Fans React to LoL Patch 12.7

For reference, here is the official Patch Preview that @TheTruexy posted on Twitter with regards to the new Patch, which is expected to be released into the game around Tuesday 12th April 2022:

1) Champion Buffs:

  • Gwen
  • Pantheon
  • Yasuo
  • Yone
  • Wukong
  • Neeko
  • Gangplank
  • Kalista
  • Lillia
  • Karthus

2) Champion Nerfs:

  • Zeri
  • Ryze
  • Lee Sin
  • Jayce

3) Champion Adjustments

  • Rengar Followup

4) System Buffs:

  • Umbral GlaiveAbyssal Mask

5) System Nerfs:

  • Winter Approach/Fimbulwinter
  • Moonstone Renewer
  • Galeforce
  • Time Warp Tonic

The reaction from players on Twitter has been pretty negative, with many questioning why so many buffs and nerfs were needed to be made.

One gamer tweeted: “You are not living in the reality of the game! You are nerfing 3 of the weakest champs, nerfing the worst AD item in the game, nerfing Fimbulwinter that’s already bad and almost never’s efficient and buffing 3 of the most broken champs Karth, Yasuo, Yone! Is this a late April 1st?

Another player would question why Jinx has not been scheduled to be nerfed, claiming that the developers are trying to keep the meta based around the lead on the massively popular Arcane series on Netflix.. They tweeted: “Where is the Jinx nerf? Literally high pick/ban with good winrate everywhere soloq and pro play. Are you just gonna watch Arcane meta keep going? Ok…”

It’s quite shocking to see such a large amount of buffs made to Champions as part of this new update, and it’s not surprising to see that there has been quite some backlash. We’re expecting that there will be even more over the coming days and when the actual Patch goes live in-game on Tuesday 12th April 2022.
