Players have already been introduced to the League of Legends Season 2023 patch. LoL Patch 13.24 was released on December 6th, and shortly after, the publisher decided to make additional adjustments via a micropatch or so-called “b” patch. Such patches are usually released to quickly solve problems.
Hero changes in patch 13.24b
This patch includes changes to eight League champions, including Yona, who requires improvements, and the new champion Hvei. Seer has been on the radar of League developers since the game’s 166th character hasn’t made much of an impact and currently only has a 36.74 win rate, according to Lolalytics.

Major changes in the Arena mode (2v2v2v2)
Riot Games presented three main components of the mode: Strategy, Balance and Arena Mechanics.
The company strives to create an exciting combination of tactical depth and strategic decision-making. They highlight the importance of scenarios where players take risks and tactical decisions play a crucial role. The company’s focus is clearly on champions with outstanding results.
On the issue of balance, Riot notes the relative balance of classes on average, but acknowledges the weakness of mages in a systemic sense. Therefore, a buff is being introduced for mages, including Liandry’s Torment.
