LoL Update 9.14 Introduces Counter Mechanics to a Number of Champions
League of Legends has been updated to version 9.14. Besides usual balance changes and bug fixes, the patch also introduces several counter mechanics to some champions’ existing abilities.
The developers believe that counter mechanics will be useful for the game in long-term, encouraging diversity in picks. Moreover, it should allow making balance changes less frequently. They also stated that these changes are the last significant mechanic updates to champions before the end of the season. The following mechanics have been added to champions’ abilities:
- Anti-shield: Blitzcrank, Renekton
- Anti-healing: Katarina, Kled
- Flat damage reduction: Fizz, Leona
- True Sight: Karma, LeBlanc, Morgana
- Anti-mobility: Ahri, Cassiopeia, Poppy
The full list of changes, which also includes Teamfight Tactics patch notes, is available on the official website.
