These changes were systematic - we wanted to across the board make characters better at early game combat. We felt in many cases that the problem was either stat based or that abilities deal too little damage at the first couple levels. This problem is fundamental to the game - we want the game to be fun and exciting early on. So, we're fixing this problem.

Might this make some imba characters slightly more imba? Maybe. But it's important to get the game feeling the way we want it to before it's super balanced. This is beta, after all!

In general our design philosophy is to make something fun, then bug free, and then balanced.

As an FYI, we do have a planned remake for Sivir coming soon, as well as possibly Ashe.

So, isn't the point of beta to actually balance the game before the release.....

And if you do have are going to remake Sivir and Ashe wasn't the tweak to them just a waste of time and pointless.....


The game is currently fun as it ..... but seriously tweaks were made to every single char just to 'improve early game'? The pace of early game should be a bit slow...not so level 1 skills take half ur hp


As good as this patch is....I honestly believe atleast half of it was unecessary and a total waste of time when other issues could have been addressed.

I just updated the patch, and when i go log in it's asking for my beta key again. I enter that and it says it's invalid. Is anyone else getting the same problem?

Not crazy about some of the stronger heroes getting buffed... but we'll see what happens. I like the new early game damage buffs though.

Damn. Still no new map. =(

I'd prefer a new map/mode of play over new champions =(

Until we get some new maps, LoL is a rehash of DotA.
