Latest May 8 Update in PBE
The latest update in the 9.10 PBE cycle today shows that all changes done to Malphite and Teemo have been reverted. However, the two champions’ skills will continue to be tweaked in the next few days. The other champions mentioned below or in our previous 9.10 PBE articles might also suffer some changes that will first be tested in PBE.
We recently saw that the PBE server got some more updates for the 9.10 patch. Considering that patch updates in League of Legends are usually released twice a month, we should see 9.10 be released on May 15. The new champion Yuumi – which we fully revealed in this article – is already being tested in PBE, so we should expect to see her in action next week!
But before that, let’s take a look at the champion changes that are constantly changing in the PBE server.
