Riot Games' Ahri rework in League of Legends has boosted her win rate and play rate in Patch 12.3. One of League of Legends' veteran champions, Ahri, has finally received an overdue rework which has made her one of the strongest mid laners in the game.

Ahri's play rate was sitting at 5% before the rework which has been low for the popular champion. However, with her rework, Ahri's play rate has jumped to 14% this patch. Ahri's win rate has also gone up from 50% to 51.97%, and in high ratings her win rate is at 54%.

Before her 12.3 rework, the last time Ahri had been worked on was Patch 10.8. Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, is known for her high mobility and burst damage, but had been having problems with her abilities. With no rework since season 10, the face of League of Legends had been falling behind the current meta of the game.

We've detailed the balances and changes made to Season 12 Ahri:
