Welcome to patch 8.14. Over the last few patches, the game has seen some pretty hefty changes to the jungle, mid lane, marksmen, and Aatrox. For the next few patches, we'll be dialing it back and doing some smaller-scope changes, mostly balance tweaks.
First, you'll notice two new section as of last patch: simple buffs and simple nerfs. For the most part, that's for self-explanatory changes designed at making a champion stronger or weaker but not really altering their playstyle all that meaningfully.
We're also following up on the Aatrox rework, looking to reduce some of his overbearing lane presence and give him more to do in late-game teamfights. Finally, we're taking a small dive into two of our AP assassins (Fizz and Ahri) to make their gameplay a bit more intuitive and satisfying.
