Awooo and welcome to the MOBAFire Patch Summary - 7.1!

This is the actual official first patch of the 2017 ranked season! To prepare the newly defrosted Rift for a new season of ranked play, this patch includes a number of balance changes targeted at staple champions, one single item, as well as a few buffs and bugfixes for some of the weaker champions in League. And like 20 nerfs!

Warwick, the resident wolf also receives his rework after years of everyone waiting during this patch, so be sure to check out the details on his kit if you haven't already.

Check out the full patch notes for details on any changes that interest you.

This section is brought to you by THE Fatelblade:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The dank weedwick has finally been changed and we’re left with Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun! After a retcon and a redesign, we’re left with something familiar, but different! He has gained myriad of new and updated skills, and as is the treat nowadays, his ult is a skillshot! He has been transformed into an odious beast that hunts down its prey, never being able to satiate his eternal thirst. For a full rundown of his abilities, visit his reveal page here!. Also check this post here!

Though he can’t see us, we can see him getting changed! Lee Sin, the Blind Monk has been “modernized”. He has lost the stealth detection on his Tempest, and has lost damage on his Dragon's Rage. That dragon is not the only one that has been affected, however! Shyvana has lost the bonus damage to monsters on her Burnout, and will now have a harder time fitting in with her buddies at the .Drake Pit.

The last champion has cast a shadow over the top lane. With Camille, the Steel Shadow, receiving multiple nerfs. Nearly every aspect of her kit has been nerfed in one way or another. She has lost shield duration on her Adaptive Defenses, her health growth has been lowered, her Hookshot gives more warning, and her ultimate, Hextech Ultimatum has a shorter knock away stun. Another top lane behemoth has also been hit by the ban hammer. Specifically, Poppy, the Keeper of the Hammer! Her Iron Ambassador shield lasts a shorter amount of time, and Keeper's Verdict, her ultimate, has lost snapcast damage to lower her bust. Perhaps now our teammates won’t feed on Yasuo anymore.

Camille may have been an issue top lane, but the rest of the map can agree that Syndra is a *****, killing people with one cast of her ultimate, Unleashed Power. In order to fix this issue, Riot has increased the cooldown at levels 6 and 11! She has also had her Force of Will changed, allowing her to deal bonus true damage instead of being able to carry multiple balls. She has also lost some base damages and ratios on the Force of Will. Our constantly changing buddy Ryze has had his Overload shield and movement speed nerfed at nearly every value, hopefully creating a champion that is more enjoyable to lane against.


Item Changes

Void Gate Duration: 150 seconds ⇒ 120 seconds
Cooldown - 150 seconds ⇒ 120 seconds
Voidspawn HP decay - 10% current health every 0.25 seconds ⇒ 20% current health every 0.25 seconds
Voidspawn Structure Damage: 5 per level (max 90) ⇒ 20 per level (max 360)
Removed! - Voidspawn no longer gain 50 health per level
Bugfix - Killing a voidspawn no longer increases your creep score



Notable Misc. Changes / Fixes

  • Living Jungle

    • Scryer’s Bloom: The Auto-Pings on champions has been revamped to be distinguishable from player pings. Recealed wards now also trigger a small auto-ping.

    • Honeyfruit: The pickup radius of the fruits slightly reduced.

    • Blast Cone: Both Malzahar and Rengar can now be affected by allied Blast Cone triggers.

  • Jungle Experience

    • First Clear: Murkwolf, Raptor, Krug, and Gromp camps grant 25% less experience on the first clear

  • League Client Update

    • New Features!
      • Bots available in custom play
      • More settings added under Sound, Interface, and Game
      • Ascension will be added as a rotating game mode

Probably a few too many exclamation marks in the report! Makes everything seem really excitable! I felt my heart racing, swept away by the enthusiasm! Nice work though, thanks for the summary :)
