Less than a month has passed since the first Patch of the Season was released into the live servers, and we have only been playing with Patch 11.2 for a week, but Riot Games does not stop working on their famous MOBA and we already know what kind of changes can we expect for the upcoming version: Patch 11.3.
While the previous updates brought little changes and adjustments to some items and Champions, and some new skins, the new Patch will contain a lot of modifications aimed to stabilize the metagame.
As always, it has been Mark Yetter, Gameplay Design Director for League of Legends, who has brought the list of changes that we can expect, despite it only shows, for now, a general Preview of Patch 11.3.
