Another exciting week of eSports lies behind us. We will go through the most recent League of Legends patch update and also discuss the upcoming 11th CS:GO Major Championship.
Every time a new patch comes out almost everyone hates it no matter what. Either the champions get too much nerfs, or the buffs makes the champion too strong or completely change the playing style of the champion. But Riot is going to make those changes no matter what.
Their recently released patch 7.7 is very much on the cards and the League of Legends Lead Gameplay Designer Andrei ‘Meddler’ van Roon has shared his views.
He says that Riot has just initiated the work on the upcoming LoL patch 7.7. It hasn’t been decided yet what specific changes the game truly needs. But it is for sure that Lissandra will be getting a couple of Buffs along with some of the other champion,s which includes Bard since Riot was not satisfied with some of the changes in 7.6. Nerfs are to be delivered to Graves, and it is not sure that whether Kassadin and Lux will be getting Buffs. Udyr is also almost guaranteed to get some changes along with some junglers. And lastly, Aatrox will also receive a couple of minor changes as it depends heavily on the performance of the champion in the course of next week.
However, the talk of the week is LeBlanc, which according to the community is a far too weak because of all the nerfs the champion has received. But according to Meddler, the possible discomfort of the players is because LeBlanc players are not seeing the better picture of the post-patch changes, maxing out the wrong ability and are ultimately not playing the champion up to the standard.
The Lead Gameplay Designer says that the players tend to max “W” in the game which is not the need of the hour now and also contributes to the overall poor performance of the champion. He finished the talk on LB after saying that Riot will be looking to make further changes to the champion depending on how the players perform on it in the next few weeks to come.
Competition organizers have announced that the Romanian region, PGL, will be hosting the 11th Major tournament this July at the Tauron Arena in Krakow, Poland.
A total audience of more than 15,000 spectators is expected at the arena. It is of great rejoice to the enthusiasts of eSports as they can watch their favorite teams from around the globe fight for the ultimate glory.
Tauron Arena will host the main event on July 21st-23rd. But before this main event, four regional qualifiers have been announced by the PGL. They will include regions of Asia, Americas, CIS, and Europe. The announcement regarding the 8 available is yet to be revealed by PGL.
To make it through the qualifier race for the PGL Major, the teams that were not able to secure the Legends title at the ELEAGUE Major will have to step it up a few notches. The following teams have secured a placement in the following major, as they have secured the Legends title by finishing with a top eight placement:
