League of Legends Patch 10.18 notes were released revealing a slew of balance changes are soon coming to Summoner's Rift. Patch 10.18 focuses on reducing the power level of seemingly ever present professional picks including Galio and Ashe, while buffing champions who have failed to see much play time on the professional stage. League of Legends Patch 10.18 seeks to diversify professional champion pools as well as sees nerfs to the Guardian rune.
