Patch 11.5 Predictions

Patch 11.4 just came out and with it, the top lane continues to struggle with the absence of Bruisers. Sure, we saw Camille get a nerf, but was that truly enough? No. She will continue to dominate the meta and continue to be perma-banned with the slight nerf to her kit.

This is why we foresee a second nerf coming her way in Patch 11.5. She is just too strong in the top lane and not many champions can go up against her. Sure, there are other strong top laners like Garen and Cho’Gath but they’re countered by Camille, which means she will have to get banned.

Samira Patch 11.5 Prediction

Seraphine is another champion who will likely be looked at in Patch 11.5 since she is very dominant both in the mid lane as well as a support. Her kit allows for her to poke out opponents or work as a shielding and healing support. With the buffs to mage items, she has only become stronger this patch, so we do believe she will be hit with a nerf in the coming weeks.

Samira got hit with the Aphelios treatment. Hard. Her whole rework has made her fall off quite heavily, which might mean that we won’t be seeing her for a while, which is why we believe she might need a slight buff once more, but with her kit being so extreme it will be difficult to balance her out and find the sweet spot where she won’t be overbearing and powerful. It might be a while until we see a buff to her. It took almost a year for Aphelios to get back to the meta… so who knows.

We also think that Bruiser items like Goredrinker might need a buff since Bruisers have completely fallen off the map. There are quite a few anti-healing items in the game that negate the power of Goredrinker and therefore make this item obsolete, which in turn is what made Bruisers fall off the priority. Hopefully, in Patch 11.5 we can see something done for this issue.

So, there you have it, a couple of wishes and predictions we’ve got for LoL Patch 11.5. What do you think of the current state of League?
