For everyone involved in League of Legends, it is nice to see normality returning. On January 20, Riot Games announced that they have suffered a social engineering attack.

Riot Phroxzon stated the theme of this patch is to put a heavy focus on ranged supports vs melee supports. Along with changes to the bot lane, Phroxzon stated there are too many champions right now that are benefiting too much from early snowballing, meaning when they get ahead early, they are more powerful than they should be at that stage.
