Hello and welcome to the MOBAFire Patch Summary - 9.22!

This is League of Legends' last patch before the preseason of season 10, so it is important to take note of this latest set of changes before you make one final attempt to climb the ranked ladder. In patch 9.22, the focus lies mainly on nerfing some champions which have been doing a little too well recently, with Kai'Sa, Kayle and Xayah being among the champions targeted.

Of course, patch 9.21 also marks the release of Senna, who will be available on November 10. Wielding light and shadow, compassion and pain, Senna is designed as a support marksman who wields a large relic cannon as her main weapon of choice. To learn more about her abilities, make sure to visit her champion page and/or watch the Senna Champion Spotlight.

As always, be sure to check out the full patch notes for details on any changes that interest you. For TFT players, patch 9.22 introduces a completely new set of champions, along with new classes, origins and more. For the full details, make sure to check out the 9.22 patch notes for TFT.
