Watch out for Udyr in the Jungle this patch 10.10...
League of Legends Patch 10.10 - What to expect
What comes after Patch 10.9? Patch 10.10. Since it still takes some time until the next LoL update goes live, we have a preview of the upcoming changes here. Spoilers: Mid Lane is gonna get it... We're also calling Udyr OP for Patch 10.10.
It is known as the priority position among the Lanes in League of Legends: the Mid Lane. And for some time now, it's been used to decide a team's playoffs. The jungler may be quite helpful, the support as well, but too often, the true strength has been in the mid-lane. Strong abilities, maximum damage. But the era of mid-laners like Diana and Katarina could soon be over. How soon? With the next LoL update: because patch 10.10 brings some interesting changes. Patch 10.9 is still live and we've got some tips you need to dominate before Patch 10.10 drops!
Nerfs and Buffs in LoL-Patch 10.10
Mark "Scruffy" Yetter once again demonstrates Riot's obvious plan to weaken and balance the power of certain positions and strengthen the bottom part of Summoner's Rift. More champions are supposed to be considered solid picks, which is why less popular champions like Udyr, Sivir, Irelia, or Nidalee are buffed, while the eternal OP-favorites like Miss Fortune (Bot Lane) or Diana (Mid Lane) expect a nerf. For Lux to migrate completely to the Bot Lane, she will probably get some support skills polished up in patch 10.10. It seems like Riot Games are aware Udyr exists in League of Legends and have decided to give him an incredible +5 movement speed which we're sure will dominate Summoner's Rift (We're joking of course).
What's going on with fiddlesticks?
Even if the malicious scarecrow is not mentioned by Yetter, there are already some changes for the rework of Fiddlesticks on the LoL test servers. Surrender@20 has leaked that the passive The Ancient Fear is the focus of attention. It now also has an additional fear bonus to invite players to fool their opponents more often - the activation time for Fiddlesticks Scarecrow pose has been increased from 1 to 2 seconds, so we can now psychologically scar more players. Bountiful Harvest (W) has also been slightly modified. It is questionable whether these changes will be implemented in patch 10.10. Game Designer Blake Smith says that the champion is already very strong.
Pulsefire Skins and URF Mode
In addition to the already confirmed Pulsefire Skins for Ekko, Pantheon, Fiora, and Lucian, LoL Patch 10.10 will apparently also include the well-known URF mode. The mode is always popular, because there are almost no cooldowns in it and you can shoot at each other all the time - wonderful.
We're eager to see if there's anything unexpected in the League of Legends 10.10 patch. Next week, Wednesday, we'll know more, as the update will be released on May 13. Until then, you can find all news about the LoL Wild Rift and the patch note dates here with EarlyGame.
