League of Legends 13.7 patch nerfs fan favourite champions


LEAGUE of Legends receives regular updates, about once a month, and the newest patch is bringing some big changes. 

Ahead of the 2023 Mid-Season International competition, League of Legends wants to make sure the meta is in a good state for competitive play. 

Olaf is one of the champions that will see a change.

Because of that, they’ve made some pretty big nerfs to some popular champions, in particular jungle champions, which already received big changes last month. 

Here are the biggest changes in League of Legends patch 13.7. 

LoL 13.7: Jungle nerfs

In an effort to make the jungle play less dominant in the long run, League of Legends is introducing quite a few nerfs for champions who primarily operate in the jungle role. 

Vi, Sejuani, and Lee Sin are all getting nerfed, and a number of other champions like Wukong are getting minor adjustments to balance them out. 

Vi in particular is getting big changes, with a drop to her base damage on two of her abilities, Vault Breaker and Relentless Force. 

She’s been one of the most popular picks in competitive League of Legends lately, since she is quite tanky but still deals a lot of damage. 

LoL 13.7: Champions nerfed

Along with the champions listed above getting nerfs for jungle champions, a number of other champions have also been pulled back a bit. 

Here’s the full list: 

  • Annie
  • Lee Sin 
  • Olaf
  • Rammus
  • Sejuani
  • Thresh
  • Veigar
  • Vi
  • Wukong
  • Zeri

Most of these changes are quite small, with the most affected champions being the jungle champions mentioned above. 

That said, most of the champions being nerfed are champions that are currently dominating in a way they weren’t intended to, so they’ve been scaled back. 

LoL 13.7: Champions buffed

Alongside the nerfs, a number of champions that have fallen behind in recent months and years have also been buffed to make them stronger. 

Here’s the full list of every buffed champion: 

  • Alistar
  • Azir
  • Graves
  • Kalista
  • Katarina
  • Kha’Zix
  • Yasuo

Pretty much all of these buffs are the result of nerfs in previous patches, and many of these champions haven’t been performing well. 

Riot Games has also said that future patches will include more buffs, aimed at champions the company would like to see doing well in pro leagues. 

The 13.7 patch also ends support for all 32-bit clients, meaning that players on older computers might not be able to play anymore.
