What's strange is that on this set of preview notes, there are more buffs than nerfs at the moment. Of course, this is a preview. Things could change, but it's nice to see the inclusion of more champions in the buffed section.

Yasuo, Lucian, Ziggs, Neeko, and Jax are just some of the champions on the buff list - yes, Yasuo is getting buffed. We'll be keen to see the actual numbers to find out how significant this buff will be.
