Hello and welcome to the MOBAFire Patch Summary - 8.15!

The Akali rework hits this patch! The Rogue Assassin has a brand new kit and some shiny new splash arts to go with it. This patch also includes three new Pool Party skins, several bundles of Pool Party chromas as well as chromas for Headhunter Akali . Balance changes in 8.15 are focused only on a handful of champions, while several support and Marksman items are being changed to affect the current bot lane meta.

Check out the full patch notes for details on any changes that interest you, and be sure to check out Riot's video summary below!

Does anyone know how to fix the gray find match button and the play button that takes a while before you can select a game mode?

Irelia nerf reverted and she gets buffed on top of it. That's disgusting, Riot.

Ionian Fervor
Base on-hit damage per stack reduced to 1 - 12 (based on level) from 2.5 - 16.5 (based on level)

Ionian Fervor
Base damage per stack increased to 4 - 17 (based on level) from 1 - 12 (based on level).

The one thing that made Irelia OP was her massive on-hit magic damage early game. Way too strong, wins any 1v1, impossible to itemize against since she's supposed to be an AD champ. It got nerfed. And now it's even stronger than it used to be.

So a level 3 Irelia now has 22 on-hit magic damage, which procs on each Q (used to be like 6 pre-revert). 40 on a level 9 Irelia. Urgh.

I give up. If you can't beat them, join them.

riot needs to leave Irelia alone and focus on what is needed. Irelia got a change just about every patch, and it feels like they do something just to do it with her now... Crit ad does not need to be changed too much now in my opinion either for now
