make changes to in the future.

  • Smite: Junglers are leveling up too quickly right now and outscaling laners.
  • Blitzcrank: His Rocket Fist (1) is too reliable in the lane.
  • Nami: Her crowd control seems strong as she can lock down key targets with ease.
  • Marksmen: This class of champions is performing really well due to the joystick controls. Due to this, Jhin is underperforming because of his reload downtime.
  • Jax: The champion is able to split push to victory and teams are forced to send multiple members to stop him. Riot hopes that the buffs to towers will stop him but it’s still keeping an eye on him.
