Season’s greetings all! This not-technically-a-patch (no skins or new features) brings one more round of balance changes to stuff your stockings with. You'll notice most of these patch notes are light on context, which is because most of the changes are in the "simple buff" or "simple nerf" spaces—we basically just want a champ or item to be stronger or weaker without significantly changing decision making. Pyke and Akali are the two exceptions, so we stuck 'em at the top.
Since this is a small patch we'll share a quick preview of 9.1, the first patch of next year. Expect to see a bunch more buffs to individual marksmen as well as sizable changes for Ornn and Sejuani to bring their regular play and pro play performances closer in line with each other. We'll also be following up on preseason's rune changes.
That's it for us! We on the patch notes team wish you a happy Snowdown and thank you for reading through over 72,000 words of patch notes this year. See you in 2019!
