The Legends of Runeterra World Championship is in full swing, but that hasn't stopped Riot from introducing gameplay changes. Released in a quick hotfix so as not to ruin any preparation for the annual esports tournament, a small batch of overpowered cards were swiftly nerfed.

The devs revealed that we can expect a more detailed set of balance changes early next year. But that being said, let's turn out attention back to the recently introduced card nerfs.
