New 120 FPS support (in testing)

Riot is slowly rolling out the 120 FPS support to more devices. The devs said that since the feature is still in testing, players could experience performance issues. In this case, they can switch back to a lower frame rate.

  • The 120 FPS support has been added to the following high-end devices in patch 2.2a: OnePlus 9 & OnePlus 9 Pro; Google Pixel 5; ASUS ROG Phone 2; Razer Phone 2. 

Champion changes

Alistar

For a support, Alistar is doing a lot of damage in the game. Riot is nerfing his (2) Headbutt, which players have been using to take down turrets quickly.

Turrets

Riot has said that it’s seeing a lot of early grouping in competitive play. As a result, the laning phase is almost non-existent in these matches. A lot of changes are being made to turrets to prevent this from happening.

  • During the first four minutes (previously three minutes), Solo (Baron) Lane and Mid Lane outer turrets gain 90 bonus Armor and Magic Resist.

  • Two champions in total: 10 Armor and Magic Resist
  • Three champions in total: 100 → 250 Armor and Magic Resist
  • Four champions in total: 200 → 300 Armor and Magic Resist
  • Five champions in total: 300 → 350 Armor and Magic Resist
