With League of Legends Patch 11.5 right around the corner, as always summoners are anticipating how Riot plans to help balance the current version of the game.

Here are the 5 things that we want to see in League of Legends Patch 11.5:

5 Things We Want in League of Legends Patch 11.5

Damage Nerfs Across The Board

It's obvious to everyone playing League of Legends right now that the current version of the game is ruled by big damage dealers. Riot should go back to square one, between rune selection and item buffs players are pigeon-holed into obvious choices to make sure they keep up with the game or fear the risk of severely falling behind.

More Diverse Champion Pool

In 11.5 Riot needs to find a way to incorporate more champions into the game. It can be seen through pro play that almost every game contains the same picks with little to no diversity. There's a Kai'Sa in bot lane and a Lillia in jungle almost every game. The current state of the game doesn't encourage players to counter-pick or encourage variety.

Less Mobility Effects

Movement speed buffs and gap closers influence champion select. For the characters that are stuck to their raw movement it makes them sitting ducks for those who can zoom through the map with ease.

Bring Back Jungle

The reality of the current game is that jungle is a step behind either of the solo lanes. With less gold gained from monsters and the XP disparity, it's almost impossible to rely on jungle farm to keep up in-game. While this does promote ganking and coordinating with teammates if anything goes wrong it'll be a severe setback for any team.

More Revamped Skins

With the game evolving Riot has put forth an effort to making sure that character skins are in-line with the current game's aesthetic. The new Bee skins are a beautiful and welcomed addition to the game.
