Hello and welcome to the MOBAFire Patch Summary - 8.6!

This week's patched has been delayed 24 hours for most regions, with most of the world switching over to patch 8.6 on Thursday morning. That said, let's take a look at the patch!

Get silly this season by playing the same champ as your teammates in this wacky and accelerated twist on Summoner's Rift. One For All springs back into action from 3/30/18 at 8:00 AM PT - 4/16/17 at 11:59 PM PT.

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!

Share Your Thoughts!

That's it on our end, time to hear from you guys! What do you think of the Duskblade of Draktharr nerf and accompanying champion changes? Will these Kai'Sa buffs push her over the edge? Is the reworked Guinsoo's Rageblade going to make or break hybrid champions like Kayle? Are you excited for the return of Shurelya's Reverie and One for All? Will you be buying the new Gun Goddess Miss Fortune ultimate skin or any of the other new skins or chromas this patch?

  • The new menu looks awesome.
  • MF skin is great but I feel like it's overpriced. They said it was gonna be cheaper than other ultimate skins, but the full bundle actually costs 250 RP more than a normal ultimate skin soooo.
  • Pink Sivir only has veg pizza so I can't get that chroma ever unlucky.
  • idk why Zed buffs, that's a good ol perma ban right there.

I can finally throw pizza at people without getting in trouble. YES!!!! XD
The one guy who plays League for a good time just to get flamed and hated for having a rough game. Sadly, I know I'm bad at the game, but still, is there no such thing as a bad game?
