League of Legends Patch 11.18 is scheduled to release on Thursday, Sept. 9. This is one day later than normal due to Labor Day. There is no official patch preview or notes yet, but based on what we know, here are five changes we don't want in League of Legends Patch 11.18.

5 Changes We Don't Want in League of Legends Patch 11.18

1. Tristana Buffs

With Hextech Tristana being released, Riot may as well give her some buffs as well. Just kidding. Tristana is a prime example of an AD Carry who is currently very balanced. She sits in the middle of the pack in terms of win rate but is still able to often get leads and carry games if played well. Hopefully Riot chooses not to give her some buffs just because of the release of her new exclusive skin.

2. Relentless Rengar

Everyone knows the feeling quite well of playing against a fed Rengar. It isn't something someone forgets easily. When fed, Rengar can make almost any champion disappear in a flash. Patch 11.18 is giving Rengar a mini rework that will shift his playstyle to be a bit easier to pull off. With this, we hope it does not turn Rengar into the relentless machine we know he can be already.

3. Don't Touch Akshan

Akshan is finally in a good place after being incredibly weak since his release. Patch 11.17 saw his win rate skyrocket in success due to buffs to his kit. Now that people can finally enjoy Akshan without feeling like a burden to their team, Riot needs to not touch Akshan.

4. Mid Lane Lucian

Riot officially pushed Lucian out of mid lane with his recent changes. Lucian was never intended to be played in mid lane, and Riot affirmed that decision in the last patch. This change has helped many mage players out and seems to be overall healthier for the game.

5. Senna Changes

Senna is currently also in a perfect spot to duo alongside Lucian. Her kit seems to be well balanced for the first time in awhile, along with having a solid identity as a champion. Before, Senna was always hovering in both the AD Carry and Support role.
