Updated (May 23):
Tonight’s latest changes include some good news for Teemo and Malphite fans – all changes in 9.11 PBE have been reverted. Wukong’s changes were reverted and the three will be tweaked in future PBE cycle.
Jayce’s Cannon Q – Shock Blast damage increased to 70/115/160/205/250 (+100% bAD) – (from 65/110/155/200/245 (+120% bAD))
Compared to the live stats, his damage will be 70/115/160/205/250 (+100% bAD) – (from 70/120/170/220/270 (+120% bAD).
The 9.11 PBE started on May 14th and has seen a lot of changes until today. We focused on the balance changes to champions, items, and ARAM, so we’ll continue in doing so. The latest changes went live to PBE yesterday night, focusing on various nerfs to champions.
Let’s check out the current situation in League of Legends’ Public Beta Environment, and remember that they are all tentative changes and might not make it to the live server in this form. Champions will continue to be tweaked throughout the 9.11 PBE cycle, and if the devs do not manage to balance them, we’ll see many of these changes reverted, and the champions again tested in the next PBE cycle.
That being said, here are the nerfs and buffs for today.
