IF a major game gets a patch in mid-October, we all know Halloween is coming, and League of Legends is no different.
First, Pokémon Go announced its spooky Halloween event. Then Fortnite brought Pumpkin Launchers to the Battle Royale.
In just a few days, League of Legends players can get their hands on some spooky skins, and a number of champions and items have changed.
Here are the biggest changes in the LoL12.20 patch update:
Changes for LoL champions
Thirteen of LoL’s champions have undergone some sort of change in the latest patch.
Aatrox and Maokai have been nerfed by reducing the potency of their passive healing abilities.
Evelynn and Gwen received a buff that increases their damage.
Evelynn’s Hate Spike ability does more damage to marked targets and Gwen’s Snip Snip has been improved.
LoL item changes
Not only have the champions in League been rebalanced, many of the items have been rebalanced as well.
Demonic Embrace now consumes more AP to weaken its effect on tanks.
Frostheart’s base damage has been reduced to stop early game charges.
Mortal Reminder’s damage has been increased but its speed reduced to separate it from Phantom Dancer.
Finally, Sterak’s Gage has been upgraded to match Death’s Dance.
Behavioral system changes in LoL
There is now a “zero tolerance language policy” in-game that detects inappropriate language such as abusive language live.
Anyone attempting to send messages in that language will be muted and other players will be notified.
Even if you honor a player, it will appear in the Add Friends and Friend Requests menus, making it easier for you to contact players.
New event missions
New narrative missions have been added to the latest patch.
These new missions will help you advance your event pass with Tales from the Rift missions.
We haven’t received any further details about the missions, so you’ll just have to find out for yourself.
A few new skins have been added to the game for Halloween, with many female champions getting new witch skins and chromas.
Anivia, Cassiopeia, LeBlanc, Neeko, and Senna can all wear these skins.
The new cosmetics will be available on October 20th, a few days after the patch goes live.
