120FPS Mode

High-end devices like OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, Google Pixel 5, ASUS ROG Phone 2, and Razer Phone 2 will soon have the option to switch to 120fps mode. Though, to note, it is still in testing, so it may not be perfect right off the bat.

Changes to Champions

There are a number of balance changes to champions this patch. Alistar, Corki, Dr. Mundo, Galio, Shyvana and Vi will receive nerfs. On the other hand, Blitzcrank, Diana, Leona, Pantheon and Tristana are being buffed to help them find their place in the meta.

Item Changes

In addition, a couple of items are being adjusted too. Infinity and Sunfire Aegis are too powerful, so are being nerfed. However, Glorious Enchant is getting a bug fix.

Game System Changes

To make the laning phase in competitive gameplay more stable, the outer turrets will be harder to destroy. They now have extra armor and magic resist in Baron and mid lane for the first few minutes of the match.
